Adding To The Noise

Album: The Beautiful Letdown (2003)

Songfacts®:

  • One of the themes of this song is how advanced technology is making people lazier. The lyrics, "If we're adding to the noise, turn off this song" reflect their desire to be more than the everyday clutter we are inundated with. >>

  • Jerry from Anaheim, CaHaha that helps. I never knew what it really meant even though i tried guessing.

    I thought it was more like Christianity is bein blocked out as time passing and they were being all "If were bugging you (adding to the noise), don't erase our religion, just ignore us (Turn off this song)" but whatever.
    It's an awesome song still. ^^
