THE MESSAGE OF

We Stand

lyrics

Look through the atmosphere

I see it all and it looks so clear

Our time has come 

To become one

What seems so far is yet so near

The unknown is all we fear

Its why we run

From where we've come

I know we belong

I know we belong

 

We stand

Over the rivers 

Dividing our lands

We can

Build our bridges

and pave our paths

 

We stand

I see you and you see me

We're dancing to the same heartbeat

Lets rise above

Lets fly as one

We're closer than you may think

The truth is flowing through our veins

The time has come 

To be someone

I know we belong

And I know we belong

 

We stand

Over the rivers 

Dividing our lands

We can

Build our bridges

and pave our paths

Alone 

I will go
Far away from what I know

To grow

On your own

Look deep inside the unknown

We stand

Over the rivers 

Dividing our lands

We can

Build our bridges

and pave our paths

We Stand

THE STORY BEHIND

We Stand

THE MELODY OF WE STAND WAS CONCEIVED DURING THE FALL OF 2019 AFTER A LATE NIGHT GIG IN DAVENPORT, IOWA. IT WAS WRITTEN DURING A JAM SESSION WITH NOTHING BUT ACOUSTIC GUITARS, TAMBOURINE, AND A SHAKER. IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE FIRST JAM, WE WERE ENERGIZED AND KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING THERE. ON THE RIDE HOME TO CHICAGO THE NEXT MORNING, DAVEN (OUR LEAD SINGER), TRIED TO DRAFT THE FIRST LINES OF LYRICS, BUT NOTHING STUCK. WHEN WRITING A SONG WE TRY TO LET THE LYRICS FLOW AS NATURALLY AS POSSIBLE IN HOPES OF MAKING THE SONG EASIER TO REMEMBER. SO AFTER THAT DAY, WE LET THE SONG REST UNTIL WE FELT THE SONG NEEDED TO BE PICKED UP AGAIN. SOMETIMES TIME IS THE BEST TOOL WHEN IT COMES TO SONGWRITING. 

IN MAY 2020 DURING A REHEARSAL, WE FELT THE NEED TO COME BACK TO THE SONG. THE WORLD HAD CHANGED, WE WERE AT THE START OF THE PANDEMIC, POLITICAL & RACIAL TENSIONS WERE HIGH, AND WHAT FELT 'NORMAL' WAS SO FAR AWAY FROM REALTY, IT WAS A SCARY TIME. WE FELT THE NEED TO WRITE A SONG ABOUT 

 

- BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER

- STANDING UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN

- GROWING DESPITE YOUR FEAR

 

IT WAS THESE THINGS THAT CULTIVATED THE IDEA OF WE STAND AND WHAT MAKES US EXCITED TO SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD. WE WANT TO BE A PART OF THE CHANGE THAT MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME, WE'RE DOING WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO.
