"Soul In Isolation" as written by and Mark/fielding Burgess....
Soul in isolation
I can hear you breathing down the hall
Soul in isolation
I can hear you whisper through the walls
And if i had a mind to now
I could call to you
Or i could simply shut you out
No more,would you cry,cry,cry

I give you my time to kill
But you'll never never break my will
Or i could sink a sleeping pill
And in the morning could be sleeping still
But,most of you are much to ill
Oh, way beyond a surgeons skill
In bondage to a dollar bill
What more can you buy,buy,buy

Oh when you think of it,when you think of it
We're all souls in isolation
Alive in here,I'm alive in here
I'm alive in here
Oh, when you think of ,when you think of it
Try here
A word in your ear
Go back to the trees

Big bad giant standing tall
Crushing all the creatures great and small
I'd like to see this giant fall
When will it come?
Words that rattle round my head
Struck like lightning,someone said
Diamond bullet,in the head
Right in the brain
Are they right in the brain?

Will i see the jailers face?
Did my mother lead my place?
Will i live to see his face?
Or will another come to take my place?
In total isolation
Surrounded by fears
Too many clowns ,too many tears
Isolation
Surrounded by crowds
In another world,head in the clouds!
I'm alive in here, i scream!
But you still can't hear
I'm alive, turn on the light

Oh when you think of it,when you think of it
We're all souls in isolation
Alive in here,I'm alive in here
I'm alive in here
Oh,when you think of it
Souls in isolation
We're always searching for something
Searching
Dear,dear,dead days i'm lo

    General Commentmightypotato is right. Here's what Mark says:

    "The original idea was taken from one of the first things we did together, demoed but never actually finished, entitled 'Dear Dead Days'. We re-worked it in rehearsals and came up with this. I start singing the original lines at the end of the song. We were struggling to kick start the song following the intro when John came up with the stabs, which I absolutely love. The lyrical idea was inspired by one of my all time favourite books 'Star Rover' by Jack London, which at that time I'd never heard of. It was the Producer Dave M Allen that gave it to me."
