"The Downtown" as written by and Travis Shane Meeks....
I know a town where people are running
Away from life, it seems always funny
They think they are smart, doubt what they say
Scared of a change, existing only
To

Bring me down, bring me down
Down, down

Thoughtless in heart, desperate in honesty
Failed from the start, wasted and suffering
Supply them the drugs, just don't take them away
Scared of a change, existing only
To

Bring me down, bring me down
Down, down

I don't feel like I should even worry about you
But I take the time and you push me away
I don't care too much no more
I only seem to waste my breath
Go my own way
Yeah!

Bring me down, bring me down
Bring me down, bring me down
Down
Down

    General CommentThis song id about life everywhere, and ones attempt to escape the status quo life of mindless repetition, drugs, and other crap. Hes saying the people that live like this are bringing him down, hindering his potential to do/become who he wants to be. Their fear of change keeps them down, drugs keeps them down, and many many people live like this and are born into this hence the assumption 'failed from the start'. this is an amazing song. everyone go your own way and DON'T fear change

    General Commenti think this song is about a small town where everyones living their lives in an unknowingly monotonous manner.
    but moreso, a drug addict talking about this dealers "Supply them their drugs / just don't take them away" and "Existing only to bring me down" .

    General CommentThis song is about Charlestown, Indiana. Travis grew up there in the projects. The picture on the back cover of DOTN's debut album is of what we called the Sweet Shop., which was a local corner grocery/hangout in the projects.
