splendid isolation lyrics – warren zevon

“splendid isolation”

i want to live alone in the desert
i want to be like georgia o’keefe
i want to live on the upper east side
and never go down in the street

splendid isolation
i don’t need no one
splendid isolation

michael jackson in disneyland
don’t have to share it with n*body else
lock the gates, goofy, take my hand
and lead me through the world of self

splendid isolation
i don’t need no one
splendid isolation

don’t want to wake up with no one beside me
don’t want to take up with n*body new
don’t want n*body coming by without calling first
don’t want nothing to do with you

i’m putting tinfoil up on the windows
lying down in the dark to dream
i don’t want to see their faces
i don’t want to hear them scream

splendid isolation
i don’t need no one
splendid isolation

splendid isolation
i don’t need no one
splendid isolation
