Avenged Sevenfold – Fiction lyrics

Now I think I understand
How this world can overcome a man
.
Like a friend we saw it through
In the end I gave my life for you.

Gave you all I had to give
Found a place for me to rest my head.
While I may be hard to find
Heard there's peace just on the other side.

Not that I could
Or that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin,
Let it burn.

Left this life to set me free
Took a piece of you inside of me.
All this hurt can finally fade
Promise me you'll never feel afraid
.

Not that I could
Or that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin
Let it burn

I hope it's worth it, out on the highway, yeah
I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you

So tell everybody, the ones who walk beside me, yeah
I hope you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight

I hope it's worth it, what's left behind me, yeah
I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you

So tell everybody, the ones who walk beside me, yeah
I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight

    This song is just. Wow; I mean. Wow! The Rev is just. Just. Wow, again. I still can't believe we've actually lost him, but I solemnly believe we haven't. He's just teaching God how to play drums; He'll be back soon. :)
    The song made me cry; I don't know, it just makes me feel like Jimmy knew he was going to die - Thumbs up if anyone agrees.
    Anyways, great songs, great vocals, great lyrics, just awesome.
    R.I.P The Rev.

    I think the rev was 2 in love with his friends, family and music 2 ever wanna leave them purposely. This song seem's more like a dream then a suicide note. Like maybe just maybe he had one of thoes dreams where you wake up and you think ur dead. Maybe this is just his way of telling us how he felt. How real it all seemed. The accidental overdose was just a freak accident in my eyes. Like M. Shadows said. "this song sounds like jimmy predicting his death." what if he was just preparing him self cuz he was scared of his own dream.

    In the interview with M. Shadows on kerrang radio, he says that this song sounds like jimmy predicting his death.
    Jimmy completed the writing of this song just 3 days before he left us :(
    I do not believe, however, that this is his suicide note, as if any of you have seen film such as 'Avenged Sevenfold - All Excess', you will see the lively man he was, and that he was surrounded by so much love.
    Quote M. Shadows - the rev is everyones best friend. At weddings, he is always the best man.
    R.I.P buddy
    Avenged Sevenfold Forever xx.

    I love this song and the revs death affected all of us now he did die of natural causes and this song did make a big connfliction with the thought of him commiting suicide but this song was just a song to him and great one at that and he left us with a very vivid and candid memory of him and avenged will never be the same without him but the important thing to know was he was happy and his memory will live on forever. Just remember heroes are remembered and legends live forever. Rest in peace Jimmy.

    Did you know that Fiction original title was "Death", and it's changed the title to "Fiction" for some reason, and the lyric "Let it burn Under my skin, Let it burn." does that meaning that was cremation, and lyric "I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight" mean Jimmy/The Rev want that Avenged Sevenfold would still continue making a song without him. But Overall I Love This Song.
