Track Name: Backward Crooked From the Sunset
Lost as lost can be and dragging through the fallen autumn leaves
Battered broke and sore -how can you take another second more
Getting' out right now 'cause you've just gotta get away somehow
And it's cloudy on the flats but just like that

You're walking backward crooked from the sunset
Walking backward crooked from the sunset
Walking backward crooked from the sunset
In the rain

No one else is watching -maybe no one else on earth is left to
Watch you moan and groan about your crummy little cares and worries
Life goes on, it always has -it doesn't care what you've been doing
Miracles still find you all the same

You're walking backward crooked from the sunset
Walking backward crooked from the sunset
Walking backward crooked from the sunset
In the rain
Track Name: Shut Up
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Stop thinking about everything you're thinking about
You little white lie
No one likes you, or wants to hear from you at all
Shut up, shut up, shut up

Don't think, don't move, don't breathe
Stupid brain anyway
I'm ashamed that you're inside me
Burrowing away
Shut up, shut up, shut up

So ridiculous, and so puny
So ignorant and just plain annoying
What chance do I have with you in charge?
Shut up, shut up, shut up

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Stop thinking about everything you're thinking about
You little white lie
No one likes you, or wants to hear from you at all
Shut up
