  • (Conceived) Give me your hand (and born was one of light)
    Blood is spilt and man will follow (Rain and dark)
    Infernal man,(rain and dark, the other born black night) punishment too great to bear

    Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
    Fall from grace, unholy night
    I've come here to kill you
    Won't leave until you've died
    Murder born of vengeance
    I closed my brothers eyes tonight

    (Conceived) Give me your hand (and born was one of light)
    Blood is spilt and man will follow (rain and dark)
    Infernal man (rain and dark, the other born black night)
    Punishment too great to bear

    Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
    Fall from grace, unholy night
    I've come here to kill you
    Won't leave until you've died
    Murder born of vengeance
    I closed my brothers eyes tonight

    It's cold tonight as the clouds turn gray
    And from my hands to my brothers grave
    You took his side, you took his gift
    Feel the power of a fallen man, crestfallen man

    Far away in this land I must go
    Out of the site of the One
    A punishment sent from his hand
    A hardship no one should know
    Now go out of the site of the one
    Away in this land you must go

    (Oh oh oh) Where has he gone? What have you done?
    A voice commands from high above this earth
    From the soil his blood cries out to me
    Murder, liar, vengeance, deceit Writer/s: Brian Haner, Jr., James Owen Sullivan, Matthew Charles Sanders, Zachary Baker

  • Collin Caves from Oskaloosa, Iaavenged sevenfolds name came from the same book and chapter of the bible lol. its Genesis 4:15
  • Sam from Elk Grove Village, IlThis has to be my fav song from A7X. It is just so epic! Waking the Fallen is, in my opinion, the greatest album to come from them. However, I love *all* of A7X's work; they are just that amazing.
  • Bill from Wayne, NjLove this song. It's ironic, it was the reason I joined my band,(Which is largely instrumentally influenced by Avenged Sevenfold) and the story of where A7x got their name.
  • Bubba from Reno, Nvm. shadows is the singer, the screamer was zacky. in live performances the don't scream, but just sing it
  • Alan from The Meadow Of Rainbows, United KingdomThis song has hxc lyrics, "I'm coming to kill you, won;t leave until you die"
  • John from Moline, IlJoshua, you wrote mythology twice, once in the middle of your comment, and once at the end
  • Joshua from Phoenix, Azwell alot of bands write music based off of mythology, whats dfferent about them writing about religion???
  • Jackson from Austin, Txits funny they sing sinister music but thier name comes from the bible
  • Tina from Santa Ana, CaLol. Who cares. its more of a gothic manner to me. Lol. Not much of a believer in the bible but they made a damn good song out of it :]
  • Bobsaget from Santee, CaI dont get it thy write all dese songs about christianity and related subjects, but they say they arent religious + m. sheaddows and rev got kicked out of catholic school they might have been religious at one point in life. but u never know....... O.o >_<
  • Casey from Whitestown, InThis is an obvious match to CHapter Four of Genesis...and its A7X's best song so far

    ~16 more days~
  • Manny from Green Lane, PaWho really cares? It's a great song. The only thing is who's m. shadows is he the screamer or the singer on that song?
  • Nathan from Conyers, GaAlso they get the Name of the band from Genesis 4:15
    "And the LORD said to him, ?Therefore, whoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.? And the LORD set a mark on Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him."
    (vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold)=Avenged Sevenfold
  • Austin from Parma, OhGenesis is a kick ass band.
  • Spencer from Windsor, CanadaMatt and Zacky explain this song in there interview in AP this last month and it's about the 4th chapter of Genesis in the Bible when Cain kills Abel and God marks him so he can never be saved. Genesis is The first book of the bible it means the Beginning. This is by far the best song on Waking the Fallen.
  • Alex from St Louis, MoCain and Abel some parts are word for word in Genisis
  • Alexis from Mackinac, MiGenesis is a BOOK, in the bible, not a chapter. It's based on Chapter Four OF Genesis, which is book one. But, it's awesome that the whole song is based out Genesis. Thanks for the fact.
