"Evil Town" as written by and Nicholls....
Evil is what you are
As well as being sharp
I fell right to it
She sells and I don't
Like it feels
Like Shonen Knife and kills
But they don't mind in an evil town
Evil is what you are
As well as being sharp
I fuckin' feel to it
I'm in an evil town

    General CommentCraig and Patrick in an interview:

    Craig:
    “ Evil Town is about kind of certain types of people and certain types of places, but no-one or nowhere in particular. It really isn’t. But if you think about a town that is, well, evil, just apply the song to whatever place that is for you. I think it’s got this futuristic vibe to it but it’s still just using basic drums and guitar.”
    Patrick:
    “ Very chromatic equals Evil in a musical sense.”

    General CommentSounds like its about chris detecting how harsh people can be towards him, and maybe even looking back he saw some of the jokes at his expense, evil town is his reaction to that.

    He feels dull and stupid, and no one cares.

    General CommentThis song is about Geelong, Australia. Can't think of a town more evil than this one.

    My InterpretationI feel that this song is about how a person hates their town so much and tries their very best to move away from that "Evil Town" but they keep getting lured back into it somehow. This song is very personal to me because I live in a town called Edgewater Park,NJ and the people here are really assholes and have no respect for one another.
