This song is about someone who goes to great effort to conceal his pain from the world, which does nothing to ease his suffering. This keeps others from getting close to him, which isolates him further.
Der Lange from MannheimSteve, sorry but could your explain why 'School' and 'Bloody Well Right' should be about PARANOIA? We all know, that 'School' is about confusion after school, just like 'The Logical Song'. Thematically it's kind of a prequel. I think your classifications are pretty unprecise - sorry. I don't see why 'Bloody Well Right' should have ANYTHING TO DO with Paranoia. Could you explain? Please! Thanks!
Steve from Torrance, CaThis song, along with "Asylum", comprises one of four themes on the concept album "Crime of the Century": in this case, Mental Illness. The other themes are: Paranoia ("School" and "Bloody Well Right"), Disillusionment/Self-Deception ("Dreamer" and "Rudy"), and Self-Destruction ("If everyone was listening" and "Crime of the Century"). The album's overall concept is the fatal flaws/hubris of human nature.
