Track Name: On Backstreets
Through the static someone's singin'
"It don't matter to me now
Blame it on the lies that killed us
On the truth that ran us down"

Now can you tell I don't get out much?
There's nothing out there for me
I'm staying in and getting high
A long, slow defeat

Did you ever think you might've been better
If you'd just tried harder at just about anything?

Here's the part that always gets me
He gives it all away
How it's our guilt that keeps us lonely
And the ticket stubs we save

Did you ever think you might've been better
If you hadn't run away when someone was asking you to wait?

Through the static someone's singin',
"It don't matter to me now
You can blame it all on me, Terry
It don't matter to me now"
