Good Charlotte feat. M. Shadows n Synyster Gates of A7X – The River (Lyrics)

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of LA
The footsteps that were next to me
have gone their separate ways
I’ve seen enough now to know that beautiful things
don’t always stay that way
I’ve done enough now to know this beautiful place
isn’t everything they say

I heard that evil comes disguised
Like a city of angels
I’m walking towards the light

Baptized in the river
I’ve seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I’ve done a lot of things wrong
But I swear I’m a believer
Like the prodigal son
I was out on my own
Now I’m trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I’m delivered
I’m delivered

[M. Shadows:]
You’re from a small town
You’re gonna grow up fast underneath these lights
Down in Hollywood on the boulevard
The dead come back to life
To the praying Mother
And the worried Father
Let your children go
If they come back
They’ll come home stronger
And if they don’t you’ll know

[Together]
They say that evil comes disguised
Like a city of angels
I’m walking towards the light

[Joel Madden:]
Baptized in the river
I’ve seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I’ve done a lot of things wrong
But I swear I’m a believer
Like the prodigal son
I was out on my own
Now I’m trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I’m delivered
I’m delivered

Baptized in the river (on my own)
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
(on my own, on my own)
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
I confess I’m a sinner
I’ve seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered!

Note:

Well, many listeners said that this is actually a religious song in Christ-punk-rock genre. Gak heran, because there are M. Shadows and Synyster Gates of A7X yang terlibat di dalamnya. A7X seringkali terinspirasi oleh Bible dalam menulis lirik lagu-lagu mereka (lihat postingan tentang Avenged Sevenfold sebelumnya). Anyway, I think this song is comprehensively religious in a very universal ways, no matter what religion you hold. Anyway, the music rocks! But, unfortunately, the video is rather dark and it shows many sillhouettes so M. Shadows can not be seen clearly, and Synyster Gates… only appears at the end of the video (at his melody guitar part) and I can not even see his face! (sigh…) I’m very disappointed for the video (heheh…).
