We Are The People – Empire of the Sun

Came across this awesome song in a wonderful hole-in-the-wall cafe in Boulder called Amante – it’s called ‘We Are The People’ by Empire of the Sun – also the name of a good WWII movie.

*I honestly never thought the music video would look like one giant acid trip. Though the Ancient Meso-American setting is highly appropriate.

We can remember swimming in December.
Heading for the city lights in 1975.
We share in each other.
Nearer than farther.
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 till 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 humanize.
It was still where we’d energized.

Lie in the sand and visualize 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.
Know everything about me.
Know everything about us.
(x2)

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.
