Lyrics
What's troubling Gus? You sound demented
Is it because someone talked and she told me?
He no longer thinks anything that moves
And everything he sees is something to kill and eat

what's troubling Gus? Is it nothing goes quiet?
The whip-poor-will at dusk

what's troubling Gus? Overhearing conversations
But it?s because you're too either them or me
Well, it?s either them or it?s us anything that moves
And everything you see is something to kill and eat

what's troubling Gus? Is it nothing goes quiet?
Is that what's troubling ya Gus? The mere mention of the name
Used to be enough to make every bird stop singing
Is that what's troubling ya Gus? No one is afraid enough

what's troubling Gus? Is it nothing goes quiet?
Is that what's troubling ya Gus? The mere mention of the name
Used to be enough to make every bird stop singing
The whip-poor-will at dusk, tells you no one is afraid

No one is afraid enough
Is it afraid? Or is it afraid enough?
Troubling Gus
