We are all together alone, and these are just wishes and I
Am just dreaming. If I ever grow up I will take care of the old and
All the babies that have no one. You might think I give myself
Too much credit but I am just dreaming. 'Cause not much is sacred,
There's not really much to do here any more. I don't feel like you said,
I walk the earth my darling but I never feel at home and we all
Say I will change tomorrow. I will change it all tomorrow. I will
Assure all of the husbands who are guilty and the wives who feel
Useless. I will nurse all of the black and blue babies with their
Unhappy parents who had unhappy parents. I will assure all of the
Boys who feel awkward and the girls who feel clumsy. I will walk
Alongside the old man who feels so alone as everyone rushes by him.
You might think I give myself too much credit but I am juts dreaming.
I don't feel like you said, I walk the earth my darling but I never
Feel at home, and we all say I will change tomorrow.

    General CommentA nice ambiguity in the first line. Are they saying "we are altogether alone", i.e. we are all hopelessly alienated, or "we are all together, alone", i.e. our very sense of alienation gives us something in common?

    The song comes across to me as the cry of a desperate idealist. She can see what she's up against, but she still wants to try to make the world better, no matter how hopeless it seems.

    My favourite song of theirs.
