"We Are Not Good People" as written by Kele Okereke, Matt Tong, Russell Lissack and Gordon Moakes....
Think fast boy, think on your feet
If you don’t know it now you never will
You’re so young to be so heavy
Rip off the seal and let me school you

You see angels melt when they touch the ground
You see you’re not dumb, you’re just not aligned
Because you could be the one percent
If you wanna

We’re not good people
This is a warning

If God is God then why is he secret?
Today’s the day you’ve been set free
They might claim the best things are hidden
But I was here, you came to me

With these five lines you will be reborn
A superman or maybe a jock
You can crush the whole world in your hand
If you wanna

We’ve got the doorway
We’ve got the hallway
You can’t restore yourself

We’re not good people
This is a warning

    General CommentIt's like the devil is tempting a young man by flattering him and showing him how it doesn't pay to be honest. He also shows him that others are no good either, and maybe offers him drugs?
