Wovenwar - Matter Of Time Lyrics




Pull back the curtain
The one behind it has a different face
The inner workings, the gears are turning at a different pace

Time will change us all

The more that you question
The more the answers aren't what you want to hear

We fight to conceal the truth, but it's all a matter of time, of time
The years wasted, persuaded to smile when it feels so wrong inside, inside

Honesty or deception?
You can only hide it for so long
But we choose to be silent; stick to the story

We fight to conceal the truth, but it's all a matter of time, of time
The years wasted, persuaded to smile when it feels so wrong inside, inside

How can we let ourselves continue this routine?
The artificial beat of a heart that's long since ceased
[2x]

We fight to conceal the truth, but it's all a matter of time, of time
The years wasted, persuaded to smile when it feels so wrong inside, inside, inside

We fight to conceal the truth, but it's all a matter of time

    good news bud 😄

  5. Cole Aiken

    This song hits me in the feels...like a last goodbye to Tim and as I lay dying

  6. Heru Hilmawan

    Awesome.. Please go in indonesian

  7. Jacob Rentoule

    fuck off all of you, just be thankful that they didn't throw it all in because Tim fucked up

  8. Trevor Andis

    This song makes me so sick. It's a phenomenal song, but hearing Josh sing again hurts so bad that AILD is no more. I miss Tim. Wovenwar, you're good. But god dammit my heart belongs to Tim and AILD

    TheGlobuleReturns

    +Trevor Andis get a life ffs

  9. Tømmer

    There's something missing :(

    Yliana Rodriguez

    i agree...

    Tømmer

    @Yliana Rodriguez Hey , check out my channel and see my music :)

  10. Rob

    Is this BFMV?  I've listened to 5 of their songs and can't differ them apart.  Not bad, could be much better.

    Remus Herciu

    @Rob Carrell I'm a fan of both, but I can safely say that these guys are better when it comes to songwriting. Especially considering Bullet's last records.

    Santiago Alexander

    +Rob Carrell Well honestely Wovenwar sounds better than BFMV, Matt's vocals are almost completely ruined, but anyways they are recovering from that huge lost.

  11. t1mman

    I wish they would just forget the other vocal and stick with Josh... His voice is so much better and missing in the rest of the album!

    The Captain

    I know, right? I don't know what they were thinking. Josh should have just taken over.

    Yuki Uzumaki

    I know ur comment is two years old but I agree to a point I Just wish they would use Josh more

  12. Conor

    Guitar tone sounds a bit like the one Trivium had on Vengeance Falls 👍

  13. AXE Distortion

    @Kayleigh Keelyn Grove

  14. Jay Hamilton

    This is so much better than the new Slipknot album. Real musicians = real music. Shit = Shit

  15. Josh Navarrete

    his vocal are freaking awesome!!! fav song off the album!! \m/

  16. Sebastián Espinoza

    El mejor tema del disco, lejos

  17. paul bower

    One of my favourite tracks, leaves me thinking did they need shane. ..... the heavy guitar and catchy chorus makes an old AILD fan happy

    Steve Marston

    +paul bower Josh should have just taken over vocals. Gotten voice training, maybe, but nonetheless.

  18. Reece Dorward

    See them as Wovenwar not as As I Lay Dying. These guys are so talented and write some amazing stuff, beautiful, melodic, well structured compositions. Without expectations or comparison to any other music, just listen to it as it is :)

    flavy1000

    Best comment ever...Tired of people discussing the same old facts...and not just LISTENING!!

  19. Rita Ruiz

    They are moving on now so its okay.

  20. IceCreamPig23

    Everyone just needs to realize this isn't AILD, its WOVENWAR. I also don't understand peoples hate for either vocalist especially since Josh did the cleans for AILD and always did amazing and still does. As for Shane he can't scream I get that but he has very solid vocals as he did for Oh, Sleeper. But again not EVERY single band needs screams, its not every bands style and obviously not this bands style. You want screaming that bad listen to something else not to be rude but its as simple as that, not fair to bring his band down because you don't like them.

  21. Christian Marquez

    But if Tim's voice is used here, they won't be Wovenwar. I understand they want to try a new style but they should get a better vocalist.

    Necrotic Reaper

    what are you talking about? Both Shane and Josh are great vocalist and they do a really good job live.

    Christian Marquez

    Yeah, now I can appreciate Shane's voice. I guess, I've moved on with the AILD to Wovenwar transition. haha. Josh and Shane are both really good. I'm a fan of Wovenwar now.

    Daniel Champion

    +Christian Marquez Did you ever check out Oh, Sleeper? that was Shane' s old band and they were wonderful

    Christian Marquez

    @Daniel Champion​ I haven't man, but now I think that's a good idea. I'm searching for new music to listen to anyway. Thanks

  22. Jeffery Meredith

    This started out sounding like a Disturbed song

  23. Eric Mugford

    they needed more josh gilbert on this album. his vocals were taken for granted on this album!

    Lucas Silva

    @Eric Mugford yeah. and he's amazing live :)

  24. Christian Matthew

    I think the best part about this song is how playing it live so many times and all the harmonies will mold Josh into a seriously pro vocalist..which will in turn affect future albums and live sets. Give it like 3 months.

  25. Devon Randall

    Great song! AILD was cool and all, but he got what he deserved.

  26. Novel Karim

    This song made me realize one thing. I don't care how long it takes but I'll be waiting for a new AILD record. Tim's vocals on this song would fucking blow my ears out. Sadly there aren't any screams in this album. Horrible vocals on a good instrumental album. 

  27. Jesper Daarbak

    i think this is a very beautiful track - what a feel to it

  28. ulifallen chu

    How about you all just leave the band alone with your AILD comments. It's a new band get over it. Yes AILD was fucking great! But thats over now... Seriously, leave the past behind already.

  29. Le DerpityDerp

    Great song... <3

  30. nikothenipert

    This song makes me feel that same sadness what I felt when Tim was convicted as a guilty. I will never hear new music from my all time favourite band, I will never see them playing live, actually I never did. This song truly has AILD feeling in it, and this song is making every AILD fan cry his or her eyes out for those same reasons. This may be Wovenwar but for every AILD fan this is just the last piece of AILD's legacy.

    shaun cooper

    I agree to :(

    Cole Aiken

    You know when Tim gets out as I lay dying will get back together....hopefully we will see more vocals as well

    Pistol Pete

    +Cole Aiken ohhh how i wish you're right, man!

    jose rojas

    well, they back

    Novel Karim

    lol buddy good news for u. they are back

  31. Troy and Tiffany Ulshoeffer

    This goes hard. Great song!

  32. Steven Copice

    Best song on the album!! I just heard the whole thing

  33. Forrist Barker

    Such a sick song! Great album!

  34. Brandon

    i know they say its not an AILD album but it has such an AILD feel to it!

    RedEye

    Yeah, because this would have been an 100% AILD song if Tim wasnt arrested... There were demos of this song around when wovenwar didnt even exist. You can clearly hear AILD in this song, only the screams are missing. But this is the only song on the album where you really have an AILD feeling. (if there are grammar mistakes, excuse this please, I am german).

    IWILLINSPECTYOU

    I thought this song was from Awakened B side tbh.

    AXE Distortion

    @IWILLINSPECTYOU hahaha me too it totally could have been put on there somewhere

    AXE Distortion

    @IWILLINSPECTYOU hahaha me too it totally could have been put on there somewhere

    muserock2367

    If you took the verses of this song and the chorus of My Only Home by AILD they would fit together pretty much perfectly tune wise

  35. Shadden

    Indeed, this song is great, but with Tim's vocals it would be a masterpiece.

    vids4mee

    @ajlyp you're right, its "Asilaydyingwithouttim"

    amjones337

    @vids4mee I laughed way harder at that than I wanted to :P

    Mr. Schneider

    Fuck Tim.

    Mr. Schneider

    @Ella Jayson Fuck Tim. 

    Ryan Xfrost

    +Ella Jayson thats not nice :)

  36. Brood Reaver

    Too bad Tim isn't around anymore to offer his aggressive vocals, this song really needs his screams. Still my fave song in the whole album. Goodjob WovenWar.

  37. baseballjunkey18

    This was good as hell

  38. SuperSJ

    Thanks for this! 

  39. woogiepooh2013

    be waiting for this song ever since released when still known as as i lay dying

  40. Ryan Eckert Art

    Saw this live on their first tour ever. So amazing
