Turn the Other Way is the second of thirteen tracks on Avenged Sevenfold's 2001 debut album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet.


Slit my wrists, take away the pain

Slit my throat, there's no one to blame

Lost in the fields of confusion

Restless nights, they're not far away

I came here for something and I'm not turning back

A calm piece of mind but you still hold my keys

Keeping my fate deep within your threshold

Petty inconvenience but it means the world to me

You have the power, to set me free

Caught in your grasp, how?

Just let me be, give me control out

Out of these depths

A fiery hell, I pray for death

I've been the wrong one time and time again

Now I'm on my knees, forgive me please

Tore out my heart and handed to me on a silver platter

Sew up the hole, emptiness in the place of compassion

You made me this way

I am the product of your creation

Sew up the hole, and now, look the other way

Now you've turned your back on me

You've turned away from me

The future's much too far away to see

I hope you learn the truth

Not the way things were meant to be with me and you
