"A Wasted Hymn" (Acoustic) by Architects


Waiting for a sign
Washed up on the shoreline
I’ll always carry the cross
But all is not lost

I just can’t relate
A crack in the floodgate
Life comes at a cost
But all is not lost

Is this penance for my sins?
I gave everything for this phantom limb
Holy ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Now it’s time to sink or swim
I’ve got nothing except this wasted hymn
Holy ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Taking back what’s mine
But it’s lost to the skyline
A bridge I cannot cross
But all is not lost

Now there’s no escape
God, what a sorry state
Love comes at a cost
But all is not lost

Can you feel the empty space?
Can you feel the fire at the gates?
Can you live a life worth dying for?

I'm no vocalist, so it always blows my mind that someone could have such an aggressive and powerful voice, while also having a beautiful and gentle side. Sam truly is a special vocalist

They should release a soft acoustic album just for shits and giggles, top the charts, go platinum, get all the pop fans on their bandwagon, then pull the old bait and switch with their heaviest album yet
