Avenged Sevenfold – Scream lyrics

[Verse 1]
Caught up in this madness too blind to see,
Woke animal feelings in me.
Took over my sense and I lost control,
I'll taste your blood tonight.

[Pre-Chorus]
You know I make you wanna scream,
You know I make you wanna run from me, baby,
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time.

[Verse 2]
Relax while you're closing your eyes to me,
So warm as I'm setting you free.
With your arms by your side, there's no struggling,
Pleasure's all mine this time.

[Pre-Chorus]
You know I make you wanna scream,
You know I make you wanna run from me, baby,
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time!

[Chorus]
Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring.
Cover me, unwanted clemency!
Scream till there's silence,
Scream while there's life left, vanishing.
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire.
Perishing.

[Verse 3]
We've all had a time where we've lost control,
We've all had our time to grow.
I'm hoping I'm wrong but I know I'm right,
I'll hunt again one night.

[Pre-Chorus]
You know I make you wanna scream,
You know I make you wanna run from me baby,
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time!

[Chorus]
Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring,
Cover me, unwanted clemency,
Scream till there's silence,
Scream while there's life left, vanishing.
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire,
Perishing.
Oh!

[Hook]
Some live repressing their instinctive feelings,
Protest the way we're built don't point the blame on me.
Scream, scream, scream the way you would if I ravaged your body,
Scream, scream, scream the way you would if I ravaged your mind.

[Chorus]
Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring,
Cover me, unwanted clemency!
Scream till there's silence,
Scream while there's life left, vanishing,
Scream from the pleasure, unmask your desire,
Perishing.

    Well I think the artist wants the song to mean whatever you want it to mean but vampires? Haha really? I'm a huge vampire fan. I read the Twilight books about a million times. I own the movie. I also read all the House of Night books that are out. And this song really never made me think of vampires at all. So uhh vampires is a kind of weird thing to think of as the meaning. But either way I think its about rape. "pleasures all mine this time" that makes me think of rape. When your being raped your not going to be like "oh baby your so good" or whatever haha "scream till theres silence...scream while theres time left, vanishing" that probably means the girl that's being raped is fixing to die and he wants her to scream. Either way I really don't think its about vampires. Just because something mentions blood doesn't mean its about vampires. Geez ^.^

    This song can go both ways. It is either a song about extreme, hardcore, animalistic s**, or about how he murdered a girl and he liked it alot. The animalistic s** is from when he says pleasures all mine tonight suggests that he wants to be in charge of their s** night. And when he says relax while your closing your eyes to me tonight, and scream the way you would if I ravaged your body. The murder sense is from he'll taste her blood tonight, wanna run from me baby, (who would want to run from M. Shadows, sexy), and when he says he will hunt again one night. That means for more girls.

    I think this song is just a tribute to the movie "scream" by wes craven, I mean in the album before "city of evil", they dedicated two songs to two famous people, one to hunter S. Thompson (idk) "bat country" and another song to "dimebag" darrell (late guitarist for pantera), and maybe they just wanted to do another tribute, plus there are some lyrics wich remind me of scream like "i'll taste your blood tonight", ghostface from scream loves to stalk his victims, and kills them very slowly, another part is where M. Shadows sings: "unmask your desire", makes me think that the desire is to know who's behind the killer's mask, I. E. To "unmask" him/her, and the last thing I would like to mention is the part where he sings "don't point the blame on me", in the scream movies is all about pointing fingers to everyone, because anyone could be the killer, ready to strike at every moment.

    This song is definitely about rape. "your arms by your side, there's no struggling" he is going to rape her, and she believes that he'll let her go if he cooperates. "scream, scream, scream the way you would if i ravaged your body" yeah, point and case. It is so very wrong and sick and twisted, but awesome. I often tell people its about vampires because it gets a less bewildered look from people unfamiliar with and violence in songs.

    At first this made me think of a guy with a dominance fetish and a masochistic female then I listened more and thought the taste you blood tonight could for under the 2 fetishes I listed above but perish? This means death was in here yet it says unmask your desire. So it can go between murder/rape to rough s**, which I'm sorry you "innocent" people but that happens a lot more than you think, probably in your parents bedroom too. But this song really can go multiple directions.
