about

"We've Got It Wrong" came from a twenty second guitar idea I had recorded titled "Crazy Sevenths." I just liked the manic feel of the chords being played that way, and when it came time to write the song, the lyrics just kind of fell in step with the mood of the music, sneering with their jaw stuck out a touch.
Robert's bass line just lifted the song and nailed the perfect groove and energy. I asked our friend Anesti if he could throw an outrageous guitar lead on the end of the track, and he did so with gusto!!

lyrics

We've got It Wrong - Red Falcon / White Lightning

We've got it wrong, I'm startin' think my dear/
But we'll put it off and wait for another year/
Here we go(Whoo hoo)/ I told you so(Whoo hoo hoo)/

I always give the benefit of the doubt/(Like you know should)
But you set the table, and then pull the cloth right out/
I should've known(Whoo hoo)/ It's in your bones(Whoo hoo hoo)

And now we're going to a party-party/
(And don't you know we're gonna party hardy?)
Aint it so fun when we're together-gether?/
(Don't you know it's never better-better?)
I wish the night would last forever-ever/
(The morning's always gotta be so clever)
It shines a light/ On all the sights/ Oh man, we just don't wanna see!!/

Men wearin' suits, they're workin' up on the hill/
Do as they please 'cause we're gonna foot the bill/(Oh, you know we will)
Don't worry your pretty little head/(Oh, she says to me)
The crumbs'll trickle down once the fat cats get fed/
Oh, don't you know?(Whoo hoo)/ That's how it goes(Whoo hoo hoo)

And now we're going to a party-party/
(And don't you know we're gonna party hardy?)
Aint it so fun when we're together-gether?/
(Don't you know it's never better-better?)
I wish the night would last forever-ever/
(The morning's always gotta be so clever)
It shines a light/ On all the sights/ Oh man, we just don't wanna see!!/
