People, Running

This song is by Jack's Mannequin and appears on the album People and Things (2011).

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
But still we stand in line
Yeah, this is all addition by subtraction
A simple chain reaction of the mind

Yeah, we are just these people running around
And I am in no hurry to figure it out
We are just like old ships running aground in search of water
In search of water

We are just these people
Such tragic, little things
You take your 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

We are just these people running around
And I am in no hurry to figure it out
We are just like old ships running aground in search of water
In search of water

In search of water
(I think we're learning that the answer never comes)
In search of water
(I think we're standing here, watching people run)
In search of water
Just watching people run

We are just these people running around
And there's no need to worry, we'll figure it out
We are just these people running
People running around in search of water
Just watching people run
