What is the architect doing?
He is by the riverside
What is he thinking out there?
He is committing egocide

Now isn't that a strange thing?
Well to him it feels just
Well we guess a person's gotta do
What a person feels he must

He said, "I won't throw myself from the pier
I'm gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when the year is over I'll reappear
And have a solution"

"I've reason to believe that what I find
Is gonna change the face of human kind
And all these years before well I was blind
That's my conclusion"

"'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect"

Now the man has understood
That outer space is overrated and too
About all the problems on this earth we should
Worry now to solve them later

And so he's brooding and alluding on a perfect design
He thinks that working on behalf of himself is a crime
He flushes out by the water, a view so divine
He's the architect of his own fate, a man in his prime

He said, "I won't throw myself from the pier
I'm gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when that year is over I'll reappear
And have a solution"

"I've reason to believe that what I find
Is gonna change the face of human kind
And all these years before well I was blind
That's my conclusion"

"'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect"

And so he drew himself a pentagon
Thinking it through a geodesic dome
From the coast of Tahiti, to the hills of Rome
Step aside cause the man will take the Nobel prize home

He said, "I won't throw myself from the pier
I'm gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when that year is over I'll reappear
And have a solution"

"Now if these aspirations bother you
Well you are just you, you don't have a clue
I'm sticking to the plan I will see it through
Let there be no confusion"

"'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect
'Cause I'm the architect"
