"We're Here" as written by and Curt Kirkwood....
The night is restless
But no dream's in sight
And the sounds have no beginnings or ends
And their glow is not a light

The walls turn into waterfalls
With water made of thoughts that call
"It's not OK to tip the glass
Don't make a noise or shed a tear
You're not the only one that's things have changed now we are here"

We are not the king and queen
What we are ties in between
The blankets that you've never seen
But over you are spread

"We are here" the voices sing
"We are here" the echo thunders
"Yes we are" the doorbell rings
"Here we are and here in numbers"

The others came in from the hall
And thoughts with voices start to call
"It's not OK to tip the glass
Or smile too long or shed a tear
You're not alone the way you thought
Things have changed now we are here"

    General Commentthis song is really beautiful. it makes me think of tripping on acid. I think that's what it's about actually. It's about being totally outside your head and then suddenly being like whoa. I'm here.

    General Commenti had originally thought this song described the onset of schizophrenia - auditory hallucinations, command delusions, bizzarre thinking. tripping on drugs would more likely cause visual hallucinations. but then somebody told me that curt had twins (katherine and elmo) around the time he wrote this song. that explains a lot! reread the lyrics thinking about kurt having newborn twins in the house, and all the relatives coming over to see the babies!

    General Commentit does makes me think of acid tripping, but also of depression and reliance on one's friends.
    I really love the second verse.

    "it's not ok to tip the glass,
    or smile too long, or shed a tear"

    like the guy is staring into his wine.

    sounds a bit like the voices are telling him not to succumb to self-indulgent melancholy.
    One of my favourite songs from MPII.
