"Wicked Little Town (Tommy Gnosis Version)" as written by and Stephen Trask....
You know, the sun is in your eyes
And hurricanes and rains
And black and cloudy skies.

You're running up and down that hill.
You turn it on and off at will.
There's nothing here to thrill
Or bring you down.
And if you've got no other choice
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town.

Oh Lady, luck has led you here
And they're so twisted up
They'll twist you up. I fear.

The pious, hateful and devout,
You're turning tricks till you're turned out,
The wind so cold it burns,
You're burning out
and blowing round.

And if you've got no other choice
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town.

The fates are vicious
and they're cruel.
You learn too late you've used two wishes like a fool

And then you're someone you are not,
And Junction City ain't the spot,
Remember Mrs. Lot
And when she turned around.

And if you've got no other choice
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town.
Of this wicked little town.

    General Commentthis is truly an excellent song
    i believe this song is about someone coping with another person that they love and their trying to describe the person. i feel that the person who is loved is misunderstood, doesn't believe in god, and is constantly on the move so they are unable to be comfortable and find it hard to connect

    My InterpretationI think this song is the "second part" of a song by the same name, sung by Hedwig him/herself. Tommy is the misguided little youth who fell in love with Hedwig, and Tommy is the person that both defined destroyed Hedgwig in the process.

    Also funny how Hedwig sings about the mythical idea of finding your other half, while this version sings about about the uselessness and futility into thinking such "hogwash".
