Avenged Sevenfold – Victim lyrics

House full of roses
A letter on the stairs
A tape full of messages for anyone who cares
Collage of broken words
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 it's not okay
It's the end of all you've known
Time keeps passing by
But it seems I'm frozen still
Scars are left behind
But some too deep to feel
And some say 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
Some days you'll find me
In a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself
Bout 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 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
And 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 unkind
And all the speculations
Save it for another time
'Cause we all need a reason
A reason just to stay
And Some just can't be bothered
To stick around another day
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We've all been 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 (x4)

    When I first heard this I thought it was about the rev's passing, but he was alive when it was written. I think it has to do with the pain we all feel when we lose someone we love. I think that the slight adjustment to the chorus at the end, the change to "we've all been victims of a crime" is to aknowledge that we all can sympathize with losing a loved one because it's something we've all experienced.

    This song hits me, I feel a sudden feeling of sadness. How the rythm of the song is being played and how matt shadows sings it. I believe the songs about jimmy sullivan "the rev" whom past away & hes singing of the loss of the former drummer. Whos been a "victim of a crime" meaning jimmy's sickness, & how he was a victim. & how hard it is for them to get by. I love this song!

    I know the few men who wrote this had put meaning into it, but this song gives me its own meaning.
    Matt is telling me everything's gonna be alright because we all go through this. Good things last for so little time, and at the same time, he's telling me to get over it.
    The song also has a philosophical aspect to it. It's just something about this song that gets to me.

    The song is most likely in reference to the late "rev"; however, my interpretation is that the "crime" is god (or whomever) taking another person and, in this particular case, far too soon. The reference "don't need your salvation, save it for another time" suggests the anger with this referred higher power and how when you lose someone dear to your heart, the last thing you wanna talk about is the very person who took your dearly beloved away.

    This song is definitely about what it was like for the members of avenged sevenfold after the rev's death. Waking up every morning and knowing that he's not there. This song is mainly about M. Shadows feelings and emotions towards the death of their best friend jimmy because M. Shadows wrote this song as a way of expressing his sadness and pain into writing a beautiful song called victim. Every fan of avenged sevenfold will miss the rev as much as his friends, band members and family. Jimmy we all love you, rest in peace my friend.
