Here are the lyrics to Avenged Sevenfold's new song "Nobody."

The 2023 track is the first to be released off the group's new album Life Is But a Dream, their first original full length since 2016's The Stage. Both this new record and its predecessor were surrounded by unique hype campaigns, the latter undergoing a surprise release following a special virtual performance, whole the former has been supported by a cryptic scavenger hunt that has played out in the digital world as well as the real world.

Of course, Avenged's dedicated fans devoured every clue, pondering its significance and any relevant tie-ins to the long-awaited album. And even with the first single out, it's very unlikely this is the end of the teasers as this group has a knack for unconventional release plans, consistently looking to shake up how things are done in the rock and metal industry.

Avenged Sevenfold, "Nobody" Lyrics (via Genius)

[Verse 1]
Ride in the shadows wandering beyond the frame
Float like a feather through space and time outside a dream
Pirouette with divinity in a dance we've shared before
"Someone dissolution"
This is "I am all" as "I am none"
Here we fly so high, no, I, no coming down
Shedding weight as I'm coming undone
All that's left converging as one
I am the sun
I am the sun
I'm a God, I'm awake, I'm the one in everything
I'm alive, I'm the dead, I'm a man without a head

[Verse 2]
I walk with death in final exhalation
And come apart through violent separation
A thousand floors ascend into the ether
A lunatic enchanted by the reaper
And down below I leave a stranger laying lifeless as the light begins to shatter the skies
I ascend and leave behind the "used to be"
And tear the fabric worn to cover my eyes and see
I see


[Verse 3]
Breathe in the silence, ebb and flow among the waves
Blur on the spectrum in light come dark in equal phase
All I ever was, has been and always will be
Here I end where I started again beyond death and borne on the wind
I am the sun
I am the sun

I'm a God, I'm awake, I'm the one in everything
I'm alive, I'm the dead, I'm a man without a head
You might also like
Life Is But A Dream...
Avenged Sevenfold
Game Over
Avenged Sevenfold
Avenged Sevenfold
A crack in the darkness
A tear in the sky
A narrow moment when we find ourselves
And all we occupy
Return to the boundless
Immerse in the free
Letting go as you lose your name
And all you’ve known to be


[Guitar Solo]

[Instrumental Outro]
