     e.Name as EntityName
    ,a.Name as AttributeName
    ,l.Label as AttributeLabel
    from EntityView e
    inner join AttributeView a on e.EntityId=a.EntityId
    left join LocalizedLabelView l on a.AttributeId=l.ObjectId and l.LabelTypeCode=1 and l.objectcolumnName='DisplayName'
    order by e.Name,a.Name

  • Those are the customized form labels and you will need to parse the xml in the FormXml column in the SystemForm table to work that out.
