Walk up down rundown avenues and back through swollen city veins
Now sobered up enough to understand that nothing stays the same
Over populated crowds you'd think I'd find a place that I'd
Attach myself upon somewhere I felt alive until I die
These hometown blues follow me home again
The closer I go I feel further away
Walk back down run down avenues and attitudes are everywhere
Pass a drunken arguementthey roll around and people stare
Finally hit the underground and no surpriseI turn to find
Two men for twenty pound of mine if I'm alive they'll have me die
(repeat chorus)

    General CommentSeems to be about the way that the world is turning, the way that our hometowns are changing, not like they were when we were young. Idk, just a thought. :)
