"Earth Is the Loneliest Planet" as written by Steven Morrissey and Gustavo Adolfo Jr Manzur....
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Day after day you say one day, one day
Day after day you say one day, one day

But you're in the wrong place, and you've got the wrong face
And humans are not really very humane
And earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Live with a loneliness that no one else knows

Time after time you say next time, next time
Time after time you say next time, next time
But you failed as a woman, and you lose as a man
We do what we can
And earth is the cruelest place you will never understand

But you're in the wrong skin
And the skin that you're in says
Oh, let it begin
And earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Day after day you say one day, one day
Day after day you say one day, one day

But there's always a reason why you're refused
They always blame you, you, you
And there is nothing anyone can do

    General CommentI noticed this only had one comment, so I thought I'd have a look. As I scrolled down and saw the comment I was bloody annoyed. Why, I ask, do people feel it necessary to say every song, interview and word by Morrissey is to do with his homosexuality? I also find it quite funny. Why? Because it seems that people have no intelligence whatsoever to think of anything different. Just because many have claimed Morrissey is gay, it doesn't it is true (it isn't, he is bisexual) and even if he was, why would every song be about it? Somebody's sexuality doesn't define them and the fact that people think being homosexual or bisexual defines a person is homophobic and the same for bisexuality (I'm awfully sorry, I don't know the term for going against bisexuality). If you truly think a song is about homosexuality then I have no problem with it, as I think one or two songs imply this, but please leave if you are a idiot and can't think of anything else in your mini-school mind.
    Katherine.

    My InterpretationI think it's about feeling lonely because no one accepts you for who you are.

    "And humans are not really very humane". Humans only accept others if they are exactly how they "should" be.

    "And earth is the cruelest place you will never understand". People get frozen out of groups, beaten up, even stoned to death for not following the social rules.

    "But you failed as a woman, and you lose as a man". No matter how you act, you don't fit in as either a male or female.
