01. Separation

Music by As I Lay Dying

02. Nothing Left

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
This world was never worthy
But how can I call it unfaithful
Every promise was fulfilled
As decay crawled from it's throat
Like the dead rising from an open grave
Like the dead rising from an open grave

Lips of splendor and tongue of deceit
All dying now as our fragile wrists hold only waste

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left
Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

If all my sorrow has led me here
Then I would cry all of my tears
To have this chance again
To have this chance
And know there's more than this
And know there's more than you

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left
Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left


03. An Ocean Between Us

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
How many years have we waited
For a ship that never set sail?
And how many days have we wasted
Chasing a love that was not our own?

I sat ashore and watched
As one hopeless wave crashed upon another
While my thoughts ran to the hills
My heart never, never reached the sea

With only delusions of an endless journey
I am left with an ocean between you and me
An ocean between

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

The gate to my heart has been weld shut
With the splendor of my aspirations closed in

How many years have we waited
For a ship that never set sail?
And how many days have we wasted
Chasing a love that was not our own?

Is this your salvation?

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

How many days have we waited
For a ship that never
Never set sail

How many days have we wasted
For a ship that never
Never set sail, set sail!

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream


04. Within Destruction

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
If music is
A mirror revealing
The depths of my heart
Then I will write
The darkest song
For without
Forgiveness
My soul is lost

All that is hope
Within destruction
Comes from you
For I have fallen

All that is hope
Within destruction
Comes from you
For I have fallen
Fallen

If music is
A mirror revealing
The depths of my heart
Then I will write
The darkest song
For without
Forgiveness
My soul is lost

All that is hope
Within destruction
Comes from you

For I have fallen
And there is nothing good
Within me yet I've
Been given life
I will
I will never
Deserve
For without
Forgiveness
Without forgiveness my soul is lost

All that is hope
Within destruction
All that is hope
Within destruction

All that is hope
Within destruction
All that is hope
Within destruction

All that is hope
All that is hope
All that is hope
All that is hope


05. Forsaken

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
I've looked straight into your eyes
And turned my head for the last time
Because I was scared to leave these walls in ruin
Like the fate of those who trust in themselves
We are alone and afraid

I know you are the one we left behind
Yet somehow we are the ones who are alone
You are the one we left behind
You are the one we left be...

I will no longer turn my head
I will never forget you
You are the one we left behind
You are the forsaken

We've built our confidence
On broken dreams now left for dead
Yet we've been condemned
To chase these dreams that never end

I know you are the one we left behind
Yet somehow we are the ones who are alone
You are the one we left behind
You are the one we left be...

I will no longer turn my head
I will never forget you
You are the one we left behind
You are the forsaken

I will no longer turn my head
I will never forget you
You are the one we left behind
You are the forsaken

Our selfishness consumes us
Until the whole world is not enough
Forgive the day that I erased your name
That I erased your name
For it's the memory of me that will decay

I know you are the forsaken
Yet somehow we are the ones who feel alone
I know you are the forsaken
Yet somehow we are the ones who feel alone


06. Comfort Betrays

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
You sat and watched
As I nearly destroyed myself
Never had I felt so betrayed

That you would sacrifice my life
For no more than comfort

And now your love means nothing to me
Your love means nothing to me
Nothing to me

You are a coward, the antithesis of a friend
Take action before there is
No one left to defend

For I would have stood by you
For I would have stood by you
For I would have stood by you

For I would have stood by you
Right to the gates of hell
Right to the gates of hell


07. I Never Wanted

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
I never wanted
And I never cared before

I never wanted
And I never cared before
Now take it back
This is a new day

I never wanted
And I never cared before
Now take it back
This is

How I long to regress
To the days before I took upon myself
The obsessions of this world
(For tomorrow)
To the day of innocence equating beauty
(May fall)
For tomorrow may fall
(And today)
And today is already gone
(Is already gone)

For tomorrow may fall
Today is already gone

Now take it back
This is a new day

I never wanted
This is a new day
And I never cared before
I never wanted
And I never cared before

I've grown tired of chasing
Convinced I was in need
And now the years I've spent
Only a slave to this

Tomorrow will fall
And today is already gone
I will no longer adore these things
That will never satisfy me

I have seen my world change
And then go back to where it came

In this vicious cycle
We are all
Brought back to life
Only to die

In this vicious circle
We are all
Brought back to life
Only to die
(And I)

In this vicious circle
(I have seen my)
We are all
(My world change)
Brought back to life
(And then go back)
Only to die
(Back to where it came)

In this vicious circle
(But without these)
We are all
(Barren obsessions)
Brought back to life
(I am simply)
Only to die
(I am simply free)

I have seen my world change
And then go back to where it came


08. Bury Us All

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
I see them coming
With shrouds to bury us all
Before we were born they shaped our lives
Leading us into an unmarked grave
In moments life could end
So I will speak while I can

This is my chance
My time to stand

This is my chance
My time to stand

This is my chance
My time to stand

We may fail alone but that is better
Than dying with them only to be forgotten
I for one would rather suffer now
Than leave this life without passion

This is our chance
Our time to stand

This is our chance
Our time to stand

This is our chance
Our time to stand


09. The Sound Of Truth

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears
We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears

But what wisdom, is there within us
To live based on, the feeling of our hearts
How many times, has instinct let us down
Never to be, thought through
Never to be, questioned

Say what you really mean
When your ambition, calls you, calls you
For what, use is there, is there in praying?
If you will only, hear what you want, to hear

We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears

We speak of fighting, to resist this world
But what about the battle, the battle, within us?
If we have chosen, to live against the grain
Then why are we, all facing, the same way?

There is no difference, between us and them
If we all blindly, seek truth, from sentiments

We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears
We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears
We have all heard, what we wanted to hear
Truth that sounds right to our ears

11. Wrath Upon Ourselves

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
I can only, I can only
Imagine that, imagine that wrath is being held out
So that there, so that there
Will be time out for us to be redeemed

But surely wrath is not being held out
So that we may redeem ourselves
For I have seen the madness
Of those who died trying

But is regret only a word
That the living possess?
But is regret only a word
Only a word that the living possess?

I long to see their faces
Regardless of the decay
For in the eyes of the deceased...

We would see hope in our last day
Inside this dying world
For there is still, for there is still beauty
Inside this dying world

For what good is there holding off wrath
If we are determined
To bring wrath upon ourselves
Wrath upon ourselves
To bring wrath upon ourselves

We would see hope in our last day
Inside this dying world
For there is still, for there is still beauty
Inside this dying world

We would see hope in our last day
Inside this dying world
For there is still, for there is still beauty
Inside this dying world


12. This Is Who We Are

Music by As I Lay Dying
Lyrics by Tim Lambesis
Now this is who we are
I am no one's hero
For we are not the giant men
That some may think
You are faithful when we are not
So I'd like to tell this story
The way it is meant to be

Without the burden that's in our hearts
None of us would have ever found you
For you are faithful when we are not
You began a work
That only you can complete

Now this is who we are
I'll never know the answers
And I'll always wonder why

Now this is who we are
I'll never know the answers
And I'll always wonder why

Why we're given grace we'll never deserve
And a second chance that we will never earn
For there is nothing I can do to save myself

Now this is who we are
I'll never know the answers
And I'll always wonder why

Now this is who we are
I'll never know the answers
And I'll always wonder why

Now this is who we are
I'll never know the answers
And I'll always wonder why

But you have let me start again
I'd rather be called weak
Than die thinking I was strong
