Man of the People – Steven Wilson

21 januari 2021

“MAN OF THE PEOPLE is about the person who stands behind the disgraced politician, the religious leader that’s been caught in a sex scandal. The wife, the girlfriend, the husband, the partner, whoever is the family, the children—the people that stand behind these figures that are disgraceful. The collateral damage. I pity these people sometimes.” – SW

Lyrics:
Trust, you know how to take it
Love, you know how to fake it

And I will be there beside you
The camera eye, the drug is just to be near you

Hey, well I can take rejection
Hey, what does it take to get your attention?
Cos you’re a man of the people
A man of the people
And I’m just part of the plan

I lie here like a dog
And think of all I would undo
Anyone would go
But I got nowhere to go to

And what is left of us?
Now there’s only the cinders
Ambition froze me out
Like a demonic winter

Hey, well I can take rejection
Hey, what does it take to get your attention?
Cos you’re a man of the people
A man of the people
And I’m just part of the plan

Hush now, the winter gets you
Hush now, the winter gets you down
