Who am I
I don’t know
I have no idea
When my friends look at me
I wonder who they think they’re seeing
Search me layer by layer
But inside I’m afraid you’ll find thin air

Yeah yes, guess again
Who we might be underneath this skin

What makes me tick? How should I know
I’ve been trained like a monkey
The bell rings and I start to jones like a junkie
What turns me on? I wish I knew
Wish I could tell the real thing
My honest desire from my conditioning

Touch me now, now touch me again
I want to feel something real coming through this skin

I’ve been boxing with my shadow
Winded and tagged
I can’t punch my way out of a paper bag
It’s as thick as you think
Thin as the reasoning you bought
I’m a mummy wrapped in a gauze of my own thoughts

And I want to know who I’d be
If I never had bathed
In the static, the snow, and the radio wave
The flickering image, the pandering thought
That’s been passed off and on
To be the blueprint of God

Hey yes, guess again
Who we could be if we could shed this skin

    General Commentwow , deep thoughts. would be be better people is not for the bad stuff around us?

    In the static, the snow, and the radio wave
    The flickering image, the pandering thought.

    refers to TV, I think, and how it aims for the lowest common denominator.
