fixing up a car to drive in it again
searching for the water hoping for the rain
up and up, up and up
down upon the canvas, working meal to meal
waiting for a chance to pick your orange field
up and up, up and up
see a pearl form, a diamond in the rough
see a bird soaring high above the flood
it’s in your blood, it’s in your blood
underneath the storm an umbrella is saying
sitting with the poison takes away the pain
up and up, up and up it’s saying

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

lying in the gutter, aiming for the moon
trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon
up and up, up and up
how come people suffer how come people part?
how come people struggle how come people break your heart?
break your heart
yes I want to grow yes I want to feel
yes I want to know show me how to heal it up
heal it up
see the forest there in every seed
angels in the marble waiting to be freed
just need love just need love
when the going is rough saying

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

and you can say what is, or fight for it
close your mind or take a risk
you can say it’s mine and clench your fist
or see each sunrise as a gift

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go

up and up and up

oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh oh oh oh

fixing up a car to drive in it again
when you’re in pain
when you think you’ve had enough
don’t ever give up
don’t ever give up

Isn't it "hoping for the rain" not "open for the rain"? I don't know...

Is it how can people part? Or how can people apart?

Fixing up a car and driving it again
Searching for the water, hoping for the rain
Up & Up
Up & Up

Down upon a canvas working on a mill
Waiting for a chance to pick (.....)
Up & Up
Up & Up

See your bird falling down upon on a road (?)
See your bird soaring high up above the flood (?)
It's in your blood
It's in your blood

Underneath the storm an umbrella is saying
Sitting with the poison takes away the pain (?)
Up & Up
Up & Up
We're saying...

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together and flow (?)

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together
Up & Up & Up

Driving very slowly (?)
Emptying the moon
Trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon
Up & Up
Up & Up

How can people suffer?
How can people part?
How can people struggle?
How can people break your heart?
Break your heart?

Yes I want to know
Show me how to feel
Yes I want to know
Show me how to heal it all
I'll heal it all

Trying to see the forest, there in every sea (?)
Angels in the marble waiting to be freed
Just need love
Just need love
When the _______ is rough, saying

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together and flow (?)

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together
Up & Up & Up

She can stay while (...)
(...)
Close your eyes
Clench your fists

(...)
(...)
(...)

Jonny's solo


We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together and flow (?)

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together
Up & Up & Up

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together and flow (?)

We're going to get it, get it together
I know we're going to get, get it together somehow
We're going get together
Up & Up & Up

Noel's solo


Ooooooooh
Oooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh

Fixing up a car and driving it again
When you're in pain
When you think you had enough

Don't ever give up
Don't ever give up

Just believe in love

We're going get it, get it together and flower

We're going to get it, get it together

She can say what is
happening


Close your mind
Let your best (?)

It's the same as mine
happiness

See the sun light out your best / See the sunlight out your den (?)

sounds random but really, it isn't. The entire song is about believing in yourself, not giving up and getting the best out of yourself. The vowel "to flower" fits in nicely with that theme. It basically means the same as to flourish, but it fits better within the song.
