lyrics

The Architect

I am the architect
I built a city to protect
The things that I placed inside
You'll never have to hide

I populate it with the little things you love
And then I put us in a tower high above

You love it
You need it
You wanted it all
Wake up
And look down
At the city I built for you
I love it
I want it
And I need it too
As long as you still do

I built it for us
You didn't like the cracks and the rust
Help me fix it up
It was built with my hands
It was built to your demands
Help me finish it

She took the only bus
She left the city in a rush
She left everything I made
Everything I gave

I was alone inside
A city that had died
And all the things I made for you
Were thinking of leaving too

You love it
You need it
You wanted it all
Wake up
And look down
At the city I built for you
I love it
I want it
And I need it too
As long as you still do

I built it for us
You didn't like the cracks and the rust
Help me fix it up
It was built with my hands
It was built to your demands
Help me finish it

about

Statue Park Montréal, Québec

Behind soaring, breathy vocals, Statue Park is a blend of intricate guitar interplay, completed by moody, murky samples and bubbly analog synths, driven by a live pulsating, heartbeat of bass and drums. The Montreal quartet manage to carry their complex arrangements to the stage with verve and intensity, delivering a 90s inflected indie rock breathing through epicly layered electronics. ... more
