Avenged Sevenfold Critical Acclaim Lyrics

Last updated: 04/01/2014 05:55:42 AM

(Shh..Be quiet! You might piss somebody off!)
Like me mother fucker
You've been at it for too long
While you feed off other's insecurities
You stand here in front of me and bite the hand that feeds

(Self righteousness is wearing thin)
Lies inside your head, your best friend
(Heart bleeds but not for fellow man)
Broken glass, your fake reflection

I've hand enough it's time for something real
Don't respect the words you're speaking gone too far

So how does it feel to know that
Someone’s kid in the heart of America has blood on their hands
Fighting to defend your rights so you can maintain the lifestyle
That insults his family’s existence?

Well, where I'm from we have a special salute
We wave high in the air towards all those pompous asses
Who spend their days pointing fingers
(Fuck you)

(Shh.. Quiet, might piss somebody off)
Like the heartbeat of this country when antagonized too long
I’ll be damned if you count me in as part of your
Generous hypocrisy, collected and amazed

Tabloid gossip we want less real
(There’s no need for us to bury you)
Selfish agenda once again
(Right this way, you dug your own grave)

I've had enough it's time for something real
Don't respect the words you're speaking gone too far

All the way from the east to the west
We got this high society looking down on their very foundation
Constantly reminding us that our actions
Are the cause of all their problems

Pointing their fingers in every direction
Blaming their own nation for who wins elections
They never contributed a fucking thing
To the country they love to criticize

Excuse the obscene, ignore the untrue
Depictions we see, try and get through
Admitting mistakes can hurt
I’m not the last but I sure ain’t the first

(Shh.. Quiet, might piss somebody off)
Self righteousness is wearing thin
(Lies inside your head, your best friend)
I’ll bleed but not for fellow man
(Broken glass, your fake reflection)

I've had enough it's time for something real
Don't respect the words you're speaking gone too far

Thanks A7X | Reviewer: Missouri's Soldier | 4/1/14

All I have to say is thanks Sevenfold for making a song that truly characterizes the upper-class for what they truly are a bunch of no-loads with shit for brains that need to have a true lesson in humility, by God's Grace, administered by the heroes that defend their right to insult us and throw stuff at us and then put in a note to their buddies at congress and get us shipped out to die so the cycle can start again. Thanks!

no title | Reviewer: kaitlyn | 2/27/12

I love this song. But its hard to have the wrong lyrics its "ive had enough its time for somethin real, I don't respect the words you're speaking gone too far a clone" I think I just got a tiny piece wrong too but I knw for a fact I got most of what I just typed right

Lyrics | Reviewer: | 2/12/12

These lyrics are all sorts of fucked up. i appreciate people that try and help others out by submitting lyrics, but honestly if you are just gonna submit the wrong lyrics dont waste your time or anybody else's. thanks bunches

Fucking Amazing! | Reviewer: Syn Angel | 1/21/12

This song is great because of the following reasons:

1. This is Avenged Sevenfold's.
2. The drums are great, and so are the guitar, and of course, Syn's Solo.
3. Matt's voice is just perfect and what makes this even greater is that THE REV, SYN, & ZACKY also sing in this one - ain't it just great???!!!
4. The is one of the few songs where we could still hear THE REV's voice! May God rest his soul foREVer.
5. Overall - the song is just simply amazing... Fuck the political issues this song is just great!

So I hope you haters would just stop hating because you can't even do what A7X have done! Can you write your own song? Can you drum like Jimmy? Can you do Syn's Solo? Can you sing like Matt? Fuck I don't even know you and so the rest of the world! You're just a filthy faggot trying to get some attention... lololol

WHAT THE F@$! !!!!! | Reviewer: DAVE critical acclaim potter | 6/28/11

ok all, the first comment was harsh about a7x writing political lyrics, most of there songs, much like rise against, rage aginst the machine and a hell of alot of other bands (cbf typing youll be here all day reading my list) write about politics, its a fucking good way to get the message across to the general public... as for the rest of you, for shame let the moron be a moron, live love metal and peace yall, from an aussie that knows alot

too many wankers | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/27/11

this song is EPIC and so are all of A7X's in my opinion and some fuckin wankers don't understand what pain the've gone through, they lost one of there best friends and in my opinion the best drummer in the world and some cunts just think 'oh the're shit' if they dont like them fair enough but dont make it seem as if the've done fuck all the've stuck through thick and thin and i salute that keep rockin' A7X fans R.I.P the rev btw im only 13

Political topic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/10/11

To the guy who said that A7X isn't much for political lyrics: I think what this song stand for more than anything is how our troops are sacrificing themselves, not for freedom, but for the rich man's greed. Another good song with the same message is "Survivor Guilt" by Rise Against.

I do agree though: with what they do normally as a band, there's not really a place for political songs. Regardless of lyrics, their instrumentation is SICK!!!

Dear Brock. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/16/11

You're an idiot. No really, you are. First off, you come to a site where FANS of bands go, and insult them? You knew you'd get attention. Secondly, if you can't even talk right, don't go around posting shit. I feel significantly dumber after reading your comment. Go back to second grade and GTFO.

weeeeee | Reviewer: Sofarawayrev | 3/17/11

AVENGED SEVENFOLD fucking rocks i wake up to nightmare every mornin its great and its true my nightmare starts when i wake up rock on avenged sevenfold lovers you guys roll fuck the faggot ass pussys on here peace out
seize the day is my motto stick with it

Avenged Sevenfold Sucks? | Reviewer: Chelsea | 3/2/11

If you were a real fan of A7X, you would pull your head out of your ass and realize that this album is awesome.
The same thing happens with a lot of bands, they change their sound a bit and their fans have a shit-fit. It's really annoying. You should be grateful that they even made the album since The Rev died.
Also most of you need to work on your spelling and grammar.

Ranting......and a lesson.......may be....... | Reviewer: Katy Miller | 1/26/11

Why waste your time being negative about something you truly know nothing about. You really can't say a song is garbage, because of what ever reason you pull out of your butt. Make sure its something legit and not something as lame as "oh I don't understand what's being said" or even my favorite one "they're sell outs". Those are not reasons, and quite obvious, you don't know what your talking about. Music industry is a pain to work for, they are tough on their artists. You think being a song writer, a singer, or a musician is easy, its NOT! Try working under a deadline on something that has to appeal to a certain amount of people, and still have it as something that actually means something to you, and is apart of you. Try having to be away from the people you care about, and then on top of that, have to deal with psychos and neurotic fans. Oh and lets not mention that you have to follow your contract and if you don't, not only is there legal actions taken against you, you lose everything. And on top of all that, you have a group of people, or some one, up your butt about something not being done. The rock (every genre of) industry, may be a bit more lax, but they are still under a lot of pressure.

So complain if you want, just keep it to yourself. Just because your miserable, and don't like something, doesn't mean you can make others that way too.

A7X ROCKS!!!!!!

What The Fuck. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/10

To be honest, if you don't like the other songs, you obviously haven't listened to them , and the guy who said 'the 4 good songs' happen to be the 4 most mainstream. See where that puts you wanker, call yourself a Sevenfold fan,; you preppy shit.

great song to recognize fewly appreciated heroes | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/8/10

JEEZ great band!!! one of the few bands out there that recognizes our country men that defend us, even those that criticize, make conclusions and point fingers. the people out in the middle east are dying, getting hurt, watching people die, missing there loved ones, for what? to come home to a buncha dick hole bastards that couldnt give a shit what tthere going through.

great song | Reviewer: zumer7 | 10/11/10

This song is deffinately one of avenged sevenfolds best, I like the experimentation with all the different vocal styles, but I found a song that M. shadows can actually scream and make it sound. I think this is their best album, and that nightmare closely follows it. I didn't really care for sounding the seventh trumpet, but they've deffinatly grown since then.

A7X rocks good to recognize the military, because they are the one's making the sacrifice.

The best song. | Reviewer: luiz | 8/1/10

i think that critical acclaim is one of the biggest songs of a7x and its theme is awesome! I think that a7x think about us while writing their songs about war like mia and gunslinger. And i love when they talk about religion in songs like beast and the harlot. A7x rock!
