Song lyrics: Avenged Sevenfold – Good Damn

Oh!

Hey! Can’t you see we’re tripping on the wire
Walking through the candy land of our desires
Press the magic button and behold the world you crave
Where’s the fun in freedom when it renders you a slave?

Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorned
And how the fire keeps us warm

Hey! It goes beyond big brother in the sky
Beyond the threat of martial law no Horus eye
No one came to cuff you they just handed you the chains
Blind follows the blind and now the one-eyed man is king

Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorned
And how the fire keeps us warm

Tunnel vision, no man
Damnation, god damn
Can’t see the forest for the trees
Can’t heal the wound before we bleed

No form of payment, no pot of gold will satisfy the debt of what he’s owed
Spilling from the houses in a trance the children lined up on the road
Cursing at the piper as he lured your kids away
And led them to the river for what was their final day
No need for convincing on his pipe he played a song to fool them all
Fooled them all

Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorn
And now the fire keeps us (keeps us)

Tunnel vision, no man
Damnation, god damn
Can’t see the forest for the trees
Can’t heal the wound before we bleed

About God Damn

The song is referencing the downward spiral of American politics. Our leaders continue to take us deeper in debt, to fight unnecessary and oppressive wars, to create a surveillance state, and to get wealthy by becoming increasingly corrupt.

While all this is happening, the American people ignorantly cheer for their choice of presidential nominee (no matter how horrible the choice) and ignore the greater problems that either will perpetuate once elected. We are unable to focus on the bigger picture (the forest through the trees).

Unless voters educate themselves, we will continue down this dark path… we may already be damned.

Videoclip

As quoted from Billboard, The video directed by Anders Rostad and filmed earlier this year in Southern California before a crowd of fan volunteers, some of whom traveled to be part of the shoot, the clip combines performance footage with high-tech special effects inspired by the album’s focus on Artificial Intelligence and other scientific/science-fiction themes.

“There’s a bunch of ideas that were thrown into the mixing bowl there,” A7X frontman M. Shadows, who personally greeted all those who attended the shoot, tells Billboard, “but the main idea was to get fans involved and make sure the kids knew this is a song full of energy first and foremost — ‘hey, this is a record we can wrap our heads around. It’s cool live stuff. It’s a rockin’ song’ — but at the same time, we wanted the technological hint in there, so as the video progresses you start seeing things glitching out and all of a sudden the world turns digital. And by the end, there’s a little nod to the lyrics; you see an eyeball kind of in there as an Easter egg, which is kind of big brother watching what we do the whole time as the humans turn into a digital world.”
