Self-indulgent post

        John Lennon

“Isolation” off of his first solo record. Actually written about him and Yoko, but some of the lines seem to fit US don’t you think?

People say we got it made
Don’t they know we’re so afraid?
We’re afraid to be alone
Everybody got to have a home

Just a boy and a little girl
Trying to change the whole wide world
The world is just a little town
Everybody trying to put us down

I don’t expect you to understand
After you’ve caused so much pain
But then again, you’re not to blame
You’re just a human, a victim of the insane

We’re afraid of everyone
Afraid of the sun
The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years

I like the line, “A victim of the insane”. I don’t mean people here. I mean going out in the world every day. Traffic, long lines in stores, parks, work, so-called normal people. etc


I like this line “We’re afraid of everyone, afraid of the sun”. As a shy , introverted person sometimes “Saying hello to a neighbor” costs me so much effort. I am afraid of those unknown people. This song speaks of my mind.
