Hail to the King3
Hail to the King is the second of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. This song is a homage to AC/DC, especially in the beginning, as made apparent by the band when describing the inspiration for the album.

LyricsEdit

Watch your tounge or have it cut from your head

Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid

Children roam the streets now orphans of war

Bodies hanging in the streets to adore

Royal flames will carve the path in chaos

Bringing daylight to the night

Death is riding into town with armor

They've come to take all your rights

Hail to the King, Hail to the One

Kneel to the Crown, Stand in the Sun

Hail to the King (hail, hail, hail)

Blood is spilled while holding keys to the throne

Born again, but it's too late to atone

No mercy from the edge of the blade

Dare escape and learn the price to be paid

Let the water throw it's shades of red now

Arrows black out all the light

Death is riding into town with armor

They've come to grant you your rights

Hail to the King, Hail to the One

Kneel to the Crown, Stand in the Sun

Hail to the King (hail, hail, hail)

There's a taste of fear (hail, hail, hail)

When the henchmen call (hail, hail, hail)

Iron fist to tame them (hail, hail, hail)

Iron fist to claim it all (hail, hail, hail)

Hail to the King, Hail to the One

Kneel to the Crown, Stand in the Sun

Hail to the King, Hail to the One

Kneel to the Crown, Stand in the Sun

Hail to the King (hail, hail, hail)
