about

Full of compassion and love, this is an alternative folk rock anthem for the time. The bulbul tarang, lap steel guitar, and guitalele add an unique sound to this trippy and absorbing arrangement. The message is one we all need to keep in our minds: together we will get through this.

lyrics

We are all just people
Seeing charts and numbers
We are all the people
Behind the numbers
When numbers represent
Sickness and death
No one wants to be or know
Another number

Break free from your mind
Of fear
Find strength
Find love
Break free from your mind
Of fear
Be kind
Be love

It’s easy to dismiss
Truth before experience
It’s hard to believe
What we can’t directly see
But to keep more people safe
To keep people alive
Trust the scientists
Numbers do not lie

Break free from your mind
Of fear
Find strength
Find love
Break free from your mind
Of fear
Be kind
Be love

Compassion for each other
Will help reduce the numbers
Compassion for ourselves
Will help ensure our health
Compassion for each other
Will help comfort the numbers
Compassion for ourselves
Will help us all get well
Compassion for each other
Will make us more than numbers
Compassion for ourselves
Empowers us to love

We are all just people
Seeing charts and numbers
We are all the people
Behind the numbers
When numbers represent
Sickness and death
Trust the scientists
Trust the evidence

We must do all that we can
To reduce the numbers now
No one wants to be or know
Another number
We are all built to survive
We all have valuable lives
If we put our trust in facts
We will reduce the numbers

With warm hearts and cool heads
With compassion and kindness
Together we will overcome
Together we will get through this
Together we will overcome
Together we will get through this
Together we will overcome
Together we will get through this
Together we will overcome
Together we will get through this
