Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I don't care what you do

I'm getting out, no nothing ever shames me

Don't want a thing from you

I'm going out, I don't care if you're angry

[Chorus 1]

I'm getting out, no nothing ever shames me

I'm going out, I don't care if you're angry

[Verse 2]

I should have thought things through

I'm holding out, but not getting an answer

I want to do right by you

I'm finding out, cheating gets it faster

[Chorus 2]

I'm holding out, not getting an answer

I'm finding out that cheating gets it faster

I'm holding out, not getting an answer

I'm finding out, cheating gets it faster

[Verse 1]

I don't care what you do

I'm getting out, no nothing ever shames me

Don't want a thing from you

I'm going out, I don't care if you're angry

[Verse 2]

I should have thought things through

Yeah I'm holding out, but not getting an answer

I want to do right by you

I'm finding out that cheating gets it faster

[Chorus 2]

I'm getting out, no nothing ever shames me

I'm going out, I don't care if you're angry

I'm holding out, but not getting an answer

I'm finding out, cheating gets it faster

Recording Details

Reception

"Get It Faster." Opening with a minute's worth of ominous shudders and thuds, the cut eventually settles into a ticking time-bomb groove, which quickly explodes into a chorus of such Promethean depth and grandeur that it would send even the most dedicated power chord progeny running for cover. Arguably, it's the highlight of the JEW canon--as well as the Bleed track whose construction seems to most bear the fingerprints of guitarist Tom Linton. As "Get It Faster" amply proves, Linton remains the band's ace card. His ability to suffuse the material with an army of plangent guitars, swooning lead breaks, supple sonic touches and a general effort serving as point man in Adkins' aural assaults is invaluable[2]

Recently Jim Adkins has confirmed that both Satanica and the drum fills in the intro of Get It Faster were programmed in the PlayStation game MTV Music Generator.

"this intro was made on the sony playstation MTV sound generator game. just like the entire rare b-side "Satanica" (that we actually had bob ludwig master and a major label release) #jimmyeatworld jim" [3]

It is slightly unclear from the tweet if Jim is referring to Bob Ludwig mastering both Get It Faster (for Bleed American) and mastering Satanica or just the former.
