This page contains lyrics from the album
"City Of Evil" by Avenged Sevenfold, which was released in 2005 and consists of 11 songs.
"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.
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
Beast And The Harlot
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.
Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go and 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 left for me to do
I feel it burn inside, burn in me like the rising sun
Lifted into the sky, took away 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
(And I felt down I need you there every note, and every word seems so hard to take finally, we're destined)
Blinded In Chains
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)
Burn It Down
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 ya 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)
Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings can't be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, ohh tonight.
Stand up and fight.
The fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong.
I walk your land but don't belong, two million soldiers can't be wrong.
Seize The Day
Seize the day, or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to Ache over
I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry
These streets we travelled on will undergo our same lost past
I found you here, now please just stay for a while
I can move on with you around
I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?
I slide through the wasteland that's my world
My hunger takes your life, preyed on to keep me alive, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty in me
Can't you feel the poison rising? Out of the morning, and clear through the night
You can feel my strength destroy you, straight to the heart from the venomous bite
Mm, that's right, I she'd my skin tonight, but my fangs are hard to hide
And you know that you're going to die, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty to me
Strength Of The World
My story starts the day they said "she can't be found"
The news so dark, heart stopped, stood silent without a sound
It's over, she's finished, mother lies with my 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
The Wicked End
Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel
The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's words rang so true
Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, it's all through
Don't kill the messenger girl
As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery
Voice your prophecy, she'd us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
Trashed And Scattered
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)
And 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 you goddamn motherfuckers always wasting my time
