Hey boys, look where we are
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
So get ready to run
This all goes to show
just how little you really know
About the way that we are
I notice everything
Like every single rumor
That you spread today
You're never gonna change
Let's set this record straight
I know all your dirty secrets
That you kept from me
This conversation's over
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
You're all the same
You think that everyone around you cares about what you think
No one knows your name
It's about that time
take everyone you know and get as far across my states line
as you possibly can
I notice everything
Like every single rumor
That you spread today
You're never gonna change
Let's set this record straight
I know all your dirty secrets
That you kept from me
This conversation's over
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Will they miss me when I'm gone?
Will this time be for too long?
Wait till then
And see if time brings change
Will they miss me when I'm gone?
Will this time be for too long?
Wait till then
And see if time brings change
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step
(Watch your step)
This town can chew you up
And spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
(Watch your step)
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
(Watch your step)
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
(Watch your step)
(Watch your step)
(Watch your step)

    He's talking about how people use to spread rumors and lies about him and the others in the band while they were out trying to make it big, and now that they did he comes back and exposes those people's lies and rumors and is saying how they are nothing compared to him, even though they talked a lot of smack and tried to deter other people's opinions about them. He's saying to be careful what you say because the people in that town will take what you say and turn it around anyway they can and try to burn you and your reputation. And when he asks "Will they miss when I'm gone? Will this time be for too long? Wait till then and see if time brings change," he's basically saying that this next time they go on tour, when they get back will people be different when they get back.
