The Submarines - You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie



The Submarines is one of those bands that I like the first time I hear them. They're not those that have to grow on me before I can say I like them. I actually first fell in love with their song, "Xavia" which was played in the movie "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist." A movie that is pointless but amazing because of the songs that they played there. Makes me want to burn mix CDs and label them according to my mood.

And here we are in the center of the first world
It's laid out before us, who are we to break down?

Everyday we wake up, we choose love, we choose light
And we try, it's 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
It's laid out before us, who are we to break down?



MORAL: Cause when our hearts are full, we need much less.
