"We Are Glass" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
We are young we can break
Watch us fall
We can take some train
Down to the sea
We are glass, we are glass
We are real you can touch
Just for now
And then say
'Hey you, which way is down'
We are glass, we are glass

We are strong we run though
We have time
And to you I'm just
One of those boys
We are glass, we are glass
We are cold
We're not supposed to cry
But it's all just a thought
So here am I
We are glass, we are glass

They run fast
Impressions of the floors inviting
Stay with me, stay with me
They run past
With telephones they scream
Well would you turn all this down
Turn all this down

You are replaced you are you
And our dreams are real
And dreams are all we need
We are glass, we are glass

We slip down
And old eyes don't cry for me
'Cause I doubt I'm and I doubt you
And never never going to doubt
We are glass, we are glass

They run fast
Impressions of the floors inviting
Stay with me, stay with me
They run past
With telephones they scream
Well would you turn all this down
Turn all this down

    General CommentOh. It is 'you are you'! I just listened to the live version on the Skin Mechanic CD, and you can clearly hear him say 'you'.

    General CommentIsn't it 'you are replaced, you are used'? It can be hard to tell sometimes, Numan's voice is... unique.

    General CommentI think it's about how fragile people are.

    "We are young
    We can break
    Watch us fall..."

    What Gary is trying to say is all people are fragile. If you try hard enough you can make them 'break'.
