    Lyrics
    La-da-da-da-da, la-da-da-da-da
    Da-da-da

    We are searchlights, we can see in the dark
    We are rockets, pointed up at the stars
    We are billions of beautiful hearts
    And you sold us down the river too far

    What about us?
    What about all the times you said you had the answers?
    What about us?
    What about all the broken happy ever afters?
    What about us?
    What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
    What about love? What about trust?
    What about us?

    We are problems that want to be solved
    We are children that need to be loved
    We were willin', we came when you called
    But man, you fooled us, enough is enough, oh

    What about us?
    What about all the times you said you had the answers?
    What about us?
    What about all the broken happy ever afters?
    Oh, what about us?
    What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
    Oh, what about love? What about trust?
    What about us?

    Oh, what about us?
    What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
    What about love? What about trust?
    What about us?

    Sticks and stones, they may break these bones
    But then I'll be ready, are you ready?
    It's the start of us, waking up come on
    Are you ready? I'll be ready
    I don't want control, I want to let go
    Are you ready? I'll be ready
    'Cause now it's time to let them know
    We are ready, what about us?

    What about us?
    What about all the times you said you had the answers?
    So what about us?
    What about all the broken happy ever afters?
    Oh, what about us?
    What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
    Oh, what about love? What about trust?
    What about us?

    What about us?
    What about us?
    What about us?
    What about us?
    What about us?
    What about us?

    I suppose it has meaning for you, strikes a personal chord. What I find interesting is that the young fellows at work are listening to music that was part of my youth. I get a daily dose of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones and others from the past, but also an assortment of Metal. I've been working on a playlist in an effort to share something they might not have listened to. I find myself leaning towards more basic music, preferably an acoustic guitar and voice, but I also like something different. Dave Mathews was a favorite for a couple weeks.

    What are we ''waking up'' to? Can you explain why you think that?

    That bankers , corporations , governments , religion( abrahamic especialy ) . Have been for at least a 80yrs taking away Human freedoms . Have manipulated the general populas into wars through patriotism , religion , money .

    That is what Pinks song wakes us up to .

    All these have forgotten and really could careless about Humanity as a whole . They have become cold , detatched from the everyday working people , from blue to white collar people .

    Here

    How many people understand the consequences of the song ?

    How many people actually are aware of the global picture of control ? Control of the populas ?
