"I'll try," she said as she walked away.
"Tried not to lose you."
Two vibrant hearts could change.

Nothing tears the being more than deception,
Unmasked fear.
"I'll be here waiting" tested and secure.

Nothing hurts my world,
Just affects the ones around me
When sins deep in my blood,
You'll be the one to fall.

I wish I could be the one,
The one who won't care at all
But being the one on the stand,
I know the way to go, no one's guiding me.
When time soaked with blood turns it's back,
I know it's hard to fall.
Confided in me was your heart
I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me.

(Guitar Solo)

Nothing will last in this life,
Our time is spent constructing,
Now you're perfecting a world... meant to sin.
Constrict your hands around me,
Squeeze 'til I cannot breathe,
This air tastes dead inside me,
Contribute to our plague.
Break all your promises,
Tear down this steadfast wall,
Restraints are useless here,
Trashing salvation's near.

Ahhh!

Nothing hurts my world,
Just affects the ones around me
When sins deep in my blood,
You'll be the one to fall.

I wish I could be the one,
The one who won't care at all
But being the one on the stand,
I know the way to go, no one's guiding me.
When time soaked with blood turns it's back,
I know it's hard to fall.
Confided in me was your heart,
I know it's hurtin' you, but it's killing me.

Ahh!

    wow...i must say im honeslty dissapointed. you all think that this song is supposed to mean just one thing. well ill tell you right now, my cuzin went to skewl with matt and zacky, and ive known them for a while now, and there songs are not about having one singular meaning, its about taking it however you want, about whatever it makes you feel, or anyway you want to relate to it. geez you call yourself fans, but being a fan is more than just finding the soul meaning of that artists song, its letting them reach out and speak to you.

    HollyV is very right...one of the most beautiful things about Avenged Sevenfold's music is that almost none of their songs have one sole meaning...If you look at the lyrics to just about any of their songs, you can tell that they make the words just vague enough to be able to represent almost anything you want the song to. That doesn't mean that M. Shadows didn't have one main purpose in mind when writing the song, but he does an amazing job at keeping their songs open and interpretable.

    Now idk if HollyV is telling the truth about actually knowing Matt and Zacky, and her cousin going to school with them, but it's definitely a possibility...so who am I to say she's lying?

    Anyway, I just like that she spoke up and pointed out that most of their songs have multiple meaning...cuz if you look deep into the lyrics, it really is true that most of their songs could mean more than one thing.
    However I gotta say, as many things that this song could be about, I do NOT think it talks about the government in anyway whatsoever.

    I'm not sure where Kashik got that idea...but I think this song is more based on a relationship of some sort.

    Another thing I'd like to point out is that this song really reminds me of "An Epic of Time Wasted" off Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. Most diehard fans would probably be familiar with this song, but just in case anyone is actually reading this and cares...if you like this song, you may wanna check out that one as well. And anyways this is long, but everyone just keep in mind that a lot of songs (ESPECIALLY A7X's) have quite a few meanings, and aren't just based on one sole thing.
    Oh and I just bought their Live DVD and CD, Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough...and I gotta say, THEY ARE AMAZING LIVE!...I hope to someday see them in person and not just on a DVD...but go pick that up and watch it...it gives me hardcore goosebumps when I watch it.

    i think this song is about a girl who hurt a guy in some way, and now hes to the point nothing affects him. but by letting nothing affect him, hes hurting others worlds. it seems like "she" wants to get back with him, but he would rather not because what may be hurting her, is killing him inside
