"Don't Get Involved" as written by and Steven Grant/burns Ludwin....
I walk on my own
Head down on the way home
Gangs trying to get me
They showed it on TV
I hide in my room
It's something to do
Don’t bust me out of my territory

Don't get involved
Don't get involved

I'm sat on a fence
I'm sat on the sharp end
Start handing me razors
I'll help out the painters
I don't want to die
But its Lord Of The Flies
Don't try to crack me out of my shell

Don't get involved
Don't get involved
I feel dissolved
Let's stay unsolved

Where oh where? Where do I belong?
Where oh where? Where did I go wrong?

I'll walk on my own
Head down on the way home
Gangs trying to get me
They want me on TV

Just get on the bus
And don't make a fuss
Don't try to strip me out my life

Don't get involved
Don't get involved
Don't get involved
I feel dissolved
Let's stay unsolved

Where oh where? Where do I belong?
Where oh where? Where did I go wrong?
Where of where? Where do I belong?
Where oh where? where did I go wrong?

    General CommentIt's about suicide and depression.

    "Start handing me razors/I'll help out the painters"- it's about self-harm, as in, her blood will stain if you give her razors to cut herself with.

    "Gangs trying to get me/They want me on TV/Just get on the bus/Don't make a fuss"- I'm not sure, but it sounds to me like rape? As in, street gangs that would rape and/or kidnap her, thus making a news story which gets on TV, and how she's given up caring about what happens to her.

    "Don't get involved"- she doesn't want any help and she doesn't think she can get out of the rut.

    A pretty dark song compared to her other stuff, but not too meaningful. I think it was just to try and up her dwindling poser-goth image, but she's plain ol' pop to me! I still love her though.
