As Blood Runs Black - An Oath Lyrics




I swear to be alive for the rest of my life

Take it back - from the life that lead me astray
I choose to shed my skin, and free myself from this cage
This cage of memories
They're nothing but pain and illusion
They are not who I am - I am who you see!

Raise your head up and open your eyes
Remember to live before you die

Live before you die!

Take a look - at the thoughts that stand in your way
Simply witness your head lose itself
And break down the walls of your mind
Your mind made reality
It's nothing but pain and illusion
And it's not who you are - you are who I see!

Raise your head up and open your eyes
Remember to live before you die

  1. Rexy Jonathan

    Reminds me to August Burns Red

  2. Bourbon Ernie

    So glad these boys had a crack at metalcore before they broke up. They did it right.

    Ryan Ralston

    Bourbon Ernie I got to talkin Metal with a dude about 20-22 n we were goin back n forth about the more recent Titans (b.o.o. , after the burial , killswitch) and I asked if he had ever heard of allegiance, he said yeah but it's been forever. I told him all the new bands are great n they are BUT. Go back n listen to that. It is to this day (2019) still a masterpiece And still shits on a lot of anything that came before or since.

  3. znemyrkce II

    beautiful song

  4. Mazdé Tone

    so glad I randomly chose this song ! just what I needed !

  5. Kevon Mcguire

    Where the new product from these musicians

  6. thebigcheese3000

    I think ABRB (Or at least post allegiance abrb) stand out in the metal scene due to their positive lyrics and overall groovy and badass riffs that bring a smile to my face. I like a lot of metal bands, but only very few can make me giddy and get me thinking straight like ABRB's Instinct and Ground Zero. Awesome fucking job guys.

  7. Alex Night

    I really like this, I like meaningful shit. It's not just about killing hookers or summoning Satan, they poured their heart into this music and it means something to them.

    thebigcheese3000

    Christian Jesus pal, you must still be some dumb kid in school right?

    Christian

    thebigcheese3000 LMFAO yeah totally u fuckin pegged me lol this is the exact same pseudo-profound, poppy metalcore song that 900+ other bands have produced... They just added literally a handful of new chords. The lyrics are pseudo profound and meaningless, the instrumentals are just a reminder that abrb used to be brutal, it's just an all around disappointment

    Christian

    thebigcheese3000 for the record since, since sarcasm is lost on retards; you didn't fuckin peg me idiot, the only reason you'd think I was a child is if you, yourself, are a child

    thebigcheese3000

    Christian k

    Dank Guy

    allegiance lyrics are incredibly meaningful and shame ground zero, don't know why you are pulling this

    I swear to be alive for the rest of my life

    Take it back - from the life that lead me astray
    I choose to shed my skin, and free myself from this cage
    This cage of memories
    They're nothing but pain and illusion
    They are not who I am - I am who you see!

    Raise your head up and open your eyes
    Remember to live before you die

    Live before you die!

    Take a look - at the thoughts that stand in your way
    Simply witness your head lose itself
    And break down the walls of your mind
    Your mind made reality
    It's nothing but pain and illusion
    And it's not who you are - you are who I see!

    Raise your head up and open your eyes
    Remember to live before you die

  9. Silas The King

    Good song<3333

  10. Austin Ballard

    i think it's good that they broaden their horizons as far as sound and feel.. but I just hope they stay loyal to their origins.. and keep it heavy.

  11. Znatix

    My favorite song of ABRB so far, it molds different genre in a good way. It sad that this isnt popular enough. To those who thinks that this song is bad think again.

    thebigcheese3000

    Znatix It's a great song. It's groovy and its got more emotion than anything from Allegiance. I love Allegiance, but I personally think they've only gotten better and better. Too bad they're finished.

  12. EDDIE ONE

    Voy a quedar sordo xd .ll.

    BackToMetal

    XDDDD latino?

  13. Paul Romero

    What the Fuck is with the clean singing????
    Bring the mother fucking RUCKUS!!!!

    thebigcheese3000

    Paul Romero So you've never liked any clean singing before, ever? You people need to expand your horizons a bit.

    Christian

    thebigcheese3000 LMFAO why does that mean he doesn't like clean singing? If im speaking for myself I think hearing a once filthy death metal band sell out is like nails on a fucking chalkboard w cleans. Not to mention they were trash cleans.

    thebigcheese3000

    Christian "Sell out" lol. This wasnt a death metal band ever, it is and still is deathcore. Bud you dont know what youre talking about. Too bad you dont like it, oh well, but dont act like what you say fuckin goes.

  14. Jordan H

    what would 2007 ABRB think of this..

    Darkstar24

    +jdizzzo7 Great question.. i don't think they'd hate it

    Demian Roses Morello

    they said "this album is more artistic"

    thebigcheese3000

    Who cares?

    Tiago de Alexandria

    @thebigcheese3000 dude, you're on every single MV i got...

  15. azmi azyz

  16. Juan Camilo Trujillo Castro

  17. William Garcia
