They have no fear, Young told RS. They’re much better players than I am. Lukas is like a gunslinger. One of the album’s big themes is trying to find peace and happiness in a world of chaos. On title track Turn Off the News, Lukas details his attempt to focus on love instead of other things he can’t control: Maybe I’ll turn off the fuckin’ news, he sings. We wanted these songs to be fun and upbeat, Nelson said.
Hanging on a thriller Waiting on a killer Grinding on a coozie Waiting for the doozie It all makes sense when you lose your head Lay down your blues and then wait for the news again. Woohoo woohooo Woohoo woohoo. Chasing love and money Never leave your honey Changing all the time Leaving on a dime It all comes clear when you lose the years Don't make the same mistake I made when I was your age. I got wasted Yes I got wasted
