about

Worth Dying For Québec

Worth Dying For was born more than 10 years ago in Québec, Canada, inspired by the likes of Soilwork, In Flames and Scar Symmetry.

“Chimaera”, mixed and mastered at BadAss Studio by Jef Fortin, is a three-headed beast harboring the dark and aggressive side of the band, destabilizing progressive elements and a touch of groove that should trigger the most focused headbanging.

Track Name: Haunted
I've been so foolish and naive
To think that I'd be saved
Drinking the wine you've soiled
With your lies and false pretenses

Innocence broken
For one moment in time
Frozen in my mind
The grand blessing of the Divine
You crept so viciously
My heart was open
Your intentions were always to take what was mine

Spiraling down into oblivion
My work here isn't done
You don't deserve the grace of your God

My death's a fleeting memory
But you know I'm coming back for you

I'd give everything
So my sins could be erased
But it's not His will

Would you be afraid
If I came back to haunt you
From the depths of the grave

The secrets in here
The visions so clear
They all kept me so near

I thought I've seen your face
Down the halls, watching me pray
But yours is the one judgement that I can't escape

Spiraling out of oblivion
My work here isn't done
I am bestowed with the grace of God

Haunted
By this burning vision
Haunted
His words are like poison
Haunted
Evil's planting its seed
Haunted
In him demons will breed
Track Name: The Drawing of the Three
Doors standing in the sand
Pathways to worlds I don't know
And then we were, torn asunder
Shadows and light you and I

A thief then a beggar
A liar then a king
He's fucked up in his mind

Black aura on the cards I read
Of your future, of your disease
With great expectation I speak
Of the Drawing of the Three

Coming forward
From two places in time
Falling backwards
One body, two minds

Looking through a shattered mirror
This face that I don't know
Draws me back to the Midworld

Planets and stars, galaxies collide
Portals are opened and I see the light
And the dunes and the endless sea

Black aura on the cards I read
Of your future, of your disease
With great expectation I speak
Of the Drawing of the Three

A thief then a beggar
A liar then a king
He's fucked up in his mind
Track Name: The Killing Sound
Twisting and turning
in my bed every night that I dream
of a demonic twin
Who tells me that I'll kill people in the name of our saviour

He tells me in all honesty
Destiny's a complex machine
But I think even the angels can't withstand
My pain and the blood that's in my hands

I'm waking up to hear them mourning
Singing in unison the angels's song / The killing sound
Could be heard all the way to heaven
And straight back to hell

We won't be left behind
With a single word we surrender our lives

To remember the scorn and those words they would say
The tears overflowing I can't stop thinking
Your life's slowly fading away
With one last whisper we merge with the grey

Locked out from the world in a real-life purgatory

We won't be left behind
With a single word we surrender our lives
We won't be left behind
A barrier of sound is claiming our lives
Track Name: They Speak in Wavelenghts...
In apprehension, With all due respect
We sold our souls to the highest bidder
Vain admiration in our eyes
And all we wept were tears and ashes
Verbose offerings to gods in silver towers
Falling crashing
Their failures dictate the fate of the world

Unsung and relentless
Our hope is like a thorn in their sidev
We congregate in silence
Words are unspoken so are the lies

A world unconceived
In a universe unseen
A mind amidst the Titans
Embodied in the darkness

Sacred scriptures created to bind the masses
A cornerstone we've laid to build empires
Shadows of times past when the strongest heroes
Were afraid of the phantoms of the earth

They're hiding the stars in trails of satellites
Letting them out one by one to keep us satisfied

Deconstructing the fabric of our minds
They hide and they speak in wavelengths
Infiltrating our lives
They hide and they speak in wavelengths
Track Name: Of Glorious Remains Pt.I - The Poisoned
Coming in a new day with fright
I take place under the faint lights
The pain is real, empty I feel
As they take me away

I am begging for forgiveness
I've been asking for truthfulness
They've got something against me
Something I can not see

I feel the poison flowing
In my veins slowly burning
My spirit is quickly fading
I feel the reaper coming

I feel the poison flowing
In my veins slowly burning
My spirit is quickly fading
I feel the reaper breathing

I feel the fire, I feel the flames
I'll be reborn from my glorious remains

We are the ones who will judge
We are united within the system
We are the corrupted
We feed on the demise of the innocent

Am I really nothing ?
Am I really dying ?

Without no flaws, without no laws
We stand before their freedom
Without no flaws, without no laws
We live beyond their freedom

Am I really nothing ?
Am I really dying ?

I feel the poison flowing
In my veins slowly burning
My spirit is quickly fading
I feel the reaper coming

I feel the poison flowing
In my veins slowly burning
My spirit is quickly fading
I feel the reaper breathing
Track Name: Scorched Earth Policy
I was second-to-none
He trusted me with his life and all his secrets
I was by his side on this night when he told me
I had to burn Germany down to the ground and leave nothing for them to find
Nothing to see but dust and ashes

I am completely unable
To bear with their sufferings
I knew that we were responsible
But I just didn't want to see it

Tens of thousands on the Zeppelinfield
Chanting loud and clear
The glories of our slaughters
Bathed in a symphony of searchlights

Was all that was on our minds back in the time
Was the good or the bad way no one could say

But the record will show
There has been redemption in the darkness
The powers I've harnessed
The truth I confess
But not on my knees

Let it be known for history's sake
That I stood proud here today
That I stood proud as a man repentant for his actions

I am completely unable
To bear with their sufferings
I knew that we were responsible
But I just didn't want to see it
Track Name: Drowning in Whispers
Somewhere deep within
The prisoner's trying to regret
But he is unaware that Death overlooks with a blackened stare

Waking up, drenched in sweat
I cry (we cry) I'm reaching for air
Was this a wicked dream
Or a reflection of my reality

Cause you're a fucking disaster
And no one is searching for a way to end my nightmare
Cause you're a fucking monster
Everyone seeks to get you trapped in front of their crosshairs

There's frost in the windows I'm burning with fever
It's driving me insane
There are ghosts in the shadows watching you, brother
I'll help you get rid of this pain

Dying alone inside this lonely cage
I'm drowning in whispers
Staring at the walls of this hollow lair
I'm drowning in my fucking whispers

Imagination is endless / suicide is painless
Delusions brought me under
My finger's pulling the trigger

It won't be forever
This tearing asunder
Delusions brought me under
My finger's pulling the trigger

My world turns to black
Track Name: Virgin Black
I can hear her cries from within the pyre
Untold words pierce the conflagration

Running through the trees she knows she has brought many men under her tombstone
Her phantom runs forever so
I loved her more than you'll ever know

And burn she will as we can't keep on going like this
When opposites attract, one takes the fall to avoid the worst
Engraving one last spell under the town hall
Let's make sure this witchhunt will be one they'll remember

Running through the trees she knows she has brought many men under her tombstone
Her phantom runs forever so
I loved her more than you'll ever know

Running through the trees, she goes
She taught me a curse worthy of tombstones
Her venom runs forever so
She will hurt you more than you'll never know
Track Name: Bloodwork
The air around you is clenching my throat so tight
So blissful the revelation / poisonous is the salvation

Bonded by the weakest ties of blood
You're a threat for all those you've cared for

Accepting the memories and then they're unclean
Your death would be a bargain I'd be willing to break

Never the one to partake in the efforts we have made
To keep our heads above the foul waters of dismay

I couldn't even fucking cry when I was told you might die
The taste of blood is so sweet when I taste it off the edge of a knife

No closure in sight, this part of me has died
I've written this story without an end
Track Name: ...And We Answer in Shockwaves
With subtlety we divide the good from the bad
We've never been this close before
To unite with the stars on top of their silver towers
They had stolen salvation when it meant they kill their own

At the center of this controlled chaos
The truth lies so deep, inexorable

Dead to the world, parallel voices uniting
Epicenter of rebellions
Dead to the world, parallel voices uniting
Crossing paths with the enemy
Dead to the world parallel voices uniting with the voices of the damned

Without a cause to call our own
We lie on the fringe of desperation
Looking for clarity in all the wrong places
When they were riding the waves we created
Track Name: Chameleon
Preaching the good words to a crowd who could give less of a fuck about utopias and never-ending dreams
Basking in the glory of the lies you feed to us each and every day
Vomiting the stench of false promises seems to be a profession these days
Double standards and sellout heroes are the fuel of the crowds

We are looking for answers but no more words will come out
Channeling the very essence of our fall from grace

Yet you seem to be satisfied with the remains of their feasts
Screaming your discomfort only to bow down at their feet
Constantly changing colours is the way to go to hide from things you don't want to see

Transient and vague revolutions come and go like the change of the seasons

We are looking for answers but no more words will come out of me
Channeling the very essence of our fall from grace
Track Name: Of Glorious Remains Pt.II - Fading Lights
My mind was open wide and turned towards an infinity of men falling with the gavel
Withering like the fading lights
Oh and they flicker, they are dancing together
You trap me in this throne, my time is ticking away but i still have so much say
Please won't you listen to me

What's done is done but nothing meant / Thank you for coming, enjoy the show
You're just another one in a million and we don't mind throwing you away
We're saving face, we repair our mistakes / With your blood, we'll cover the walls
of our fortress

I'll bear the burden of all those before me who stood their ground before you
But I won't fail to show you for what you really are
Smiling liars in slipknot neckties

I'll remember clearly each of your faces laughing at me

I will come back in time
You'll see through the lies
That they've been behind every wall every single time
