We Are What We Leave Behind

by Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes



A new single, heralding our hopes for a change in the new year and our hopes that acts of compassion in 2020 reverberate well into 2021 and beyond.


When the world is falling down around your ears
And there’s nothing left to comfort you, you’re drowning in your fears
If you’ve no one else for company but dark voices in your mind
All I know is
We are what we leave behind

There are those who prey on others in the night
Still a few can beat back darkness with a ribcage filled with light
While the world is full of monsters, too many to be outshined
All I know is
We are what we leave behind

What you’ve done shows more than anything you say
When the edifice is slowly stripped away

How we act in times of peril echoes on
And reverberates behind us long after we are gone
Troubled times don’t make a person, they show how we were defined
All I know is
We are what we leave behind
