Laid to Rest
Lamb of God Lyrics


If there was a single day I could live
A single breath I could take
I'd trade all the others away

The blood's on the wall
so you'd might as well just admit it
And bleach out the stains
commit to forgetting it
You're better off empty and blank
Than left with a single pathetic trace of this

Smother another failure, lay this to rest
Console yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself, see who gives a fuck
Absorb yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself

I'll chain you to the truth,
for the truth shall set you free
I'll turn the screws of vengeance and bury you with honesty
I'll make all your dreams come to life
And slay them as quickly as they came

Smother another failure, lay this to rest
Console yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself, see who gives a fuck
Absorb yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself

See who gives a fuck
See who gives a fuck
See who gives a fuck

Failure

If there was a day I could live
If there was a single breath I could take
I'd trade all the others away
I'd trade all the others away

not a huge fan of this band but the line "I'll chain you to the truth, for the truth shall set you free," is easily one of the best ever. Also, this song rips.

Dustin Coffey

Damn right but vocal wise he's the best hi and lows

Kameron Waddell

@$ayèd Jr. Agree

E. Clark

Lamb Of God has been playing some of the most pure metal music there is for a long time.
