Album: Avenged Sevenfold (2007)
  • Centuries passed and still the same
    War in our blood, some things never change
    Fighting for land and personal gain
    better your life, justify our pain
    The end is knocking
    The end is knocking

    We've all been lost for most of this life
    (lost for most of this life)
    Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
    And I know that most of us just ain't right
    (most of us just ain't right)
    Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

    How many lives will we take
    How many hearts destined to break
    Nowhere to run, can't escape
    Full of ourselves, tied to our fate
    The end is knocking
    The end is knocking, yeah

    We've all been lost for most of this life
    (lost for most of this life)
    Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
    And I know that most of us just ain't right
    (most of us just ain't right)
    Following the wrong steps, being led by pride

    With peace of mind so hard to find
    We're dwelling on the drastic signs
    Another way to numb our mind
    And as you close your eyes tonight
    and pray for a better life
    you'll see it flying helplessly away

    We've all been lost for most of this life
    (lost for most of this life)
    Everywhere we turn more hatred surrounds us
    And I know that most of us just ain't right
    (most of us just ain't right)
    Following the wrong steps, being led by pride Writer/s: ZACHARY BAKER, ZACHARY JAMES BAKER, BRIAN HANER, JR., BRIAN ELWIN HANER, JR., MATTHEW SANDERS, MATTHEW CHARLES SANDERS, JONATHAN SEWARD, JAMES SULLIVAN, JAMES OWEN SULLIVAN
