David And The Citizens – Things They Hold So Dear lyrics

They talk about nothing in here
They talk about nothing all the time
And they tell you how you should work and they
Tell you how you should act
But it doesn't count
It doesn't count

Fly over their heads and out of here
Passing all things they hold so dear
While they keep talking
While they're all speaking
But I can't hear
Cause I don't care

I'm only bothered by the fact that they're all so pretty

And if the apple falls close to the tree
What does it really mean to me?
Am I gonna fall
Am I gonna go just like you did?
