Do you cross your heart when you hope to die?
Are you sleeping deep in the hurricane?
IVs in the arm
Forgetting to feel
We’re crawling on all fours
Will you fall on that sword at the second coming?
You’re gonna taste the ash and dust
‘Cause this world is dying in our arms

Now the wheels are turning
What would you do to stay alive
If the planet was burning?

You wanna make your hell a reality?
Black lungs for the young if they dare to breathe
Sure sounds like heaven to me
You’ve gotta cut the roots to kill the weeds
No place to go if we don’t believe
Good lord, it’s enough to plague a saint

Give us a Judas steer we can deify
Yeah, we all pretend we’re the renegades
So wash us away
Garroted by a halo
Take a bow
‘Cause time’s running out
There’s no doubt that the end is coming
You’re gonna taste the ash
You’re gonna taste the dust
‘Cause this world is dying in our arms

Post love
Post truth
Justice lays bound and black bagged
Ready for the guillotine
We can all plead guilty when they ask
‘Where were you when the Gods clipped the wings of the Phoenix?’

They clipped the wings of the Phoenix
When will we wrestle the world from the fools and their gold
And their fucking covenant?
We’ll be waiting
Will enough be enough when we’re holding on for dear life?

    This is awesome it reminds me of mid career In Flames a lot. I used to not like this band but the last few albums and especially all your gods have abandoned you, this fucking band kicks ass. Now I am definitely definitely a fan. Love what this band has become. Truly awesome guys keep kicking ass!!!!

      @NickLFG yes, you do bring up a good point that i forgot to mention. it IS important to change your water often. bacteria could certainly lead to debilitating lung infections. but im pretty sure a CLEAN bong would be better than paper/bowl. the water cleans a lot of the gunky shit out of the smoke. theres no filtration with paper/bowl. unless one uses a cig filter IN the joint. which could also be a VERY viable option. thanks for bringing that up :)

      That’s not true. Smoke papers. Unless you keep your bong spotless and change the water after every sesh, mold and bacteria grows.

    Hm dont like the new guitar riffs. Sounds less aggressive and more like an old metal band. Maybe its starts growing on me but its also time to accept that their prime time as a band is over. It started wir hollown crown and ended with doomsday. It was a good and tragic run. :/

      "real fans" would maybe respect their choices and experiments. I'm not a big fan of this one too tbh but architects can't drop another All our gods have abandoned us 3.0. They need to do something new. Otherwise it would be boring. If you listened to the new stuff they played in the royal albert hall you can clearly hear that the new album also brings some heavier stuff. Don't worry

    Some may disagree and thats fine, but to me, this song sounds like a plead to put down false "Gods" and bend the knee to Christ, because this world is ending. Reasons for this: - "Will you fall on the sword at the second coming" - Second coming of Christ. Falling on the sword basically means to kill yourself. Either to save someone else, or your own suicide. I think it means, within the context, will you kill yourself by your own deeds? Will you have killed yourself because of your choices? - "No place to go if we dont believe" - We have no hope if we dont believe - "What would you do to stay alive if the planet was burning?" - Rhetorical question. The planet is burning. The end is coming. The only way to eternal life if bending the knee to Christ. - "Give a Judas steer to deify" - Judas betrayed Jesus. Steer represents the golden Ox that God's people deified in the wilderness after they were delivered from Egypt - "Take a bow 'cause time's running out, there's no doubt that the end is coming" - Bow before Christ before its too late - "You're gonna taste the ash, you're gonna taste the dust" - else youre going to be destroyed. - "We can all plead guilty when they ask "Where were you when the Gods clipped the wings off the Phoenix?"" - Where were you when these false Judas Deities maimed your salvation? We can plead guilty because we allowed it to happen/partook ourselves. - "When will we wrestle the world from the fools and their gold and the fucking covenant?" - When will we take a stand for what is right? We "have to cut the root to kill the weeds". Take the world back from these fools and their gold and their false covenant. Thank you. God bless you.
