"I Got" as written by Jerrad Shain, Wes Geer, Mark Young, Ben Vaught, Chad Benekos and Doug Boyce....
In the night where I live,
There's strange force in your kiss oh
All's divine in desire

With an ire of philosophy,
Burning scrolls in the naked heat,
Oh how coy is your little boy. No!

'Cause I know it don't read that well. Yeah!
I got buried
No it won't be long before I rise in
I got buried
No it won't be long. Yeah!

In the night where I live,
Your children sway they fuel the kitch
Raise their glass to Soviet cries in the ward,
And in shadows

Outright, in times of old,
So the fumes are falling, smell them burn,
Like always, yes always.
Now hear!

'Cause I know it don't read that well.
And I know, only time will tell me
I got buried
No it won't be long before I rise in.
I got buried
No it won't be long before I rise in song

And I know it don't read that well, yeah
I got buried
No it won't be long before I rise in.
I got oh buried
Oh no
'Cause I know I got you

    General CommentThis is the kind of song where the melody and his voice pluck the heart strings, regardless of what they're singing about.

    My InterpretationWhat music and love is all about. Life kicks your ass and you get "buried" - but you recover with the help of music, "rise in song", and love "I got you".

    The "Soviet cries" could refer to a guy in rehab with the TV blaring CNN warning about how bad the world outside can be. Kitch is slang for throwing up.

    Nice tune - well constructed with a kaleidoscope of influences.

    General CommentByt the way. I believe the band itself wrote the song not "Geer and Shaine" as mentioned above. That is another song (with the same name) from another band called Hed PE.

    General Comment"Your children sway they fuel the kitch,

    This is a little random:
    Kitch is not a very common word to use, and you don't really talk about Soviet very much either. One of my favorite singers, Regina Spektor, has an album called Soviet Kitch. Sort of weird because I was just listening to that album earlier...

    General CommentI Love this song but for the longest time I thought he was saying, I got married instead of buried, which still is good, but I can totally see someone changing the lyrics to married and it being really cute haha
