"Lonely As Can Be" as written by and Lisa/nystrom Milberg....
There he goes again following idle hands
Begging them to lead him astray
As far as they may.

You're lonely as can be
Known as a friend of me
There he goes again
And then he's gone again

While I follow them around, follow them around
Cause I never really tried
Inside of me a fear will grow
Holding hands with demands
You're lonely as can be
Known as a friend of me
There he goes again
And then he's gone again

    General CommentMy favourite Concretes song.

    A couple of minor lyrical differences, but here's my interpretation:

    It's an overview of a friend, who is indeed, lonely. The first verse explaining how his social anxiety overcomes him, so desperately he tries his best to escape away from people. He obviously succeeds, as the narrator explains he is known as nothing other than a friend of theirs.

    The "There he goes again/Then he's gone again" lines are evidence of that, as he merely walks to and fro with no interaction.

    Here's where the lyrical differences appear, I believe the second verse to be from the lonely persons point of view, possibly a quote, so it would be:

    "Well I followed them around
    'cos I, I never really tried,
    inside of me a fear will grow,
    holding hands with demons."

    A text-book tag-along, never really trying, infact probably doing the opposite, to make an impression and be noticed. So introverted that any attempt to talk caused those fears and demons to rise, so he remained quiet.

    Therefore he is as lonely as can be.
