Hey there, can’t you find me?
You’re stranded, between stations…

I’m playing songs from all the bands that I love
Because no one ever calls in
And the record’s spinning as the clock is ticking
And I don’t know who is listening

We’re pausing, station id
I’ll backsell, if you pay me

I’m playing songs from all the bands that I love
Because no one ever calls in
And the record’s spinning as the clock is ticking
And I don’t know who is listening

And this will be my final broadcast
You could say we’re switching formats
I’m signing off for one last time, so thanks...

And this will be my final broadcast
You could say we’re switching formats
I’m signing off for one last time, so thanks...

And this will be my final broadcast
You could say we’re switching formats
I’m signing off for one last time, so thanks.

    General CommentI heard this song for the first time in a video called sentenced to life... Its short, and it meaning has me a little confused but i absolutley love this song. Its almost as if he is talking about someone/or himself being stuck inbetween life choices when everyone is going one way and moving onto new things but he still apreciates the way things used to be. "This will be my final broadcasting" Could mean that this is the last time he is going to try to show his passion for the way things used to be.....

    I dont know im confused anyone else please comment because i need help with this one...

    Maybe he is just an X radio Dj Signing off for the last time.

    General CommentIt's a radio station fading out, as the title would suggest. Perhaps Denver is trying to say that radio is on a decline? Or is he saying that this is the time to move on? For a brief time, I thought this was his way of saying this is Statistic's last album.

    General CommentI also heard this song while watching the Scotty Cranmer video and it was the most perfect song I have ever heard for a video like that. Im used to hardcore/ska stuff being played during something as amazing and extreme as that...but this song put an epic, emotional, revolutionary, and prodigal feel on the video.

    As for the meaning of this song...I believe it has to do with dating/making friends. It is a song about a lonely guy. I get the feeling that "I'm playing songs from all the bands that I love because no one else ever calls in" means that he is just being himself because he doesn't know how else to act...that he doesn't really have any friends or a girl that cares about him that would influence who he is so he is just being himself and doing the things he feels comfortable with. He is lonely and wants people to care about him and "call in" to show that they care and maybe even change up his life and make it interesting as "the clock is ticking" and his life just drags on. He is slowly getting tired of it as "the record's spinning" playing his same lonely life around and around and he's decided to stop trying. He is not gonna put himself out there at all anymore...its his "final broadcast".

    General CommentThis song, when looking over it again, it definitely about a radio station owner. It seems as if he used his life savings on the station, and it is failing miserably, and he wants to sell it back. I think the song is an allegory on the decline of real, homegrown, local radio. He just can't compete with everyone else and nobody wants to listen to his stuff, even if it's better. Damn kids.
