As I Lay Dying - My Only Home Lyrics




Like a swarm of flies colliding with a moving windshield
So are our lives on this never-ending road
I have left behind my mark only to be later washed away
And was consumed with the allure despite the inevitable decay

When did the road that I'm on become my only home?
When did this become the one place I truly know? (I truly know)

A journey making us like weeds
Where the wind steals our splendour
But spreads it to the distant fields
Despite our fragile imperfections
Yet shaking walls and wearing wheels
Can never capture my heart the way you do

When did the road that I'm on become my only home?
When did this become the one place I truly know? (I truly know)

I am missing what makes me whole

  3. Zaccaria Palmiero

    What does he mean by shaking walls and wearing wheels? English ain't my native language, so even i know it's a leanguage trick it seems, pretty strange for me. (I literally imagined someone with wheel's leg in a shaking room LOL)

  31. melvin ganaden

    one of my favorite song and band as i lay dying...Nick Hipa reminds me of my late friend "KEPERT"...d way he play guitar and move in d stage...hope to see and meet u guys..\m/

  32. Krispynachos 99

    Kinda ironic how Tim's only home is now a prison cell behind metal bars rooming with a big black guy called Deshaun whom he also calls daddy

    xXAscendingPhoenixXx

    Kinda ironic how Tim was released in December and is now free.

    mega0alucard10

    If you look at Tim.... I think he was called daddy in prison! Because Tim is fucking beast!

    Philip Erdman

    Pretty sure Tim was bigger and stronger than his cellmate. Lol

    Megas Pantelos

    Kind ironic how this “Deshaun” would end up with his throat slit if he messed with Tim too much.

    If you knew anything about Tim you would never have written this nonsensical comment.
    Also if you saw Tim’s physique it is Deshaun that would call him daddy.

    Tim is not about any of that gay shit though so Deshaun should be safe if he remains friendly with Tim.

    One of the greatest advices in life is not to mess with ripped metal heads who are passing through their tribulations in life.

  33. SparklingNexus

    When did the cell that I'm in become my only home?

  34. Tyler Ward

    you have indeed left behind your mark, tim... \m/

  35. WizardsOrb

    I have left behind MOD MARK!!!

  36. Lauro Keeney

    fuck yeeeeeeah!!!;!;

  37. Ruined Ends

    I don't know why the chorus reminds me of the lion king

  38. พูลสิทธิ์ อ่อนพรมราช

    Love song ^^

  39. Kaiden Gage

    love to all my fellow ROCKERS

  40. Shawn K.

    love this song.

  41. TheCameraBackstage

    May God forgive you Tim...

    TheCameraBackstage

    Indeed, and because of the provocation I can't come up with what I should say next! Thanks for opening my eyes like woah...

    Daniel Santos

    He doesn't need forgiveness, he needs music. I'd rather Tim of As I Lay Dying than Tim the fucking bible salesman...just saying

    sunburst402able

    TheCameraBackstage There is no Gods..... I just want his fans to forgive him.

    Justin Keller

    If your god has to "try" to forgive him, I do not want to know your god. This tells me that you have a hard time forgiving him. You judge behind your god. This is my speculation based off of this alone.

    It is humanity that needs to find forgiveness as to not perpetuate pain for anyone. Harboring resentment and judgement is bad for us all. It would be best to make peace with life and continue to love Tim's music.

    We do not know the story, and it shouldn't matter. We could have done the same thing in his shoes. There is a part of the story we do not see. Tim isn't telling us his emotional side. He pegs it on steroids. I highly suspect there is more to it than that.

    He isn't looking for excuses. He faces it every day.

    If we have ever, as individuals, needed forgiveness for something that we saw as impossible or nearly impossible to forgive, we shouldn't find it hard to completely absolve Tim of any resentment in our individual hearts.

    Screamingtilltheend

    @Daniel Santos You know they've been a christian metal band since they began right? Tim has done quite a few interviews on it

  42. Gyan Zetina
