People Help The People Lyrics

God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
guess he kissed the girls and made them cry
those Hardfaced Queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken lives
Fiery throne of muted angels
Giving love but getting nothing back oh

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
i'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding, in that world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies
A thousand slowly dying sunsets

God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess the loneliness came knocking
No on needs to be alone, oh save me

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

The irony of living in a world of people who want to be loved yet are somehow unable to find what they are seeking. It is about taking the hard road, loving others in a world that does not value love.

I think she's saying that we care about superficial things; ignoring the pain of others. We see ppl on the streets hungry, sick, poor, look right thru them & go on about our 'inconscequential' lives!

This song is clearly about looking around and seeing people who are good hearted and are in need of help. Then comes 'rich' men and women who are too stubborn or selfish to help the good hearted people who are in need of help! The song is saying that people should work together and help eachother :)

this wonderful song tells how some of us humans have the nerve to judge one another and mistreat each other when we actually need to start being there for each other before our generation dies out and then we really wont have time to help one another.

I think the lyrics are actually: Oh and if I had to break (not had a brain, duh people!!). Also: No one needs to be alone, or sick (not oh save me). Love this song

Is it about someone being able to use prostitutes and not caring about them and the writers thoughts on that... How he couldn't do that himself? ...

The song is a support to people, standing in the light, knowing that love is the only way, and giving them hope in the fact that they are all connected and on the right road to a better world. Though
