A short 2 minute but powerful song that deals with a struggle with mental illness....feelings of not belonging....drugs that hurt and how mental illness can hit anyone...rich or poor. The last line deals with stigma "stupid labels stupid labels". Very painful, to the point and truthful song. Written and recorded in his hospital room.

Lyrics

"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
