"Overdue" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
You're a few years overdue.
I spent them waiting here for you.
Now your charity's refused,
I can name a penance for abuse.

Twenty four years overdue,
what kind of role model are you?
Very least learn not to do,
I think I might be over you.

Do hope I won't
Learn to make
The same mistakes,
That you would
Make me aware
That only fear,
My only hope,
Is letting go.

Went on a limb for you,
Capsized when I turned twenty two.
Did it burn as bad for you?
No bottle serves to soothe my wounds.

Do hope I won't
Learn to make
The same mistakes,
That you would
Make me aware
That only fear,
My only hope,
Is letting go.
My only hope
Is letting go.

You're a few years overdue.
I spent them waiting here for you.

    General CommentThis is the first track off of the new album "On A Wire" which is scheduled to be released on May 14, 2002. I got the lyrics by going to thegetupkids.net where they have an e-card of this song which I downloaded and listened to over and over to get the lyrics. So if they're a bit off, I'm sorry, forgive (and forget whatever was said, hehe).

    General CommentI already love this song. I cannot wait until On A Wire comes out. I'll be in the store that day, I'll bet. Does anyone know where I can download any of the other songs off the album. I know there is a way, if someone ripped 'em already. I'm sneaky when it comes to my favorite bands. In any event, I can't wait until it comes out.

    General CommentI love get up kids. This song is off their new album though and it sounds different them their stuff of the past. It's still good, but i guess every band has to evolve. I hope the whole cd is good. oh and i think this song is about waiting for someone to come around, like you've liked them for so long but they never noticed and now they finally like you but you're just like "it's kinda late"

    General CommentI agree sort of with vacantjoshs. The new album isn't nearly as good as any of tguk's older stuff. "Campfire Kansas" is my favorite song on the album. It is slowly growing on me, though. If this album had come out by any other band, I probably wouldn't have given it the opportunity.
