The Here and Now Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level 록스타 (2017-04-13)
1. Day in Day Out (3:10)
The years I put into this

It could take a second
To tear down years of work
And we won't get these days
Back again (back again)
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted
Someone, tell me how I've ended up here
With nobody watching over me?
We need to bring back the days we used to love
Before all the colour drains away
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those (sing it loud)
Where did they go?
The days we used to know
Where did they go?
Have I forgotten what it feels like?
Where did they go / where did they go
The days we used to know
Where did they go / where did they go
Have I forgotten what it feels like?
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted
2. Learn to Live (4:01)
Learn to Live
Architects
Pick yourself up
Stop loving
Start living
Don't get held back
That's where they want you to be
I never paid much attention to them
Every time they pushed us aside
We got back up again
Yeah we made it through the rain
Just to live another day without them
Pick yourself back up
And learn to live
Stop caring
Stop thinking
The grass is greener on the other side
Don't give up on life
Never back down
Do this for yourself
You don't need anyone
To get you where you deserve
I never paid much attention
Every time they pushed us aside
We got back up again
Yeah we made it through the rain
Just to live another day without them
Every time they pushed us aside
We got back up again
Yeah, we made it through the rain
Just to live another day without them
We are the ones you left out in the rain
Come back tomorrow and we'll be here again
We are the ones you left out in the rain
Come back tomorrow and we'll be here again
We don't need you
We don't need you
We don't need you
We made it through the rain
Just to live another day
We made it through the rain
Just to live another day
We made it through the rain
Just to live another day
We made it through the rain
Just to live another day
3. Delete, Rewind (3:08)
We are the misguided youth
They've backed us into a corner
All our lives we've been infected
They should have never had a chance

Because they're forcing us
To believe
In a world that we shouldn't trust
Delete, rewind and try to change this
State of mind

Give us something to believe in
Give us something to make our own
Give us something to believe in
Give us something to make our own

When will we stand up
And choose our paths

This is the end of the world
At least that's what we're told
This is the end of the world
Board up the windows
And lock your doors

Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

This is getting old

We are the misguided youth
We sat back and lost our voices

Delete, rewind and try to change this
State of mind
Delete, rewind and try to change this
State of mind

Because they're forcing us
To believe
In a world that we shouldn't trust
Delete, rewind and try to change this
State of mind
And hopefully you knew it all
You knew it all along

Delete, rewind
Delete, rewind

When will we stand up
We've been through enough
When will we stand up
Have we let them take the best of us
4. BTN (3:58)

Architects
It's run down
The back of my head
The back of my mind
About a hundred thousand times
And I can't
Seem to shake it
Seem to shake it
Addiction's tying me down

Pull me under
I can't take it much longer
Pull me under
And it will never stop

You've got a hold on me
Like a constant need inside for nicotine
I've been through this patch before
You've got a hold on me
Like a constant need inside for nicotine
I've been through this patch before
I've been through this patch before

I'm lost and alone in my head
And I can't make sense of myself
I need to find a simple way
To make this pain just disappear
I know I'll never feel
Safe in my own skin

Pull me under
I can't take it much longer
Pull me under
And it will never stop

You've got a hold on me
Like a constant need inside for nicotine
I've been through this patch before

You've got a hold on me
Like a constant need inside for nicotine
I've been through this patch before

No matter how long I'm gone for
It's at the back of my mind
Another sleepless night
Somebody get me home

I'm so far down
And there's nothing anyone can say to me
I'm so down, I'm so down

You've got a hold on me
Like a constant need inside for nicotine
I've been through this patch before
5. An Open Letter to Myself (3:16)
Always the one with a face one
Always the one with never enough
He was the boy that broke our trust
Because he was never around enough
We sit around and hear these stories
Wishing we were somewhere else
How I wish that I could find the words to save this

My so called friend
My so called friend
When will we see you again

I was the one with the face on
I was the one with never enough
I was the boy that broke your trust
Because I was never around enough

I sit around and tell these stories
Wishing I was somewhere else

Oh how I wish I found the words to save this

My so called friend
My so called friend

I wish I found the words to save this
I'm pushing it out, out
Find the words to save this
I'm pushing it out, out, out

My so called friend
My so called friend
When will we see you again

My so called friend
My so called friend
When will we see you again
When will we see you again
6. The Blues (3:17)
Never, never lose sight
Of what you started it for
No matter what comes in between
And I used to think
That I knew better than those around me
But something changed along the way
And you
7. Red Eyes (4:17)
I can't
Seem to get a hold of this
This mess
Seems to be taking
It's grasp on every
Everything that we once worked for
And I can't bear to watch
Everything just fall around me,

And I've been struggling for so long
So long
And I've been
Looking for a way
To make everything just fall into place

And when the red glazes over my eyes
There's nothing anyone can say or do
Just you try and stop me
Try and stop what I've become
Oh how I wish there was a way

And I've been struggling for so long
So long
And I've been
Looking for a way
To make everything just fall into place

Everything just falls into place
Every word I ever said
Is making sense again
When the red glazes over my eyes
There's nothing anyone can say or
Say or do

And still today I cannot tell
Dream's from nightmares anymore
And still today I cannot tell
Dream's from nightmares anymore, anymore

And i've been struggling for so long
So long
And i've been
Looking for a way
To make everything just fall into place

If you reject the ones you love,
You'll find yourself cold and broken again
If you reject the ones you love,
You'll find yourself cold and broken again
(again, again, again)
If you reject the ones you love,
You'll find yourself cold and broken again
If you reject the ones you love,
You'll find yourself cold and broken again
(again, again, again)
8. Stay Young Forever (feat. Andrew Neufeld of Comeback Kid) (3:02)
Stay Young Forever
Architects
Stay young forever
You've done this to yourself or so it seems
You left behind everything
All your friends and all your family
Does it not feel slightly daunting?
How can you still sleep at night?
When you must be able to hear them fight?
It's all about you
All about you
All about the way you choose to live

You still put smoke in your lungs, despite not giving enough
You still put smoke in your lungs, despite not giving enough

How did it come to this?

Is there any point to this? are you even listening to us?

You still left everyone you loved
Crushed, broken, snapped straight in half
You still left everyone you loved
Crushed, broken, snapped straight in half

You made your choice now turn and get out
You made your choice now turn and get out

How do you sleep at night?
It's all about you, it's all about you
How do you sleep at night?
It's all about you, it's all about you

You still put smoke in your lungs, despite not giving enough
You still put smoke in your lungs, despite not giving enough

You left every one you loved
Crushed, broken, snapped straight in half
9. Heartburn (3:37)
Burn everything you have
And leave it all behind
Lose all your inhibitions
I'll take the mess you made
And make it beautiful
If time only stood still forever
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile again
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile again
This moment that we're in
Is slow and disappointing
Time will never stand still forever
If you take this chance we got
And we'll make it beautiful
If you'd take my word
I'd be your savior
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile again
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile again
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
Hold out your hand and lean upon me
I'll be the one to make you smile again
Burn everything you have
And leave it all behind
Lose all your inhibitions
I'll took the mess you made
And I made it beautiful
Oh if time only stood still forever, forever
10. Year in Year Out/Up and Away (feat. Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan) (7:27)
year in year out/up and away - architects
i’m astounded i’m looking for a reason to leave
i’m astounded i’m looking for a reason to leave
the years i’ve put into everything i have
everything i am
i’m needing to find some peace of mind
to stop me leaving it all behind
these eyes have seen everything
but i’ll keep looking
it’s time to realize that my head
is trying to take me down
it’s time to realize that my head
is trying to push
trying to push me out
i’m screaming out for help
months
years
nobody hears
i’m screaming out i’m screaming out
it’s time to realize that my head
is trying to take me down
i’m screaming out to no-one
i’m astounded still looking for a reason to leave
i’m astounded still looking for a reason to leave
the years i’ve put into everything i have
everything i am
i’m needing to find some peace of mind
to stop me leaving it all behind
these eyes have seen everything
but i’ll keep looking
it’s time to take a step back
look at my life and
find a stable place to hide
it’s time to take a step back
look at my life and find
a stable place to hide
it’s time to take a step back
look at my life and
find a stable place to hide
stable place to hide
live everyday like your last
and take nothing for granted
i’ll live everyday like my last
and i’ll take none of this for granted
love as you want to be loved
and live the way that you know you should
keep the good ones by your side
you never know when they might fly up and away
love as you want to be loved
and live the way that you know you should
keep the good ones by your side
you never know when they might fly up and away

11. Devil's Island (4:07)
This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
X2

The city streets, you used to love,
Are bruised and broken are black and blue.
On our tv's, miles away.
On our doorsteps with no reason why.

Take it back. X6
This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was. X2
Remember this, x2
Take it back. X3
You want a voice, but your voices sound like violence.
You don't, you don't deserve this life,
You don't, you don't deserve this.

This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was,
Oh, a bleak projection of absent minds.

You want a voice, but your voices sound like violence.
You shout so loud but all I hear is silence.
The city streets that you show no love are bruised and broken,
Because of you. X3

This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was. X2
12. Untitled (3:29)
Untitled
Architects
The long walk home,
back to a no name town.
Where people pass me by
in red and white lines.
Your only son can't make you proud.
The moon and stars, this frozen clock.

And if in years to come we can talk like friends,
can I close my eyes and wake up then?

Drown out the sound of adulthood
with songs that fell from out of space.
At seventeen I wouldn't dare to dream
because hope's a dangerous thing.

I won't thank god, I'll thank my friends,
for sticking by till we're home again.
What matters most to me belongs to you.
Hope's a dangerous thing.

I pinch myself to see,
that if this curtain drops, this isn't me.
Pack my bags, no time to waste.
We leave no trace of us.
Still my pillow rings.

Day In Day Out - Architects
The years I put into this
It could take a second
To tear down years of work
And we won't get these days
Back again (back again)
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted
Someone tell me how I've ended up here
With nobody watching over me
We need to bring back the days we used to love
Before all the colour drains away
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
I can't understand why I've been put here
I'm stuck in a world of sympathy
With nobody watching over me
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those not living in the here and now
To all those (sing it loud)
Where did they go
The days we used to know
Where did they go
Have I forgotten what it feels like
Where did they go where did they go
The days we used to know
Where did they go where did they go
Have I forgotten what it feels like
And the words roll over and over
Yet our hearts will never be lifted
