alexthomasdavis – People Aren't Poets lyrics

Cos people aren't poets
They just know everything

They don't show it
They just have a quick fling/live on shoe strings
Cos people aren't poets
There's no streak that runs deep
Their bodies tow it
But their minds are cheap
I know you know
But you wont go
And just say so

    This song is a criticism of people who have no interest in poetry, or lifes poetry. The verses set up the situation and the chorus shouts out to them, asking them to speak up and enjoy a bit of the poetry of life. This is the title track of the album and the whole album revolves around this theme.
