Avenged Sevenfold - Shepherd Of Fire

Let’s take a moment and break the ice

So my intentions are known

See, I have pity in watching you suffer

I know the feeling of being damned alone

I got a storybook of my own

Don’t you see…

 

Chorus:

I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs (and you know it’s right)

I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak

Know me by name, shepherd of fire

 

Well I can promise you paradise

No need to serve on your knees

And when you’re lost in the darkest of hours

Take a moment and tell me who you see

Won’t tell you who not to be

Now you know…

 

(Chorus)

 

Through the ages of time

I’ve been known for my hate

But I’m a dealer of simple choices

For me it’s never too late

 

Chorus:

I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs (and you know it’s right)

I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak

I am your wrath, I am your guilt, I am your lust (and you know it’s right)

I am your law, I am your scar, I am your trust

Know me by name, shepherd of fire
