"Gang Of Rhythm" as written by Thomas Salter, Sarah Blackwood, Ryan Marshall and Gianni Luminati....
I got this old guitar
The strings are rusty
But it's all I need
Bring in the kick drum
It can back the beat
Let's gather round and sing a song
I got a shaker too
The kinds of sound
That wants to make you move
Bring in the uke
It will complete the groove
Let's gather round and sing a song

There's no worries on the earth tonight
We're all walkin' off the world tonight

Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
We're like a locomotive
Under the big hot sun
We're chained to the gang of rhythm
The song is never done
Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
Come on everyone

We got this melody
Bring in the harmony like CSNY
To write a tune you know will never die
Let's gather round and sing a song

There's no worries on the earth tonight
We're all walkin' off the world tonight

Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
We're like a locomotive
Under the big hot sun
We're chained to the gang of rhythm
The song is never done
Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
Come on everyone

And when the night is done
These chains will hold us strong
The chords will carry on
Long after we're gone oh oh

There's no worries on the earth tonight
We're all walkin' off the world tonight

Come on now everyone yeah
Come now everyone
We're like like a locomotive
Under the big hot sun

Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
We're like a locomotive
Under the big hot sun
We're chained to the gang of rhythm
The song is never done
Come on now everyone yeah
Come on now everyone
Come on everyone

We got this melody
Come on everyone
Bring in the harmony
Come on everyone

I got this old guitar
The strings are rusty
But it's all I need

    My InterpretationSo like in the band's music video, I think the song talks about living in a boring or bad place but you can overcome the moody vibes and instead, start listening or making music with people you know and love and being carefree with them. Just letting loose and having fun with music :)

    I love this song <3

    My InterpretationCome on now everyone yeah
    Come on now everyone
    We're like a locomotive
    Under the big hot sun
    We're chained to the gang of rhythm
    The song is never done
    Come on now everyone yeah
    Come on now everyone
    Come on everyone


    My thoughts about this song borrow directly from an author and professor from my own home state of Michigan, Thomas C. Foster. His ideas go like this:

    "History is story too. You don't encounter her directly, you've only heard of her through narrative of one sort or another. She's a literary as well as a historical character...And what all this is about, finally, is myth. Which brings us to the big secret.

    Here it is: There's only one story.. There, I said it. and I can't very well take it back. There is only one story. Ever. One. It's always been going on and it's everywhere around us and every story you've ever read or heard or watched is part of it...."


    and

    "...To me, literature is something much more alive. More like a barrel of eels. When a writer creates a new eel, it wriggles its way into the barrel, muscles a path into the great teeming mass from which it came in the first place. It's a new eel, but it shares its eelness with all those other eels that are in the barrel or have ever been in the barrel..."

    We're all part of the song (story). We're chained to it and we add to it. Like flowers a daisy chain.
