Deep within the lyrics of Computer Blue, the long and unreleased version is one of my favorite works of poetry.
He didn't like living alone
The house where he lived had many hallways
It was a long walk to his bedroom
Because to him each hallway represented an emotion
Every one vastly different from the next
One day while she was with him
He decided 2 name each one
She walked by his side, one hand on his thigh
No, wait, she was sort of half a step behind him
The grip on his thigh intensified
As they walked slowly through the corridor
He named the hallway "Lust"
And as they passed through the next one
He named it "Fear"
The grip she now loosened it
So he walked faster
Her hands now trembling she let
drop 2 her side as she read the word "Insecurity"
looked into her eyes and smiled a demon smile
walked onto the next
Corridor after corridor
He named almost all when suddenly… he stopped
He painted the word "Hate"
She was gone
So he painted the last one – "Pain"
