Avenged Sevenfold - The Stage Lyrics




So I arrived, naked and cold
A welcomed change from the abeyance of a ghost town catacomb
No need for counsel, I appreciate the time I’m not alone
(Why don’t you get my lawyer on the phone?)

There were days these child eyes
Would overlook the ugliness and fantasize
I found my heart for the first time and I awakened in me
I left myself to navigate… and oh I felt control
(It seems these sheep have quite an appetite)

Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?

As the boy became a man
In came a calm sophistication I can hardly understand
So lost in ego, didn’t notice when the time had slipped away
(Yeah, everybody’s got a sob story)

Jesus Christ was born to die
Leave it to man to levitate his own to idolize
We’re simply sociopaths with no communication baby
I see your angle but we differ from our points of view
(So tell me, what’s your cross to bear?)

Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?
Tell me a lie in a beautiful way
I believe in answers, just not today

Hope my wheels don’t abandon me now,
Seeing that I’m out here alone
I’m running out of fight
And the wind speaks a comforting voice,
Guiding me to her arms
Mother, I’m alright

It took the birth of sin to snake-rattle the mind
Before a blow to the head by the gavel of time
To wake up
Won’t you wake up?
When did the walking apes decide that nuclear war
Was the only solution for them keeping the score?
Just wake up
Can’t you wake up?

(You do know this is just a simulation, don’t you?)

Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?
Tell me a lie in a beautiful way
I believe in answers, just not today

    These kids are still thinking that there's going to be a WW3 😂

  61. Magistral Gold

  62. Riley Nold

    No items. Fox only. Final Destination.

  63. Phuha

    Jangan pernah melupakan Sejarah

  64. Zack Wells

    I was gonna die if Hillary and Kim Jong Un would be controlled by Trump

    The Q

    also present were ping, putin and merkle, this is a-political, its obvious the real puppet master would be death.

  65. Benjamin Hervey

    That drum intro tho...

    The Rev is very proud of you dudes

  66. M Bayrak

    I like the idea of everything going back to the beginning. The whole album is mankind and it's lost sides and starting with the roots of our very existence was a great Idea

  67. fiona theoboldt

    Tell me your lie in a beautiful way. I believe in answers, just not today.

  68. Raven/Lost In The Upside Down

    This is my first time seeing the video..And already, I understand the deep meaning behind it..Humans live just to die, and extinguish each other, all for the enjoyment and satisfaction of other humans, destroying all in our path, until there's only dust and decay left..

  69. august 223

    I can feel the guitar solo more then the actual lyrics gates can speak with a guitar

  75. Samuel Kim

    just as i expected, they all turn into puppets

  76. david tremblay

    ppl are braindead so hard even with internet ppl cant still wake up ..sad but true

  77. Mystic Wryyy

    People be talking about the Elite/Government grip of power towards others, When its actually talking about the cruelty of humanity and how we repeat the same mistakes.

  78. TELİFİM MEDİA

    SUPERRR

  79. Gábor Kiss

    At 4:00 is a good representation how officers were most of the time behind the frontlines, chugging away merrily at booze, while privates went out to die.

    And when bombs began to fall at the field of poppies, that means (to me) not respecting the casualties of WW1...instead, starting a WW again.

  80. tanner fraser

    Who’s still coming back to this in December 2019

    Dam Trillo

    Me and it's still as shit as the first time I listened to it

    Titanium Rain

    Alejandro Hernandez Toribio

    Saint of FaTe thank you

  84. AF TORI

    The rev better then him

  85. King Pep

    A prophetical song, truth hidden in plain sight....

  86. Andrew Volchanski

    Ого.

  87. Cornelius Singgih

    Director: Sasori

  88. Toby Adam

    I watched this video for the first time about 2 minutes after it was released. One of my favourite songs ever

  89. John Sutton

    I was somewhat disappointed by this album, but man if this song isn't the exception. Absolutely amazing from start to finish. A7X is the only modern band whose songs could actually be considered a true composition.

  90. johnny bob

    Even tho it's Brooks not the Rev I still love the drumming in this song

  91. Joe DiMaggio

    His voice reminds me of Tobias sammet of edguy/avantasia in this song. Neat.

  92. Randi Whe

    ''Hope my wheels don’t abandon me now.."
    my fav' lyric ever

  93. Szajnuś .mp4

    All the commenters. Just shut up. Shut up and listen to this masterpiece.

  94. W Kumsao

    The months of dead.
    Miss you the REV
