Nico Vega - We Are The Art Lyrics




We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to

We scrape by, scrape by, scrape by
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired
And we still try, still try, still try
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired

Bite down check it out, yes it is
A fight now for music and music is,
Afraid how we never really knew we could
Break down living our dreams.

Stand up for what is beautiful,
Give it up for the ones that try.
Oh the art is the reason that we came here,
Take a bow together we fight.

We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to

We scrape by, scrape by, scrape by
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired
And we still try, still try, still try
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired

Make plans then take it all back
From the soup pan, put it in your mouth and
Smack your hands, stomp to the sound of
The music and we're living our dreams

Stand up for what is beautiful,
Give it up for the ones that try.
Oh the art is the reason that we came here,
Take a bow together we fight. and

We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to

We scrape by, scrape by, scrape by
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired
And we still try, still try, still try
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired

I call out the reasons why I can't take it
And watch the seasons change and ease my age
I call out the reasons why I can't take it
And watch the seasons change and ease my age

We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to

We scrape by, scrape by, scrape by
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired
And we still try, still try, still try
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired

We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to
We are the art and we do it cause we ought to

We scrape by, scrape by, scrape by
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired
And we still try, still try, still try
But we're so tired, so tired, so tired

Nico Vega We Are The Art Comments
  1. Pareidolia

    Wow so many people dislike this beautiful song in the comments.

  2. SkullKnightx115

    Can anyone tell me what Aja says in the chorus? I have listened to this song so much and still I don't know.

  3. RB Fyller

    I didn't really get the meaning of the video, but I dug the song.

  4. Greg Johnson

    Crack on some headphones, pull up the lyrics on SongMeanings. net and crank it. Your opinion will likely change.

  5. Greg Johnson

    It's almost like you understand the meaning of the lyrics in this song as evidenced by this post of yours.

  6. Greg Johnson

    Right on! Did anyone check out the actual lyrics to this song? The message of this song directly contradicts the moronic chatter on here.

  7. Astral Flux

    Beautiful! We <3 you guys!!!

  8. Sarah

    If you really listen, there's a lot of their...signature sound in the new album.

  9. SannaKore

    I must admit that I was taken aback at first, not what I'm used to; the chorus is very poppy and the verse is kinda funky! But, when the breakdown happened and Aja started belting her beautiful voice, I was hooked! Great job guys!! ^_^

  10. ImbecilicMoron

    AHH BABIES!

  11. Queen Caveat

    FAREWEATHER FAN ALERT! It's disgusting reading all this crap. Everyone has their 'opinion' so yeah, you don't have to like it. You can say you're not into the sound BUT to say "they're trying to cash in"!! That's moronic You don't know this band, you don't know their sacrifices and hardships.. They aren't muse, they are a band on the rise dedicating their lives to their craft. They only wanted to show you something personal and you shit on it.. Nico Vega doesn't need any fareweather fans

  12. revengetherevengful

    IMAGINE DRAGON BABIES!!!!!!! Ya so excited

  13. Sophie Bos

    The verses are really great! But the chorus doesn't fit with them, in my opinion... Can't wait to hear the other songs though!

  14. Denny Utter

    This is what artists do. Explore, create, take chances. If you're looking for the sound of their debut album, then listen to IT. Very nice. This is great and I can't wait to hear the new album.

  15. ndtx2012

    Like many of you I expected something different. I was a little disappointed but it has grown on me a bit. Still, not what I expected. As a fan since '09, I'm not writing off NV because of one song. With songs like "Lucky One," "Dance," and "Protest Song" on the new album I doubt we have anything to worry about.

  16. masumi333

    nico good!!!

  17. Nico Vega

    Sorry, we like it. No need to be scared tho... promise ;)

  18. Anonymus

    If that's all creativity that came to your minds in the past few years then I'm actually scared about the release of an album of a band that had a great album I listened hundreds of times. Sorry, but this is at best annoying.

  19. earphoria

    can't wait to see this live! we are the art!

  20. abbabbabb

    While I agree that evolution and change are necessary for any band to survive and continue making good music, this doesn't sound so much like change and evolution; it sounds like Muse or any other band that ran out of ideas and just jumped to another genre to cash in.

  21. xxLAILAxxLukkzxx

    Fan since 08 appreciated a strong female vocal..this is the pits though. Disappointing at the very least

  22. Paul Reynolds

    Love it!! Absolutely brilliant. To those who dislike it, I'd argue that evolution and experimentation with their sound is necessary to keep things fresh. Don't hate change. I'm sure if their sound was always the same you'd just get bored.

  23. Varg Forseth

    TRASH

  24. Trail Mcfarland

    I really enjoyed the 1st album, hope this isn't an indication of what's to come. I'll stay posted..

  25. FollowersofDamu

    Well I guess everyone has to make money at some point ehh?

  26. Andrew Hakim

    Quite disappointing. What happened to being raw? To being a truly unique ROCK group? Hoping this isn't the new sound for whole album.

  27. Ayesha Ahmed

    Verses are alright but chorus is freaking terrible!

  28. EL TOPO

    fucking awful bullshit.

  29. Sophie Bos

    Bring back the beast of america!! Too much synth, you guys we're perfect at making raw rock n roll! And congrats to Aja and Dan!!!

  30. launderground

    we love nico vega.

  31. thawthepast

    cool...

  32. Peter Brady

    I don't know...this is pretty weak on first listen. Might grow on me but....eh.

  33. Megan Foley

    There is nothing trendy, poppy, or meaningless about this .....oh wait your name is JesusChristHasAIDS.....figures.

  34. Margherita Padovani

    Chemérdah

  35. Pieter Steyn

    Why is this: "Recommended for you"?? WTF youtube.

  36. suzama54

    do not want

  37. R & D

    i liked the funky parts, could live without the chorus ... maybe it just reminds me of philosophy 100 funk that..

  38. Patrick Sandoval

    Funky sound.....Nico Vega's music always has a great message.....love it.

  39. Павлик Старчиков
