Where Were You?

Story Behind The Song

When I feel helpless about the fight for humans rights , equality, saving the planet and ending white supremacy, it helps to sing about it. We have the data, and we know what we must do. It's going to take significant change from big policies all the way down to us individuals. But we have the power. It's time to get our priorities in order. It's time to choose humanity over money. It's time to make a change.

Song Description

In order to save the planet and have true equality we're going to have to make some big changes. We get stuck in our ways and refuse to change, but we have to stop pretending we can't see the truth. Each of us have a part to play. So what will you say in the end? Did you see the data and do nothing? Or did you try to change?

Lyrics

Where were we?
That's what they're gonna say.
What are you gonna say in the end?
Where were you when you could have made a change?
Lookin' at you when we're lookin' to blame...
So did you try to change?
Did you try to change?
Did you try to Change?

Where are we?
Where's our bravery?
It's not like we were drafted and shipped overseas.
Maybe sacrifices aren't really sacrifices...
Maybe we're exactly where we need to be.

SO Where were we?
That's what they're gonna say.
What are you gonna say in the end?
Where were you when you could have made a change?
Lookin' at you when we're lookin' to blame...
So did you try to change? For me?
Did you try to change? For me?
Did you try to Change? For Humanity?

Can't you see?
We've been fed this lie.
One they teach, yea everything is fair and fine.
But I beg of you, take the wool from your eyes.
The truth has always been right in front of you.

SO Where were we?
That's what they're gonna say.
What are you gonna say in the end?
Where were you when you could have made a change?
Lookin' at you when we're lookin' to blame...
So did you try to change? For me?
Did you try to change? For me?
Did you try to Change? For Humanity?

What are you gonna say, when the children say, "Where were you when you could have made a change?"
