It's getting hard to breathe in here
What I would give to be set free
This darkness surrounds me
They're coming for us
Take careful aim
I know you won't miss
Avoid eye contact
Shoot the messenger
Pools of blood surround
Don't run and hide this time
But we've made a mistake
A glaring error
We're adrift
Nearly gone
And if you knew you'd get away with it all, what would you do?
In my darkened tomb, I am laid to waste

    General CommentThis song is the favourite song of mine by the Architect's. The time signature changes and the fretting is fucking amazing.

    General CommentDon't get them confused. It's not THE Architects. It's just Architects. The Architects are some weird ass pop band.

    General Commenti think this is about being trapped in a relationship you'd rather not be in.

    It's getting hard to breathe in here
    What I would give to be set free?
    sounds like hes asking for help, someone to help him out of it

    but he feels too attached to let go
    and its getting so awkward

    In my darkened tomb, I am laid to waste
    i rhink that line is him accepting the fact he is stuck in the relationship and there is nothing he can do about it

    im not 100% sure tho
    love architects :)
