"The Way We Are" as written by Alexah Carlton, Andreas John, Oliver Kreyssig, Marcus Meyn, Erik Macholl and Heiko Maile....
We have been told
There's only one way to go
But we live different lives
Dreams to unfold
Like a kaleidoscope
Reflecting hundred skies

No hiding
No faking
This life cause it's amazing
You want it
You need it
Beware! It's so contagious

Call it strange
This is the way we are
For beyond your dreams
Break your chains
Open your mind for more
See what it's like to be
The way we are
The way we are

We are so high
We dance on the edge of the sky
Where no one dares to go
Flashes of light
Tell us the time is right
To blow your mind once more

No hiding
No faking
This life cause it's amazing
You want it
You need it
Beware! It's so contagious

Call it strange
This is the way we are
For beyond your dreams
Break your chains
Open your mind for more
See what it's like to be
The way we are
The way we are

No hiding
No faking
This life cause it's amazing

Call it strange
This is the way we are
For beyond your dreams
Break your chains
Open your mind for more
See what it's like to be
The way we are
No hiding
No faking
This life cause it's amazing
The way we are

    My Interpretationone of my fav songs!
    myfavorite lyrics are "break your chains, open your mind for more"
    i think its a song encouraging individuality, and breaking all boundries that normally hold us back from ourselves. :)

    here is how i percieve the song:

    they are told that there is only one acceptable way to live their lives, but they still live differently.
    they have soo many dreams and they will oneday become somthing great
    they dont hide anything, and they dont act a certain way to be accepted by others.
    they their lives they way they choose because they only have this one life, so be who you want. if you be yourself others will follow.
    it dosnt matter if people think they are strange because its who they are, and its far beyond their understandings.
    break your boundries and to open your mind to somthing different
    see what it is like to be different.
    they go to levels where people would not normally go to.
    so they find insperation to do amazing things that will blow peoples minds.
