JACK'S MANNEQUIN lyrics - People And Things

People, Running

Original and similar lyrics
We are just these people happy, tangled lives. We are only chemical and skin, Barely strapped in for this air conditioned drive. We are tired of waiting and still we stand in line. Yea, this is all addition by subtraction A simple chain reaction of the mind. Yea, we are just these people running around And I am in no hurry to figure it out We are just like oceans running aground in search of water In search of water We are just these people, such tragic little things. You take a girlfriend to a drug deal, Fall in love and now she wears a diamond ring. We are tired of waiting, all bandages and strings. Hold you together and keep you up enough You drift in no direction so it seems That we are just these people running around And I am in no hurry to figure it out We are just like oceans running aground in search of water In search of water, in search of water People living on the edge would never come, in search of water People standing and watching people run, in search of water Just watching people run Yeah we are just these people running around And there's no need to worry we'll figure it out We are just those people running, people running around in search of water Just watching people run

Battering Ram

RANCID "Rancid 2000"
Some people are rotten deep down to the core Some people got the kick of a bull and the lies of a chronic thief in store Some people try to take you out if they can But I'll go right through them I'm a battering ram Been running my whole life and I'm still running Integrity is something you never had Reverence to your lies as a person you're bad Falsified living on the truth you're gonna choke I'll just sit back and watch you cut your own troat Back biting hypocrite you're a liar Telling lies is what fuels your fire Once you get discovered the bullshit ends I ain't stopping BATTERING RAM RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON THRU TO YOU Some people got no reliance some people are shit Some people got no validity not a bit Some people want to break down what's inside if they can But I go right thru them I'm a Battering Ram Been running my whole life and I'm still running The man who talked shit I shut him down he's through Beat down the lies till they're black and blue He talked so much shit but not today I'm a siege engine get outta my way I disregard the attempt to take me out I curse the thought of another bout but it's my method I ain't stopping BATTERING RAM RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON THRU TO YOU To fucking you Some people are rotten deep down to the core Some people got the kick of a bull and the lies of a chronic thief in store Some people try to take you out if they can But I go right thru them I'm a Battering Ram BATTERING RAM RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON THRU TO YOU

MICK JENKINS "Trees & Truths"
[Jean Deaux:] They say there's gon' be a downpour They say the water's gon' wash away my people (You tell them, you tell them I'm coming, tell them then...) [Mick Jenkins:] You probably gon' need a boat I'm thinking kindred to Titanic, like why panic It all depend on who whipping that bitch [?] to slave masters, punish a slave faster It all depend on who whipping that bitch She stripping, it all depend on who tipping that bitch I bet it's no king of diamonds She showed those niggas love, diamond in rough That's a ten of clubs, they told her it was gon' rain They told her "do those drugs" then she'll feel no pain Nigga check the correlation, ideas realized by corporations In communities where people are too poor for patience Ooh, I know you hear that truth that I spit like a relaxed tooth Cold turkied all the politics, I'm relaxed proof Cold shouldered all the ops they probably cashews If you can't see the tree, in truth, you probably think cash rules I got no time for your living, writing pennies for the thought Drop a dime for your living, look around nigga, we can see the signs are the limit Section 8 'bout as low as the pigeons, we did it, too fly My nigga too fly, our people dying I ain't kidding like a [?] [Jean Deaux:] They say there's gon' be a downpour (They say there's gon' be a downpour) They say the water's gon' wash away my people (They say the water gon' wash us away, no) Everybody gon' need a boat (Everybody gon' need a boat) They say there's gon' be a downpour (They say there's gon' be a downpour) [Jean Deaux:] I thought that it was simple, we treading water from my house My body is a temple, he bows and prays that he makes it back to the shore I feel my head flooding with thoughts, temples sore as shit Tryna figure out how you got me open, preposterous oceans Catch you floating on your merry boat there My thighs is hurting, my soul is yearning, my feelings current The tides can be a current, we were burning Tell us 'God is gon' save us" now where was this nigga when rain didn't let up The whole thing is set up soon as we get away my brothers always gettin' wet up You tell me that you love me, but I can't remember times he was chill when shit was ugly It's you that's gone that fuckin' hurting me, who the fuck you think you is, the black Hercules? And you supposed to the save the world, ain't it the perfect dreams? We walked the perfect seas, desert the Earth and save the dragon He gave you super powers, ain't that how it fuckin' happens? I lose a love you, lose a life, now ain't that fuckin' tragic? And I'm just supposed to praise the Lord and live in all the madness? (Live in all the madness) [Jean Deaux:] They say there's gon' be a downpour (They say there's gon' be a downpour) They say the water's gon' wash away my people (They say the water gon' wash us away, no) Everybody gon' need a boat (Everybody gon' need a boat) They say there's gon' be a downpour (They say there's gon' be a downpour) [Mick Jenkins:] Row out, row out, row out, row out Row to up in a boat Oh that boat we were drowning and it's true Who left us drowning and it's true Row out, row out, row out, row out Row to up in a boat Row to up in a boat

World Of Her Own

PETER ANDRE "The Long Road Back"
I heard a sound in the distance I remember so clear And it drew me closer As if fate brought me right here Right here at the doorway Where the night would begin I didn't feel like a stranger They said just come on in Where the music was playing it was gettin me started People all around me But I didn't expect what my eyes saw next She mesmerized me By the way that she moved She was dancing Dancing like nobody's watching In a world of her own She was moving Moving like no-one was watching So how could I let her know? As I stepped 2 the dance floor People getting down I'm trying not 2 focus, but I Keep lookin around I knew I had 2 approach her But she seemed so far away Then came the right moment Let nuthin stand in my way The music was playing it was gettin me started People all around me But she didn't expect what I told her her She mesmorized me By the way that she moved She was dancing Dancing like nobody's watching In a world of her own She was moving Moving like no-one was watching So how could I let her know? I had 2 say girl You look so good You are the one you know that you got the look Then I see her smiling She understands We can move together We were dancing Dancing like nobody's watching In a world of our own We were moving Moving like one-one was watching But how could I let her know? She was dancing I was watching She was moving In a world of her own

All The Way Around

ALI LOHAN
Oh yeah I should have known it was you all along I didn't know what i had til it was gone Now i'm fallin' down, fallin' down, fallin' down And the trouble with the truth that you face Is that you're haunted by all your mistakes And now i'm callin' out, callin' out But you can't be found, can't be found Those nights those days will not be replaced When I throw them away [CHORUS] I had to go all the way around I had to go all the way around Just to figure out how to get back where I started from I had to search higher and low I had to search everywhere to know That everything I wanted was what I had (Had to go) all the way around just to get back where I started from All the way around All the way around All the way around Just to get back where I started from Just to get back where I started from Would you listen to a heart that has learned Could you give another chance to this girl I'm so sorry now, sorry now, sorry now Can't believe that I might be too late I see my future when i'm starin at your face I'm not letting go cuz we belong I was a fool baby I was wrong And these arms they ache And this soul is in pain 'Cause I threw the best thing I ever had away [CHORUS] I had to go all the way around I had to go all the way around Just to figure out how to get back where I started from I had to search higher and low I had to search everywhere to know That everything I wanted I was what I had (Had to go) all the way around just to get back where I started from All the way around All the way around All the way around Just to get back where i started from Just to get back where i started from [x2] Oh and these arms they ache And this soul is in pain 'Cause I threw the best thing I ever had away I had to go all the way around I had to go all the way around Just to figure out how to get back where I started from I had to search higher and low I had to search everywhere to know That everything I wanted was what I had (Had to go) all the way around just to get back where I started from All the way around All the way around All the way around Just to get back where i started from Just to get back where i started from [x2]
