Welcome to the Family Lyrics - Avenged Sevenfold

Review The Song (8)



Hey kid, do I have your attention
I know the way you've been livin’
Life so reckless, tragedy endless
Welcome to the Family
Hey there's something missing
Only time will alter your vision
Never in question, lethal injection
Welcome to the Family

Not long ago you’d find the answers were so crystal clear
Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear
Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself
You can't win this fight

In a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside
sponsored links
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight

Hey I have to question
What's with the violent aggression
Details blurry, lost him too early
Welcome to the Family
Hey, why won't you listen
Can't help the people you're missing
It's been done a casualty re-run
Welcome to the Family

I try and help you with the
Things that can't be justified
I need to warn you that
There is no way to rationalize
So have you figured it out now
So have you figured it out
You can't win this fight

In a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight

gunning for you
And all mankind
I've lost my mind
Psychotic
rabid dementia
I won't be fine

[Solo! :)]

I see you're a king
who’s been dethroned
Cast out
In a world you've never known
Stand down
Place your weapons by your side
It's our war, in the end
We'll surely lose
But that's alright

So have you figured it out now
So have you figured it out

And in a way it seems there's no-one to call
When our thoughts are so numb
And feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight


(Deep inside
Where nothing's fine
I've lost my mind
You're not invited
So step aside
I lost my)

(Deep inside
Where nothing's fine
I've lost my mind
You're not invited
So step aside
I lost my)

the lyrics go
I see your a king who's been dethroned
cast out in a world you've never known
stand down, place your weapons by your side
it's our war, in the end we'll surely lose but-that's alright



Message in the song | Reviewer: Sandra | 6/16/11

I believe that this song is sending a message in the lyrics. A warning actually, of how we all are oblivious to our surroundings. To what is happening in the world.

"I try and help you with the
Things that can't be justified
I need to warn you
There is no way to rationalize
So have you figured it out now"

Thats my point of view anyway. Long live the Rev though his spirit and let A7X continue to make great music as it has.



Hmm... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/20/11

This song was wrote before Jimmy had passed away, it can't be welcoming to Mike to the 'Family' To the person saying that it's for Black Ops, you sir are wrong. That song is called 'Not ready to die' But also, the lyrics on this song have a significant reason towards any Avenged fan it speaks of losing Jimmy, it has the touch of Jimmy magic enough said.



"Welcome to the Family" is about Call of Duty: Black Ops. | Reviewer: Gregory P | 5/14/11

The title says it all.

It's not about welcoming a new guy to the band, this song is about the Zombies game you play on Call of Duty series.

i love this song..
and i know , we lost the best drummer all the time, Jimmy...
yeah, Jimmy never want to see his band are missed..
Jimmy want to A7X still on here..
and never dies...

'Welcome to the Family , Mike'
And Rest In Peace 'Jimmy The Rev Sullivan



Great | Reviewer: Regular A7X Fan | 2/28/11

This is amazing and to me this is the song that not only tells someone that they are alone but says that they welcome this individual to be part of the family... I do relate to this as in feeling alone but no one has welcomed me to their "family" yet :(



great song | Reviewer: zumer7 | 10/13/10

I think it has multiple meanings:
They did indeed lose the rev, and they are trying to welcome mike into the group.
Also, it caries a message:
Life isn't only experienced by one person, but us all and sometimes we forget that.
It speaks to teens, hey kids, tragedy endless, only time will alter your vision, and of course welcome to the family, which could mean yeah its rough we've all been their before, and you just have to keep a cool head and suffer through it.



What it means... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/16/10

This is my interpretation of the song... and I think I might be right. This song is about welcoming Mike Portnoy to they're "family" after the loss of Jimmy. This can be heard in the lines "We all have emptiness inside" and "Details blurry, lost him too early."
