Avenged Sevenfold

Shepherd of Fire – Avenged Sevenfold

Let’s take a moment and break the ice
So my intentions are known
See I have pity in watching you suffer
I know the feeling of being damned alone
I’ve got a storybook of my own

Don’t you see I am your pride,
Agent of wealth,
Bearer of needs? (And you know it’s right)
I am your war
Arming the strong
Aiding the weak
Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Well I can promise you paradise
No need to serve on your knees
And when you’re lost in the darkest of hours
Take a moment and tell me who you see
Won’t tell you who not to be

Now you know I am your pride,
Agent of wealth,
Bearer of needs. (And you know it’s right)
I am your war
Arming the strong
Aiding the weak
Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Disciple of the cross and champion in the suffering
Immerse yourself into the kingdom of redemption
Harden your mind through the chains of the divine
Make way for the shepherd of fire

Through the ages of time
I’ve been known for my hate
But I’m a dealer of simple choices
For me it’s never too late

I am your pride,
Agent of wealth,
Bearer of needs. (And you know it’s right)
I am your war
Arming the strong
Aiding the weak

I am your wrath.
I am your guilt.
I am your lust. (And you know it’s right)
I am your law.
I am your star.
I am your trust.

Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Afterlife – Avenged Sevenfold

Like walking into a dream, so unlike what you’ve seen.
So unsure but it seems, ’cause we’ve been waiting for you.
Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste.
Of your afterlife here so stay, you’ll be back here soon anyway.

I see a distant light, but girl this can’t be right.
Such a surreal place to see so how did this come to be,
Arrived too early.

And when I think of all the places I just don’t belong,
I’ve come to grips with life and realize this is going too far.

I don’t belong here, we gotta move on dear, escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right to move on and on, far away from here.

A place of hope and no pain, perfect skies with no rain.
Can leave this place but refrain, ’cause we’ve been waiting for you.
Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste.
Of your afterlife here so stay, you’ll be back here soon anyway.

This peace on earth’s not right (with my back against the wall).
No pain or sign of time (I’m much too young to fall).
So out of place don’t wanna stay, I feel wrong and that’s my sign.
I’ve made up my mind.

Give me your hand but realize I just wanna say goodbye.
Please understand I have to leave and carry on my own life.

I don’t belong here, I gotta move on dear escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right to move on and on, far away from here.
Got nothing against you and surely I’ll miss you.
This place full of peace and light, and I hoped you might,
Take me back inside, when the time is right.

READ  Critical Acclaim - Avenged Sevenfold

Loved ones back home all crying ’cause they’re already missing me.
I pray by the grace of God that there’s somebody listening.
Give me a chance to be that person I wanna be.
(I am unbroken, I’m choking on this ecstasy.)
Oh Lord I’ll try so hard but you gotta let go of me
(Unbreak me, unchain me, I need another chance to live.)

[Screaming and maniacal laughter]

I don’t belong here, I gotta move on dear escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right to move on and on, far away from here.
Got nothing against you and surely I’ll miss you.
This place full of peace and light, and I hoped you might,
Take me back inside when the time is right.

Nightmare – Avenged Sevenfold

Nightmare!
(Now your nightmare comes to life)

Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil’s show
To be his guest forever
Peace of mind is less than never
Hate to twist your mind
But God ain’t on your side
An old acquaintance severed
Burn the world your last endeavor

Flesh is burning
You can smell it in the air
Cause men like you have
Such an easy soul to steal (steal)
So stand in line while
They ink numbers in your head
You’re now a slave
Until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness,
Turning, haunting, yearning
Pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
Ooh, it’s your fuckin’ nightmare

(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can’t wake up in sweat
‘Cause it ain’t over yet
Still dancing with your demons
Victim of your own creation
Beyond the will to fight
Where all that’s wrong is right
Where hate don’t need a reason
Loathing self-assassination

You’ve been lied to
Just to rape you of your site
And now they have the nerve
To tell you how to feel (feel)
So sedated as they
Medicate your brain
And while you slowly
Go insane they tell ya
“Given with the best intentions
Help you with your complications”

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooh, it’s your fuckin’ nightmare

READ  Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold

[M. Shadows laughing]

Fight (fight)
Not to fail (fail)
Not to fall (fall)
Or you’ll end up like the others
Die (die)
Die again (die)
Drenched in sin (sin)
With no respect for another

Oh

Down (down)
Feel the fire (fire)
Feel the hate (hate)
Your pain is what we desire
Lost (lost)
Hit the wall (wall)
Watch you crawl (crawl)
Such a replaceable liar

And I know you hear their voices
Calling from above
And I know they may seem real
These signals of love
But our life’s made up of choices
Some without appeal
They took for granted your soul
And it’s ours now to steal

(As your nightmare comes to life)

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooh, it’s your fuckin’ nightmare

Avenged Sevenfold

Strength of The World – Avenged Sevenfold

My story starts the day they said “she can’t be found”
the news so dark, heart stopped, I stood silent without a sound
It’s over, she’s finished, mother lies with your father and sister too
Cold-blooded, they suffered, shot down by the outlaws after you
Sorrow swallows my screams

Strength of the world – is on my shoulders
Strength of the world – is on my side
Strength of the world – the one true beholder
Ice in my veins – for those who’ve died

I’ve seen my family fade away, you’ve taken my whole life
There’s nothing left to say

Avenge the dead killed all who crossed me in my path
Suicidal, I never planned on coming back
I want it, I need it, revenge is dripping from my teeth
Need nothin’, to feel power, and bring the killers to their knees
Nothin’ ta lose vengeance ta gain (you know I’ll never be the same)
So taste my breath I’m close behind you (so desperate on your final day)
Sorrow swallows my screams

Strength of the world – is on my shoulders
Strength of the world – is on my side
Strength of the world – the one true beholder
Ice in my veins – for those who’ve died

I’ve seen my family fade away, you’ve taken my whole life
There’s nothing left to say

Sitting in silence with heaven above me I prayed every night by their graves
While I search for closure I feel it no longer
I can’t turn my cheek away
I stand before you; I’ll sin when I have to
But now I leave your side, to avenge my family’s pride

READ  Warmness On The Soul - Avenged Sevenfold

I’ve seen my family fade away, you’ve taken my whole life
There’s nothing left to say

Strength of the world – is on my shoulders
Strength of the world – is on my side
Strength of the world – the one true beholder
Ice in my veins – for those who’ve died

So far forever now alone, a greater punishment on me has been imposed
A killer falling from the light, I’ll miss my family, I’ll never be alright

That’s all she wrote
