about

We all hate our hometowns, right? Maybe it's not so much the hatred of hometown, but rather the memories that go along with it.

lyrics

This city sleeps on the grave of its founder.
Ghosts, they dance around her.
Haunted by the love of her past,
Encased in unbreakable glass
"Oh, tragedy."
What has she become?

I have reason to believe my soul will rest inside these grounds,
Hollowed out, dedicated. My soul will rest upon this town.
I'm never coming down.

Broken is the home,
In which I sleep alone.
Leave me to the rubble,
In which lies my struggle
The foundation they built has crumbled
This very city's been humbled.

This city is a grave of shattered dreams
In this city love has lost it's sting
I can't live without the sight of its demise
For along with it, my soul dies
All of which I've known and love
Just for a glimpse of heaven above

This is the death of the mighty
Again, she dies nightly.
"Save me, Darling, save me."

How can I forget who raised me?
And with my fate in her hands,
Keep dancing Darling, dance.
