Song Video of the Day – Through Struggle By As I Lay Dying Music Video (From Shadows Are Security Album)

29 May

Through Struggle Screenshots As I Lay Dying

From the head windmill to the hole in the….. door ;) This video rocks!

One of my favorite metal videos of all time is, without a doubt, Through Struggle by As I Lay Dying.

There is just such a raw power in the music, and yet the pacing of the video is perfect and perfectly fits to the tune of the vocals and the sound of the music. Not only that, but this music video tells a story… and while it is lost on you at first, by the end you’ll understand what was going on.

The story of the video also fits in perfectly with the lyrics from Through Struggle…. as you can read below. Through Struggle was the 8th track on As I Lay Dying’s third major-label full-length album, called “Shadows Are Security” (I love that album!) on Metal Blade Records.

Enjoy. :)

Keep in mind, if you’ve never heard Tim Lambesis’ vocals before from As I Lay Dying, you may have a really hard time keeping up with the lyrics and understanding what he is saying. Watch the video first, then go back to the lyrics. Tim does not clearly speak some of the words, and he says them in a quick fashion at points. So the word “assembled” is barely spoken and sounds like “smbo thoughts”, that’s because he is saying it very fast and not speaking the whole word, which is common in songs and bands, and a lot of times songs and bands will leave out introductory words like “It” or “The” in a line or barely utter the word; making it virtually impossible to hear. I think the lyrics in this song are fantastic though. In my typical style, I have tried to accentuate certain words and to write it out to match the vocals of the actual song as you are listening to it.

Through Struggle As I Lay Dying Lyrics:

Only through struggle
Have I found rest
With a piece of me … TAKEN
AWAY!
I BEGIN
To UNDERSTAND!
HOLLOW… OUT
This machine like CHEST

With its gears….
That turn to make me feel
And assembled thoughts
That fade away

Only through struggle
Have I found rest

Only through struggle
Have I found rest

Remove from me!
This DE-ception
That I call love
That I call love

With its gears….
That turn to make me feel
And assembled thoughts
That fade away

Remove from me!
This DE-ception
That I call love
That I call love

Only through struggle
Have I found rest
With a piece of me … TAKEN
AWAY!
I BEGIN
To UNDERSTAND!

I BEGIN
To UNDERSTAND!

I BEGIN TO UNDER——
STAAAAAND!
