Avenged Sevenfold Lyrics

November 27, 2010

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Dust begins to fall, to the ground
The air is cold and thin
Thoughts are haunting me as I look around
This will never end and I’ll bleed forever

Don’t acknowledge right, just dwell on wrong
This spot in hell’s where I belong
I’ve come so far – it’s been so long
Don’t know why it started or where it came from

Outside shell is strong – confident
But slowly eats away
Like a man plagued with disease, I try to fight
Through my pores it seems to seep…
I’ll bleed forever

And you sit there and do nothing
You’re content with doing nothing
There’s nowhere to run and hide
when you’re living to die

Stuck alone inside your head,
better off dead
The phone would ring in the empty house,
no one’s around.

But in my life, I wanted more, I needed more
I taste more

Brompton Cocktail

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

(Out of time…)
Doc, I’m dying, I’m feeling compromised (feeling compromised)
and so dehumanized (and so dehumanized)
I lost my final fight to disease, I feel that this is where it ends
I need that shot to enter my vein
My Brompton Cocktail blend

‘Cause I can’t feel my face
I won’t struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I’m not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
in a lie…

I’m tired, induced euphoria (induced euphoria)
to help me move along (help me move along)
I wanna meet my maker in peace, I want to feel alive again
So put that smile back on my face and mix it strong my friend

‘Cause I can’t feel my face
I won’t struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I’m not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
And I take my life tonight ’cause I have the right to die how I wanna
and leave how I arrived, so alive

I believe my sins they’ll be forgiven
and I believe my choice will save me from this life
please don’t question why
my sins they’ll be forgotten
I believe I’ll find peace in afterlife
please don’t question why
I left this way

‘Cause I can’t feel my face
I won’t struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I’m not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
And I take my life tonight ’cause I have the right to die how I wanna
and leave how I arrived, so alive

Crossroads

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

I’ve been traveling for so long
So lost till I stumbled upon
Two roads in front of me
I had to take my time

To the right I could see a church
I took a step in that direction first
But to the left there was a watering hole
Where they were whiskey drunk
Now that’s where I wanna be
I fly to the edges of it all

If I was perfect
Then this would be easy
Either roads plausible
On both I could drown
I walk through center
With no rules to guide me
I realize it’s difficult
But now I can see

There’s gotta be another way to go
A way that’s much more feasible
A combination of all these lies,
A central path without choosing a side

I make decisions one at a time
And no I never say I’m always right
I’m confident that when I stand on my own
You’ll see the truest form of a man
when I’m shining through
I fly to the edges of it all

If I was perfect
Then this would be easy
Either roads plausible
On both I could drown
I walk through center
With no rules to guide me
I realize it’s difficult
But now I can see

Oh, I hear them now
All the religious rhymes
(Anger I see)
(Anger I see)
(Anger I see now)

The left isn’t better
It’s just more of the same
Condemning all these people
For what they believe

I climb to the top
of their mountain again
No one is gonna see me this way
And the closer to the top I get
The more they can gain
But I’m not you

I may not be perfect
But I’ve always been true
I may not be worthy
In your eyes
Climbed up from the bottom
For the last time
The last one the last one
The last time

If I was perfect
Then this would be easy
Either roads plausible
On both I could drown
I walk through center
With no rules to guide me
I realize it’s difficult
But now I can see

Beast and The Harlot

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

This shining city built of gold, a far cry from innocence,
There’s more than meets the eye round here, look to the waters of the deep.
A city of evil.
There sat a seven-headed beast, ten horns raised from his head.
Symbolic woman sits on his throne, but hatred strips her and leaves her naked.
The Beast and the Harlot.

She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, myrrh with pearls.
Her plagues have come all at once as her mourners watch her burn.
Destroyed in an hour.
Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too.
Will weep and mourn this loss with her sins piled to the sky,
The Beast and the Harlot.

She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

The day has come for all us sinners.
If you’re not a servant, you’ll be struck to the ground.
Flee the burning, greedy city.
Lookin’ back on her to see there’s nothing around.

I don’t believe in fairytales and no one wants to go to hell.
You’ve made the wrong decision and it’s easy to see.
Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us,
You’re welcome to the city where your future is set forever.

She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, eery filthy bird
and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

Weekends on young and angry streets
We meet, drink ’till trouble found us there
Living life as without a care
We’ve had our fights, been black and blue
Its true, I’ve even gone to jail for you my friends
Bet your life that I’d do it again

(Until the End)

Don’t change the way you think of me
We’re from the same story
Life moves on, can’t stay the same
But some of us, I’m worried, yeah

While some have gone their separate ways
There’s some still caught up with the past
and stead to move on, you’re missing most of your life
They say its hard to stay the same
When some fail, while other men seem to gain, but friends
I’ll be with you here until the end

(Until the End)

Don’t change the way you think of me
We’re from the same story
Life moves on, can’t stay the same
But some of us, I’m worry

We’re all falling forward
With no signs of slow
Some moving faster
Thats all that I wanted
I wanted

I know its hard
Its passing by
Memories
Be out all night
so reminisce won’t bring you back
Just look ahead and hold on tight

We’re all falling forward
With no signs of slow
And some moving faster
Thats all that I wanted
I wanted

Don’t change the way you think of me
Oh yeah

Until the end
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end

LET’S GO!
(We all know, we all know!)

Sorry, did I wake your dreams?
Some questions run to me
We only, only wake up when we sleep
Met by the lunar light, trouble’s all we find
Lost our way tonight

Is it something we said?
Is it something we said to them?
Is it something we said?!

(Save me)
Entrapped into my own world
(Save me)
Where the endings are the same as every other
We’re only here to die
(Save me)
I’m losing my only dream
(Save me)
I can use some God in life, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know

(We all know, we all know!)

Ever since the day you let my face being said unknown
How many years to walk this path alone
So much to see tonight, so why’d you close your eyes?
Why can’t I shut mine?

Is it something we did?
Is it something we did to them?
Is it something we did?!

(Save me)
Entrapped into my own world
(Save me)
Where the endings are the same as every other
We’re only here to die
(Save me)
I’m losing my only dream
(Save me)
I can use some God in life, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know
If you hear me, let me know

Help me find my way
So, help me find my way

No pulse inside of me, stone cold lips and have seen
All lies into a degree, losing you I wanna be
Find out, what now?
He may be out of his mind
But someday you will find, that sanity has left us all blind
And dragged us all behind, a moment seen with those eyes
Crystal blue skies, they say that all beauty must die
I say it just moves on

If you only open your mind, then someday you will find
That sanity left us behind, and walk right through the dark
I can see the picture’s clear, it’s yesterday, pictures of my own
I can hear the voices begging you to stay, but know you’re not alone.

(Save me)
Entrapped into my own world
(Save me)
Where the endings are the same as every other
We’re only here to die
(Save me)
I’m losing my only dream
(Save me)
I can use some God in life, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know
If you hear me, let me know

Tonight we all die young. [6x]
Tonight we all die
Tonight we all die young!

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

As a young boy chasing dragons with your wooden sword so mighty,
You’re St. George or you’re David and you always killed the beast.
Times change very quickly,
and you had to grow up early,
A house in smoking ruins and the bodies at your feet.

CHORUS

You’ll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner, forgotten by no one.
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man, and his honor.

The smell of resined leather
The steely iron mask
As you cut and thrust and parried at the fencing master’s call.
He taught you all he ever knew
To fear no mortal man
and now you’ll wreak your vengeance in the
Screams of evil men.

Yeah, you’ve been alone
I’ve been gone for far too long
But with all that we’ve been through
After all this time I’m coming home to you

Never let it show
The pain I’ve grown to know
‘Cause with all these things we do
It don’t matter when I’m coming home to you

I reach towards the sky I’ve said my goodbyes
My heart’s always with you now
I won’t question why so many have died
My prayers have made it through yeah
‘Cause with all these things we do
It don’t matter when I’m coming home to you

Letters keep me warm
Helped me through the storm
But with all that we’ve been through
After all this time I’m coming home to you

I reach towards the sky I’ve said my goodbyes
My heart’s always with you now
I won’t question why so many have died
My prayers have made it through yeah
‘Cause with all these things we do
It don’t matter when I’m coming home to you

I’ve always been true
I’ve waited so long just to come hold you
I’m making it through
It’s been far too long, we’ve proven our
love over time’s so strong, in all that we do
The stars in the night, they lend me their light
to bring me closer to heaven with you

(Bring me closer)

But with all that we’ve been through
After all this time I’m coming home to you

I reach towards the sky I’ve said my goodbyes
My heart’s always with you now
I won’t question why so many have died
My prayers have made it through yeah
‘Cause with all these things we do
It don’t matter when I’m coming home to you

And with all that we’ve been through
After all this time I’m coming home to you

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, on tonight.

Ooooo….
Stand up and fight.

Now fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong.
I’ll walk your land but don’t belong, two million soldiers can’t be wrong.

It’s no fun but I’ve been here before.
I’m far from home and I’m fighting your war.
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother in front of her son.
(Change this from my consciousness and please erase my dreams)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to god that our side is right.
You know we won but still we lose, until I make it home to you.
I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go.
Memories wont let you cry unless I don’t return tonight.

So many soldiers on the other side, I take their live so they don’t take mine.
(Scared to make it out alive now murders all I know.)
Nobody tells me all the reasons were here, I am a weapon so there’s nothing to fear.
(Another day another life but nothing real to show for.)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to god that our side is right.
You know we won but still we lose, until I make it home to you.
I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go.
Memories won’t let you cry unless I don’t return tonight.

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight.

Watching the death toll rise wondering how im alive.
Strangers blood on my hands, showed all I can.
There were no sunny nights watching your brothers all die
To destroy all their plans with no thought of me. (No thought of me)
No thought of me.

Ohhhhh…..

We’ll walk the city lonely, memories that are not passing by.
A murderer walks your streets tonight.
Forgive me for my crimes.
Don’t forget that I was so young, but so scared.
In the name of God and Country.Top of Form

Radiant Eclipse

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Two nights ago I was shot
A bullet sunk straight through my skull
A friend pulled the trigger that silenced me
No pain as I awoke, but dead
Seeing the face of the man
The time as he lays down his gun
I knew this was going to take place
White silence, so peaceful, so numb

No one knows the time they’re changing
No one will see through:

You’re all gone to me, (gone to me)
I’ve been pulled out to watch from my eternal sleep
Intuition and a warning to believe (I will believe)
Something was wrong and though I felt I had to stay
Moving on seemed to be somber bliss
Without one goodbye
I watch my Mother shed tears
(and taste the blood she cries
and taste the blood she cries)

No:This gun has stopped time in its tracks
Has altered the course of my fate
Destiny is shattered and timeless
Closed eyes feel the cold winds embrace

I’ll watch you call, calling for me,
you can’t bring back time…
Close your eyes or look away,
fate exposed and won’t let me stay
Hope will fall tonight with broken wings,
descending entity in me

My voice has been taken from me.
The more I listen, the more I have to say

Unholy Confessions

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

“I’ll try,” she said as he walked away.
“Try not to lose you.”
Two vibrant hearts could change.
Nothing tears the being more than deception,
unmasked fear.
“I’ll be here waiting” tested and secure.

Nothing hurts my world,
just affects the ones around me
When sin’s deep in my blood,
you’ll be the one to fall.

“I wish I could be the one,
the one who won’t care at all
But being the one on the stand,
I know the way to go, no one’s guiding me.
When time soaked with blood turns its back,
I know it’s hard to fall.
Confined in me was your heart
I know it’s hurting you, but it’s killing me.”

Nothing will last in this life,
our time is spent constructing,
now you’re perfecting a world… meant to sin.
Constrict your hands around me,
squeeze till I cannot breathe,
this air tastes dead inside me,
contribute to our plague.
Break all your promises,
tear down this steadfast wall,
restraints are useless here,
tasting salvation’s near.

Victim

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

House full of roses, a letter on the stairs
A table of messages for anyone who cares
Collage of broken worlds and stories full of tears
Remembering your life cause we wish that you were here

Nothing is harder than to wake up all alone
Realize that it’s not okay, it’s the end of all you know
Time keeps passing by, but it seems I’m frozen still
Scars are left behind, but some too deep to feel

And some say that this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’re all just victims of a crime
When all is gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
We’re all just victims of a crime

Somedays you’ll find me in a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself about the things I’ll never know
What’s left to find cause I need a little more
I need a little time, can we even up the score?

And some say that this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’re all just victims of a crime
When all is gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
We’re all just victims of a crime, yeah

Well nothing lasts forever, for all good things it’s true
I’d rather trade it all while somehow saving you
It must have been the season that threw us out of line
Once I stood so tall, now I’m searching for a sign
So don’t need your salvation with promises of time
And all the speculation, save it for another time
Cause we all need a reason, a reason just to stay
While some just can’t be bothered to stick around another day

Well some say that this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’re all just victims of a crime
When all is gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
We’ve all been victims of a crime
Victims of a crime
Living with this crime

I’m missing you
I’m missing you
I’m missing you
I’m missing you

So Far Away

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Never feared for anything
Never shamed but never free
A life that healed a broken heart with all that it could

Lived a life so endlessly
Saw beyond what others see
I tried to heal your broken heart with all that I could

Will you stay ?
Will you stay away forever ?

How do I live without the ones I love ?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you’re so far away

Plans of what our futures hold
Foolish lies of growing old
It seems we’re so invincible
The truth is so cold

A final song, a last request
A perfect chapter laid to rest
Now and then I try to find a place in my mind

Where you can stay
You can stay awake forever

How do I live without the ones I love ?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you’re so far away

Sleep tight, I’m not afraid
The ones that we love are here with me
Lay away a place for me
Cause as soon as I’m done I’ll be on my way
To live eternally

How do I live without the ones I love ?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
And the light you left remains but it’s so hard to stay
When I have so much to say and you’re so far away

I love you
You were ready
The pain is strong enough despite
But I’ll see you
When He lets me
Your pain is gone, your hands are tied

So far away
And I need you to know
So far away
And I need you to
Need you to know

Dear God

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
Can’t help but wish that I was there
Back where I’d love to be, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing yo yeah
I ask of you is
to hold her when I’m not around
when I’m much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
‘Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

There’s nothing here for me on this barren road
There’s no one here while the city sleeps
and all the shops are closed
Can’t help but think of the times I’ve had with you
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
to hold her when I’m not around
when I’m much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
‘Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

Some search, never finding a way
Before long, they waste away
I found you, something told me to stay
I gave in, to selfish ways
And how I miss someone to hold
when hope begins to fade…

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
to hold her when I’m not around
when I’m much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
‘Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

Betrayed

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go throw it all away?
In my dreams it’s me and you, it’s there I saw it all come true
As time went by faith in you grew, so one thing’s left for me to do (finish you)

I feel it burn inside, burn in me like the rising sun
Lifted into the sky, took the only thing I loved
I know after tonight all your power crumbles in my arms
So don’t worry, I’ll be fine, when my life ends, I’ll leave this scar

A smoking gun in your hand, now don’t you realize what you’ve done
Put a bullet in his back, your hero since you were so young
How could you kill the man who brought salvation through your pain
He must mean everything to end it all this shameful way

I started here so young and helped you get along
Just did it for the love, and people healed through us
Don’t live you life in vain, don’t take it out on me
You’re cracked, so just remember, I’m not your enemy
I don’t deserve to fall this way, by a man who felt betrayed

I felt so down now you’re around to rescue me
Every note and every word i’m listening
Sometimes problems seem too deep to take
Sometimes I cry thinking my future looks so bleak
Finally, together we were destined, I know what’s best for us in the end
Someone hear me, someone stop me, someone listen, why aren’t you listening?

Welcome To The Family

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Hey kid! (hey kid)
Do I have your attention?
I know the way you’ve been living
Life’s so reckless, tragedy endless
Welcome to the family

Hey!
There’s something missing
Only time will alter your vision
Never in question, lethal injection
Welcome to the family

Not long ago you found the answers were so crystal clear
Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear
Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself?
You can’t win this fight

And in a way it seems there’s no one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And our feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
But you can’t win this fight!

Hey kid! (hey kid)
I have to question
What’s with the violent aggression
Details blurry, lost him too early
Welcome to the family

Hey!
Why won’t you listen?
Can’t help the people you’re missing
It’s been done, a casualty rerun
Welcome to the family

I try and help you with the things that can’t be justified
I need to warn you that there is no way to rationalize
So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?
You can’t win this fight

And in a way it seems there’s no one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And our feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
But you can’t win this fight!

Gunning for you and all mankind,
I’ve lost my mind
Psychotic rabid dementia
I won’t be fine

I see you’re a king who’s been dethroned
Cast out in a world you’ll never know
Stand down, place your weapon by your side
It’s a war, in the end we’ll surely lose but that’s alright
So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?

And in a way it seems there’s no one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
Our feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
But you can’t win this fight

Deep inside where nothing’s fine
I’ve lost my mind
You’re not invited, so step aside
I’ve lost my,
Deep inside where nothing’s fine
I’ve lost my mind
You’re not invited, so step aside
I’ve lost my…

Burn It Down

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Jealousy’s an ugly word, but you don’t seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I’m here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Don’t need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood, I’ll burn you down (you can’t help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall, I’ll fight ’til the end (I won’t help you)
I can’t trust anyone, see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, it’s sorrow that feeds your lies

You’re on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breath
A crutch for you that won’t always be there
Hide in the dark another day, the fear in you is here to stay
So keep the fuck away from me and learn to trust the words I say

Hatred fuels my blood, I’ll burn you down (you can’t help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall, I’ll fight ’til the end (I won’t help you)
I can’t trust anyone, witness and see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, put faith in you for the last time
It’s sorrow that feeds your lies

Run from me before I tear you down (be afraid)
You chose the wrong side (it feels so right)
I won’t help you, let you rot away
Run towards the light exposing your soul (we won’t be there by your side)
Salvation’s dying (somebody’s crying)
We’re all gone in the end, sweet child we’ll miss you
No, so far away

Falling away, can’t turn back time
Burn it down anyway

Warmness On The Soul

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Your hazel green tint eyes watching every move I make. And that feeling of doubt, it’s erased.
I’ll never feel alone again with you by my side.
You’re the one, and in you I confide.

[chorus]

And we have gone through good and bad times. But your unconditional love was always on my mind. You’ve been there from the start for me.

And your loves always been true as can be.
I give my heart to you. I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you.

[Repeat chorus]

{Piano Solo}

I give my heart to you. I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you.

Desecrate Through Reverance

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Hard news, taken harder, don’t look to me
Disappointed, we don’t agree, I don’t need your praise…
(don’t look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)

Never asked you to like me,
I don’t want your praise (we won’t play your games)
Look down on me, spit in my face,
you’re nothing to me:not to me

Darkened eyes you’ll see,
there is no hope, no savior in me
(don’t look this way, don’t breathe this way,
don’t stare this way, anymore)

Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
what happens to me

(don’t look this way, don’t breathe this way,
don’t stare this way, anymore)

My presence won’t be ignored, no not today
Don’t walk in my direction, turn the other way
(don’t look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)

Asking questions, predetermined answers,
you won’t find them here (we don’t want your opinion)
And I don’t want you, I won’t let you think,
compromise is near. ‘Cause it’s not near.

I’m alone in here
No more feelings
Killed my fears
Don’t ask

you’ll never know
you’re left behind and I’ll be exposed

Far away, you keep on trying…
Holding me down, breaking away,
trying to distance my life.
Not one in the crowd, but one with the answer

the one that could change your mind

But it’s not true, I don’t know you
Don’t waste your time, and don’t waste mine
I’m not your friend, I won’t soothe your soul

And in the end you’re all dead to me….

Almost Easy

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

I feel insane every single time
I’m asked to compromise
Cause I’m afraid and stuck in my ways
And that’s the way it stays
So how long did I expect love to outweigh ignorance?
By that look on your face I may have forced the scale to tip

I’m not insane, I’m not insane
I’m not insane, I’m not – not insane

(Mother)
Come back to me, it’s almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it’s almost easy

Shame pulses through my heart
From the things I’ve done to you
It’s hard to face, but the fact remains
That this is nothing new

I left you bound and tied with suicidal memories
Selfish beneath the skin
But deep inside I’m not insane.

I’m not insane, I’m not insane.
I’m not insane, I’m not – not insane.

(Mother)
Come back to me, it’s almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it’s almost easy
(You’ll learn your lesson)
Come back to me, it’s almost easy
(But first you fall)
Come back again, it’s almost easy

Now that I’ve lost you it kills me to say
(Hurts to say)
I’ve tried to hold on as you’ve slowly slipped away.
I’m losing the fight.
I’ve treated you so wrong, now let me make it right.
(Make it all right)

I’m not insane, I’m not insane. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
I’m not insane, I’m not – not insane.

(Mother)
Come back to me, it’s almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it’s almost easy
(You’ll learn your lesson)
Come back to me, it’s almost easy
(But still you fall)
Come back again, it’s almost easy

I Won’t See You Tonight Part 2

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Come back to me, this is unconceivable
Breaking apart the ones you love
Hate runs deep for what you’ve done to us
Left alone through suicide…suicide

I just want to die, take away my life
lay by your side, please:.

Look at my face you pierce with a blank stare
No dream could prepare a heart for a lifeless friend.
He’s gone. Nothing will take back time.
I need him back, but nothing will take back time.
(take back time)

I can see just fine, you in my life,
there by my side as it starts to fade
I know this can’t be right, stuck in a dream
a nightmare full of sorrow
Nightmare – full of pain

I look back and see the twisted road
Best friends and despair took its toll
Take away

You can’t be replaced
I’m left alone with you
in spirit and the words
you wrote to me

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
all the ones around me, I cared for
and most of all I loved
but I can’t see myself that way
please don’t forget me
or cry while I’m away

I Won’t See You Tonight – Part 1

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold 
No more nights, no more pain
I’ve gone alone, took all my strength
I’ve made the change,
I won’t see you tonight

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
all the ones around me,
I cared for and loved

It all built up, inside of me
A place so dark, so cold, I had to set me free
Don’t mourn for me, you’re not the one to place the blame
As bottles called my name, I won’t see you tonight

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
all the ones around me,
I cared for and (loved) most of all I loved
but I can’t see myself that way
please don’t forget me or cry while I’m away

Cry alone, I’ve gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I’ve gone alone, took all my strength
But I’ve made the change,
I won’t see you tonight

(So far away, I’m gone. Please don’t follow me tonight.
And while I’m gone, everything will be alright).

No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight 2x

Lost

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Centuries passed and still the same
War in our blood, some things never change
Fighting for land and personal gain
better your life, justify our pain
The end is knocking
The end is knocking

We’ve all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain’t right
(most of us just ain’t right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

How many lives will we take
How many hearts destined to break
Nowhere to run, can’t escape
Full of ourselves, tied to our fate
The end is knocking
The end is knocking, yeah

We’ve all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain’t right
(most of us just ain’t right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

With peace of mind so hard to find
We’re dwelling on the drastic signs
Another way to numb our mind
And as you close your eyes tonight
and pray for a better life
you’ll see it flying helplessly away

We’ve all been lost for most of this life
(lost for most of this life)
Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
And I know that most of us just ain’t right
(most of us just ain’t right)
Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

Warmness on the Soul [Single Version]

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Your hazel green tint eyes watching every move I make.
And that feeling of doubt, it’s erased.
I’ll never feel alone again with you by my side.
You’re the one, and in you I confide.

[chorus]
And we have gone through good and bad times.
But your unconditional love was always on my mind.
You’ve been there from the start for me.
And your loves always been true as can be.
I give my heart to you.
I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you.

[Repeat chorus]

{Piano Solo}

I give my heart to you.
I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you. 

Bat Country

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold 
He who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man
Caught here in a fiery blaze, won’t lose my will to stay.
I trie-ie-ied to drive all through the night,
the heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to me.

[Chorus:]
Can’t you help me as I’m startin’ to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I’m starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don’t want the attention.

As Ie-ie-ie adjust to my new sights the rarely tired lights will take me to new heights.
My hand is on the trigger I’m ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it but everything’s all right.
Mental fiction follows me; show me what it’s like to be set free.

[Chorus]

So sorry you’re not here I’ve been sane too long my vision’s so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don’t be surprised when things aren’t what they seem.

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won’t lose my will to stay.
These eyes won’t see the same, after I flip today.

Sometimes I don’t know why we’d rather live than die,
we look up towards the sky for answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by,
don’t want your absolution cause I can’t make it right.
I’ll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man.

Trashed and Scattered

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Keep on writing you’re just raping yourself (nothing can take my mind away from them)
Don’t you ask about me, ask ’bout somebody else (Once I’ve fallen there’s many stories to tell)
I can feel it, won’t embrace it, it’s overwhelming how far ya take it (Stuck in a state of questioning)
And don’t you tell me you know we’ re destined, you won’t convince me, I won’t listen (Resentment building, you’ve put
our lives on hold)

Trashed and scattered again, I’m feelin’ so low
You waste your breath while fuckin’ with me, my blood is so cold
My destination always unknown, I’ll find my way there
but Goddamn Motherfuckers always wasting my time

I won’t be the victim, but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll
And don’t you try to stop me, it’s a place you’ll never know
Don’t try to judge or take shots at me, I’ll never let you seize control

Play your game you better walk away cause your integrity don’t mean shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite, and I’m gonna take you out

Label me, that’s fine, I’ll be somebody else (Nothing in front of me but holes ahead)
Lie about my life, have a story to tell (Lights went down, was on the edge and I fell)
Oh you’re so insightful, let me remind you to twist and break me, should make you worried (Long way to go and you’re
right there)
Two-faced liar, don’t try and know me, deceit brings fire, makes sure you can’t breathe (Pick at pieces of my body below)

I never bothered with all the rumors, too much garbage (all the same)
(I know my destination)
I’ll stand right here, come on you falsehood deceitful liar (There’s no shame)
Don’t ever take my side, I know you’re never right, I’ll justify the means (Nothing’s what it seems)
I’ll stand around and fight, but there’s no point tonight, been chained to this machine

Trashed and scattered again, I’m feelin’ so low
You waste your breath while fuckin’ with me, my blood is so cold
My destination alway sunknown, I’ll find my way there
but Goddamn Impostor are you out of your mind?

I walk down these roads alone and now you’re seen here
My feelings that I’m having towards you are perfectly clear (I control this ride)
My devils appetite is tonight and now I’m alright
But you Goddamn Motherfuckers always wasting my time

Play your game you better walk away cause your integrity don’t mean shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite, and I’m gonna take you out

I won’t be the victim, but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll
And don’t you try to stop me, it’s a place you’ll never know
Don’t try to judge or take shots at me, I’ll never let you seize control

Don’ try and get the best of me (No one can help but your own self)
City makes my body ache (Lonely, don’t try and prey on me)
I feel your world dying, no more use in tryin’
And my body’s trashed and low, but to you I’ll never show myself or what’s inside
And I’ve seen it all before but I’ll settle the score, I’ll never join your side

Critical Acclaim

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Shhh… quiet you might piss somebody off
Like me motherfucker you’ve been at it for too long
While you feed off others’ insecurities
You stand in front of me and bite the hand that feeds

Self-righteousness is wearing thin
(Lies inside your head, your best friend)
I’ll bleed but not for fellow men
(Broken glass, your fake reflection)

Telling them it’s all for something real
Don’t respect the words you’re speaking
Gone too far
Acclaim

So how does it feel to know that someone’s kid
in the heart of America has blood on their hands
fighting to defend your rights
so you can maintain a lifestyle
that insults his family’s existence
Well, where I come from we have a special
salute waved high in the air
to all those pompous assholes
who spend their days pointing fingers
(Fuck You)

Shhh… quiet you might piss somebody off
Like the heartbeat of this country when antagonized too long
I’ll be damned if you count me in as part of your generous hypocrisy
collected and amazed

Tabloid gossip we want less real
(There’s no need for us to bury you)
Selfish agenda once again
(Right this way you’ve dug your own grave)

Telling them it’s all for something real
Don’t respect the words you’re speaking
Gone too far
Acclaim

All the way from the east to the west we’ve
got this high society
looking down on their very foundation
constantly reminding us that our actions
are the cause of all their problems
Pointing their fingers in every
direction and blaming their
own nation for who wins elections
They’ve never contributed a fucking thing to the
country they love to criticize

Excuse the obscene, ignore the untrue
Depictions we see try and get through
Admitting mistakes can hurt
I’m not the last but I sure ain’t the first

Shhh… quiet you might piss somebody off

Self-righteousness is wearing thin
(Lies inside your head your best friend)
Heart bleeds but not for fellow men
(Broken glass your fake reflection)

Telling them it’s all for something real
Don’t respect the words you’re speaking
Gone too far
Acclaim

Demons

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

I’ve been thinking lots about my life and
How quick I’d wash it down the drain
Past tense the future, nothing matters now
I act on my own and I’m to blame
Living’s a wicked dream, where things turn out all wrong
We’re all so weak, no matter how strong, yeah

I tried running away from me
Convince me that I’ve grown, but I can’t
Change so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for insanity, all a part of me

I don’t like that you’re calling me a liar
I don’t like that you found out I’m a snake
Been sneaking around for far too long now
I don’t like how fast my intentions fade
Karma has beat me down, the worst is yet to come
Many mistakes and still I’m so young, yeah

I tried running away from me
Convince me that I’ve grown, but I can’t
Change so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for insanity, all a part of me

I can’t
Count how many times
Awakened in fear, nightly
Palms sweating
Dreams
Of promises I’ve made
To no one but myself
Have been
Crushed daily

Don’t lend me your hand
I can’t trust myself
So how can you trust me

We’ve all made selfish bad decisions
We’ve all tried dishing out the blame
Convinced ourselves of our own actions
My problem is I’ll never change
Been dealt some good cards that
I’ll fold before it’s time
Can’t promise you that it’s my last time, yeah

I tried running away from me
Convince me that I’ve grown, but I can’t
Change so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for insanity, all a part of me

Friends won’t help you now
Hope lost gone too far
(oh oh oh oh)

Friends won’t help you now
Hope lost gone too far
(oh oh oh oh)

I’m scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity
I’m scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity
I’m scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity
I’m scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity

Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity

Demons they follow me, ’cause my insanity

Chapter Four (Real)

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

“(Give me your hand,
Blood is spilt and man will follow
Infernal man, punishment too great to bear)
Conceived and born was one of light
Rain and dark, the other born black night

Raise your head and taste the courage
(the one of light)
Fall from grace, unholy night
I’ve come here to kill you,
Won’t leave until you’ve died
Murder born of vengeance,
I closed my brothers eyes tonight…

Its cold tonight as the clouds turn grey
And from my hands to my brothers grave
You took his side, you took his gift,
Feel the power of a fallen man, crestfallen man…

Far away in this land I must go,
Out of the site of the One.
A punishment sent from his hand
A hardship no one should know
Now go out of the site of the One,
Away in this land you must go.

Where has he gone? What have you done?
A voice commands from high above this earth.
From the soil I hear his blood cry out to me
Murder, liar, vengeance, deceit.”

Blinded In Chains

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

And we’re at it again, I turn around another fucking war, man
I don’t know where to begin, but I’ll start with the radical leaders
Their steps we’re followin’

Running, don’t go back and fight, too many you’ll lose
(And as clowns you follow suit behind the blood between the red and white and blue but it’s too deep for you to see and
everyone eventually will take the step cause it’s in sight you take the left I’ll take the right I fell the hate you’ve built
for me and I say pay attention baby)

As they thank the Lord the blind can’t see
Like a plague fed to the brain, deadly disease

But it wasn’t a sin, a sorry life in judging every action
And as they’re feeding your mind with this shit you forgot
How to speak how to ask all the questions

The business at hand tonight, make the people choose
(I see another side in you but there’s not much more I can do from on the outside looking in your government is listenin’ to
push you on the story of immortal father mortal son give them your mind and all your wealth the cycle will rebirth itself)
If they had it their way I’d burn in Hell and your future’s a fuckin’ disaster can’t you see
Don’t give them all the power when your future’s in desperate trouble baby

As they thank the Lord the blind can’t see
Like a plague fed to the brain, deadly disease
I’d run away tonight with my mind still intact you gotta make it alright
Easier said than done with no place to hide and having no place to (run)
Running away from condition, I see you but you’re running away from
Your scared seductive system

Most would claim I live a lie when pointing out it’s easy to predict these things
Every color has its side, they live together vote and most won’t read between these lines
Please help us, please save us of coarse they have control we’re all the same
Up on the cross, crucified their problem drove the nail and let Him rot
Family and friends, it won’t matter in the end I’m sure they’ll understand Now look at the world and see how the humans bleed
As I sit up here and wonder “bout how you sold your mind, body and soul
Looking at the fields so green I know this sounds obscene
I see you’re living for tomorrow but decisions you have made will leave you empty

You’ve fallen asleep in denial
Look at the way we’re dyin’
How it ends I’ll never know
Just live your life blind like me

Dancing Dead

oleh: Avenged Sevenfold

Dead men,
They celebrate
As the final chapter
Fades away
Cause they can’t hide;
We can see their flesh is rotten!

The band plays a hopeful tune
The champagne is poured
As they socialize
The look in their eyes
Hidin’ the light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
And while the world that they built
Told ’em to change
Told ’em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I’m in a room watchin’ the
Dead dancin’ in their graves

Bones covered up by suits
As the visible scars,
They multiply
Kiss it good-bye
Too stubborn and now you’re destroyed!

Tick, tock
The time bomb has been
Recognized and pressurized
Nowhere to hide
Swallowin’ light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
And while the world that they built
Told ’em to change
Told ’em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I’m in a room watchin’ the
Dead dancin’ in their graves

We feel a coming strength
And now it’s too late
To change.

{background chatter}

Why’d you want to go?
You drown me with all that you are
Oh, how the mighty fall
Yeah

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancin’ in their graves
And while the world that they built
Told ’em to change
Told ’em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I’m in a room watchin’ the
Dead dancin’ in their graves

(4x+fade)
We feel a coming strength
And
now it’s too lateTo change.
