Avenged Sevenfold - Darkness Surrounding Lyrics




Darkness coats us
The smell of fall
Changing season

The graveyard is alive, black cat across my path
the chill of cold wind, the breath of the dead

Imprisoned souls
Trapped for eternity

Black crows break the silence
The garden of the dead's alive tonight and you can't stop it
Just enjoy it

Open up your mind and you will feel it too
The sound, the touch, the thoughts, that you've been so blind to

You can feel the thoughts of the dead
Feeling the thoughts of the dead
True or false, it's still there, teaching me
True or false, still there, teaching me

You can feel it tonight
The wood has rotted away
Take the time absorb it
Their time is slipping away
Stone all carved by hand
Statues that resemble their faces
They still breathe
Come join us

Smell the burning embers, time flickering away
Timeless but soon gone
Timeless but soon gone
[x3]

And I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts
As time crumbles away
Time crumbles away

Smell the burning embers, night flickering away
Timeless but soon gone
Timeless but soon gone

And I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts
As time crumbles away
Time crumbles away

Avenged Sevenfold Darkness Surrounding Comments
  1. Elante Picard

    How come A7X doesn't like this album?

    Stupid Loser

    Im pretty sure they matured way past making anything like this years ago now. Im not sure theyd even want to make anything like this right now. Also, theyre probably bugged by how many things they could do better now, like the drums, vocals, and production. Its a messy but good album but there's no shortage of things you could 'ew' at if this was something you made 20 years ago. Im just guessing, but thats usually why bands dont like their old albums. Periphery hates their first album pretty much, and that album isnt even half as messy as this one and was only 10 years ago. Its easy to see why A7X wouldnt like ST7T to me personally

  2. James Dickfield

    Fav song

  3. Salvador Fernández Vargas

    2020 🤘🤘🤘

  4. THE KILLSWITCH

    When M. Shadows said “imprisoned souls”, did anyone else think he said “exponential?”

  5. Shady Steve

    People hate on this band all they want, but this album gives me some of the best headbangs in all of music.

  11. Garrett [REDACTED]

    Is this the Rev's best song with his drumming? He goes off on the drums in this and I get mesmerized from it.

    Brian

    @Luis Not even close

    Luis

    @Brian Hmm are you sure? i dunno, i love Darkness Surrounding especially the solo, but idk for me it gets kinda repetitive in the end of the song

    Brian

    @Luis yeah pretty sure lemme go back and revisit the other 2 lmao

    Scott The Probot

    @Brian streets has crazy drums

    Scott The Probot

    Also check out the drums on demons off of their diamonds in the rough album. They just re released it and it's given me the chance to rediscover the good drums on most tracks

  12. The Natural Health Blogger

    Darkness coats us
    The smell of fall
    Changing season
    The graveyard is alive, black cat across my path
    The chill of cold wind, the breath of the dead
    Imprisoned souls
    Trapped for eternity

    [Verse 1]
    Black crows break the silence
    The garden of the dead's alive tonight and you can't stop it
    Just enjoy it
    Open up your mind and you will feel it too
    The sound, the touch, the thoughts, that you've been so blind to
    You can feel the thoughts of the dead
    Feeling the thoughts of the dead
    True or false, it's still there, breaking me
    True or false, taking me, breaking me

    [Verse 2]
    You can feel it tonight
    The wood has rotted away
    Take the time absorb it
    Their time is slipping away
    Statues carved by hand
    Statues that resemble their faces
    They still breathe
    Come join us

    [Chorus]
    Smell the burning embers, time flickering away
    Timeless but soon gone
    Timeless but soon gone

    [Chorus]
    Smell the burning embers, time flickering away
    Timeless but soon gone
    Timeless but soon gone

    [Chorus]
    Smell the burning embers, time flickering away
    Timeless but soon gone
    Timeless but soon gone

    [Post-Chorus]
    And I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts
    As time crumbles away
    Time crumbles away

    [Chorus]
    Smell the burning embers, time flickering away
    Timeless but soon gone
    Timeless but soon gone

    [Post-Chorus]
    And I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts
    As time crumbles away
    Time crumbles away

    Chris R

    Thank you.

    James Dickfield

    Thank you.. holy shit never knew the lyrics and this had been my fav song for over a decade now its my fav again

  21. No1Gr8ter1

    probably my favorite song of old a7x

    Stephen Jones

    No doubt about it. This is my youth right here man, I remember when I first heard this band w/ my best friend, went to their show and then basically indoctrinated our entire peer group in our little cowpoke town and blew all their minds, basically from 6th through 9th grade this album and the next were the soundtrack to my existence and honestly got me through some rough, dark times along w/ a few other bands in particular and a few of their albums basically from 18 through my early 20's until I cleaned my act and life up a bit.(Dream Theatre another) This album and band will always hold a special place in my musical heart even though they suck now and have for a bit.
