"25 or 6 to 4/Where Do We Go from Here"
"Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"

"Where Do We Go from Here" is a song from the American rock band Chicago's second studio album, Chicago II (1970). It was released as the B-side to the single "25 or 6 to 4", one of the leading songs off of the record. With that single, it went to number four on the Pop Singles chart in June 1970.

The song was also the very first musical composition from bassist Peter Cetera, who was by this time contributing more than on the debut album released the year before. The song deals with how life is short, and that if you look around you can see that people need to embrace each other with love all the time, and not just when the country is at an all-time low (hence the Vietnam War). The title line is taken from a TV reporter's comment during the broadcast of the 1969 moon landing—a historically positive event in stark contrast to the social upheavel on Earth at the time.

A live performance of the song can be found on their 1971 Chicago at Carnegie Hall album.
