Avenged Sevenfold – Darkness Surrounding lyrics

Darkness coats us.
The smell of fall.
Changing season.

The graveyard is alive, black cat across my path,
The chill of cold wind, The breath of the dead.
Imprisoned souls.
Trapped for eternity.

Black crows break the silence.
The garden of the dead's alive tonight and you can't stop it.
Just enjoy it.
Open up your mind and you will feel it too.
The sound, the touch, the thoughts, that you've been so blind to.

You can feel the thoughts of the dead.
Feeling the thoughts of the dead.
True or false, it's still there, teaching me.
True or false, still there, teaching me.

You can feel it tonight.
The wood has rotten away.
Take the time absorb it.
Their time is slipping away.
Stone all carved by hand.
Statues that resemble their faces.
They still breathe.
Come join us.

Smell the burning embers, Night flickering away.
Timeless but soon gone.
Timeless but soon gone.

I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts.
As time crumbles away.
As I crumble away

    I think the meanin of the song is found in the way it is sung. The way that the first voice is screamin all the lyrics shows us that hate is overtakin him, and then the second voice is almost like good is fightin back. When they sing together it is like a battle inside his head over the fate of his mind. Then the song trails off with the evil voice screamin as it lost the battle.
