We Came As Romans - To Move On Is To Grow Lyrics

I've been sleeping on stones...

My mistakes are easier made a second time.
And I can't move on since I've closed my eyes.
Since I've closed my eyes.
I've cut off myself from everybody else.

To move on is to grow,
Yet I haven't been able to accomplish either.
I know the way to go,
Yet I can't bring myself to move forward.

I've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to my spine.
My once straight back, now a crooked line.
I've broken no bones and I appear to be just fine.
My life's been emptied from the inside.

Every decision is easier made a second time.
Every decision is easier made a second time.
But once you start down one line.
The distance becomes greater to change your mind.
To change the way you're living your life.

To move on is to grow,
Yet we can barely accomplish either on our own.
We know the way to go,
Yet we follow those with their eyes closed.

I've been sleeping on stones...

We've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to our spines.
Our once straight backs now just crooked lines.
When we all wake up inside the beds in which we lie.
We will wish we had stopped the first time.

When we wake up to the lives that we've created.
We'll see we built nothing, but destroyed it.
So turn around and head back the way you came.

I'll follow you, encourage you
I'll follow you, encourage you
we'll be steadfast in our way.
And as we make it back to where our lives branched off.
We will take the path we should have taken all along.
Once you start down one line.

The distance becomes greater to change your mind.
To change the way you're living your life.

To move on is to grow.

  1. robert amaya

    It must be so nice to have these songs to the family. They can listen to them whenever and hear his voice over and over. Rip to u Kyle. And rip to my dad Steve Mark Riley died on my birthday in a motorcycle crash January 12 2019. Almost been 1 year since I lost u

  2. Roz Hugo

    Miss you Kyle 😞

  3. Irina Gesse

    Rest in peace our clean voice angel. I miss you everyday, I love you forever Kyle.



  5. Clifford Bunton

    2019 is almost gone and Kyle's voice still carries me forward. God I miss you so much...

  6. Jay Witting

    I miss the days when it didn’t hurt to listen to bands like Linkin park and this :/

    Clifford Bunton

    It does hurt, but for me it's the only way to release the pain and the tears. I'll play To Plant A Seed or anything similar, pack like 3 bowls of 🔥🔥🔥🔥 green, smoke and just let the tears fall. It makes me grateful that I didn't kill myself in 2015 even though I wanted to almost every day. I was mentally and emotionally abused by my mother as a kid which led to me being homeless and in my early 30s, had basically given up on life. Sought out therapy because I knew something was wrong mentally but didn't know how to explain it, and eventually moved out of the hell hole I grew up in to a quieter town 20 minutes away. 4 years later and I still have issues but therapy has taught me to understand what my triggers are and how to better deal with them. Bands like WCAR have literally saved my life. I play their music almost daily on repeat for hours...

  7. Ryan Armitage

    One of the first ever metalcore bands I got into, thank so much Kyle rest easy my friend.

    Thus goes to show that even the record labels can't get the lyrics right. (Description) nevertheless, RIP Kyle and kudos to WCAR for keeping his legacy strong.
