A home-recorded demo of the song "Get Down," which was later included on the album Arms Down.


Gather 'round
Listen close
Here's an observation
Set up like a sermon but said with uncertainty

But that's a trap!
That's a trope!
That's a complication
Call it "access has its virtues
But so does obscurity"

Out of breath
And on call
Out of allies and alcohol
It's all the same when you're starving for sympathy

But that's a jab!
That's a joke
That's a job description
Call it "passion is a virtue
But so is proficiency"

But how to express under duress?
I can't speak from where I'm supposed to be
And recant rumors and rants starting "supposedly...."

"Not your best"
I know
I just wanted to let it go
And let on that this has occurred to me

But I could snap!
I can't cope
I could call it off and call it "patience is a virtue
But it's not maturity

So get down, get down!
(I'm already down!)
Get down, get down!
(I don't wanna get down!)
Get down, get down!

I've confessed
I propose we're ready to go
