Today’s track of the day is a special one. As most people are aware, Architects‘ guitarist Tom Searle sadly passed away following a lengthy cancer battle. Our track of the day’s lyrics were written by Tom and the track is taken from the band’s recently released All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us. We’ll leave the lyrics below the video for you all to think about as personaly, we at AltCorner think they are beautiful.
This is a wake-up call.
No rise without the fall.
Facing the great divide, you can run but you can’t hide.
I met the devil and God and couldn’t tell them apart. I thought I found the end, but it was only the start. I’ve heard it all before. Aren’t you tired of all of the violence inside of you? Just let go.
Gravity, hold on to me. So come and wash us away.
Just thank fuck that we don’t last forever. It’s now or never.
Is this the catalyst? Just let me burn the bridge, that leads me nowhere.
Because it’s gone and it’s never coming back.
But make no mistake, It’s just a matter of time before the wave breaks.
So stand your ground. The earth will shake.
So twist the knife, ‘cause I am finally awake.
I’ve heard it all before. Aren’t you tired of all of the violence inside of you? Just let go. Well, what are you waiting for? Aren’t you tired of all of the violence inside of you? It’s all you know.
Gravity, hold on to me.
RIP Tom Searle.
