Avenged Sevenfold – Chapter Four lyrics

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

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...

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

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...

It's 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 sight of the One.
A punishment sent from his hands
A hardship that no one should know
Now go out of the sight 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 his blood cries out to me
Murder, liar, vengeance, deceit.

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

    It's a reference to the murder of Cain, of course by Abel, in Genesis 4: 1-15, hence the title "Chapter Four," and various excerpts such as "punishment too great to bear," "from the soil his blood cries out to me," "out of the sight of the One," and being sent "far away from this land," referring to his exile in the land of Nod.
    Incidentally, the band's name is arguably from this chapter, where God declared that "vengeance shall be taken on him [who kills Cain] sevenfold."

    This song is amazing. This song tells the story of Cain and Abel. Cain was a farmer whilke his brother abel was a sheperd. The two brothers were asked to give a gift to God. God had not accepted Cain's gift because it was not pure and accepts Abel gift of a sacraficed lamb. Cain becomes so jealous of his brother Abel that he kills him. He lied about it to God when he has where Abel is. God punishes Cain for killing abel. He casts Cain out to roam the land while the earth will not be plentiful and provide him as good food. Cain was in fear he would be killed by the other people so God had made a mark on him that warned everyone not to kill him. The person who did kill him would suffer vengeance seven times over. Or as better known to the world. Avenged Sevenfold.

    Yeah king of the sun and gvgeri got it right. This is probably my favorite song of theirs. They're not technically Christian music, but a lot of their songs promote it, such as this one.
    Anyway, they're an amazing band, as I'm sure anyone reading this will agree.
    Only thing I gotta add is that Cain killed Abel. King of the sun wrote it backwards, but I think everyone knew what he meant anyways so no big deal.
