I Get It

Album: Vena Sera (2007)
  • So you say you're ignored
    As it is
    Well, give us your sad, sad trip

    You're right, I get it
    It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
    So right, so wrong
    Let's all live in your imaginary life

    Assumed it's whether
    We're right, I'm wrong
    We're doomed, and there's plenty for all

    How dare you catch me counting
    How dare you call at all
    How dare you call it suffering
    How dare you call at all

    You're right, I get it
    It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
    So right, so wrong
    Let's all live in your imaginary life

    Press on these tannins
    They're doubled in time
    The touch of life, once failed to mention so far

    Of course the la is fountains
    Of face to face remorse
    A fast and restless blackmail
    Like pent-up fetish force

    You're right, I get it
    It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
    So right, so wrong
    Let's all live in your imaginary life

    Do you want enough?
    Do you want it all?
    Should you need it at all?
    Takes a minute to see
    Do you want enough?
    Do you want it all?
    Should you need it at all?
    Do you want it or not?

    You're right, I get it
    It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
    So right, so wrong
    Let's all live in your imaginary life

  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaI love this song so much it's sad it's such an under rated and under played song on the radio Chevelle kicks ass!!
  • Hannah from Annapolis,I love this song. Chevelle is so awesome. I think this song is about how a person can be so into themselves to think that the world should be revolved around them OR the world's out to get them. Like they just complain and complain about how everyone hates them and they just drown in their self pity and expect every one else to drown with them. So then Peter Loeffler is singing this whole song in sarcastic pity for this very "unfortunate" person saying "you're right i get it it all makes sense you're the perfect person so right so wrong" it's kind of like he's saying i'm so sorry i never realized that you're perfect and i should bow down to you even though clearly you're wrong and you suck.
  • Joey from Westville, NyBad ass song. I think it's just about anytime in life were someone tries to explain something to you, when you already have concrete knowledge of the situation.. aware that arguing will go no where.."your right, I get it.."
  • Jamee from Oklahoma City, OkThanks, Chevelle for such an awesome song.
