    There is something about this song that I really like! Empire of the Sun is an Aussie band whose music is described as electroacoustic. I heard this song on the radio at work and always give me a light summer feeling. But I still haven't worked out what the music video is supposed to mean. How is the song related to the Mexican festival Day of the Dead? Anyway maybe this explains some of it:

    Luke Steele: We didn’t want to hold back. Someone said: 'If you want to change the world, stop acting like the world.' We want to be otherworldly....We want it to be mega. The imagery is so powerful and beautiful. As Einstein said: 'Imagination is more important than knowledge.' (Nick Littlemore: This is no time to hold back) 'Those who surrender to positivity, will surely survive.' >>The Sunday Times, February 1 2009

    We are the People

    We can remember swimming in December,
    Heading for the city lights in 1975,
    We share in each other,
    Nearer than father,
    The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes.
     
    We are the people that rule the world
    A force running in every boy and girl,
    All rejoicing in the world,
    Take me now - we can try.
     
    We lived an adventure
    Love in the summer,
    Followed the sun till night
    Reminiscing other times of life,
    For each every other
    The feeling was stronger,
    The shock hit eleven - got lost in your eyes.
     
    I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me,
    But I know I try,
    Are you gonna leave me now,
    Can't you be believing now.
     
    Can you remember and humanise,
    It was still where we'd energised,
    Lie in the sand and visualise
    Like it's 75 again.
     
    We are the people that rule the world
    A force running in every boy and girl,
    All rejoicing in the world,
    Take me now - we can try.
     
    I know everything about you,
    You know everything about me,
    Know everything about us.
