Subject: NISSAN XTERRA SONG

Artist: Span

Song: "Stay As You Are"

This song is heard in one of the current Nissan Xterra ads. I liked the lyrics and did a search for them. The band is called Span, who hail from Norway. They sound a lot like Collective Soul, but the song wasn't listed on the track listing of Collective Soul's release, "Youth".

Stay As You Are --Span
from the CD Mass Distraction


I’ve always been skeptical of people praising their conformity
guys taking great pride in being like the others
like their mothers-in-law wanted

Does my tie fit alright?
Is my fly up and tight?

Stay as you are and you won’t make a difference
stay as you are and you will never mean a thing
stay as you are and you won't make a difference
I hope your full control in your little hole is worth it

I’ve never thought that to reach the masses
you stick your tongue up in the right asses
but that’s the system that works in here
you make yourself appear electable

I’ll just play whatever your game

you go first I’ll do the same

Stay as you are and you won’t make a difference
stay as you are and you will never mean a thing
stay as you are and you won't make a difference
I hope your full control in your little hole is worth it
Is it worth it?

wooooh x4

You brag about being an autonomous man in an autonomous land
of independence and free thinking,
but it’s been five years pm
and you’re still nothing but a lackey,
a puppet on a string

I’ll look great when the war is over
I’ll be waving from my rover

Stay as you are and you won’t make a difference
stay as you are and you will never mean a thing
stay as you are and you won't make a difference
I hope your full control in your little hole is worth it

I hope your full control in your little hole is worth it x3

Here's their website:

The cd is a Europe-only release (from what I've seen), and it's going for $30 on Amazon right now.

Anyone have it?  Please mail me - cowquarium at yahoo

downloading it on Limewire as we speak... I recently heard a pretty sweet song in a Nissan commercial and I'm hoping this one's it.

yes, "one " of the songs is by that group SPAN, called "stay as you are". I have the album, got it offline for like 12 bucks, its good stuff. But, unfortunately there is also another song, that sounds very soundgarden-esque, it is a 2005 Xterra commercial and it is not by SPAN. I am not sure what song the one I am talking about is, but it is not SPAN and it is not "stay as you are" eventhough that song is in a Xterra commercial. Someone with a better ear than mine let me know if you find out what that song is called. Thanks.

awesome, i was looking for that song. Like I said before, SPAN's song "stay as you are" IS in one of the Xterra commercials but not the one where the guys are kayaking and some girl is running up the side up of a mountain (pretty cool looking actually). So Once again, to be perfectly clear, I have the SPAN cd its good i recommend it, but i guess that third guy to responded to me is right as far as I know, i gotta get that song. Ok people,Thanks, hope i helped as much as you helped me. If anyone has any other requests, i have basically found every song from a commercial I liked (trust me, im not kidding im a freak with this sheesh), but that one song stumped me. ok, peace.

you can get the span song on itunes, just change your country to norway and the album is listed there.

SPAN is a fantastic band from Norway, that has released two great albums to date. The first album, "Mass Distraction", was released in February 2004 in Europe only, whilst the second, "Vs. Time" was released in April 2005 in Norway.

"Stay As You Are" is on "Mass Distraction", which was initially available as a superb 2CD set, with a bonus disc of demos etc. It can normally be found very cheaply on Ebay.

"Vs.Time" can be ordered from www.cdon.com in Europe, or www.zailor.no internationally.

Well worth investigating. Live, SPAN is quite awesome but they currently have no record deal in the USA or UK. Scandalous!

I guess I might as well ask about the other NIssan song. The lyrics go something like "you make me moan", "you make me weep" the gutair riff sounds a lot like Misty Mountain Hop by Led Zeppelin. Does anyone know what the name of this song is?
