Do you think about
Everything you've been through
You never thought you'd be so depressed
Are you wondering
Is it life or death
Do you think that there's no one like you

We are
We are
We are
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one

The life I think about
Is so much better than this
I never thought I'd be stuck in this mess
I'm sick of wondering
Is it life or death
I need to figure out who's behind you

We are
We are
We are
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one

The life I think about
Is so much better than this
I never thought I'd be stuck in this mess
I'm sick of wondering
Is it life or death?

We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one

We stand above the crowd
We stand above the crowd
We stand above the crowd (Crowd)
(We stand) We stand above the crowd
We stand above the crowd (We Stand)
We stand above the crowd

(We are the ones) We stand above the crowd
(We get knocked down get back up) We stand above the crowd
(We are the ones) We stand above the crowd
(We get knocked down get back up) We stand above the crowd

We stand above the crowd
We stand above the crowd
We stand above the crowd

    this song is about overcoming depression.
    & how he is watching his friend or someone close
    to him go through it. he is telling them that
    everyone get's knocked down,
    but if you get back up & stand above the crowd
    they will be the better person.
    this song has inspired me.

    This song means that no matter what your situation, someone else is going through it, too, and your friends will have your back and stand tall with you through to the end and will protect you from enemies who just want to hurt you and upset you. The TDG boys really know how to put these feelings and lessons into their songs.

    This song I dedicate to all the fallen, who get knocked down, get back up, and stand above the crowd.

    We are one.

    I believe it's about being depressed and believeing you're alone. And no matter much you believe it it's not always true, which, to me right now, seems like a loud of b.s! But I know in my heart- which sounds corny, I know- that it's not true. But just because I can't follow Adam's and my onw advice doesn't mean other people shouldn't. They're talking- or, rather, singing about prevailing and overcoming your aloneness, and standing with dignity when you are, metaphorically speaking, knocked down. And because you stand, you're really, ha, "standing above the crowd" meaning you are above other's opinions and insults and whatnot. It's an amazingly insperational song that would make any emogoth[there's not supposed to be a slash] make herself or himself feel better. Trust me, I would know.
    And, as a last note, I'd love to say that Three Days Grace is my favorite band and has been since they formed in 1997 when I was three. They got me intersted in music quite deeply, and I hope to perform with them someday, maybe even an original song of mine. Cause, hey, I'd love to put Broken Arrow on the map, along with myself. But dreams are dreams and reality is, ugh, reality, and it just came crashing down on me once again.
