The Reckoning (single)

by Devil Sold His Soul

1.
THE RECKONING Broken is this the end of it all? was that the rise & the fall? is this the last Fallen Down from the grace that we knew Back to the floor where we grew is this the last My eyes are open this is not defeat If you take this from us then just bury me Because its my everything With this poison biting Brings me to my knees My hand outstretched crying for relief But no ones hearing me Another chance has gone by begging Another useless remedy For this collapsing synergy The throat was slit But it only drizzled It was the slowest emptying To prolong the reckoning Are we still alive The light is fading, soon we'll disappear They only give a f@ck When you're not there My eyes are open this is not defeat If you take this from us then just bury me Because its my everything With this poison biting Brings me to my knees My hand outstretched crying for relief But no ones hearing me I feel myself fading into the dark And no ones there To pull me back in I found out the hard way What it is to exist And no ones there We're on our own No one is there To stop this fall Is this the end of it all

A message from the band:
"We have been a band for over 12 years. Along the way we have met some of the best people and shared some of our most treasured memories. But, as in life, those good times are inevitably interrupted by more testing ones. This song represents our struggle as a band and as individuals during those most difficult moments and reflects on how we got through them and moved forward.

"It's been 2 years since we last released new material and they've been pretty tough years for us. I began to question the existence of the band, I think we all did at times.
This song is about dark days, it's right from the heart, it's as honest as I could be about recent times and it tells of our struggle and a hope that we're beyond it." - Paul Green

Not long after we had written this song we found out the tragic news of our friend Tom Searle's passing. This really came as a huge shock to us all, as it did to countless other people around the globe. We have felt a special affinity with Architects having been part of the same scene since we formed back in 2004, following similar paths in the early days and touring together over the years. We have always had the utmost respect for them as musicians and as people. We wanted to be able to show our support for those closest to Tom and for those who cared for him. Therefore we would like to donate all proceeds from this track to The Martlets Hospice as a tribute to the life and work of Tom and the legacy he leaves behind. We hope the money raised can be used to help those with terminal illnesses and support those close to them in their time of need. Please donate for this great cause. Thank you."
