As I Lay Dying - Torn Within Lyrics




Through this pain I refine
Tearing me from within
Screaming to be released but held fast by Your love
Hold me here
Break me until my face breathes upon this ground
Outstretched with my head to the floor
Spent of all my strength
Relying on Yours

As I Lay Dying Torn Within Comments
  1. miflintacanga

    I wasnt expecting to to be so blown away considering that they were gone for a whilr and separated.

  2. miflintacanga

    Literally the only thing i dont like much about the album is the art work of the face of the album. I wish they had used the little skull they ve used before .
    But the songs are pure insanity.
    They are awesome.

  3. Justin G.

    This opener riff his hands down the best in the album. So good!

  4. R C

    lost myself in a lot of rap and trance for a bit, but holy shit AILD and Amon Amarth renewed my deep love for metal in like one weekend.

  5. Barış Kaplan

    Legendary

  6. gio lominadze

    KillrBuckeye made a cover on it ,check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNxvxJ7OyM8

  18. Samu The Frog

    I can't express how much I love and always have loved this band

  19. Justin G.

    Lately "my only home" and "torn between" have been poping on my feed in the morning and I've felt the urge to kill dragons for some reasons

    SaintedTerror

    Justin G. Lol me too

  20. Barry Johnson

    Great song! Should be a single!

  21. SaintedTerror

    The build up on this made me cum...

  22. Brother Dave

    Are the members in this band still Christians

    SaintedTerror

    who cares about their religious beliefs…. their music is what counts

  23. Marcus pina

    I consider you guys a serious challenge on tight guitar technique skills, been learning how to play this album and its so much fun and powerful to play from home! Keep it coming!

    SaintedTerror

    any tabs available ?guitar pro?

  24. RantKid

    whose hearts are we torn between? two lovers? two different versions of the same heart (Tim's)?

    Deimonk

    RantKid Estarossa and Mael

  25. zShinra

    Without a doubt one of the best albums released this year

  26. unikatura

    This song is amazing , this whole album is such a masterpiece... I feel special for listening to as i lay dying sometimes.. Thank you

  27. new found life

    honestly i dont know how i started listening to metal again it was weird random even but i dont know this new album isn't too bad of course not as good as back in the day

    Full Dump

    If this was released in 2005 it would have been one of their best. I don’t feel this is aged at all in a good way.

  28. Rox Metalic

    Miss you guys ❤️❤️❤️

  29. Ephexia

    poooooooooo

  30. marcus brawner

    Pulled both ways, but still suspended
    The worst of each, reduced and blended
    Still suspended, suspended

    I thought I was stuck between two worlds
    Because I was not willing to let go
    Recklessly pulled both ways
    But somehow still suspended
    The worst of each, reduced and blended
    But as life unfolded, I realized
    The momentum to drift from side to side
    Came from within, came from inside

    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?

    One heart turned black, the other blue and bruised
    Arms breaking, arms breaking from the dreams
    Dreams shattered, the dreams that I can't reach
    There has to be, there has to be a choice I have not seen

    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one

    One darkened over time burning away the shame
    Erasing hidden insights I did not want to be seen
    The other was beaten from being exposed
    So it hurt less to never hold it close

    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    So why would I hold on? I'll trade them in for one

    Neither heart had power to fill my veins
    Or be the source of who I want to be
    Pulled both ways, but still suspended

  31. Nati የጨርቆሱ

    The last chorus 🥶😞🤘🤘🤘

  32. Roberto Cahuevos

    Best album of the year by far

  33. Ricky Smart

    [Intro: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    Pulled both ways, but still suspended
    The worst of each, reduced and blended
    Still suspended, suspended

    [Verse 1: Tim Lambesis & Josh Gilbert]
    I thought I was stuck between two worlds
    Because I was not willing to let go
    Recklessly pulled both ways
    But somehow still suspended
    The worst of each, reduced and blended
    But as life unfolded, I realized
    The momentum to drift from side to side
    Came from within, came from inside

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert]
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?

    [Verse 2: Tim Lambesis & Josh Gilbert]
    One heart turned black, the other blue and bruised
    Arms breaking, arms breaking from the dreams
    Dreams shattered, the dreams that I can't reach
    There has to be, there has to be a choice I have not seen

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one

    [Bridge: Tim Lambesis]
    One darkened over time burning away the shame
    Erasing hidden insights I did not want to be seen
    The other was beaten from being exposed
    So it hurt less to never hold it close

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    Broken and exposed, collapsing, so why would I hold on?
    I feel torn between two hearts dying, but I'll trade them in for one
    So why would I hold on? I'll trade them in for one

    [Outro: Tim Lambesis & Josh Gilbert]
    Neither heart had power to fill my veins
    Or be the source of who I want to be
    Pulled both ways, but still suspended

    Jorge Rodríguez

    Josh in the intro??? I think that is Shane Blay. Ahahaha

  34. tomat0TM

    fuck me that riff at 0:59

  35. Larklan

    Honestly one of there best songs, the into is fucking great. These guys do metalcore right, heavy riffs but with those clean chorus.

    Christopher Regan

    Not to mention those sick melodic guitar leads and solos!

  36. Michael Reynolds

    This album is absolutely great love this band

  37. Scott Turner

    Fuck yeah as I lay dying back this songs sick as fuck ♥️🤘🏻

  38. AlternativeAlterEgo

    Serious old Ill Nino vibes from this song, especially the faded vocals in the beginning. Overall, this album is killing it

  39. SHADOWZEROKYO

    Their perfect album is here. Tim thank you for bringing metalcore back. The death and clean vocals are perfect.

  40. Ian Bergia

    Best song of the album, by far. I've reproducing it like 50 times in a row

  41. Nick Fyts

    Pulled both ways but still suspended
    The worst of each, reduced and blended
    Still suspended
    Suspended!

    I thought I was stuck between two worlds
    Because I was not willing to let go!

    Recklessly pulled both ways
    But somehow still suspended
    The worst of each (the worst of each)
    Reduced and blended (reduced and blended)

    But as life unfolded I realized
    The momentum to drift from side to side
    Came from within, came from inside!

    I feel torn between two hearts dying but
    I'll trade them in for one (I'll trade them in for one)
    Broken and exposed, collapsing
    So why would I hold on? (So why would I hold on?)

    One heart turned black (burned black)
    The other blue and bruised
    Arms breaking, arms breaking from the dreams
    Dreams shattered, the dreams that I can't reach
    There has to be, there has to be a choice I have not seen

    I feel torn between two hearts dying but
    I'll trade them in for one (I'll trade them in for one)
    Broken and exposed, collapsing

    I feel torn between two hearts dying but
    I'll trade them in for one (So why would I hold on?)
    I'll trade them in for one!

    Neither heart had the power to fill my veins
    Or be the source of who I want to be
    (Pulled both ways but still suspended...)

  42. Miguel Angel

    Masterpiece :')

  43. Gianluca Gasparri

    you can able to make cry a stone by your songs

  44. Nelson Zaludek

    They crushed it with this album, and Torn Between is the best song of all!

  45. Joaquin Campos

  46. Fatallica

    of all the metalcore bands that have sold out the past few years and went radio friendly, im glad these guys stuck to their roots. thanks for bringing me back to middle school with this new blast from the past

    Trueyou brands

    @Eddie Pie check out sernade the sinner

    Travis blededede

    Fatallica

    ChaosPrototypeIX

    There is shitton of metalcore bands that arent like that. You are talking about those most known metalcore bands that everyone who doesnt even listen to metalcore knows of. But majority of metalcore bands are still making great music.

    Jean Franco Zarate

    @Andrej Masarovic No, it doesn´t have it, Shaped by fire it´s actually the second album without a skull on the cover

    Daniel ferreira

    Shadows are Security has a skull, it's just the "shadow" over the moon. Have you never noticed that?

    Andrej Masarovic

    @Daniel ferreira Exactly 🔥

  53. Jorge Rodríguez

    Shane Blay in the intro 😉😂

    Michael Fernandez
