Stray From The Path - iMember Lyrics




And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining

Nobody should have to settle for this
This is not how it's supposed to be
In one ear and out of the other
This is not how it's supposed to be

Now easy does it, because the kids love it
This is where thoughts go to die
Make no mistake there is nothing the same between you and I

I would never call it jealousy
Because what you have is not what we came here to need
I would call it sympathy
Because what you do is a tragedy

You've been given a stage and you choose to use it to pass through a phase
Brainless and mindless like you've been drinking and someone slipped you a bad drug
Stuck on life support and I'm right by your side and I'll pull the plug
I'm right by your side, I'll pull the plug on your shit

And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining

This is where it ends
I'm sick of all the secrets you've been keeping
And all the kids you've been deceiving
Make no mistake, there is nothing the same between you and I

You, you're just an image for a show
You're just a gimmick with no goals and your intentions are terrible
There's no soul

So lean on your crutch because it must be too hard for you to stand
Spineless and arrogant. Must be hard for you to stand
So ride it out because I know it will be over soon
I won't swallow my pride, and pat the backs of who I despise
I swear this will be over soon

And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining

    And when you're gone, we'll hang a black flag
    With a lighthouse shining
    Nobody should have to settle for this
    This is not how it's supposed to be
    In one ear and out of the other
    This is not how it's supposed to be
    Now easy does it, because the kids love it
    This is where thoughts go to die
    Make no mistake there is nothing the same between you and I
    I would never call it jealousy
    Because what you have is not what we came here to need
    I would call it sympathy
    Because what you do is a tragedy
    You've been given a stage and you choose to use it to pass through a phase
    Brainless and mindless like you've been drinking and someone slipped you a bad drug
    Stuck on life support and I'm right by your side and I'll pull the plug
    I'm right by your side, I'll pull the plug on your shit
    And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
    With a lighthouse shining
    This is where it ends
    I'm sick of all the secrets you've been keeping
    And all the kids you've been deceiving
    Make no mistake, there is nothing the same between you and I

  2. Kris Skulls

    My kind of song.

  3. Hunter Harris

    this is a good song.

  4. Carl Gaebe

    cry me a river

  5. Isaac Fish

    The fat guy is dumb. He claimed that Deftones came out around the same time as Mudvayne? Maybe do your research you fat negative piece of shit and for the love of god please quit trying to do shitty wanna be Tom Morello riffs.....jesus chrsit does anyone else think its pathetic that bands have to strive so hard to be like other bands instead creating their own fucking sound?

  6. ToryAlesana

    but it is about attack the crap.

  7. Ben Stockdale

    Love it when you can actually hear drew screaming through gritted teeth. One of very few fucking genuine bands out there.

  8. blankxeros

    it's going to be funny if the play this on the all stars tour seeing they are playing with Capture The Crown. hahaha

  9. blankxeros

    Caleb was always in the band and always did vocals but they were backing screams until their second album.

    The other guy was nick.

  10. pirateninja9311

    its the guy they came after austin and before caleb of attack attack. He was a real piece of shit and an idiot.

  11. Gage Moeggenberg

    That mistake of a musician from attack attack.

  12. Gage Moeggenberg

    One of their influences was Rage aha.

  13. khhung2

    is it just me or are they like rage against the machine? :)

  14. CPEEZI

    I don't listen to Stray for breakdowns, but holy shit @1:18 is one of my favorite ones EVER. So raw.

  15. Jack Taylor

    I might be late but can someone explain to me who is in the soundclip of this song at the end?

  16. PeripheralDjent

    A display of talent? Listen to bands like Periphery, Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, The HAARP Machine, Animals As Leaders, Elitist, Meshuggah, Structures, Tesseract, Vildhjarta, and Within the Ruins. If you wanna bring up talent, there you go. OM&M is not that talented. The Plot In You is roughly the same genre, so they are more comparable, and their drummer is probably one of the best core drummers ever, not to mention the music is more original, despite the chuggies.

  17. Uriah Graves

    Attack Attack, take notice of the fucking flag.

    Volume's up.

    Lighthouses the fuck up.

    There was nothing the same between you and us.

  18. James McDavid

    of mice and men is one of the greatest bands, idk what your talking about. they are a display of talent

  19. James McDavid

    i like attack but they have been so crappy with there style now so i dont like them

  20. moko9hoko

    hate attack attack! all you want. Beartooth(caleb shomo the singers new band) needs to fucking tour with SFTP.

  21. moko9hoko

    I know how to play guitar, drums and vocals but that doesnt mean shit. Of Mice & Men are very good musicians as are SFTP so stop bitching and complaining that everything is garbage cause you dont like it. OM&M are an excellent band. Listen to the music. Simple as that.

  22. ErmahgerdHxC

    It proves my point i know what music is and Of Mice & Men are fucking horrible.

  23. moko9hoko

    that literally had nothing to do with what i said. Stupid people. Now go back where you belong under your shitty rock. fuck outta here.

  24. ErmahgerdHxC

    Lol ok listen buddy through the years of my life I've learnt how to play drums,bass and guitar im not close minded i simply know a shit band when i hear one .... Fuck up you nugget.

  25. moko9hoko

    Cant think a band is good cause youre the one thats close minded? how sad. I mean is it a bad thing to like another band? Open your mind before your fuckin mouth.

  26. ErmahgerdHxC

    Haha you honestly think Of Mice & Men are good... Thats cute.

  27. O K

    Attack Attack split up, didn't they?

  28. moko9hoko

    that it. really.? just stop while youre ahead..

  29. moko9hoko

    uhh no. Of mice and men are the shit. Youre a stupid close-minded dumbass. You get the fuck out.

  30. Noah Brierley

    i cannot possibly agree with your comment anymore than i already do. Thats one of the best comments ive ever read haha. Its sums up exactly the way i feel about this band!!

  31. J Love

    i used to listin to attack attack but the i turnd 14

  32. moko9hoko

    attack attack WITH austin was better. They sound like ass now. Thats why Of mice & men are so kick ass. Austins a great fucking screamer.

  33. Lance S

    We've done it!

  34. Noah Brierley

    i wish i could like you comment 50 times!! so true

  35. Noah Brierley

    1:19 that whole part is sick especially the riff!

  36. Noah Brierley

    there still generic as fuck

  37. bluto727

    People like you will be the end of talented musicians.

  38. Cory Jones

    if you put hardcore thru a strainer to get all the bullshit out the ending product would be Stray From The Path

  39. Jason Murillo

    who's attack attack?

  40. Derek Kerns

    he was the replacement between austin and caleb being vocalists before caleb moved forward as vocalist.

  41. sk8paradise77

    love their BLEGGHH!

  42. Jordan

    Are you kidding me? New attack attack is ok but the song structures are still weak as shit, Stray From the Path writes way more effective songs, and their production is so fucking heavy for how clean it is

  43. pirateninja9311

    he didnt replace Caleb ...Caleb was still the chubby kid on the keys that no one knew lol

  44. Derek Kerns

    yeah, it was nick barham. the shitty fat replacement between austin and caleb.

  45. pirateninja9311

    that wasn't austin was it? that was the fat one that took his place right?

  46. Noah Brierley

    i'm just telling you what the band has said themselves and i agree with them

  47. Derek Kerns

    who gives a shit about what their ex-vocalist from a dick year ago has to say in an interview which was probably a complete joke? their new cd this means war is a whole shit ton better than their first cd.

  48. ColombianCoke Sniffer

    FUCK ATTACK ATTACK! WORST BAND IN THE SO CALLED "METAL" SCENE. GIVES REAL BANDS LIKE THIS A BAD NAME!

  49. Sebastian Elizondo

    they use the percentage they get from the famous gay bands like attack,make me famous, asking. etc. to fuel the real metal bands on the sumerian list the owner said that himself

  50. Sebastian Elizondo

    marilize leguana

  51. Noah Brierley

    the sound clip at the end of the song is the old attack attack singer being interviewed and he got asked what they're connection to the the hardcore scene is. And they answered it with the dumbest answer ever. He said that they've got heavy ass breakdowns and pink and purple in theyre logo. Which is the fucking stupidest thing I've ever heard because really they have no connection to the hardcore scene which is what he should have answered with but he made up some bullshit

  52. Derek Kerns

    can someone tell me how Attack Attack! got brought into this?

  53. Jake Burgess

    fucking HELL. this is insane.

  54. Noah Brierley

    lol that's not what the hardcore scene does that is what the hardcore scene is against the people who do that are bands like attack attack and asking alexandria who are really only about the image. the musicianship is soooo shitty all they do is have one long fucking breakdown just chugging on a down tuned guitar and they pass for talented musicians somehow

  55. chaoticfirearm

    Butthurt Attack Attack fans, It's not a promotional thing. Stray are calling these kids out on their shit. Straight up REAL HARDCORE in your face. Keep crying, nothing changes the fact stray is 10 times more creative than they are and their musicianship kills attack attack in ever way.

  56. Robert Holm

    well... the thing is... people like different things.

  57. Andy Pandy858

    Are you fucking retarded?

  58. Andy Pandy858

    Really now? I just thought it was a failed attempt to be "djent". I listened to it and thought it was fucking garbage.

  59. Joshua Frazier

    Bleeeeeeeeaaugh!!

  60. Ryan K

    I agree, if you have to diss on other bands to promote your band thats sad. And even if they arent promoting it, why diss on other bands? Lol just makes them look like tools i think.

  61. sergio cuellar

    I FUCKING LOVE the beat in the beggining.

  62. Big Al

    Attack Attacks new album goes hard so quit hating kids!

  63. 22jermz

    @BadkidSkillz You are fucked in the head.

  64. Nilly Vanilly

    You guys are stupid. Yeah they are better then attack attack WITH AUSTIN. But there not better then them now.

  65. iFluxtion

    BLEAGH!!!!!

  66. TheSickening4111

    Best "BLEAKHS! " eVER,<3

  67. JackPowellDrums

    ipulltheplugonyourshit BLEAH

  68. Travis Thornton

    @chaoticfirearm exactly

  69. chaoticfirearm

    Stray From The Path's musicianship takes a fucking shit ALL over Attack Attack.

  70. Drew Farmer

    and why is everyone going on about attack attack?

  71. Drew Farmer

    sounds like a really heavy letlive.

  72. AuroraJordan

    this band knows whats up with music

  73. bojank33

    @notzayne Why? It doesn't accomplish anything, it won't make attack attack stop or make them any better. You just come off as a douche and makes fans of stray from the path look like assholes thus making people who like attack attack resistant to listening to better music.

  74. Dario Arriola

    Gonna see them on Thursday. So fucking stoked.

  75. Kyle Carlin

    Why is there even a dislike button on this song?

  76. John Johnson

    @notzayne You are the reason for the dislikes on the video then haha

  77. Zachary Taylor

    Sick band all around

  78. Vargles

    @Brokethelofi I can say from experience that is it rather mindfucking.

  79. CLEANSING518

    attack attack is a mallcore band.

  80. p2psux5

    @jgoodwin2013 caus theyre on the same label.. obviously haha

  81. Brokethelofi

    THE WHOLE ALBUM MAKES ME WANT TO SMASH EVERYTHING AGAINST WALLS.
    I can't imagine what it would be live.

  82. matt kurpiel

    Attack Attack! is fucking amazing. You know what? SO IS SFTP. Stop starting stupid band drama again, the hardcore scene makes me sick. You all care about who likes who, and what this person looks like. Get over yourselves. Music is noise, not an image. If you don't like the noise, then get the fuck out.

  83. Zayne Graves

    I just posted this on Attack Attack's wall.

  84. Joshua Horn

    legalize marijuana.

  85. ALekz43

    BLEHHH! 1:28

  86. Tyler Baumgarth

  87. ceejay0999

    Kid Rock core

  88. VssSilenced

    @justyn3tears hahaha i dig different vocal styles cause then it doesn't make me feel bad for my vocals haha

  89. Gabriel

    @justyn3tears thats how I was at first lol but then realized that I really like his voice but dont like how repetitive/consistent it is. he should try different notes. But i think this is their best song from this album

  90. ShowPro

    @justyn3tears really cuz i envy his voice

  91. EpicHookMaster

    @justyn3tears You should try a different band then.

  92. Justyn Bomar

    i keep trying to listen to this band but i cant stand the vocals!

  93. Justyn Bomar

    i keep trying to listen to this band but i cant stand the vocals!
