As I Lay Dying - Shaped By Fire Lyrics

The wise before me chose to refine themselves
Melt away their shortcomings by enduring trials
A process we will all undertake
Even if we try to prevent change

Face it before you are pulled in
Face it while it's still within

Like iron shaped by fire
We aren't born this way
Shaped by fire
We are reborn through pain
We aren't born
We aren't born this way
We are reborn
We are reborn through pain

Though I too have endured fire
I wasn't wise enough to ignite the flame myself
But carried enough fuel for a flicker to excel

Face it before you are pulled in
Face it while it's still within

Face it before you are pulled in
Face it while it's still within

Shaped by fire
We aren't born this way
Shaped by fire
We are reborn through pain
We aren't born
We aren't born this way
We shall reborn through pain

Shaped by fire
We aren't born this way
Shaped by fire
We are reborn through pain
Through pain
We shall reborn
We all reborn through pain

The time has come
To watch the fire grow
Find new things to throw in
Don't let the flames get low
I've grown used to the heat
That makes me reevaluate
What I carry with me
And what should be thrown away

Face it before you are pulled in
Face it while it's still within

Like iron shaped by fire
We aren't born this way
Shaped by fire
We are reborn through pain
We aren't born
We aren't born this way
We are reborn through pain

Shaped by fire
We aren't born this way
Shaped by fire
We are reborn through pain
We shall reborn
We all reborn through pain

    Tim's air punches are the reason we have climate change.

  5. Jerry Wiggins II

    Either they did like 15 takes of the band playing, or that air space was mad crowded

  11. Sean Hales

    One of their best albums so far in my opinion

  12. Matt Berg

    These guys and KSE were a huge part of me falling in love with metal 8-10 years ago. To see both of them on the resurgence they’re on is so fucking badass.

  13. Andrew West

    Dislikes are shaped by turd!!!

  35. mouthforwar6

    This is like a heavier version of the wrenchedness inside, and right now, as this os my first time hearing this song, would say it's a little better than trivium's shit.

  36. FM Radio

    Kmac2021 wrote your intro 2 years ago in his djent wars against jared dines

    Some loser: As I lay dying isn't that heavy.
    AILD: Hold my guitar... wait I need that. Stand back.


    They really are not that heavy. If you think they are then I can show you power metal bands that make this look like pop music.
