Avenged Sevenfold - Bat Country

"He who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man"

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.
I try to drive all through the night,
The heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to stay, the sand is singing deathless words to me.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

As I adjust to my new sights the rarely tired lights will take me to new heights.
My hand is on the trigger I'm ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it but everything's all right.
Mental fiction follow me; show me what it's like to be set free.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

So sorry you're not here, I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.
These eyes won't see the same, after I flip today.

(guitar solo)

Sometimes I don't know why we'd rather live than die,
We look up towards the sky for answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by,
Don't want your absolution cause I can't make it right.
I'll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.
I've known it from the start all these good ideas will tear your brain apart.
Scared but you can follow me I'm too weird to live but much too rare to die.

"Bat Country" is a single by the American metal band Avenged Sevenfold from their 2005 album, City of Evil. The song's main influence comes from Hunter S. Thompson's 1971 novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and the title itself also comes from a line from the book in which Raoul Duke, the alter-ego pseudonym of Thompson himself, is on his way to Las Vegas while being affected by various drugs, and thus hallucinates, seeing huge bats and manta rays in the sky. With this, he screams to his companion, Dr. Gonzo, "We can't stop here. This is bat country." The song has been used in several video games including EA Sports' NHL 06, Madden NFL 06, SSX on Tour and Saints Row 2. It also had a short cameo in Big Momma's House 2. The song is featured on the soundtrack to the extreme mountain bike film New World Disorder 7: Flying High Again. The song appeared on an episode of the FOX TV series Bones entitled "The Superhero in the Alley" Avenged Sevenfold won 'Best New Artist' at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards for "Bat Country". The following quote is frequently referred twice throughout the song (at the beginning and the bridge before the last chorus) and is shown at the beginning of the music video. "He who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man." - Dr. Johnson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9UdiLRxu5k
