Free us from all excess

06/05/11

New layout! It’s is just another simple CSS layout. But, the colors have a summer scheme. The title is a lyric from You, Me And The Bourgeoisie by The Submarines.

Here I am with all the pleasures of the first world
Laid out before me
Who am I to breakdown?

Everyday I wake up
I choose love, I choose light, and I try
Too easy just to fall apart

Oh my baby don't be so distressed
We're done with politesse
It's time to be so brutally honest about
The way we know we long for something fine
When we pine for higher ceilings
And bourgeois happy feelings

And here we are in the center of the first world
Laid out for us
Who are we to break down?

Everyday we wake up
We choose love, we choose light, and we try
Too easy just to fall apart

Plastic Bottles
Imported Water
Cars we drive wherever we want to
Clothes we buy it's sweatshop labor
Drugs from corporate enablers
We're not living the Good life
Unless we're fighting the Good fight
You and Me just trying to get it right

In the center of the first world
Laid out for us
Who are we to break down?

Everyday we wake up
We choose love, we choose light, and we try
Too easy just to fall apart

Love can free us from all excess
From our deepest debts
'Cause when our hearts are full we need much less

Yeah I know we long for something fine
When we pine for higher ceilings
And bourgeois happy feelings

But, here we are in the center of the first world
Laid out for us
Who are we to break down?

Here we are in the center of the first world
Laid out for us
Who are we to break down?

Everyday we wake up
We choose love, we choose light, and we try
Too easy just to fall apart

Everyday we wake up
We choose love, we choose light, and we try
Too easy just to fall apart
