Architects Lyrics - Rise Against

Review The Song (1)



Are there no fighters left here anymore?
Are we the generation we've been waiting for?
Or are we patiently burning, waiting to be saved?

Our heroes, our icons have mellowed with age.
Following rules that they once disobeyed.
They're now being led when they used to lead the way

Do you still believe in all the things that you stood by before?
(That you stood by before.)
I hope they're on the front lines, or at home keeping score?
Do you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate?
(Bricks that seal your fate.)
Or would you rather be the architect of what we might create?

(Go!)

They laid out the blueprints,
They poured down a base
Concrete solutions to slow our decay.
sponsored links
But when they are gone
Who the fuck's gonna take their place?

Yeah, will it be the cynic, the critics galore?
The cliché apathetic passed out on the floor.
The trusting complicit who collectively ignore.

Do you still believe in all the things that you stood by before?
(That you stood by before.)
I hope they're on the front lines, or at home keeping score?
Do you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate?
(Bricks that seal your fate.)
Or would you rather be the architect of what we might create?

Don't you remember when you were young, and you wanted to set the world on fire?
Somewhere deep down, I know you do.

(hey!, hey!, hey!, hey!)

And don't you remember when we were young, and we wanted to set the world on fire?
(hey!, hey!, hey!, hey!)
'Cause I still am, and I still do.

Make no mistake, we're not afraid
To bear the burden of repeating
What they're thinking anyway.
Let's raise the stakes
On the bet we made.
Let's decide to be the architects,
The masters of our fate.

Yeah, we still believe in all the things that we stood by before.
(That we stood by before.)
And after everything we've seen here, maybe even more.
I know we're not the only ones and we were not the first.
(We were not the first.)
And unapologetically we'll stand behind each word.

Well seeing as most of the other song comments I have looked at are about what the song means and nobody else has commented on this song (although this is probably because the songs meaning is quite easy to understand)I will put what I think this songs meaning is.

I don't think that the song litteraly has anything to do with architects it is saying that people should follow there dreams to not give up on them "Are you out there on the front line, or at home keeping score" it's almost acusing saying are sticking with what u believe are u still fightig for it or have u given up.
It's saying there mght be people that have been looked up to people that others aspire to be like but eventually they grow old "our heros our icons have mellowed with age" and this means that some people out there have to believe some people out there have to be the new heros "who the fucks going to take there place".
Over all I think this song is aying don't sit at home don't just look at whats going on but be a part of it, somebody has to lead y not u somebody has to be the hero and y not u? are u just going to just let people tell u to make a world to shape your life and fate or are YOU going to shape YOUR own life YOUR own fate.
