"Stop the Show" as written by and Doug Martsch....
You don't tell me anything
Its not a dream
Its not a big lie

You're not going anywhere
You don't care
You think that's fine

You don't owe me anything
The offering
Is already mine

Your best friend is everywhere
They don't care
They think you're slime

You don't even know
What it means to
Take your own advice and then
Expect me to look surprised

After a while you know the style and that's enough to kno you suck
And when you know to stop the show because you know they know
I know its sad but don't feel bad they knew they had it coming
After a while it hurts to smile and if you laugh its just a typical miracle

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS AAAAAAMMMMMMAAAAZING. The guitar part right before he starts singing is intense and angry and I love it so much. It just reminds me of how fed up you can get with people in general, especially when they are fake bitches. "After a while you know their style, and that's enough to know they suck!" You tell 'em how it is Doug.

    General Commenti love this song, but does anyone else pick up a beatles' "good morning, good morning" nod??? "after awhile you start to smile" = "after awhile you know their style"

    the rythym in general sorta sounds like it. anyway. great song.

    General Commenti see some tongue-in-cheek reference to the bitter hearted "indie rock" snobs that thrive on contempt for one another.

    General CommentIf you listen very closely to the last part of this song you hear Doug saying "you should have tried" over and over again. It's very very quiet but it's definitely there.

    General CommentDoug wrote this song about Issac Broc. It's about how Isaac is a baby when it comes to tough crowds and stops shows when he gets pissed off.
