Get My Mind Right
by Calm

Album: Anti-Smiles (2006)


  • "Get My Mind Right" is a very misunderstood song. The band's rapper Time explained the meaning at a show in New Mexico. He said that the references to pills had nothing to do with drugs, and that "pills" are a reference to their music. The album title Anti-Smiles is a metaphor - Anti-Smiles is depression and Calm are the cure. Essentially Calm is a pill and Anti-Smiles is the problem. >>
