"Nothing Touches Me" as written by and Thomas Edward/greenwood Yorke....
Nothing touches me, man
These walls are three feet thick
Wouldn't take one of them
Little drills to get through it

I try to make her listen
When I turn away she's split
I try to make her listen
When I turn away she's split
She went

Nothing touches me
Nothing touches me now
Nothing touches me, man
No matter how you split

Sticks and stones can get through bones
So I've given up looking out of it

I try to make her listen
When I turn away she's split
I try to make her listen
When I turn away she's split
She went

Nothing touches me now
Nothing touches me now
Nothing touches me now
Nothing touches me now

Laugh if you can, if you can, if you can, at me now
Laugh if you can, if you can, if you can, at me now
Laugh if you can, if you can, if you can, at me now
Laugh if you can, if you can, if you can, at me now

    General CommentThere is only 1 version of this song. This is one of the earliest tracks from the On a Friday days, this song appears only on the Manic Hedgehog cassette, though it is fairly easy to obtain on the tape-trade market. Thom described the composition in an early interview: "It's based on an artist who was imprisoned for abusing children and spent the rest of his life in a cell, painting, but the song is about isolating yourself so much that one day you realize you haven't got any friends anymore and no one talks to you." The painter to whom Thom is referring was also the inspiration for the computer art he created at Exeter.
