As I Lay Dying – Beyond Our Suffering lyrics

Bound to learn the hard way
This is the human condition
There is nothing that can be said
To stop us from making mistakes
When I look to myself as a source of ending pain
No matter how many times before I've failed

It seems our problems solve themselves
When we look beyond us to those truly in hell

The more I focus on myself
Then the more helpless that I become
So why not erase this point of view?
My suffering is trivial
Compared to those who know real agony

It seems our problems solve themselves
When we look beyond us to those truly in hell
It seems our problems solve themselves
When we look beyond our suffering

My trials seem insignificant now

Why won't we look beyond us?
Why won't we look beyond our despair?
It seems our problems solve themselves
When we look to those truly in hell

Personal redemption cannot change the world
Unless we lay down our lives for those who still suffer

    The biggest problem in humanity is selfishness, even among Christians. If we (he's talking to Christians) look beyond ourselves to those who are going to hell, a change of attitude, our selfish problems will be solved. And how can I be unselfish and love unbelievers? By focusing on Christ and following Him.
    Our own salvation (personal redemption) can't change the world unless we share it and His love with others.
