Lyrics & Interpretations: How We Think About Us

This is a track I wrote together with Luke Harney aka Typesun some time ago. Now it’s resurfacing in the advent of the British election in a new acoustic version, performed by Typesun and Romaine Smith on goosebump inducing vocals! Check it out, and see follow the lyrics below if you want. (No interpretation offered this time, except the message that Luke wants Brits to ponder: Turn up.)

 

Warped sensations of luck

a system without the blessing of

the gravitation of love

Only stars up above

Taught our values’ not much

just diamonds in the rough

plastic faces convert

how we think about us

 

Eden’s far out of touch

so we’re all saving up

for inner peace through more stuff

and getting enough

Deals and damages done

a mirage thrown for the thirsty ones

Seems like we’re giving up

how we think about us

 

Hidden ties / it’s out there quite visible

human lives / just part of the strategy

tow the line / reproduce and consume excessively

doesn’t seem a healthy philosophy 

signed up but we didn’t all agree

who are you to define humanity

when I know that we could be truly free

 

Taught our values’ not much

just diamonds in the rough

plastic faces convert

how we think about us

 

I’d be lost for your touch

but transform into what?

No thanks, it’s quite enough

How we think about us
