"We Are One" as written by and Kevin Wasserman Ron Welty....
We are one with ourselves
We don't give a shit about anyone else
Well it won't be wrong until our day in the sun is gonna stop
The walls come tumbling down

[Chorus]
We are one
We are free
We are headed for obscurity
We are one
We are weak
We are gonna make ourselves extinct

Let it go
We're gonna let it go
It's real, we are one
You know it's true
Don't fuck with us or we'll fuck with you
It's a mentality that kills the best
We better stop
The walls come tumbling down

[Chorus]

We are one and it won't be news
When we hang ourselves with one collective noose
Well, it won't be wrong until our day in the sun is gonna stop
The walls come tumbling down

The bigger they are
The harder they fall

    My InterpretationI always figured this song was about humanity and warfare in general. And that if we don't stop fighting or keep threatening warfare we all be extinct from our own stupidity because we failed to realize fighting ultimately won't solve anything.

    General CommentTo me, this song is talking about a lack of unity that is pretty common in the world. It sounds sarcastically written in the point of veiw of a group of people who like to control other people through fear and violence, which will work until, well, it doesn't ("day in the sun is gonna stop, walls come tumbling down"). Could be anything, a gang, a group of bulies, a country, either way, it's a nasty group that will eventually be brought down by its own ways.

    General CommentI think this songs about having that really good friend who you're really connected too, like blood-brothers and stuff like that. When you're against people you've got a friend to back you up...stuff like that.

    This is just my opinion..it's by no means the real meaning (Well, it could be).

    General Commentinteresting theory prodigal. I think its about a group or superpower, posssibly america, that is basically getting so big, it will eventually destroy itself. "We", the people, are destined to fall very soon, "hanging ourselves", or basicaly falling to our own design. its obviously very defensive, "dont fuck with or we'll fuck with you", and pretty concealed in it's own problems, "to give a shit about no one else". Basically, this group is just leaning on each other, rejecting outside influence and is ultimatley headed for disaster. Amazing song.

    General Comment"Let it go
    We're gonna let it go
    It's real, "

    Doesn't even say that in the song.

    General Commentccsims4life is right, why the hell is that in the lyrics...?

    i always figured this song was about the united states and how arrogant we've become in dealing with other countries. "don't fuck with us or we'll fuck with you" for example talking to other countries. i doubt it's about a gang or group of friends, because he says "us" in such a broad sense, i figured it encompassed almost everyone in a society. also "with one collective noose" implies a broader sense than just a small clique. that's just my interpretation.

    General CommentKnowing the 'spring, I would bet they're talking about America, but for me the song is about a generation.
