Hail to the King2

Shepherd of Fire is the first of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. The song brings to mind classic rock/metal bands, like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

LyricsEdit

Let's take a moment and break the ice

So my intentions are known

See, I have pity in watching you suffer

I know the feeling of being damned alone

I got a story book of my own

Don't you see I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs

(And you know it's right)

I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak

Know me by name, Shepherd of Fire!

Well, I can promise you paradise

No need to serve on your knees

And when you're lost in the darkest of hours

Take a moment and tell me who you see

Won't tell you not to be

Now you know I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs

(And you know it's right)

I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak

Know me by name, Shepherd of Fire!

Disciple of the cross and the champion in suffering. Immerse yourself into the kingdom of redemption.  Pardon your mind from the chains of the divine. Make way the Shepherd of Fire.

Through the ages of time

I've been known for my hate

But I'm a dealer of simple choices

For me it's never too late

I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs

(And you know it's right)

I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak

I am your wrath, I am your guilt, I am your lust

(And you know it's right)

I am your law, I am your stall, I am your trust

Know me by name, Shepherd of Fire!
