As I Lay Dying - Wrath Upon Ourselves Lyrics




I can only imagine that wrath is being held out
So there will be time for us to be redeemed
But surely wrath is not being held out
So that we may redeem ourselves
For I've seen the madness
Of those who died trying
But is regret only a word that the living possess?
I long to see their faces
Regardless of the decay
For in the eyes of the deceased...

We would see hope in our last day
Inside this dying world
For there is still beauty
Inside this dying world

    This would be the perfect John Wick song

  10. shut IT down

    This song gets me diamonds.

  11. Crebs Park

    Is this their first angry song starting from the first album?

  12. Nathan Thackeray

    I think my favourite song on this album is Forsaken

  13. steve s

    Pandora random stuff brought me here what an excellent song

  14. Trainer Grim

    Idk why, but at 00:55-01:05 I always imagine like 4 dwarfs coming out from behind a rock introducing themselves.

  15. XX Albie

    that f'in outro is epic, leading into the guitar intro to "this is who we are".....all epic

  16. Jason Jordan

    I can only imagine that wrath is being held out
    So there will be time for us to be redeemed

    But surely wrath is not being held out
    So that we may redeem ourselves
    For I have seen the madness of those who died trying

    But is regret only a word that the living possess?
    But is regret only a word that the living possess?
    I long to see their faces regardless of the decay
    For in the eyes of the deceased

    We would see hope in our last day
    Inside this dying world
    For there is still, for there is still beauty
    Inside this dying world

    For what good is there holding off wrath
    If we are determined to bring wrath upon ourselves
    Wrath upon ourselves
    To bring wrath upon ourselves

    We would see hope in our last day
    Inside this dying world
    For there is still, for there is still beauty
    Inside this dying world

    We would see hope in our last day
    Inside this dying world
    For there is still, for there is still beauty
    Inside this dying world

  17. Viridium

    My fav song ever, I can't find any bands or songs like this.

    thaistomp

    as i lay dying is the best band of all time.

    NoxAurea

    Try Heaven Shall Burn. It fills the gap I feel since they split.

    dopp

    try Dillinger Escape Plan

    Bluegrass 7

    At the end of the day when you can't find nothing that sounds like this you should just go with Slayer

    Juan Diaz

    Listen to the Wrath album by Lamb of God

  18. MrxxSelfxxDestruct

    ahah the clean vocals part is so funny in speed 1.25 :3

    one of their best songs !

  19. Brian Salinas

    Came here for 1:25-1:50, idk why I like this part so much (plays again at 2:25 to the end)

    Omar Rodriguez

    Listen to Haste the Days Attack of the Wolf King.

    Theroux

    Because it's the chorus?

    Jay Newz Pro

    @Theroux God damnit, you beat me by 3 weeks... xD

    Jean-Andre Sonnenschein

    I like their clean vocals they sound amazing. Looking forward to hear some clean vocal parts in new songs from them. My Own Grave also is an amazing song. Its a new song and has clean vocals already liked it

    Dimitri Sabadie

    To me, it’s 00:54. The inhale and the guitar riffs, fuck.

  20. RycheRageForOrder

    Mancino crushes all others.

  21. Custody Warriors

    Marching in the enemys camp. Blind, and full of hate. This is not the way our sovereign lord. The alpha the omega told us to take. Resist, pray and keep your soul clean. This is filth...granted its polished But still filthy.

    Jay Cha

    Custody Wars Fuck off.

  22. Ashley Miller

    Kick Ass band! Now Wovenwar though

    zapix12

    +Ashley Miller Yeah, except the singer. I think the tone of As I Lay Dying is a lot heavier, though.

  23. Biff Kelly

    ''For what good is there holding off wrath if we are determined to bring wrath upon ourselves?''

    Biff Kelly

    Sorry but you're wrong.

  24. Spupa

    lolwut

  25. romeomax101

    Their new stuff is kinda sucky, love their old stuff tho:)

  26. Edgar Allan Poe's raven

    Dat chorus,those drums,dat guitar = triple eargasm

    Crebs Park

    You're a good promoter.

  27. Thanasis nos

    probably your brain....

  28. Jonny Wu

  29. Peacock Buttefly

  35. Theblack Emu

    the beginning woke me up today

  36. Nacho Cheese

    Blood Turned To Tears maybe?

  37. RycheRageForOrder

    Every track on An Ocean Between Us kicks serious ass! Also Parallels, Condemned, Upside Down Kingdom, Paralyzed, Moving Forward, From Shapeless To Breakable, and A Greater Foundation.

  38. giavicky

    thanks friend

  39. david anderson

    might want to try lamb of god as well.

  40. giavicky

    Well, thanks mate...I got some exploring to do now:D

  41. RycheRageForOrder

    This is one of their best songs and the sickest metalcore band around. And now 2 peolpe dislike it? You 2 have no ear for goood music.

  42. Rafa Corner

    just hear the last breakdown in through struggle.. 3:30.. its INSANE!

  43. Rafa Corner

    Man, aild is my favorite metalcore band. Try Parallels, and Through Struggle (through struggle is my favorite music, theres a great live in Wacken 2008 here in utube).
    Try the sound of truth too (theres a vid from killrbuckeye playing the guitar, so beautiful). Reflection, Confined, This is who we are, Blinding of false light and I never wanted... Those are all good songs..

    The instrumentals are so powerful...

  44. giavicky

    Could anyone who knows this band alot better then me give me a song name from them where the screaming goes waaay low and the guitar goes to the max?:D I sense very potent instrumentals in their songs, but I can`t find any with low screaming.

    Tom Waters

    giavicky This is metalcore man. If you want great instrumentals and no screaming go listen to Iron Maiden or Metallica

  45. systm1111

    Great quality.

  46. RycheRageForOrder

    Someone dislikes this song! you are a moron!

  47. Jak Reed

    Dat bass. (drum)

  48. Elizabeth Mullins

    The 1 dislike is crazy!!!! This song's awesome!!!!

  49. RycheRageForOrder

    These dude's crush! they play with all of their heart, mind, body, and soul. This is their sickest album! every track kicks ass!

  50. Dihly

    every single time my heart starts to :'(
