"The Worst Idea" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
I'll go with the worst idea
If everyone takes the toll
Keep following anyone
Who digs a deeper hole
Sing me a tune
Wasn't this bond built forever?
The anchor that strong
My money, it changes how we used to value most
So over the short ascent that comes at any cost
Sing me a tune
Wasn't this bond built forever?
The anchor that strong
Didn't we build this together?
The worst just go wrong
The worst just go wrong
On and on
How do you win so many enemies?
I'm open to any good news
What if the world falls in?
On the only option we knew
Sing me a tune
Wasn't this bond built forever?
The anchor that strong
Didn't we build this together?
The worst just go wrong
I'll go with the worst idea
If everyone takes the toll
My money, it changes how we used to value most
So over the short ascent that comes at any cost
Sing me a tune
Wasn't this bond built forever?
The anchor that strong
The anchor that strong
I'll go with the worst idea
If everyone takes the toll
(way too long)
I'll go with the worst idea
If everyone takes the toll

    General CommentAlright so I saw these guys in Providence RI a few weeks ago, and before they started this song Matt Pryor was basically trashing Boston, and then went on to say that this song was about moving to Boston. I dont know if it is or not, but to me this song is about doing something that you really really don't want to do, and it'll fuck things up in your life, but deep down you know it'll be better in the long run...Another thing, this song as well as the entire new album are a lot different than the GUK older stuff, but it's just the band adapting and changing, so everyone stop saying it sucks. It doesn't. On a Wire isn't Four Minute Mile, but it's got its advantages over the older stuff, as well as its disadvantages. Look at The Anniversary, Your Majesty didn't sound anything like Designing a Nervous Breakdown, but it was a good different sound. That's exactly what's happened with On a Wire so everyone lighten up. I'm off my soapbox.

    General CommentI agree with super emo boy. the get up kids rock, no matter how much they change, it's a different sound, and even if i didn't like it as soon as i bought it, i love it now. it sort of grows on you.

    General Commentrock. The new CD is great, so is Your Majesty. Different sounds don't mean anything about anything, it's just different. Appreciate it for what it is you skanks. Get Up Kids are awesome

    General Commenttrashing of boston? oooo not a good move on his part.... haha. i'm seeing them in a week in worcester. it should kickass, i'm hoping.
    i wouldn't think that he'd trash boston, i think i just thought (or wanted to think) they liked it here. *hm*

    General Commentthose lyrics aren't all correct. "so over the short ascent that comes at any cost" (not "so over the shorter scent") "on the only option we knew" (not "i'm the only").

    good song, good album.

    General Commentthe new CD grew on me real fast, and now I can't get enough. the only difference I really feel is that its not as depressing, not that the old songs were bad, its just that they had more emotion....these songs seem to be about a different kind of breakup, a differene kind of love. not as sad, but equally serious.
