I do my best but everything seems ominous
Not feeling blessed, quite the opposite
This shouldn’t feel so monotonous
It never rains but it pours

We’re just a bunch of fucking animals
But we’re afraid of the outcome
Don’t cry to me because the fiction that we’re living in
Says I should pull the pin

Should I just pull the pin?

I dug my heels
I thought that I could stop the rot
The ground gave way
Now I’ve lost the plot
Fucked it again
That was all I’ve got
It never rains but it pours

Life is just a dream within a….

Buried under dirt
A diamond in the mud
Infinity is waiting there
‘Cause nobody can burn a glass cathedral

….dream within a dream within a….

    Last three songs they released sound like a Linking Park on steroids! Wtf? I really loved their unique sound, that's why people were crazy about them! Now Architects are no more than just another cookie cutter metalcore band... Architects R.I.P

    Sooo the album's leaked :D (don't have a go at me, I'm probably gonna buy it too when its out). Here are my first thoughts: Impermanence has a pretty dull chorus but the second verse has cool chuggy bits and HOOO BOY the Winston McCall guest spot will be an absolute cum deployer when its played live

    They truly restructured their band, and I love it. I feel like after Tom died, they wanted to try and recreate what they were, which wasn’t possible without him there. This sounds like they are being themselves, and it works. That’s why I personally prefer “all our gods have abandoned us” to “holy hell”.
