Avenged Sevenfold - Sidewinder Lyrics




I slide through the wasteland that's my world
My hunger takes your life, preyed on to keep me alive, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty in me

Can't you feel the poison rising out of the morning and clear through the night
You can feel my strength destroy you straight to the heart from the venomous bite

That's right I shed my skin tonight but my fangs are hard to hide
And you know that you're going to die, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty to me

Can't you feel the poison rising out of the morning and clear through the night
You can feel my strength destroy you straight to the heart from the venomous bite
I can't regret, can't escape decisions made for me, no control
Fire that burns but never dies, wrapped around I'll bury my fangs inside

Making my way through the night you're still in my sight
You're running away cause you know you can't hide
My instincts are cold blooded hate; to you I'm the bearer of fate
Wrong place and now the wrong time, now terror is all that you'll find

Can't you feel the poison rising straight to the heart of the venomous bite
Can't you feel the poison rising out of the morning and clear through the night
You can feel my strength destroy you straight to the heart from the venomous bite
I can't regret, can't escape decisions made for me, no control
Fire that burns but never dies, wrapped around I'll bury my fangs inside

Stay inside tonight - you're out there all alone
Vanish from my sights - venomous control
You won't make it right - my appetite has grown
Lost the final fight - no love will be shown

Stay inside tonight - you're out there all alone
Vanish from my sights - venomous control
You can't make it right - my appetite has grown
Lost the final fight - no love will be shown

  49. Anonymous IDK

    ...im so stupid, this took me way too long to realise that they're referring to the snake 'Sidewinder'. Goddamn it. I've loved this song for years and I knew what a sidewinder was, but never once did I put two and two together 😑😂 lyrics and title should have made that pretty obvious 😂

  50. Dakota Bulter

    The rev was a fucking legend. His drumming skills surpass even Neil Pert. Rip Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan.

  79. laferrari

    OK. We have had a Metallica movie come out, I think an A7X movie is well overdue. I well and truly believe that Avenged Sevenfold is one of the most musicly diverse bands out there.

    cyansaint

    Best of our generation. In 10 years people will discover them and recognize how good they are.

  80. MABL2998

    That latin-taste in the percussions, love it

  81. Ethan Porter

    First time ever hearing it. Only one word describes this song, magnificent. The way this song is done is so fucking crazy and just all out awesome. Another good A7X song added to the favorites!

  82. Ahmadi Alfari22

    Good Joob

  83. sire playz

    its burns

  84. gyssi isiasji

    Is it Ukulele at the end? Its soooo good

  85. crtitical thinking

    a7x must perform sidewinder, betray, wicked end, girl i know, victim, reminission, strength of the world ... in their live

  86. Sweeties Fam

    Love it when the double bass drums sound like vinnie paul hitting thr pedals...

  87. Darian64

    I understand that the meaning of this song is supposed to represent the snake known as the Sidewinder. However, I have my own head-canon on what this song represents. The Shining. Think about it. The song is called Sidewinder, which also happens to be the name of the town where Jack and his family came from in the movie. Not to mention, the lyrics sound like the thought process of a serial killer, which in this case would be Jack Torrance. Just something to think about.

  88. Taylor Nowa

    Easily my favorite A7X song. they made me love metal, and though i dont hear people adoring this song; this song is so well thought out.

  89. tofa Vlog

    Live mana live😥

    Finaldi amsyah
