"Desecrate Through Reverance" as written by and Zachary James Baker Matthew Charles Sanders....
Hard news, taken harder, don't look to me
Disappointed, we don't agree, I don't need your praise...
(don't look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)
Never asked you to like me,
I don't want your praise (we won't play your games)
Look down on me, spit in my face,
you're nothing to me:not to me

Darkened eyes you'll see,
there is no hope, no savior in me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)
Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
what happens to me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)

My presence won't be ignored, no not today
Don't walk in my direction, turn the other way
(don't look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)
Asking questions, predetermined answers,
you won't find them here (we don't want your opinion)
And I don't want you, I won't let you think,
compromise is near. 'Cause it's not near.

I'm alone in here
No more feelings
Killed my fears
Don't ask
you'll never know
you're left behind and I'll be exposed

Far away, you keep on trying...
Holding me down, breaking away,
trying to distance my life.
Not one in the crowd, but one with the answer
the one that could change your mind

But it's not true, I don't know you
Don't waste your time, and don't waste mine
I'm not your friend, I won't soothe your soul
And in the end you're all dead to me....

    General Commentthis song is about how a friend or possibly someone more than friends, has said or done somthing he doesn't agree with and thsi person isvery condecending towards him but, still expects him to help them.This person is trying to hold him back but he's not gonna take this anymore he's "breaking away" from them
    he won't be 'lost in the crowd' anymore.

    General Commentno this song is about a persons past creating and molding how they are today and the perticulare scenerio is some one trying to befriend or get close with s/he cause they think they relate so basicaly he is giving them a realtiy check saying he isnt like them and cant help them and he isnt gonna be close with them because he thinks friendship is a lie. or perhaps this perticular person is the reason he is like this and is trying to be close with him again. basic outline is stay the f*ck away from me because i dont trust you and dont care

    General CommentThis song is badass, doesn't seem like to many people are posting under the songs off Waking The Fallen, which are all incredible songs.

    General Commenti agree. this cd is incredible! they're guitar is so friggin crazy! i think this song is about him telling people not to try to convert him to things like religion because he aint gonna do it. its a beautiful song off a beautiful cd.

    General CommentI believe this song isn't really about a resistance to being converted to religion because then why would there be so many songs with Biblical references? I think its more about someone that he had a bitter fight with in the past that he hasn't forgiven. Now the friend needs help but only finds a hardened heart from what he did in the past...maybe a connection to the betrayal talked about from Radiant Eclipse, # 8 in this cd

    General CommentThis is a good song. I think its about the end of days and about all the people who are going to hell and how it will be down there. And When it say no one will care its talking about how it says in the bible that there will be a lot of sadness from the people in heaven because they see the people in hell and then it says God will take away all their pain and then they will start there new life in heaven.

    Is Avenged Sevenfold an anti-christian band because judging by their lyrics it seems to me like it could go either way.

    General CommentAvenged isn't anti-christian, as a matter of fact, M. Shadows and [I think] Syn. Gates are the only ones who aren't religious. I know The Reverend has questions about his [as we all do] and Zacky Vengence is not a practicing but still believes. But they aren'y ANTI-Christans

    General CommentI know your probably right because they dont seem anti-christian to me, but how do you know this?

    General CommentI say they aren't anti anything, just like they aren't really for anything. They are what they are and they leave it at that. This is their best cd.
