Architects – An Ordinary Extinction

An Ordinary Extinction

[Verse 1]
Do you feel at home in limbo?
Hiding a broken vow
A phantom at the window
Can you swallow the shame?
Has your courage been burnt out, faded away?
There won't be a saviour in sight, but it's okay
'Cause we're comfortable

[Chorus]
We're stood at the edge of the world
Seize the snakes
They're living a lie
Blinded by a candle, they're saying goodbye
We're stood at the edge of the world

[Verse 2]
When the clock runs down to zero
We'll stand up and take a bow
So quick to play the hero
Are you fanning the flames?
Are you torching the lighthouse stood in the way?
Complicity burning so bright, yet we delay
Are you culpable?

[Chorus]
Seize the snakes
They're living a lie
Blinded by a candle, they're saying goodbye
We're stood at the edge of the world
Drag the lake
When the water runs dry
We'll be slaves to the anchor, the Devil may cry
We're stood at the edge of the world

[Post-Chorus]
We're stood at the edge of the world

[Bridge]
Nothing is holy, we all take the blame
Crumbling slowly, the cliff face belongs to the ocean
So run for your life
Do you remember the tip of the spear?
The edge of the knife?
We're freshly dismembered but won't shed a tear
So run for your life

[Chorus]
We're stood at the edge of the world
Seize the snakes
They're living a lie
Blinded by a candle, they're saying goodbye
We're stood at the edge of the world
Drag the lake
When the water runs dry
We'll be slaves to the anchor, the Devil may cry
We're fighting to stay alive, how can we all survive?
No second chances, we're stood at the edge of the world

[Outro]
We're stood at the edge of the world, yeah
We're fighting to stay alive
