Bat Country Lyrics - Avenged Sevenfold

Review The Song (166)



He, who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man!

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.

I tri-ie-ied to drive all through the night,
The heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to me.

Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

As I-I-I adjust to my new sights the rarely tired lights will take me to new heights.
My hand is on the trigger I'm ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it but everything's all right.
Mental fiction, follow me; show me what it's like to be set free.

Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).

No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.
These eyes won't see the same, after I flip today.


Sometimes I don't know why we'd rather live than die,
We look up towards the sky for answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by,
Don't want your absolution cause I can't make it right.
I'll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man.

Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.

I've known it from the start
These good ideas will tear your brain apart.
Scared but you can follow me
I'm too weird to live but much too rare to die

They're just AMAZING!!!! | Reviewer: Metalfan | 9/15/12

I'm a fun of metal music and although I prefer the << clasic >> bands of this genre ( IRON MAIDEN, Metallica, Motorhead, Accept, Helloween ect ), I looooove Avenged Sevenfold beacuse their sound is so fucking awsome!!!! I mean awsome music, awsome vocals AND awsome lyrics. There are'nt many bands nowadays that can compare these three things and make metal music live forever!Keep rocking A7X 'cause there are still some people like me that appreceate REAL music. And for all the teenage girls out there, stop being victims of the trend and start listening to some REAL, QUALITATIVE music!!!! ( I'm sorry for my English, but I'm Greek. I just wanted to express my love about metal music, although I'm a girl).

Amazing in a purely musical sense | Reviewer: qorthdl | 5/28/12

Aside from the fact that this song was based off of "Fear and loathing in Las Vegas," I think musically, this song is an incomparable masterpiece. From the way I see this song, you can roughly divide this song into several different components. Each little blocks of melody combined with intricate guitar and drum parts stand out as unique and yet when they are put together seem to flow flawlessly while never failing to surprise the ears of the audience. I actually became A7X's fan after listening to this song when it first came out when I was in high school, because I was completely fascinated by the complexity of this song. It was definitely nothing like other "pop" songs that they played on MTV. After seeing their music video for this song for the first time I immediately went out and got myself the "City of evil". In my opinion "Bat country" is probably one of the tracks that successfully achieves perfect balance between being complex but incoherent and being melodically pleasing but too simple. Especially because I felt that some other tracks from this album had the complexity aspect but weren't quite there when it came to the coherence of the song as a whole. That is not to say that I thought other songs were bad, not at all.

I forgot about A7X for a while and finally when they came out with the album "Avenged Sevenfold" I couldn't believe that they came back with yet another masterpiece album. I love bands that are willing to experiment with different genre and styles, and are just willing to push themselves further to test their limit. It is such a tragedy that the Rev had to leave us so soon, because I feel like he could have done soooo much more with his amazing talent for A7X. R.I.P Jimmy. His body is gone but his legacy will live on forever in his fans.

Yet another amazing song... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/21/12

I don't think there's a single A7x song that isn't pure awesome... Everytime I hear one, I can't stop playing and singing it. Bat Country is really top class stuff... Insane guitar solos, fierce drumming and a very talented vocalist. I totally agree with the comment titled 'can't help to just love this band'. A7x, please come to South Africa!

can't help to just love this band | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/27/12

They are truly amazing... I started kayaking and play them on my mp3 player every time I'm on the water and there is really no feeling like it.

I especially like the lyrics that go "I'll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man." because scientific researchers have proven time and time again that the primary reason for war amongst humanity is due to the evolution within male testosterone levels. It's obviously more complicated than that but you get my drift. And yes A7X did point at the war and U.S troops in the song Critical Acclaim and probably several others.

They are one of the only bands who's style truly evolves in such a unique way. Personally there is not even one track on Waking the Fallen & on Nightmare that I don't just want to repeat to over and over again, and I love all the other albums just as equally. What I also like about them is that they are not one of those overly popularized bands that pose and are over the top in fame and in your face trying to be different. A7X are just genuinely talented and skilled and that's what got them millions of albums sold worldwide. Interestingly I first heard of them by word of mouth back when they had released City of Evil and have been a serious fan ever since. Korn was also on my top list but something about new Korn just puts me off but maybe it’s just me. Also A Perfect Circle are incredible. I listen to Mozart and also a lot of New Age stuff so sort of weird like that.

The REV has truly inspired me to learn how to drum soon when I can make enough money for lessons. May he rest in peace and may he be remembered by the world as a true artist. I hope his spirit lives through the band members so they may continue to create such incredible music and tour the world! South Africa especially please!

Ill make a beast out of my self | Reviewer: Johnny Depp | 11/4/11

Anyone else know this song is based off the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas? I had no idea and then i watched the first 5 minutes of it. Fucking crazy but awesome movie, im watching it blazed as i speak

A7X | Reviewer: Nick | 9/23/11

I'm glas there is so many A7X fans on here. I myself am a very big fan. I love them they are in my "big four". Metallica, Megadeth, Judas Priest, and Avenged Sevenfold. The only critcism I have of them is that I wished they had released more albums. But they rock and they are kickass and beautiful I'm lucky I got to see them in concert last weekend rock on A7X we love you \,,/

Awesome song | Reviewer: Anon | 9/19/11

I really like the City Of Evil album cause M. Shadows changes his vocal technique. in the past, he would use more Metalcore techniques like screaming. I think prior to this album, the only songs without screams are Warmness on the Soul and I wont seee you tonight Part 1.
BTW Rest In Peace Jimmy the Rev Sullivan. We miss you

fuck mcr | Reviewer: Ahah | 6/9/11

well i used to like mcr a lot more than a7x during 2006 ~ 2008 but then i gradually liked a7x more but mcr was STILL in more favour. and then when mcr released the danger days album, i fucking hated mcr. a7x foREVer <3

Good times... | Reviewer: ~DITD~ | 4/11/11

Okay, this was one of the first songs I bought off of itunes. I always try to figure out this song on the guitar, but I'm not the insanely awesome guitarist from Avenged Sevenfold.

Headache from headbanging and trying to hold some notes out that long...

So, it seems this site is a little behind. (City of Evil is not their newest album... is it? I swear there's a new one...)

A7x vs. MCR? | Reviewer: Chelsea | 2/15/11

Why are we compairing A7x to MCR? They are two totally different bands!
I, personally love them both, but thats just my oppinion. Other people might not agree with me, and that is their oppinion, and I respect that. But, you can say a band sucks just beacuse you don't like the way they sound. Everyone has different musical tastes, and I wish people would stop bashing on bands they don't like.
Support the bands you do like, and leave the ones you don't alone.

Metal = Lifestyle | Reviewer: Petty Officer 1st Class Cable | 1/20/11

i agree metal is not about studs and leather and all that Bullshit (none of the black metal i listen to is either same goes for death metal) metal is a lifestyle as much as it relates to politics and if you just look behind the lyrics and all the angry shit(which is awesome) you'll see the metaphors behind some of the stuff

Music | Reviewer: Amrahadabra ^^ | 12/3/10

Metal is not to wear studs, have leather clothes, playing loud music and so on ..
They are as much about emotion, politics, religions, and other things like any other music genre. Maybe in Black Metal you care about clothes and makeup, but idk...
I personally am not one like that really big fan of A7X, so can not call them the best band in the world, but not the worst band that is... :)
So to say that all metal is about that, then you do not know what you're talking about... :S
Dress how you want, feel a compulsion to have black clothes, black makeup, then you are weird.
But this is just how I see it, is certainly someone else out there who does not think like me!

Dan? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/10

I really don't care what people say about the music i listen too. Okay so A7X got a little softer... SO WHAT your saying that in order to play metal you need to wear make up and spikes and leather. Personally you have no idea what your talking about because last time I checked The Black Dahlia Murder Is Metal and they don't wear any of that shit and you should probably know that Queens of the stoneage didnt make another one bites the dust.

cids | Reviewer: Sam | 7/27/10

Yup, this song is most likely about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It could just be about any general bad acid trip though and they just based some references off Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, that idk. But from a trippers perspective, I really wouldn't be surpised if members from Avenged Sevenfold have or do drop acid lol
