Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Here are the official lyrics to Shepherd of Fire, the new Avenged Sevenfold song found on their new album, Hail to the King, which features in the cinematic intro to the zombies map, Origins.

Here is the intro (can be found on COD TV):

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 got a storybook of my own...
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...

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...
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...

Note: This following bit in italic is not confirmed, however is assumed to be correct on the verdict of many.
Disciple of the cross,
And champion in suffering,
Immerse yourself into the Kingdom of Redemption.
Pardon your mind, from the chains of the divine,
Make way, the Shepherd of Fire!




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

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!



These are the official lyrics to the song, found in the Digital Booklet of the Deluxe Version of the album.

Thank you for reading.

Excellent job! And so time-ready as well....

The main thing I noticed about this song is that it's fairly short, so maybe, JUST MAYBE we get a second song along with it:

A Clark song: Wouldn't make much sense considering samule wasn't born yet... Maxis maybe? Idk I never fully broke-down the clark-game symbolism.

A Malukah song: Means someone has died... Let's hope it's not the O4....

A Siegman song: Although Samantha isn't born yet. ANY one of us would love at least ONE of her songs here.

An "other" song: WOuld mean something... I wouldn't know.

What I suggest is that Kevin should've (if not already) written a song with Mala, Nova, and Elena all singing in the song in some fashion. It'd be cool if they were in synch and lyrically would apply to the O4 AND the N4 in some fashion. As like I said with Mob, there MUST be some reference to Green Runners somewhere.

I feel that there are some parts of this that are a bit askew and aren't correct. I added a transcription I made yesterday of the lyrics, with my take on some of the lines:

Shepherd of Fire

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 downed alone*

I got a story for you of my own

Don't you see I am your pride

Agent of war

Bearer of needs

And you know it's right

I am your war*

I'll be the strong aiding the weak

Know me by name

Shepherd of Fire

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

Now you know I am your pride

Agent of war

Bearer of needs

And you know it's right

I am your war*

I'll be the strong aiding the weak

Know me by name

Shepherd of Fire

Disciple on the cross

Champion in suffering

Immerse yourself into the kingdom of redemption

Pardon your mind from the chains of the divine

Make way the shepherd of fire

Through the ages of time

I've been known for my hate

But I'm a giver of simple choices

For me it's never too late

I am your pride

Agent of war

Bearer of needs

And you know it's right

I am your war*

I'll be the strong aiding the weak

I am your war*

I am your guilt

I am your lust

And you know it's right

I am your law*

I am your star

I am your trust

Know me by name

Shepherd of fire

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 drowned* alone

I got a story for you of my own

We know that in the past many of the songs came from Samanthas point of view.

I am starting to think more and more that we have been "dolls" "playing" in Samantha's story of what was, is, and will be. In other words we are in an infinite loop and Samantha is explaining how it got this way.

She wants to introduce herself and say that she is sorry for watching the "characters we play as" suffer in this story, she knows the feeling of being drowned or downed alone. Like the time she thought her father was dead and was stuck in the MPD...

She has a story for us and it begins in origins... I believe we've already played through the rest of her story already... Just look at the rest of the lyrics...

Now you know I am your pride,

agent of will,

bearer of needs.

(And you know what's right)

I am your war,

I'm in strong,

Aiming the weak.

Know me by name,

Shepherd of fire!

Samantha is the Bearer of needs (powerups in Der Riese and telling story)

She is the war, the story she tells is about the "war" (or basically all of the zombies maps and storyline we have played). She is in "strong" as the teller of the story, aiming the "Weak" or the elements of the story.

Know me by name, shepered of fire.

The dictionary definition for sheperd (the non-sheep one) is

a person who protects, guides, or watches over a person or group of people.

Samantha is watching over the story, telling it from a GOD point of view, we just didn't know that yet.... or did we.

But now she is re-introducing herself to tell us what is REALLY going on in the story, and how it started... :mrgreen:

No matter what that site says, those lyrics are not right. Even if you go through and listen to it, it says got, not have. There are other mistakes in there that I know are incorrect. "Aiming the weak" is one such example.

I don't think the lyrics mean anything in our zombie storyline. They played this off as if they just used the song from their new album, not that the song was made for zombies, like Not Ready to Die.

I do think there will be another song on the map. I don't think this song will be in the map. It'll be a Carry On deal. Not to mention Treyarch said that A7X contributed the song for the opening cinematic, not the map.

Ok, well that's awesome in that case. 8-) Still hope and wish it were Elena and Kev.

I'm also pretty sure this song is about our good pal Edward Richtofin, particularly this part:

Through the ages of time

I've been known for my hate

But I'm a dealer of sinful choices

For me it's never too late

but I also think the chorus is pretty blatantly about him too.

"arming the strong, aiding the weak"

Slight mistake on your behalf. For some reason you have "sinful choices" instead of "simple choices"

But I honestly don't think this could come from Edward. It's too much about remorse. And aiding the weak. If Richtofen was the teller, the entire song would be:

"AH WUNDERBAR YOU DELIVERED THE PART

KILL THE WEAKLINGS AND EAT TART"
