As Blood Runs Black - Hester Prynne Lyrics




Your vision of a new life was impure
Gave into temptation and threw away what you believed
Your immaculate state of mind was only temporary
Your faults, your flaws, got the best of you
Your commitment, your pledge to another human being
Was destroyed through curiosity
Your goal in life is far out of reach
You'll find yourself out of luck
Branded into your cest-doomestic livestock
Society kept track of your defiance
Branded into your chest-domestic livestock
Terror embedded into your thick mind
Bearing your emblem with pride
Plagues by its purpose in geness
Subsequently flaunting its meaning
Your vision of a new life was impure
Gave into temptation and threw away what you believed
Infestation
Roc-a-way
Your immaculate state of mind was only temporary
Your faults, your flaws, got the best of you
Got the best of you, got the best of you
Your guard was let down
Your past turned against you
Your guard was let down
Your past turned against you

    dandroid argotron

    +XxBBxX dude their album Instinct is pretty legit. Go listen to the song Instinct off of that record.

    Chris Everitt

    +Dandroid CO This album gets you from the prelude, the first song is so amazing that you know the rest is all good.

    I couldn't get into instinct but the latest album from them 'Ground Zero' is incredible.

    Dirty Dan

    XxBBxX ur trippin

  44. Decepticidal

    God this song still gives me fucking goose bumps. sooooo fucking sick. not many can write a perfectly written masterpiece. I wouldn't change a single thing about this. amazing jam.

  47. playboy kxlla

    Awsome song

  48. Benjamin Sagherian

    First deathcore song i ever heard. Thankyou abrb for opening my eyes to an amazing genre. Just wish they didnt loose most of the original lineup. They kinda suck now imo

    Eleanor Ortiz

    Benjamin Sagherian p

  49. Joshua Vincent

    Time 2:12

    Chris Everitt

    +Joshua Vincent 2:08, INFESTATIONNNNNN gotta start it from there man!

  50. Joshua Vincent

    That high guitar part between the breakdowns towards the end... Jesus

    DeltaRim

    +Joshua Vincent It's called a sweep, it's awfully hard to learn that technique, takes forever... But once you learned it they get easier

    Azazul Soulmeister

    +DeltaRim Not to hard to learn. It's actually a pretty simple concept. The time it takes to get down just depends on the level of skill you're currently at.

    DeltaRim

    @Azazul Soulmeister
    I've learned that now :v

  51. Alvaro Andres Mercado Troncoso

    Alta banda man <3

  52. Jim Dingle

    fuck i love this album

  53. The Hottest Wasabi

    26 idiots up there^
    This song is fucking awesome.

  54. GrapeFacedJMike710

    The best of their kind.

  55. How Did you know

    The unfortunate anticipation, which speaks in condemnation to these generations' blindness to mained generation upon maimed generation that awaits us... I suppose there's no getting around that one, eh?  Least of all in a satanic society which, unlike satan, has forgotten the supremacy of God.

    How Did you know

    @Jake Scott lol right on! I take it about a seriously as the music. Great song btw. Keep it up dude, the world needs people like you. I'm just enjoying.

  56. Aaron Czerwinski

    R.I.P. As Blood Runs Black. This was one of their best ones.

    ajkorras

    @Shrek the Ogrelord remember who? ;-)

    UnityDeicide

    +Toxicon Salanavell And the internet.

    UnityDeicide

    +Alex bob Fucking. Everybody. Im not even joking...

    Frogger McSteinergold

    It was their only one. The other ones were horrible, I wouldn't even call them music. You can't just replace everyone in a band and keep the name.

    Brad Penman

    The band was over before the album was even out... first video clip shows only the drummer. The rest shown DID NOT record this album...

  57. Matthew B. Kelley

    still not better than hester prynne the band

    John S

    Hester Prynne is possibly one of the lamest, most generic deathcore bands in existence.  Come on now

  58. Skittles Sick

    Love this song, so rad tho cx

  59. Duskwillcrush

    The sweeps are so amazing

  60. oX★kaninchen2077★Xo

    ayyyy The Scarlet Letter lmaooo. Just kiddin. But if any one is curious about the song title, it's based off the book "The Scarlet Letter". I just read it last semester for ap english. O.o it's trippy.

    Ayy

    No, this is the internet.

    Eben Slasher

    it's wednesday my dudes lmao this is the perfect song

    Euphoric

    Book was dry af in my honest opinion. Should have been a short story lol.

  61. licidity

    21 people are gay

    dandroid argotron

    I'd have to agree with you. You could even say at least 21 people are gay. Maybe even 27 people. hmmmm...

    B3engMarine

    Maybe 48 ... hmmmm

    Craig Menezes

    the gay count has increased to 57

    fiz

    And we all support that, don't we? :)

  62. Kyra Ughulu

    i saw them live last week, and even with the new members they're still amazing.

  63. Desmond holder

    ingested is 10x's better

  64. goclaymatthews54

    agreed. they also got new guitarists just so you know. they may have a different drummer...not sure. I know the bassist is the same tho. but your right

  65. Allen Breaux

    i admit these guys were good but since they got a new vocalist i think it's just not the same :/

  66. Mah Mix

  84. wickeddemonoid69

    uhhhhhh what...... definately not

  85. Casper Rehnström

    I totally agree with you man, this first EP or whatever was great and helped me going heavier. Dope respect for this early shit! D'you know why they kicked him out?

  86. Leito Drums

    you'll better shut up! for what band did you play ?? you did bigger than abrb ??
    if you not then shut up listen to old/new abrb and keep it playing till you can say i did bigger than them

  87. TheYourfaceable

    always a good idea here xD

  88. azzans

    Song is really artistic, the intimacy of style is one of the extremely hard songs to comprehend for musicians, so atleast you know that it isn't some random chug shit band.

    Internet life. I can definitely understand your surprise, ABRB is quite shocking if you're not expecting them. It is a legitimate song about Hester Prynne though...or at least to her. I'm sure you realize that, it's just the style that threw you off.

    I try to avoid leaving comments that can be perceived as negative 'cause I don't want to deal with cyber-morons, they're much worse than normal morons

  91. TestarossaGZ B

    Seems to me like it's about Hester Prynne

    Your vision of a new life was impure
    Gave into temptation and threw away what you believed
    Your immaculate state of mind was only temporary
    Your faults your flaws got the best of you

    Your commitment, your pledge to another human being
    Was destroyed through curiosity
    Your goal in life is far out of reach
    You'll find yourself out of luck

    Branded into your chest - domestic livestock
    Society kept track of your defiance

  92. Brandon Toft

    Read the lyrics, this song is about Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter.

  93. It's Michael

    Man, those bass drops and that breakdown, amazing. Makes your speakers bounce.
