"Some People" as written by and Dan Mangan....
Oh and on the screen my love and trust is making out with other guys
And I drank not enough to make me drunk and just enough to make me tired
And it's too easy to be awful to the ones you need the most
So in the end all I hope is that they know

Ask the bottom from the top and they will tell you that it's lonely too
So find a gun and spin the wheel and try to figure which god you'll choose
It's too easy to be angry at the ones that you don't know
So don't ask questions, don't ask directions, just go

So paint your pickets white and beat your wife just don't forget to shut the blinds
If you can keep your neighbours in the dark then surely God can close her eyes
'Cause it's too easy to be righteous when you eat what you've been fed
Some people don't question what they've read
Some people should
Some people
Some people

So what do you do, what do you do when you go home?
Now what do you do, what do you do when you go home?
Now what do you do, what do you do when you go home?
Now what do you do, what do you do when you go home?
Now what do you do, what do you do when you go home?
Now what do you do, what do you do when you go home?

    General CommentIt's actually "love interest" in the the first line, not love and trust. I love this song, his lyrics are always so good.

    My InterpretationIt's about the weird society America has that rubs off in Canada (it 'love interest' not love and trust like the person above said :) ). But mostly it's about religious fanatics, and how they don't question or think about what they've been told, they only blindly believe and use it as justification to do terrible things to other people.
    This song is just so darkly beautiful, love it.
