Live - There's No One There - The Speed Of Sound

There's No One There is a strangely uplifting anthem of misery and angst, written in 1983 it predates The Speed Of Sound and has been in the live set since the beginning. The world can be a dark place, but when the tide is too strong just concentrate on staying afloat and never worry about something you can't do anything about etc, etc, etc. Enough of that – play the song now:

There's No One There

It seems there's nothing I can depend on
There's no one I can rely on
I can't even try to escape
I know I'm trapped and I know I'm alone
There's no one there, there's no one there

I can't do anything in the state I'm in
It'd help to talk but no one's listening
I know I'm slowly losing my mind
I know I'm trapped and I know I'm alone
There's no one there, there's no one there

Depressions's got a hold on me
Nothing I can do can set me free
I can't even try to escape
I know I'm trapped I'm on my own
There's no one there, there's no one there

There's no way out of this abyss, there's no escape from this dream-scape
There's no release from this quagmire, there's no rescue because the fates conspire
There's no one there, there's no one there

There's no way out of this abyss, there's no escape from this dream-scape
There's no release from this quagmire, there's no rescue because the fates conspire
There's no one there, there's no one there

It seems there's nothing I can depend on
There's no one I can rely on
I can't even try to escape
I know I'm trapped and I know I'm alone
There's no one there, there's no one there                                                  
                                       John Armstrong August 1983
