Achilles Come Down Lyrics

Achilles Come Down (阿喀琉斯崩溃) - Gang of Youths

Written by:David Le'aupepe

Achilles

 

Achilles

 

Achilles come down won't you

Get up off

Get up off the roof

 

You're scaring us

And all of us

 

Some of us love you

Achilles it's not much but there's proof

 

You crazy assed cosmonaut

Remember your virtue

Redemption lies plainly in truth

 

Just humour us

Achilles

 

Achilles come down

Won't you get up off

Get up off the roof

 

Achilles

 

Achilles

 

Achilles come down won't you

Get up off

 

Get up off the roof

 

The self is not so weightless

Nor whole and unbroken

 

Remember the pact of our youth

 

Where you go

I'm going

So jump and I'm jumping

Since there is no me without you

 

Soldier on

 

Achilles

 

Achilles come down

Won't you get up off

Get up off the roof

 

Loathe the way they light candles in Rome

 

But love the sweet air of the votives

 

Hurt and grieve but don't suffer alone

 

Engage with the pain as a motive

 

Today of all days

See

 

How the most dangerous thing is to love

 

How you will heal and you'll rise above

 

Achilles

 

Achilles

 

Achilles

Jump now

You are absent of cause

Or excuse

 

So self indulgent

 

And self referential

No audience could ever want you

 

You crave the applause

Yet hate the attention

 

Then miss it your act is a ruse

 

It is empty Achilles

So end it all now

It's a pointless resistance

For you

 

Achilles

 

Achilles

Just put down the bottle

Don't listen to what you've consumed

 

It's chaos confusion

 

And wholly unworthy

Of feeding and it's wholly untrue

 

You may feel no purpose

Nor a point for existing

 

It's all just conjecture and gloom

 

And there may not be meaning

So find one and seize it

Do not waste your self on this roof

 

Hear those bells ring deep in the soul

 

Chiming away for a moment

 

Feel your breath course frankly below

 

See life as a worthy opponent

 

Today of all days

See

 

How the most dangerous thing is to love

 

How you will heal and you'll rise above

 

Crowned by an overture bold and beyond

 

Ah it's more courageous to overcome

 

You want the acclaim

 

The mother of mothers

It's not worth it Achilles

More poignant than fame

 

Or the taste of another

Don't listen Achilles

 

You dense motherf**ker

You're worth more Achilles

 

Than a rat

So much more than a rat

You want my opinion

No one asked your opinion

 

You asked for my counsel

 

Be done with this now

 

And jump off the roof

Can you hear me Achilles

 

I'm talking to you

I'm talking to you

 

I'm talking to you

 

I'm talking to you

 

Achilles come down

 

Achilles come down

 

Throw yourself into the unknown

With pace and a fury defiant

 

Clothe yourself in beauty untold

And see life as a means to a triumph

 

Today of all days

See

 

How the most dangerous thing is to love

 

How you will heal and you'll rise above

 

Crowned by an overture bold and beyond

 

Ah it's more courageous to overcome
