The Lyrics

As you probably don't know, they took The Calling off of the TRL voting list. Hence, "TRL" and "TRL #2"
"TRL #2"

Meet me at midnight at the broadcast tower high above the Hollywood sign.
You bring your guitar and I'll bring my camera, camera.
Everyone will come from miles around to witness this beautiful sight,
we'll set bonfires, pretend it's the tenth of July.

This is the starting of a brand new revolution, bite the hand that feeds.
Stand up and fight against the lies that they're telling...
stop their frequency.

You're always rigging, it's never ending.
It's about time that we turn off the TV.,
call TRL and tell them that it's over.
You're always playing all of the same tapes over and over again.
It's about time we all turned off the TV.

We'll watch concert tapes and sing along to "Wherever You Will Go."
Alex and Aaron will prevail tonight.
When it's all over, one question still remains.

Why does The Calling never make it to the TRL?

Look outside MTV, they're preaching lies in 4/4 time.
A generation without a voice and stripped of pride.
If you didn't understand the "tenth of July" part, it's because Camino Palmero was released July 10, 2001.
