Avenged Sevenfold – Shattered By Broken Dreams lyrics

[VERSE 1]
I see you fading away from us,
I'll miss you very much.
Room with empty bottles, broken dreams,
And pride still running high, always on your side.

[CHORUS]
But I wanted more for you.
You can't go on this way.
And now I see it all fall through.
We pray for better days.
Stuck alone and scared.
Throw your life away and now choking on your pride may be the only way.

[VERSE 2]
I don't want to see you like this.
We all tried to save you but missed.
I still feel the hope on your road.
Now come back to us like the days of the old.
I still feel you there, trying to get on top.
You'll always have my support, in my heart.
People you've hurt.
Friends that you've lied to.
But we understand, and that's not you can see the end of the road,
I can see it too, for you, I'm scared, if I lose you, I'm not prepared.
This time, if you die.
I watch you, right before my eyes.
Just trust me, and listen.
You have no self control.
This will take your life.

[BRiDGE]
Overdose and then indulge until you die.
Pondering, we all ask the question why.
Broken home, and then abandoned by your dad.
And we are left the only family that you've ever had.

Overdose and then indulge until you die.
Pondering, we all ask the question why.
Broken home, and then abandoned by your dad.
And we are left the only family that you've ever had.

[CHORUS]
But I wanted more for you.
You can't go on this way.
And now I see it all fall through.
We pray for better days.
Stuck alone and scared.
Throw your life away and now choking on your pride may be the only way.

[VERSE 3]
Help you see it through.
Fight this me and you.
Reaching deep inside.
Problems not just you is what we find.
Our friendship makes it mine.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo...(fade til end)

    This was the first song that a7x wrote for Justin Meacham, who was the band's former bassist. Matt walked in on Justin when he was committing suicide. The "Room with empty bottles, broken dreams" line shows that Justin tried to kill himself with lots of cough syrup bottles. That "You have no self control" line might be a reference about Justin's bipolar disorder.

    I think this song is about someone who is basicly throwing their life away. "i see you fading away from us" that line shows that the person is just fading from his friends. While his friends miss him and try to help him but he doesn't seem to want help or doesn't care. They know this could kill him or serious hurt him and he still doesn't care. He may not have any family, but his friends and he sees no point in life. He is dying right before everyones eyes and they miss him and want him to live. I think the singer is trying to save him in the end. Because they have a strong friendship the singer feels it is he's duty to save this man that he needs to.
