"Nothing Touches" as written by and Justin Edward Sullivan....
We drive in silence beneath the grey dawning skies
Past the cooling towers where the white clouds slowly rise
I watch the world through motionless eyes
Nothing touches . . nothing ever touches

Raised as son of Empire, hardened like a piece of steel
I am the master now of all that I can see
This means so much to you but nothing much to me
Nothing touches . . nothing ever touches

Please take me home - I am very young. Please take me home.

And yes I heard you screaming as you walked out of my door
And yes I've seen those bloody faces picked up from the floor
I feel nothing and yet I understand it all
Nothing touches . . nothing ever touches

    General CommentOne of the most brutally sad songs I've heard. Played simply with just a guitar - I love it. The lyrics written down don't do justice to how they are sung.
