I absolutely love, love, love this song.
Jack’s Mannequin- “People, Running.”
We are just these people
Happy, tangled lives.
We are only chemical and skin,
Barely strapped in for this air conditioned drive.
We are tired of waiting and still we stand in line.
Yeah, this is all addition by subtraction
A simple chain reaction of the mind.
Yeah, we are just these people running around,
And I am in no hurry to figure it out.
We are just like oceans running aground in search of water,
In search of water.
We are just these people, such tragic little things.
You take a girlfriend to a drug deal,
Fall in love and now she wears a diamond ring.
We are tired of waiting, all bandages and strings
Hold you together and keep you up enough
You drift in no direction so it seems.
That we are just these people running around
And I am in no hurry to figure it out
We are just like oceans running aground in search of water
In search of water, in search of water.
People living on the edge would never come, in search of water
People standing and watching people run, in search of water
Just watching people fun
Yeah we are just these people running around
And there’s no need to worry we’ll figure it out
We are just those people running, people running around in search of water
Just watching people run.
