Chapter Four Lyrics - Avenged Sevenfold

Review The Song (83)



() = Background Vocals

(give me your hand,
blood is spilt and man will follow
infernal man, punishment too great to bear)
Conceived and born was one of light
Rain and dark, the other born black night.

Raise your head and taste the courage
(the one of light)
Fall from grace, unholy night
I've come here to kill you,
won't leave until you've died
Murder born of vengeance,
I closed my brother's eyes tonight...

(give me your hand,
blood is spilt and man will follow
infernal man, punishment too great to bear)

Conceived and born was one of light
Rain and dark, the other born black night.

Raise your head and taste the courage
(the one of light)
Fall from grace, unholy night
I've come here to kill you,
won't leave until you've died
Murder born of vengeance,
I closed my brother's eyes tonight...

It's cold tonight as the clouds turn grey
and from my hands to my brother's grave
You took his side, you took his gift,
feel the power of a fallen man, crestfallen man...

Far away in this land I must go,
out of the sight of The One.
A punishment sent from his hands
a hardship that no one should know
Now go out of the sight of The One,
away in this land you must go.

Where has he gone? What have you done?

A voice commands from high above this earth.
From the soil his blood cries out to me,
Murder, liar, vengeance, deceit.

Far away in this land I must go,
out of the sight of The One.
A punishment sent from his hands
a hardship that no one should know
Now go out of the sight of The One,
away in this land you must go.

Really? | Reviewer: foREVer | 3/31/13

They r a none religious band it's not that they believe in science
It's the fact that they don't have time enough to worship
And that they simply don't need it and it's not important to them

Subject of "Chapter Four" | Reviewer: WulphMan | 12/25/12

The subject of "Chapter Four" (as well as the name, Avenged Seventold) comes from the tale of Abel and Cain from Catholic and various other theologies. Abel, who was born of Adam was murdered by his brother, Cain, who was born of Lucifer.

"And the Lord said unto him 'Whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall fall upon him sevenfold.'" - Genesis 4:15

Avenged Sevenfold ROCKS! <3 | Reviewer: Alissa Shape | 9/27/12

Seriously though. Have any of you seen "All Excess"? The explicitly say that most of them were brought up Catholic, and that Chapter Four, as well as the bands name, comes from the book of Genesis. Look it up.

STFU. | Reviewer: Death | 5/29/12

Shut the fuck up and enjoy the music. Who cares what they are or who they are, that's up to them. If you enjoy what they do, listen to them. If you don't, then just simply don't listen to them. Stop arguing about their religion. t(-_-)

A7x are not anthiest | Reviewer: stephie | 5/5/12

A7x are not athiest... the song so far away says "lay away a place for me, cuz as soon as I'm done I'll be on my way to live eternally" that is a very christain thing to believe... bromton cocktail says "I know my sins have been forgiven" and also says "I know my sins have been forgotten" they are not a christian band by any means but the band memebers do have strong christian views!

They're not atheist | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/12

They went to Catholic school and all are Christian. This is a reference to chapter 4 of Genesis from the bible. When Cain killed Abel and got the mark so that anyone who killed him would be punished sevenfold. That's where the band name comes from.

A7X <3 | Reviewer: Danny K | 1/16/12

Their name is from the part in the bible in Genesis part 4, where Cain kills his brother Abel, the name is from the part saying 'Vengence seven times over' Hence forth Avenged Sevenfold.

Reference to BennyJ | Reviewer: NoneOfYourBusiness | 1/11/12

Avenged Sevenfold isnt a christian rock band. Honestly M.Shadows, AKA matt. Randomly picked out words that sounded cool in the bible. First he wanted the band to be Lips of Deceit. Until everyone in A7X pointed to the words. Avenged and Sevenfold. They were in collums. The band decided."Hey that should be our name!" go ahead. Look it up, its on there DVD

Genesis Chap 4 | Reviewer: Benny j | 12/14/10

A7x chapter four is fully reffered to genesis chapter four. A7x actually sings gods own words, Avenged seven fold the band name is actually reffered to cain and able in the verse where god talks to the people if the kill cain they will suffer vengence sevenfold. Read Genesis Chapter four in the bible, and it will all come to you. :)

atheist or christian.., either. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/19/10

This is a reference to the story of cain and abel but i honestly doubt the members of a7x are christians. rather they know the bible bc they all went to catholic school as children. just bc the use bible references dosent mean that they goto church and pray like christians. btw i am a christian and all i know is this is a badace band

cain and able | Reviewer: Taylor | 4/16/10

some people say this is atheist or whatever? In the bible it says "Then the LORD said to him, 'Not so! If any one slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.'" the band is called avenged sevenfold. this song is most definitely a reference to the story of cain and able in the bible. cain and able are brothers, cain kills able, god is pretty much pissed so he punishes him, yeah. some of these lyrics are extremely similar to the actual wording in the bible.

a7x :D | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/09

This is defintly about Cain and Able one of the lyrics is taken almost exactly from the bible "From the soil his blood cries out to me" thats the lyric this is the bible quote "Your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground!" there is another one exactly the same "punishment too great to bear" "My punishment is to great to bear. In the song it also says"you took his gift u took his side" the reason cain kills his brother is cause god acepted ables animal sacrifice but rejected cains produce.

metalcore, not screamo | Reviewer: metallica19 | 11/18/09

Avenged Sevenfold never in their career have ever been screamo, only metalcore. Screamo is a genre all it's own. In my opinion, A7X's first 2 albums and Atreyu are the 2 best bands who've covered metalcore. And Chapter Four is downright awesome.

Amazing and not athiest | Reviewer: Gonna be pastor | 11/16/09

Nothing from a7x has proved them to be athiest whatesoever or devil worshiper or anything like that. And If anyone wants to say that because a band plays heavy metal that means they're satan worship, look at Skillet, 7 Horns 7 Eyes, Living Sacrifice, and my personal favorite, Demon Hunter!!!! These are all Christian heavy metal bands.

Yes | Reviewer: Makaloraii | 10/14/09

Bible reference make the best songs :)

Atheists are just that awesome, open minded and sane...

Chapter Four is bordering on my favorite song off WTF. <3
Can't wait for Unwind the Chainsaw. I'm gonna jizz my pants when I hear it.
