Avenged Sevenfold Lyrics

Shepherd Of Fire Lyrics
Lets take a moment and break the ice
So my intentions are known
See I pity in watching you suffer
I know the feeling of feeling of being damned alone
I have a storybook of my own

Don't you see I am your pride
Agent of will
Bearer of needs
And you know what's right
I am your war
I'm in strong
Aiming the weak
Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Well I can promise you paradise
No need to serve on your knees
And when you're lost in the darkest of hours
Take a moment and tell me who you see
Wont tell ya who not to be

Now you know I am your pride
Agent of will
Bearer of needs
And you know what's right
I am your war
I'm in strong
Aimin the weak
Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Deciple of the cross and champion of the suffering
Emerse yourself in the kingdom of redemption
Pardon your mind through the chains of the divine
Make way for the shepherd of fire

Through the ages of time
I've been known for my hate
But I'm a dealer of sinful choices
For me it's never too late

I am your pride
Agent of will
Bearer of needs
And you know what's right
I am your war
I'm in strong
Aimin the weak
Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

I am your wrath
I am your guilt
I am your lust
And you know it's right
I am your love
I am your stall
I am your trust

Know me by name
Shepherd of fire

Shepherd Of Fire Info:

Shepherd Of Fire is the opening song of Hail to the King, Avenged Sevenfold's sixth studio album. The noise at the beginning of the song that sounds like rain is in fact fire.

It was intentionally written as an intro track. Guitarist Synyster Gates told MusicRadar.com: "The idea was that the arrangement would evoke a sense of imagery with the tribal yet primordial drums. It seemed to resonate from Hell almost. It's something of an apocalyptic call to arms."

"I love the arrangement," he added. "We wanted to set up the album and foreshadow what was to come, being that it's a groove-based, riff-oriented record. We haven't really done Zeppelin-style or Sabbath-like riffs before, so this is our version of an album that's along those lines."

Lead vocalist M. Shadows told Kerrang! magazine: "If you just listen to the music, it feels like you've been taken down to Hell. From the riffs, to the bells ringing, to the horns, to the drumbeat, it feels like you're being dragged down."

He added: "It's very like 'Sympathy For The Devil,' in that there's a silver-tongued Devil speaking to you. He's not all about fire and brimstone; he's luring you down and telling you he can make your life better than the guy up above. There's a temptation vibe to it, with pure chaos going on behind it."

This song is featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops II: Apocalypse (The game's fourth and final downloadable content pack). The band previously contributed "Not Ready to Die" and "Carry On" to Call of Duty.
