Get Right

I want for to lay down,
I'm waiting 'till sundown
I'm searching the haystacks, water is sunshine,
Wait for the moment
The moment between us, the fire is made now,
Harder to touch

I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right with you

Bakers dozen parades,
Stand and debate
Out single file, nine in a row, swear if you must
Keeping your boots on, float with the now,
Hot to the touch
Concrete underground, cast out everyday,
The dregs of society
Underbelly, beside me, rejoice and follow thee

I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
With it, with you


Eddie has his clunky moments but by and large he is a first rate lyricist. There are quite a few songs post No Code that have excellent music that suffer in my eyes because Ed didn't write the lyrics (No Way, Lowlight, Thin Air and NAIS really jump out at me. I like the lyrics to All those Yesterdays and Rival and God's Dice bores me no matter what). But in most of those cases the lyrics are passable enough that it doesn't ruin the song. That's not the case with Get Right. Musically I think the song works really well. It's not a masterpiece, but it is a nice fun, crunchy number. A nice strong, deep main riff, some nice work by Mike, a fairly infectious chorus, and even some handclapping. What's not to enjoy? Not a song to change the world, but still fun and it interjects some much needed light into an otherwise dark record. Musically I'd give the song a 3.5

But the lyrics completely tank the song for me. I've got nothing to say about them except they really suck. And that they drag the song down. I'd guess the song is about smoking pot, but only because of the picture in the liner notes and the shirt.

Three for get right

If there is really a "rank the entire catalog" thread, I might have an aneurysm.

There is, and the entire time people were doing it I was waiting for you to go on a shooting spree.
