"Same Town, New Story" as written by and Fogarino Samuel Banks Paul J....
Same town, new story
They bridge the faded span
He was bound for glory
She found her winning man

Then she stood by him
Through it all
Then she stood by him

She was pounding on the wall
She said it feels like the whole world
Is up on my shoulders
Feels like the whole world coming down on me

How many bones were lost?
He just had to play his hand
What is a woman's duty?
She was always tougher than (same town, new story)

She said who's gonna save them from you?
(Same town, new story)
Who's gonna save them from you? (Same town, new story)
I ain't gonna chase another stake until he's gone

Then she stood by him
Through it all
Then she stood by him
When he was down on his knees
She said we're still alive
We are still alive

Feels like the whole world
Is up on my shoulders (coming down)
Feels like the whole world
Is up on my shoulders (coming down)
Feels like the whole world's coming down on me

Why I pinch her so slowly
Pinch her so slowly
Why I pinch her so slowly
Why I pinch her so slowly
Pinch her so slowly

    General CommentThis is Interpol's best written song on El Pintor, and probably their best writing for a number of years.
