MxPx - Shut It Down Lyrics




Now that I'm awake, I'm never sleeping again
Cause I don't want to miss the life I should be living
So break me off a piece of those candy coated good times
I need a high, I'm serious, It's do or die
Whoa, I'm serious it's do or die

Shut it down, before we're all out of time
We've got to shut it down
This is the end of the line, This is the end of the line

Throw away your cellphone, you can talk to yourself
You need a real friend, not some digital image
So what's it gonna be? A chat room or your family?
Don't let the TV screen turn into your reality
Whoa, turn into your reality

Shut it down, before we're all out of time
We've got to shut it down
This is the end of the line, This is the end of the line

I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die
But I'm having trouble living
I don't wanna die, no i don't wanna die
But I'm not taking what they're giving

Shut it down, before we're all out of time
We've got to shut it down
This is the end of the line

    Alex Leupin Secret Weapon

    Music Enthusiast

    Alex Leupin secret weapon boi

  13. Benjamin Janzen

    Yeah let us rip off other bands that have actually done this before you!

    Leanne Slaughter

    There's a difference between ripping off and sampling... Especially when 90% of the people listening to your song know the original lol.

    Leanne Slaughter

    Also, the "actually done this before you" part is completely irrelevant. Obviously you can't rip off something that was done after you or wasn't ever actually done in the first place, haha.

  14. Battle Born

    Just as relevant today as it was back then, maybe more so

  15. ThePlanBPill

    adam savage on drums is fucking savage

  16. ari neiman

    anyone else get the clash reference in the beginning. know your rights the clash first lyrics one of the most bad ass lyrics ever.

  17. Dark Templar

    I can't wait to see them play tomorrow at the The Observatory with Five Iron Frenzy & Slick Shoes!

  18. masquenada8

    I like it.

  19. spark300c

    "mxpx is NOT christian nor have they ever been, granted they suck now but at one point they were worth listening to, but during none of this time were or are they christian music" they do not preach in the songs but there faith is why there song are clean and not explicit. 

    spark300c

    @James Wut I say there never christain. I quoted some one used  "" quotation marks because I could not do direct reply

    hailey miller

    im sorry just voicing my opinion THEY ARE ALWAYS WORTH LISTENING TO AND STILL ARE SO SHUT UP sorry if i pissed anyone off

    Steven Smith

    @spark300c i think they're an overall good band, even their new stuff, but i can see why some people would categorize their older stuff to christian or something

    shaun simms

    spark300c "their" not there

    Leanne Slaughter

    Some stuff definitely was, even if they didn't aim to be a Christian band. "I look to you, Jesus yes I do". "a girl who writes me songs, and talks to Jesus all day long" etc.

  20. Lizz Bartley

    the beginning words is a repeat of the clash ;]

  21. Andreas Oygarden

    I dont like the video but i like the song

  22. ohalistair

    Wait, what?

    Did you just say a deathcore band sounds like 90's punk but with pussy vocals?
    I'm not sure what Suicide Silence you've been listening to but the one I know of is brutal as fuck in comparison.

    It's sort of like saying MxPx copied 50's swing music.
    They're nothing similar.

  23. Francis Ferrer

    Did you just say Suicide Silence sounds like a 90's punk band? Ahah, I like 90s punk, but Pierce The Veil's instrumentals are much more advanced compared to 90s punk, and Suicide Silence is a whole different genre. But I respect your opinion.

  24. Dan Flared

    I hate new hardcore music like suicide silence or pierce the veil it's the same sound of a 90's punk band but with pussy vocals of shit and IT'S A FUCKING COPY OF GOOD BANDS! MXPX FOREVER

  25. sani silly

    great this song

  26. giannis papoutsis

    this song kicking asses

  29. StalinBballin

    Originally done by The Clash. look it up. "Know Your Rights"

  30. TheVandralretard

    How dare they...

  31. Nyx Halford

    That's a Clash reference by the way.

  32. Nas Benson

    hahaha]

  33. Churras e bom chima

    Seven people have no culture.


  34. janoxpx7

    Mxpx !!!

  35. colintww

    this song rules!!!!!!

  36. noahfexpayton

    How are they different? More mature and more professional maybe, but for the most part they've stayed true to their style. Not even Bad Religion can say that. :)

  37. Pyro11695

    I always wondered what he was saying after "Public service annuoncement".

  38. Bostaffninja88

    It's ironic that I'm watching this on a computer.

  39. akuaba

    @hotchilisauce its pretty hard to thumbs up after turning your pc off ^^

  40. hotchilisauce

    Thumbs up if you shut yer computer down after this song.

  41. Frank

    @CaliforniaBurrito619 she sings beautiful

  42. skylar222008

    My Papaw hated this song lol

  43. ColinBrunnemer77

    I love the lyrics about how we are addicted to electronics... it's true!!!

  44. Celia Stephens

    .......Seattle in the background?(:

  45. Filip Kovačić

    Throw away your cellphone, you can talk to yourself
    You need a real friend, not some digital image
    So what's it gonna be? A chat room or your family?
    Don't let the TV screen turn into your reality..

  46. whofartedtwice

    @himynameisdaltonn i believe that this song is about how we as a society are too dependent on technology. that we need to 'unplug' and stop being glued to the TV and experience life before we die... that's at least what i got from the lines "throw away your Cell phone, you can talk to 'em yourself. you need a real friend, not some digital image." and "Don't let the TV screen turn into your reality"..
    plus them smashing the TVs helped bring me to that conclusion. :)

  47. Gabe Rodriguez

    as i watch this, there is a selena gomez song...with more views than this....*facepalm*

  48. staliusz

    I get it as moving our asses away from the computer (and other electronic devices) and walking into the real life.

  49. blacklight492

    It took me 3 replays to understand what this video is talking about. :)

  50. kishxcx

  75. LouisTheBassman

    @bigbadbronco86 of course the band is not christian its not a phisical being so it does not have a soul

  76. andicustherobot

    @bigbadbronco86

  77. Sasquatch Models

    @HickEntertainment well the indeviduals might be christian but the band itself is not

  78. Sasquatch Models

    @HickEntertainment lol i guess chick magnenet and barbie girl were christian songs as well eh?
