We_are_the_people_alternate_coverEmpireoftheSunWikiUserLUMPENPROLETARIAT—I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me; but I know I try.  Are you gonna leave me now?  Can’t you be believing now?

Such was the prayer, from fall to fall, of the forlorn soldier of fortune, off fighting his greatest adversaries yet, his personal demons, under the military hierarchy of his compromised priorities.  Waiting for the miracle.

Messina

We Are the People” (2008) by Empire of the Sun

We can remember swimming in December
Heading for the city lights in 1975
We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now; we can try

We lived an adventure
Love in the Summer
Followed the sun ’til night
Reminiscing other times of life
For each every other
The feeling was stronger
The shock hit eleven; got lost in your eyes

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

Can you remember and humanise?
It was still where we’d energised
Lie in the sand and visualise
Like it’s ’75 again

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now; we can try

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
We know everything about us

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
We know everything about us

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?
