Lyrics

  • THEY SAY THIS TOWN WILL KILL YOU
  • THEY SAY THIS TOWN AIN’T GOT NO SOUL
  • THIS TOWN COULD TAKE A CHILD’S SMILE
  • AND TURN IT INTO STONE
  • BUT DON’T YOU THINK I KNOW THAT
  • THIS PLACE HAS CUT ME TO THE BONE
  • TROUBLES CRAWLING UP YOUR BACK
  • FEAR JUST EATS YOUR SOUL
  • YOU SAY THIS TOWN WILL EAT YOU UP
  • YOU SAY THIS TOWN AIN’T GOT NO HEART
  • YOU TRY TO LEARN ALL YOUR LINES
  • AND TRY TO PLAY YOUR PART
  • WITH ALL THIS DOUBLE DEALING
  • I TELL YOU BROTHER, YOU GET SMART
  • HERE IN KICKBACK CITY
  • YOU’RE LOST BEFORE YOU CAN START
  • PEOPLE IN SUBWAYS LOOK NEARLY HALF-DAZED TO ME
  • RENTING TOMORROW
  • INVESTING IN SORROW
  • NO BELIEF
  • FACES IN SIDE STREETS, HIDING LIKE ANGELS FROM GRACE
  • SELLING YOU SORROW
  • RENTING TOMORROW
  • YOU’RE OUT OF PLACE
  • THEY SAY THIS TOWN WILL KILL YOU
  • THEY SAY THIS TOWN AIN’T GOT NO SOUL
  • THEY’LL SET YOU UP AND PULL THE STITCH
  • ‘TIL YOU’RE UNRAVELED ON THE FLOOR
  • BUT I WON’T LET IT BEAT ME
  • THOUGH TROUBLE’S KNOCKING ON MY DOOR
  • SOMEHOW IT’S JUST YOUR SMILE
  • THAT KEEPS ME COMING BACK FOR MORE
  • HERE IN KICKBACK CITY
  • FEEL I’M GOING DOWN SLOW
  • HERE IN KICKBACK CITY
  • FEEL I’M GOING DOWN SLOW
