Danger Line

Album: Nightmare (2010)


  • This is a track from American rock band Avenged Sevenfold's fifth studio album, Nightmare. The song tells the tale of a soldier fighting on the frontlines, who is mortally wounded.

  • Jo from Ohio Usa I could definitely see how it could be interpreted the way you are saying Josh...and I feel it is really cool that you read into the song and found a deeper meaning there...I often find myself doing the same sort of thing.
  • Josh from Canada, BcPS I should have proofed my comment before posting... my bad. I was thinking faster than I was typing. I meant an extremely lousy relationship in my first line, and the second line I meant to say "It seems like any dummy..."
  • Josh from Canada, BcAnyone else interpret this song to be a person in a very extremely relationship that gets their heart broken then tries to move on? The seems like any dummy can say its a song about war and a guy dying. To me it seems like girl does/says something so devastating that it is like a bullethole that shocks guy. Guy goes through the dying stage which is a realization that things are over between him and his crappy relationship but at the same time thinks that he will miss it. The last line of the song of "im free" is an ironic paradox for the fact that he is free from pain and on to a heaven/eternal life but is it a good free now that he has left his human life and "GF?" My interpretation is that he is free from the crappy relationship but the paradox of freeness would be the loss of his deep emotional connection to the girl. Anybody?
  • Parker from Carbon Hill, Alall right! first comment! this is a great song, my favorite off their new album though would be natural born killers
