As I Lay Dying – Redefined

Single kedua dari As I Lay Dying, meneruskan cerita “pengampunan diri” akan pengalaman pahit yang dirasakan dan dijalani oleh Tim Lambesis dari apa yang telah dideranya. Pada lagu ini Tim mencoba untuk membagikan sekaligus membangkitkan semangat untuk terus melanjutkan hidup dengan penuh kekuatan yang bersumber dari luka-luka kehidupan.

Hal yang sangat patut diacungi jempol, karena alih-alih berkutat dalam rasa bersalah, Tim menunjukkan permohonan maafnya dengan menyebarkan kisah positif dengan berkarya bersama As I Lay Dying. Lirik lagu pun ber-evolusi menjadi lebih bermakna dan berisi ketimbang hanya menceritakan rasa peluh.

Musik yang dibawakan cukup berbeda pula tapi tetap As I Lay Dying yang riff-riff gitarnya berkesinambungan dengan gebukan drum dari Jordan Mancino. Keharmonisan lagu ditambah ketika Josh Gilbert sang bassis menyanyikan bagian chorus.

Mau nyanyi bareng? Ada liriknya koq di bawah, tinggal puter! (bukan puter puter kepala juga kali)


Lirik Redefined As I Lay Dying

i refuse to let go of the memories
’cause they’ve changed everything inside of me

if i could go back now to save myself the loss
substanceless character brought back would be the cost
agony today
is tomorrow’s strength
so don’t run away
’cause misery is…

evolving into something that we can’t see
evolving and becoming, transforming
so don’t run away

the pain can never be erased
remain and turn it into strength, turn it into strength

what do we value in the midst of complacency?
but in despair we beg for something, anything
even our mistakes
can have the power
to light the way
like a glaring tower

the pain can never be erased
remain and turn it into strength
from our failures we are refined
replacing frailty
allowing us to be
redefined

healed scars can be stronger than skin
the wounds we have can be rewritten
redefined
redefined
redefined
agony today
is tomorrow’s strength… redefined
so don’t run away

the pain can never be erased
the pain can never be erased
remain and turn it into strength
the pain can never be erased
remain and turn it into strength
from our failures we are refined
replacing frailty
allowing us to be
redefined
replacing frailty
allowing us to be
redefined

don’t run away
misery’s evolving
