10. Adding To The Noise

The Beautiful Letdown
by Switchfoot



 

What's it gonna take
To slow us down
To let the silence spin us around?
What's it gonna take
To drop this town?,
We've been spinning at the speed of sound.

Stepping out of those convenience stores
What could we want but more more more?
From the third world
To the corporate core
We are the symphony of modern humanity.

CHORUS
If we're adding to the noise
Turn off this song.
If we're adding to the noise
Turn off your stereo, radio, video...

I don't know
What they're gonna think of next
Genetic engineers of the most high tech.
A couple new ways
To fall into debt.
I'm a nervous wreck but I'll bet
That that T.V. set
Tells us what we've wanted to hear
But none of these sound bites
Are coming in clear
From the third world to the corporate ear
We are the symphony of modern humanity.

CHORUS

Behind the Song:
"Being on tour is totally different speed. Hurry up and wait... lots of time in planes, trains, and automobiles. You find yourself leaving cities that you never really saw. The funniest part is that we rarely get to play as a band on the road. You spend all your time getting there, setting up, and tearing down. So the show and the sound check, (if you get one) become your only chances to practice and work on new ideas as a band. The rest of the time you find yourself waiting around looking at cold pizza and an accoustic guitar that’s got 4 strings, which is a great time to write a song. I think I wrote this one somewhere near Dallas. Four strings is enough for rock and roll..." - Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
