As the events of this past week have unfolded in America I felt this song was an appropriate ode to the times we live in. I hope and pray that the world can and will do better in the coming months and years but the need to reflection and change will be crucial. 
 
"Going to a Town" is considered to be among the angriest lyrics Wainwright has written, an "indictment of the country of his birth that hinges on the refrain, 'I'm so tired of you America'". The political track, which Wainwright claimed he wrote in just five minutes on the eve of his departure for Berlin, confronts the Bush administration's perceived damage to the U.S. in the form of a love song.

A cry of outrage from this man. The story's gotta change...I'm so tired of you America.
