"Solitude" as written by Joe Jackson, Irving Mills, Eddie Delange and Duke Ellington....
I'm gonna hang out with myself.
I won't be in debt to anybody
Or have to worry about pushing anyone
'Cause I don't want them around.

And everybody around me has told me things that I don't believe
Seems like everyone around is pleased when I'm not happy.

I'm all alone again,
And I'm perfectly content for now.

As I dream of somewhere else,
I won't have to answer to anybody
Or have to listen to the moronic views that I hear everywhere.
As I wonder, I start to doubt that anyone would have relief
To a lie he's gonna say before I walk away
There's no use in trying to explain?

I'm all alone again,
And I'm perfectly content.
Yeah, I'm all alone again,
And I'm perfectly content for now.

    General CommentMore exact version of the lyrics, copied straight from the jacket:

    I'm gonna hang out with myself I won't be in debt to anybody
    Won't have to worry about impressing anyone because I don't want them around
    Everybody around me has told me things that I don't believe
    It seems like everyone around is pleaced when I'm not happy

    I'm alone again and I'm perfectly content for now

    As I drift to somewhere else I won' thave to answer to anybody
    Won't have to listen to the moronic views that I hear everywhere
    As I wander I start to doubt that anyone would have related to what I was gonna say
    before I walked away there's no use in trying to explain

    I'm alone again and I'm perfectly content yeah I'm alone again and I'm perfectly content for now


    I am believing that this song is him saying that all the people around him are stupid, and he'd be much better off by himself and not have to put up with their idiocy.
