As Blood Runs Black - Vision Lyrics




I shut my eyes in order to see through all the lies that seem to surround me

So here I am at the precipice again
Am I alive and breathing, or just dreaming in my head?
I lie awake, questioning what I know
To persuade myself, I know exactly what to do!

I shut my eyes in order to see through all the lies that seem to surround me

SHUT YOUR EYES, FUCK YOUR LIES!

It never ends, when my decision is made
I can't control my thoughts, I'm a fucking moth to the flame
It never ends, deep down inside of me, but this is something I know will stay with me

And I just know that this is time to let go now that I can see
That the past is gone and all that's left is dead memories

Someone please get me out of this place
Blinded by the lies that keep my mind enslaved
OR I WILL SHAKE THE EARTH

I will shake the earth
[chant:] SHAKE THE EARTH!
And I will change this world
[chant:] CHANGE THIS WORLD!

And I just know that this is time to let go now that I can see
That the past is gone and all that's left is dead memories

I shut my eyes in order to see through all the lies that seem to surround me

I will shake the earth
[chant:] SHAKE THE EARTH!
And I will change this world
[chant:] CHANGE THIS WORLD!

  1. Jusmor

    Can someone PLEASE make a tab of this

  2. morwen angelus

    sooo in love with those cleans man.... super extra shit!!! sounds like Jesse Leach at moments, impressive! shout out to ABRB for doing this. GZ is an amazing album, a very mature form, they took their allegiance style to a whole new level. not many bands can do that.

  3. Travis Gilley

    I haven’t listened to these guys in like 6 years. What happened to Ernie? And sal? That doesn’t look like them playing guitar...bummer

  4. senyoret Core

    Underrated

  5. W D

    ..their sound changed alot since Allegiance. But again Nick and Lech were the only ones keeping the band together. I wish these guys were still around.

  6. Derek Frankovich

    I like this. Different, but good. Keep the direction guys! One thing people forget is that it's not 2004 anymore, as much as I'd like it to be. Still love The Lech's drumming, and I see he is still rocking that zilbell!

  7. Ty Van Wie

    I shut my eyes in order to see through all the lies that seem to surround me

    SHUT YOUR EYES, FUCK YOUR LIES!

    It never ends, when my decision is made
    I can't control my thoughts, I'm a fucking moth to the flame
    It never ends, deep down inside of me, but this is something I know will stay with me

    And I just know that this is time to let go now that I can see
    That the past is gone and all that's left is dead memories 

    Someone please get me out of this place
    Blinded by the lies that keep my mind enslaved

  8. CrazyGuyOnDrums

    Just come back to listen again. Still hardcore as fuck

  9. SoulFlayer

    Don't compare albums, each one is a different style masterpiece with the abrb essence

  10. Xilas Jenkins

    All this talk about evolving, and all I keep thinking is isn't there not a single original member in this band at this time? I think maybe the bassist, but all the originals(using word lightly) have been gone from the band.

    Albert Suchan

    Bassist and drummer played on all of their releases. When you actually think about it, there is a plethora of praised bands that have one or not a single original member left (Sepultura, Norma jean, Napalm Death...). The issue with abrb isn't necessarily the number of original members but the fact that they can't keep a frontman for longer then few years so he can't really connect with the people, the insanely long gaps between albums that allow for the hype to kinda die out as well as the fact that aside from few exceptions (for example Vision, where even the clean vocals work really well) Ground zero felt half assed, rushed and not heavy at all.

  11. Bourbon Ernie

    The message? Don't get with girls who paint their eyebrows.

  12. GouVahsi

    Metalcore as Fuck!!! LoL I thought ABRB Is Death metal band

  13. Max Kliegl

    Is this As Blood Runs Black or Bury Tomorrow mixed with Within The Ruins? Great song but just sounds like Bury Tomorrow mixed with Within The Ruins.

  14. brendan curtin

    If it wasn't for Dan sugarman check him out I wouldn't never heard this awesome band

  15. Mitchell Colurciello

    Did they even practice this song? Or did they just get drunk and write random jazz?

  16. Rodrigo core

    fodaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  17. Armymike248

    This song just makes me realize how much I hate the army

  18. Deth Kok

    What happens to jack black?

  19. Michael

    I don’t like cleans in metal, but his are alright

  20. Sky Walker

    😂😂😂🤫🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  21. Sky Walker

    Wtf I did I just watch I was trying look up rip vocals

  22. Jeremy Sullivan

    Wish there was a tab for this out

  23. Herwan Dinata

    As Bieber Runs Black

  24. Hendrika Kwan

    love how sharp and smart looking folks churn out metalcore...screw stereotypes

  25. jbarnesiii88

    I like how they are headed more towards a metalcore sound now from their (fucking awesome) deathcore sound. Metalcore is almost dead thanks to bands like SWS, BVB, etc., and the post hardcore genre. And a lot of deathcore is starting to move towards lower dropped tunes, which these guys are not. I think bands like these guys and Killswitch Engage are starting to bring Metalcore back from its roots. The Devil Wears Prada is worn out, they need a break too haha

    thebigcheese3000

    jbarnesiii88 I dont think this sounds like metalcore at all. It sounds like deathcore with a more positive sound.

    German Salazar

    what does "a more positive sound" even mean? was ABRB the ONLY death core band?

  26. Darren Kristianson

    ABRB is one of my favorite bands ever and I'm about as deathcore purist as they come but I can say these guys are pretty damn consistent in the records they put out and they all have that ABRB feel to them no matter how many members come and go!

  27. mvc2juggernaut

    Clookc18

    InTheHallsOfAwaiting seppuku*

  29. Puppy Monkey Baby

    Clean vocals sound almost exactly like Jesse Leach

    Albert Suchan

    Which is definitely a good thing.

    Toby Houde

    Most intelligent comment. I don't need to read any more.

    Some Kind of Master

    That's why As Blood Runs Black and All Shall Perish are true metal

  30. Azmi Fadhil

    Sick! Badass song

  31. Azmi Fadhil

    Sick! Badass song

  32. Dusty Partition

    I still haven't received my perks.

  33. Ariey O' Hara Blade

    the drumming now are so different compared to last time. I miss hearing those snares tho.

    Ramon Herrera

    so heavy on the snares! it was awesome.

  34. Crystal Berry

    shit as blood runs black do what u do and. keep making great music there sound is awsome

    Standby Records

    Crystal Berry thanks Crystal

  35. MILE SMILE

    this voc not deathcore typical.. i preffer to sonik garcia...

  36. Kevin Krispin

    Im glad leach isnt a lil bitch anymore

  37. Znatix

    One of my favorite bands of all time too bad they arent getting much attention that they deserved to be

  38. Manuel Barco

    smdh what the fuck happened to them . came back years later and found this shit ...

  39. CrazyGuyOnDrums

    many guys complain about changing of their sound but I think this song is good. Well writen both music and lyrics. Powerful music doesn't need to be brutal

  40. Hananto Dhewangkoro

    bieber core

  41. Azazul Soulmeister

    This band needs to fire their vocalist and get another person who does only brutal shit.

  42. Matej Martin

    Used to listen abrb back in the day, this new stuff sounds good to me, they cant keep on producing the same stuff

  43. mark olivares

    not one diminished chord

  44. Thomas Parsons

    I miss the old shit. But this shit is still good. That snare still has that badass allegiance sound I always loved in the album

  45. kollimenakal

    we had ONE deathcore band.so they decided to go metalcore :-|

  46. Hans León

    Metalcore???

  47. Disney Jazzcore

    This is probably my second time comment but its hard not to notice that the drummer looks a bit like Will Poulter.

  48. Katy O'Malley

    WHAT THE FUCK EVER HAPPEND TO DEATH METAL BANDS THAT HAD LONG HAIR INSTEAD OF THIS SHORT PUSSY HIPSTER STUFF. PISSES ME OFF

    Katy O'Malley

    @Piotr Nienie I AGREE

    I'm Recca

    +Katy O'Malley LOL you accept your comment dumb? LOL

    Anthony Armstrong

    +Katy O'Malley thats what you care about? It's fashion, it changes with the times.

    Znatix

    Who the fuck cares! They are awesome so what if they trim their hair, doesnt make the band sucks right. smh

    JLOVE Catastrophe!!

    So just because he has short hair means he's garbage???? Your fucking retarded....

  49. Molotov

    Just weak. Disappointed. Not heavy or melodic I don't know what direction there going. Singing is ok.! Drumming is still the best thing from this band. SHM

    mikey0188

    This song is all melodic dip shit

    Molotov

    +mikey0188 yea.!! And it's not every good.. I know lech. His older brother Edwin was our drummer. FYI is better than Lech. Anyways..!! It didn't do it for me.. Guitars are shit and screams not very good to soft especially when u combined them with clean vocals. Like I said Chris's singing is cool and the drumming is still the best thing out of this band.! But let's be real ten years ago this would been a great song. But now with almost every musician being properly trained. Bands like Erra, Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, the faceless. It kind leaves ABRB in the dust. Shit even Suicide Silence after Mitch died that band took a shit. No disrespect to Eddie but he's not Mitch.!! Those are some big ass shoes to fill same thing with winds of plague and despised icon they all couldn't keep up. Sorry bro.! Just calling it like I see it.

    Oscar Ortiz

    +fh Molotov that's funny cuz all shall perish is way better than SS lol

    thebigcheese3000

    Molotov The Faceless isnt deathcore, VOM and BOO are lame as fuck (imo), and those other bands dont sound as good as this in the least.

  50. Plüka man

    they sound ok. they should totally change the name seeing how its not really as blood runs black anymore. once everyone from the original band leaves they name should change. they should stop trying to ride the coat tale of a band what once kicked ass and do it on they own with a new name and see how far it gets them then. just saying

    thebigcheese3000

    plukaman1020 This is better than Allegiance.

  51. hUan sUn

    Please don't be Metalcore your Deathcore was so good

    Benz Pantera P.Drive

    they are good too in metalcore.

    thebigcheese3000

    Its not metalcore you simpleton.

  52. Judd Hough

    Oh, and this shit is still heavy as fuck!

  53. Judd Hough

    Sounds good. I like it. This entire album is pretty legit and they are clearly still ABRB it's so evident in their current music. The drums and guitar sound just as they did on their old stuff but they've just matured as musicians. They are still a great band. I saw them like 6 months ago for my birthday at Jerry's pizza in Bakersfield CA

    slleepytea

    The new band definitely picked up the old ABRB style, too ill. some small changes but still a great band

  54. The Blacklights

    The singing is actually cool. Other than that, it still sounds deathcore to me

  55. Sebastian Toh

    didnt know JB was into deathcore/metalcore as well.

  56. Joe

    I liked the original singer better.....but I guess it's alright.

  57. FaZe_X-Pulse

    This is good compared to the music nowadays. Where They sound like girls screaming.

  58. Darkleo_96

    Lyrics?

  59. trumpmakemehappy

    sounds heavy as fuck to me

  60. Mark Holmes

    All the hate. God forbid a band matures musically.

  61. Adam M.

    Not bad but now they more care about.."how they look" than music. Sad

  62. First Last

    is it metalcore or melodic deathcore . . . .or ?

    David Valles

    Maybe it's "who gives a fuck?"

  63. Rizky Ramandhika

    is that Kenny from We Are The Millers on the drum?

  64. nights slash 666

    Why they incite to suicide? It's not funny and not to play with that. My girlfriend almost commits suicide once. You think it's funny to lose what gives you happiness by suicide? It is not for anything funny. Please spread this message. I am not asking them to change their music or something. I just want to avoid passing to others what I went through.

    David Valles

    But she didn't. your right though. Let's ignore it. That's way better.

    Jordan Sartor

    they're trying to create a story in the music video. that's all

  65. ThatDumbGaming Tj Skluzak

    not bad i was starting to look more into deathcore

    Benz Skyes

    +TJ Skluzak lol its okay my brother xD

    Offensivename

    abrb is deathcore

    Offensivename

    although this sounds like metalcore

    jedi jerry

    +Offensivename melodic deathcore

    Offensivename

    @jedi jerry basically the same thing lol

  66. Zachary Koedyker

    I hate commenting on Youtubr because everyone is a critic, but seriously, maybe its my opinion only, but this is the perfect example of an old sound(Old ABRB) mixed with a new(New ABRB W\ a new vocs). Its amazing that in 9+ years and only 2 albums theve formed this sound and still have so many fans. Kinda like an UABB meets old ABRB. Keep it up dudes. Im loving it

    Zachary Koedyker

    plus with Lech comming back, and there "lead" guitarist and "Orignal bass" player still playing, are they really so different?

  67. Albert Suchan

    So... Allegiance - Jack Black, Instinct - Barrack Obama, and Ground Zero - Justin Bieber? :D

    Kevin Gardo

    +Albert Suchan why aren't you on top? here you go mate!

    intactGB

    +Albert Suchan what?

    Metal Monkey failed English

    who is ground zero?

    Samuel Laguna

    HERE'S UR THUMB UP GOOD FELLA :')

    ANSUZ G.C

    Albert Suchan Nailed it dude😄😄😄

  68. Luc Zo

    they make some of the realest music i've heard.

  69. OliviA Miller

    this is no longer deathcore or abrb. what a disgrace to the true fans.

    Carlos Rivera

    disgrace?!?!? do u wear the same clothes for 13 years? shit changes. they are still talented . get over it.

    thebigcheese3000

    "The true fans" Dear god, lmao.

  70. Santiago Oliveros

    This sound is not ABRB this is other band :(

    Albert Suchan

    @Santiago Oliveros Not really, you have many significant particles usual for their earlier works, such as very melodeath influenced riffing, hardcore influenced vocals and pretty technical breakdowns. The only thing that actually changed is the fact they used some kind of metalcorish chorus and that the vocalist is too pretty for metal but anything what would stop me from listening to them or considering them sellouts or some other band. Pretty much still As blood runs black with some inovations.

  71. Perry Kettler

    Where's Obama?

    D'Ander McSullivan

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. This dude right here.

  72. a936Massacre

    I dig the new ABRB but do miss the old. Back in the good ole days.

  73. choprox01

    great video...

    It really comes down to just that...the choice you make will define your future...

    ABRB still rocks

  74. cris cris OUGABOUGA

    frontman looks like justin bieber of deathcore!!!

  75. Disney Jazzcore

    Deathcore Slapping ? MAN ! The Bass is more techniqual than the guitar!

    Bad Ass

    im so jealous

    Carlos Rivera

    you should listen to Beyond Creation . great bass. great band

    D'Ander McSullivan

    +Carlos Rivera Forest left tho, did he not?

    Carlos Rivera

    +D'Ander McSullivan their current bassist is equally as badass. just saw them play 3-4 weeks ago.

    D'Ander McSullivan

    +Carlos Rivera will have to check him out. I have been kind of outdated lately.

  76. Cody Perkins

    To all of you bitching and moaning: at least it's not Instinct. I agree it's not as good as Allegiance but it's still fucking amazing.

    thebigcheese3000

    Cody Perkins Instinct and Ground Zero are better than Allegiance. Better musicianship, more heart, and waaay more mature. To each their own, though.

  77. Gothic Whoovian

    I enjoy old and new, older more, but I like how bands evolve, ad this music video is a 10/10

  78. Yauhen S

    Класс!!! Вельмi добра!

  79. Rockswell Dj-G

    This is great stuff

  80. Callum CountSlayer

    This is not As Blood Runs Black... slightly dissapointed...

  81. Gerardo Ortega

    This is straight! They were beginning to get a little stale.

  82. Ingrid Nagri

    they still got it,

  83. Miss Orange

    chris the hottest

  84. mikey0188

    Absolutely amazing sound and still I hear the roots from allegiance in there. Embrace the change guys no band can always stay the same no matter how much u want them too.

  85. zack de coco

    Any Clean Voice??? SHIT!!! are this is DEATH METAL??
    wheres OLD ABRB MUSICALITY!!! JERK

  86. iHEARTthrash13

    Cleans kinda remind me of Killswitch Engage a bit

  87. J Love

    Yeah this is basic

    thebigcheese3000

    Dante Love Nothing is more basic than what you like, I'm sure.

  88. harold namen

    el vocalista es justin gaybers ? por q se parece u_u

  89. John Taylor

    Really love this band, 3 very good albums.

  90. Dark Matters

    What kind of guitars and amp are they using.? Its very nice and has something special to it and different.

  91. Dante Benites

    Ptmr ahora casi todas las bandas de deathcore quieren meterle el canto limpio u u chelsea grin suicide silence oceano hctk a donde vamos a parar

  92. Luke Hernandez

    This band is definitely taking a different direction, but they're still awesome.

  93. gamawan ardiyanto

    As Blood Runs Black posthardcore version :) very cool right?

    SYNDICAIDRAMON

    How on earth is this Post-Hardcore?

    Xenofob

    No as blood rund black plays now melodic metalcore

  94. 420CARNIFEX

    great sound more mature and structured better ! all hail the new ABRB !

  95. Erick López

    Un lujo haberlos tenido en México

  96. hardrockerbuilder

    I still enjoyed it, could do without the cleans but at least he sounds like a man. It's still pretty fast and heavy and I'll definitely look into this album! They have changed but they didn't go completely to shit and I like that. I mean holy fuck look at all that remains. They're still somewhat heavy but they won't be the same

    thebigcheese3000

    hardrockerbuilder The cleans sound good.

  97. Juan D Rivera

    People sometimes annoy the shit out of me. Yes back in high school when ABRB first came out I thought they were the sickest band to come around but I'm also a music fan so I'm always open to new sounds and bands trying new things. Let's remind the people that ABRB has had numerous of new vocalist. The fact that ABRB is still a band is amazing. I'm going to leave with this, As Blood Runs Black now is 10x better than they have ever been. By far there best line up and Ground Zero is an amazing album. Sorry haters but you guys can go eat a dick

    thebigcheese3000

    Juan D Rivera Well said.

  98. eddie dean

    As Bud Light Runs Black 

  99. matthew robinson

    is there any orginal member in this line up ?the drummer looks a little familiar,thats it .still brute music

    Rayan Nasser

    Yeah nick has been at bass since 2005 and it's the same drummer from allegiance
