"Count Yourself In" as written by and Craig Spelliscy Andrew Usenik....
Beyond the common grind
From nine to five the dead end jobs we find
We try to hide
We struggle through the means to meet the end
Please tell me that this life isn't permanent

We don't care enough
(We don't care enough)
Look who's pulled it off
Look what get's me off
Gets me through the in sober days

You don't deserve to be unnoticed
You don't deserve to be treated like that
(We don't deserve to be unnoticed)

Days and weeks go by
And seasons change
The scenery gets old
It stays the same
There's nothing in this town
But you and I
So baby pack your bags we leave tonight

'Cause we don't care enough
(We don't care enough)
Look who's pulled it off
Look what get's me off
Gets me through the in sober days

You don't deserve to be unnoticed
You don't deserve to be treated like that
We don't deserve to be unnoticed
So where'd it go?

You don't deserve to be unnoticed
You don't deserve to be treated like that
We don't deserve to be unnoticed
So where'd it go?

So spend our nights awake
Rest every small town along the way
Here's to bad times
They were the best times
Give up the good times
And we'll survive

'Cause we don't care enough
(We don't care enough)
Look who's pulled it off
Look what get's me off
Gets me through the in sober days

You don't deserve to be unnoticed
You don't deserve to be treated like that
We don't deserve to be unnoticed
So where'd it go

    General CommentI love this song. The chorus is so powerful!
    I think it's about leaving the boring life and jobs behind and doing someting you really want to do.
    Oh, and instead of "Look who's pulled it off" should be "So don't hold it off".

    General CommentThis song was written for and is a tribute to the band Drakes(Advantage). If you listen to the lyrics "Heres to bad times, they were the best times, give up the good times" in Count Yourself In and then listen to the lyrics in the breakdown of Jado by Drakes(Advantage) (it occurs around 3:40 listen to it here myspace.com/…) you will notice that they are almost the exact same. I asked TSE about the similarities in the lyrics and here was the response I got back.

    "Yup, the song is actually about the dudes from Drakes. They are our best friends so we wrote the song as a tribute to them, though most people think its a love song about a girl. FOOLED THEM, haha"

    Cheers.
    Andrew

    So there you have it from the singer himself.

    General CommentI love this song.
    It's rad--like a raddish.
    =)
    And-- for anyone who says it's "emo" music.
    I'm not emo and i LOVE it. so... ha. I think music is for people to enjoy, rather then to criticize. (or whatever it is you people do.)

    General Commentfor the comment above me, who ever said this song was "emo" is stupid, its more pop/rock then anything... and as tdh20 it has nothing to do with a girl, which apperntly makes a song "emo" now a days. besdies that this song is really good.. and i was going to say that its about a band that there friends with, but tdh20 said it first and happends to know the exact band lol

    General CommentI love this song... not so much the video.

    Good job hobbes67 figuring out the lyrics, I always find that the lead singer doesn't enunciate well enough.

    This is not emo. Emo means emotional. This song isn't emotional. Geez can't anybody get that right?
