We Are Now

Lyrics

Look at me
I can see
Defeat in your face
Are we in the same place?
Hard times hanging around?
If you feel
Life is coming at you too fast
To make the good last,
All the bad news
Bringing you down

We’re in the process
Even when we feel like this is hopeless
Listen, baby

Don’t waste time
Thinkin’ of yesterday
This is the moment, oh
Don’t waste time
Thinkin’ of yesterday
All we have
Is who we are now
We’re gonna make it
Anything we want
We’re gonna change it
Not gonna fake it
Anything we feel
We’re gonna say it
(All we have
Is who we are now)

What is normal anyway?
It’s what we choose to do day to day
These problems ain’t going away
Unless we change the way we engage the game
Gimme some of that
Low key anarchy
Build our own community
Mentally, socially
Take responsibility
Ain’t nobody gonna do it for us
Raise our voices in a covert chorus

Don’t waste time
Thinkin’ of yesterday
This is the moment, oh
If you feel
Life is coming at you too fast
To make the good last,
All the bad news
Bringing you down…

Let compassion be an act of rebellion
Yelling it, selling it
Showin’ em, tellin’ em (Listen, baby)

Don’t waste time
Thinkin’ of yesterday
This is the moment, oh
Don’t waste time
Thinkin’ of yesterday
All we have
Is who we are now
We’re gonna make it
Anything we want
We’re gonna change it
Not gonna fake it
Anything we feel
We’re gonna say it
(All we have
Is who we are now)
