"A Town Called Hypocrisy" as written by Ian/gaze Watkins and Richard James/lewis Oliver....
Can you take this broken boy
And put the pieces back as one?
Though he has all of his toys
He is never having fun

Because its not enough
Now we're growing up
We had given up
We're moving on

Because its not enough
We were growing up
We had given up
And I won't hear what you say so

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

A town called hypocrisy

Can you take this lonely girl
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
And pick her up from off the ground?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Cause there's no pride to be found
When you follow sheep around
And no future here
No future for us in this town

Because its not enough
Now we're growing up
We had given up
We're moving on

Because its not enough
We were growing up
We had given up
And I won't hear what you say so

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

La, la, la, la la la la la la la
La, la, la, la la la la la la la
La, la, la, la la la la la la la
La, la, la, la la la la la la la

Because its not enough
Now we're growing up
We had given up
We're moving on

Because its not enough
We were growing up
We had given up
And I won't hear what you say so

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

Save your sympathy
Who'd you think you're fooling
Everything is dead
Now you welcome me
To a town called hypocrisy

    My InterpretationAfter seeing the music video, I can safely say that I know what this song is about:

    It's about Ian Watkins' molesting children and raping babies while loving every minute of it.

    General CommentLostprophets are back, and catchy as ever.

    This is a typical leaving home song, moving away from the place you are known for, but LP simply do it best.

    General CommentThe only line I really thought about was
    "save your sympathy
    who'd you think you're fooling
    everything is dead"
    And I thought it was something like someone was pretending to sympathise with this person but they just thought it was stupid because they didn't even care anymore. so they wonder why they would bother and who they think they're fooling by saying they sympatise or whatever. I dont know. Anyhoo, AMAZING song. Ace! x

    General CommentThink this song is one of the best on the album - can't believe no one had added it yet!

    I would say its about a relationship where the girl cheated/lied and so they split up but the girl wants to pretend like it never happened. He feels like he's been living in a world of hypocrisy (falseness) because of her lying.

    Think the video is pretty cool too - possibly a 'blue peter' style link there where they portray the world as innocent when it really isn't (like when Matt Baker (think that was his name) was fired for taking drugs)??
