"This gun has stopped time in its tracks, has altered the course of our fate. Destiny is shattered and timeless. Closed eyes feel the cold winds embrace."
-Avenged Sevenfold


Don't deny the feeling within.
Let it burn its way through the skin.

Flint and steel can char to the bone.
Scraping away like pumice stone.
Concrete sounds calling me away.
Voices in my head that want to play.

Snapped my neck like a mouse in a trap.
A boom of doom calls a bleeding mishap.
Tension tears my soul to shreds.
Rafting a river that's running red.

Murder the light so you can dance with the night.
Embrace the feeling of the venomous bite.
Gouge out your eyes so you can't witness the sight.
Thoughts of love and peace are trite.

Don't deny the feeling within.
Let it burn its way through the skin.

Hold these dying emotions dear.
Melt away with the passing years.
Seduce my heart with skeletal lies.
Careening down to where light dies.

A chance of hope is less than real.
Neurotic thoughts are hard to heal.
A hollow shell does not appeal.
Another side effect of flint and steel.

Murder the light so you can dance with the night.
Embrace the feeling of the venomous bite.
Gouge out your eyes so you can't witness the sight.
Thoughts of love and peace are trite.

Wash down the taste of hate.
The fires of sin cannot create.
Cauterize my life today.
You cannot speak when there's nothing to say.

A door to darkness draws me in.
Apocalypse will soon begin.
Trying to start a Devil's deal.
Another side effect of flint and steel.

Murder the light so you can dance with the night.
Embrace the feeling of the venomous bite.
Gouge out your eyes so you can't witness the sight.
Thoughts of love and peace are trite.

Don't deny the feeling within.
Let it burn its way through the skin.
Life can sometimes seem unreal
When you have a mentality of flint and steel.
