"Hand Me, Please, A City" as written by and Noah Georgeson....
When I speak of places
I speak of them as people
And question them at length
Why they are not my home
Why are they not home

When I speak of people
I speak of them as things
I put them in their place
I keep them in collection
Keep them collections

When I speak of things
I speak of them as places
Hand me, please, a city
Hand me, please, an ocean
Hand me, please, an ocean

    General CommentI think he's talking about consumerism/capitalism. The 2nd verse is about the devaluing of human beings and the categorization effect of society. The third verse is about greed and entitlement, "Hand me please a city." "Hand me please an ocean," an ocean being the biggest thing one could imagine to own. The first verse about the elevation of material things: land, houses- A house is not a home, but western culture demands that it is.
