Written by accomplished composer Keith Power for the popular video game Warframe. Released on July 7th 2018, this song features themes common to work songs.

The song was performed by TLJ during their Christmas livestream, JD appears to be a big fan of the track, and recently released an mp3 where he layered his own voice for the chorus as a gift to the discord community.

Factoids

It debuted at a convention for Warframe called Tennocon in Ontario, Canada. Warframe developer Digital Extremes announced a content update set on a terraformed colony of Venus called Fortuna. The introduction to Fortuna was accompanied by a video performance for We All Lift Together, which showcased the colony and its inhabitants as they work beneath the surface. The fictional colony is somewhat of a debtors prison, populated by those whose debts to the "Corpus merchant cult" have become too high.

Lyrics

These lyrics are based on the version performed by the Longest Johns in their livestream, the original lyrics can be found here.

Cold, the air and water flowing.
Hard, the land we call our home.
Push, to keep the dark from coming,
Feel, the weight of what we owe.

This, the song of sons and daughters,
Hide the heart of who we are.
Making peace to build our future,
Strong, united, working 'till we fall.

{Chorus}
And we all lift, and we're all adrift together,
Together,
Through the cold mist, til we're lifeless together,
Together,

(Cold) the air and water flowing.
(Hard) the land we call our home.
(Push) to keep the dark from coming,
(Feel) the weight of what we owe.

(This) the song of sons and daughters,
(Hide) the heart of who we are.
(Making) peace to build our future,
(Strong) united, working 'till we fall.

(Cold) the air and water flowing.
(Hard) the land we call our home.
(Push) to keep the dark from coming,
(Feel) the weight of what we owe.

(This) the song of sons and daughters,
(Hide) the heart of who we are.
(Making) peace to build our future,
(Strong) united, working 'till we fall.

{Chorus}
