Win HAIL TO THE KING & See A7X In Boston


Avenged Sevenfold – This Means War

Hide my face again, harbor in the shadows

Feel this weight of sin hammering away

Die – with the guilt of a thousand AWOL soldiers

Die – watch the scythe usher me astray

I can’t go on this way

Not as I am today

The ugly side of me is strong

Take aim a loaded gun

Pull back on all who run

A coward’s truth inside the wrong


This Means War (3x)


Lash your tongue of bane carry me to nowhere

Mental holocaust battle never ends

Lie – mask the pain of a child who’s forsaken

Lie – to myself, praise the new regime

I left me long ago

Reasons you’ll never know

No one to miss me when I’m gone

With no more words to say

No argument to stay

Another post I don’t belong


This Means War (5x)


No home to call my own

No finding someone new

No one to break the fall

No one to see me through

No name to carry on

No promise for today

No one to hear the call

No tattered flag to raise


Walk the razor’s edge, cut into the madness

Question all you trust, buy into the fear

I – see the man ripping at my soul now

I – I know the man, I know him all too well

There’s nothing here for free

Lost who I want to be

My serpent blood can strike so cold

On any given day

I’ll take it all away

Another thought I can’t control


This Means War (5x)
