Lyrics

Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off
Like me motherfucker, you've been at it for too long
While you feed off others insecurities
You stand in front of me and bite the hand that feeds

(Self-righteousness is wearing thin)
Lies inside your head your best friend
(Heart bleeds but not for fellow man)
Broken glass, your fake reflection

Telling them it's all for something real
Don't respect the words you're speaking
Gone too far, acclaim!!

So how does it feel to know that someones kid in the heart of America
Has blood on their hands, fighting to defend your rights
So you can maintain the lifestyle that insults his family's existence
Well, where I'm from we have a special salute we aim high in the air
Towards all those pompous assholes who spend their days pointing fingers

Fuck you

Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off
Like the heartbeat of this country when antagonized too long
I'll be damned if you count me in as part of your generous hypocrisy
Collecting enemies

(Tabloid gossip queen, worthless man)
There's no need for us to bury you
(Selfish agenda, once again)
Right this way, you've dug your own grave

Telling them it's all for something real
Don't respect the words you're speaking
Gone too far, acclaim!

All the way from the east to the west
We've got this high society looking down on this very foundation
Constantly reminding us that
our actions are the cause of all their problems
Pointing the fingers in every direction
Blaming their own nation for who wins elections
They've never contributed a fucking thing
to the country they love to criticize

Excuse the obscene, ignore the untrue
Depictions we see, try and get through
Admitting mistakes can't hurt
I'm not the last but I sure ain't the first

Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off

(Self-righteousness is wearing thin)
Lies inside your head your best friend
(Heart bleeds but not for fellow man)
Broken glass, your fake reflection

Telling them it's all for something real
Don't respect these words you speaking
Gone too far, acclaim.

    Error in the lyrics:
    "I've had enough it's time for something real"
    Correct lyrics:
    "I've had enough it's all for something real"
    No big deal, but they are my favorite band.

    And also instead of "It's time for something real" the lyrics are "It's all for something real".

    This is an amazing song. But unfortunatly some lyrics are still incorrect.
    Instead of "damn lord got queen" the correct lyrics are "Tabloid gossip queen". In my opinion this song is not political at all. Avenged Sevenfold is sending a message to all the military protesters and anti-war groups. We fight for their right to protest us. If it was not for us we would not be the great country that we are.

    OOOHHHRRRAAHHH!!!!!!
