This town is dirty Honey, even for a girl like you.
Where the game is lets play fake.
And the players, all the religious and the scoundrels -
one in the same. Oh what a shame.
What an absolutely terrible shame.

There are liars outside your window
singing syncopated rhythms drowning in your ear
and theyre all you ever, all you ever, ever hear.
Your apathy says blame for this. Uh huh yeah.
Apathy says blame me for this.

Oh, day two is quite the same/
In fact just the name -lets change face.
And the players, all the religious and the scoundrels
meet in the shady place today.
What a terrible shame.

Youre home now curled up with your chin to your knee.
Does it hurt to breathe? Just dont go to sleep.
Loose lips, wide hips, you dont have to beg.
Each night a different man in your bed.
But heres the question, does that man need you?
Loose lips, wide hips, you dont have to beg,
Each night a different man in your bed.
And he knows it. He knows he doesnt need you.

Singing syncopated rhythms drowning in your ear
and theyre all you ever, all you ever, ever hear.
Your apathy cant blame me for this. No.
Apathy cant blame me for this.

    General CommentI agree with slj06863...and I also believe that having an in-depth relationship with God is more important that following guidelines to a certain religion. Anyway....

    I think this song is about this girl being trapped in a world where everyone is fake and the same, even though they all claim to be different. Everyone in this town of fakes is plotting against her, knowing what they're doing and knowing that she'll fall for it all. He is trying to warn her but she gets caught up in all of their "games" anyway, and she blames her indifference (apathy), which gets her into this mess, on him. He finally gets tired of trying to save her and tells her that she can't put the blame on him.

    relationships and religon.. no they are all christians. it says so on they're myspace.
    but i think its about a girl who is in all these different relationships and wants to stop being in all these relationships but cant because she needs to feel loved.

    General CommentI definately believe it's about a girl in a bunch of relationships, perhaps she has horrible self-esteem issues or something but it almost seems like she brings it on herself because of "loose lips wide hips". Sort of reminds me of prostitution. But another interesting thing is both the "religious" people and the scoundrels are the same. Sort of like the pharasies because religion doesn't mean anything without A relationship with God. So there are people who pretend to be christians or whatever and then theres just plain dirty people and all of them are using her just to get into her bed. She doesn't want to live like this anymore but whats she to do? She's become apathetic to her situation(Passionless, she doesn't care) so she doesn't care what happens to her body or something. Perhaps I'm way off track but thats just what I got. Amazing song though, caught my ear right away

    General Commentto paradiso:
    I believe petraluvsmusic means that ivoryline believes in a personal relationship with God versus the conventions of participating in a certain religion, not the relationships that the character in their song is having.

    General Commentwhoa hey now, let's not get agressive here, paradiso.
    As far as Christianity goes, religion sucks because it is fundamentalist crap with no power and is counter scriptural. It's exactly what Jesus opposed here on earth, not to mention what killed Jesus - the religious pharisees.

    But the song I think is about a girl who lives in a depraved society. She has been drawn into sexual sin and all kinds of bad stuff. This "dirty town" which I believe refers to our culture, and its celebration of sin, also includes religious people who are quick to judge and are prideful. they are the scoundrels. The girl, knowing that the sin she's in is wrong, feels the need to change, but is constantly lied to by media, culture, and ultimately satan, which causes apathy. So she blames her problems on others, or ignores them altogether. And in today's culture, this hypothetical girl could potentially be referring to someone in the church. It's too easy to be fake these days.

    General CommentI think it's about a prostitute.

    Youre home now curled up with your chin to your knee.
    Does it hurt to breathe? Just dont go to sleep.
    Loose lips, wide hips, you dont have to beg.
    Each night a different man in your bed.
    But heres the question, does that man need you?

    this is conveying she hates herself for being a prostitute and curling up in fetal position

    each night a differant man explains itself
    as does loose lips wide hips

    and the do they really need you as in men who go to prostitutes are only looking for cheap thrills nothing more

    'And the players, all the religious and the scoundrels
    meet in the shady place today.
    What a terrible shame.'

    that appears to me to be talking of a brothel where this prostitute works.

    alas this is only what i take from this song i'm probably completely wrong hahaha :)
