"Crooked" as written by Jim Adkins, Tom Linton, Mitch Porter and Zach Lind....
Why do you think I just want you for some more?
If it, the ending's over why do you come back for more?
Can be such a drag
Stir you round and round
You're a fake
Is it a crime?
It's over, no more can lose
Fork over, just leave me quick
Have you wondered why?
I wish I could smile
Screw the lid on tight with all your might
First come, first serve
Is it right?
You're a fake
Is it a crime?
It's over, no more can lose
Fork over, just leave me quick

    General CommentIt's a song about her. Her inability to be true to herself and those around her, and her ability to suspend reason in him. I wish I'd seen this song sooner.

    General CommentI guess this is technically slightly "off-topic" since it doesnt actually apply directly to the TRACK "Crooked" itself, but why do so few JEW listeners know about/seek out/seem to even recognize the existence of JEW's TRUE debut (not Static prevails)...I mean, some of the stuff on the S/T record (and yes, this is their ONLY self-titled album, even if they pussied out and tried to swipe out the title post 9/11...the CD I bought says "Bleed American", and thats also the name of its first track, not...salt, sweat, sugar?!!)

    JEW is dfinitely a band big enough to have at the very least a semi-obsessive fan base, so youd th but apart from the lack of discussions on JEW b-sides and rarities, this is an entire ALBUM worth of tracks that nobody recognizes. For random example, the Radiohead forums I tend to frequent, it seems like EVERYBODY has already heard everything the band has ever put out in any way/shape/form, to as recent as some totally new song they played somewhere in Europe the other day. And JEW have tons of great rare tracks. Anyone hear ever hear their cover of Duran Duran's "New Religion"??? Fucking amazing. Just seems silly, don't it??

    But ANYWAY, "Crooked" is a great tune...I dig it especially I think cos one of of the few Jimmy songs in general where the bass has a prominent melodic role, and also being their first album its the only one Mitch Porter played bass on before he was replaced by Burch (I'd be curious to know how far into their record deal that departure happened.
