Request the honor of your presence
the tear gas has blown away
put down your crumpets and your coffee now
so unfashionably late.

Little brother, little sister
underwater we go
out of our ordinary selves
stepping out
to where the people sing.

Woohooooooooooo
-and the people sing
-and the times are good

You say i'm acting like a beggar
I call it killing the fool
you carry more baggage
than a momma's boy
on your first day of school

Let go of the light of the t.v.
drop the hands
the chains that bind me
turn it all around
stop, lift you up 'n die to self
in a time when the left and the right's the same
when it's all blurred vision in a crazy haze
send out the invitations!

You say i'm acting like a beggar
I call it killing the fool
to save your life you gotta lose it
so the people sing.

    General CommentIt seems like they're talking about heaven, a place where everyone is happy (the times are good), there's no sorrow... (the tear gas has blown away)

    General Commentthis song reminds me of a very good friend of mine, a girl named Lyndsey. Anyways i agree with John, whenever i hear it, i think of Heaven, and getting there. I like the line "to save your life you have to lose it"
