We are Earthlings is a manifestation of diversity, created by five musicians from five continents. Rather than providing a singular statement, this song presents a playful exploration of our inter-connected perspectives. Even the seemingly straightforward lyric ‘we play with fire’ can be interpreted as threatening or empowering depending on the context. We are complex creatures, and every one of us lives the full spectrum of emotions. As the song progresses, we move from minor to major melodies, and despair is replaced by hope.
