This town has it's claws
Buried in my neck
This town it takes lives
Without mercy
Without haste

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 too run

The line up 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

Because this city, this city is haunted
By ghosts [Ghosts] from broken homes
Because this city, this city is haunted
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

Because this city, this city is haunted
By ghosts [Ghosts] from broken homes
Because this city, this city is haunted
There's no hope [Hope] left for these souls [Souls]

Our steps seal fate [x2]

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

This city, this city is haunted

Oh! Walk with us, Oh!
Damn! Walk with us!

City, this city is haunted
By ghosts [Ghosts] from broken homes
Because this city, this city is haunted
There's no hope [Hope] left for these souls [Souls]
