We're Forgiven

Album: Camino Palmero (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, lead singer Alex Band expresses feelings about the homeless, the hurt and the poor. He's saying that it's not forgivable to just ignore them and not help them. He also comments that God's caused all this. It could be anger at God or a sense of helplessness. Says Alex: "You can't help seeing all these homeless people in LA and so many people pass them by and don't care and it's not right." >>
