Monday Morning Wake Up Call: Dinosaur Jr – Get Me

One of those songs that just transports you back to high school, what you initially remember as the better days, simpler times when nothing really mattered and the world was your crustacean. Then you start to recall the nights of torment, days of anger, inability to control yourself, heartbreak, bone breaks and disappointment that make you realize it was shit back then too but you were less likely to be sued or arrested. Thankfully there was/is Dinosaur Jr as well.

I don’t see you, I won’t call you
I don’t know enough to stall you
Is it me, or is it all you?
Guess, it’s on and on
On a day, maybe I’d show you
But it’s the least of all I go through
But the thing is I don’t know you
And it’s on and on

Trembling words Don’t make my eyes close
And if anyone then you’d know
I can’t find out ’cause it won’t show
And it’s on and on
Every dream is shot by daylight
And I pray that maybe you’re right
But if you don’t, maybe I might
‘Cause it’s on and on

When it takes too long I lose it
I’ll just hang while you abuse it
If you knew then why’d you choose it
‘Cause it’s on and on
You’re not gonna get me through this are you
You’re not gonna get me through this are you

Anytime I’m there to show you
But if it takes too long I know you
Out the door just leavin’ me screwed
And it’s on and on
Everytime I try to fight it
It’s so hard to seem excited
And if you don’t turn then I’ll bite it
And it’s on and on
You’re not gonna get me through this are you
You’re not gonna get me through this are you

I don’t see you, I won’t call you
I don’t know enough to stall you
Is it me, or is it all you?
Yes, it’s on and on
Every dream is shot by daylight
And I pray maybe that you’re right
But if you don’t maybe I might
Cause it’s on and on
