What Are You?

This song is by David Gray and appears on the album Flesh (1994).

What are you, becoming?
What have you, become?
Once, you sang your own song, now your dancing to the same drum
What have you become?

And what is that, you're wearing?
Money's ugly confidence
You sacrificed, the poem of your imagination (Whoa)
For these pounds and pence
Me I take the cynics role, throw scorn on your empty mind
I've seen this monotonous world make dull, what used to shine
You lost interest, you lost your spine (Whoa)
That's fine fine fine

Bye Bye Bye Bye (Whoa)
When there's nothing left, on this plate your handed
You'll find yourself, running the gauntlet, of all these double standards
Its very thin ice, over which you're skating (Whoa)
And after this black winter, the thaw

So what are you?
Tell me, tell me what are you?
Now what have you... Become?
