I once knew a man and everytime that he spoke
He took two steps back so nothin' of him could show
And if you kept talkin', you'd further that fool's retreat
to a faint memory that no living soul could see.....come on.

He once met a blind man who liked the sound of his own voice
He never stopped talking leavin' that man no choice
He took one step back followed by a thousand more
til he was long long gone from the town where he was born...oh no.

Straight tracks don't change
they don't turn
Straight tracks know fate
'cause they don't learn
And they won't stop until shadows burn

He fell back on a lover sleepin undercover of night
She said as long your down here, you may as well stay the night
He said I've never known of lovin', I never really saw the point
to be a half dead sucker on the back of some dirty old coin...oh no..

Straight tracks don't change
they don't turn
Straight tracks know fate
'cause they don't learn
And they won't stop until shadows burn

She said what's a matter man, has your shadow got you on the run?
Shadows only live in the beauty of the noontime sun.
He said my sun burned out many many years ago.
She said well this ain't gonna hurt, I promise you we'll take it slow.

Straight tracks don't change
they don't turn
Straight tracks know fate
'cause they don't learn
And they won't stop until shadows burn
until shadows burn
until shadows burn
until shadows burn
