Alexandria & Me

Took you downtown, Alexandria
Want to see something would scare ya
Drove up and down the megalopolis
From a dead-eyed party and it came to this
Decayed hotel, zombies on the bench
A flowered carpet, a nauseating stench
This is the terror, this is where we peek
Behind the beauty that we seek

Just another ghost story
The Alexandria and me

Took you downtown, Alexandria
Want to see something would scare ya
It’s worse than terror, when you live without
Some inspiration to kill the doubt
‘Cause every person, place and thing
Starts to die if it can’t sing
Just an echo rolling in our veins
Dying and crying out our names

Just another ghost story
The Alexandria and me

Do you remember when we used to gleam?
I used to cry and you used to scream
’N everywhere was a mystic place
Devour your body, you’d kiss my face
Now there’s a doll in the doorway, her dresses never keep
There’s a bat in the ballroom, trying to sleep
The rooms are dark and all boarded up
And filled with zombies to eat you up

Just another ghost story
The Alexandria and me
Just another ghost story
Alexandria and me
