Word Alive, The - Smoke Monster Lyrics




The storm is coming, run!
It will swallow you whole
And crush your soul.

Tell me what you feel right now.
You can't escape,
It's the end of this town.
Tell me what you feel right now.
You can't escape,
It's the end of this town.

It will swallow you whole,
Run for your life.
It will swallow you whole.

You could never be replaced!

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

I'm ready to die.
The wave is crashing around me.
Your soul leaves your body.

I know you couldn't make it home tonight,
For fear we come spilling this. [?]
All there is will never be again.

You could never be replaced!

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

I'm not the one
Who will lie in this casket.
This prison was built for you.
This prison was built for you.
You'll be consumed when they crush you.

You could never be replaced!

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

It was hard to see you go away.
(I can't save you, I couldn't save you.)
I couldn't save,
I couldn't save anyone.
Fear for your life, fear for the ending.

You'll be washed away. Away.

Word Alive, The Smoke Monster Comments
  1. Neil Jhurilal

    I think I listen to this song at least once a day still. Such a good album

  2. reflections

    Most underrated Life Cycles song imo.. and yes I'm still listening to it in 2018.

    Aaron S

    back when it came out i always wondered why this song and the conscience were only added as bonus tracks and in the track-list since they could easily replace two songs in the album.
    oh well i think the band even said so themselves that some songs shouldn't have been on the album

    Neil Jhurilal

    Bro I think I jam this song for the least once a month so it doesn’t get boring to me lol probably TWA’s best song imho

  3. ThrashingSalmon

    Definitely alluding to Lost

  4. Kwame Coleman

    The best song they've made everything else was good but this the best song forreal

  5. Nicholas Galyon

    This is my favorite track from Life Cycles.

  6. Chris Jr

    Sickest keys

  7. Ryan A.

    Why this wasn't on the official release is beyond me; definitely in the top 3 off of Life Cycles, which was disappointing overall. And word to those who are making the BoO comparison, I hear it, too.

  8. Be'lakor UK

    Does this song make anyone else imagine what it would be like if Born of Osiris were less heavier and had clean vocals?

    Samantha

    this is the first time I'm hearing this band and the first thing that came to mind was born of osiris

    Be'lakor UK

    @batsandbones x Wow, holy crap! I posted this comment a long time ago :p I appreciate your reply haha.

    Jay The Djentleman

    This is exactly what it would be

  9. Gino Simplicio

    This song is awesome. Definitely the most unique choice of synths i've ever heard in a song.

  10. Connor O'Reilly

    Is this a Lost reference?

  11. Dominic Corbeil

    cuts at 3:25

  12. GreenMonkeyWeed john

    LOL wow..DUDE WTF HOW COULD HE DO THIS TO US

  13. Chris Watts

    Fuck this video for the purpose of having my dick chopped off at the end of the song... BUZZKILLINGTON

  14. steven

    I love Lost, and I love this band.

  15. Surugatari

    Lost reference? Hmmm.

  16. Jacob Miller

    WHAT!? my three favorites of the album lol

  17. Chris Watts

    I HATE HOW BUZZ KILLINGTON SHOWS UP AT 3:28 o_O

  18. David Pollard

    Hai thar Born Of Osiris.

  19. thundercatshoooo

    most definitely. this song sounds really similar to follow the signs i think.

  20. Dingus McBrungus

    I wish I could enjoy the clean vocals.

  21. Jacob Miller

    its funny cuz they do play it live...

  22. Alvin Yang

    no not even the sweeps are hard for zack, the hounds of anubis had CRAZZYY sweeps and they still played it live...and the time signatures are 4/4, its quite normal, its just the rhythm of the break downs

  23. baldymort10

    The two bonus tracks are miles better than anything on Life Cycles.

  24. eyeamAM

    Love this band, the first 45 sec reminds me so much of born of osiris

  25. Alvin Yang

    Lmao the intro makes me laugh cuz it sounds so asian :3

  26. Alvin Yang

    lol dude chill out, ppl sometimes just say stuff

  27. StoIenLogic

    I just hate when people talk like him

  28. David Marsh

    Lol that made my day

  29. David Marsh

    For real, they could have easily taken out Belong, Room 126, and Live a Lie and replaced it with this and The Conscience.

  30. David Marsh

    Agreed word for word, they definitely didn't show us much of their true potential on Life Cycles.

  31. Derek Temple

    i really just dont like the synth effects :(

  32. Dante Kai Ren

    0 dislikes~!! ^^

  33. FearlessX7

    they played this song yesterday xD hahaha

  34. Drewp612

    ya it reminds me of follow the signs

  35. Devin

    They just posted on twitter "Smoke Monster ;)" with a picture of them during band practice, so I can only assume they'll be playing it on their tour with Norma Jean, Crown The Empire, etc.

  36. Gnralex

    Emm maybe coz of that part :0:36

  37. David Stephanoff

    Got this when I pre-ordered on iTunes<3

  38. Nic Dennis

  39. Souless Theory

    Reminds me of Born of Osiris. This is Fucking nuts!

  40. Corey Rich

    HOLY SHIT! I don't really like the album, but I love this!

  41. DammitBobby420

    zack said that this song is so hard on guitar that they will never play it live

  42. joemcbobinite

    LOST BRO.

  43. Alex G

    FUCKING CAME BUCKETS.

  44. joemcbobinite

    Fuckk yeah bro haha. Lost was so damn amazing in my mind, screw the haters.

  45. joemcbobinite

    ~ 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 ~

  46. Broken Lightsaber

    Omfg, why wasn't this on the album!? This is better than most songs on the album, I mean, The album and each song on it are amazing. BUT this... This right here is TWA!

  47. Johnny Bravo

    They climaxed at Empire.. XP

  48. Eric Boss

    It was hard to see you go away! I COULDN'T SAVE YOU! I couldn't save, I couldn't save anyone! FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE, FEAR FOR THE ENDING! I'M READY TO DIE! THE WAVE IS CRASHING AROUND ME! YOUR SOUL LEAVES YOUR BODY! (no idea xD) It was hard to see you go away! I COULDN'T SAVE YOU! I couldn't save, I couldn't save anyone! FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE, FEAR FOR THE ENDING! It was hard to see you go away! I COULDN'T SAVE YOU! I couldn't save, I couldn't save anyone! FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE, FEAR FOR THE ENDING!

  49. LordXennu

    i know what you mean dude... totally this is so fucking epic in so many ways it's awesome as fuck.

  50. aeilis

    I love the diversity they showed with this song!

  51. arthur parker.

    Wow that's my new favorite!

  52. Eric Boss

    I'm not going to lie, this is the epitome of everything great about TWA.
    I don't know, nor do I mind, if you all think differently, but something about this song makes me feel like The Word Alive hasn't even begun to show us what they're really capable of <3

  53. ramond baten
