Sometimes when I look around, I ask myself, 'What have we become?'

lyrics

Filipinos what have we become
Don't you know that we are one

I used to see a painting
The rarest one that I've seen
Where people carried a small house
Made of bamboo and palm tree leaves
We call it Bayanihan
The brotherhood of all men
We were a great example
To every man, woman, and child

But today I just can't see
The painting that I used to see
Where are the people who carried our brotherhood
Wish they could come again

Filipinos what have we become
Don't you know that we are one

I used to read a story
About our hospitality
When people came to our house
We treated them as family
We offered seats to strangers
To the ladies and the elders
We helped them cross the streets
If they can't make it on their own

But today I just can't see
The story that I used to read
Where are the people who carried our brotherhood
Wish they would come again

We are the people of the sun
We rise when we fall
And help those who can't make it on their own
Because we are one
Filipinos of the world

The people of the sun
We rise for everyone
Help those who can't make it on their own
Because we are one
Filipinos of the world

about

Andy Calope Dakbayan Sa Sugbu, Philippines

Who are you?
I am a struggling musician.

What is a struggling musician?
In simple terms, it's the opposite of big-name artists. Usually, a struggling musician has a day job that he hates and when night falls, he grab his guitar and hop around the city bars to play a tune or two in exchange for a free dinner. It's close to frustration.
