about

When I first wrote and recorded this (over a year ago), "People Out There" was a protest song aimed at inaction, ineffectiveness and the relation between the two... With the election results from the other day, this has a sadder meaning.

A shout out should be given to 40 Thieves' Layne Fox, for mixing this version, and adding some sheen to the stems.

lyrics

PEOPLE OUT THERE

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN FIGHT
AND THERE ARE PEOPLE... THAT THINK THEY CAN
BUT SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY CAN FIGHT,
THEY CAN’T…
AT THE MOMENT THEY THINK THEY CAN

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN LOVE
AND THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY CAN
AND SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY CAN LOVE,
THEY CAN’T…
SO ALONE, THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN THINK
AND THERE ARE PEOPLE... THAT THINK THEY CAN
BUT SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY CAN THINK,
THEY CAN’T…
THEY’RE JUST STALLIN’ MAN

TO ALL THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE READY TO FIGHT,
C'MON PEOPLE! IT'S TIME TO SHOUT IT AND MAKE DEMANDS...
AND IF THOSE FUCKERS WON'T COME TO THE LIGHT
LET’S SHUT IT OFF… NO USE IN SHAKIN’ A THUMBLESS HAND.

THIS IS OUR MOTHER
THIS IS OUR WORLD
SHE TRUMPS DIRTY DOLLARS
SHE’S MY BABY, MY GIRL

AND WHEN I HEAR HER HOLLER
MY FINGERS, THEY CURL
THESE FISTS TO PROTECT
THESE FISTS FOR MY WORLD

about

Ownership San Francisco, California

OWNERSHIP is Cole Odin Berggren. It's hard-driving, psychedelic-electronic rock for NOW. Born from the twin hearts of San Francisco- a gritty underground DJ scene, and the blinding light of a rock and roll stage, it is music inspired by the raw moments of the human experience. It loves the hairs on end, uncontrollable smiles, and the concept of a song you can't take off repeat. ... more
