As I Lay Dying - The Sound Of Truth Lyrics




We have all heard what we wanted to hear
"Truth" that sounds right to our ears

But what wisdom is there within us
To live based on the feeling of our hearts
How many times has instinct let us down
Never to be thought through
Never to be questioned
Say what you really mean
When your ambition calls you
For what use is there in praying
If you will only hear what you want to hear?

We speak of fighting to resist this world
But what about the battle within us?
If we have chosen to live against the grain
Then why are we all facing the same way?
There is no difference between us and them
If we all blindly seek truth from sentiments

  26. Silver Hedgehog

    Tim's vocals in Shaped by Fire are weak compared to this

    He got old and more importantly, prison took its toll on his voice i guess.

  71. Agung Ahmad Baihaki

    sound like AMON AMARTH

    Kevin Van Duser

    Bruh... No 😂😂

    MrDigitalman01

    Don't EVER say that again. That's it I'm calling a hitman. "(Ring)" yes tim? I need you. I know you're barely out of prison but i need one more favor."

  72. MrPCSniperFi

    The song that put this band on my radar back in high school. KILLER tune. The MEMORIES!

  73. Sir Daniel Fortesque

    This song reminds me of my big bro, and all of our adventures growing up.
    Love you brother.

  74. Random Person

    *Truth*

  75. Random Person

    That rings true for you, Tim. You have fallen, but that does not mean that you must remain fallen.

  76. Random Person

    The *truth* rings true. Many people hate to hear it, because they live in darkness.

    They hate to see their wrong come to light, but it is needed. They resist, but we *persist.*

  77. Jack Pan

    Oh my...😱😱😱
    Awesome.

  78. Maniak

    2018 <3

  79. Christian Ayala

    Good for heavy lifting.

  81. mikael cea

    2018 anyone?

  82. J Skullz

    I love every other part of this song hit the chorus. It's better to have a song solid screams than to have a song with predominantly screaming but when the singing comes in the chorus be mediocre as fuck

  83. Asheem Jordx Kujur

    Vocals and riffs 💯 legendary . Everything is perfect . 💯🤘😎

  84. Nightmare

    My new *BEST* song 🤘

  85. A Gamer For Fun Iggums

  88. Randy Hall

    To all the fuckin disturbed fans.... Cover your eyes ........

  89. HAGGIS Toobs

    We have all heard what we wanted to hear
    Truth that sounds right to our ears

    We have all heard what we wanted to hear
    Truth that sounds right to our ears
