You Me and the Bourgeoisie
The Submarines Lyrics


Here I am with all the pleasures of the first world
Laid out before me who am I to breakdown?

Everyday I wake up,
I choose Love
I choose Light
And I try, it's too easy just to fall apart

Oh my baby don't be so distressed
Were done with politesse
It's time to be so brutally honest about
The way we think long for something fine
When we pine for higher ceilings
And bourgeois happy feelings

And here we are with the pleasures 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?

Everyday we wake up
We choose Love
We choose light
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart

Love can free us from all excess
From our deepest debts
Cause when our hearts are full we need much less

Yea i know we long for something fine
When we pine for higher ceilings
And bourgeois happy feelings

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

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

Everyday we wake up
We choose Love
We choose light
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart

Always found it funny how Apple used this a major corporation, yet this song originally protested the Bourgeoisie and capitalism.. Rad song though for sure!!!

Asher Jackson

@B M hmm. clearly, although it is saying that we are the bourgeoisie, its not representing that in a positive way. "Clothes we buy at sweatshop labor Drugs from corporate neighbors" is hardly a glorification of the bourgeoise. It's protesting it from the inside.

@Joe Lindsey !??

I find it funny how these guys stole my band's name and then threatened to sue me when I tried to play under the name that I invented in 2001.

haven't listened to this song in a long time, obviously, since I'm just now commenting. I'm just curious how much money they made in a capitalistic market with a song that is anti-capitalism.
