The Ruins Lyrics – Becoming the Archetype

YouTube video

Verse 1:
So this is how it ends
Before it even starts, yeah
Apprehended by monstrous forms
Skin like feathers caked in mud
Nebulous speech, outstretched arms
Protruding veins dripping blood
Sail across the blackened sea
To the village of the living things
Hollow eyes transfixed on me
The silence deafening

Pre-Chorus:
Standing in the ruins
Our world forsaken
The empty faces of hollow creatures
Longing to awaken
Longing to awaken

Chorus:
Death comes for everyone
It’s in the water, it’s in the air
When every step is a loaded gun
Every breath is a prayer

Verse 2:
Their bodies crumble at the slightest contact
Few have managed to survive
Endless endeavor just to stay intact
Completely hollow inside
I cannot comprehend
What my eyes have seen
Are these the children of men
I was sent to redeem?

Pre-Chorus:
Standing in the ruins
Our world forsaken

Chorus:
Death comes for everyone (Death comes for everyone)
It’s in the water, it’s in the air (It’s in the air)
When every step is a loaded gun (Every step is a loaded gun)
Every breath is a prayer
Death comes for everyone (Death comes for everyone)
It’s in the water, it’s in the air (It’s in the air)
When every step is a loaded gun (Every step is a loaded gun)
Every breath is a prayer

Outro:
Standing in the ruins
Our world forsaken
The empty faces of hollow creatures
Longing to awaken
Longing to awaken
