Some other versions of "In This Town"


Martin Tielli

All around... there's a beautiful smell
And you can't smell nothing else
It's the smell... of everything that we expel

In this town... there are cars and truck
In this town are cars and trucks
In this world... are streets and avenues... (cars, trucks, cars...)
... And all around
There is mmm and AAH
All around there's MMM and AAH
Then there's this forgotten little murmur
They call nothing much at all...

You're such a happening fish
Flopping on me;
Throughout all this time...
So complicated and unfree
From a young boy... with a tail
Into a fish with a b-book or two published

I love you... because you don't know why
You don't know why you feel resentful
And you weep...
And sometimes you are cruel

I love you... because you took a stand
For those of us who are the weaker
'Cause we're not fakes
We are wild and we are screwed

You and I... might have a lot to learn;
But we're shot out of the earth and we tumble into holes
In the interim we're spinning and we don't know how to fall
All the idiots WHO'RE talking don't know anything at all...
