"Doing the Right Thing" as written by Elena Veronica Tonra and Igor Alexandre Haefeli....
And they're making children
And they're making love
With their old excuses
We are built for reproduction
But I find it soothing
When I am confined
I'm just fearing one day soon
I'll lose my mind

Then I'll lose my children
Then I'll lose my love
Then I'll sit in silence
Let the pictures soak
Out of televisions
Float across the room
Whisper into one ear
And out the other one

Then I'll take my clothes off
And I'll walk around
Because it's so nice outside
And I like the way the sun feels
And when it's dark
I'll call out in the night for my mother
But she isn't coming back for me
'Cause she's already gone
But you will not tell me that
'Cause you know it hurts me every time you say it
And you know you're doing the right thing
You must know you're doing the right thing

I have lost my children
I have lost my love
I just sit in silence
Let the pictures soak
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions

And they're making children
Everyone's in love
I just sit in silence
Let the pictures soak

    My InterpretationWell, the video to it makes it sound as if the song is about an elderly person with dementia or alzheimers. They are slowly losing themselves and those around them they love as they can't remember who those people are anymore.
    But not going on the video, to me its about someone who is disillusioned with life. If you think about it, all we really do in life is get a job, get married, reproduce, and die. I think its about someone who is not buying in to all that, and is depressed by it.
