Song of the Day #1,773: ‘Are We All We Are?’ – Pink

pink_truth_about_lovePink’s The Truth About Love was one of last year’s best albums, better even than its predecessor Funhouse, another fine pop-rock record.

Pink has quietly (and loudly) become one of the best pop songwriters and performers recording today. She is adept at both pulsating anthems like today’s track and emotional balladry (such as her duet with fun.’s Nate Ruess that is currently all over the place).

Oh
Oh
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
Cut to now holy wow
When did everything become such a hell of a mess?
Maybe now, maybe now
Can somebody come and take this off my chest?
I know you think it’s not your problem
I know you think that God will solve them
But if your shit is not together it’ll never be
You and me
Plant the seed
Open up and let it be
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Oh
Oh
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Seven seconds
Seven seconds
That is all the time you got to make your point
My attention, my attention’s like an infant tryin’ to crawl around this joint
I know I’m better than the masses
But we’re all followin’ our asses
And if our shit is not together
It’ll never be
You and me
Plant the seed
Open up and let it be
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (rest of)
Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

Four, that’s how many years it took me to get through the lesson
That I had to do it all my own
Three, that’s how many Hail Mary’s they would pay for me
Thinkin’ I was gonna end up all alone
Two, for second chances that you’ve given me
Can it be lucky me, lucky me
Now let’s go
One, it’s what we are, it’s what we are

Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)

Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are
We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
We’ve had our fill
We’ve had enough
We’ve had it up to here
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

We are the people that you’ll never get the best of
Not forget the rest of (Rest of)
Oh
Cut to the future sing it loud and take the power back
Are we all we are
Are we all we are

    No denying that Pink is a talent. This song doesn’t do much for me though.

    What the heck do those lyrics really mean? Seems like drivel and nonsense.
