lyrics

i'm afraid of this town
I'm afraid of this town

If I try to leave it won't let me go
If I lose my way it won't lead me home
I'm afraid of this place

I'm afraid of this town
This forsaken town
When it's dark I can't find my way
Search for a light or a trace of day
I keep running into allies every one's a maze
it feels like I've been circling round and round for days

Empty windows in abandoned stores
Ashes rising up from its pours
I can feel a beating underground, a pulse beneath my feet
the subway cars are grinding like the gnashing of its teeth

And in the street
the people pass me by
they do not see me
Don't look me in the eye
Don't look me in the eye...

I'm afraid ...

I'm afraid of this town
this dirty faced clown
Waiting here with my memories
of the time when you were here with me
When we wandered through the allies and we were amazed
the possibilities we wore as lightly as our age
The mysteries behind each waiting door
The hidden stairwells we did explore

And I won't leave without her
No I will not leave without her
On this I stake my soul
On this I stake my soul

And I can not leave without her
No I can not leave without her
Cuz I've no where else to go
No where else to go
