After The Burial - To Challenge Existence Lyrics

Bleed for a lifetime, but remain fixed
To challenge existence and
Push through the bleak to find the end
And in my head, the mystery of man
And in my head, we'll see the brighter days

Eyes blaze through lifetimes
A visionary's dream come to being
Chased to the end and held on for dear life
Find me inside the sound
Between the secrets that surround us
We rise above

To follow the same path until we get it right
With you, the good fight
What stories to tell, you and I
Perfect elements balance on what becomes us

And if a light goes out, the mind will show the way
Carry the flame for tomorrow, a sacred blaze
Radiant hands flaring full of gold as we smash into infinity
Challenge existence and stare into everything I've ever known

To follow the same path
Until we get it right
With you, the good fight
What stories to tell you and I
We gave into it all - submerged ourselves
Live by words of the same thought
Blink and it's over
Live by words of the same thought
Breathe when you can
When time keeps its promise
I'll look back and see my mark
I'll see my mark

    This album is going to be on my gym playlist forever.


    @Joseph Bastidas hell ya get it!

    Jason LovesABR

    You guys are making me feel lazy. It rained out here for a little while so I've been quite busy with deliveries finally. Been slow nearly all week. I should be able to go tomorrow. Probably will do a shoulder/arm workout. Yesterday was back. Didn't get to do much chest. I've lost a ton of muscle from having no access to a bench press for quite some time.

    Keir Robertson

    @Jason LovesABR You can do pushups literally anywhere! :D

    Jason LovesABR

    @Keir Robertson lol I just had my best arm/shoulder in a long time. Didn't do too much for shoulders, just shrugs, and press but I did other exercises that still targeted them. Mainly did tricep stuff but 8 exercises all together.

    Mark Franklin

    Yall just want a private room to fuck, or what? Pump this..

  63. Corby Dinsburger

    Not sure what they were trying do do with this song but it doesnt quite mesh as a cohesive unit.

    Jason LovesABR

    Yeah, if anything this is one of the more middle of the road songs, but everything else is golden on this album.

    Dr. Phil

    This is more of a “we’re still super djent” prove it song I feel like. I still think it’s a fantastic song and a fantastic changeup on a fantastic album.


    a "let's have fun and make shit we want" song

    Dan The Man

    @Høler not for elitists, they need things to be more complicated

    Keir Robertson

    It's just ATB doing what they do, fucking shit up with awesome skill

  64. Kam Cambyses

    Djentyyyy AF

  65. tenaciousjoe24

    0:26 ooh that riff tickled my fancy

    Matt Wheeler

    my fancy too has been tickled... dig the riffage.

  66. jOd

    MANNNNNN ATB don't fuck around with the riffs! Sweet jesus, mary and joseph this is nasty!

  67. Roo Castillo

    This is the heaviest song of this album. So djenty!

    Corby Dinsburger

    really? lame

    Sterling Glover

    I wouldn't say heaviest, I'd definitely say djentiest! :)


    Havent heard Quicksand then Im guessing....thats way heavier than this one. This one is just SUUUUPER Djenty

  68. skadi man
