Doing Time is the third of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. M. Shadows sings with an Axl Rose-esque swagger here and the band follows suit, mining Guns N' Roses' bluesy hard rock boogie.  

LyricsEdit

The lives of some men

If walls can taught to spill the lies

We'll see the world through the devil's eyes

I maintain an addiction

Been known to take it too high

I got an inch with a loaded hair trigger

And a one way ticket to fly

When there's no writing on the wall

I see the lifeless devil start to crawl

And I don't need no lessons

After all, everybody's Doing their Time

Caught your eye in the corner

Don’t you look at me wrong

Fucked up and thrown into the gutter

Gotta fix what don’t belong

I see the writing on the wall

I see the lifeless devil start to crawl

And I don't need no lessons

After all, everybody's Doing their Time

That's just a price to play

So tell me what you like

Gotta hand on the kerosene match tonight, right

Had enough of opinions

I got enough on my mind

Sell your soul for approval and a dollar

Got a pretty little body to grind

I see your number on the wall

I see the lifeless devils start to crawl

I don't need no lessons

Watch the fall

You lost my attention

After all, everybody's Doing their Time, Time
