Alexisonfire - This Could Be Anywhere In The World Lyrics




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

[Dallas:] The streets are in distress
The sun suffocates behind darkened skies

[George:] The grass is growing on top of my feet
I'm sinking, won't be long, before I'm too deep to run

[Dallas:] The line up seems endless
Underneath the salvation signs.

[George:] 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).

[George:] Every step I take I leave a small piece
Of myself behind. Soon there will be nothing left.

[Dallas:] The cracks in the pavement,
Match the cracks in their weathered skin

[George:] The sky's a brick wall
The ground's a juggernaut
Each day they get a bit closer
Between them, I am caught.

[Dallas:] I stare in amazement,
I can't believe this is where I live.

[George:] 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).

[George:] Our steps seal fate, our steps seal fate.

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

[Dallas:] This city, this city is haunted.

[George:] Oh! Walk with us. Oh! Down. Walk with us.

[Chorus:]
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).

    2019 and still rockin'!

  7. AdamRising

    This is the pinnacle of the scream/sing rock of early/mid 2000s...it simply doesn’t get any better folks. George has such a heavyweight scream and pairs nice with Dallas’s clean singing angelic voice...what a Fn band!

  8. adonisx82

    I don't normally head bang or whatever like that when i'm listening to music, but this song just gets me goin

  9. Requires Pylons

    honestly, the most important discovery of my life back in 2004 and I turn 30 next year. Alexisonfire is therapy beyond recognition

  10. No Way

    Dallas is one of the best.

  11. april tandon

    😂🥰

  12. Вован

    This is in my playlist but... i dont know if this is even metal? It seems like progressive. Unless you insist that screaming makes metal. Which it doesnt.

  13. Zach The Polisaur

    When ever your looking for alex caught fire and this song always shows up.... great song and band but i want my zelda streams man

  14. inflames70two

    Never let this shit die.

  15. Pheel Macababe

    this is the shit that helped me through high school

  16. tutorial de batata

    This town is his cause burying my neck
    This air it takes off, without rushing, without haste

    The streets are in distress,
    The sun suffocates behind darkened skies
    The grass is growing under my feet
    I'm thinking it wont be long before you get

    The line-up seems endless,
    Underneath the salvation sign
    We are the dead ones, we are the lost cause
    We are the people who will not blame ourselves from this cause

    The city, the city is haunted,
    By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (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 skies a brick wall, the clouds a juggernaut
    Each day as we know
    I stare in amazement, I can't believe this is where I live
    Every breath I take, I feel my lungs fail

    The city, the city is haunted,
    By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (homes)
    Because this city, this city is haunted
    There's no hope (hope) left for these souls (souls)

    Our steps seal fate
    Our steps seal fate
    (this is our celebration, come join the lost souls)
    (this is our celebration, come join the lost souls)

    The city, the city is haunted
    Walk with us

    The city, the city is haunted,
    By ghosts (ghosts) from broken homes (homes)
    Because this city, this city is haunted
    There's no hope (hope) left for these souls (souls)

    I still have the album this song was on. I still play that CD. It's been over 10 years but it's still brilliant. Many house moves later and I've kept my old laptop just to play this CD. Think it's time to download the album 😂

  36. Guerilla Tactix

    Worked their show at Bud Stage June 15th and 16th of 2019, it was awesome from the lawns. For anyone that was there, I was the security guard who jumped into the mosh pit with you guys! :D

    Ron Martineau

    Damien Trujillo

    This is totally my favorite song from them.

    misterblister 16

    i got the album, sounds great!

    WhiteSnake9191

    2019 and I heard this song on a stream and loved it, just discovered them

  42. Ulfric Sombrage

    10 years have passed, this is still awesome

  43. Yeah No

    I remember the first time I heard this song on Kerrang! TV - it was like a revelation. I'd never heard anything like this song before and I've never heard anything like it since.

    It's one of those tunes that seems almost timeless in a weird way. Still evokes a certain feeling in me over a decade since first hearing it.

    Yeah No

    It's a shame though, because I couldn't get into much of their other stuff. Apart from Boiled Frogs and a couple of other tracks, nothing else really did it for me. None of their other tracks came even close to this one.

    It really seems like this song was a one off.

  44. Gage B-Bird

    This was a very good song in my childhood! When I was 6

  45. Jack Brown

    This was the song that got me into Alexisonfire back in the day, still a great song

    Misheard Lyrics

    Jack Brown hi

  46. Kirill Filin

    still love them in 19

  47. Julie B

    who is here in 2019?

  48. Alessandro Tioli

    Was listening to this band when I was 15-16, realising now at 29 that I was so ahead of the times compared to my mates, kinda explains the constant loneliness that I went through my whole life. Felt like a high schooler would if he was put with infants 👶

  49. Huy Yang

    I get so mad when someone pronounced it as "Alex Is On Fire" - "ALEXIS ON FIRE"!

  50. Huy Yang

    2019 anyone?

    はんぺん

    Huy Yang
    yeah

  51. Rob B.
