Avenged Sevenfold – Beast And The Harlot lyrics
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.

The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, myrrh and pearls,
Her plagues will come all at once as her mourners watch her burn,
Destroyed in an hour,
Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too,
Will weep and mourn this loss with their sins piled to the sky,
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.

The day has come for all us sinners,
If you're not a servant you'll be struck to the ground,
Flee the burning, Greedy city,
Looking back on her to see there's nothin' around
.

I don't believe in fairy tales and no one wants to go to hell,
You've made the wrong decision and it's easy to see
,
Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us,
Your welcome to the city where your future is set, forever
.

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.

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.

    Lol with Lyricsman. King of songs not every song is just random s*t they can think of. I mean it takes a couple of years, coe came out in 05 and their latest self-titled came out in 07. Not to mention they speak of why they wrote the song. I mean when I'm playing on my drum set I'm thinking. "Fuckin awesome Rev how do you do this...blah...blah..." or with the guitars like freakin awesome chorus. But when I sit and pay attention to the lyrics it all has a message. I'd like you to show me songs that don't have messages except some rap and hip hop s*t because they don't give a s*t of society, most only care for money, cars, jewelery, girls and showing girls in inappropriate ways like stripping, dancing, juking, and tell them how to shake something.

    Actually you're wrong, it means Babylon as Earth defiled by sin--as it is today. We act as evil kings, reveling in our filth and drunkenness, and the harlot represents all the sins of today. Besides, demons don't live in Hell. That's stupid and naive, incongruous with theology. They live here. The bible calls them the kings of earth, and Satan the "...god of this system of things". He also offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world--and could he have if they were not his to offer? In any case, this is not a religious song. Ax7 is not a Christian band, they just know that some damn good inspiration comes from the Bible. They said so.

    Well I see alot of government talk being. Well. Talked about here so I figure i'll throw myself into the coversation here. I completely agree with the Knowledge guy except for this nonsense about the number of the beast having been around. Or at least the part about everyone already having accepted it, I'm pretty sure I would notice I 666 was anywhere on my person and wait what's this?. It's not. So in the respect I gotta disagree with you man. Or woman.

    First of all, you'd have to be a complete idiot not to notice that they definitely referenced the Book of Revelation to make up the theme of this song. They send out almost every single message they possibly could just by looking at the lyrics to this song. Sure, someone could find other meanings in what they think his song means to them, but what they aren't seeing is that they want you to say what you think it means, not what you think they meant it to mean, because its obvious they based this song off of Revelation.

    Gvgeri you can't really seem to trust wikipedia it is really an unrealiable source. As for what Knowledge of truth says, I can see all of what you said to the lyrics, but most of this is more translated from a biblical text, but it could also be translated to a modern text. What I also mean to say is that most of this information isn't really incorporated in the video, but the answer could be America wanted to censor what it really meant and make it seem different than waht it sounds like or the video producer had no clue on what to be doing on the video.

    The city of rome wasn't also called the w*e of babylon, The w*e of babylon is something all in it's own as the bible say's those who fornicate with w*e of babylon are going to hell, the w*e of babylon being the you. S. As the you. S. Is after all the risen roman or egyption empire, which is why it is called new egypt by the illuminati which is why the you. S. Colors are the same as egypt red, white, blue, and their symbol is a 5 point star which we have 50 of on our flag, now the meaning of egypt is hemmed in or boxed in, thus the 10 square miles of washington dc, we still use the Babylonian system, and have been for quite some time. We are all prisoners without knowing it by secret international contract, your birth certificate providing the basis, as you don't have a birth title. You don't even have a car title it says certificate of title, look the two up in a black's law dictionary and you'll find a surprise, we do not own ourselves, our property, or anything in that matter, as the corporation known as the you. S. Owns it. Which they take your birth title and sell it on the securities exchange market, to the federal reserve who buys it and uses it as collateral to float leins and loans to make money for the corporation, havn't you wondered how a paper currency really works? Well there you go that's how, it is representative of our production, everything is used as collateral, the United Stats incorporated in 1871 via an act to Establish a gov. For the district of columbia. The United States Code Section 3002 15(a) defines United States as a federal corporation. I could keep going but it's worthless to try.

    This song iss telling the story of our world in a biblical perspective. Avenged sevenfold is not a christian band but sometimes uses the bible as insperation for their music. The song is talking about how the world is a sin filled place filled of us humans who are represented by the demons. In the chorus it says, "She's a dwelling place for demons." This is talking about the world being a imperfect society.

    Ok, um, knowledgeoftruth, I'm a perfectionist, and that was much.
    The tower of babylon; it's almost like today with people trying to play God; they were trying to get to heaven. And kingofsongs, all lyrics have a meaning, not to mention the fact that if they didn't we would pretty much laugh at all the people making music because it would be gibberish, which in today's society is almost acceptible, but not quite.

    I agree that its bibilcal refference but don't think that it is veiwing the biblical text in a positive light. Look at this line, "Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us,Your welcome to the city where your future is set, forever. " that is not anywhere close to christain. Weither or not it refferces to rome is illrelevent.(on that subject I belevie it litterly reffers to the "Beast"mentioned in revelation). If you haven't noticed I'm christain :)

    The woman in this song is babylon and the beast is satan. It could either be that or she is the antichrists right hand man. And the beast is as I said before is satan (in other words the antichrist). This will all take place after the dissapearances. After God has taken his children to heaven. Babylon will be a satanic place after this that's why they say she's filled with demons.

    I agree with the rome part, however, this relates to the book of revalations in wich it prophisises that the w*e will be killed by a beast with 7 heads and 10 horns which is also mentioned in the song, what do you reckon this is. I believe that it refers to north nort-east. Etc, and its self because the romans had a massive civil war between the west and the east.
