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….

    Dear Architects. This is again an amazing song. But I think you kinda reached the end of a street. Can´t sound bigger, tighter, harder...This way you can´t go on without repeating yourself. So, what comes next? Maybe you can reinvent this amazing band. Dare to break out of the Box.

    @Antonio Velazques like this, but the vocal is a more rougher except maybe for the pre chorus and the chorus itself. Yea maybe that's the explanation I can come up with it.

    Can we just say how much better architects are than the basic normie emo bands? Like sam Carter's vocal range is amazing and one of kind that you couldn't forget, the instrumentals slap hard and actually sound really good in this. Then you get those cringey people like matt cutshall who are stuck on has been bands and go on about emo culture when actual reality is that emo is dead and djent is the new hype. Honestly we have breakdowns too? You know that thing that MCR couldn't never perfect the art of. Honestly being elitist here but that's because I'm sick of all this overrated has been pop punk shit when they're are amazing bands like northlane, this band and many more.

    I love this track but I have this little, inconsequential pet peeve about it: You can burn a glass cathedral, glass gets destroyed by fire, guys. I would have personally gone with /nobody can hide in a glass cathedral/.

    When listening to music, I think the importance of the arrangements of musical sections goes unnoticed. Arrangement is really important. You can have a lot of good musical parts to a song, but if they aren't put together in a way that makes sense, it does not work. This song is a good example of a very well arranged song.

    yet elitist will still complain because the song does't have riffs and breakdowns like Early Grave or Naysayer. I agree that Animals is a song which is well composed and filled with catchy moments and hooks
