I hate this town, it's so washed up
And all my friends don't give a fuck
They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
When will I find where I fit in

One two three four

Remember when I tried
I never strayed to far from you
Forever by your side
No matter what I was going through
But now I never know the things to say to you
Now help me, but know I'm still on your side
I never showed just what you do to me
This song was always wrong

I hate this town, it's so washed up
And all my friends don't give a fuck
They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
When will I find where I fit in
I hate this town

'Cause no one can understand
I just can't be tied down
Nothing comes between me and my plans
So now I never know the things to say to you
Now help me prove that I'm still on your side
I never showed just what you do to me
The timing was always wrong

I hate this town, it's so washed up
And all my friends don't give a fuck
They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
When will I find where I fit in

And don't believe a word they're telling to you
Don't believe a word they're telling to you
They let me down, when will I find where I fit in
I hate this town.

My world cannot ever bring me down
Everything I had is turning back around
Because our time's worth something
Bigger then both you and me

I can't live my life always backing down
I got to do this right, then make it make a sound
'Cause I'm not here for nothing
At least I can say I stand for something

You and me we stand for something

I hate this town, it's so washed up
And all my friends don't give a fuck
They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
When will I find where I fit in

And don't believe a word they're telling to you
Don't believe a word they're telling to you
They let me down, when will I find where I fit in
I hate this town

    Song MeaningHe wants to get out of the stupid town that he unfortunately lives in. He can't take it. He needs to get out and away from everyone.

    His friends seem like they have just got used to the idea that they're going to stay in that town for the rest of their lives and they just don't care anymore.

    He has someone that shares his same thoughts and they stand together on a lot of things. Lately, something has been wrong between the two of them and he feels it as if though it's his fault. Thinking that maybe he's always wrong. He wants this person to know that he is still there for them.

    No one understands him. He has dreams to get out of that town and that's what hes going to do.

    He's not going to listen to some dumb people tell him that he can't make it in what he wants to pursue. He's going to go out ther and make something of himself whether they believe in him or not. He's going to get out and reach for his dreams.

    He did everything to get him to where he is today. Time is precious and so much bigger than all of us.

    He can't just conform to other peoples' thoughts and beliefs. He's here to stand for something big and no one can stop him from saying what he has to say. He's going to say whatever and they con't do anything about it to stop him.

    They stand for the same thing. It also means to me, that this person he is talking about needs to stop listening to the thoughts of other people, that he or she needs to continue to stand for what they believe in. They stand for something together, they're not just like the people around them.

    <3 I love this song. I think most people can relate so much to it, that just makes it even more beautiful. (: ADTR <3

    General Commentthis song is about sucky OCALA, FLORIDA.
    it's where they're from & where i'm from.
    seriously, if you know anything about it, it sucks. Everyone has a stick shoved so far up their butts & people tend to get sucked in after graduating. we have a community college so everyone just settles for that. I'm guessing it's called all signs point to lauderdale because ft. lauderdale is an absolutely gorgeous city about two hours away from there.

    so this songs really super relates to me because i know EXACTLY what they mean about the town being so washed up and nobody caring.

    General CommentYou guys do realize that when ADTR refers to 'this town,' they're not literally talking about a place right? This town can be seen throughout their music such as in "Downfall of Us All" and others. Whenever you hear the term 'this town,' they mean the music industry. He hates how it works, "it's so washed up," etc.. Keep that in mind and look over these lyrics again.

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song. Story of my life.



    Lyric changes that need to be made:
    (chant-?)
    2, 3, 4 [OR] Tell me more

    But tell me that its just bad luck.
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck

    But now I never know
    the things to say to you.
    And I how Im made but im still on your side.???
    But now I never know the things to say to you that help me prove that I’m still on your side

    General CommentHmm actually they first line to do with 'bad luck' sounds like "Don't tell me that it's just bad luck". I'm not sure though. Has anyone actually bought the CD? Wouldn't the lyrics be in the case?

    Lyric CorrectionI hate this town.
    Its so washed up.
    And all my friends don't give a fuck.
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck.
    When will I find where I fit in? (1,2,3,4)

    Remember when I tried?
    I'd never stray to far from you.
    Forever by your side.
    No matter what I was going through
    But now I never know those things to say to you
    To help me prove that I'm still on your side
    I'm never sure just what you do to me,
    Guess I was always wrong.

    I hate this town.
    It's so washed up.
    And all my friends don't give a fuck.
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck.
    When will I find where I fit in?
    I hate this town

    Cause no one can understand.
    I just cant be tied down.
    Nothing comes between me and my plans.

    So now I never know
    the things to say to you.
    To help me prove that I'm still on your side
    I never show just what you do to me.
    Guess I'm what's always wrong.

    I hate this town.
    It's so washed up.
    And all my friends don't give a fuck.
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck.
    When will I find where I fit in?

    And don't believe a word they're telling to you.
    Don't believe a word they're telling to you.
    They're letting you down.
    When will I find where I fit in?
    I hate this town.

    Won't let a world go mad ever bring me down
    Gave everything I had and turn it back around.
    Cause our times worth something,
    Bigger than both you and me.

    I cant live my life always backing down.
    I gotta do this right then they cant make a sound.
    Cause im not here for nothing.
    At least I can say I stand for something.

    You and me we stand for something.

    I hate this town.
    It's so washed up.
    And all my friends don't give a fuck.
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck.
    When will I find where I fit in?

    And don't believe a word they're telling to you.
    Don't believe a word they're telling to you.
    They're letting you down.
    When will I find where I fit in?
    I hate this town.
