Man this town will drive you insane
Check my thoughts to check my brain
Hold my wallet like it's glued
In one square block it'll tell you
What it thinks of you
And there's nothing you can do
And all that's left to say
And all that's left to say, now
Is feet don't fail me now
Man I must be out of my mind
This town can be so unkind
Forget about sleep there's nothing you can do
In 24 hours this town has become a living hell
And there's nothing you can do
10-9-8 forty ounces fill this place
7-6-5 then watch the bullets to stay alive
4-3-2 no one way out of this
It's been 24 hours in paramus

    General Commentbooya, I live in Paramus. It's not THAT bad of a place.. crime is really low.. only problem I have with it is that everything closes on Sunday. Everything.

    General CommentVinnie used to live in New Jersey! Presumably around Paramus... this actually links this song to both "Never Going Back to New Jersey" (which you may already have guessed), and "Last Hour of the Last Day of Work"... as the reason Vinnie always talks about hating NJ/Paramus is his dad. but Last Hour talks about the good things about his dad

    General CommentHow come everyone makes fun of New Jersey? I've been to New York and driven through New Jersey but I've never stopped there. Is it really as bad as everyone says?

    General CommentYes it is, Ariane. I'm not trying to say that everyone from Jersey is an asshole, but I've run into a lot of assholes there. Also, most of the idiot drivers here on the NYS Thruway have Jersey tags. And they don't let you pump your own gasoline. Something's just weird about that... ;o)
