We Are What We Are Lyrics

4. We Are What We Are (5:25)
I walked down from the mountain,
failed to find youth from the fountain.
I summoned the Gods of old by a song,
and then I killed them all!

When there was a storm, I sang louder.
After I failed I tried harder.
If I didn't like how the lake reflected me,
the lake would dry!

I am a human,
disgraceful is humanity.
I am a human,
destroyer of many worlds, not one!

I can end another animal,
deeming they are suffering.
But this ample mercy’s not for me.

Man came down from the mountain,
blind for the love all around him.
The last beautiful heartbeat!

We could save our world,
but we are what we are.
We should love our earth,
but we are what we are.

It takes care of our loved ones,
but we are what we are!

You haven’t thought of this, have you?
The place we call home, without value.
If you didn’t like how the songbird greeted thee,
the bird would die!

The ship we leave behind us,
has no anchor.
Thus your only child,
will sail too far from the sun.

We could save our world,
but we are what we are.
We should love our earth,
but we are what we are.

It takes care of our loved ones,
but we are what we are

We could save our world,
but we are what we are.
We should love our earth,
but we are what we are.

And take care of our loved ones,
but we are what we are!

We could love our world,
but we are what we are.
We should save our earth,
but we are what we are.

It would save our loved ones,
but we are what we are...

But what are we?
