Why do we surround ourselves with houses and big cars
And try to make out, we got it made
When nothing really belongs to us
We're only passing through
We're part of a mascaraed

[Chorus]
When we're standing on the water talking to the wall
Making so much matter up, theres no matter at all
Got to get a hold of ourselves so easy to fall

Standing on the water talking to the wall
Yet we look around us we see trouble everywhere
Living off the air that we breathe
I know we like to hang out, in the country for a while
Theres something that you just cant believe

[Chorus]

When we're standing on the water talking to the wall
So many pictures looking at us through a smile
Making us one thing we don't need
So many people telling us just what to do
What we are, and what we should be

[Chorus]

When we're standing on teh water talking to the wall
Talking to the wall, talking to the wall
