They say this town will kill you
They say this town ain't got no soul
This town could take a childs smile
And turn it into stone
But don't you think I know that
This town has cut me to the bone
Trouble crawling up your back
Fear just eats your soul

You say this town will eat you up
You say this town ain't got no heart
You try to learn all your lines
And you try to play the part
With all this double dealing
I tell you brother you get smart
Here in kickback city
You're lost before you start

People in subways look nearly half dazed to me
Renting tomorrow investing in sorrow no belief

Faces in sidestreets hiding like angels for grace
Selling you sorrow renting tomorrow you're out of place

They say this town will kill you
They say this town ain't got no soul
They'll set you up and pull the stitch
Till you unravelled on the floor
But I won't let it beat me
Though trouble's knocking in my door
Somehow it's just your smile
That keeps me coming back for more
Here in kickback city
Feel I'm going down slow
Here in kickback city
Feel I'm going down slow
