Wovenwar - Honor Is Dead Lyrics




Life and death are shaking hands with no regard for my futile plans
And I've licked the wounds and tasted red and nothing mends me now that honor's dead

Life and death in every breath, I hope I choose the words that sell us best
And I've made my bed in the viper's den
Nothing can save me now that honor's dead

I can't rely on this anymore
I can't rely on this anymore

I watched them weave the noose around me
I watched them raise the gallows high
Never saw the fools that hung before me
Never saw a warning sign

Life and death are shaking hands with no regard for my futile plans
And I've licked the wounds and tasted red and nothing mends me now that honor's dead

I can't rely on this anymore
I can't rely on this anymore

I watched them weave the noose around me
I watched them raise the gallows high
Never saw the fools that hung before me
Never saw a warning sign

I watched them weave the noose around me
I watched them raise the gallows high
Never saw the fools that hung before me
Never saw a warning sign

My face is turning blue
From up here it's the best view
My neck is breaking from my own weight
And I'm supposed to say thank you

I can't rely on this anymore
I can't rely on this anymore

I watched them weave the noose around me
I watched them raise the gallows high
Never saw the fools that hung before me
Never saw a warning sign

I've licked the wounds and tasted red and nothing mends me now that honor's dead

    Γαμάτε παιδιά. Κι είς ανώτερα...

  2. James Espinoza

    i love how the vocals are crunchy on here compared to first album. Bringing out that "OH SLEEPER" vibe!!!

  3. AngeloIppis42

    What's this madness?

    Two different bands members get together and made a group and it sounds.......different?!?!?!?!?
    But how could this beeee?

    I dont hate Wovenwar, my ears are pretty tolerant and i know how difficult it is to sound different when the are 4 people coming from the same band with solid musical signature. This album sounds like Oh, Sleeper featuring Josh Gilbert of AILD.

  6. flavy1000

    Now that AILD is back...Stop arguiing...!!Wovenwar is musically better , or in another level , than AILD..and I think lyrically also..
    But , that said, AILD is unique, and the sound and power they all have together as a band, makes it what it is...
    Something very special to me too!!
    Long live both bands...and hope Tim has finally changed his mind
    Wovenwar is truly epic sound..Voices and drumming, composition, guitars , make them one of the best late bands out there =)

  7. Alice in Payne

    Time to say goodbye to this garbage now Tim is back.

  8. Steven Sh

    There will always be hate on any new band that is made up of musicians from another kick ass killer band. With that said this is some great music as well and shows how great they are as musicians to be able to go in a different direction and still knock it the fuck out.

  9. isunktheship

    Time to welcome Tim back..

  10. YD.X

    really great album honestly, coming from aild album's this holds its own in a different way. like a mix between Oh, sleeper, aild, underoath, and especially thrice.

  11. Matthew O'Connell

    Compared to their first album. Utterly dissapointed.

  12. Alex Robinson

    tim was good i miss him but this band is a step up from aild and josh's vocals are amazing and nick is still the best guitarist if people want aild then listen to them its like all bands start heavy but after years there go a little main stream but still this band is great thumbs up .

  13. David Velez

    This album is fucking awesome! I always run into Nick and Jordan around town, they're super cool, nice metal dudes!!

  14. Andrew Timmons

    What pedal makes the sound at 2:51 ? I need iiiittttt

  15. Nate Somers

    Hoping this one is less generic popmetal

  16. sonny lockwood

    man, tim really made aild

  17. Joe Whaley

    More metal Thrice-of-old. Get back with Tim boys

  18. Ryan H.

    Dear everyone comparing Wovenwar to AILD, the old members of AILD clearly stated that this was a different style, so it's really unfair to compare it and the new vocalist to what once was. If you don't like it? leave and go listen to AILD. If you do like it? Cool keep listening.

  19. Austin B

    Was hoping this album was heavier than the last. Nope. Depressing, your talent is being wasted on this mainstream garbage. At least we still have As I Lay Dying and Austrian Death Machine. True metal.

  20. Tommy Patton

    Can someone help me understand why I like the screaming on this album? I normally don't like screaming. Is it the type of scream? The way it fits into the mix? Something else???

  21. Those_Two_Guys

    I've always loved the back up guys vocals. And always wished he had more mic time. This band is that wish come true.

  22. Skorp Saiyan

    Not too bad. Prefer As I Lay Dying since it is much heavier, but this is still good. They are both completely different bands and music, so can't compare.

  23. Brandon Adams

    I honestly liked the debut album a bit more.

  24. Panos OT

    Their first album was something new and fresh. A blend of metalcore and Gothenburg with clean vocals which I liked. This seems like a lazier effort so far with more generic elements and overplayed riffs... however, the songs still have that certain fun and catchiness. I hope the second half of the album proves me wrong.

  25. Cray

    Sounds great but... any solo? Nah? ;-;
    EDIT: Found one! >.<

  26. Miguel Esguerra

    JUST LIKE THE OLD AS I LAY DYING AND THE NEW VOCALIST IT SOUNDS LIKE BFV

  27. Qwerty Asdfg

    If Jesus can forgive Tim so can As I lay dying! Lets gooooooooooooooo plus we can get Oh, Sleeper back together!!!!

  28. Razi

    jeez every song just sounds the same

  29. Erwin Kos

    why he killed that bitch not himself ;-)

  30. Claudio O.

    tim we are waiting for you and no more bullshit!!!!!
    i think tims voice is the train for this band, no tim no power no matter how good and heavier they play!
    no tim no identity in my opinion.
    this is a good album with a voice that dont fit!
    more anger my friend!
    tim you're the beast and i dont give a fuck about your personal life!

  31. Jumps v2

    It took me a bit to leave As I Lay Dying for this band, but man I don't regret it. I guess it's because I'm a guitarist and prefer good guitar over good vocals lol. Although I do love the vocals in both, the guitar is where it's at!

  32. Crit Nasty

    As I Lay Dying8===D (_v_)Alter Bridge = Wovenwar

  33. Kuko

    i was kind of praying for listen mdm like this again, this is the good continue of in flames

  34. Eduardo Campos

    Cadê os BR?

  35. Matthew O'Connell

    This album isnt that good. Only good song on here is honor is dead. The rest of it sucks

  36. Rumplitschka

    Im here for the guitars, nick and phil are an awesome duo and they've inspired me so much with AILD to learn their songs and to improve myself over the years. I was really glad to hear that they've both started over with wovenwar and i really dig what they've put out so far. You can clearly hear that they themselves have progressed their playing and sound which intrigues me even more. Shane is doing an awesome job singing, clean and distorted alike. Progression for an artist is essential and i find it unfair that they are being judged for somebody in their past that didnt live up to his own words.

  37. PredaOiza NPI

    Really nice :)

  38. SERHAT TARHAN

    come back tım

  39. Francis Lefebvre

    Man does I love the drumming of Jordan Mancino combined with the voice of Josh Gilbert, they're both so powerfull and complete :D

  40. Roberto Canchola

    Is this a Christian band?

  41. Seed Creative

    Better than AILD. Musically this album destroys AILD. Only reason I'm saying this is bc people keep bringing up AILD. I LOVED them but Tim is a prick. 🤷‍♂️

  42. Jon Liebelt

    the lead singer is Christian but this is a fucken good album

  43. 46ScootsMuhGoots42

    Compared to their first album, personally i was a fan of the faster pace that their self titled had. Then again that maintained the old AILD sound more. If this is going to be a new project all together it's understandable they are taking a new route to attract a new crowd of those who may not be overly fond or familiar to the original band at all. It's good, Is it comparable to AILD good? Hardly, but a good album none the less. I think we (long time fans) are all just expecting an As I Lay Dying reboot and will be disappointed if we continue holding those hopes.

  44. J. Smith

    this is great musically, but Tim belongs in this band. The new singer doesn't have what made the former band monstrous.

  45. chuckles 9513

    As I Lay Dying ozzfest 2017 comeback with Tim ?!?! :D that would be the shit

  46. SmokingBirds

    this is great metal!

  47. Stefan The Dude

    Fuck me, this is not bad compared to the first album.
    But still, I miss tim and his vocals.

  48. James Belland

    Can't get used to the vocals going to listen to the old Aild

  49. DAVIDW 1999

    Confession fucking awesome song

  50. Jacob Beck

    Here's my opinion. Wovenwar has absolutely no ties with AILD. They are two completely different bands. A good way to explain this is Pantera and Damageplan. When Pantera fell through, Vinnie and Dimebag buried Pantera's sound for good. It was done and had no connection to Damageplan. After Dimebag's passing and HellYeah formed, Damageplan's sound was buried as well. Those are Vinnie's words. That being said, good album. I look forward to hearing more from Wovenwar.

  52. Frank Taljaard

    This album is Amazing! Great riffs, Great lyrics, and I think the vocals are much more versatile than the debut album.
    As someone who will always be a huge AILD fan by heart, I think Wovenwar are doing their own thing in an awesome way.

  53. Godstronaut Tide

    And I'm still here trying to find pics with Tim's manboobz......

  54. Joel Kennedy

    Man you guys never fail to impress. Amazing!!

  55. Antonite

    I'm gay for this band

  56. William B

    I think it's good and just a bit above the generic stuff. A high school version of myself might have enjoyed this a bit more than I do now, though. Just personal taste.

  57. Tinkerbellend

    as i lay dying reunite now thanks please im welcome.

  58. DEVILDOG 7511

    I do miss as I lay dying but these guys definitely pulled off a great band.

  59. RunawayDevil21

    This album is amazing, woven war was good in their first album, but this one is anazing.

  60. Lenny Fence

    The more I am stunned about how great this album is, the more shocked I am seeing these few views... they deserve way more attantion!

  61. joe winkler

    Please stop with the gay chorus parts its fucking played out its weak it ruins good music minus the gay chorus shit this bands solid

  62. Xavier Rivera

    If you don't know it's all the dudes from as I lay dying it's decent. But knowing that makes me expect much more. Especially musically

    Tuv W

    No. it's NOT "all the dudes"; the MOST significant is missing ... and this emo whining vocalist only takes the edge off everyone else's musicianship. Well, actually, he also makes me sick ... KNOWING what COULD be, while hearing this nancy bitch.

  63. Kuba Cywiński

    I just found it. pretty happy that i just found it.

  64. Glove Ripper

    Alright folks, I have some shit to say. This isn't As I Lay Dying. I understand it's a lot of the same members, but it's a completely different band. Also, why are people still bringing up Tim? Why are we even giving him the satisfaction of mentioning his name? Did you guys forget he literally tried to pay someone to KILL his wife? That's a thing that happened. He's a piece of shit. Scum of the earth. People like him don't deserve respect or anything at all, for that matter. Let him rot in prison. We're all just fine without him.

  65. kozlik12

    This is dope af, but AILD was and always will be my favorite band of all time

  66. Borna Loncaric

    lol guys this ain't AILD, it's a completely different band. 'tis a pretty mint album!

  67. Zombl337

    One of the best albums ive listened to in quite awhile, and their first was good, but mediocre imho

  68. Static Klingon

    Heard "Lines in the Sand" on XM this morning. Love the mix of singing and heavy metal/screaming. The guitar is pretty awesome on that one as well.

  69. Dangerous2099

    Trendy bullshit

  70. Jan Solo

    I like the first album more. On this one nearly every song is knida the same and sound exacly like every other Core Metal band who trys to be a mix of Bullet For YM Valentine and Bring Me The Horizon.

    Quentin Gosset

    I agree!

  71. Андрей Кузьмин

    мне насрать. I want AILD BACK!!!

  72. Albert Bibikow

    Tim Lambesis huehuehue

  73. Albert Stymon

    They had to move away from their old AILD style in a way, people can't accept the fact that Tim is responsible for his own actions.

    ALFREDONATOR

    Albert Stymon. But tim is back and better than ever

  74. Stephen Genua

    I LOVE THIS ALBUM! It honestly took a bit to grow on me but it is pretty incredible. The self titled album will continue to be my favorite offering from Wovenwar for now but, who knows what the future holds.

  75. OJ McClanahan

    Compared to the first record this is horse shit. Don't care for it at all.

  76. Justin Ridenour

    Love both of their records. I like the first one more but there are some really solid songs on this record. I'm just sad Phil left the band.

  77. Misanthropy

    Wonder what the inspiration behind the lyrics to "Honor Is Dead" is.

  78. Amber Meeks

    Awesome music

  79. divided123

    So much Dustin Kensrue in those vocals. Cleans and Screams. Definitely feel it on World on Fire and that verse in Compass? The "Oh what horrors await me" line is a straight Dustin melody from Red Sky. Luckily Dustin is a great vocalist and Shane pulls it off very well here. Not sure why this album isn't getting more buzz?

  80. Sebastian Turton-Wall

    Stones Thrown. so good

  81. donni dark

    Muy chuletón este disco, ya se extrañaban esos riffs tan potentes y melódicos. Ya liberen a Lambesis !

  82. theundick

    Miss Tim Lambesis :((

  83. Pedro Alves

    i swear! i hear matt tuck from bfmv singing!

    TheDarkestNights

    Pedro Alves Not that close, but a little similar

  84. D G

    i was pumped for wovenwars first album... but if i can honest this is just generic metalcore material.. not that im complaining... its a great album.. the harmony between the guitar and vocals is beautiful at times and makes this album shine... its just... idk. kinda bland...

  85. Jorge Yanovsky

    I miss AILD

  86. Dima Malovaniy

    really, looks like sound for girls..

  87. Rennan Augusto

    CADE OS BRASILEIROS
    ???

  88. ExcelUrLife

    I do like this, but I will have to share my own opinion. Those screams need to be deeper, and no, not Tim deeper. Great job though!

  89. dylan atkins

    I hear the as I lay dying in it sick album love it

    whitesune

    That's because their all former members of AILD except the lead vocalist.

  90. Orx Icx

    Better than In Flames

  91. TheDarkestNights

    That was short. but I enjoyed it anyway

  92. Clozic

    Will be an Honor is Dead Tab Book available on http://www.sheethappenspublishing.com/ like the first album too?

  93. Michael Barbour

    This was what I was looking for in an album great guitars great vocals clean and screaming amazing drums this album has it all

  94. Claire DA SILVA

    Album magique!!!!!

  95. Leland Bacon

    Josh Gilbert needs to do some solo stuff his voice alone would make me buy 100 copies.

  96. jacob meilleur

    Pretty good album! I was a huge fan of their first album, as well as AILD, and i'm not disappointed with this one. Heavier tha the first one, it's nice that they don't do the same stuff over and over again

  97. Anthony Garttmeyer

    Love this album guys! Wonderful melodies, great pacing & the vocals are so clean. Don't listen to any of those people who try and compare to you As I Lay Dying . . . their just having a tough time excepting this is a different band. I was super bummed about what happened to AILD because they hold a special place in my metal upbringing. But now with Wovenwar I can be happy again . . . its not AILD but its something new and just as special. Can't wait to see what you do in the future and keep that unique sound alive!

  98. Joshua Weeks

    nothing will ever top matter of time

  99. Joao Carrillo

    A really solid album!! The mixture between the strong and soft is perfect and the voice is on the right spot!! One of the best bands in the last years. They did a great good job in composition as always!
