Death Beds
Stray From the Path Lyrics


I know a place
Where the wounded go
For cold souls unaware
With no self control
I know a place
Where the broken and wounded go

You just sit back and listen
And just do what you're told
Never knowing how things
Could have been as you grow old
This is your time and it's wearing thin
Don't let this happen again and again

You can catch me in a storm
Of thoughts and prayers
Sleep away your American nightmare

I won't lie with you in your grave
Sleep away your American nightmare
Sleep, it. Sleep it away,
Your American nightmare

You just sit back and listen
And just do what you're told
Never knowing how things
Could have been as you grow old
This is your time and its wearing thin
Don't let this happen again and again

I may be wounded
I don't need to be saved
And though I'm wounded
I don't need to be saved

I won't lie, I won't lie,
With you in your grave

So put your fist in the air
To the sound of the new beat

God I love this band. This song speaks to me so much. I'm stuck at a dead end job, wasting my life away at 21. All I want to do with my life is tour the world in a band. I don't care if it means I'll be broke. That's my dream, and this song gives me hope to pursue it. Thank you.

I remember the night they released this song. It had about 306 views, and now it has 55,125. Keep it up Stray From the Path, the hardcore scene needs more bands like you.

Sad Wizard

Structures, old Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan are bands that you should definitely check out.

Travis Davidson

wow i remember when this band came through my tiny ass town of mayville ny back in 07 when they were on tour with Lilu Dallas.. they played in a bar the size of a living room and fucking killed it.. and now look at em still fucking killing it, even though they've gotten pretty big... i gotta say Stray is one of the few bands who have truely stuck to their roots as a band without selling out and adding poppy shit choruses or overdone generic breakdowns.. gotta love it
