​Solitary Confinement

This song is by The Members and appears on the album At the Chelsea Nightclub (1979).

You are living in the suburbs,
And you have problems with your parents,
So you move on up to London town,
Where you think everything's happening, going down.

Living in a bedsit,
Travelling on a tube train,
Working all day long.
And you know no one,
So you don't go out,
And you eat out of tins,
And you watch television,
Solitary confinement.

I have got a good job,
And I am working in the city,
Get the tube train at 8 o'clock and 5,
And a really don't know if I'm dead or alive.

Living in a bedsit,
Travelling on a tube train,
Working all day long.
And you know no one,
So you don't go out,
And you eat out of tins,
And you watch television,
Solitary confinement.

Well I was living in Camberley, and, you know, I thought I'd move up to town, you know, so I got this bedsit on earls court, and like, not many people come to visit me, in fact no one comes at all, but there's this bird across the way who, I mean I know she fancies me and everything, but well, I got it sussed, she got a 40 inch bust, and she's just... just just!

Living in a bedsit,
Travelling on a tube train,
Working all day long.
And you know no one,
So you don't go out,
And you eat out of tins,
And you watch television,
Solitary confinement.

You're so lonely,
Solitary confinement,
You're so lonely,
Solitary confinement.

The Members are going to tell you what it's like to be

On your own
By yourself

And it's lonely for you,
And it's lonely for me,
And it's lonely for all of us, can't you see?

Living in a bedsit,
Travelling on a tube train,
Working all day long.
And you know no one,
So you don't go out,
And you eat out of tins,
And you watch television,
Solitary confinement
