The Get Up Kids

The Get Up Kids are an American alternative rock band from Kansas City, Missouri. Formed in 1995, the band was a major player in the mid-90's emo scene, otherwise known as the "second wave" of emo music. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe. They founded Heroes & Villains Records, an imprint of the successful indie rock label Vagrant Records. While the imprint was started to release albums by The Get Up Kids, it served as a launching pad for several side-projects such as The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect. more »

I go on forever 
Older burns are overturned 
My life for worse or better 
I'm just craving for a cure 

Like a man possessed 
A requiem 
We're singing 

Hide the misdemeanors 
Never lead an open life 
My hands were never cleaner 
Not a trace for you to find 

Like a man possessed 
A requiem 
We're singing 

Say it, does it show? 
Is this test in any other time? 
I know, but I don't 
I'm blind in every other eye 
Cold hands, colder smoke 
We sleep anywhere we lie 
You're lying if you don't 
I'll try, I'll try
