We Lyrics

For only takers, stand and take in where you are
Turn around and face it, you're adjacent to the scar
"I want mine here though!"
We heard that story before

What you think we're tamin' with the towers and the oar?
You keep evading boy, you putting me flat on the floor
It's okay, you were young when you were gave it
But you stayed there

And you'd expect it when we photograph our scars
Some lonely fable that we took in then right from the start

I want it back
I want it back
Won't you tell me how to get it back?
I want it back
I want it back
Why won't you tell me how to get it back?
My, my
my, my

I'm comin' over for another story told
I'm sayin', homie, that it's not what you been sold
It's hardly what you'd know

The ordinary something neither of us holds
No folding gold for protecting from the lords
Who's that really we leave out in the cold?
But they're depending, so you just keep giving pause
"I must defend it," oh the tariffs hit you hard
Just keep adding up boy, you'll be below regard

What is the Meaning of We?

Oh, buckle up, folks! Bon Iver is taking us on a lyrical rollercoaster through the theme park of human connections and societal expectations. "We" dives into the deep end of how we face our scars—both literally and metaphorically. The song's protagonist seems to be wrestling with the past, grappling with what they've been handed versus what they're expected to become. It's like being at a family reunion and realizing you're part of a legacy you didn't sign up for. The chorus echoes the universal cry for reclaiming lost parts of oneself amidst life's chaos. So next time you feel like you're just another cog in the societal machine, remember Bon Iver’s call to look inward and challenge what we’ve been told. #BonIver #HumanConnections #SocietalExpectations #ReclaimYourself
