A song about making it through anything.


It was suggested to us that as a creative excercise we name a song after our favorite animal. We began this song calling it Turtle Song, but ended up writing it about everyone's plight through life, and a hopeful outlook. Written almost entirely in one afternoon the song is very simple, but has become one of our most popular.
close your eyes/ see the world you want to see/ be the things you want to be/ be the way you are
and never let go /never let go of the things you think you know/ that you love.
things that you'll always be a part of. And if they try to stifle you/ I know that you will break right through/ it's nothing new/ and if you need a hand to hold take mine.

Sifting through the things they do is rifting you and drifting blue/ courses newly formed around the remorse's shame for the game/ that together you and I/ reaching past the lie/ only used to play. But I refuse to allow the ruse to conquer you/ as long as you are anywhere near my sight/ together we will fight/ and our purist motives will provide the light/ and lead us on our chase. Toward salvation of a different kind a reiteration of a love that's blind and sure to find/ it's way into your heart/ if you let it start/ to heal what we have seen running faster than the wind can blow. Forgiving those who hurt you most can give you hope/ and let you know that just around the crooked sound/ salvation can be found/ and together we remember what we really want so...

NATURE ENTER ME!
-Otis and the Professors consists of two main writers and a bevy of contributors (the Professors) as we attempt to create music that is constantly changing in genre/feel/style, but hopefully always containing genuine artistic creation.the turtles are here-!

Absolutely marvelous tune ... Simplistically sophisticated ... As innocent as a bright eyed child and as sweet as a spring breeze rolling off a majestic mountain and into a precious valley ... but it's not just the breeze that is so inviting, it's the beautiful message within ... The world could use a lot more songs like this one ... The creativity shines through, especially at the point where the lyrics are crammed into the track in a style that could only sound right in a song like this ... a nice sweet little harmony adds to this whimsically proficent tune ... I think I should now like to go out and fly my kite ... please excuse me now ... Peace Sam

A great song pure and simple, no bullshit and frills, just exceptional songwriting.

Okay, so I went and listened really because they added "Cary's Here" to their station, but when I was listening, something happened. I liked it!!! A very intimate bedroom recording that reminds me a little of Syd Barrett and a little of Daniel Johnston and a little of Death Cab For Cutie. Endearing and affecting bedroom folk pop from Otis and his cohorts.

Lovely track. A very reconciling feeling throughout the song, has a sound of resignation, but...hopeful nonetheless. Simplicity is underated!
