We Are The People Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

If you're feelin' shut down
May my thoughts be with you
If you're a black man bein' beat down
And shoved all around
May my thoughts be with you

If your world's gettin' a little too tough
You know our thoughts are with you
Hey, I know that it's crazy out there
And my thoughts are with you

We are the people and we live forever
We are the people and our future's written
On the wind, on the wind

If you are one of the homeless
May our thoughts be with you
If you are scared and alone
You know our thoughts are with you

If you are one of the fortunate ones
We all know it's lonely up there
We understand that nobody's got it made
So our thoughts are with you

We are the people and we live forever
We are the people and our future's written
On the wind, on the wind

See yourself as a leader
May my thoughts be with you
If you try to divide and conquer
We'll rise up against you

We know only the strong will survive
But the meek will inherit
So if you've got a coat of arms, oh friend
I suggest we wear it

We are the people and we live forever
We are the people and our future's written
On the wind, on the wind
