"We are the Crystal Gems" is a song first sung by Steven in the Pilot episode. It is the opening theme song of the series. Steven describes it as the song that he will sing every time they go on adventures and battle enemies.

Lyrics

We are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!

Extended Versions

A full version of the song was heard in the Pilot. It adds the following before the lyrics reproduced above:

If you're evil and you're on the rise
You can count on the four of us taking you down
'Cause we're good and evil never beats us
We'll win the fight and then go out for pizzas

At the "Gallery Nucleus Steven Universe/Adventure Time" art show in August 2014, Rebecca Sugar played and sang an extended version of the song.

"Lala-lala-lala-lala-la
Lala-la-lala-Lala-lala-lala
Lala-la-lala-la-Lala-La-la
Lala-lala-Lala-la-La-lala-la!"
If you could only know
What we really are
"Lala-la-la-la
La-la-la-lala"
We were amazed to find
Your beauty and your worth
We will protect your kind
We will protect your Earth
We will protect your Earth
We are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!

The full lyrics were revealed in a clip at San Diego Comic Con 2015 at the joint Adventure Time/Steven Universe panel.

The full version of the theme, as played at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con panel, is as follows:

[Steven] If you're evil and you're on the rise
You can count on the four of us taking you down
'Cause we're good and evil never beats us
We'll win the fight and then go out for pizzas
We are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, and Steven!
[Pearl] If you could only know, what we really are
When we arrived on Earth, from out beyond your star
We were amazed to find, your beauty and your worth
And we will protect your kind,
And we will protect your Earth
And we will protect your Earth,
And we will protect you!
[Garnet] I will fight for the place where I'm free!
To live together and exist as me!
[Pearl] I will fight in the name of Rose Quartz!
And everything that she believed in!
[Amethyst] I will fight for the world I was made in!
The Earth is everything I've ever known!
[Steven] I will fight to be everything that everybody wants me to be when I'm grown!
[The Crystal Gems] The odds are against us, this won't be easy,
but we're not going to do it alone!
We are the Crystal Gems!
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!

Trivia

  • This is the first song that was ever sung in the series.
  • Steven eating a hot dog at the end of the original theme song could be a reference to his dad's phrase "If every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs!"
  • At the start of the intro version of the song, the Crystal Gems' gems glow.
  • In the main series, the song was sung by all of the Crystal Gems, while Steven alone sang the song in the Pilot.
  • The melody of this song has been sampled in several of other tracks, such as "Steven's Shield" and "Fight, Flight, or Love".
  • Starting with "Sworn to the Sword", the intro has been changed; the song is more upbeat, the scenes are different, and the Gems are in their post-regeneration forms.
    • In the new intro, Connie can be seen with Rose's Sword, Jamie can be seen sitting on a beach, Onion can be seen on the roof of the Big Donut, and the town seems more lively in general.
    • Greg is seen laying on Lion playing an electric guitar, which is the same guitar he plays in "We Need to Talk" and "Story for Steven".
    • Steven and the Crystal Gems can be seen on a Warp Pad in space, with Earth and the Moon in the background.
    • Steven interrupts by singing the word that comes after "Crystal".
  • At the Adventure Time/Steven Universe panel at San Diego Comic Con 2015, an extended version of the song's lyrics were released in a video featuring a young Steven singing, as well as other Crystal Gems.
    • It follows a similar pattern the the extended opening from the pilot for the first scene, such as Garnet starting and afterwards the rest of the gems clapping along to Steven playing the song on his ukulele.
    • In this version, Greg sings the words "believe in" towards the end of the song.
    • It also revealed that the song was written, as far as in-universe canon goes, by a young Steven just having learned to play the ukulele prior to making the move from his dad's van to moving in with the Crystal Gems.
    • An earlier form of Amethyst is seen earlier in the video when Steven was young. She wears a purple sweater similar to the one seen in the Pilot. After the house was completed, Amethyst is seen in her debut form in a purple tank.
    • In the video presented, a shadow of Yellow Diamond can be seen alongside Homeworld gems Peridot, Jasper and Lapis Lazuli.
    • A montage of various clips from previous episodes were shown as Steven and the Crystal Gems run along the beach, reminiscent of the first opening sequence. These clips include (in order of appearance):
  • The extended version shown at the Adventure Time/Steven Universe panel is the first time any Homeworld Gems are shown in the theme or intro.
