"Alone" by: Andrew Neil, Feb 2015

I don't belong any more
I never did I never did I never did
This King Kong wanted no war
and So I hid so I hid so I Hid
Drugs I'm on make me sore
life of fables life of fables
right and wrong rich and poor
stupid labels stupid labels

Will someone let me know
which way to go
The only thing I know
is that we are all alone
we are all alone
we are all alone
