Lyrics

Us versus Us

Written By: Me

Something is wrong with this picture
coz I can't tell my place apart from the rest

I don't know what it's about
it confuses me
What we are doing
fills me with doubt

The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising up
The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising up
The water keeps on rising

And in my head
there's a picture that is different from the way that things are happening round me every single day

And I know it's not right
but when will we learn to throw up our hands and fight?

It is not Them versus us, it is Us versus us
and when we can trust that we are all in this together
we can be free

And these things we do to each other, well I don't wanna hurt you like you hurt one another
I just want to know that in this world there can be some release

The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising up
The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising
The water keeps on rising up
The water keeps on rising

So rise with the water brother
rise with the water sisters
rise with the water children

So rise with the water brother
rise with the water sisters
rise with the water children

Rise up. Rise up.
