Back Strung Out - Miscellaneous Songs
1. Betrayal (Old) (2:33)
2. Every Breath You Take (3:09)
3. Pleather (New) (2:56)
4. Soulmate (3:19)
5. Crows (3:32)

These are songs that don't appear on any main Strung Out release, including Prototypes & Painkillers. Because of that aforementioned release, there are only a handful of songs here but Strung Out have a history of doing lots of great one-offs, so I'm sure there will be more added later.



01 BETRAYAL (OLD)

(2:33)

This is the "Old" version of the song, slightly different than the
"New" version that currently appears on Prototypes & Painkillers.
It was originally released on "The Show" Soundtrack.


This engine's revving and the tires are burning
The smell of asphalt lingers in the air
My head is spinning and my thoughts are burning
A rattle she shakes with every stare

Tell me where just tell me how
Tell me where I'm supposed to go
A thousand miles down this one way street
Where it stops I don't know

Hallucinations and the incarnations
Never bargained for a ride like this
Lying disgrace has knocks me off my feet
Down and out but not alone

Tell me where just tell me how
Tell me where I'm supposed to go
A thousand miles down this one way street
Where it stops I don't know

I've dug my grave and I've locked my door
No prayer's gonna save me now
This machine has sealed my fate
My fate just waits and I've lost all control of my world

Tell me where just tell me how
Tell me where I'm supposed to go
A thousand miles down this one way street
And where it stops I don't know

02 EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE

(0:00)

Originally released on "Before You Were Punk 2"



Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
In the night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep callin baby, baby, please

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
And every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every breath you take, every move you make
Every bond you break, every single day
Every step you take, I'll be watching you
Every breath you take, every move you make
Every bond you break, every single day
Every step you take, I'll be watching you
Every breath you take, every move you make
Every bond you break, every single day
Every step you take, I'll be watching you

03 PLEATHER (NEW VERSION)

(2:56)

Different version from the one on Prototypes & Painkillers that was never released.
Briefly leaked onto the internet years ago.



Another lazy afternoon still fresh inside my head
The sun beats down, we drive around
No expectations to hold us down
That car would take us anywhere, just be back before the sun
Return to that uneasy place where you are father and I am son

We're going for a drive
It's all in my mind

The smell of pleather and gasoline, we are chrome that turned to rust
The years that separate us now are the years we lost to our mistrust
I'm sorry for my absence but it isn't all my fault
I've gone to a place where I can say that I'm not angry at you anymore

We're going for a drive
It's all in my mind
Let me steer us home, I promise to get us there
Looking straight ahead I'll be alright tonight

I look inside myself and find a piece of you in spite of me
It's getting easier to accept that I've become a lot like you again
I look inside myself and find a way out of this tangled way
I'm doing things to spite you now
I'm doing things to tear me down

So turn the radio up and we'll sit inside a revelry
A silent moment locked in time
A signal that it'll be alright well
It's getting easier to be me every day
I look inside myself and I find a piece of you

04 SOULMATE

(3:19)

This is a No Use For A Name cover that was released on
the Tony Sly tribute album "The Songs Of Tony Sly - A Tribute".



Monday morning you woke up crying
The outcome of some stupid line, oh
Said by some punk-ass on the street
If it wasn't me, it wasn't you
It wasn't anybody you knew, is it
Your old friend insecurity

The one companion
That stuck by your side since you were born

Tuesday night you were in a fight
The same old argument, just black and white
It's something that's eating your inside
It's not the food, it's not the booze
It isn't anything consumed, now is it
Becoming a problem you can't hide

So every time
You thought that you were wrong, but you were right

The devil on your shoulder
Gives you strength and paranoia
The countless times you called a few
Your best friend 'til the end of time
They'll always be there by your side
Solidify conditions you've abused

What that means you'll never have a clue

More than just a life long friend
No social life, I guess we can pretend
It's not like I care but anyway
You never wanna leave, you never wanna stay
Cause you think if you drink too much then you will lose it
You'll drink your security away

The one companion
That stuck by your side since you were born

That little voice inside your head
Annoying and confusing
That somehow tells you what to do
Socially you've lost your mind
And basically you're out of time
You try to build so much it breaks on you

What that means you'll never have a clue

What that means you'll never have
What that means you'll never have a
What that means you'll never have a clue

05 CROWS

(3:32)

Released on Fat Wreck Holiday 2016



The crows, you carried me through another night
To get back down and I'm going crazy

I'm starving at your feast tonight
Taking all my cues from the city light
Where we are just barely holding on

Now we sleep underneath the freeway bridge
We belong nowhere and to no one
And knowing where we got lost

With California at my back
And the whole world in a paper bag
Another state of mind might do me alright

We do desolation in style
Murdering hope for the mild
Never really knowing what we've got
So we're losing to an afterthought


Do we deserve this life

I've been everywhere and I've seen my share
Of the ways that we have let each other down
And I wonder why

Not all who wander here are lost
Not all who seek that peace of mind
Wonder where they're going

We know exactly where we've been
We know this ain't a game you play to win
You can't find yourself on a leaving train
Down familiar roads

Never gonna make it out alive
Whatcha gonna leave here when you die
Take a chance on me and meet me at the darkest road

We've done just enough to get us by
We're no more than just barely alive
We're sleeping no more
With hearts too deep to drown

Not all who wander here are lost
Not all who seek that peace of mind
Wonder where they're going

We know exactly where we've been
We know this ain't a game you play to win
You can't find yourself on a leaving train
Down familiar roads

The crows, you carried me through another night
And I'm going crazy, I'm going crazy

I'll be starving at your feast tonight
Taking all my cues from the city light
Where we are just barely holding on

Just barely holding on, just barely holding on
Just barely holding on, just barely holding on
