Anthrax – American Pompeii Lyrics

I try to imagine the best place I’ve been

Can I go back again?

Open my eyes, what was no longer exists,

I can’t go back again

I like to pretend that nothing has changed

And never went too far

But it started to lose me like a four-hour movie

I’d already seen

Holding onto my memory of what this used to be

Holding onto my memory of you

Sometimes I tell myself that things are o.k.

Another lie but it makes me feel better

Never as old as I was today

I’m gonna breakdown

In american pompeii

In american pompeii

Break myself just to live this way

Never as old, as I was today

American pompeii

Look in my eyes and see how sick I feel

About what you’ve become

Filthy and twisted like you never existed

I know what you were

Your beauty forgotten under mountains of schism

I don’t want to climb

Giving up my memory of what this used to be

Giving up my memory of you

Sometimes I tell myself that things are o.k.

Another lie but it makes me feel better

Never as old as I was today

I’m gonna breakdown

In american pompeii

In american pompeii

Break myself just to live this way

Never as old, as I was today

American pompeii

Try to imagine the best place I’ve been

Can I go back again

Open my eyes it just no longer exists

I can’t go back again

I’m giving up my memory of what this used to be

Giving up my memory of you
