Avenged Sevenfold - The Wicked End Lyrics




Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel
The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's words rang so true
Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, it's all through
Don't kill the messenger cause
As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery

Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

We've grown into the numbers six hundred sixty six
War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled
Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight
Eclipse and heaven shall fall
Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery

Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
Dust the apple off, savor each bite
And deep inside you know Adam was right
Lust and power, indulgence, no fear
Left with his sins, how does this end?
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

As the prophets shed the light on what's to come the crowds did gather
Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming
Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms
These will be our final days and I can't let go

Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying
Flesh is tearing, some still fighting
In this world of misery

Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
Feel sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in our own tears
A stab in the dark but it wounded our will
Dust the apple off, savor each bite
And deep inside you know Adam was right
Lust and power, indulgence, no fear
Left with his sins, how does this end?
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

  21. Ja oder Nein

    Incase anyone doesn’t know, this song is about the rise and fall of the Anti-Christ in the book of Revelation from the Bible. Important to note the second coming of the Messiah (Jesus) during the breakdown.

  22. Johnny Azulay

    Jesus! I hate this font!!

  23. BlowItUpYourFarkHole

    A7x: In this life of misery-ay-ay-ay

  24. Thomas Bulford

    Man's coming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel
    The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's "word" rang so true
    Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, its all through
    Don't kill the messenger girl
    As if we haven't swam enough tin this life of misery
    Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
    Fell sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
    Swallowed lies and swam in your own tears
    A stab in the dark and it wounded our will
    We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time
    We've grown into numbers six hundred sixty six
    War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled
    Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight
    Eclipse and heaven shall fall
    Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery
    Dust the apple off, savor each bite
    And deep inside you know Adam was right
    Lust and power, indulgence, no fear
    Left with is sins, how does this end?
    We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time
    As the prophets shed the light on what's to come the crowds did gather
    Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming
    Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms
    These will be our final days and I can't let go
    Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying
    Flesh is tearing, some still fighting
    In this world of misery
    Voice your prophecy, shed us some light
    Fell sorrow for mankind's chance to survive
    Swallowed lies and swam in your own tears
    A stab in the dark and it wounded our will
    We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

  30. FroffNix

    This song is really strange, but somehow in a good way. Great song

  31. Owly Winds

    I need this music in my dying days

  32. Braden Vassov

    i wish johhny christ had more bass lines like this intro or the breakdown in blinded in chains

  33. SilverSilva75

    The guitar solo from this song along with the ones in M.I.A. and Seize the Day are the best in this album.

  34. Kurtis Pittman

    I wouldnt say this song is underrated, but out of the songs on this album, yes its probably regarded in the bottom 5 songs on here, but really, all the songs on this album are held somewhere in a7x's top 50 best songs ever (which 50 aint a bad spot considering how many songs they have)

  35. Manga Slime

    Omg this best song I’ve heard so far in life lol

  36. Marco Mendoza

    I almost have all the albums

  37. medium doinks

    His voice is the most beautiful thing I've heard.

  38. green Nyellow

    2018, still listening...

  39. anonymous user

    Should've been in suicide squad

  40. Aaron Smith

    Dude that solo holy hell

  41. Tool 123

  43. Raging_Godzilla

    4:10 - 4:37 give me chills at every time man

    don't let me down

    Make that 3:48 to 4:37

  44. unbound250

    Is it just me or can it be hard to understand what Matt is saying sometimes. Not necessarily a bad thing, considering the actual wording in the songs are just very unique and different, just hard to sing a long with.

  45. Matthew Witherspoon

    Rosen Miryanov

    Thanks I can't read this shitty font :)

  46. Bruno Montoya

    2:12 surbibe????

    Titas Gapševičius

    Bruno Montoya Font issues. It's spelled Survive, don't worry. The B is a bit different.

  47. ATG IMM

    What is this song about?

  48. Sarp Daltaban

    it is a song which is a combination of their past and current styles. Solo is the most impressive part of the song, which has a background of their current style. Therefore, underrating may be caused by their past style performed start of the song <3 A7X

  49. Thallanar Rabidtooth

    At 0:41 I love how the drums match the vibrato of M. Shadow's voice in the end of saying "Misery". It makes it sound much stronger and perfectly constructed.

  50. A7XTributes

    I love the intro to this song its fucking amazing

  51. Mason

    Right now, I’m listening to every A7X album (and song), and I hate to say it, but (so far) I am only liking Waking the Fallen (the song, not the album), and I Wont See You Tonight Part I and II. I did listen to HTTK though, and I LOVED it, so there’s a start.

  52. Creek da sneak

    These will be our final days and I can't let gooo

  53. Martin

    This song is without contest the most deep and elaborated from avenged!

  54. Tragic Disaster

    5:10 gets me every time I listened to it

  55. Top Tips

    When I listen to the song, I hear 'Don't kill the messenger 'cause,' Anyone else hearing it?

  56. Andrei Adonis

    guys i know the instrumental is very good but the lyrics are satanic

    Chris Clark

    Andrei Adonis they aren't satanic, they depict the end of days on earth.

    Brandon Driver

    And what's so wrong with satanic lyrics anyway?

  57. UP DOWN & AROUND

    that interlude is dope

  58. Adit Official

    03:00 top guitar

  59. Josh Cohen

    You can tell where "A Little Piece of Heaven" and "Acid Rain" got their influence..

  60. Dale Burroughs Guitar 2nd

    The intro reminds me of jimmy.

  61. Vasilisya

    We've grown into the numbers six hundred sixty six

  62. no more corn!

    I got this as my ringtone

  63. Oussama Berrada

    "In my life of misery" is one of the most orgasmic lines I've ever heard due to the way M. performs it. PERFECT

  64. jaFEWAEF bFAEWFEWA

    When avenged sevenfold quoted the bible. EPIC in its ENTIRETY!

  65. TheSoakster

    3:49 reminds me of a Tim Burton movie

  66. Macktastic7

    I've been listening to these guys since high school but I honestly know nothing about them as individuals. I know several of their songs hold religious themes, is there a story behind that? Any die-hards care to fill me in?

    Brandon Crawford

    Some of their songs do hold biblical messages, certain themes from the bible. Their name alone comes from the first murder of Abel. They are not a christian band however. Taken from an interview with Current from Chicago, Matt says, "Absolutely not. I don’t believe in those things. (laughs) I try not to get into that because a lot of our fans are Christians and a lot aren’t. I have my own beliefs, but I don’t believe in any kind of religion that we have nowadays. But we’re definitely not a Christian band." I hope that helps.

    Thallanar Rabidtooth

    Think of it this way, Religion (especially Christianity and the Bible) is a good resource for writing lyrics and stories for music, I love that Avenged Sevenfold used such a creative work of literature for their music.

  67. Sawyer Hostetler

    Does anyone else see how Biblical these guys are or is it just me?

    Draguir

    Sawyer Hostetler yeah all the album *city of evil* is biblical XD

    Kurt Shirvinski

    Its ironic cause most of them claim to be Atheists and Agnostic

    Jacob.Calloway

    I thought they just claimed to not be a Christian band. They were born and raised to catholic parents and attended the same high school which was also Catholic. So I’ve heard tho.

    Galaxy Skull Artist

    It kind of bothers me sometimes...

    H.R.

    they read The Bible to find inspirations for their songs, but Avenged itself is not a religious band

  68. jose zapata

    In my opinion the best syn solo

  69. Synaxe

    Perfect song for Attack on Titan

  70. Einars Miglans

    Most underrated song of a7x

  71. Jacob.Calloway

    Probably my favorite chorus.

  72. Matthew Austin

    LET'S SEE HYPE FOR THIS SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. IR0N PUP

    From 4:37 to 5:29, that part gets to me the most. I play it over and over and think to myself about it

  74. James Luna

    best matt vocals ever 5:18

  75. Horror and Halloween 101

    The intro kinda sounds like the bass version of the Twilight Zone intro. Lol.

  76. XBlackDragon 3

    Love it doh

  77. jaFEWAEF bFAEWFEWA

    Man as a christian it amazes me how they talk about biblical things. if only they would stay on course. their music now is a not good. they got to get back to the basics. this stuff is gold!

  78. Rage Runner

    DONT KILL THE MASSIVE CHICKEN 0:36

  79. ??? 3

    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) yeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaa

  80. BilboDragons

    3:30 I'm just picturing a man standing on a cliff looking over mass destruction and realizing his planet is destroyed

    Evan Fowler

    BilboDragons I picture something more depressing

    My autism is exacerbated saying this, but

    @Evan Fowler edge lord

  81. Marciano Webster

    This is probably THEE best song that I have ever heard by Avenged Sevenfold(A7X)!!

  82. QuadThreat Gaming

    People who say Avenged Sevenfold isn't metal, they never listen deeper into their albums. This is strait up Metallica right here.

    Kirbstopher

    QuadThreat Gaming I like Avenged Sevenfold, but I'm not much of a Metallica fan. a lot of it is samey. I liked for whom the bell tolls though. and a few more. I couldn't listen to a full Metallica album, as I could with Avenged SF.

  83. Rejoto

    nice dual guitar

  84. Juri Haugland

    One of their best songs so far, no doubt! Impossible to get sick of, every detail of the song is just perfect, is my opinion. :D

  85. John Star

    you cant tell me it isnt castlevania

  86. LiveFreeOrDie

    Best A7X song with the REV hands down

  87. Mr.masterbator activator The third

    I made this song thank me and mr conservative jerk off

  88. Nathan Couch

    I hope they take after metallic and make at least one more record that sounds like what we feel in love with.

  89. NoMortal M

    if you put a very big gun to my head, and forced me to pick... this is their best song... aside from every other masterpiece that they have blessed us with. and THAT... is my two cents. good day sir, I said good day...

  90. Absolution

    hillary clinton becomes president
    war breaks out
    nucleair bombs fall
    mad max intro starts
    this song starts

    (dont take me too serious)

    Blood Letter

    Phoenix BlazeX Lol it would've been true

    The Chief Kinney

    And before war breaks out, The Stage plays.

    JaguarFacedMan

    Phoenix BlazeX right when it says "voice your prophecies shed us some light" they show Alex Jones freaking out and ranting while wearing a tin foil hat.

    I Support Fanart

    Phoenix BlazeX 3...2...1... And there's the mental picture

    Tyler Wireman

    @JaguarFacedMan Alex Jones is such a threat to the mainstream news they all got together and censored him off youtube, Facebook, Twitter wasn't going to but they got talked into it..oh well they'll never take down infowars website..

  91. luke badasd

    the rev sucks ass

    Mr Artyomych

    Vito DiGiovanni Dude, Im backing you up! I love the Rev. No one can replace him.

    Vito DiGiovanni

    Mass Hysteria sorry that was my friend who said that

    sadickhead

    Mr.masterbator activator The third

    Sup syn gates my bro how long were these dip shits cursing at you fuck you faget don't curse at mr conservative jerk off

  93. Rockstar117X

    Im here for the fallen

  94. Type

    WE HAVE GROWN INTO THE NUMBERS, SIX HUNDRED SIXTY SIX!

  95. DaddyIssues007

    Why 3:53 sounding like some music from Edward Scissor ?

  96. Christopher Morgan

    Ive never understood why so many people talk shit about this album. Every song on this album is fucking epic, and this is my second favorite one on the album after Sidewinder.
