"Turn Off This Song And Go Outside" as written by and John Sanders/ruland Van Deusen....
And welcome to my heart and soul
Miserable excuse
But tell the world of all the pain I've caused
I hope you don't forget these songs

And though I'm young life's been short
I'm only twenty-one
I feel as though we can relate on some
Of these words I've written down

So turn off, turn off this song
Find someone to love
Turn off this song
You can listen to it later
And go outside

And guys in bands
With vintage shirts and hundred dollar pants
Often think we do what no one can
We see ourselves above the rest

When faced with truth
I realize there is nothing I can do
Amount of talent or gift to bring
That is greater than the orphan song she sings yeah

Turn off, turn off this song
Find someone to love
Turn off this song
You can listen to it later
And go outside

Yeah you turn off, turn off this song
Find someone to love
Turn off this song
You can listen to it later
And go outside
And go outside
And go outside
And go outside

    General CommentGreat song from a Pacific Northwest band from Anacortes, WA. Remember that. They aren't from Seattle! I think this song is basically saying: Don't spend all your time doing....uh...exactly what I am doing here...interpreting music. Also, I think they are trying to get people to realize that it can be destructive trying to live in music vicariously, rather than actually going out and experiencing life. And that while they want you to enjoy and relate to their music, they also don't want to be worshiped or viewed as musical saviors. Plus, considering that the PNW is infamous for gloomy weather and suicide, this song seems to say: Get out of your mom's basement, find someone to love and the sun will come out if not in reality, then at least in your own heart.
