Requiem is the fifth of ten tracks (eleven on the deluxe version) on Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album, Hail to the King. Aside from being a nice little Queen homage, they might have also written it with the intention of putting it in a First Person Shooter video game in the future (which is a high possibility, because they have written for Call of Duty in the past).  

LyricsEdit

Prodigia, comploratus, silens, oro, regnet exitium

Days of warning, night brings morning, my prayers worthless, heaven is burning down

I walk stricken, pitch black vision, oh one save me, caress my weary eyes

Darkest lord, your mercy shall I gain, strike the match, engulf the earth in flames

In flames, in flames, in flames

Nature quaking, prophets aching, I kneel faithful, damnation cracks the sky

My heart fiction, superstition, your grace deathless, give life to my last breath

Darkest lord, your mercy shall I gain, strike the match, engulf the earth in flames

In flames, in flames, in flames

Prodigia, comploratus, silens, oro, regnet, exitium

Rise from the ashes, violence clashes my soul vacant, cleanse me of all this sin

I stand guilty, I bleed filthy, born of fire, savor of this final hour

Darkest lord, your mercy shall I gain, strike the match, engulf the earth in flames

In flames, in flames, in flames

Nature quaking, prophets aching, I kneel faithful, damnation cracks the sky

My heart fiction, superstition, your grace deathless, give life to my last breath

Darkest lord, your mercy shall I gain, strike the match, engulf the earth in flames

In flames, in flames, in flames
