Avenged Sevenfold – Bat Country lyrics

"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 try to drive all through the night,
The heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to stay, 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 I 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 follow me; show me what it's like to be set free.

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.

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.

(guitar solo)

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.

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.

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.
I've known it from the start all these good ideas will tear your brain apart.
Scared but you can follow me I'm too weird to live but much too rare to die.

    This song is referring to the movie and book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson. Bat Country is referring to when the character Raoul Duke "sees" huge bats flying in the air and his attorney Dr. Gonzo stops the car, Duke says: We can't stop here. This is bat country.
    The Final line "I'm too weird to live and much too rare to die" is also from a line in the book where Duke describes Dr. Gonzo as "A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."

    Don't listen to avenged-meanings, no offense. This song is a tribute to the late great Hunter S. Thompson. (Caught here in a fiery blaze, Heat stroke ridden weather) is talking about the desert they (Hunter and his attorney) Crossed to get to Las Vegas. Hunter and his attorney had a huge drug collection they took with them. At the beginning, "He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man" Is a quote from Dr. Johnson, Who was quoted at the beginning of The movie and book, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". "I'm too weird to live, but much too rare to die" Is a quote from near the end of the book. I would know, I'm a huge fan of both A7x and Hunter Thompson. : D

    From what I read in the wiki. This song is based on the movie starred by johny deep. Titled Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, nice song I though, I really like it. Especially the ending bridge., its resembling to life itself lol. At first we are about to kick some a*, then we have our joy, and we get stress out and starting to regret. Soon later were kicking asses again jumped around, like crazy frog. Then get so lost and disturbed till the part of the main bridge you scream. And in the end there you are. Sat in the corner again and have a gloomy regrets.

    Nomad17 is correct on where A7x got the influence from the song from. Tho I don't believe that's what its all about simply what influenced it. I've never seen the movie or read the book so I couldn't honestly say, but thsi seems to be about how people try to make themselves better than they should be, but end up making themselves worse in the end. And then they want to go back but need help. Such as using steroids or other drugs.

    It kinda makes me think about the things I know about people I know and myself. You can get yourself so down in a bit of a hell, but after a while you can grow addicted to the pain and suffering that you get from it, you let people know but let yourself go too far and no one can help you out of what you have gotten into, and it just affects everything about your mental state which makes you feel as if there is no one else but yourself.
    And then the last line in the song "I'm too weird to live but much too rare to die" just fits in with the rest of it. Such a confusing life style and way of thinking that people may fear you. And yadda. My ramblings shall stop lol.
    But awesome song ^^
