      About "Big Dumb Town"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Big Dumb Town"

      Now, when the city was in flame, you were on the phone
      Sellin' fire hoses at a premium loan
      Yeah, the bankers all smile; but when you pass, they frown
      You're just a little too smart for a big dumb town

      Now, we seen you drivin' down the boulevard
      You throw that trash, but not in your backyard
      But like Newton and the apple, what goes up comes down
      You're still a little too smart for a big dumb town

      We'll all applaud when you break on through
      "He's a genius, boys, but then we always knew..."

      Yeah, lofty possibilities, you never had a doubt
      We'd all scream from the bleachers when you'd always strike out
      But now you're way out in front and you look glory bound
      You're just a little too smart for a big dumb town

      Now, when the world is over, clocks run outta wind
      Somebody will scrape through the ruins and find
      A little picture of you and in a file they found
      Sayin' just a little too smart for a big dumb town

      Now, you speak so soft but in your heart you're cold
      In a tower of glass you've got a mountain of gold
      Yeah, you talk real sharp, but we'll soon cut you down
      You're still a little too smart for a big dumb town
