Remember when Hell had frozen over? The cold still burns underneath my skin The water is rising all around me And there is nothing left I can give All these tears Ive shed I saw the wildfire spread You said you cheated death But Heaven was in my head They say the good die young No use in saying what is done is done cause its not enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday What will be will be Every river flows into the sea, but its never enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday No matter what they say Its like a brand new doomsday The embers still glow when Im sober The gold in the flame burns brighter now I have to rebuild, now its over Maybe now Im lost, I can live Souls dont break, they bend But I sometimes forget I have to do this for you And the only way out is through Yeah, death is an open door Words the prophets said Still swimming through my head Now theres no stars left in the sky Cause this well will never run dry What if I completely forget? What if I never accept? Cause when you fade away Its like a brand new doomsday Yeah They say the good die young No use in saying what is done is done cause its not enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday What will be will be Every river flows into the sea, but its never enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday No matter what they say Its like a brand new doomsday
Now the oceans have drained out Can I come up for air? Cause Ive been learning to live without And Im fighting with broken bones I wasnt ready for the rapture, were only passing through But these words, they mean nothing to me I know that time will mend this fracture, Ive been lost in a maze And every route I take, leads right back to you Now the oceans have drained out Can I come up for air? Cause Ive been learning to live without And Im fighting with broken bones Now the skies have been blacked out Ive got to find my way Cause its been raining but theres a drought And Im fighting with broken bones Ive been searching through the wreckage But its like standing in the eye of a storm When will I finally get the message? Some things are broken beyond repair This is my cross to bear My own meaningless catastrophe I never had the time to prepare Because I never knew that all my nightmares could come true Now the oceans have drained out Can I come up for air? Cause Ive been learning to live without And Im fighting with broken bones Now the skies have been blacked out Ive got to find my way Cause its been raining but theres a drought And Im fighting with broken bones Ive spent my fair share In the deepest depths of despair Cause I was too lost down there to care I wasnt braced for the fallout I wasnt braced for the fallout Ive been searching through the wreckage But its like standing in the eye of a storm When will I finally get the message? Some things are broken beyond repair Now the oceans have drained out Can I come up for air? Cause Ive been learning to live without And Im fighting with broken bones Now the skies have been blacked out Ive got to find my way Cause its been raining but theres a drought And Im fighting with broken bones
As above, so below Dismantled piece by piece, whats left will not decease As within, so without The seasons bring relief, let me live and die in peace I will be consumed, returned into the earth Only passing through, nothing left to hold on to Like the thaw against the snow, into the undertow Cut the chord and cast me out, and cast me out Its a promise that you cannot break Was your life worth dying for? The universe survives on give and take Death is an open door Its a promise that you cannot break Was your life worth dying for? The universe survives on give and take Decay is the only law As above, so below Dismantled piece by piece, whats left will not decease As within, so without The seasons bring relief, just let me live and die in peace Change, and everything is change, nothing can be held on to To the degree that you go with a stream You see, you are still You are flowing with it But to the degree you resist the stream, then you notice That the current is rushing past you and fighting you So swim with it, go with it And youre there, youre at rest Itll wear you down through skin and bone, through skin and bone Its as if my mind has a mind of its own, has a mind of its own Itll wear you down through skin and bone, through skin and bone Its as if my mind has a mind of its own, has a mind of its own When my heart skips two beats... I am hidden deep, fast asleep ...The sea will part where oceans meet Finally complete Its a promise that you cannot break Was your life worth dying for? The universe survives on give and take Death is an open door Its a promise that you cannot break Was your life worth dying for? The universe survives on give and take Decay is the only law Swan song, a declaration of endlessness I swear I will not look back as I return into the black When the veil lifts, how will I know, how will I know? Will I see God? As above, so below Dismantled piece by piece, whats left will not decease As within, so without The seasons bring relief, just let me live and die in peace You cant hang on to yourself You dont have to try not to hang on to yourself It cant be done, and that is salvation Memento Mori – be mindful of death
The weight of the world is resting on thin ice When the surface breaks, will I find paradise? As I freeze to death, left to reflect What a waste of time I was in retrospect Id take a leap of faith, but Id lose my nerve In the end, Ill get the hell that I deserve Im always gone with the wind Crawling in and out of my mind God knows I lost all my faith A sickness with no remedy Except the ones inside of me You ever wonder how deep you could sink into nothing at all? Disintegrate, annihilate me Do you remember when you said to me: My friend, hope is a prison? Hope is a prison Of all the patterns that I could create I built a labyrinth with no escape To keep myself under lock and key I am my own worst enemy Id take a leap of faith, but Id lose my nerve In the end, Ill get the hell that I deserve Im always gone with the wind Crawling in and out of my mind God knows I lost all my faith A sickness with no remedy Except the ones inside of me You ever wonder how deep you could sink into nothing at all? Disintegrate, annihilate me A sickness with no remedy Except the ones inside of me You ever wonder how deep you could sink into nothing at all? Disintegrate, annihilate me If I could silence all the doubt in me Accept that what is meant to be You ever wonder how deep you could sink into nothing at all? Disintegrate, annihilate me I remember when you said to me: My friend, hope is a prison

We are beggars, we are so fucking weak And once upon a time, we had the world at our feet Well, were all dying to meet our maker But all our gods have abandoned us All our gods have abandoned us This is the great esoteric depression We sold our souls, but couldnt buy salvation We are all the shades of misery The reigning champions of tragedy They use their faith as a weapon, they count our sins by the seven Blackwater at the gates of heaven All hail the corporatocracy The word of God written in binary All hail our apostasy The dying notes in an unholy symphony All our gods have abandoned us This is the great esoteric depression We sold our souls, but couldnt buy salvation I found God clutching a razor blade He said: Look at the fucking mess theyve made Theyd trade their hearts if they were made of gold We are beggars, we are so fucking weak And once upon a time, we had the world at our feet Well, were all dying to meet our maker But all our gods have abandoned us All our gods have abandoned us All our gods have abandoned us I found God clutching a razor blade He said: Look at the fucking mess theyve made Theyd trade their hearts if they were made of gold But theyre as worthless as the souls they sold
Seven billion hungry ghosts Just a parasite killing its host The emperor wears no clothes, I see those brittle bones But were buried by modern misery Modern misery Theres not enough water in the world To wash the blood from our hands We planted a seed, its roots will suffocate the soul It grows without light and feeds from our bones Hell must be empty, all the devils are here Singing us the Lords Prayer; finally, something that we all share I wont go to the grave with the song still in me What are we hiding in the rain?

From the cradle to the grave Destined to break like the waves Existence is so threatening It takes a fierce grace to crack us open A moment sat with our sentencing And the light comes flooding in, oh, the light comes flooding in When the leaves fall in the spring May all the beggars be blessed Like angels with anhedonia Were all just doing our best Repeating, Theres nothing left Thats why we weed out the wonderers Maybe theres virtue in emptiness But I still drown in distress When the leaves fall in the spring With the ravens here to stay And the doves all flying away Sedation feels so welcoming In the subtle space, theres an endless ocean But the devils sing and its deafening What a world were living in, oh, were never listening When the leaves fall in the spring May all the beggars be blessed Like angels with anhedonia Were all just doing our best Repeating, Theres nothing left Thats why we weed out the wonderers Maybe theres virtue in emptiness But I still drown in distress When the leaves fall in the spring Ive got a lot to lose, but I wont lie to you And make-believe sincerity, Im praying for a remedy Beloved distant blue, one day, Ill die for you And swim in sweet serenity cause death is not my enemy Ive got a lot to lose, but I wont lie to you And make-believe sincerity, Im praying for a remedy Beloved distant blue, one day, Ill die for you And swim in sweet serenity cause death is not my enemy

We suffer to survive Are we desperate creatures crawling in the dirt? Or are we lonely preachers hiding our beating hearts? We sow the wind and reap the storm Dont say you havent been warned No futures written Theres endless possibility We suffer to survive If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free We suffer to survive Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea? We suffer to survive If a kingdom resides behind my own eyes Ive got to catch the stone and cradle the wave Damnation is just a daydream away But still, we carry on If Im God in disguise, praying for the rain And if our demons decide, then is this all in vain? We sow the wind and reap the storm Dont say you havent been warned Its time to confess I haunt this flesh I answer my own prayers I bid my own despair No futures written Theres endless possibility We suffer to survive If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free We suffer to survive Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea? We suffer to survive But still, we carry on Theres a lesson in this, what I resist persists And damnation is just a daydream away If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free We suffer to survive Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea? We suffer to survive
I found my way to the garden, but I couldnt see The cliff edge in front of me, no cloud can catch me now It brings me closer to God But keeps the dirt in the wound, and now the beast has teeth I’ve got my hand on my heart I thought that I knew the way, but Ive been torn apart Now I know theres a holy grail But it’s beyond the pale Why must we always fly so close to the sun? The silhouettes have fallen one by one Cause we forget that the sun sets And were not long for this world No cloud can catch me now The Devils recruits whisper in my ear Go tighten that noose, but its clear Ive gotta follow the thread Instead, Ill dream of the end, and I will raise the dead Were all refusing to feel And yet we’re dying to heal But there is only now And there’s no easy way out I found my way to the garden, but I couldnt see The cliff edge in front of me Now I know there’s a holy grail But its beyond the pale Why must we always fly so close to the sun? The silhouettes have fallen one by one Cause we forget that the sun sets And were not long for this world No cloud can catch me now I see no silver linings When the days are so dark So hold a flame to these words Enough pressure will create a diamond, oh I see no silver linings When the days are so dark So hold a flame to these words Enough pressure will create a diamond Enough pressure will create a diamond
Weve got a choice, but still we’d rather choose to suffer Cause theres no escape once the fuse is lit, locked in this pantheon Swimming with concrete shoes, the reaper comes to take the best of you Can you see the writing on the wall? There is a subtle space that we’ll all discover Cause there is a seat reserved for thе spirit, passing through one by one Riding a torpedo, wе wash away into the overflow Can you see the writing on the wall?

What if I never accept? Cause when you fade away Its like a brand new doomsday They say the good die young No use in saying what is done is done Cause its not enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday What will be will be Every river flows into the sea But its never enough And when the night gives way Its like a brand new doomsday Its like a brand new doomsday

Im looking back on a time when I could say I actually thought I cared about you But after everything Ive been put through I realize Ive been living with false hope Its drowning out my senses I realize Ive been living with false hope Its drowning out my thoughts This has gone oh so confusing And Ive only got myself to blame I cant believe oh what was I thinking Ive only got myself to blame You mean nothing to me - and you never fucking did I cant stand to listen to your excuses anymore I can only pray that you feel so alone And a guilty conscience hangs over your head I cant believe oh what was I thinking And Ive only got myself To blame in all of this Ive got nothing to depend on Oh Ive got nothing to depend on I realize That Ive been living with false hope Its drowning out my senses Its drowning out my thoughts With nothing to depend on anymore You mean nothing to me - and you never fucking did
Resist, rise against Tuning out the message they sent Waking up, things never felt so clear All of it ceased, I want it to pass Armed to the teeth With words that give me some meaning Cover up the mistakes that you made You better believe this feeling wont fade Digging deep, theres a long way to go But theres some things that we want you to know These pills must be bitter to swallow What despair waits for us tomorrow? This is only a matter of time One day youre gonna pay for your crime Armed to the teeth With words that give me some meaning Oh, Im wide awake, but Im still dreaming Im still dreaming Ill clinch my name, Im fading now But were not ready just to lay down and die The clouds are smoke signals, so youll find your way Spread the word of the mess that were in This is a chance to live through my end Im wide awake, but I still hear you Armed to the teeth With words that give me some meaning Oh, Im wide awake, but Im still dreaming Im still dreaming
When in Troy Do as the Greeks do This is treacherous This is cold-hearted betrayal Move in for the kill And youre all traitors Well fight them to the death To the death Burn down the houses Loot all the churches Burn down the houses Burn down the houses And we found the time to pray Pray that our justice be done Pray by the light of the moon That were not here Well fight them to the death Well fight them to the death Fight them to the death To the death When in Troy Do as the Greeks do This is treacherous Move in for the kill
Send my regards To you and yours Im not coming back for you And Ill hold onto the last memory of you Ill hold onto you and bury you at sea How can you watch me split in two? Youve done this before, you know me oh too well Send my regards to you and yours And no hope will come from this So turn around and run How can you smile when you see me crumbling? And we all stood back and watched the waves crash down on you And send my regards to you and yours And theres no hope for someone as cold as you You made me sink into the coldest of waves I watch you sink into lies that you created I watch you sink into lies that you created

Brargh!
It feels like someone is following my every footstep around every corner And there are times when I know Ive felt someone else with me I swear Ive felt your breath down the back of my neck once before I swear Ive felt your breath down the back of my neck once before Im never giving up till I find you Ill never rest until I find you I refuse to rest and I refuse to sleep until I have you in my sights Its gone too far, a few steps behind Where are you now? What is the meaning, why are you doing this to me? What is the meaning, why are you doing this to me? How can you do this? Ill never sleep until I find you Till I find you I swear Ive felt your presence once before Or has my paranoia gone far too far? I cant close my eyes without thinking that Im losing control! I cant close my eyes without thinking that Im losing control! I swear Ive felt your breath down the back of my neck once before I swear Ive felt your breath down the back of my neck once before Im never giving up till I find you Ill never rest until I find you Ill never rest and Ill never sleep till I get my hands around your neck Its gone too far, a few steps behind Im coming for you now All I seem to hear in my head is your voice on repeat I close my eyes and I still fucking see you All I seem to hear in my head is your voice on repeat I close my eyes and I still fucking see you there!
Well, I met you at the blood bank, we were looking at the bags Wondering if any of the colours matched any of the names we knew on the tags You said: See, look, thats yours, stacked on top with your brothers See how they resemble one another even in their plastic little covers And I said I know it well That secret that you knew, but dont know how to tell It fucks with your honour, and it teases your head But you know that its good, girl cause its running you with red Then the snow started falling, we were stuck out in your car You were rubbing both of my hands, chewing on a candy bar You said: Aint this just like the present to be showing up like this? As a moon waned to crescent, we started to kiss And I said I know it well That secret that we know, that we dont know how to tell Im in love with your honour, Im in love with your cheeks Whats that noise up the stairs, babe? Is that Christmas morning creaks? And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I know it well And I, I know it well And I, I know it well And I, I know it well And I, I know it well, I know it well And I, I know it well
I watched you change Into a fly I looked away You were on fire And I watched a change in you Its like you never had wings Now you feel so alive Ive watched you change I took you home Set you on the glass I pulled off your wings Then I laughed And I watched a change in you Its like you never had wings Now you feel so alive Ive watched you change Its like you never had wings I look at the cross Then I look away Give you the gun Blow me away And I watched a change in you Its like you never had wings Now you feel so alive Ive watched you change Now you feel alive You feel alive You feel alive Ive watched you change Its like you never had wings Youve changed Youve changed Youve changed Youve changed
I dont feel homesick, Im just so sick of home Its here that reminds me of everything weve been through And it tears me down It makes me sick of being who I am, of who I cannot be A constant reminder I dont feel homesick, Im just so sick of home Its here that reminds me of everything weve been through Cold nights, again left alone Wandering streets all on my own And all of this for you Its time that I went back for just even an hour To talk to you to make things fine again Again and again I will run from you
If only you were here To hold my head above bloody waters We could make it through You turned your back on me And now I do the same to you You made me feel so hollow How can the man that you looked up to Turn around and say three words That hurt more than youll ever know You dont know what it feels like to be in my shoes You turned your back on me as I stood there and fell to the floor You turned your back on me as I stood there and fell to the floor This time theres no reason for me To turn around and scream for help But if only you were here To hold my head above all those things you said to tie me down Im looking for forgiveness for something that I didnt even do How can you call yourself an idol A person to trust? How can I look so high up to you when youre always holding me down? How can I look up so high when youre holding me down?
All is not lost, all is not lost, all is not lost, all is not lost Waiting for a sign washed up on the shoreline Ill always carry the cross, but all is not lost I just cant relate a crack in the floodgate Life comes at a cost, but all is not lost Is this penance for my sins? I gave everything for this phantom limb Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever Now its time to sink or swim Ive got nothing except this wasted hymn Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever Taking back whats mine, but its lost to the skyline A bridge I cannot cross, but all is not lost Now theres no escape; God, what a sorry state Love comes at a cost, but all is not lost Is this penance for my sins? I gave everything for this phantom limb Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever Now its time to sink or swim Ive got nothing except this wasted hymn Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever Can you fill the empty space? Can you feel the fire at the gates? Can you live a life worth dying for? Can you fill the empty space? Can you feel the fire at the gates? Can you live a life worth dying for? Is this penance for my sins? I gave everything for this phantom limb Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever Now its time to sink or swim Ive got nothing except this wasted hymn Holy Ghost, nothing lasts forever
For weeks Ive felt lost and I cant see the light Shining through the darkest of days What can I do to stop myself from hiding my thoughts From this world of lies? Ive felt so lost for far too long Trying to leave it all behind I find I cannot forgive myself for feeling like this How can I even begin to forgive myself for all the things Im thinking of doing to you? How can I forgive myself for this? But its all in your head You just walk out of my life and you expect me to let you back in With open arms Ill turn to you For weeks Ive felt lost and I cant see the light So Ill do this one alone Ill hide my thoughts from you Is it beyond impossible for me to hold on for you? Is it beyond you to forgive me? If not Ill do it on my own time How can I forgive myself? For my world is slowly falling down And you just stand there and watch me fall
The towers that shoulder your pride The words youve written in stone Sand will cover them, sand will cover you The streets that suffer your name Your very flesh and your bones Sand will cover them, sand will cover you So put your faith in more than steel Dont store your treasures up with moth and rust where thieves break in and steal Pull the fangs from out your heel Oh, we live in but a shadow of the real Step out from time and see the dust of nations Step out from time and hear the stars ovation Saturn will not sleep until the sand has made us clean Still, we stack our stones and bury what we can But it all will be undone, and nothing built under the sun Will ever stand before the endless march of sand So put your faith in more than steel Dont store your treasures up with moth and rust where thieves break in and steal Pull the fangs from out your heel Oh, we live in but a shadow of the real So put your faith in more than steel Dont store your treasures up with moth and rust where thieves break in and steal Pull the fangs from out your heel Oh we live in but a shadow of the real
I will spill blood On your filthy princess whites Come home tonight So I can slit your throat Every time you discard my heart Your ships sinking fast The colours are fading Save me again tonight, you know Ill make it count Princess, theres more to life than robbing banks You wont walk away from this broken heart Slash my arms Tear off my limbs I will never back down to your sin

from datasets import load_dataset, Dataset, DatasetDict
import numpy as np

datasets = load_dataset("huggingartists/architects")

train_percentage = 0.9
validation_percentage = 0.07
test_percentage = 0.03

train, validation, test = np.split(datasets['train']['text'], [int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*train_percentage), int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*(train_percentage + validation_percentage))])

datasets = DatasetDict(
    {
        'train': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(train)}),
