"Conversation" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
Oh it's so easy
When parts take over
My conversation
Is nothing more than lies

You're just the viewer
So cold and distant
I've no intentions
Of saying I love you

My conversation

We are not gods
We are not men
We are not making claims
We are only boys

You are not strong
You are not force
You are not regular
You are just wrong

There are no faces
This is my complex
You are my picture
I call you 'mirrors'

These are not my tears
Not my reflection
Am I a photo?
I can't remember

My conversation

    General CommentThis song is about Numan's outlook on fame. He wrote and recorded it around the same time his album Replicas was taking off.

    So cold and distant
    I’ve no intentions
    Of saying I love you"
    Those lyrics are about how he will only go so far in his relationship with his fans.

    These were lyrics that made me fall in love with Numan.

    General Commentmr longview has it right. "we are not gods" How did conversation come into this, though? Maybe it was written to one fan in specific "you are just wrong"
