A song inspired by the difficulties involved in being a young autistic person in an uncaring world.....it is not a condition that ends when childhood ends and it is a burden....from the first line it felt that it should be done in this derivative style and we do not apologise for it...the world is full of tribute acts...at least we wrote our own!


Little black cloud
you take it everywhere
you rain on your own parade
Little black cloud
you should be more aware
you live in a world........that you have made

Being a smart ass don't make you smart
being a wiseguy don't make you wise
Open your eyes now
let some sunshine in
banish the shadows from your sky.

You shouldn't make an enemy
of anyone who disagrees
With your philosophy.
Lock yourself in,
where you know everything
push........everyone away.
