"Primitive Notion" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....

It doesn't take a lot to confuse me
I'm not aware of the passing of time
And I'd like to say to those who accuse me
Could you do it while you looked in my eye

If you hold on primitive notion
And if you think you'd like to try
You can drink this magic potion
And you can do it 'til the day that you the day that you die

I've done it before and I'll do it again
Charged with a life that'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to feel like it did at the start

I'm doing my best to confound you
Your behaviour is so volatile
Not even a zoo would impound you
Don't look at me with your criticle smile

Well I've been driving in the wrong gear
It's been a long and lonely ride
It's been winter for a whole year
But you couldn't hurt me if you tried

I've done it before and I'll do it again
Charged with a life that'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to be like it was at the start

I've done it before and I'll do it again
Charged with a life that'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to feel like it did at the start

I've got a message that I need to send
It's coming to you straight from a friend
I wanted to see what's inside my heart
I wanted to be like it was in the start

    General CommentThough I'm sure it relates to something more mundane, I like to think this is the voice of a soul who misses being part of the connected totality of everything, misses how things were "at the start", before creation makes a soul human or even a soul a soul. Now it's stuck in a human body. It is the voice of a young simple soul - being a soul is simple - so it doesn't take a lot to confuse it, and the confusion and craziness of human life makes it sad, angry and frantic to escape.
