The collected poetry of As I Lay Dying

The other day I was struck by how poetic As I Lay Dying is, which is perhaps one of the reasons why I like them so much. I decided to collect all their lyrics together in one document (from the three albums that I own) and call them poems. I discovered that reading their words can sometimes be just as powerful as listening to their songs. Have a go: (PDF, 67K)

I think my favorites are "Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier", "The Pain of Separation", "The Darkest Nights", "Morning Waits", and "Within Destruction". But it's hard to pick just 5 :)

(Oh yes, happy New Year's too.)
