It's only water In a stranger's tear Looks are deceptive But distinctions are clear A foreign body And a foreign mind Never welcome In the land of the blind You may look like we do Talk like we do But you know how it is
You're not one of us Not one of us No you're not one of us Not one of us Not one of us No you're not one of us
There's safety in numbers When you learn to divide How can we be in If there is no outside All shades of opinion Feed an open mind But your values are twisted Let us help you unwind You may look like we do Talk like we do -But you know how it is
You're not one of us Not one of us No you're not one of us

James from Glendale, AzI always felt this song would have been perfect on the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers because of the title and theme. The lyrics "You can look like we do, talk like we do, but you know how it is. You're Not One of Us!" always brought the Pod People to mind for me.
Amy from Toronto, OnThis song was recently covered by Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields for Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back/I'll Scratch Yours project. It appears as a B-side to "Book of Love" on 45s specially released for independent record stores.
Tarrah from Liverpool, EnglandI have never heard of this song, but I felt bad for Joe. So yeah and I am pretty much bored. so bye.
Joe from Allston, MaOne of my favorite songs on (3) aka Melting Face. I remember being a young hick kid visiting my friend at his fancy art high school outside of Boston and this was the album everyone was listening to. This song summed up the experience I had during that visit.
