"Alone" as written by Colin Newman...
Alone, with too much generosity.
A theater mask of hostility attracts
Assaults occur, infrequently
And those who come, to conquer

Need strength
But damage accumulates
Still moving him to tears

Retain a sense of humor.
Retain a sense of humor.
Retain a sense of humor.
Retain a sense of humor

    General CommentThis Mortal Coil are horribly underappreciated. Gorgeous cover; even more powerful than the original, I think.
