I, I am clearly broken and no one knows what to do
Pieces of the puzzle don't fit, so, I pound them into you
Itching is the pulse inside
Creeping out to come alive
Its just doing what its going to do

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

I can't wait to rip my eyes out and look at you
Peace through pain is precious especially when its done by you
Itching is the pulse inside
Creeping out to come alive
Its just doing what its going to do

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line
And I'm, I'm hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I've left behind

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line
And I'm, I'm hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I've left behind

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

    Song MeaningJD said this:

    'Get Up' is about the recession. I wish everyone would shut the fuck up and have some fun. Every day I've got to hear about unemployment and people starving.

    General Commentthe narrator is humanity
    seeing how radically broken it is, its hopeless situation
    and deep inside the species, something stirs and starts to come alive

    Can't wait to see in a whole new way,
    and in the middle of all the agony
    is the eye of the storm,
    a calm that can't be touched,

    peace through pain is the most
    radical kind, a sacred surrender

    and the world burns on
    so the narrator holds tighter not to lose the little it thinks it has
    haunted by the past, dragged down by the self importance
    it has to drop to make it to the other side

    - and still, the ole ways hold tighter than ever, ordering to
    keep moving, keep going, don't slow down, don't stop, keep fighting the inevitable

    Song Meaningwell given my mental state lately i believe this song is about a relationship

    1st verse: he is sad and "broken" trying to force shit to work feeling dead but its time to

    Chorus: everything is bad and holding onto the bullshit not knowing or being able to stop so
    shut the fuck up quit feeling like shit get angry, get up and demand the respect and love you
    were promised and deserve!

    2nd verse: utter desperation the want to tear at your face and beat yourself in frustration while seeing the other for who and what they are, so used to the pain that it becomes the norm. but there is something buried down that is working its way out like it does eventually, rage!

    2nd chorus: everything is bad and holding onto the bullshit not knowing or being able to stop hiding behind submission and fear, unable to get rid of the memories of better days before all this bullshit.
    so do something about it.


    meh dunno but it feels right and is a decent start i believe :)

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about how our modern politics are crumbling but being forced together through violence and lies. Now we have a runaway system that none of us bear to admit is fucked up and heading for doom.

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is really simple. If you know about J.D. then you know he has a lot it mental health issues due to his childhood and other things ( which he openly talks about) In a lot of his songs he separates himself from his superego ( inner boss/inner critic) and this song is no different. Instead he’s consciously telling his superego to shut up and do something about all the negative crap you’re throwing out there. I sorta consider this a positive song.
