"Get Away" as written by and Max Joel Bloom Daniel Blumberg....
Break it down and then break it up again
Me and my guitar drowning down and down
Not even the pain kicks in
Tell me when the pain kicks in

Oh I can't get away

Panoramic view, that's one thing I won't do
No shouted abuse from the corner of my mind
Not even the pain kicks in
Tell me when the pain kicks in

Oh I can't get away

Summer sun says get out more, I need you
I want you but I can't get this feeling off my mind
I want you, I need you

I can't get away

Summer sun says get out more, I need you
I want you but I can't get this feeling off my mind
I want you, I need you

    My Opinioni love the opening lyric, "break it down and then break it up again," seems to fit with the whole Yuck sound: rehashing the past (Pavement, Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub, Sonic Youth), but putting their own stamp on it. It's like the first lyric you hear of theirs colours their whole project.

    And I think the "summer sun" might be referencing that infamous Pavement line from "Gold Soundz:" "so drunk in the August sun," plus it's arguably Pavement's best song.

    General Commentthis song speaks to me so perfectly right now.

    recently was in a car accident and broke my neck. (no permanent damage) im in a neck brace for 3 months and can't do anything.

    "not even the pain kicks in" totally explains the complete and total apathy i have.

    and the girl i have a crush on is so sympathetic towards me. The attention is cool but i know why im getting it and that makes it seem shallow.

    TELL ME WHEN THE PAIN KICKS INN!

    My InterpretationHorribly lame, but I interpret this song as having a girl/guy you can't get off your mind. That's the situation I'm in right now and it kinda speaks to me.
