"Rectify" as written by David Byrne, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth....
RECTIFY
(Gary Moore/Cass Lewis/Darrin Mooney)
I never knew you were so close to the edge.
I saw you standing up on top of that ledge.
You never told me that the damage was done.
How could I know I'm not the only one?

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

I always said you were too close to yourself.
You never took the time for no one else.
I told you that you would be sorry one day.
But all you did was let the shadows play.

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

I've seen your kind too many times before.
Now Evil Joe is knockin' on your door.
But one day soon you'll find it's all too late.
And what you had's all turned to bitter hate.

I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.
I'm gonna rectify you.

Gonna rectify,
I'm gonna rectify.
Gonna rectify,
I'm gonna rectify.
I'm gonna rectify you.

Ooh-ah.
