Avenged Sevenfold - Burn It Down

Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I'm here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Don"t need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn ya down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (See it in my eyes)
Now I can understand
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Whoa, yeah!

You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breathe
A crutch for you that won't always be there
Hide in the dark another day
The fear in you is here to stay
So keep the fuck away from me and learn to trust the words I say

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn ya down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes)
(Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand
Put faith in you for the last time
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Huh! Yeah, yeah!

Running from me before I tear you down (Be afraid)
You chose the wrong side (It feels so right)
I won't help you, let you run away (Despise what you say - Chorus vocalizing)
Run towards the light exposing your soul (We won't be there by your side - Chorus vocalizing)
Salvation's dying (Somebody's crying)
We're all gone in the end (Chorus vocalizing)
Sweet child we'll miss you
Whoa, so far away, far away

(Guitar solo)

I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes - Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand (Put faith in you for the last time)
It's sorrow that feeds your lies

Falling away
Can't buy back time
Burn it down anyways

"Burn It Down" is the 2nd track on the album City of Evil, by Avenged Sevenfold. As opposed to their other released videos from City of Evil, such as "Bat Country" which features a performance as well as a scenario running with the song, "Burn It Down" simply features the bands live performance of the song, however the audio itself is not live but the album track synced over the live video with the exceptions of the first and last few seconds. The song features a mix of guitar technique highlighted by the dueling arpeggios at the beginning of the song and the famous heavy metal technique the gallop in the first verse. The song is lyrically taking perspective from someone who has been betrayed time and time again, and will take no more ("Don't need you fuck camaraderie") and vows revenge ("Hatred fuels my blood") Burn It Down was also featured in the Saw III soundtrack.
