Also tell us if the lyrics could be coming from you, another autistic person or a non-autistic person?

I have one!



I feel like this song is me when trying to make relationships with people :lol: :lol:

Paul Simon, yes, definitely.

Just about anything by Rush. The song "Subdivisions" always comes to mind, especially with the music video, which is about as geeky and '80s as one can get.

David Byrne is Aspie, though I feel it much more in his mannerisms and vocal styles than I do his lyrics. But I definitely relate to a line from Psycho Killer:
"When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?"

We can't have a thread like this without this song being mentioned at least once.

I think Hopsin is on the spectrum. He seems like an outcast and a thinker. I like Hopsin.

This Israeli pop singer hit upon a great soundtrack for the lives of ASD folks. We all feel like we have fallen from a star, and landed upon "this strange world...".

When I'm feeling unhappy:



You shut your mouth
How can you say?
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does.


When I'm feeling arrogant and supercilious:



Gotta make way for the Homo superior. :wink:

Well there are a few songs I can really relate to, but I don't think I should link them here since not everyone who is autistic is like me or with the kind of life experience as me... even though I can relate to them there are probably many who can't.

Am I taking the question too literally?

I feel like this song describes how a lot of autistic people feel at parties.
