I wanna bother God
I wanna feel the ground beneath my feet
But I’ve got a smile full of broken teeth

All the doves have flown away
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

I know it’s not enough
Why does defeat always taste so bittersweet
I just wanna live and die in peace

The flower that never blossoms is quickly forgotten
It must be gold if it’s glistening
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

All the doves have flown away
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself

Fly high
‘Cause the ravens are here to stay
I must’ve lost myself, lost myself, lost myself in a cloud of
Dead butterflies

  • Man I was so iffy on this song at the first couple of listens. But this has slowly become 1 of my favorite track by these guys they’ve ever made and is honestly 1 of the most beautiful pieces of music i’ve heard in years.

  • Idk why, but this music reminds me Saosin. Great thing) thank you mates for this track... No words to describe the feelings

  • I feel this song i feel the part when he says i lost myself. I lost myself again harder again the start of this year. I lost my uncle 6 days before my 21st bday broke an just now listened to this an felt that hit harder than hell but knowing hes in a better place still makes me feel like i lost myself again an strugglin to pick myself up again from falling down

  • Impractical Jokers Butterfly Crime Scene anyone?

  • Whole drums works on new Architects album were engineered by Adam Nolly Getgood, ex Periphery. Great work.

  • I feel a bit silly leaving a comment but, by the off chance Dan may see this, I just wanted to say thank you. This songs really touched me in a special way. In December 2020 I lost my older sister to a murder suicide and it’s been really hard to cope with it and why it even happened. This song is really beautiful and speaks to me. I’m so sorry for your loss Dan, I know it’s been a few years now but, this song brings me to tears and you’ve moved me, Thank you.

  • Play this at my funeral

  • For those singing for end times... Really dig for Architects. Following from the last 2 albums. Not disappointed.

  • Почему так мало просмотров??? 🙄😳

  • Minute of silence for all those who never heard this masterpiece Y..Y

  • Épico ......

  • its my new favorite song on the album

  • My dad introduced you guys to me about a year ago and I've fallen in love with your music. I have so many favorites already and this new album is just perfect!

  • Generally good album with few small diamonds like this song... Although I miss Sam's "BLUH"

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️ hoping one day I get the opportunity to see these guys

  • This song is perfect. Beautiful.

  • This is powerful, I love it.

  • Tom would be absolutely fucking proud of you, Dan.

  • here to stay

  • Simplesmente um HINO!

  • Getting Manchester orchestra- the silence vibes from this

  • I knew as soon as i heard the intro that the focus would be melodic vocals, which is fine by as those have tended to be my favourite parts of songs on recent albums and continues the trend of the decreasing 'Blegh' count. I'll have to have a listen to the rest of the album.

  • maybe their only good and intresting song of the new album

  • Does anyone know what they’re using to achieve these orchestral/string sounds? Did they record an actual orchestra with session musicians? I don’t see any orchestra info listed in the credits. Either way they sound fucking incredible. If they used plugins to program these sounds, I am buying them asap lol.

  • Best drummer in the word plays for this band such a huge fan in of his

  • Dan Searle murders drums man. Too good and creative. Whole band is nutty

  • This song has an effect on me that nobody can explain but me. It makes me breakdown cause it reminds me of my father who passed. I plan on writing a song about him that's in the style of this song. Maybe it will be the way I cope with his passing. Thank you architect for this master piece I really needed it. ❤️❤️

  • My fav song ever

  • Love this song, and it reminds me a bit of Undertaker's WWE theme music during the chorus. But better.

  • I can’t thank you guys enough. Sincerely. From one human to another. Thank you!

  • Poor Butterflies ❤️

  • Hey the album is out now. And this is still the best song 🦋 The song that definitely touches the soul


  • Someone should take sals "a butterfly crime scene" and edit it in lol

  • I want to make a saxophone version of this

  • New album tomorrow!

  • This song is incredible! I have no other words it's that good!

  • Sexy song

  • Goosebumps! If Architects and Spirtbox could tour together, that would be devine.

  • Wow. This song is amazing. Different than expected, but Architects change things up quit often so... This has epic all over it

  • By far the most impactful song on my life in maybe a decade

  • love the intro

  • Love from Northern Ireland 🇬🇬

  • Such profound and truthfully lyrics packed into symphonies like this are just incredible. Thank you so much for this wonderful support in the own spiritual journey, to recognize who and what we really are. The world needed it so much. Have tears in my eyes during hearing and writing this words. Thank you thank you thank you! Send love and hope to all of you. Big greetings from Austria.

  • Saudações do Brasil!!!


  • omg

  • you guys seriously can't make one bad song.. I bow to you

  • Sal Vulcano must be proud.

  • ☠🦋=🔥🔥🔥

  • I usually don't like when bands change up their music too much because it just doesn't sound as good, but Architects is the exception where it always gets better and better.

    • @Razor Edge and thats kool man

    • @Deric Deandre I don't think they sound like BMTH, I think they now just sound like a more toned down and mellow version of themselves, and I'm personally not a fan of it.

    • @Lyrical Jones give me proof name a bmth song that sounds like animals give me a bmth song that sounds like dead butterflies only then will i agree and apologise for supporting and defending my favourite band

    • @Deric Deandre not wrong at all. You're just in denial. Architects use to have their own unique and technical sound.. Now, unfortunately. They sound like a generic clone of a band who's already done it. So sad.

    • @Lyrical Jones lmao not being specific coz you know you're wrong

  • perdeu a escencia.. nao gostei aquela pegada metal core com melodico era muito boa agr viro simple plan

    • nada haver , eu gostei ficou parecido com BMTH , O album tá bem comteporaneo

  • This is a great song!

  • Got a hint of Demon Hunter to it.

  • awesome

  • OMG, this album is legendary. Every song is a great song. Keep going man. I love your songs.

  • This was fucking beautiful 😍

  • These new songs have helped me through my grieving process since the passing of my son.

  • Это лучшее, чтоя слышал в своей жизни. Спасибо.

  • Ready for the drop in a few days! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • I'm Just here for making the 3340 comments of this video, but howevere this Is gonna be the Reason why people Who Say that Rock/Metal music Is dead are stupid (don't hate me)

  • 最高です。

  • for fuck sake is this St. albert hall in London ???

  • What a fine day to be alive!

  • sounds incredible ... soo looking forward to the new album....if its even half as good as holy hell itll be fantastic.

  • Oufff...omg so Nice... the song of my night shift👌❤

  • OMG.. It's beatiful

  • symphony hardcore !

  • I feel like i'm working for NASA when listen to this song

  • Anyone else getting breaking benjamin vibes? 😍

  • More I hear it, More I need it!

  • Thousand Foot Krutch: Continue our LEGACY!!! ARCHITECTS: We live in a society that, METAL AND NÜMETAL needs to be reborn again. Isn't that right... Batman!?!?

  • This is such a beautiful song. I remember watching the livestream with some friends and just being in awe when they played this song. It's amazing to listen to a song like Gravedigger and then go to something like this. Absolute legends.

  • How have I never heard of them before? I am disappointed in myself

    • Lmfao, check out their last 3 albums before this one. It'll give you a good idea of their sound.

  • Butterfly crime scene

  • These guys have just wanted to be bmth their entire careers. A less successful clone.

  • Loved the track... Good job Architects 🔥

  • Just watched the interview with Josh @loudwire and was drawn here... he speaks of influences and I'm totally feelin old Amorphis and Swallow the Sun here 🤘 Thanks for the new jams... Maybe one day I can see you play this live while we tour together 😉

  • This song legit gets better every time i hear it.

    • Same with Black Lungs, I'm digging this style

    • Yeah it really does, I didn't like it first time I heard it, but hearing it with the album is dope. I want to hear this love so bad. Lighters in the air for this one for sure.

  • This is my favourite architects song ever.

  • Thank you for helping mě push on as in a world that seems so fucking empty

  • Impractical Jokers did it first 🤷🏼‍♀️


  • Putain mais c'est encore plus une dinguerie

  • Veeeery goood

  • 💔🦋 Fly high‼️

  • Início: Karnivool - Set Fire To The Hive Musica: Fraca Expectativa: Bring Me The Horizon 0/5.

  • I love Architects, it is a pity they weren't the greats Architects of our Universe !

  • guys this song is nothing but emotion amazing work

  • I get strong Goku Ultra Instinct vibes from this! Love it! Perfect workout tune.

  • Meh. Is the new album going to be just “power ballads”?
