What am I doing in a place like this
When it's painfully clear that my face don't fit?
What am I doing acting Identikit
When all I want to do is to be the opposite?

Why am I, why are you?
Who's pretending just who's foolin'?
Who do we go our way
Or join in their merry queue?

What are we doing in the pouring rain?
Walkin' hand in hand, I gotta be out of my brain
What are we doing is it all for show
Are we drifting along, goin' along with the flow?

I don't know, I wish I knew
Is it me or you who's foolin'?
What a bore, where's the door
Are we just for decoration?

What am I doing to you?
What are you doing to me too?
What are they doing to us?
Someone help me, tell me truly

What are we doing in a place like this
Tryin' to prove to the world that we really exist
Standing around with all the egotists
Stickin' out like a zit knickers all in a twist

Why are we? I don't know
Are we merely going with the flow?
To prove, who we know
Or drifting along acting a part in a show?

Why am I going through this?
Why are you going through this too?
What are they doing to us?
Someone help me, tell me truly

What are we doing?
What are we doing?
What are we doing?
What are we doing?

So do we go our own way
Or do we join their merry queue?
Pretending it's okay
Them or us, who's foolin' who?

Why are we standing in the acid rain
Watchin' industrial waste, tricklin' down the drain?
What are we doin' under the nuclear glow
What we all gonna do, where we all gonna go?

What are we doing?
What are we doing?
