The Get Up Kids are a Kansas City-based American emo pop band. Formed in 1995, the band was a major player in the mid-90's emo scene, otherwise known as the "second wave" of emo music. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe. They founded Heroes & Villains Records, an imprint of the successful indie rock label Vagrant Records. While the imprint was started to release albums by The Get Up Kids, it served as a launching pad for several side-projects such as The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect.

    What became of everyone I used to know?
    Where did our respectable convictions go?
    Your words don't match the story that your actions show, but what do I know?
    I'm sure you can't help but remembering
    I thought that you'd be one not to forget,

    It's words you forget, to anniversary songs.
    The bottles bite back, your tolerance wrong.
    Your good intentions count for little anymore.
    If you're sorry, why wage war?
    I'm not fully convinced that there's something wrong with this.

    You've got some nerve I never knew, what with the world we gave away in front of you.
    I see it all much clearer now. You're just a phase I've gotten over anyhow.
    It's over, I'm not giving in again.
    We're loyal like brothers, just us versus all the others.
    Were you the one for me?
