Avenged Sevenfold

Shepherd of Fire

Verse 1

Let's take a moment and break the ice
So my intentions are known
See I have pity in watching you suffer
I know the feeling of being damned alone
I've got a storybook of my own

Chorus

Don't you see I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs
[And you know it's right]
I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak
Know me by name, shepherd of fire

Verse 2

Well I can promise you paradise
No need to serve on your knees
And when you're lost in the darkest of hours
Take a moment and tell me who you see
Won't tell you who not to be

Chorus

Now you know I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs
[And you know it's right]
I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak
Know me by name, shepherd of fire

Bridge

[|Disciple of the cross and champion in suffering|]
[|Immerse yourself into the kingdom of redemption|]
[|Harden your mind to the chains of the divine|]
[|Make way, the shepherd of fire|]

Bridge

Through the ages of time
I've been known for my hate
But I'm a dealer of simple choices
For me its never too late

Chorus
(alt.)

I am your pride, agent of wealth, bearer of needs
[And you know it's right]
I am your war, arming the strong, aiding the weak
I am your wrath, I am your guilt, I am your lust
 
[And you know it's right]
I am your law, I am your scar, I am your trust
Know me by name, shepherd of fire
