Veil Of Maya - Livestream Lyrics




From the dust
I rose up and brought hell
Unchained but captive
In hate I dwell
The power controls me
Darkness, the Goddess who knows me

I'm ashamed of what I've become
Sick of myself
Sick of being numb
I'm ashamed of what I've become
I am not enough
I've given up

I'm not who I was
And I wish I was a better man
But I am who I am
I crawl the from the dust
And I've never seemed to understand
But this is who I am

I've disgraced this crown of blood
I am simply not enough
Forgive me for giving up
Salvation can't save what I've done
Lost and stricken with despair
Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
Despair

I long for the moment I no longer breathe air

I'm not who I was
And I wish I was a better man
But I am who I am
I crawl the from the dust
And I've never seemed to understand
But this is who I am

I've disgraced this crown of blood
I am simply not enough
Forgive me for giving up
Salvation can't save what I've done
Lost and stricken with despair
Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
Despair

Accept my fate
Ascending now skywards
My body shakes, the top of this towers
I face the ground as I lean my weight forward
Their digital eyes watch as I fall downward
A final inception, it calls through the air
I pray as I'm falling
The power is there

I'm not who I was
And I wish I was a better man
But I am who I am
I crawl the from the dust
And I've never seemed to understand
But this is who I am

Who I am

  1. Jessie Marsh

    This band is an apparatus for all of our pain.

  2. RUMPLED BAG

    finally he killed himself jeez

  3. Riley Poppleton

    does anyone else think the clean vocals sound like motionless in white?

    Jose Ojeda

    Riley Poppleton no.

  4. Nowraj Cedric

    2:46 : I'm brainwashed, fuck :o

  5. Rai Strife

    Is... is this song about FFVII?

  6. Fabrice Mombo 黎明是好

    I LOVE YOU GUYS!

  7. hollowminds

    2:24 Best part of the song by far.

  8. -AquaLoud-

    Shhhhyt 👂🎶🎶

  9. Fabrice Mombo 黎明是好

    Man i almost cried

  10. C J

    that motif that the singer keeps using is getting pretty old imo. ascending dotted eighths to the 5th (?) and ending on the 4th (?) is littered throughout the entire album. already wasn't a fan of cleans in VoM but whatever you gotta appeal to the 15 year olds now I guess. sellout tactic

    Sethuna

    That's his sound dude, he isn't acting on it. When you find your music identity you embrace it.

    Dylan Ross

    This album is conceptual, so to add motifs to it makes a lot of sense. If you ask me, it's more impressive to insert musical themes throughout an album with subtle differences rather than have everything be completely random. His vocal style has pop influences no doubt but considering the lyricism, screams, and syncopated rhythms in the vocal parts aside from the instrumental parts, this band isn't selling out.

  11. metxlguy

    0:22 that riff boi

  12. thall

    The chorus gives me A Day To Remember vibes, I like it.

    Lyrics: Cover will come
    [Verse 1]
    From the dust
    I rose up and brought hell
    Unchained but captive
    In hate I dwell
    The power controls me
    Darkness, the Goddess who knows me

    I'm ashamed of what I've become
    Sick of myself
    Sick of being numb
    I'm ashamed of what I've become
    I am not enough
    I have given up

    [Chorus]
    I'm not who I was (who I was)
    And I wish I was a better man
    But I am who I am (who I am)
    I'm grown from the dust (from the dust)
    And I never seemed to understand
    Why this is who I am (who I am)

    [Verse 2]
    Now I've disgraced this crown of blood
    I am simply not enough
    Forgive me for giving up
    Salvation can't save what I've done
    Lost and stricken with despair
    Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
    Despair

    I long for the moment I no longer breathe air

    [Chorus]
    I'm not who I was (who I was)
    And I wish I was a better man
    But I am who I am (who I am)
    I'm grown from the dust (from the dust)
    And I never seemed to understand
    Why this is who I am (who I am)

    [Verse 3]
    I've disgraced this crown of blood
    I am simply not enough
    Forgive me for giving up
    Salvation can't save what I've done
    Lost and stricken with despair
    Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
    Despair

    Accept my fate
    Ascending now skywards
    My body shakes
    The top of this towers
    I face the ground as I lean my weight forward
    Their digital eyes watch as I fall downward
    A final inception
    It calls through the air
    I pray as I'm falling
    The power is there

    teamlabam

    Is this about accepting who you are and jumping off a roof?

    Will Zavala

    @teamlabam Have you ever had a dream where you start falling up and when you get to the highest point you lean forward and fall straight back down?

    Antagonists

    Thanks.

    Bilbo TBaggins

    @teamlabam yeah but dont forget the last line you gotta realize the beauty of life and Earth and regret your action because as youre falling you know there is a God.

  14. Tyler Rowe

    Accept my fate, ascending now skyward. My body shakes the top of this tower. I face the ground as I lean my weight forward, their digital eyes watch as I fall downward. A final inception it calls through the air, I pray as I’m falling the power is there.

  15. zifee mayne

    for u boys sayin this is ur least favorite, well its my favorite so suck on dat.

  16. Ryan Brijlall

    Could go without the cleans don't care what anyone says

  17. Adam Good

    I've made it to the end but I still don't understand the concept of the album

    Fuckyourselfgoogle

    it's about a dictator who kills a bunch of people and ultimately kills himself...

  18. Charlie :P

    1. False Idol
    2. The Common Man's Collapse
    3. Matriarch
    4. [id]
    5. Eclipse

    Finally the album who defeats TCMC xd
    (In my opinion)

  19. OMGIDestroyedMatter

    Recorded on Mark's new 8 string wooooooo!!!!

  20. Austin MacLean

    man that chorus resonates

  21. Kyle Lesh

    my fav song on the album

  22. Andrew Rutherford

    VOM albums from best to worst imo
    Eclipse
    False idol
    Matriarch
    The common man's collapse
    ID
    What ever that rare one was called I dont remember but the production sucked

    iknowyouarebutwhatami

    Haha. Dumbass. Common man is by far their best work. Go home.

  23. hollowminds

    God, this chorus ALMOST makes this song not listenable.

  24. Lucas Amaral

    Incredible no less.

  25. Daniel Segura

    I feel this song so hard, especially the chorus

    Pudrino 1990

    Big mood

  26. Maynard Agnew

    Really good song, with the perfect mix of every weird shit I love from Vom. The cleans fit really good in this!!

  27. My Nama Jegg

    Periphery2.0

    Josh Flora

    I wanna see them collaborate

  28. brothercartman

    The album is fantastic with the exception of this song. The chorus section is fucking horrible. Should have left this one out.

    Daniel Segura

    brothercartman na I think it's fine.

    metxlguy

    brothercartman it’s not horrible, it’s just weird but that doesn’t make it horrible

  29. Marquette Roberts

    Fucking amazing!!!!!

  30. Lumine Maverick

    Complete shit. New singer ruined VoM. We get it, you wanted to be a bitch like Jessie and sing.

  31. Marco Padilla Soto

    This is one of my favorite songs on the album. People that think the lyrics are cheesy haven’t listened to the whole album or at least looked at the lyrics for the whole album to understand that this song concludes a story. Not the most intense song by technical terms, but impactful nonetheless. \m/

    Mareguma

    Marco Padilla yeah people don't understand it's a story/concept album apparently

  32. Stephen Evans

    2:45 kills me every time. There's just something beautiful about that part.

    Antagonists

    ITs some soul music. *TRUESOUL*

  33. Julius Caesar

    This is the only bad song on the album. The album is amazing overall

  34. VVORMWOOD____

    least favorite song on the album for me, this and doublespeak i just found nothing interesting or catchy about them. favorite song was whistleblower and pool spray

    Satan

    spooky tay songs were*

    Petao Neff

    I love pool spray also, but can’t shake the “The Bad Thing” vibe it has riff and verse wise.

    Ryan Justice

    Have you like, looked up the lyrics for this song?

    ZombieBroKill

    You must be fun at partys

  35. StevenM801

    diggin this whole album man

  36. censored

    So I've listened now to the whole album and what shall I say?
    - It has some nice, interesting ideas
    - sometimes they get over the top with experimenting, making the different instruments not work well together
    - I think the mixing was bettet in the previous album (though that standard is hard do uphold)
    - For me the best songs are the "follow me" and "tyrant" mostly because they have no cleans (cleans just lose me, I like very hard sound)

    And now gotta listen to some TAIM

  37. Swayt

    HELLLLLA

  38. Nate Bassili

    Most definitely picking up this monster of an album on payday

  39. Muk the troll

    Would be a lot cooler if you came to Seattle 🤷‍♂️

    C.G.Recordings

    Chris Thiel ODISSIA IS SOON

  40. Ghosty Frost

    This is the weakest track on the album IMO.  Still good though which says a lot about the album

    VVORMWOOD____

    this is also my least favorite. i thought this and doublespeak were the worst. i enjoy all the others

    Chris White

    The chorus lets this song down I think, it doesn't really fit the rest of the song (and the chorus lyrics are a bit generic). Still a cracking album though

    Ghosty Frost

    Chris White - I fully agree

  41. Tristan Mock

    2:45 let the groove consume you. my god.

  42. Travis Finney

    this has that 11th hour lamb of god feel

    Qwerty Asdfg

    that's halarious

    Tj Cherry

    god i hope you're kidding

    Daniel Johnstone

    Travis Finney agreed. I also hear a bit of 'bleed' by meshuggah in this

  43. tristananvilcaster

    This and Graveyard Shift are my 2 favorite albums of the year so far! Also this is one of my favorite songs off the album :D

    Mr.Keiser

    tristananvilcaster tbh Graveyard Shift was a huge dissapointment. MIW nowadays makes music just because they have to. Is hard to hear or feel the "passion" they put on that album. It just a heavier Reincarnate (which was a horrible album as well)

  44. eXiLE CarNiFeX

    Just as I thought Wage War's "Deadweight" was gonna be my album of the year, this drops! Fuck guys, this song is amazing

    kerminator09

    Catalyst CarNiFeX ABR did just drop an album a couple weeks ago, 'Phantom Anthem', and it's a AMAZING! I Had never personally liked any of their other albums, but this one is pretty damn good.

    Brittany Backus

    I just saw wage war. fucking love them. it was a damn good show.

    eXiLE CarNiFeX

    Brittany Backus Lucky! They're still not coming to the UK :( Would kill to see them

    Brittany Backus

    well hopefully they do! unfortunately they opened for a day to remember. they should have been the headliner.

    eXiLE CarNiFeX

    Brittany Backus Literally my two favourite bands, when I saw that on instagram I nearly died of excitement on behalf of the people who could go xD

  45. Daemon Trigger

    Overhype

  46. Collin Aldridge

    That chorus was so cheesy 4-years-ago metalcore, why did that have to be in this song? Some of the clean choruses are not total cringe, but they have got to stop trying their fucking hardest to put one in EVERY song. That's not what VOM is about. This song and album are fine other than that. It just sticks out like a sore thumb in the worst possible way.

    Andrew Paul

    Collin Aldridge “that’s not what VOM is about” I’m pretty sure they can do whatever they fucking want

    Lucas Clark

    Yeah lmao, comments like these are just pathetic these days, marc literally just did an interview about this, and literally called people like this losers who didnt get enough attention from their parents. He also said he doesnt even acknowledge bullshit like this

    spaghxxt

    “This isn’t what vom is about” tf? You their dad? Fucking retards that comment this shit make my day

    Osiris

    Collin Aldridge Holy shit. People are still upset VoM changed? Move the fuck on

    Mareguma

    It's called dichotomy.

  47. Jeff Neeley

    Shit yeah!

  48. Fuckyourselfgoogle

    This song/album manages to make me feel bad for a genocidal tyrant

    Antagonists

    You shouldn't feel like that.

  49. MeowCore

    GIVE US ALL THE LYRICS

    Fuckyourselfgoogle

    genius.com has all the lyrics, fyi

    Look them up dumbass

  50. Allan Madhuram

    DAT Chorus doe... #hooks4lyfe

  51. Leo DelMat

    "I'm not who I was, and I wish I was a better man but I am who I am"... so fucking identified... lets get wasted guys!! VoM for the win!!!

  52. I Like Concerts

    Good Jams

  53. tenaciousjoe24

    1:30 someone better pick up those LEGOS before somebody steps on them

  54. Life of Ebb

    1:31 is so Monuments and it's perfect

    Andrew Paul

    Ericson Bernardo it’s actually so VOM

    Jessie Marsh

    How dare you.

    Lukas Z

    From the dust
    I rose up and brought hell
    Unchained but captive
    In hate I dwell
    The power controls me
    Darkness, the Goddess who knows me

    I'm ashamed of what I've become
    Sick of myself
    Sick of being numb
    I'm ashamed of what I've become
    I am not enough
    I've given up

    I'm not who I was
    And I wish I was a better man
    But I am who I am
    I crawl the from the dust
    And I've never seemed to understand
    But this is who I am

    I've disgraced this crown of blood
    I am simply not enough
    Forgive me for giving up
    Salvation can't save what I've done
    Lost and stricken with despair
    Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
    Despair

    I long for the moment I no longer breathe air

    I'm not who I was
    And I wish I was a better man
    But I am who I am
    I crawl the from the dust
    And I've never seemed to understand
    But this is who I am

    I've disgraced this crown of blood
    I am simply not enough
    Forgive me for giving up
    Salvation can't save what I've done
    Lost and stricken with despair
    Crippled kingdom lies unrepaired
    Despair

    Accept my fate
    Ascending now skywards
    My body shakes, the top of this towers
    I face the ground as I lean my weight forward
    Their digital eyes watch as I fall downward
    A final inception, it calls through the air
    I pray as I'm falling
    The power is there

    I'm not who I was
    And I wish I was a better man
    But I am who I am
    I crawl the from the dust
    And I've never seemed to understand
    But this is who I am

    Who I am

    This new album is on fire, Awesome!!!
    Great cleans

  57. Ariel Isaac

    wow this new periphery is great :3

    Diction

    Honestly this is kinda better than Periphery.

    Mike Sokolowski

    this mf

    you must be omnipotent to see that far into the future. do tell me more

    Tristan Dee

    Robert Archer just because you falsely assert that veil is more technical than periphery doesn't make it true. Lmao. Veil clearly tried to imitate periphery on this album and didn't come close.

    Tristan Dee

    Although they are two separate bands with their own unique sounds, you can tell a few of these songs were very Periphery influenced.... love both bands but periphery can't be touched by VOM

    Rhett Barragan

    Tristan Dee other way around dude. Veil can't be touched by Periphery, and are clearly the overall "better" band, though Misha is very respectable my ear leans more towards Marc's style. Overall, VoM just makes more memorable and powerful music than Periphery wtf dude lmao

  58. alan hollinger

    and wish i was a better man but i am who i am!

  59. Scott Margreiter

    Good shit!

  60. JN Perez

    The best album of 2017, period. \m/

    Tim Williams

    thiscuzimstupid lucky dude!! I was lucky enough to catch them before their new album dropped, was a small gig but fun:)

    Tim Williams

  63. J Morris the Review Guy

    This is such a great song, as is the entire album! I'll be purchasing it soon enough. Really fantastic progressive metalcore. I love this band's earlier works, and own Eclipse on physical copy, but compared to deathcore, this style is so much more technical and amazing! Your cleans and growls and screams are on point, and I find it hard to believe it's all one guy. But still, great job! lol. Hope everyone here agrees!

    tenaciousjoe24

    He sounds the same live! Definitely a talented guy!

    Scott Margreiter

    I saw him in Baltimore just a couple weekends ago and the dude is legit! He can do the deep angry shit and the angelic choruses just as good live..even on the shitty set up they had at soundstage that day. I cant wait to hear them play this album live.

    SeppukuFever

    Great to hear someone else appreciate real talent and ingenuity
