"Joy.Discovery.Invention" as written by and Simon Neil....
Look at slow motion, asleep at the door
Next to destruction, reach for the sores

Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky
Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky

Sink with your wasted dreams when you can
Find time to console them, become what I am
If you submit to all the hopes you’ve made
Down, through your heart

Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky
Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky

Passed away, I hope you don’t mind, what’s a little sin to see us through

If you want it, get it, go and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky
If you want it, get it, go and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky

Passed away, I hope you don’t mind, what’s a little sin to see us through
If you wanna get it, come and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky

    General CommentI don't think those lyrics are right...between
    "become what I am" and "get up, get up" it should say:
    "If you
    submit to
    all the hopes you made
    down, through
    your heart"

    or something like that...

    And I think the "by the way" part should be:
    Past the way
    I hope you don't mind
    Watch the letter sink/say
    to see this through

    although that doesn't make much sense...it's what I think they say....

    General CommentI think this song is brilliant. I like all of Buffy Clyro's songs.. but this is one of the best.

    General Commentwhen I first heard it, I couldnt stand the way they sang 'Get Up, Get Up, Get Over', but the emotion in his voice as he sings 'take me to your blackened sky' more than makes up for it.

    General Commentfools, those aren't the lyrics, its

    Look at slow motion, asleep at the door
    Next to destruction, reach for the sores

    Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky
    Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky

    Sink with your wasted dreams when you can
    Find time to console them, become what I am
    If you submit to all the hopes you’ve made
    Down, through your heart

    Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky
    Get up, get up, get over, take me to your blackened sky

    Passed away, I hope you don’t mind, what’s a little sin to see us through

    If you want it, get it, go and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky
    If you want it, get it, go and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky

    Passed away, I hope you don’t mind, what’s a little sin to see us through
    If you wanna get it, come and break my heart, take me to your blackened sky

    General Commentdon't know what significance this is of but the title is from a line in the book "choke" by chuck palahniuk. fantastic book, fantastic song.
    i agree with darkmongoose about how he sings the lines though.
