Strength of the World is the ninth of eleven tracks on Avenged Sevenfold's 2005 album, City of Evil.  


My story starts the day they said "she can't be found"

The news so dark, heart stopped, I stood silent without a sound

It's over, she's finished, mother lies with my father and sister too

Cold-blooded, they suffered, shot down by the outlaws after you

Sorrow swallows my screams

Strength of the world, is on my shoulders

Strength of the world, is on my side

Strength of the world, the one true beholder

Ice in my veins, for those who've died

I've seen my family fade away, you've taken my whole life

There's nothing left to say

Avenge the dead kill all who cross me in my path

Suicidal, I never planned on coming back

I want it, I need it, revenge is dripping from my teeth

Need nothin', to feel power, and bring the killers to their knees

Nothin' ta lose vengeance ta gain (you know I'll never be the same)

So taste my breath I'm close behind you (so desperate on your final day)

Sorrow swallows my screams

Sitting in silence with heaven above me I prayed every night by their graves

While I search for closure I feel it no longer

I can't turn my cheek away, I stand before you; I'll sin when I have to

But now I leave your side, to avenge my family's pride

So far forever alone, a greater punishment on me has been imposed

A killer falling from the light, I'll miss my family, I'll never be alright
