Remenissions Lyrics - Avenged Sevenfold

Review The Song (37)

With this ink in our skin we've sealed our fate,
And the axe comes early
(Only naturally) So what does that matter?
There's a bed of skeletons waiting for me,
On the other side
They're waiting for my next move (next fatal breath)
Human lives to me seem so unreal, can't see through the fog
(Nothing past a grey wall) See past the stereotype
Belief, structure built up in you.
I'll tear you down and the one who created you

If they didn't have One how would they act?
If we didn't have hope how would we behave?
Would they still feel remorse if they slaughtered innocent beings?
Or is hope the only thing that keeps you sane?

A good friend once told me you are memory
Without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
Their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down
But keep away from me
Keep away from me

Keep away from me
Keep away from me
Keep away from me
(It's hard, to keep me in this place, keep away from me)

We may have created the beginning, mentally
We may have created the beginning, physically

To the end of our human existence

I see through you
The fear that's in your eyes

A good friend once told me we are memory
Without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Timeless my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
Their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down

I don't know the answers but neither do you

So Far Away | Reviewer: Gigi | 1/17/12

I read somewhere that 'So Far Away' was NOT written FOR Rev, but it ended up being "USED" for him after his death. The song was written by Syn when his grandfather passed away. In the interview, Syn said they were both working on the song for an entire night and Rev helped him put the "finishing touches" on it.

OK | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/13/11

most of the album was written before the rev died, there are a couple of songs where they changed the lyrics and whatnot after jimmy died. also the guy who said the song fiction was written for pinkly smooth is wrong, it was written for avenged. also pinkly smooth wasnt his side project, it was a band he was in with brian when they were kids.

Ok for all the ppl talking about the songs and the rev. The rev made avenged who they are he HELPED write most of the songs he wrote all the chords and musical stuff for the band he was majorly freaking talented. Now when it comes to fiction he finished recording around Christmas and told M. Shadows that he had done all he could for the record and basically said goodbye without saying goodbye. 3 days before that his wife had cheated on him and he drank a bunch. He had always told everyone he was gonna die before he was 30. And fiction was written for pinkly smooth (his side band for ppl who don't know) and was originally titled death. Idk how avenged got ahold of it.

clearing everythin up | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/7/11

ok, ok. Pretty much everyone on here is confused. So Far Away was written FOR Jimmy after he died.If you go look on YouTube for So Far Away, they will have their music video which shows their childhood together. So the comment 4 down from me is wrong, Fiction was not the only song about him. It did have partly to do with him because he said it had to do with some parts of his life, but So Far Away was also written for him. Fiction was written BY Jimmy shortly before he died. He just wasn't able to record all the songs on the album before he died. I know he did record at least a couple songs before he died. So on the album Nightmare, some are Jimmy and some of them are Mike playing. Just thought I should clear everything up :P

You're all half right I guess.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/6/11

Well he does scream, but they already planned it out that their first album would be completely screamo. Their second album would be have screaming half singing. Their third would be completely singing, and then they'd go from there.
And also So Far Away is made for the Rev. Fiction was WRITTEN by the Rev when he died, which I think was also about himself. Case closed.

RIP The Rev. He was an amazing drummer and vocal, and an amazing person.

Surgery | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/19/11

Whoever said Matt didn't have throat surgery, you're wrong. He did. he had a blood vessel removed from his neck back in the early 2000s. Its just not a DIRECT cause of his not screaming. Clearly, it plays into it.

You're all wrong. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/9/11

I saw them live on the Warped Tour. Before they played the song So Far Away, M gave this huge speech about how the song was written for the Rev. So Fiction definitely isn't the only song about the Rev. And actually the Rev wrote A LOT of the music on the album. They had the songs down but hadn't had most of them recorded when he died. From what I heard, lol.

Actually | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/11

The ONLY song that even had anything to do about Sullivan's death was Fiction. It was because Fiction was a nickname Sullivan gave himself and the song originally had the name 'Death.' After Jimmy finished it he said, "That's it, it's all finished." Three days later, he died.

ummmm no | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/11

all the songs and shit were written with jimmy and the whole band, just after recording a few of em is when he passed. there really arent any songs about his death except so far away and i believe lost it all

think people | Reviewer: that guy | 1/30/11

For those people who were complaining that nightmare was all slow and sad, its like that for a reason. Rev died after recording the songs Nightmare and Welcome to the family. They wrote most of the songs after that about his death. foREVer

awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/16/10

a7x has and always will be my favorite band i wished theyd go back to their screaming dont get me wrong i enjoyed their stuff from nightmare but come on its not them half those songs r slow or sad as shit this is what its all about

Screaming... | Reviewer: yellowbus0d00m | 9/29/10

They scream again is what counts.I saw em live and matt was gettin real into screaming God Hates Us, I think they reverted to a different sound at city of evil, and continued it to their self titled...both are amazing CD's, but Nightmare to me brings out what A7x truly is, and theres screaming :p

Avenged | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/11/10

Amazing definitely amazing! After they cut the screaming, and the drummer died very unfortunate
! One of my inspirations, this band just lost their originality.
About 130 in Darkness Surrounding the drums are epic.

Why A7X Stopped Screaming | Reviewer: Matt | 4/16/10

Matt didn't have throat surgery, they just wanted to make an album that wasn't as heavy. Watch The Making of Avenged Sevenfold, you'll hear exactly what I'm about to say. Screaming was only used for background vocals in City of Evil as a transition and they stopped completely in Avenged Sevenfold.

Best song! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/19/10

In my opinion this is the best song in the collection. Great screaming and singing, fast strumming, and the holy fucking grail of rev drumming. He just mixes it up so beautifully and this song show the entires band full potential. they should make more songs like this.
