About Laid to Rest

"Laid to Rest" is a song by the groove metal band Lamb Of God from their fourth album, Ashes of the Wake. It was the first single from the album, and a music video was made for it. The song is meant to be a first-person narrative of a murder victim, haunting his killer from beyond the grave. On the other side, the lyrics may also have a connection to the Iraq War, like most of the songs from Ashes of the Wake. This song has been covered live by hip hop group Gym Class Heroes during the 2008 Vans Warped Tour.

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 f*ck
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 f*ck
Absorb yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself

See who gives a f*ck
See who gives a f*ck
See who gives a f*ck

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
