"Join Together" as written by and Pete Townshend....
When you hear this sound a-comin'
Hear the drummer drumming
Won't you join together with the band
We don't move in any 'ticular direction
And we don't make no collections
Won't you join together with the band

Do you really think I care
What you eat or what you wear
Won't you join together with the band
There's a million ways to laugh
Ev'ry one's a path
Come on and join together with the band

Everybody join together
Won't you join together
Come on and join together with the band
We need to join together
Come on join together
Come on and join together with the band

You don't have to play
You can follow or lead the way
Oh won't you join together with the band
We don't know where we're going
But the season's right for knowing
Oh won't you join together with the band

It's the singer not the song
That makes the music move along
Oh won't you join together with the band
This is the biggest band you'll find
It's as deep as it is wide
Come on and join together with the band

Join together
(Ev'rybody come on) join together
Join together with the band
Join together
(Ev'rybody come on) join together
Join together with the band

    General CommentIt's a beautifull song about putting ALL dividing things aside. And joining together under a banner of music and song.

    General CommentDon't forget about the closeness the band felt with their fans. They held previews of albums, films etc. to get the honest views of people who loved their music. This song sums up the feelings of the band

    General Commentits about how music can bring together eveyone, no matter there differences
    and btw, its "i want you to join together with the band" not "won't you join together with the band"

    General Commentthis song is central to the Lifehouse story where music is the common language and people can put aside their differences and become one. nothing else. A great rock song by accident.
