Battles – Atlas lyrics
People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Kitchen is the cook, whoa-ey-oh
Scissors are the barbers, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
The chorus full of actors

People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
Kitchen is the cook, whoa-ey-oh
Scissors are the barbers, whoa-ey-oh
Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh
The chorus full of actors

People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

People wont be people when they hear this sound
That's been glowing in the dark at the edge of town
People wont be people
No the people won't be people when they hear this sound
Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town

    I think this song has a lot to do with the concept of imposters, with lines like "singer is a crook" and "chorus full of actors". As for the main lyrics, it kinda sounds like something sinister is near and is making people act out. It probably has some deeper meaning, but vague lyrics like this are written so people can put whatever scenario they want over it.
    As a whole, I think it sounds like a song about conspiracy.
