"Come On" as written by and Kate/blackwood Holmes....
You've got your lights turned
So they can see you
The very best of what
You've got to offer
Tell them what your hands were made for
Tell them who your mouth was made for

You've got your profits
And your mathematicians
The vocal fuel of a generation
Tell me what my hands were made for
Tell me who my mouth was made for

And please don't be mad at me
You'll get what you ask for
Come on, come on, come on
So very close to what you had expected
It makes it hard to keep my head up level
Tell me I'm what your hands were made for
Tell me I'm who your mouth was made for

And if you come down on me
Well you'll get what you ask for
Come on, come on, come on
I, I want to get myself back
High I want to get myself back
All of the things that you promised me
That you'd be
Now your hands are tired
And all of the things that you promised me
That you'd need
Now my hands are tired
Come on, come on, come on

    General CommentHawt song, correct. It's like "to hell with what you say our bodies are designed for, we're built for each other, dammit."

    General CommentEither way, the song is about the frustration of being held to the wrong expectations and the desire to follow one's true passion. The song supports this theme in both a sexual and educational/motivational context.

    "you've got your prophets and your mathematicians
    the vocal fuel of a generation"
    this part is referring more to the motivational context...

    but who can deny the sexual power in Sara's voice?
    and "if you come down on me you'll get what you asked for"

    General Commentthe version of this song with different lyrics than these (which is also like a full minute longer, and much better in my opinion) is from Under Feet Like Ours, their first studio album.

    General CommentThis song was written by Sara..about her "being stupid" She was struggling in one of her classes in highschool, and her teacher expected it of her, and her difficulty with accepting the fact that this subject may not be her forte.
