People As Places As People - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

To answer the questions it'll probably take more
If you're already there, well you probably don't know
Well we were the people that we wanted to know
And we're the places that we wanted to go

It's hard to get hold of and hard to let go
Always something we'd looked for from the day we were born
Instead we're the people that we wanted to know
And we're the places that we wanted to go

And we're the places that we wanted to go
And we're the places that we wanted to go
And we're the places that we wanted to go

Always askin' a question and I don't want to know,
Like the wind across strings that had finally let go
And the people you loved but you didn't quite know
And they're the places that you wanted to go

Bark at the neighbors and then bark at the door
A snifflin' and wimperin' for someone to know,
But we were the people that we wanted to know

And we're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah we're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah we're the places that we wanted to go

It was not the intention but we let it all go,
Well it messed up the function and it fucked up the flow!
I hardly have people that I needed to know
'Cuz you're the people that I wanted to know

All this scrambling 'round huntin' high and then low
Lookin' for a face, love or somewhere to go
I hardly have places that I needed to go
'Cuz you're the places that I wanted to go,
Yeah you're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah, you're the places that we wanted to go

You shouldn't have to ask
You shouldn't have to ask
'Cuz we are your ripcord

You shouldn't have to ask
