Avenged Sevenfold – Eternal Rest lyrics
Black enchanting eyes,
Cut through my heart
With no regret or sign of life
They tear apart my pride
And cold runs through my veins
I feel their stare from miles
Haunting every step
And they won't stop hunting me down
I know the time will come,
When all around me's burned
And you'll still see me there
Asking where you went too
And what person brought you here
And why you left the burning children
Cold out in the night
And calling for you all alone...

Dark in their hearts,
I can feel it burn inside of me
Tormented young with no soul, haunting me
Pain in their life all they know is misery
Take these chains away that are holding me down
(Holding me down)

They'll find you alone
Your desperate and villainous ways
Turning their hearts into stone
They seek more than vengeance
Look in their eyes, your pain is their satisfaction
Look in their eyes and see the darkness take hold
(Waiting for x4)
Burn.. For the rest of time!

Hear the haunting words
Lost children with no heart are crying
(Turning there hearts into stone)
And you're the lost mother they're calling
(Go now, run and hide)
I hear them crying at night
Outside when their planets are falling
They want to feel and know you hear them


Go now / Run and hide
Eternal Rest / In time

    What I can gather from this song, is it's basically describing the demons inside and when they gain control, you fall into an eternal rest, and it says in time as in time you will awaken from what seems to be an eternal rest, now this is all speculation and I don't know if this is true or not, but in the beginning of the song it says, "Black enhancing eyes", morning the demon coming out and seeing, hence the black eyes. When the song says, "Burn... for the rest of time!" It means that either you or the demon shall burn for eternity, or the rest of time. Like I said, this is all speculation and I can't prove it to be true.
