I wanna bother God
I wanna feel the ground beneath my feet
But I’ve got a smile full of broken teeth

All the doves have flown away
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

I know it’s not enough
Why does defeat always taste so bittersweet
I just wanna live and die in peace

The flower that never blossoms is quickly forgotten
It must be gold if it’s glistening
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

All the doves have flown away
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

Fly high
‘Cause the ravens are here to stay
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself in a cloud of
Dead butterflies

The difference between these guys and the other bands that are "switching up their style" is you can clearly still tell this is architects like they changed it up but disney get rid of the stuff that made them who they are

This is an insanely good song. It has so much power and energy. Hadn't had that kind of feeling in a while.

Thank you. thank you thank you i lost my brother to cancer and the pain of the loss only gets heavier with every day, and there's nobody who i can truly talk about this, because the only person who truly understood me is now gone, and nothing helps. thank you for still making music after your own horrible loss, because i know that others too keep one foot in front of the other and keep going, keep creating, and i will do too. thank you for making music that expresses what i myself can't. thank you.

How badly I want to see Architects live again. How badly I want to sit in the Royal Albert Hall and listen to the whole Album with an Orchestra. This would be incredible.

Upon my first listen of this album, I definitely noticed it was different than their previous work but literally, the more I listen to this varied record, the better it gets and it's not hard to appreciate the incredible songwriting/production! At first I thought I liked holy hell better but I feel this record tops it and Tom would be beyond proud of you guys for keeping his music going strong! 🔥

Whole drums works on new Architects album were engineered by Adam Nolly Getgood, ex Periphery. Great work.

I feel a bit silly leaving a comment but, by the off chance Dan may see this, I just wanted to say thank you. This songs really touched me in a special way. In December 2020 I lost my older sister to a murder suicide and it’s been really hard to cope with it and why it even happened. This song is really beautiful and speaks to me. I’m so sorry for your loss Dan, I know it’s been a few years now but, this song brings me to tears and you’ve moved me, Thank you.

I knew as soon as i heard the intro that the focus would be melodic vocals, which is fine by as those have tended to be my favourite parts of songs on recent albums and continues the trend of the decreasing 'Blegh' count. I'll have to have a listen to the rest of the album.

Does anyone know what they’re using to achieve these orchestral/string sounds? Did they record an actual orchestra with session musicians? I don’t see any orchestra info listed in the credits. Either way they sound fucking incredible. If they used plugins to program these sounds, I am buying them asap lol.

This song has an effect on me that nobody can explain but me. It makes me breakdown cause it reminds me of my father who passed. I plan on writing a song about him that's in the style of this song. Maybe it will be the way I cope with his passing. Thank you architect for this master piece I really needed it. ❤️❤️

I usually don't like when bands change up their music too much because it just doesn't sound as good, but Architects is the exception where it always gets better and better.

@Deric Deandre I don't think they sound like BMTH, I think they now just sound like a more toned down and mellow version of themselves, and I'm personally not a fan of it.

@Deric Deandre not wrong at all. You're just in denial. Architects use to have their own unique and technical sound.. Now, unfortunately. They sound like a generic clone of a band who's already done it. So sad.
