lyrics

Deep in the walls of this room lie people of fame,
Princes and paupers all equals divided by name,
Rulers & writers & renegade fighters of old times,
Lost in the archives.

These haunted old halls diminish the ranks of men,
I can hear their calls stretched between now and then,
Secrets of civilisations, sonnets and songlines,
Lost in the archives.

Relationship statuses, work history, worries and fears,
Filed next to medical records for five hundred years,
It's a needs must so their gathering dust preserves our lives,
Down in the archives.

God or non-God, our ageless pillars of joy,
This afterlife cares not for which you choose to employ,
For although we all die we survive,
Although we all leave we arrive,
To be filed in the archives.
