Waking the Fallen2

Unholy Confessions is Avenged Sevenfold's second song off of their 2003 album, Waking the Fallen. It is heavily accredited with giving Avenged Sevenfold their first taste of mainstream exposure, as the song was featured on MTV and MTV2 multiple times. This song also happens to be the most played live song, with setlist.fm stating they've played it over 680 times.

A music video was released consisting of an edited concert and fan activity. Footage of the band playing Unholy Confessions and their fans were shown in the video. It was also stated, in a special interview done for the ten year anniversary of Waking the Fallen (Waking the Fallen: Resurrected), that at the live concert they filmed to create the music video, they had to play the song twice to get the necessary footage. In honor of the ten year anniversary, Avenged Sevenfold also released the original cut of the first video they had made for Unholy Confessions, which depicted each member playing the song in an "abandoned warehouse" setting. This was also the first official music video that Johnny Christ appeared in.

LyricsEdit

I'll try

She said as she walked away

Try not to lose you

Two vibrant hearts could change

Nothing tears the being more than deception

Unmasked fear

I'll be here waiting, tested and secure

Nothing hurts my world

Just affects the ones around me

When sins deep in my blood

You'll be the one to fall

I wish I could be the one

The one who won't care at all

But being the one on the stand

I know the way to go, no one's guiding me

When time soaked with blood turns its back

I know it's hard to fall

Confided in me was your heart

I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me.

Nothing will last in this life

Our time is spent constructing

Now you're perfecting a world... meant to sin

Constrict your hands around me

Squeeze till I cannot breathe

This air tastes dead inside me

Contribute to our plague

Break all your promises

Tear down this steadfast wall

Restraints are useless here

Tasting salvation's near

Nothing hurts my world

Just affects the ones around me

When sin's deep in my blood

You'll be the one to fall

I wish I could be the one

The one who won't care at all

But being the one on the stand

I know the way to go, no one's guiding me

When time soaked with blood turns its back

I know it's hard to fall

Confided in me was your heart

I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me
