Architects – Black Lungs

Black Lungs

[Verse 1]
Do you crush your hope when you hope to die?
Are you sleeping deep in a hurricane?
I'm facing the arms again, it's a fill, we're crawling, all of us
Will you fall on that sword and the second coming?
Did you taste the action too?
Is this why he's dying in our arms?

[Pre-Chorus]
No wheels are turning
What would you do to stay alive if the planet was burning?

[Chorus]
You wanna make it a reality
Black lungs for the young if we dare to breathe
Sure sounds like heaven to me
We gotta cut the roots to kill the weeds
Some place to go if we don't believe
Good Lord, it's enough to plague a saint

[Verse 2]
Give us a Judas, then we can stay and fight
Yeah, we all pretend we're the renegades
So wash this away, get ready for the anger
Take your welcome sight, it's running out
There's no doubt that the end is coming
Did you taste the action, can you taste the dust?
Is this why he's dying in our arms?

[Pre-Chorus]
No wheels are turning
What would you do to stay alive if the planet was burning?

[Chorus]
You wanna make it a reality
Black lungs for the young if we dare to breathe
Sure sounds like heaven to me
We gotta cut the roots to kill the weeds
Some place to go if we don't believe
Good Lord, it's enough to plague a saint

[Bridge]
Good Lord, it's enough to plague a saint
Post-love, post-truth, justice lays burned out
Black pack, ready for the guillotine
We can all play guilty when they ask
Where were you when the drugs spread the wings of the Phoenix?
They cut the wings off the phoenix, oh
Where will we rest on the world from the vulture and the girl and the fucking [?]
[?] when we're holding on for dear life

[Chorus]
You wanna make it a reality
Black lungs for the young if we dare to breathe
Sure sounds like heaven to me
We gotta cut the roots to kill the weeds
Some place to go if we don't believe
Good Lord, it's enough to plague a saint

[Post-Chorus]
It's enough to plague a saint
It's enough to plague a saint
It's enough to plague a saint

[Outro]
Oh
Oh, we can all play guilty when they ask
"Where were you when the guns took the wings of the Phoenix?"
