Get Down Rise Up

Get down rise up, give up pay up
Shoot it, kill it love it live it

Paranoid, conniption fits
Don’t worry baby I got this
Be the fire don’t be the ash
Don’t be the credit, be the cash

It all seems a little abstract
You got to get in where you fit in

1st you’ve got the conscience then you got the back up
Then you bring the monkey then you bring the man
Then you bring the nonsense then you drop the knowledge
1st you bring the concepts it all seems a little abstract

Get down rise up, give up pay up
Be the reason, be the one, be the gangster

It all seems a little abstract
You got to get in where you fit in

1st you’ve got the conscience then you got the back up
Then you bring the monkey then you bring the man
Then you bring the nonsense then you drop the knowledge
1st you bring the concepts it all seems a little abstract

Conscience, backup, monkey, man
Nonsensne, knowledge, it all seems abstracts

There’s your alarm clock buzzing in your head
Listen to the man monkey, listen to the man

Get down rise up, give up pay up 4x’s

1st you get the progress, then you get the back up
Then you get the martians, bring along the stickup
Then you bring the stalemate, bring along a lame duck,
don’t worry about the earthquake, worry about the cleanup,
might as well throw in acts of god, lightning flood,
Hurricane, black sludge, acid rain, free drugs,
It’s a living can’t complain, non-disclosure, can’t disclaim,
Exposure, It’s over, the torture, the lawyer, the warning,
Climate change, the poverty, the oil spill, the health care bill, the bailout, the war on terror,
The deficit, the drug war, the Christian right, the middle East, love and peace,
Neither close to last nor least, the bad cocaine, immigration, backward forward,
the hurricane
I just hope that there’s still room for you and me in some kind of compound
Deep inside the green zone, built up to earthquake code, stocked up with rations
In a bomb shelter built by the army corps of engineers and fortified with levees

about

Paul Chesne Venezia

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
