Butterfingers – Get Up Outta The Dirt lyrics

There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt
There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt

If you sniffle 'cause your life's difficult, that's typical
What you get, what you give
Karma is reciprocal
And I'm critical of people on my nuts
Can't see why I'm crippled but they're stuck up in their ruts
Quick to make a fuss and to bust up the bubble
So this is my rebuttal too, we like 'em when they're trouble
I got a couple of bones to pick
It's your life, don't whine, take ownership
Get up, stand up, throw your hands up
While high check your mind back for propaganda
We're there to slander
Truth to candour and it's good for the goose as it is for the gander
Every gamut of the planet reaps what I sow
So forget about your hair and forget about your clothes
Same goes for your woes for the moment is priceless
Puberty blues becomes midlife crisis surprise!
You get wiser, older, fatter
Lose your mind and control of your bladder
Mad as a hatter, pissin' in your pants
But everybody's ugly if you give them a chance

There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt
There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt

This isn't an attack or a lack of compassion
But you gotta get yourself back in the action
Tap into your passion and follow it up
Either that or let the madness swallow you up
How full is your cup, half-full or half empty?
You're the envy of plenty, tread gently
Apathy is deadly and if you got seeds of doubt
That need to sprout, you need to weed them out
I read about people with real cares
And feel for those getting killed in Zaire (actual "feel for the hunger stricken killed in Zaire")
Children die there from extreme poverty
In perspective my problems don't bother me
Think positive, forget about the negative
There's never been a better time to get your shit together, it's
Bad etiquette to bitch and moan
With your nice clean clothes and your mobile phone
If you can't see your feet 'cause you over-eat
And that's your biggest problem then your life is sweet
Not sleepin' on the street then you probably got it good
Get up, put your head up, if you can then you should

There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt
There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt

Stand up straight
Stand up straight!
Don't take no shit
Don't take no shit!
Hands on your shoulders, shoulders on your hips
It's time for a change
Time for a change!
So make it swift
So make it swift!
You're only getting older with the lifeline that you live

There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt
Get up stand up, throw your hands up
While high check your mind back for propaganda
There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Out the dirt
This isn't an attack or a lack of compassion
Out the dirt
But you gotta get yourself back in the action

There's never been a better time than right now
Right now!
To get up outta the dirt
Get up outta the dirt!
Out the dirt
Get up outta the dirt!
There's never been a better time than right now
To get up outta the dirt
Get up outta the dirt!
Out the dirt
Get up outta the, get up outta the dirt!
