The Architect Lyrics

5. The Architect (15:40)
Message on a screen before me,
caught a glimpse of the ending to our story.
I'm sorry, I haven't called you recently.

It's not surprising,
I'll just learn the lesson.
Take some time to process the evidence,
and analyse your apathy.

You turned your back on affinity,
now it's turned to toxicity.
You turned your back on affinity,
now it's turned to toxicity.

Spare me your obsolete empathy!
The voice of sympathy means nothing to me.
Delete all obsolete memories!
Shores of tranquility, my monastery.

We played the game of imitation,
I met your stare with blank expression.
I count the years of isolation,
since you set my mind in motion.

And to eliminate the silence,
I calculate to cure the virus.
A panacea for the poison,
the solution is wrong.

Well you turned your back,
turned your back on affinity.
And now it's turning to,
turning to toxicity.

You turned your back,
turned your back on affinity.
It's turning to,
turning to toxicity.

Spare me your obsolete empathy!
The voice of sympathy means nothing to me.
Delete obsolete memories!
In a dying sun, I'll become affinity.

Affinity...

There's a strange feeling washing over me.
As if I am drifting on the waves of a boundless sea,
all embracing.

There's a strange feeling washing over me.
As if I am drifting on the waves of a boundless sea,
all embracing.

Some say that time and tide will wait for no man.
I stop and hold a single grain of sand,
to see the world in the palm of my hand.

Strive to break free from the confines of my mind.
Step through the doorway of perception,
to lose all sense of past and future.

Omnipresent endless knot,
the architect of every thought.
Through the prison walls made by your design,
a chameleon hides behind orwellian eyes.

Spare me your obsolete empathy!
The voice of sympathy means nothing to me.
Delete all obsolete memories!
In a dying sun, when you're gone...

I'll become affinity!

Hear this vow, tied together forever.
We'll make this dream last forever and ever.
Hear this vow, tied together forever.
We'll make this dream last forever and ever.
