Heretic Lyrics


As they search for blood
All eyes descend on one
Honest man in chains
But that don’t matter anyway
My judgement day

My flesh will feed the demon
No trial, no case for reason
I've been chosen to pay with my life
Mad men define what mad is
Turning witches and saints to ashes
Rising masses marching to find Heretic blood.

Impose your will on me
'Til fire sets me free
The flames of hell burn bright
My fate decided by their lies
Final demise

My flesh will feed the demon
No trial, no case for reason
I've been chosen to pay with my life
Mad men define what mad is
Turning witches and saints to ashes
Rising masses marching to find heretic
Heretic blood

Please, don’t leave me
Please, don’t leave me like this
I’ve walked a fragile line and I’ve fallen down
Please, don’t leave me

My flesh will feed the demon now
No trial, no case for reason
I've been chosen to pay with my life
Mad men define what mad is
Turning witches and saints to ashes
Rising masses marching to find heretic
Heretic blood

Heretic
  • This was the first song that Avenged Sevenfold wrote for Hail to the King, hence it being a throwback to band's traditional sound. Guitarist Synyster Gates told MusicRadar.com : "It's a little progressive, but we wanted to maintain some space in the arrangement so the drums could shine and the riffs and vocals could breathe."

    He added: "This is a lot of guitar, though, some big moments. If you're not the biggest groove fan – and it you're not, you should be – there's still a progressive element. So it's a mix, this song, and it worked out really well."
  • Vocalist M. Shadows is singing here about religious fanaticism and witch hunts. He explained to Kerrang! magazine: "To me, this is about the Salem Witch Trials. It's about the West Memphis Three. It's about being put in jail for life for the clothes you wear and because you have long hair. And it's all based on religion and fantasy, when no-one can just look at the facts for what they are, because they're completely clouded by their love of their religious beliefs. That song is a step back to say, 'You don't have to be at someone's door, ready to burn them without giving them a chance to explain themselves."
