If I Have To Be Alone (Up Against It version)

  If I have to be alone
  Then I should make my mind serene
  After all you're born alone, you die alone
  You might as well spend every moment in between alone

  But if I have to be alone
  Then it will be on my own terms
  I can never talk about it, ever show it
  Even though the world is watching while I squirm alone

  And your bleeding heart friends say, "Isn't it sad?"
  Then they go make love
  While you go insane. Insane!
  It drives you mad! Mad!

  My mind, I love my mind
  And if no one can feel the same
  I'm a computer with a name
  And I've got no one else to blame
  If I have to be alone

  And if nobody understands
  That special creature that is me
  And if they fail to see the me I see
  Then no one else knows truly what it means
  To be alone

  Maybe once in a lifetime you lose your will
  Then you can let down your guard
  But they cower in fear. In fear.
  It makes you ill! Ill!

  My heart, my burning heart
  And if no one will quench the flame
  I'm not obliged to do the same
  And then they'll have to share the blame
  Because I have to be alone
  Because I have to be alone
  But I don't want to be alone
