"Boomtown" as written by and Joe Keithley....
So here let's talk about the boomtown facts
You've got stick up kids coming right at my back
Two blocks of reasonable rent and it's only getting smaller
And the rest of boomtown is only getting taller
You've got ten miles of traffic and three hundred miles of roadway
And a million lights burning bright night and day
With all these lights going off like roman candles
It's getting too much for me to handle
Boomtown's only based on image torn down and built up from one man's Vision
When all the workers are all up and gone
It feels like I'm sitting on a ticking time bomb.

    General CommentThis song is so stupid, but i love the progression in the song. The lyrics remind me of stupid school pep rallies

    General CommentShesMyAlcatraz, I don't know what the hell you're talking about. This song has nothing to do with pep rallies. As you may or may not know, LTJ is from Florida, and we've been having some screwy ass problems with too many damn people living here for, about, ever. High rises have been the in thing for quite a while now too ("the rest of Boomtown is only getting taller"). So basically the song is about places like Florida, that become "the best place to live!!!" and get way overpopulated.

    P.S. Traffic really is that bad here. D:
