"How We Are" as written by Scot Golley, Daniel Benjamin Yemin, David J Palaitis, Ari Zev Katz and Peter M Martin....
The kids won't come around tonight.
They're staying home.
And what if we played to only 23.
It's how we are.

And I heard you got us figured out.
And now there's talk about the band,
But we don't hear cause we don't care.
It's how we are.

It's how we are.
We'll go our way.
We may have changed, but we're still here and we came to play.
We'll go our way.

We may have changed, but we're still here.
The kids won't come around tonight.
They're staying home.
And what if we played to only 23.

It's how we are.
And I heard you got us figured out.
And now there's talk about the band,
But we don't hear cause we don't care.

It's how we are.
It's how we are.
Whoa.
It's how we are.

    General CommentIn my opinion,this song is about how fickle the general public can be. It's them saying 'yeah,we know you think we're the next big thing but we can play shows to less than 30 kids and be comfortable because that's "how we are."'

    General CommentThis song is amazing. So much energy, best song they play live imo.

    Like "ironandwine" said, it's all about how fickle the kids in the scene can be. Probably following their new sound in JBD as oppossed to the "by-the-book" hardcore sound of their earlier stuff, so certain kids started trashin them for "sellin out" or whatever.
    I get that feeling from lines like "We may have changed, but we're still here and we came to play" and "now there's talk about the band".

    But they don't give a shit what ppl are saying "we don't hear", coz they are what they are n they're not out to please anyone. =)
    GREAT SONG.
