It was broken words that she said to me
“My blood runs deep why won’t you let it bleed?”
The peoples crown lays at my feet
a dumb animal trying to crawl

But she comes now in the night
a blind baby walk in to the light
A life spent waiting for a volcano to blow
so the mountain can go and fall

And all the babies they’re just trying
dying
To find a place to call home
And they try so they’re lying
lying

I’m so sick of all these people
I wish that they would just go slow
Go sow
And watch it grow
I’m so scared of all my dreams
I wish I could sleep tonight

You know it’s the people
They hold you down
but you know they hold your crown

An anchor connects us with the ground
You wouldn’t believe how many times this voice has spoke and not made a sound
Oh wont you go tell a little fire for us

And all the babies they’re still trying
dying
To find a place to call home
But they try so they are just lying
lying

I’m so sick of all these people
I wish that they would just go slow
Go sow
And watch it grow
I’m so scared of all my dreams
I wish I could sleep tonight

But you know it’s the people
They hold you down
but you know they hold your crown
(You’re the light your Lucifer)

    General CommentA critique of the folly of people's hyper-ambition due to the crown (responsibility), when they could get as much pleasure just "watching it grow". Ties into the animalistic/nature theme within "We Bros" and other songs.
