Well how the times have changed
Lookin' back it seems so clear now
Everything you wanted in your life
Everything is certain, try and understand
Put a checklist on your wall
I am not what you think I should be

But you're makin' amends, through your circle of friends
And you're trying to fit me to their mold

[Cause you're gone when 29 is there to fall]

Yes you're makin' amends, through your circle of friends
And you're trying to fit me to their mold

['Cause it's you who won't lie to us at all]

When you're trying to make decisions
Will you try to water this thing down
Look up once in a while, you see it's not so clear
The things you believe in are the things that's worth keepin'
You make a promise, stand right by your words

But you're makin' amends, through your circle of friends
And you're trying to fit me to their mold

Your circle of friends
Your circle of friends
Your circle of friends

Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
