Heretic is the seventh of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. This song is an homage to 1970's rock and metal, specifically Iron Maiden, and even more specifically the songs "Judgement Day", "In the Flames of Hell", "Witches", and "Saints."  

LyricsEdit

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 here 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
