The Get'em

BandAlternativeRock

The Get'em plays clever rock music. Imagine putting U2, The Killers, Radiohead and The Strokes in the house from Saw II. You tell them to get out alive they have to write an album as a team. That's what we sound like. Maybe a little happier.

Biography

The Get'em was founded by Daryl Barnhart, Chris Carr and Brad Ward in April 06'. Although originally intended on being a cover band, The Get'em found that people were more interested in hearing their original songs than the covers.

In Sept 06' Chris left the band to go to school. Daryl and Brad spent the next several months playing with other local musicians but were unable to find the right bassist and drummer.

As fate would have it, Chris grew tired of school and returned to Niagara with his bass in one had and eletro-digits in the other. Enlisting the help of Carr's close friend, jazz drummer Steve Roberts. The Get'em spent the summer recording their six song e.p called Make Room that is set for a fall release.

Lyrics

New Years Resolution

Written By: The Get'em

Sheeple take your monies,
put it in a sac
toss it down a river,
ain't ever coming back
ain't ever coming back son
ain't ever coming back
blind, deaf, dumb forever

Go sing a hallelujah,
go sing it with a smile,
we need a real solution
we have for quite awhile
start counting down the minutes,
cause when we crack we cry out!
blind dear dumb forever
blind deaf dumb forever

we need a resolution
forget the revolution
we need a resolution
forget the rebel yell
old hounds and b-list actors
break out in a laughter
blind deaf dumb forever

here comes the pressure get down
welcome to a jail term
where everybody gets rounds
put up against the wall
a slow asphyxiation
tender, bruised and aching
blind deaf dumb forever

we need a resolution
forget the revolution
we need a resolution
forget the rebel yell
old hounds and b-list actors
break out in a laughter
blind deaf dumb forever

so many times it gets cold,
the world is like a milkshake
where everybody gets old
and no ones slimming down
a new years resolution
a form of self abuse hun
blind deaf dumb forever

we need a resolution
forget the revolution
we need a resolution
forget the rebel yell
old hounds and b-list actors
break out in a laughter
blind deaf dumb forever

The Pretender

Written By: The Get'em

I want you to know,
I’m not going to bend
dirty magazines,
I don’t have any friends

hell now don’t say I’m,
hell now don’t say I’m
hell now don’t say I’m
I’m the pretender

got my clothes all clean
and dragged them through the mud
friends don’t mean a thing
I’d rather not have them

hell now don’t say I’m,
hell now don’t say I’m
hell now don’t say I’m
I’m the pretender

my don’t cares
don’t remind you
to remind to
tie me to a windshield (up down around around around)
can’t eat, can’t sleep
go without it
yeah I doubt it
cause I’m a fool

Whiskey Man

Written By: The Get'em

Da fist will fly,
winner raises a hand,
other won’t away a man

bar keep close tight,
mighty chance of a chant
get your swing down
get it patented

beers for the morning
with a native cigarette in my hand
girl you will know I’m a whisky man
Saturday night, saddle up lets party,
don’t make plans
just so you know I’m a whisky man

if it don’t feel right
and if don’t feel nice
and theres no hope it might
slipping, squirming and I start shaking

gotta move on
getting steady and I’m not ready for it
got my gun in behind my bus pass

beers for the morning
with a native cigarette in my hand
girl you will know I’m a whisky man
Saturday night, saddle up lets party,
don’t make plans
just so you know I’m a whisky man

knock it off and call it k-o
I am not a wino talker
I am not a wino talker, got a friend in Johnny Walker

beers for the morning
with a native cigarette in my hand
girl you will know I’m a whisky man
Saturday night, saddle up lets party,
don’t make plans
just so you know I’m a whisky man
