Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - Modern Ruin Lyrics

All the neighbourhoods you knew and loved
All the streets that you played on
All the streams and the fields and parks
And all the lanes you roamed after dark
All the houses you grew up in
The floorboards you hid money in
The beds where you fucked for love
And all the beds where you fucked for fun

The idea that nobody dies
And when our hearts stop beating, we leave it behind
It's just modern ruin, that's what they'll say
Flesh and blood just rotted away
Steel and concrete titans waiting to be enlightened
All wanna go up in a ball of flame
All wanna burn out, not fade away

The cemeteries and their flesh bouquets
The rivers and the mountain lakes
The copper, the concrete, the iron, and gold
And all the stories that we never told

The idea that nobody dies
And when our hearts stop beating, we leave it behind
It's just modern ruin, that's what they'll say
Flesh and blood just rotted away
Steel and concrete titans waiting to be enlightened
All wanna go up in a ball of flame
All wanna burn out, not fade away

All the nights we stayed up till dawn
All the blankets laid out on the lawn
And all the mornings, and the afternoons
And all the evenings and the night times too
And all the bricks and the mortar you called your home
And all the glass and the metal and the wood and the rope
And all the emptiness you filled with hope
And all the blood and the muscle and the skin and the bone
And all the veins and the cells and the molecules
And all the atoms divided that made up you
And all the vast potential you hold inside
All the infinite darkness and all of the light

  16. Simon Edgbaston

    Brilliant 😃

  17. Alexandre Le bris

    Disapointed. Voice is horrible than the old scream...

    Sam Jardine

    The vocals sounds as good as anything from Blossom

    Alexandre Le bris

    Faulse. Tried to listen an old song, and direct this one. The difference is real, normaly the voice she's not too deep, and normaly i can find melody when it scream. In this song, no. (excuse my inglish i'm french)

    Sam Jardine

    Incorrect. I think it's because the first album the vocals have a slight fuzz/distortion layer added to the vocals. They probably left that out on this track because it wouldn't fit in with the rest of the album. I think the actual vocal performance here is great

    Alexandre Le bris

    We will see, i'm sure after time everyone will be thinling like me.

  18. Faye Wheatley

  38. Nagasaki

    The guitar play is great also this album is definitely not gonna be a Pure Love esque album lol

    Rhys Cargill

    Nagasaki, Frank was saying that's the heaviest track on the new album so it could be but I'm not complaining, it's all top notch.


    @Rhys Cargill yeah honestly Pure Love wasn't bad and Wild Flowers is a fantastic fucking song
