      About "Afterlife"

      Lyrics for Avenged Sevenfold - "Afterlife"

      Like walking into a dream, so unlike what you've seen
      so unsure but it seems, 'cause we've been waiting for you
      Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste
      of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway

      I see a distant light, but girl this can't be right
      Such a surreal place to see so how did this come to be
      Arrived too early

      And when I think of all the places I just don't belong
      I've come to grips with life and realize this is going too far

      I don't belong here, we gotta move on dear escape from this afterlife

      'Cause this time I'm right to move on and on, far away from here

      A place of hope and no pain, perfect skies with no rain
      Can leave this place but refrain, 'cause we've been waiting for you
      Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste
      of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway

      This peace on earth's not right (with my back against the wall)
      No pain or sign of time (I'm much too young to fall)
      So out of place don't wanna stay, I feel wrong and that's my sign
      I've made up my mind

      Give me your hand but realize I just wanna say goodbye
      Please understand I have to leave and carry on my own life

      I don't belong here, I gotta move on dear escape from this afterlife
      'Cause this time I'm right to move on and on, far away from here
      Got nothing against you and surely I'll miss you
      This place full of peace and light, and I'd hope you might
      take me back inside when the time is right

      Loved ones back home all crying 'cause they're already missing me
      I pray by the grace of God that there's somebody listening
      Give me a chance to be that person I wanna be
      (I am unbroken; I'm choking on this ecstasy)
      Oh Lord I'll try so hard but you gotta let go of me
      (Unbreak me, unchain me, I need another chance to live)

      I don't belong here, I gotta move on dear escape from this afterlife
      'Cause this time I'm right to move on and on, far away from here
      Got nothing against you and surely I'll miss you
      This place full of peace and light, and I'd hope you might
      take me back inside when the time is right
