Architects – From the Wilderness

From the Wilderness

[Verse 1]
There is no endgame
So whisper the truth and pass on the blame
Just put us out of our misery
This defeat is a victory
We're burning out, we're fading away
A failed evolution
Is the problem the solution that they've been searching for?

[Chorus]
We're waiting for the world to save itself
'Cause nothing is built to last
We're writing our epitaph
So reset and start again
'Cause we all know how this ends
Before long we'll be dead and gone

[Verse 2]
A thorn in the side of the earth
Where do you draw the line?
A flaw in the design
The rest is history
This defeat is a victory
We're burning out, we're fading away

[Interlude]
We live in an infinite growth paradigm.
Nothing grows forever, it's not possible.
As a great psychologist James Hillman wrote
"The only thing that grows in the human body
After a certain age is cancer",
and I think that, that's clearly what we're seeing
at the end of human industrial civilization
with the population approaching seven billion

[Bridge]
We're all guilty as sin
I feel it, I feel it under my skin
Always up in arms without lifting a finger
Lifting a finger
We may be infinite, but this world is not
Something that we once knew, that we long forgot
That we long forgot

[Chorus]
We're waiting for the world to save itself
'Cause nothing is built to last
We're writing our epitaph
So reset and start again
'Cause we all know how this ends
Before long we'll be dead and gone

[Outro]
We're all guilty as sin
I feel it, I feel it under my skin
Always up in arms without lifting a finger
Lifting a finger
We may be infinite, but this world is not
Something that we once knew, that we long forgot
