The Wicked End (Avenged Sevenfold)

Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's words rang so true Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, it's all through Don't kill the messenger cause As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery Voice your prophecy, shed us some light Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears A stab in the dark but it wounded our will We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time We've grown into the numbers six hundred sixty six War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight Eclipse and heaven shall fall Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery Voice your prophecy, shed us some light Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears A stab in the dark but it wounded our will Dust the apple off, savor each bite And deep inside you know Adam was right Lust and power, indulgence, no fear Left with his sins, how does this end? We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time As the prophets shed the light on what's to come the crowds did gather Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms These will be our final days and I can't let go Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying Flesh is tearing, some still fighting In this world of misery Voice your prophecy, shed us some light Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears A stab in the dark but it wounded our will Dust the apple off, savor each bite And deep inside you know Adam was right Lust and power, indulgence, no fear Left with his sins, how does this end? We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time
