"SHUT UP" as written by and Camille Berthomier Fay Geraldine Milton....
Too many to convince
Too many to hire
And nothing you ever own
The world's a dead sorry hole
And I'm cold, and I'm cold
And I'm cold, and I'm stubborn
I'm sick to keep it open wide
And speaking words to the blind

Speaking words, to the blind
Speaking words, to the blind

And the soul of the pure
And the eyes of the lover
And the one who truly saw your soul
And the one who truly saw your soul

I'm the one, who truly saw your soul
I'm the one, who truly saw your soul

And if you tell me to shut up
And if you tell me to shut it
Did you tell me to shut up
Oh if you tell me to shut it
I'll shut it now

Young, just born
Fragile and trembling soul
You hold it to the light
That pours down the moon at night
You kept on holding it
You kept on holding it
It was a dangerous thing to do
But you did it when no one knew
When the eyes were closed
And the people asleep

Not an animal
Not a human
Not a soul
Not a soul

And if you tell me to shut up
And if you tell me to shut it
Did you tell me to shut up
Oh if you tell me to shut it
I shut it now

I am a breaker of ocean
Leaden like a bullet to the sun

I am a breaker of ocean
Leaden like a bullet to the sun, to the sun, to the sun

    General CommentOkay; I edited these very incorrect lyrics soon after they were first posted, but for some reason Songmeanings doesn't respect efforts to edit incorrect lyrics and has been sporadically ignoring changes but accrediting editors nonetheless. That's silly. Below are the correct lyrics, copied directly from the Savages website, including the opening which is an excerpt from the John Cassavetes film 'Opening Night'.

    ***

    "Come on in, I have the bar set up! How about a drink?"

    "No, thank you."

    "Oh come on, loosen up a little! Have a drink."

    "No thank you. I don't want one."

    "Sit down. Should we call room service? You're not hungry?"

    "No, thank you,"

    "How old are you, really? I'm trying to be patient? How old are you? I'm 65. How old are you?"

    TOO MANY TO CONVINCE
    TOO MANY TO HIRE
    AND NOTHING YOU EVER OWN
    THE WORLD’S A DEAD SORRY HOLE
    AND I’M COLD, AND I’M COLD
    AND I'M COLD, AND I’M STUBBORN
    I’M SICK TO KEEP IT OPEN WIDE
    AND SPEAKING WORDS TO THE BLIND

    SPEAKING WORDS, TO THE BLIND
    SPEAKING WORDS, TO THE BLIND

    AND THE SOUL OF THE PURE
    AND THE EYES OF THE LOVER
    AND THE ONE WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL
    AND THE ONE WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL

    I’M THE ONE, WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL
    I’M THE ONE, WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL

    AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
    AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
    DID YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
    OH IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
    I’LL SHUT IT NOW

    YOUNG, JUST BORN
    FRAGILE AND TREMBLING SOUL
    YOU HOLD IT TO THE LIGHT
    THAT POURS DOWN THE MOON AT NIGHT

    YOU KEPT ON HOLDING IT
    YOU KEPT ON HOLDING IT
    IT WAS A DANGEROUS THING TO DO
    BUT YOU DID IT WHEN NO ONE KNEW
    WHEN THE EYES WERE CLOSED
    AND THE PEOPLE ASLEEP

    NOT AN ANIMAL
    NOT A HUMAN
    NOT A SOUL
    NOT A SOUL

    AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
    AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
    DID YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
    OH IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
    I SHUT IT NOW

    I AM A BREAKER OF OCEAN
    LEADEN LIKE A BULLET TO THE SUN

    I AM A BREAKER OF OCEAN
    LEADEN LIKE A BULLET TO THE SUN, TO THE SUN, TO THE SUN…
