"Shut Me Down" as written by and Rowland Stuart Howard....
Well, so long, baby
I've had enough
I can't ignore it
I miss you so much
I miss you so much
I miss you so much

I'm standing in a suit
As ragged as my nerves
And I agree what I've become
Is surely worth the hatred
That you spat on me

The stars above me
The night so deep
That I could trip or drown
And still I see that you would dearly love
To shut me down

Well, so long, soldier
We're deep in dutch
I can't ignore it
I miss you so much
I miss you so much
I miss you so much

I'm standing in a suit
As ragged as my nerves
And I agree what I've become
Is surely worth the hatred
That you spat on me

The sky above me
The night so deep
That I could trip and drown
And still I see that you would dearly love
To shut me down

I miss you so much
I miss you so much
I miss you so much

    General CommentProlly a quite obvious one, about the break-up between Genevieve McGuckin and him. They still lived together, and this was rather rough, and one night when she got home he'd written this.
    You can hear her talkin' 'bout it in the documentary Autoluminescent. (Which contains lots of precious interviews - although you can see the pain in the eyes of those who stood him close...)
