Why do we surround ourselves with houses and big cars
Trying to make out we got it made
When nothing really belongs to us
We’re only passing through
We’re part of a maskerade
When you are standing on the water
Talking to the walls
Making so much matter
Out of no matter at all
Got to get a hold of ourselves
So easy to fall
Standing on the water
Talking to the walls
We act we look around us
We see trouble everywhere
Thieving money air that we breath
I know we would like to hang out
In the country for a while
There is something that you just can’t believe
When we’re standing on the water
Talking to the walls
Making so much matter
That’s of no matter at all
Got to get a hold of ourselves
So easy to fall
When we’re standing on the water
Talking to the walls
So many pictures looking at us through a smile
Making us want things we don’t need
So many people telling us just what to do
What we are and what we should be
When we’re standing on the water
Talking to the walls
Making so much matter
That’s of no matter at all
Got to get a hold of ourselves
So easy to fall
Standing on the water
Talking to the walls
Talking to the walls
Talking to the walls
