I do my best but everything seems ominous
Not feeling blessed, quite the opposite
This shouldn’t feel so monotonous
It never rains but it pours

We’re just a bunch of fucking animals
But we’re afraid of the outcome
Don’t cry to me because the fiction that we’re living in
Says I should pull the pin

Should I just pull the pin?

I dug my heels
I thought that I could stop the rot
The ground gave way
Now I’ve lost the plot
Fucked it again
That was all I’ve got
It never rains but it pours

Life is just a dream within a….

Buried under dirt
A diamond in the mud
Infinity is waiting there
‘Cause nobody can burn a glass cathedral

….dream within a dream within a….

    Hello people from Odessa. Literally a couple of days ago I heard about this group and the first track that I listened to was just Animals ... damn ... I'm so wildly delighted that I can't describe it in words. It's just something and a video sequence and a track and text. Please tell me who sings the chorus and verses, as I understand it is not the same person? Thanks in advance!

    This song is legit what made me a fan of Architects. I had never heard of them until I saw Nik Nocturnal's reaction video of it, and at first I didn't like it, but then it became a song I wanted to hear every day. I've also since started listening to A LOT more metalcore than I ever have before and in the process, discovered a lot of other bands I really like now like Wage War. So thank you, Architects. You guys have really opened me up to a lot more music because of this one song. :)

      Giorno fa

      @scotty c It's probably in B so they wont have to change guitars live it they play something else in B before or after it. There's no C# standard songs in the last setlist so it makes sense, I think the last one they used to play was black blood

    • scotty c

      scotty c

      @Andrew Taylor well if that's true it's easier played in c# playing higher up for lower notes will just mess you up since traditional progressions are usually open 1st through 8

      @scotty c no it's drop B Josh confirmed it on his Instagram. They're just playing in the key of C#. And yeah it's higher than their usual tuning but Holy Hell and Seventh Circle are both in drop B aswell
