Avenged Sevenfold Burn It Down Lyrics

Last updated: 09/08/2011 11:00:00 AM

Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I'm here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Dont need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn you down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fail
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (See it in my eyes)
Now I can understand
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Whoa, yeah!

You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breathe
A crutch for you that won't always be there
Hide in the dark another day, the fear in you is here to stay
So keep the fuck away from me and learn to trust the words I say

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn you down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fail
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes)
(Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand
Put faith in you for the last time
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Ha! Yeah, yeah!

Run from me before I tear you down (Be afraid)
You chose the wrong side (It feels so right)
I won't help you, let you rot away (Despise what you say - Chorus vocalizing)
Run towards the light exposing your soul (We won't be there by your side - Chorus vocalizing)
Salvation's dying (Somebody's crying)
We're all gone in the end (Chorus vocalizing)
Sweet child we'll miss you
Whoa, so far away, far away

I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes - Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand (Put faith in you for the last time)
It's sorrow that feeds your lies

Falling away
Can't buy back time
Burn it down anyway

Star Wars | Reviewer: Mezmerus | 9/8/11

I'm the only one who thinks this song is about Star Wars II, III and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.
Like "Hatred fuels my blood/I'll burn you down" is Anakin on a rage after his mother died and "One king to watch the horsemen fail... I won't help you, let you rot away" is when Obi-Wan defeats Anakin and so on. Anyone agree whit me?

Can you all just get over who's better and who's not! SERIOUSLY! Just enjoy the damn song! Reguardless if you like Avenged Sevenfold or not, They're an awesome band, with awesome lyrics. I'm a huge fan, but I like tool too. It's not something to argue about, its an opinion, opinion's are like assholes, everyone has one, you don't like it, don't comment, or don't read it, just please for the love of god shut up about it!



Too complicated! | Reviewer: Courtney | 9/20/10

Wow, way to complicate it dude. I don't listen to music to think of big words, i listen to music because of the way it sounds, the way it makes me feel. Stop cutting a song into bits of rhythm and listen to the whole thing.



HOLIC | Reviewer: CONSTANTINE FINATA | 6/25/10

Well, musically... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/16/10

Drums are not the only instruments in a song. Different rhythms from all instruments, when used properly, can enhance the quality of a song. However, how did Pachelbell's Canon in D become so popular if it's a repeated 8-chord pattern? There is more to a song than rhythm, and depending on the mood the song is trying to create, the rhythm doesn't necessarily need to vary. With Avenged Sevenfold's style, the solo is actually worse than the guitar line in the backdrop of the interlude preceding it. Out of five, I'd give this song a 2.5 for ingenuity. For a well-constructed, Beethoven level composition, listen to "Almost Easy". Note that the syncopation in the chorus is actually in the same time signature.



Tool vs. A7X? | Reviewer: anon | 3/24/10

On the whole Tool vs. A7X thing, why does everyone think a good song must consist of good solos and differing beats? And Tool does not have the same beat repeated... BOth Tool and A7X are my favorrite bands, as well as Muse. Who says one can't enjoy variety?



Burn It Down | Reviewer: Michelle | 2/18/10

I love this song so much, it has much meaning to it. So people please listen. We are suppose to REVIEW about the song, not about a7x vs. tool. Mkay? Now please get on with life and just focus on great music that you are listening to!



Tool? | Reviewer: Allie | 1/16/10

Oh please? Tool sucks major ass, dude. I hate their twelve minute long songs about nothing, at least Avenged Sevenfold has beat & lyrics that you can get into. The only song I like by Tool is Schism, I'm sure that's everyone's favorite song by them, because it's mass played and the only song I can understand. Avenged Sevenfold has vocals, great guitar solos; all Tool has is a reoccurring beat the entire song, and words that don't cohere to each other in the least. Sorry for ripping on your music, Toolfans, but we all have our opinions.



Burn it D0wn | Reviewer: Jord | 8/22/09

I like A7X more than tool, this is merely because of my individual taste in music not because of one outdoing the other. last time I checked music wasn't a contest but more of a gateway into the soul or some other metaphorical bull shit like that. I don't its right to think of any music as better then anyone elses simply because it cannot be proven to be. Just because a song is dynamic or has a faster beat doesn't mean a slower song is worse. noob.



Tool vs. A7x | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/15/09

Anyone who thinks A7x is better than Tool is sorely mistaken. I have the utmost respect for A7x's music; however they're lacking in a lot of areas, the first that comes to my mind is dynamic variability, the second being meaningful lyrics. And they sound terrible when they slow down. Tool just belongs to a different tier of musical quality.
