Looking Inwardly

This song is by The Chameleons and appears on the album What Does Anything Mean? Basically (1985).

I delve into myself ceaselessly
Oh, but I rarely see what I want to see
Embracing the future, forgetting the past
Loves, loss and misfortune. The chaos and the crass
Crass

I'm wary of you, but you're oblivious to me
I'm chained to your ego, but there isn't a key
I play with emotions, but never my own
Don't you recognise me? Try looking inwardly

Ah, but you won't see me

Such a strange fascination as I wallow in waste
That such a trivial victory can put a smile on your face
Using me as the scapegoat for what you want to believe
So I'll just bow out politely and tip my cap as I leave

Ah comme ci, comme ca, comme ci

My eyes are wide open, yours are closed. It's time you realised I'm a part of you

Look inwardly. Don't bleed for me
Look inwardly. Don't bleed for me (look to yourself)
Look inwardly (look to yourself)
Look inwardly. Don't bleed for me (look to yourself)
Look inwardly. Don't bleed for me (look to yourself)
Look inwardly. Don't bleed for me (look to yourself)
(Look to yourself)
