"Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)" as written by Michael A. Elizondo and Virginia Claire Wigmore....
Walk little walk
Small talk big thoughts
Gonna tell them all just what I want
That street two streets I see you and me
Hanging on the empty swings
'Count high low don't worry my eyes are closed
I'm a superman and it's my show
One shoe two gonna kick with my new shoes
I'm going to kick until I need new shoes

Yeah, yeah I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me, stop don't stop don't stop
Giving me things

I run they run everybody run run
And we're all just having fun
Sleigh ride boat ride piggy back ride
I'm going to show them all how I can ride
One two three close your eyes and count to four
I gonna hide behind my bedroom door
Crayon on the walls
Color on the wall
I'll draw until I've broken every law

I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me
Stop don't stop don't stop
Giving me things

Stop, don't stop, don't stop
Laughing about it
Stop don't stop don't stop

Don't stop, don't stop don't stop don't stop
Talking with me, stop don't stop don't stop
Giving me things, stop don't stop don't stop
Laughing about it
Stop don't stop don't stop I said
Stop don't stop don't stop I said
Stop don't stop don't stop
Stop don't stop don't stop
Stop don't stop don't stop me

    My OpinionListen to this song. It's so catchy isn't it? Especially the 'oooh woo ooooh' bits and of course the complementary guitar chords.
    I honestly think this song was intended for an ad when it was written.
    I read (on Wikpedia) that Mark worked as a jingle writer for an advertisement company. So he knows what sorts of tunes that people will really grow on, besides the fact that he has a natural talent.
    Just an interesting piece of FTP trivia I thought was necessary to share with the fans.

    As for the song meaning, Mark has stated himself during a live acoustic performance that the song describes what it'd be like if '4 year olds ruled the world'.

    The more I listen to them, the more I grow fond of Foster The People. Can't wait for the next record!

    General CommentYeah It's definitely about being little kids, although little kids seem kind of menacing after seeing the video for Helena Beat
