"This Town" as written by and Mark/rothery Kelly....
Gonna walk right through this town
And laugh with a crowd of strangers chasing me.
Never stop to look behind my back,
So tell me what they said

Because I fear my life's in danger now in this town.
How did you get to my motel -do tell soon.
Gonna walk right through this town again
With a crowd of strangers watching me,

Picking every little thing apart.
So, tell me what they said
Because I get attitude from this town -in this town.
How did you get to this town?

Through this town?
Gonna walk right through this town again
Knowing that I'm only here tonight.
Never cared to stop and say hello;

So, tell me what they said
Because I don't have time to hang around in this town.
Maybe, maybe I should think to stay.
Maybe I won't ever return.

Maybe, maybe I should stop and play.
Gonna walk right through this town again.
But, all I know is I really should be on my way.
Wouldn't mind one more night in town.

    General CommentIt seems that the person talking about the town is paranoid, but he still wants to know what people think about him. He's going to pass through town, thinking that "a crowd of strangers (is) watching (him), picking every little thing apart". Maybe he did something bad ;) But then at the end, he seems to like it or something, saying, "Wouldn't mind one more night in town." if ya know what i mean...

    General Commenti love the beat to this song it's featured in MTV's "Battle of the Sexes" when James and Emily are leaving I think they chose it because the lyrics reflect Emily's behavior towards everyone in Jamaica at the time, anyway its a great song! i <3 HHH

    General CommentIt's about how Steve (lead singer of HHH) would go on tour and find cool people, become friends with them, then have to leave to the next city. It's about not being able to grow close to anyone and put your gaurd up because you know the relationship could never be maintained. This is Steve's interpretation of the song (not mine).
    **Best song on Makeup the Breakdown in my opinion :)
