Who We Are - Imagine Dragons



Experience: When it doesn't matter how hard you try, or how successful you are. When they don't care. When they hate you simply because of who you are. What do you do?

Music Video: Still waiting...

Meaning of Who We Are: When you have to choose between what everyone else wants you to be and who you really are... there is no choice. People won't respect you for caving in and betraying who you are. They'll just despise you even more. The lyrics of Who We Are focus on the moment of crisis, when you have to choose and you realize how hard it's going to be to stick to your guns in the face of the insults they're throwing at you. But the rhythm draws on the defiance you need to fight it out. 

Ask Yourself: Do you care about your identity and dreams? Enough to fight for them?


LYRICS:

Up in the morning
Up in the evening
Picking down talks
With the birds come out to eat

Up in the mountain
Down in the king' s lear
Pushing these boxes
In the heat of the afternoon, afternoon.

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here at all
No

It’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day

So won’t you save us
What we are
Don’t look clear
Cause it’s all up hill from here
Up in the attic
Down in the cellar
Lost in the static
Coming back for more
Oh for more

Out with the reason
In with the season
Taking down names
In my book of jealousy
Jealousy

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here at all
No

It’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day

Because it’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day

So won’t you save us
What we are
Don’t look clear
Cause it’s all up hill from here

Ohhhh

They say we’re crazy (x8)

It’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day
Because it’s who we are
Doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far
Doesn’t matter if it’s all okay
Doesn’t matter if it’s not our day

So won’t you save us
What we are
Don’t look clear
Cause it’s all up hill from here
Ohhhh
