Senses Fail - The Path Lyrics




Look in the basement of your heart
There is a light that just went dark
Look through the wreckage to find reverie
There is a truth that we all must see

You waited for someone to come and save you
But you are afraid to see the truth
The insecurities that you cling to
Will steal the beauty of your youth

Take comfort to know, take comfort to know
That we are reborn together, reborn to follow
So hold high young hopes
Find what you love and let the rest all go

Hearts
Burn
On
And it takes
More strength
To move on
Hearts
Burn
On
And it takes
More strength
To move on

Dig up the nails, pull up the floorboards
Come to face to face with your subconscious mind
The devil, the sinner, the saint, they're all in our blood
But we must choose the path that we walk on

We get to choose the path that we walk on
Light the flame in your soul and burn on

Hearts
Burn
On
And it takes
More strength
To move on
Hearts
Burn
On
And it takes
More strength
To move on

Don't be afraid
To stumble and weep
Enjoy the journey
Even when it's steep
The mountains teach
Us to rise up and reach
Enjoy the journey
Even when you're weak

Passion pushes the urge
Your love of life determines what you're worth
Go now and unlearn
And burn, and burn, and burn, and burn
Look in the basement of your heart
There is a light that just went dark
Look through the wreckage to find reverie
There is a truth that we all must see

Hearts
Burn
On

  2. Matthew Lust

    Love It!!!!!!

  3. Boogie 93650

    I first heard this song in prison, I was on the 2nd year of a 5 year sentence and it was my 3rd time in prison. I was a total fuck up. This song made me realize that it was ok to care, I never cared about anything including myself. I fucking love this song. My life is awesome now and it all started with this song.

  4. TheAth

    this reminds me of stick to your guns for some reason... fucking great

  5. T4T3RT0T5

    Holy dog balls this is metal as fuck \m/

    "The Path"

    Look in the basement of your heart
    There is a light that just went dark
    Look through the wreckage to find reverie
    There is a truth that we all must see

    You waited for someone to come and save you
    But you are afraid to see the truth

    The insecurities
    That you cling to
    Will steal the beauty of your youth

    Take comfort to know, take comfort to know
    That we are reborn together,
    Reborn to follow

    So hold high young hopes
    Find what you love and let the rest all go

    Hearts
    Burn
    On

    And it takes
    More strength
    To move on

    Hearts
    Burn

    on

    Dig up the nails,
    Pull up the floorboards
    Come to face with your subconscious mind

    The devil, the sinner, the saint
    They're all in our blood

    But we must choose the path that we walk
    On

    We get to choose the path that we walk
    On

  7. Khori Jones

    the only band that COMPLETELY changed its style and is still great

    Ashley Askew

    Maybe not the *only* band......Deftones have completely changed their style and they are good ;) But yes, it is very difficult to pull off.

    Rebel Gaming

    Ashley Askew Don't forget Silverstein

    Jay Burris Wayne

    Khori Jones Don't forget Taking Back Sunday and From First to Last

  8. Aaron Newell

    Senses Fail turned the fuck up

  9. Isaac Gowan

    This song has been helping me through a lot lately. 

    Punkie747jhg

    Dude this song helped me get my life together and find the motivation to progress in life and get sober lol no joke

  10. capostatus937

    that breakdown tho

  11. Ruth Warburton

    best. song. ever. 

  12. Stacey Hunt

    I can't think of a single song by Senses Fail that I can't relate to whole heartedly. Some remind me that no matter how awful things get, or how I feel, I am not at all alone in them. Others give me hope - If exit to these terrible thoughts and feelings where found by others, maybe there is hope for me yet. I wish I could say that was enough.

  13. Holden Harris

    This song is Senses Fail at their heaviest and most mature yet.

    Noah Brook

    Holden Harris up there in one of their heaviest songs for sure !

  14. Indignation Of Chaos

    This is a song that describes the truth behind the life we live i am 1 who knows the truth i am not a bot i am not spam i am a person who has become awakened by homelessness, hours alone and a never ending supply of music. i know how to find actual happiness, acceptance,  and power that one day once each individual one of us are 1 and we all become whole we can find the answers to the questions we create and the questions that made everything go wrong in the first place. if you are interested if you want to know the truth and reach full power and potential with happiness that never ends...follow me follow my channel and ill upload weekly, we can do it 1 at a time. if it helps when you stand straight up with both arms to your side head up straight what number do you make...1

    @Travis Martin John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." Do you believe this? If so, confess your sins, and you will have everlasting life in heaven.

    Delano Orchard

    Friend, I think we may have some things in common. Subscribe.

  15. Gino Simplicio

    @TheIranxican Dude I could not agree with you more. You took the words right out of my mouth.

  16. Genous Hazard

    Best song off the album. Even with Dan and Buddy being the only two original members left they still made another great album.

  17. TheIranxican

    WHOAAAA this is NOT the Senses Fail I remember hearing! I'm actually glad they got out of their stupid pussy emo rock genre they were in cause damn that was just garbage. Love the more "Norma Jean" approach :)

    Matt Shea

    Norma Jean was way better.

  18. Cody Gebo

    Couldn't have said it better dude!!!

  19. ♛ Huffdaddy™

    3:01 I gotta learn that rift holly shit!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. ♛ Huffdaddy™

    Senses Fail went to the right fucking direction. Fuck yeah

  21. brandonlikesmusic

    Whiny or not... All of buddy's music is appreciable and amazing. He has so much thought and meaning through his music.. Buddy is one of the only people who truly put music as an art to it's peak.... simply beautiful...

  22. Ruth Warburton

    Im fucking addictied to this song. Awesome.

  23. Tharon Goins

    thought i clicked on a hatebreed video at first

  24. mugofdoom

    Holy shit. This is the same whiny band I used to listen to in grade school?

    They've aged very nicely.

  25. Dunnex V

    I fucking love this album.

  26. Jack Guccione

    the path guides us to our future

  27. ReprogrammedToHate

    Loving the shoegaze influence at 2:18 - 3:02!

  28. Zack Neves

    This album is MUCH better than The Fire, great comeback album for S.F. :)

    Jenita Gonsalves

    I liked da fire...but dis a awesome album

  29. Diogo

    sir, i have to say that i didn't understood a single thing you said, but...yeah! i agree! (i guess)

  30. Jacob Breeze

    0:53 same riff as Right Where We Left Off - New Found Glory

  31. Stief Trappeniers

    soon @ the klinker belgium :)

  32. chad montgomery

    this album is so bad ass i love it lol

  33. Jagrobby182

    i'm getting more of a chevelle feel from this song. awesome track

  34. Ed Begley

    awesome:

  35. TylerDoYB

    perhaps, but who knows, he seems genuinely happy. its his life, we have little to no control over what happens, and he has been through a ton of shit, so writing lyrics like this is amazing!

  36. Yeet Smith

    that's not growth, that's regression.

  37. Paddy TheGent

    Dammit, Buddy...

  38. Jordan Bade

    It's just too different, theres hardly any core vocals anymore. And As I Lay Dyings new albums is great!!! I didn't like it at first but after listening to it a few times It might be my favorite.

  39. Norman Folkes

    i am soo fucking glad to hear from the one band that i will never get tired of!!!!

  40. Norman Folkes

    good thing i love deftones too

  41. HEELwhitman

    It's like Every Time I Die & Deftones had a baby. Lovin' it.

  42. Christopher Ignelzi

    I dont know about that, I like the album it's different and not emo/pop anymore. It is very distinctive and not to mention As I lay Dyings newest album isn't so great.

  43. KyleTPoetry

    This albbum made me very happy. It's nice to see a change in Buddy's lyrics. More positive lyrics are always welcome :')

  44. Mario Torres

    senses fail is the only band i really listen to and have for years

  45. AlaskanForWar

    I love Senses Fail. Have for years now, and this is awesome as fuck.

  46. DanKxInc

    I love buddy.

  47. Jordan Bade

    Yeah sorry I can now cross off Senses Fail from my list of bands who have never put out a bad album. I still bought the album to support them so they can continue making music but this is not the Senses Fail I've grown to love.

    Senses Fail is out and As I lay dying and Silverstein are in the No Bad Album Finals.

  48. John Leek

    People who think this isn't original are just stupid. Their last few CDs weren't original... this blows them out of the water.

  49. I Cup

    At first I didn't like it because I am quite sick of scene bands popping up left and right screaming over the same generic beats, but then I realized that this isn't like those other bands. This album grew on me a bit. Senses Fail has always been able to take an existing genre and morph it into their own sound. And in my opinion, it sounds a lot better than The Fire. In fact, I think all their albums sound better than The Fire. The band seems proud, so I am happy for them.

  50. a1staek

    "and it takes, more strength... to mooo..... AHHHHHHHHHH"

    fan of cows?

    just kidding. awesome song

  51. JacobKilledBatman

    If you don't like it get the fuck out.

  52. Christopher Ignelzi

    I understand where you are coming from I have been a huge Senses Fail fan since 2004. From the Depths of Dreams, Let It Enfold you, Still Searching, Life is Not a Waiting Room, Renacer. They evolved man. Buddy said himself he doesn't want to make Emo/pop/punk music anymore. Just listen to it over and over it will grow on you I promise. I didn't like it at first either and I listened to it about 4-5 times before I even started liking it. Now I can't stop listening to it.

  53. Mean Dough

    i miss the old senses fail...but still,not bad :D i'm hoping for more songs..good luck guys ^_^

  54. Cody D

    im so confused

  55. Elijah whatever

    picture totally moves brah

  56. Martin Bright

    deftones touch there

  57. Mike Disper

    They make music for themselves, not you. Bands evolve. Get over it.

  58. Joseph Lassin

    Not liking the new cd too much. Wayyyy to much screaming, no more originality.

  59. theonlycarl

    Lyrical wise, I think this album was quite an achievement. As far as sounding like other bands, I'd have to disagree. I don't really know anyone else on the scene who sounds 'just like' Senses Fail.

  60. ohalistair

    Says this sounds generic, but misses old Senses Fail.
    LOLWUT?

  61. NecrodevilEvilous

    Amazing song!

  62. hmmshoe

    I've purchased every album to date......can't wait to pick this one up tomorrow.

  63. oh, bother.

    Favorite song on the new album.

  64. Dahlia Dollface

    I just can't get into this new stuff of theirs. They say their growing and moving in a new direction but why does it just sound like they're trying to be like The Deftones and every other uninspired metalcore band making the circuit now? The one reason I latched onto SF was because they were so unlike anything out there. Guess Buddy got a girlfriend and abandoned his atheistic views and lost himself in the process. Sad, really.

  65. Tyler Grant

    how do you get no rhythm* out of this? I can understand if you say its just not your type of music, but clearly you dont understand how recording works. If it was out of time or did have rhythm issues then they would not release it.

  66. Steven vanHeeswyk

    LOVE The Path they have taken! the heavy has been there..they escaped the gallows!

  67. Dusty Simar

    Love it!!! Still miss the old stuff though...

  68. Sophie Harden

    Its got hints of what sounds like there song 'New Years Eve' in parts, but i like it!

  69. StreetlightMonster

    Love the new stuff , deff buying the cd

  70. iowastormtracker09

    I've noticed this as well. Buddy deserves to have someone like that.

  71. TylerDoYB

    couldn't agree more :/

  72. TylerDoYB

    He is spiritual he said it in a interview, he used to have atheistic views, he has grown and so have the fans, now he has a girlfriend too that looks like it is a pretty serious relationship so that is also what has been keeping him "grounded" for a lack of better words, Priscilla Ruiz, even says it on the album booklet, this is the first time i have seen him happy in a long time, as a fan since, Let It Enfold You came out which was around 2004, so i am not complaining, good to see him happy!!!

  73. sickenedmaggot

    NEW ALBUM?! YESSSS! and i am diggin this song. pretty excited

  74. Paul

    I don't like it

  75. Silas Deane

    probably not gonna buy this album, but they were the best band at warped last year. they put on the best performance i saw.

  76. Silas Deane

    i'm a screaming liberal. shut up

  77. Silas Deane

    you listen to eminem? what's wrong with you?

  78. ThatDereKid

    "The devil, the sinner, the saint...They're all in our blood. But we must choose the path that we walk ON."

    Insane, this album will make me a better person as time goes on.

  79. Memento Mori

    Any true fan would know that.. Spirit is retarded. They are the kind of people who make Christians look like dicks. This is definitely unlike anything SF has done before.

  80. PhoenixDog2160

    If you claim to be a SF fan, and this shit doesn't just turn you on...You're not a SF fan. This is everything they should strive to be. And after hearing the album on repeat a few times tonight it's easily their best album to date.

  81. Brennan Geddes

    im lovin these lyrics

  82. Billy VanRaay

    Why is senses fail screaming so much this album ?

  83. rhilsdorf2291

    All those songs you named are pretty much all clean vocals lol

  84. Ayylmao

    That guitar sample in the chorus, it sounds a whole lot like "Right where we left off" from NFG lol!

  85. Colton Frazzle

    I was going to put in brackets ( with the exception of Lady and waves.)

  86. somethingbeaster

    I was going to murder the people who disliked this, but I'm too busy listening to Senses Fail's new songs.

  87. Stephen Patton

    It's a good way to exert/stress emotion. It sounds great to me, and sounds closer to older hardcore. I think the instrumental flows well, if you don't like the raw/distorted/rougher band sound. I suggest to never go to a show. Ever.

  88. Orbsfearbefore8

    Deftoney

  89. deekismusic

    Hey they actually matured a bit.

  90. Dubsteplova96

    I don't think lady in a Blue Dress was that bad.

  91. darcy C

    /watch?v=-ZEf7-R_I28

    check out my drum cover!

  92. Alex Bochel

    Pretty cool actually I like it

  93. HimynameisKegan

    I actually happen to like the new sound from senses fail! as a black man once said "this shit go hard."

  94. KrazieJ89

    Screaming my ass off along with this song. There goes my second of Youtube comment fame lol.

  95. KrazieJ89

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  96. codyjames01111

    Wasn't trying to succeed. I was just stating my opinion as a senses fail fan who does not like the direction that they went in. Man, is it not okay to have an opinion in this country anymore either! Fuck. This country is full of screaming liberals and fascist corporatist pigs. "Oh, you can't say that, how dare you!" If one never gets criticized, how are they supposed to better themselves? Buddy had a band for hardcore music, and that was Bayonet.

  97. codyjames01111

    Stupid because my opinion differs from yours? You should work in politics; you are sure enough mature enough for it.

  98. DBZGod

    Are you stupid guy?

  99. Jason Coleman

    Aint nobody got time for Christianity.
