"People Have A Way" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
People have this way of knowing everything
They take one short look and then move on
If you ever wanted anything
Then you have to disagree

Make some time with the fire's coals
Who really knows if it isn't coal?

I am hardly shocked to learn it's everywhere
I read two short words and then passed out
If you ever needed anything
It's got to be more we can see

Like a silver glow after sleepless nights
In the melting dark with the losing light
Making shapes with the praying eyes
Don't ever be that terrified

Remember when we closed our eyes behind hotels
You spoke three short words and then went down
And if you ever needed anyone
All that's left is to agree

'Til the meadow shake and the tall grass hums
'Til the first light breaks and morning comes
There's no way around it's all getting down
We can take everything we've found

There's no way we can lose
When we're proving simple proofs
It's the best thing we can do
While the light is coming through

    General Comment*These are the correct lyrics, right from mattpondPA.com:*

    People have this way of knowing everything
    They take one short look and then move on
    If you've ever wanted anything
    Then you have to disagree
    Make some time with the fire's coals
    Who really knows if it isn't cold.

    I am hardly shocked to learn it's everywhere
    I read two short words and then passed out
    If you ever needed anything
    There's got to be more we can see
    Like the silver glow after sleepless nights
    In the melting dark with the losing light
    Making shapes with the preying eyes
    Don't ever be that terrified

    Remember when we closed our eyes behind hotels
    Spoke three short words and then went down
    If you ever needed anyone
    All that's left is to agree
    Till the meadows shake and the tall grass hums
    Till first light breaks and the morning comes
    There's no way around, it's all getting down
    We can take everything we've found

    There's no way we can lose
    When we're proving simple proofs
    It's the best that we can do
    The light is coming through
