Together
Sia Lyrics


Ooh, together
We can take it higher

I can hear the thunder
Comin' from your mouth and I know my number's up
Give me some Stevie Wonder
Quick, put it on before we go under
I can see the lightning
Coming from your ears, yeah, I see you're frightened
I can see The Lion Sleeps Tonight in the tears you're crying

Ooh
Can't love me unless you love you too
Treat yourself like nothin' but a fool
Can't love me unless you love you too
Love you too

Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher

I can see the rainbow
Coming from your heart and it's all okay so
Come now, see you're my angel
Say "Bye" to the past, "Hello" to tomorrow

Ooh
Can't love me unless you love you too
Treat yourself like nothin' but a fool
Can't love me unless you love you too
Love you too

Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher

I want love, I wanna give it
I want love, please deliver it
I want love, I wanna give it
I want love, please deliver it
I want love, I wanna give it
I want love, please deliver it
I want love, I wanna give it
I want love, please deliver it

Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Come now, set the past on fire
Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love
Together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher

Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher
Ooh, together, we can take it higher

As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming.

Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it.

To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”.

The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares...

I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

That is not how you should treat someone who is having a meltdown. Pinning them down like a criminal? If anything, that’s probably make the meltdown worse! I could understand a bear hug, because some autistic people need pressure to feel comfort. But not this...

This film has got to be the worst portrayal of autism I’ve ever seen.
Please don’t support this. It won’t do the autistic community any good...

And for those of you saying that Sia did her best... No... Sia did not do her best. Three years of research just isn’t enough to understand the complexity of what she is trying to portray. And the fact she used Maddie instead of the original actress really says something.

There could’ve been accommodations set for the girl to help her cope while being on set, but Sia decided that it was just to hard, so she used her usual star Maddie. She even admitted that it was nepotism.

Sia doesn’t give a shit about the autistic community. All this is, is just to promote her new album while trying to gain some more money while doing so. Sickening...

Also, the fact that this horrific film got a GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION is just...not right.

Sai apologized to the autistic community. And then deleted her Twitter right after: https://deadline.com/2021/02/sia-sorry-autism-music-golden-globes-1234687236/amp/

And yes, I do believe that Autism Speaks had something to do with this film, despite denying it in this tweet: https://twitter.com/autismspeaks/status/1329895705679425541?s=21

It has come to my attention that there could’ve possibly not have been an autistic actress to begin with. Since Sia admitted that the role of Music was specifically for Maddie herself. This makes the situation much worse because it was never about the autistic community at all... it was all about Sia’s music and her super star Maddie.

EFor those wondering, “Huh... didn’t Sia already release a trailer for this a while back? What happened to it?”

Well, it got unlisted. But not to worry! I have the link for you all right here.

This is like making a movie for blind people, but with no sound

GW Archive

@الأشقاء العطواني - El Atwani siblings If you make a film for blind people, you gotta at least have sound. If your film doesnt have sound, how would blind people even enjoy your film?

Same case with Sia's film. She wanted to make a film for autistics, but put epileptic lights in it which may cause sensitivity or even seizures to autistics. If the goal of the film is to make us feel "seen", why must it have things that would make us not watch it?

Wdym?

@Vegeta Oujisama Google audio descriptions

@Nicole Rose-Songbird That's the point. A blind person can only hear a movie. So making a movie with no sound would be impossible for a blind person to experience.
