“Conditioned Soul”



I can’t stand it

There are numerous elements to make a romantic night special; indecision is not one of them: “Darling just be yourself tonight, there’s nothing wrong with the way you feel; the moon and stars are in the sky, we’re centuries apart and the lights are shining down on you”. And, being mindful of past vicissitudes in love, the instant transformation of a caring boyfriend in a vicious hurter should be taken in account: “Everybody’s hurting someone, stabbing back just to get some fun; I hope to God I don’t get me none, or never fall into some killer’s arms again”.

“Conditioned Soul” is the fifth track on Be Yourself Tonight (1985).
