Ana Johnsson We Are Lyrics

Last updated: 12/26/2012 01:26:46 PM

See the devil on the doorstep now (my oh my)
Telling everybody oh just how to live their lives
Sliding down the information highway
Buying in just like a bunch of fools
Time is ticking and we can't go back (my oh my)

What about the world today
What about the place that we call home
We’ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands and come out clean
Fail to recognise the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are, we are

One step forward making two steps back (my oh my)
Riding piggy on the bad boys back for life
Lining up for the grand illusion
No answers for no questions asked
Lining up for the execution
Without knowing why

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands and come out clean
Fail to recognise the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are, we are

It’s all about power then
By taking control
Breaking the will
Raping the soul
They suck us dry till there’s nothing left
My oh my, my oh my

What about the world today
What about the place that we call home
We' ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone....

So alone

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands and come out clean
Fail to recognise the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are, we are

It’s all about power then (we are)
By taking Control (we are)
Breaking the will (we are, we are)
Breathing the soul (we are)
They suck us dry till there’s nothing left (we are, we are)
My oh my, my oh my

We are
We are (its all )
We are
We are, we are (take control)
We are
We are
It’s all about power
By taking control.

REFLECTION WANTED | Reviewer: Frederik Bulow | 12/26/12

Are everyone totally ignorant to the inherit critizism of the US and the west from an outsiders point of view?
9 out of 10 times a person dies on this planet its because we CHOOSE not to make a difference.
NOT making a decision is ALSO a dicision! But we bow our heads to people that we deem smarter than ourselves and tell ourselves that we are not responsible.

But we ARE!

(or as my dad was quoted to have told LBJ " reviewing the US democracy, I deduct, that maybe its not the state of Denmark there is something rotten in")

Song FiX | Reviewer: ZX | 8/22/09

It's not "Breaking the Soul" - It's "Raping the Soul". You cannot BREAK a soul. And using the same line twice in this song is not concise with the other lyrics.
=====================================
Revised (Final Studio/Audio) Version:
=====================================
See the devil on the doorstep now, my oh why?
Telling everybody, oh, just how to live their lives.
Sliding down the information highway,
Buying in just like a bunch of fools.
Time is ticking and we can't go back, my oh why?

What about the world today?
What about the place that we call home?
We’ve never been so many,
And we've never been (so alone).

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence.
You keep talking but it makes no sense.
You say we're not responsible.
But we are, we are.

You wash your hands and come out clean.
You fail to recognise the enemies within.
You say we're not responsible.
But we are, we are, we are.

One step forward making two steps back, my oh why?
Riding piggy on the bad boys back for life.
Lining up for the grand illusion,
No answers for no questions asked.
Lining up for the execution, without knowing why.

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence.
You keep talking but it makes no sense.
You say we're not responsible.
But we are, we are.

You wash your hands and come out clean.
You fail to recognise the enemies within.
You say we're not responsible.
We are, we are.

It’s all about power and by taking control.
Breaking the will and raping the soul.
They suck us dry till there’s nothing left.
My oh my, why oh why?

What about the world today?
What about the place that we call home?
We' ve never been so many,
And we've never been so alone.

So alone.

[Chorus]
Keep watching from your picket fence.
You keep talking but it makes no sense.
You say we're not responsible.
We are, we are.

You wash your hands and come out clean.
You fail to recognise the enemies within.
You say we're not responsible.
We are, we are, we are.

It’s all about power and by taking Control (we are).
Breaking the will (keep watching from your picket fence) and raping the soul (we are).
They suck us dry till there’s nothing left (we are, we are).
My oh why?

We are.
We are (its all ).
We are.
We are, we are (take control).
We are.
We are.
It’s all about power and by taking control.

Very related to our modern world | Reviewer: Karrie | 7/18/09

Also it seems incredibly fitting to the story of Harry Potter... I've seen a couple of music videos with it and it just feels as if the song was written for these series because that's exactly a theme that runs in them. Sorry spider-man fans, I'm not saying anything against Spiderman the movie, just my opinion that it fits the Harry Potter theme perfectly! .... as well as the theme that runs in our world atm... which Harry Potter is also a reflection of.

Great song, well done, Anna! =)

lyric correction and review | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/5/08

I Love this song and there is a slight correction in the lyrics.

It is Breaking the soul
You wash your hands and you come out clean
But Fail to recognize the enemies within

We are
We are (its all )
We are
We are, we are (take control)
We are
We are (its all )

(thats all for the corrections)

????? | Reviewer: dolfin2gelfling@yahoo.com | 11/21/07

alright; i love this song too but the lyrics that are on this site are slightly wrong, unless the person got it from the CD "booklet" with the lyrics in it. (1) i think it's "breathing the soul" cause the "breaking" part sounds different than the first (2) and it is not "breaking the rule" it's (what sounds like) "breaking the will"
that's all i have to say about it. if you want to tell me that you got it from the "booklet" that comes with the CDs, then e-mail me; i don't mind.
