"All Alone" as written by Christopher Hillman and Rick Roberts....
Slim lined sheik faced
Angel of the night
In the graveyard of the night
New york witch in the dungeon
Of the day
I'm trying to write my novel
All you do is play

Baby boomerang

Mice pie dog-eye
Eagle on the wind
I'm searching through this garbage
Looking for a friend
Your uncle with an alligator
Chained to his leg
Dangles you your freedom
Then he offers you his bed

It seems to me to dream
Is something too wild
In Max's Kansas city
You a belladonna child
Riding on the highways
On the gateways to the south
You're talking with your boots
And you're walking with your mouth

Baby boomerang baby boomerang
You never spike a person
But you always bang the whole gang

Thank you ma'am

    General CommentThis one I believe is about Marc naturally doing what he does best (rocking), and still not having anyone to cheer for him. Yet someone else, such as "Michael Mouse" goes around humoring and enticing the crowd by giving them whatever they want from him so they go for him. Basically about those other fake musicians I believe who really have no talent or love for their music but do what they think will give them sales.
