Architects - Memento Mori lyrics


ad
As above, so below
Dismantled piece by piece
What's left will not decease
As within, so without
The seasons bring relief
Let me live and die in piece
(Let me live and die in piece) [4x]

I will be consumed, returned into the earth
Only passing through, nothing left to hold on to
Like the thaw against the snow, into the undertow
Cut the chord and cast me out
And cast me out

It's a promise that you cannot break
Was your life worth dying for?
The universe survives on, give and take
Death is an open door

It's a promise that you cannot break
Was your life worth dying for?
The universe survives on, give and take
Decay's the only law

As above, so below
Dismantled piece by piece
What's left will not decease
As within, so without
The seasons bring relief
Just let me live and die in piece

(Change, and everything is change
Nothing can be held onto
To the degree that you go with a stream
You see, you are still, you're flowing with it
But to the degree you resist the stream
Then you notice that the current
Is rushing past you and fighting you
So swim with it, go with it
And you're there, you're at rest)

It'll wear you down, through skin and bone
Through skin and bone
It's as if my mind has a mind of its own
Has a mind of its own
[2x]

When my heart skips two beats
(I am hidden deep, fast asleep)
The sea will part, where oceans meet
Finally complete

It's a promise that you cannot break
Was your life worth dying for?
The universe survives on, give and take
Death is an open door

It's a promise that you cannot break
Was your life worth dying for?
The universe survives on, give and take
Decay's the only law

Swan song
A declaration of endlessness
I swear I will not look back
As I return into the black
When the veil lifts, how will I know?
How will I know?
Will I see God?

As above, so below
Dismantled piece by piece
What's left will not decease
As within, so without
The seasons bring relief
Just let me live and die in piece

(You can't hang onto yourself
You don't have to try not to hang onto yourself
It can't be done, and that is salvation
Memento Mori; be mindful of death)
