"Leo" as written by and Ken/edwards Andrews....
Leo woke up in his bed again
Startled by all his familiar friends
Burnt out stubs confectionery wrappers bottles spent and empty
Leo felt a terror in the world
He sighs it's not so bad
And goes about his day as if nothings changed
He finds it so hard to explain the way he can't communicate
The feeling's there but he can't say why it's so hard to relate to you or anyone
Leo quickened his step toward his car
He broke into a sprint at twenty yards
As he guessed the dogs had come ripping into his arm for fun
Leo got away in his blue car

    General Commentthis song seems like it's about someone very misunderstood who cant comunicate to people because he doesnt feel confident of his own thoughts. he goes on through days not really living though, he denys what it is to be himself and to be human.

    General CommentI know this isn't what it's about, but this song always reminds me of the story of Leo Beuerman. (Google him.)

    General CommentAlso, this may be the song on Fantastic Planet that's least likely to be about drugs.

    General CommentThis certainly is about being an addict.

    Leo's got himself hooked (his room has become a litter filled smack den), doesn't want to admit it to himself and finds himself alienating himself from all around him. His paranoia gets the better of him at the end.

    General CommentSounds like Leo did something that he can't tell people? Also maybe the cops where looking for him, could be why he took off running with dogs chasing and biting him??? Just my guess.
