Alexisonfire – This Could Be Anywhere In The World Lyrics

This town has its claws buried in my neck
This town it takes lives without mercy, without hate

The streets are in distress
The sun suffocates behind darkened skies
The grass is growing    on top of my feet
I'm sinking, won't be long, before I'm too deep to run

The lineup seems endless
Underneath the salvation signs.
We are the dead ones, we are the lost cause
We are the bend before the break. Our steps seal our fate.

[CHORUS]
Because this city, this city is haunted
By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (homes)
Because this city, this city is haunted
And there's no hope (hope) left for these souls (souls).

Every step I take
I leave a small piece
of myself behind. Soon there will be nothing left.

The cracks in the pavement,
Match the cracks in their weathered skin
The sky's a brick wall
The ground's a juggernaut
Each day they get a   bit closer, Between them,
I am caught.

I stare in amazement, 
I can't believe this is where I live.
Every breath I take
I feel my lungs seal
This breeze feels more like shards of glass I'm more scars than skin

[CHORUS]
Because this city, this city is haunted
By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (homes)
Because this city, this city is haunted
And there's no hope (hope) left for these souls (souls).

[BRIDGE]
Our steps seal fate, our steps seal fate.

This is our celebration
Come join the lost souls
[x2]

[SILENT]
This city, this city is haunted.

Oh!
Walk with us. Oh!
Down! Walk. with. us.

[CHORUS]
Because this city, this city is haunted
By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (homes)
Because this city, this city is haunted
And there's no hope (hope) left for these souls (souls).
