"This Is Who We Are" as written by and Pugh/pepper/sanders/hudson....
Patience, child it will find you
Your deepest dreams will guide you
The moment that you're born
All night my fear inside will come through
Haunting right behind you
Don't let it get that far

Somehow
Breathe a little deeper now
Cause this is who we are
When we look into their eyes
Don't fly so high
So high little bird
You'll get your wings clipped
We'll pick it up, pick it up
Now you've learned

Searching
For moment that defines you
Your deepest dreams remind you
Get out before you're gone
Now that all you hear is what surrounds you
Push it out, give it out
From around you
Never stop and you will find it all

[Chorus]

So we decide
We decided
We decide this now
So find out how we can survive
How we can survive
If we learn how to live our lives
If we learn how to live

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song is absolutely mesmerizing. As for the meaning it obviously has to do with taking control and learning from your life. I have to say it's my favorite off their new album.

    General Commentgreat song - incredible guitar

    My opinion: The overall theme in the song is to stay grounded in life. It may have some correlation to the band becoming instantly famous on MTV and how they struggle with staying the same people they were before the stardom.

    General Commenti can't believe there are so few comments on this song!
    in my opinion, it's definitely one of their best. i absolutely love it.

    i think this song basically means to stay true to yourself, and things will come to you on their own.
