This Means War is the fourth of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. The riffs of this song are often criticized for being similar to Metallica, specifically the song Sad But True. Bob Flynn, vocalist for Machine Head, called it out for being an obvious ripoff.  

LyricsEdit

Hide my face again, harbor in the shadows

Feel this weight of sin hammering away

Die, with the guilt of a thousand AWOL soldiers 

Die, watch the scythe usher me astray

I can't go on this way

Not as I am today

The ugly side of me is strong

Take aim, a loaded gun

Pull back on all who run

A coward's truth inside the wrong

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

Lash your tongue of pain, carry me to nowhere

Mental holocaust, battle never ends

Lie! Mask the pain, of a child who's forsaken 

Lie! To myself, praise the new regime

I left me long ago, reasons you'll never know

No one to miss me when I'm gone, with no more words to say

No argument to stay, another post I don't belong

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

No home to call my own

No finding someone new

No one to break the fall

No one to see me through

No name to carry on

No promise for today

No one to hear the call

No tattered flag to raise

Walk the razor's edge, cut into madness

Question all you trust, buy into the fear

I see the man ripping at my soul now 

I, I know the man, I know him all too well

There's nothing here for free

Lost who I want to be

My serpent bloood can strike the cold

On any given day

I'll take it all away

Another thought I can't conotrol

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War

This Means War
