(Garaventz / Kaye)

Here in this town of dirt and greed
Playground where devils play
Here where I had the bad, bad luck to be born
Here I must stay

Here I belong
Here I will die
Caught in the web of love
I can't escape
Won't even try
My fate is tied with the Corrupt Ones
Especially with one guy

He came around when I was down
Opened new worlds for me
Gave him my love
And dreamed of breaking my chains of misery

But I was wrong
I soon would learn
Thinking I'd leave this town
Here he found wealth
Money to burn
Not like the nowhere
Where he came from
And he would never return

Here I belong
Here I will die
Caught in the web of love
I can't escape
Won't even try
My fate is tied with the Corrupt Ones
Especially with one guy

Especially with one guy
