Avenged Sevenfold - Tonight The World Dies Lyrics




Lost the meaning of our stay
Learn to live another day
Doubt the choices that we've made
I know that we can't hide our shame
It's only in disguise

Drowning in our own debris
Fool our thoughts as though we're free
Close our eyes so we can see
The depth of all we mean to be
If only in my eyes

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
In a way

So try and love me while you can
And take the time to understand
As long as I can touch your face
You know I'll never leave this place
If only in my mind

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
But I seem to find no better ways
To consciously pretend

Silence all I want to say
With tendencies to run away
I'll run away
With you tonight
Launder all my sins away
And just like that mistakes are made
You know
Tonight the world dies

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
But I seem to find no better ways
To consciously pretend

    CLost the meaning of our Emstay
    CLearn to live another Emday
    CDoubt the choices that we'veEm made
    I know that we can't Amhide our shame
    It's only in disgGuise



    CDrowning in our own deEmbris

  36. Zach Horrocks

    This song has put me at peace probably more than any other....rip rev

  37. Hazim Hafiz

    Greatest fucking song

  38. chris Castro

    There's still no good cover of this song on youtube. That really shows how crazy this vocal performance is, unmatchable. Underrated to say the least

  39. jOyypheTt AlmenDrAz

    it hits a alot....

  40. Laloo Cable

    Why am I discovering this song now???? :O
    WOW This guy and His Voice is just so amazing!!!

  41. Wilker Oliveira

    Alguém aqui sabe o nome do negócio que o Synister Gates usa no dedo pra fazer o som melódico do começo dessa música? Eu já vi alguns guitarristas usando, é tipo um cano de vidro

    foREVer
    Saw the Rev so I thought I would say it.
    Like if you think so

  47. Ryan Finley

    The world died when The Rev Died

  48. Jetpack Blues

    I'm sorry, but this is waaayyy too similar to Space Oddity for me.
    Still a good song though.

  49. Sebastian Tonini

    Matt fucking Shadows people. Chills.

  50. NeXT HELLRAISER

    Its sad that this song didn't get the recognition it deserved. I would easily say this song is the best on the album. I'm making this statement on sound alone, just because Fiction and So Far Away will have a special place in my heart. This song is my favorite Avenged Sevenfold song by far but Sounding The Seventh Trumpet is my favorite album for sure.

    Up late tonight for finals this week (yay for being a pre-med). People in the comments have already pointed out how much of an underrated song this is...and it truly is. The lyrics, the emotion, the sound of Shadows voice when he belts out is just absolutely amazing. I really wish they would play this song live.
