Biografia:

Metallica começou em 1980 quando Lars Ulrich e James Hetfield se juntaram para gravar uma demo, "No Life 'til Leather". Desde o principio procuraram levar aos extremos a agressividade de bandas que os influenciaram como Venon e Diamond Head, ajudando a consolidar o estilo thrash metal que davas seus primeiros passos.
A banda originalmente era composta por James Hetfield(vocal ), Lars Ulrich(bateria), Ron McGovney(baixo) e Dave Mustaine(guitarra). Este último foi demitido da banda por abuso de alcool e mais tarde montou a banda Megadeth.
Em 1983 gravaram o primeiro disco da banda com o título Kill 'em All. Um verdadeiro clássico considerado por muitos o melhor da banda. Com clássicos como Whiplash, Seek&Destroy e Metal Militia, o Metallica se destacava como um grande nome do thrash metal que mais tarde seria consagrado com outros clássicos.
Em 1984 sai o segundo álbum intitulado Ride the Lightning com músicas quase tão agressivas as do primeiro álbum. Desse álbum saem clássicos como For Whom the Bell Tolls, Creeping Death e Fade to Black.
Em 1986 o Metallica, já uma banda grande, lança o disco Master of Puppets, que divide com Kill 'em All o título de melhor da banda. O som havia se tornado mais elaborado, as letras mais profundas mas com a mesma agressividade. O Metallica foi talvez a primeira banda a alcançar uma venda de mais de 500 mil cópias sem ajuda de rádios ou video clipes
Na tour do disco Master of Puppets, ocorreu um fato que quase marcou o fim da banda. O ônibus que levava a banda sofreu um acidente causando a morte do baixista Cliff Burton. No seu lugar, entrou o baixista Jason Newsted, que até então tocava na banda Flotsam&Jetson. Seu primeiro trabalho com a banda foi intitulado EP Garage Days Re Revisited com covers de outras bandas.
Em 1988 é lançado o álbum ...And Justice For All. A banda havia composto músicas muito mais elaboradas e longas que foi preciso lançar um álbum duplo. Na tentativa de criar um som mais trabalhado que antes, o Metallica foi alvo de inúmeras críticas. Muitos fans alegavam que o som da banda havia perdido seu peso e que a banda havia se vendido. Essas idéias são agravadas com o lançamento do clipe One pela MTV que vira um grande sucesso da banda. Independente das críticas dos fans, o álbum é indicado ao Grammy pelas suas fantásticas composições mas perde o título para o Jethro Thull.
Em 1991 é lançado o álbum Metallica, conhecido também como Black Album. As críticas pelos fans mais radicais permacem iguais. Para eles, a banda havia se tornado popular. O álbum preto estreiou em primeiro lugar nas paradas vendendo mais de 10 milhões de cópias. As rádios do mundo inteiro tocavam com exaustão as músicas desse álbum. O Metallica sai assim para uma grande turnê mundial que chega a durar quase 4 anos. Embora o álbum não seja ruim, percebe-se em algumas músicas a falta de agressividade que a banda apresentava no principio da carreira, mas músicas como Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters e The Unforgiven se destacam fazendo do álbum um grande sucesso.
Após 5 anos em do lançamento do black albúm, o Metallica lança em 1996, um dos álbuns mais esperados do ano. No dia 13 de maio de 1996, na Inglaterra, o Metallica lança para os ingleses, a primeira audição do disco Load. Um dos álbuns mais controversos da banda é lançado em meio de milhares de fans ingleses que se reuniram na cidade de Londres para conferir o tão esperado álbum. As reações foram diversas. O álbum é muito apreciado por alguns do mesmo modo que odiado por outros. O fato é que o Metallica se mostrava com uma "cara nova", trazendo em seu som, mudanças radicais em relação aos álbuns anteriores. O álbum apresentou baladas como as famosas Mama Said, Until it Sleep, e músicas mais rápidas como Ain't My Bitch.
Em 1997, o Metallica lança o álbum Reload. Mais uma vez a banda é alvo de inúmeras polêmicas. Para muitos o resultado ja era esperado, afinal, Reload tem quase a mesma cara que Load e as mesmas influências. Definitivamente, alguns fans perderam a confiança que depositavam na banda, fazendo críticas nas músicas e até mesmo no visual dos integrantes. A banda realmente tinha mudado sua maneira de compôr, de se vestir, de tocar, mas nem por isso o álbum deixou de ser vendido no mundo todo e muito menos de lotar todos os shows da banda. Músicas como Fuel, Devil's Dance e Memory Remains se destacaram no álbum.
Após dois álbuns muito polêmicos, o Metallica lança um álbum(duplo), só de covers. O álbum apresentava músicas já lançadas pela banda anteriormente em seu disco The $5.98 EP Garage Days Re-Revisited. Além das já apresentadas, Garage Inc. apresenta 11 inéditas de bandas como Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Misfits e Mercyful Fate. Este é menos criticado que os anteiores, mas a banda ainda é apontada por falta de criatividade. O fato é que o Metallica lançou um trabalho muito bom com covers de bandas consagradas. O cover feito do Mercyful Fate foi um dos melhores do CD mostrando que o Metallica tem muita competência no que faz.
No fim de 1999, o Metallica lança S&M. Esse álbum era mais do que especial para a banda, afinal ja não eram apenas os quatro tocando em estúdio, mas se tratava de um álbum ao vivo tocado juntamente com a Orquestra Sinfônica de São Francisco. Ao lado de Michael Kamen(maestro responsável pelos sinfônicos) o Metallica apresentava um CD muito competente que trazia versões de músicas já lançadas pela banda, mas com toques clássicos de uma orquestra. Mais uma vez, o Metallica lançava um álbum duplo com alguns dos maiores clássicos da banda. A grande falta do CD foi a música Fade to Black que se encaixaria perfeitamente em uma versão sinfônica, mas músicas como The Call of Ktulu, One, e Nothing Else Matters ficaram excelentes em suas novas versões. Além dos seus antigos clássicos, duas músicas inéditas eram apresentadas pela banda. - Human e No Leaf Clover eram apresentadas em grande estilo. As duas músicas caíram muito bem nesse CD, mas novamente o Metallica era criticado por alguns fans.
O fato é que o Metallica vem se mostrando uma banda versátil e muito profissional. Independentemente de seu som atual, não há como negar que o Metallica fez seu espaço no cenário metalico e é tida atualmente como uma das maiores bandas de todos os tempos.

Lyrics:

Kill 'em All

Hit the Lights
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

No life till leather
We are gonna kick some ass tonight
We got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
It's right well alright
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

You know our fans are insane
We are gonna blow this place away
with volume higher
Than anything today the only way
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

With all our screaming
We are gonna rip right through your brain
We got the lethal power
It is causing you sweet pain Oh sweet pain
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights


The Four Horsemen
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Mustaine)

By the last breath of the fourth winds blow
Better raise your ears
The sound of hooves knocks at your door
Lock up your wife and children now
It's time to wield the blade
For now you have got some company

The Horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have come to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four Horsemen ride
or choose your fate and die

You have been dying since the day
You were born
You know it has all been planned
The quartet of deliverence rides
A sinner once a sinner twice
No need for confession now
Cause now you have got the fight of your life

The Horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have come to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four Horsemen ride
or choose your fate and die

Time
has taken its toll on you
The lines that crack your face
Famine
Your body it has torn through
Withered in every place
Pestilence
For what you have had to endure
And what you have put others through
Death
Deliverence for you for sure
There is nothing you can do

So gather round young warriors now
and saddle up your steeds
Killing scores with demon swords
Now is the death of doers of wrong
Swing the judgement hammer down
Safely inside armor blood guts and sweat

The Horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have come to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four Horsemen ride
or choose your fate and die


Motorbreath
(Hetfield)

Living and dying laughing and crying
Once you have seen it you will never be the same
Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

Motorbreath
Its how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

Don't stop for nothing its full speed or nothing
I am taking down you know whatever is in my way
Getting your kicks as you are shooting the line
Sending the shivers up and down your spine

Motorbreath
Its how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

Those people who tell you not to take chances
They are all missing on what life is about
You only live once so take hold of the chance
Don't end op like others the same song and dance

Motorbreath
Its how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away


Jump in the Fire
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Mustaine)

Down in the depths of my firey home
The summons bell will chime
Tempting you and all the earth
to join our sinful kind
There is a job to be done and I'm the one
You people make me do it
Now it is time for your fate and I won't hesitate
to pull you down into this pit

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire

With hell in my eyes and with death in my veins
The end is closing in
Feeding on the minds of man
and from their souls within
My disciples all shout to search out
And they always shall obey
Follow me now my child not the meek or the mild
But do just as I say

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire

Jump by your will or be taken by force
I'll get you either way
Trying to keep the hellfire lit
I am stalking you as prey
Living your life as me I am you you see
So reach down grab my hand walk with me through the land
Come home where you belong

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire


(Anesthesia)--Pulling Teeth
(Burton)

(Bass instrumental)


Whiplash
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Late at night all systems go
You have come to see the show
We do our best You're the rest
You make it real you know
There is a feeling deep inside
That drives you fuckin' mad
A feeling of a hammerhead
You need it oh so bad

Adrenalin starts to flow
You're thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Whiplash

Bang your head against the stage
Like you never did before
Make it ring Make it bleed
Make it really sore
In a frenzied madness
with your leather and your spikes
Heads are bobbing all around
It is hot as hell tonight

Adrenalin starts to flow
You're thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Whiplash

Here on the stage the Marshal noise
is piercing through your ears
It kicks your ass kick your face
Exploding feeling nears
Now is the time to let it rip
To let it fuckin' loose
We are gathered here to maim and kill
Cause this is what we choose

Adrenalin starts to flow
You're thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Whiplash

The show is through the metal is gone
It is time to hit the road
Another town Another gig
Again we will explode
Hotel rooms and motorways
Life out here is raw
But we will never stop
We will never quit
cause we are Metallica

Adrenalin starts to flow
You're thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Whiplash


Phantom Lord
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Mustaine)

Sound is ripping through your ears
The deafing sound of metal nears
Your bodies waiting for his whips
The taste of leather on your lips

Hear the cry of War
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
to control the land
Crushing metal strikes
on this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

Victems falling under chains
You hear them crying death pains
The fists of terrors breaking through
Now there's nothing you can do

Hear the cry of War
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
to control the land
Crushing metal strikes
on this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

The leather armies have prevailed
The Phantom Lord has never failed
Smoke is lifting from the ground
The rising volume metal sound

Hear the cry of War
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
to control the land
Crushing metal strikes
on this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

Fall to your knees
and bow to the Phantom Lord


No Remorse
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

No mercy for what we are doing
No thought to even what we have done
We don't need to feel the sorrow
No remorse for the helpless one

War without end
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Blood feeds the war machine
as it eats its way across the land
We don't need the feel the sorrow
No remorse is the one command

War without end
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Only the strong survive
No one to save the weaker race
We are ready to kill all comers
Like a loaded gun right at your face

War without end
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath
No remorse No repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day Another death
Another sorrow Another breath

Attack
Bullets are flying
People are dying
with madness surrounding all hell's breaking loose
Soldiers are hounding
Bodies are mounting
cannons are shouting to take their abuse
With war machines going
Blood starts to flowing
No mercy given to anyone hear
The furious fighting
Swords are like lighting
It all becomes frightening to you
Know death is near
No remorse


Seek and Destroy
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

We are scanning the scene in the city tonight
We are looking for you to start up a fight
There is an evil feeling in our brains
But it is nothing new you know it drives us insane

Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy

There is no escape and that is for sure
This is the end we won't take any more
Say goodbye to the world you live in
You have always been taking but now you're giving

Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy

Our brains are on fire
with the feeling to kill
And it will not go away
until our dreams are fulfilled
There is only one thing
on our minds
Don't try running away
`cause you're the one we will find

Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Running, On our way
Hiding, You will pay
Dying, One thousand deaths
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy
Searching,
Seek and Destroy


Metal Militia
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Mustaine)

Thunder and lightning the gods take revenge
Senseless destruction
Victems of fury are cowardly now
Running for safety
Stabbing the harlot to pay for her sins
Leaving the virgin
Suicide running as if it were free
Ripping and tearing

On through the mist and the madness
We are trying to get the message to you
Metal Militia
Metal Militia
Metal Militia

Chained and shadowed to be left behind
nine and one thousand
Metal militia for your sacrifice
iron clad soldiers
Join or be conquered the law of the land
What will befall you
The metalization of your inner soul
twisting and turning

On through the mist and the madness
We are trying to get the message to you
Metal Militia
Metal Militia
Metal Militia

We are as one as we all are the same
fighting for one cause
Leather and metal are our uniforms
protecting what we are
Joining together to take on the world
with our heavy metal
Spreading the message to everyone here
Come let yourself go

On through the mist and the madness
We are trying to get the message to you
Metal Militia
Metal Militia
Metal Militia


Ride The Lightning

Fight Fire With Fire
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

Do unto others as they have done unto you
But what in the hell is this world coming to?

Blow the universe into nothingness
Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest
[chorus:]
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

We shall die
Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon is here, like said in the past

[chorus]

Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

[chorus]

Fight fire with fire


Ride the Lightning
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Mustaine)

Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ain't right
There is someone else controlling me

Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me

Who made you God to say
"I'll take your life from you!"
[chorus:]
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flames

Wait for the sign
To flick the switch of death
It's the beginning of the end

Sweat, chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness my only friend

My fingers grip with fear
What I am doing here?

[chorus]

Someone help me
Oh please God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

Time moving slowly
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see

How true is this?
Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be

Wakened by the horrid cream
Freed from the frightening dream

[chorus]


For Whom the Bell Tolls
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
On the fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?
For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know
Suffered wounds test their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know
[chorus:]
For whom the bell tolls
Time marches on
For whom the bell tolls

Take a look to the sky just before you die
It is the last time you will
Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky
Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry
Stranger now, are his eyes, to this mystery
He hears the silence so loud
Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
Now the will see what will be, blinded eyes to see

[chorus]


Fade to Black
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now He's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye


Trapped Under Ice
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

I don't know how to live trough this hell
Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
Break the ice, I can't take anymore
[chorus:]
Freezing
Can't move at all
Screaming
Can't hear my call
I am dying to live
Cry out
I'm trapped under the ice

Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
Eyes of glass stare directly at death
From deep sleep I have broken away
No one knows, no one hears what I say

[chorus]

Scream, from my soul
Fate, mystified
Hell, forever more

No release from my cryonic state
What is this? I've been stricken by fate
Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

[chorus]


Escape
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Fell no pain, but my life ain't easy
I know I'm my best friend
No one cares, but I'm so much stronger
I'll fight until the end
To escape from the true false world
Undamaged destiny
Can't get caught in the endless circle
Ring of stupidity
[chorus:]
Out of my own, out to be free
One with my mind, they just can't see
No need to hear things that they say
Life is for my own to live my own way

Rape my mind and destroy my feelings
Don't tell my what to do
I don't care now, 'cause I'm on my side
And I can see through you
Feed my brain with your so called standards
Who says that I ain't right
Break away from your common fashion
See through your blurry sight

[chorus]

See they try to bring the hammer down
No damn chains can hold me to the ground
Life is for my own to live my own way


Creeping Death
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

Slaves
Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
Heed
To his every word, live in fear
Faith
Of the unknown one, the deliverer
Wait
Something must be done, four hundred years
[chorus:]
So let it be written
So let it be done
I'm sent here by the chosen one
So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born pharaoh son
I'm creeping death

Now
Let my people go, land of goshen
Go
I will be with thee, bush of fire
Blood
Running red and strong, down the nil
Plague
Darkness three days long, hail to fire

[chorus]

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man
Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man
I
Rule the midnight air the destroyer
Born
I shall soon be there, deadly mass
I
Creep the steps and floor final darkness
Blood
Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass

[chorus]


Master Of Puppets

Battery
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

[chorus:]
Smashing through the boundries
lunacy has found me
cannot stop the Battery
Pounding out aggression
turns into obsession
cannot kill the Battery
Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me
Battery
[End Chorus]

Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

[Chorus]

Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry
We create the Battery

[Chorus].


Master of Puppets
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your death's construction

[Chorus:]
Taste me you will see
more is all you need
you're dedicated to
how I'm killing you

Come crawling faster
obey your Master
your life burns faster
obey your Master
Master

Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
[End Chorus]

Needlework the way, never you betray
life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
chop your breakfast on a mirror

[Chorus]

Master, Master, Where's the dreams that I've been after?
Master, Master, You promised only lies
Laughter, Laughter, All I hear and see is laughter
Laughter, Laughter, laughing at my cries

Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
just a rhyme without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
now your life is out of season

I will occupy
I will help you die
I will run through you
Now I rule you too

Come crawling faster
obey your Master
your life burns faster
obey your Master
Master

Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

[Fade out with evil laughter].


The Thing That Should Not Be
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Messenger of Fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light

Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for Father, roaming free

fearless Wretch
insanity
He watches
lurking beneath the sea
great Old One
forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the Shadows is rising
immortal
in madness You dwell

Crawling Chaos, underground
cult has summoned, twisted sound

Out from ruins once possessed
fallen city, living death

fearless Wretch
insanity
He watches
lurking beneath the sea
timeless sleep
has been upset
He awakens
Hunter of the Shadows is rising
immortal
in madness You dwell

Not dead which eternal lie
stranger eons Death may die

drain you of your sanity
face The Thing That Should Not Be

fearless Wretch
insanity
He watches
lurking beneath the sea
great Old One
forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the Shadows is rising
immortal
in madness You dwell.


Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Welcome to where time stands still
no one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there
and cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
he's getting better, can't you tell?

No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
but they think this saves us from our Hell

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
seems the only way
for reaching out again.


Disposable Heroes
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be
a servant `til I fall

[Chorus:]
Soldier boy, made of clay
now an empty shell
twenty one, only son
but he served us well
Bred to kill, not to care
just do as we say
finished here, Greeting Death
he's yours to take away

Back to the front
you will do what I say, when I say
Back to the front
you will die when I say, you must die
Back to the front
you coward
you servant
you blindman
[End Chorus]

Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
bodies fill the fields I see
the slaughter never ends

[Chorus]

Why, Am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie, live off lying
Hell, Hell is here

I was born for dying

Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
had no chance to see myself, moulded day by day
Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

[Chorus]

Back to the front.


Leper Messiah
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
Please, please
spreading his disease, living by his story
Knees, knees
falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
You will

[Chorus]
Time for lust, time for lie
time to kiss your life goodbye
Send me money, send me green
Heaven you will meet
Make a contribution
and you'll get a better seat
[End Chorus]

Bow to Leper Messiah

Marvel at his tricks, need your Sunday fix
blind devotion came, rotting your brain
Chain, chain
Join the endless chain
Fame, Fame
Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
We see

[Chorus]

Bow to Leper Messiah

Witchery, weakening
Sees the sheep are gathering
set the trap, hypnotize
now you follow

[Chorus]

Lie.


Orion
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

(Instrumental)


Damage, Inc.
(Hetfield, Ulrich, BUrton, Hammett)

Dealing out the agony within
charging hard and no one's gonna give in
Living on your knees, conformity
or dying on your feet for honesty
Inbred, our bodies work as one
bloody, but never cry submission
Following our instinct not a trend
go against the grain until the end

[Chorus:]
Blood will follow blood
Dying time is here
Damage Incorporated
[End Chorus]

Slamming through, don't fuck with razorback
stepping out? You'll feel our hell on your back
Blood follows blood and we make sure
life ain't for you and we're the cure
Honesty is my only excuse
Try to rob us of it, but it's no use
Steamroller action crushing all
Victim is your name and you shall fall

[Chorus]

We chew and spit you out
we laugh, you scream and shout
All flee, with fear you run
You'll know just where we come from

Damage Incorporated

Damage jackals ripping right through you
sight and smell of this, it gets me goin'
Know just how to get just what we want
tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
Never happy ending on these dark sets
All's fair for Damage Inc. you see
step a little closer if you please

[Chorus].


... And Justice For All

Blackened
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Newsted)

Blackened is the end
Winter it will send
Throwing all you see
Into obscurity

Death of mother earth
Never a rebirth
Evolution's end
Never will it mend

Never

Fire
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blistering of earth
Terminate its worth
Deadly nicotine
Kills what might have been

Callous frigid chill
Nothing left to kill
Never seen before
Breathing nevermore

Never

Fire
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blackened

Opposition...contradiction...premonition...compromise
Agitation...violation...mutilation...planet dies
Darkest color
Blistered earth
True death of life
Termination....expiration...cancellation...human race
Expectation...liberation...population...lay to waste
See our mother
Put to death
See our mother die

Smouldering decay
Take her breath away
Millions of our years
In minutes disappears

Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the sun

Never

Fire
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Fire
Is the outcome of hypocrisy
Darkest potency
In the exit of humanity
Color our world blackened

Blackened


...And Justice For All
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Halls of justice painted green
Money talking
Power wolves beset your door
Hear them stalking
Soon you'll please their appetite
They devour
Hammer of justice crushes you
Overpower

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe
I can't believe the price you pay
Nothing can save you

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim
So true
So real

Apathy their stepping stone
So unfeeling
Hidden deep animosity
So deceiving
Through your eyes their light burns
Hoping to find
Inquisition sinking you
With prying minds

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe
I can't believe the price you pay
Nothing can save you

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim
So true
So real

Lady justice has been raped
Truth assassin
Rolls of red tape seal your lips
Now you're done in
Their money tips her scales again
Make your deal
Just what is truth? I cannot tell
Cannot feel

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can't believe the things you say
I can't believe
I can't believe the price we pay
Nothing can save us

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim
So true
So real

Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim
So true
So real


Eye Of The Beholder
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Do you see what I see?
Truth is an offence
You silence for your confidence

Do you hear what I hear?
Doors are slamming shut
Limit your imagination,
keep you where they must

Do you feel what I feel?
Bittering distress
Who decides what you express

Do you take what I take?
Endurance is the word
Moving back instead of forward
seems to me absurd

[chorus:]
Doesn't matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it's done just how I say

Independence limited
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with their exception
[end chorus]

Do you fear what I fear?
Living properly
Truths to you are lies to me

Do you choose what I choose?
More alternives
Energy derives from both the plus and negative

Do you need what I need?
Boundaries overthrown
Look inside to each his own

Do you trust what I trust?
Me, myself and I
Penetrate the smoke screen
I see through the selfish lie

[chorus]

Do you know what I know?
Your money end your wealth
Your silence just to hear yourself

Do you want what I want?
Desire not a thing
I hunger after independence
lengthen freedom's ring

Doesn't matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it's done just how I say

Independence limited
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with no longer frees you

Doesn't matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it's done just how I say


One
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

I can't remember anything
Can't tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel to scream
This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me
I'm waking up I can not see
That there is not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please god, wake me

Back in the womb its much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can't look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I'll live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please god, wake me
Now the world is gone I'm just one
Oh god, help me hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please god help me

Darkness imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell


The Shortest Straw
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Suspicion is your name
Your honesty to blame
Put dignity to shame
Dishonor
Witchhunt modern day
Determining decay
The blattand disarray
Disfigure
The public eyes' disgrace
Defying common place
Unending paper chase
Unending

Deafening
Painstaking
Reckoning
This vertigo it doth bring

Shortest straw
Challenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

The accusations fly
Discrimination, why?
Your inner self to die
Intruding
Doubt sunk itself in you
It's teeth and talons through
Your living catch 22
Deluding

A mass hysteria
A megalomania
Reveal dementia
Reveal

Secretly
Silently
Certainly
In vertigo you will be

Shortest straw
Chalenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

Behind you, hands are tied
Your being, ostracized
Your hell is multiplied
Upending
The fallout has begun
Oppresive damage done
Your many turned to none
To nothing
You're reaching your nadir
Your will has disappeared
The lie is crystal clear
Defending

Channels red
One word said
Blaclisted
With vertigo make you dead

Shortest straw
Chalenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you
pulled for you


Harvester Of Sorrow
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

My life suffocates
Planting seeds of hate
I've loved, turned to hate
Trapped far beyond my fate

I give
You take
This life that I forsake
Been cheated of my youth
You turned this lie to truth

Anger
Misery
You'll suffer unto me

Harvester of sorrow
Language of the mad
Harvester of sorrow

Pure black looking clear
My work is done soon here
Try getting back to me
Get back which used to be

Drink up
Shoot in
Let the beatings begin
Distributor of pain
Your loss becomes my gain

Anger
Misery
You'll suffer unto me

Harvester of sorrow
Language of the mad
Harvester of sorrow

All have said their prayers
Invade their nightmares
See into my eyes
You'll find where murder lies

Infanticide

Harvester of sorrow
Language of the mad
Harvester of sorrow
Language of the mad
Harvester of sorrow


The Frayed Ends Of Sanity
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Never hunger
Never prosper
I have fallen prey to failure
Struggle within
Triggered again
Now the candle burns at both ends

Twisting under schizophrenia
Falling deep into dementia

Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Everyone's after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

Birth of terror
Death of much more
I'm the slave of fear, my captor
Never warnings
Spreading its wings
As I wait for the horror she brings

Loss of interest, question, wonder
Waves of fear they pull me under

Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Everyone's after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

Into run
I am sinking
Hostage of this nameless feeling
Hell is set free
Flooded I'll be
Feel the undertow inside me

Height, hell, time, haste, terror, tension
Life, death, want, waste, mass depression

Old habbits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Myself is after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

To Live Is To Die
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

When a man lies he murders some part of the world
These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives
All this I cannot bear to witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home


Dyers Eve
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Dear mother
Dear father
What is this hell you have put me through
Believer
Deceiver
Day in day out live my life through you
Pushed onto me what's wrong or right
Hidden from this thing that they call life

Dear mother
Dear father
Every thought I'd think you'd disapprove
Curator
Dictator
Always cencoring my every move
Children are seen bur are not heard
Tear out everything inspired

Innocence
Torn from me without your shelter
Barred reality
I'm living blindly

Dear mother
Dear father
Time has frozen still what's left to be
Hear nothing
Say nothing
Cannot face the fact I think for me
No guarantee, it's life as is
But damn you for not giving me my chance

Dear mother
Dear father
You've clipped my wings before I learned to fly
Unspoiled
Unspoken
I've outgrown that fucking lullaby
Same thing I've always heard from you
Do as I say not as I do

Innocence
Torn from me without your shelter
Barred reality
I'm living blindly
I'm in hell without you
Cannot cope without you two
Shocked at the world that I see
Innocent victim please rescue me

Dear mother
Dear father
Hidden in your world you've made for me
I'm seething
I'm bleeding
Ripping wounds in me that never heal
Undying spite I feel for you
Living out this hell you always knew

Black

Enter Sandman
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Say your prayers little one
Don't forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We're off to never never land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We're off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed,
In your closet, in your head
Exit: light
Enter: night
Grain of sand
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We're off to never never land


Sad But True
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who takes you there
Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who cares
They
They betray
I'm your only true friend now
They
They'll betray
I'm forever there

I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel
Sad but true
I'm your dream, mind astray
I'm your eyes while you're away
I'm your pain while you repay
You know it's sad but true
Sad but true

You
You're my mask
You're my cover, my shelter
You
You're my mask
You're the one who's blamed
Do
Do my work
Do my dirty work, scapegoat
Do
Do my deeds
For you're the one who's shamed

I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel
Sad but true
I'm your dream, mind astray
I'm your eyes while you're away
I'm your pain while you repay
You know it's sad but true
Sad but true

Hate
I'm your hate
I'm your hate when you want love
Pay
Pay the price
Pay, for nothing's fair
Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who took you there
Hey
I'm your life
And I no longer care

I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel
Sad but true
I'm your truth, telling lies
I'm your reason alibis
I'm inside open your eyes
I'm you
Sad but true


Holier Than Thou
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

No more!
The crap rolls out your mouth again
Haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
Little whispers circle around your head
Why don't you worry about yourself instead

Who are you? Where ya been? Where ya from?
Gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
You lie so much you believe yourself
Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

Holier than thou you are
Holier than thou you are
You know not

Before you judge me take a look at you
Can't you find something better to do
Point the finger, slow to understand
Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

It's not who you are it's who you know
Others lives are the basis of your own
Burn your bridges build them back with wealth
Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

Holier than thou you are
Holier than thou you are
You know not

Yeah who hell are you

Holier than thou you are
Holier than thou you are
You know not


The Unforgiven
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

New blood joins this earth
And quickly he's subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules

With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he's known
A wow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they'll take away

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is

Throughout his life the same
He's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

You labeled me
I'll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven


Wherever I May Roam
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

...and the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need

...and with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave

Rover Wanderer Nomad Vagabond
Call me what you will
But I'll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind anywhere
And I'll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my head is home

...and the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
Under wandering stars I've grown
By myself but not alone
I ask no one

... and my ties are severed clean
the less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign

Rover Wanderer Nomad Vagabond
Call me what you will
But I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
And I'll never mind anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my head is home

But I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind
And I'll take my find anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my head is home

But I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
And I'll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my head is home
Carved upon my stone
My body lies, but still I roam

Wherever I may roam
Wherever I my wander, wander, wander
Wherever I may roam...


Don't Tread On Me
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Don't tread on me, say don't tread on me
Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

Don't tread on me
[chorus:]
So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...
[end chorus]

Don't tread on me

Love it or leave it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as the lighting strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

Don't tread on me

[chorus]

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail

[chorus]

Don't tread on me


Through The Never
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

All that is, was and will be
Universe much too big to see
Time and space never ending
Disturbing thoughts, questions pending
Limitations of human understanding
Too quick to criticize
Obligation to survive
We hunger to be alive

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never

In the dark, see past our eyes
Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies
Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
On a quest, meaning, reason
Came to be, how it begun
All alone in the family of the sun
Curiosity teasing everyone
On our home, third stone from the sun

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never

On through the never
We must go
On through the never
Out to the
Edge of forever
We must go
On through the never
Then never comes

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Twisting
Turning
Who we are
Ask forever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never
Never


Nothing Else Matters
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Everyday for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Everyday for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters


Of Wolf And Man
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Off through the new day's mist I run
Out from the new day's mist I have come
I hunt
Therefore I am
Harvest the land
Taking of the fallen lamb

Off through the new day's mist I run
Out from the new day's mist I have come
We shift
Pulsing with the earth
Company we keep
Roaming the land while you sleep

Shape shift Nose to the wind
Shape shift Feeling I've been
Move shift All senses clean
Earth's gift Back to the meaning of life

Bright is the moon high in starlight
Chill in the air cold as steel tonight
We shift
Call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It's later than you realized

Shape shift Nose to the wind
Shape shift Feeling I've been
Move shift All senses clean
Earth's gift Back to the meaning of life

I feel a change
Back to a better day
Hair stands on the back of my neck
In wildness is the preservation of the world
So seek the wolf in thyself

Shape shift Nose to the wind
Shape shift Feeling I've been
Move shift All senses clean
Earth's gift
Back to the meaning of wolf and man


The God That Failed
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Not the word
Not the love
Not what you thought from above

It feeds
It grows
It clouds all that you will know
Deceit
Deceive
Decide just what you believe
I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the depended nail
Follow the god that failed

Find your peace
Find your say
Find the smooth road on your way

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

It feeds
It grows
It clouds all that you will know
Deceit
Deceive
Decide just what you believe
I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the depended nail
Follow the god that failed

I see faith in your eyes
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the depended nail
Follow the god that failed

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the depended nail
Follow the god that failed


My Friend Of Misery
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Newsted)

You just stood there screaming
Fearing no one was listening to you
They say the empty can rattles the most
The sound of your own voice must soothe you
Hearing only what you want to hear
And knowing only what you've heard
You... You're smothered in tragedy
You're out to save the world

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than you see
My friend of misery

You still stood there screaming
No one caring about these words you tell
My friend before your voice is gone
One man's fun is another's hell
These times are sent to try men's souls
But something's wrong with all you see
You... You'll take it on all yourself
Remember misery loves company

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than you see
My friend of misery
My friend of misery

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than you see
My friend of misery
You still stood there creaming
My friend of misery


The Struggle Within
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Reaching out for something you've got to feel
While clutching to what you had thought was real

Kicking at a dead horse pleases you
No way of showing your gratitude
So many things you don't want to do
What is it? What have you got to lose

What the hell
What is it you think you're gonna find?
Hypocrite
Boredom sets into the boring mind

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within

Home is not a home it becomes a hell
Turning it into your prison cell
Advantages are taken, not handed out
While you struggle inside your hell
Reaching out
Grabbing for something you've got to feel
Closing in
The pressure upon you is so unreal

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within

Reaching out for something you've got to feel
While clutching to what you had thought was real

What the hell
What is it you think you're gonna find?
Hypocrite
Boredom sets into the boring mind

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within

Load

Ain't My Bitch
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Out of my way
Out of my day
Out of your mind and into mine

Into no more
Into not born
Into your step but out of time

It's strong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before
You're right but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye

Dragging me down
While you were round
So useless

It ain't my fault
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch
It ain't my bitch

Down on the sun
Down on your fun
Down and out where the hell you've been

Damn it all down
Damn it on bound
Damn it all down ta hell again

Stand tall
They fall
Never even meant it all before
You're right but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye

Dragging me down
While you were round
So useless

It ain't my fault
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

Out of my way

Out of my way
Out of my day
Out of your mind and into mine

Into no more
Into not born
Into your step but out of time

It's strong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before
You're right but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye
And now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye

Dragging me down
While you were round
So useless

It ain't my fault
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

No way but down
While you were round
No foolin'

It ain't my smile
It ain't my style
It ain't my bitch

The House Jack Built
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Open door so I walk inside
Close my eyes find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close again
Well on my way
On my way to where I graze
It swallows me
As it takes me in it's hold
I twist away
As I give this world a nod

Open door so I walk inside
Close my eyes find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close once again
Don't want control
As it takes me down and down and down again
Is that the moon
Or just a light that lights this dead end street?
Is that you there
Or just another demon that I meet?

[chorus:]
The higher you walk
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tells
[end chorus]
"Step into the house that Jack built"

[chorus]
"Yes this is the house that Jack built"

Open door as I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take this in
Let the show begin
Let the show begin
Let the show begin

[chorus]
"Yes this is the house that Jack built"

[chorus]
"Yes I am I am I am"

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there
I twist away
Away
Away
Away


Until it Sleeps
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open, pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like a curse, just like a stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays, now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip
Don't want your greed
Don't want it

Now tear me open make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps

Don't want it
I don't want it, want it, want it, want it, want it, no

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me till clean

Now tear me open make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until it sleeps
Until is sleeps


King Nothing
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold
Dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

[chorus:]
All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased
Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the King
But the castle's crumbled and you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?
[end chorus]

Hot and cold
Bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Yeah, are you satisfied?
Wish I might, Wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

[chorus]

Huh!

I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish, I wish tonight
I want that star, I want it now
I want it all and I don't care how

Care for what you wish
Care for what you say
Care for what you wish you may regret it
Care for what you wish you just might get it

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the King
But the castle's crumbled and you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing?

Nothin'
Oh, you're just nothing
Where's your crown King Nothing?
Oh, you're just nothing
Absolutely nothing
Off to never, never land


Hero of the Day
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Mama they try and break me

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they go
They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Do you feel your name?
Did you hear your babies crying?

Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me

Excuse me while I tell them how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real
Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking starts by wheels of this pain

Don't want your hate
But the fist I make
For you still hold no fear
No not on me
So please excuse me
while I tell them how I feel

[chorus:]
But now the dreams end
And now the dreams end
They everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light

So can you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Did you hear your names?
Did you hear your babies crying?

[chorus]

So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try

Cure
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

The man takes another bullet
He keeps them all within
He must seek no matter how it hurts
So don't fool again

He thinks the answer is told and in his hand
He takes his medicine
The man takes another bullet
Yeah, he's been fooled again

[chorus:]
Uncross your arms
Take and throw them to the cure, say...
I do believe
Uncross your arms now
Take them to and say...
I do believe
Yeah, I do believe
[end chorus]

The lie is tempted and she follows
Again she hits him in
She must believe to feel the hollow
She's been fooled again

Good Day, how ya doing
And I see and I smile to you
Don't waste
Waste your breath
Now I will waste my hate on you

Ain't gonna waste my hate

A smile to you

I feel that blood that pumps in me
But where the hell's my mind?
Don't know
Get goin' now

[chorus]

Then I'll keep it for myself

Better to give then to recieve

Ain't gonna waste my hate, no, no
Ain't got time to waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it all for myself
For myself

[chorus]

Think I'll keep it for myself

Mama Said
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2

Mama, she has taught me well
Told me when I was young
"Son, your life's an open book
Don't close it 'fore its done"
"The brightest flame burns quickest"
That's what I heard her say
A son's heart sowed to mother
But I must find my way

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Mama, let this heart be still
Yeah, still

Rebel, mind your last name
Wild blood in my veins
They bring strings around my neck
The mark that still remains
Left home at an early age
Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness
But what is said is done

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Mama, let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Mama, now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son
Spoken, help me be
I took your love for granted
Not a thing you said to me
I needed your arms to welcome me
But, a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
So let this heart be still

Let my heart go
Mama, let my heart go
Ya never let my heart go
So let this heart be still, oh

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Let this heart be still


Thorn Within
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Forgive me father
For I have sinned
Find me guilty of the life I feel within

When I'm branded
This mark of shame
Should I look down disgraced
Or straight ahead and know that you must bleed

I am, I am the secret
I am, I am the sin
I am, I am the guilty
And I, I am the thorn within

Forgive me father
For I have sinned
Find me guilty when true guilt is from within

So point your fingers
Point right at me
For I am shadows
And will follow you
Whatever's in my way

I am, I am the secret
I am, I am the sin
I am, I am the guilty
And I, I am the thorn within

I do your time
I take your fall
I'm branded guilty for a soul

So point your fingers
Point right at me
For I am shadows
And will follow you
Whatever's in my way

I am, I am your secrets
I am, I am your sin
I am, I am your guilty
And I, I am the thorn within

I am the thorn within
I am the thorn within
I am the thorn within


Ronnie
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

Stories taught
Quiet town
Small time for big time crowd
Never talks
Never plays
Different path
Lost his way

The streets are red
Red I'm afraid
There's no confetti
No parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my god how it all dismays
And they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way"

I heard it
He said
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way"

Oh please wash away
But blood stains the sun red today

I always said
Something wrong
Little strange
All day long
Never laughed
Never smiled
Talked alone for miles and miles and miles

Yellow comes
Sun I say
Keep your smile and laugh all day
He falls again in this foreign place
For little boys how they do chase
And they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way"

I heard it
He said
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way"

Oh please wash away
But blood stains the sun red today, yeah

Yeah, well all the green things died
When Ronnie moved to this place
He said
"Don't you dare ask
Why I'm cursed to wear this face"
Now we all know why the children called him Ronnie frown
When he pulled that gun from his pocket
They all fall down, down, down

He said
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way," yeah, yeah

I heard it
He screamed
"Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way"

Oh please wash away
But blood stains the sun red today

All things wash away
They all fall down
But blood stains the sun today, yeah, yeah

All things wash away
They all fall down
But blood stains the sun today, yeah


The Outlaw Torn
(Hetfield, Ulrich)

You know I wait my whole lifetime for you
And now I wait my lifetime, oh, yeah

I ride the dirt I ride the tide for you
I search the outside search inside for you
To take back what you left me
I know I'll always burn to be
No one seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime
My whole lifetime
And I'm torn

So on I wait my whole lifetime for you
So on I wait my whole lifetime for you

The more I search the more my need for you
The more I blast the more I bleed for you
You make me smash the clock and feel
I'd rather die behind the wheel
Time was never on my side
So on I wait my whole lifetime
My whole lifetime
My whole lifetime
My whole lifetime

And I'm torn, hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open, see me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware, hear me
And when I start to come undone
Stick me together, see me
And when you see me stretched,
remind me of what left this outlaw torn

Hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open, see me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware, hear me
And when I start to come undone
Stick me together, see me
And when you see me stretched,
remind me of what left this outlaw torn

The Memory Remains
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains

Heavy rings on fingers wave
Another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd
cry the nowhere tears of honor

Like twisted vines that grow
Hide and swallow mansions whole
And dim the light of an already faded prima donna

Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains

Heavy rings hold cigarettes
Up to lips that time forgets
While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back

And can't the band play on
Just listen, they play my song
Ash to ash
Dust to dust
Fade to black

Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Dance little tin goddess

Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains

Dust to dust
Fade to black
The memories remain

The Unforgiven II
(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Lay beside me
Tell me what they've done
Speak the words I wanna hear
to make my demons run
The door is locked now,
but it's open if you're true
If you can understand the me,
then I can understand the you

Lay beside me
under wicked sky
The black of day,
dark of night
We share this paralyze
The door cracks open,
but there's no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still,
but there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining

[chorus:]
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

Yeah
What I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven too?
[end chorus]

Come lay beside me
This won't hurt, I swear
She loves me not,
she loves me still
But she'll never love again
She lay beside me,
but she'll be there when I'm gone
Black heart scarring darker still
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone
Dead sure she'll be there

[chorus]

Lay beside me,
tell me what I've done
The door is closed, so are your eyes
But now I see the sun
Now I see the sun
Yes, now I see it

What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

Yeah
What I've felt, what I've known
So sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits
The one who waits for you

Oh
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?
(So I dub thee unforgiven )

Oh, what I've felt
Oh, what I've known
I take this key
And I bury it in you
Because you're unforgiven too

Never free
Never me
'cause you're unforgiven too
Oh


Better Than You
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

I look at you, then you me
Hungry and thirsty I wait
Holding the lion's share
Holding the key
Holding me back 'cause I'm striving to be

Better than you (better than you)
Better than you (better than you)

Lock homes I push, and I strive
Somehow I feel more alive
Bury the need for it
Bury the seed
Bury me deep when there's no will to be

Better than you (better than you)
Oh Better than you (better than you)

Oh, can't stop this train from rollin'
Oh, yo, nothing brings me down
No, can't stop this train from rollin' on and on, on

Carpe Diem Baby
(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Hit dirt
Shake tree
Split sky
Part sea

Strip smile
Lose cool
Bleed the day
And break the rule

Live to win
Dare to fail
Eat the dirt
And bite the nail

Then make me miss you
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Draw lead
Piss wine
Missing teeth

Where The Wild Things Are
(Hetfield/Ulrich/Newsted)

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world

Steal dreams and give to you
Shop lift a thought or two
All children touch the sun
Burn fingers one by one
By one

Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war

Big eyes to open too
Believing now under sun and moon
But does heaven know you're here?
And did they give you smiles or tears?
No, no tears

Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war

You swing your ass all down
Call to arms, a trumpet's sound
Toy horses start the charge
Robots, chessmen standing guard
We shall never surrender

All you children touch the sun
Burn your fingers one by one

Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war
Off to war
Off to war

So close your little eyes


Prince Charming
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

There's a black cloud overhead
That's me
And the poison ivy chokes the tree
Again it's me
I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street
You walk on by
I'm the little boy that pushes hard
And makes it cry

There's a dirty needle in your child
Haha, stick me
Empty bottles still in hand, still dead
Still me
I'm the suit and tie that breaks the street
And still wants more
I'm the 45 that's in your mouth
I'm a dirty, dirty whore

Yeah
Look it's me
The one who can't be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see
Hey
Look it's me
When no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you wanna see
Hey ma
Hey ma, look it's me

Yeah
He wants to become father now
Me again, me
The marks inside your arms
still leaves me alone to me
I'm the nothing face that plants a bomb
And strolls away
I'm the one who doesn't look quite right
As children play

Yeah
Look it's me
The one who can't be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see
Hey
Look it's me
When no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you wanna see
Hey ma
Hey ma, look it's me
It's me

Look up to me
What you've been and what you've feared
Look up to me
Look it's me, what you hear
See right through me
See the one who can't be free
See right through me
Look it's me when no one wants to see

Hey, hey, hey

Hm, now see the black cloud overhead
That's me
Hm, in this poison ivy chokes the tree
Again it's me
And I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street
You walk on by
And I'm the little boy that pushes, pushes
Makes it cry

Yeah
Look it's me
The one who can't be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see
Hey, hey
Look it's me
When no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you wanna see
Hey ma
Hey ma, look it's me
Yeah
It's me

Hey ma, look it's me

See right though me
Look up to me
See right though me
Look up to me


Low Man's Lyric
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins
There's a dog at your back step
He must come in from the rain
I fall 'cause I let go
The net below has rot away
So my eyes seek reality
And my fingers seek my veins

[chorus:]
The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see
What I've let me be
So wicked and worn

So as I write to you
Of what is done and to do
Maybe you'll understand
And won't cry for this man
'cause low man is due

Please forgive me

My eyes seek reality
My fingers feel for faith
Touch clean with a dirty hand
I touched the clean to the waste

[chorus]

Please forgive me
Please forgive me
Please forgive me

So low the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

And I cry to the alleyway
Confess all to the rain
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror
The one I've broken to match my face

[chorus]

Please forgive me
Please forgive me

So low the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins


Attitude
(Hetfield/Ulrich)

Suppose I say
I'm never satisfied
Suppose I say
You cut some root
To make the tree survive

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once
I'm oh so bored to death

Oh, I hunger
I hunger
I eat

[chorus:]
Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And run like hell
Why cure the fever?
What ever happened to sweat?

Suppose I say
The vultures smile at me
Suppose I say
I set them down
They plan to pick you clean

And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone
Gone, yeah, and gone again

Oh, I hunger
Oh, I hunger
I eat

Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And stand there

[chorus]

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once for me
I'm bored to death

And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone
Gone, gone again

Yeah, I hunger
Oh, I hunger
I eat

Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And stand there

[chorus]


Fixxxer
(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Yeah
Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
One for each of us and our sins
So you lay us in a line
Push your pins, they make us humble
Only you can tell in time
If we fall or merely stumble

But tell me
Can you heal what father's done
Or fix this hole in a mother's son
Can you heal the broken worlds within
Can you strip away so we may start again
Tell me, can you heal what father's done
Or cut this rope and let us run
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me

Yeah
Mirror, mirror upon the wall
Break the spell or become the doll
See you sharpening the pins
So the holes will remind us
We're just the toys in the hands of another
And in time the needles turn from shine to rust

But tell me
Can you heal what father's done
Or fix this hole in a mother's son
Can you heal the broken worlds within
Can you strip away so we may start again
Tell me, can you heal what father's done
Or cut this rope and let us run
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Jab it

Blood for face
Sweat for dirt
Three X's for the stone
To break this curse
A ritual's due
I believe I'm not alone
Shell of shotgun
Pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins
Renew our faith which way we can
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love, to fall in love
To fall in love with life again

So tell me
Can you heal what father's done
Or fix this hole in a mother's son
Can you heal the broken worlds within
Can you strip away so we may start again
Yeah, tell me, can you heal what father's done
Or cut this rope and let us run
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Oh yeah

No more pins in me, yeah
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more, no more
No, no, no

It's Electric
(Diamond Head, 1980)

I'm gonna be a rock and roll star
Gotta groove from night to day
Gotta blow my crummy job
Gonna blow my blues away
I'm gonna make a stand
Gonna make a million
Gonna make it with you
I'm gonna be wild my friend
I gotta push it through

It's electric
It's electric
It's electric
It's electric

I stop on red and I leave on amber
And you face my way
I'm gonna make it my friend
Gonna make it today
Gonna get the tilts from my hills
Down the highway I go
Gonna get the stars from my route
Make it in a rock and roll show

It's electric
It's electric

It's electric

I stop on red and I leave on amber
And you face my way

Sabbra Cadabra
(Black Sabbath, 1973)

I feel so good, I feel so fine
I love my little lady, always on my mind
She gives me love every night and day
Never gonna leave her, never going away

Someone to love me, you know she makes me feel alright!
Someone to need me, love me every single day!

I feel so happy since I met that girl
When we're making love it's something out of this world
It feels so good to know that she's all mine
Gonna love that woman till the end of time

Someone to live for, I'll love her till the end of time!
She makes me feel happy, it's good to know that she's all mine

I am the world that hides
The universe of secret obtains
Destruction of the empty spaces
Here's my one and only prayer
I lived a thousand times
I found out what it means to be believed
The thoughts and images
The unborn child never was concieved
You gotta believe me!
Hey! I'm talkin' to you!
Well, I know it hard for you
To know the reason why
And I know you'll understand
When it's time to die
I don't believe the knife you have
Will be the only one
You have to let your body sleep
To let your soul live on, Ha Ha!!

Feel so happy since I met that girl
When we're making love, it's something out of this world
Feel so good to know that she's all mine
Gonna love that woman till the end of time

Someone to live for, love her till the end of time!
She makes me feel happy, it's good to know she's all mine,
She's all mine, yeah!


Turn The Page
(Bob Seger, 1973)

On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine moanin out it's one lone song
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before

But your thoughts will soon be wanderin', the way they always do
When you're ridin' 16 hours, there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was through

[chorus:]
Here i am, on the road again, here i am, up on the stage
Here i go, playin the star again, here i go, turn the page

So you walk into this restaurant, strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shakin off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode
Yeah most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
Of the same old cliche's, is it woman is it man
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand
Make your stand

[chorus]

Whoah, oh, out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy, you try to give away
And the sweat pours off your body, like the music that you play

Later in the evenin', as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes of the amplifires, ringin in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarett, rememberin' what she said
What she said.

[chorus]


Die, Die My Darling
(Danzig, The Misfits 1984)

Die, die, die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Just shut your pretty eyes

I'll be seeing you again
Yeah, I'll be seeing you in hell

So don't try to be a baby
Your future's in an oblong box
Don't try to be a baby
You should have seen it a-comin' on
Don't try to be a baby
Had to know it was in your power
Don't try to be a baby
Dead-end goal for a dead-end girl
Don't try to be a baby
And now your life drains on that floor
Don't try to be a baby

Die, die, die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Just shut your pretty mouth

I'll be seeing you again
I'll be seeing you in hell

Don't try to be a baby
Your future's in an oblong box
Don't try to be a baby
You should have seen it a-comin' on
Don't try to be a baby
Had to know it was in your power
Don't try to be a baby
Dead-end goal for a dead-end girl
Don't try to be a baby
Now your life drains on that floor
Don't try to be a baby

Die, die, die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Shut your pretty mouth

I'll be seeing you again
I'll be seeing you in hell

Die, die, die
Die, die, die
Die, die, die
Die...


Loverman
(Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, 1994)

There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls
There's a devil waiting outside your door
He's weak with evil and broken by the world
He's shouting your name and he's asking for more
There's a devil waiting outside your door

dress I'm coming down I'm your loverman
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for LOVE, baby
O is for ONLY you that I do
V is for loving VIRTUALLY all that you are
E is for loving almost EVERYTHING that you do

Loverman! Till the bitter end
While empires burn down Forever and ever
and ever and ever Amen I'm your loverman
So help me, baby So help me
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
I'll be your loverman!

There's a devil crawling along your floor
There's a devil crawling along your floor
With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door
With his straining sex in his jumping paw
There's a devil crawling along your floor
And he's old and he's stupid and
he's hungry and he's sore
And he's lame and he's blind
and he's dirty and he's poor
ive him more
There's a devil crawling along your floor

Loverman! Here I stand Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

And I got no choice No, I got no choice at all

What I am what I am I'm your loverman!

There's a devil lying by your side
You might think he's asleep
but look at his eyes
He wants you, baby, to be his bride
There's a devil lying by your side

Loverman! Loverman!


Mercyful Fate

Satan's Fall
They're walking by the night
The moon has frozen blue
Long black coats a shelter for the rain
Their load must get through
Now bats are leaving their trees
They're joining the call
Seven satanic Hell preachers
Heading for the hall
Bringing the blood of a newborn child
Got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall

Curse Of The Pharaohs
Away out in Egypt in the valley of kings
Where the mummified pharaohs
Pretend dead in their sleep
Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Just destroying your future
Makin' it all shady
Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

A Corpse Without Soul
Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll
And he took it on me
I, I'm trapped, I'm trapped
I'm trapped in his spell
Tonight, I'm going, I'm going
I'm going to Hell, inside his spell

Into The Coven
Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our high priestess
Come, come into my coven
And become Lucifer's child
Undress until you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross and go to the center of the ring
Come, come into my coven
And become Lucifer's child

Evil
I was born on the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
And I was made a mercenary
In the legions of Hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane
You know my only pleasure
Is to hear you cry
I'd love to hear you cry
I'd love to see you die
And I'll be the first
To watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave
I'd love to hear you cry
And when you're down beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind


Astronomy
(Blue Oyster Cult, 1974)

Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
His reason tends to fly away
Like lesser birds on the four winds
Like silver scrapes in May
And now the sand's become a crust
Most of you have gone away

Come Susie dear, let's take a walk
Just out there upon the beach
I know you'll soon be married
And you'll want to know where winds come from
Well it's never said at all
On the map that Carrie reads
Behind the clock back there you know
At the Four Winds Bar

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Four winds at the Four Winds Bar
Two doors locked and windows barred
One door to let to take you in
The other one just mirrors it

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hellish glare and inference
The other one's a duplicate
The Queenly flux, eternal light
Or the light that never warms
Yes the light that never, never warms
Or the light that never
Never warms
Never warms
Never warms

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Miss Carrie nurse and Susie dear
Would find themselves at Four Winds Bar

It's the nexus of the crisis
And the origin of storms
Just the place to hopelessly
Encounter time and then came me

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Call me Desdinova
Eternal light
These gravely digs of mine
Will surely prove a sight
And don't forget my dog
Fixed and consequent

Astronomy...a star


Whiskey in the Jar
(Traditional, Thin Lizzy, 1972)

As I was going over the Cork and Kerry Mountains
I saw Captain Farrell, and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said "Stand and deliver, or the devil he may take ya"

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money, yeah, and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she loved me, no, never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman, yeah, for you know she tricked me easy

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber
Takin' my Molly with me, but I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up, fired my pistols, and I shot him with both barrels

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ha, ya
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Yeah, whiskey, yo, whiskey...
Oh-oh, ya

Now some men like a fishin', but some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear, to hear the cannonball a-roarin'
But me, I like sleepin', `specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain, yeah

Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ha, ya
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Whiskey in the jar-o
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, hey
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da
Musha rain dum-a-doo dum-a-da, ya.


Tuesday's Gone
(Lynyrd Skynyrd, 1973)

Train roll on, on down the line
Won't you please take me far away
Now, I feel the wind blow outside my door
I leave my woman at home

Tuesday's gone with the wind
My baby's gone with the wind

And I don't know oh where I'm going
I just want to be left alone
When this train ends, I'll try again
I leave my woman at home

Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
My baby's gone with the wind

Train roll on

Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
My baby's gone with the wind

Train roll on, many miles from my home
See, I'm riding my blues away
Tuesday, you see, she had to be free
But somehow, I've got to carry on

Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
Tuesday's gone with the wind
My baby's gone with the wind


The More I See
(Discharge, 1984)

From where I stand I see
Pain suffering and misery

The more I see the more I see
The less the less I believe

From where I stand I see
Hate violence and war

The more I see the more I see
The less the less I believe

No Leaf Clover

(Hetfield/Ulrich)

And it feels right this time
On this crash course we're in the big time
Pay no mind to the distant thunder

Beauty fills his head with wonder, boy....

Says it feels right this time
Turn around, found new high lights
Good day to be alive Sir
Good day to be alive, he said.....

Then it comes to be that the soothing light
at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light
at the end of your tunnel
Was just the freight train coming your way

Don't it feel right like this
All the pieces fall to his wish
Suck up for that quick reward boy
Suck up for that quick reward they said.....

Then it comes to be that the soothing light
at the end of your tunnel
is just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light
at the end of your tunnel
is just the freight train coming your way......
It's coming your way
It's coming your way......
Here comes

Was just a freight train coming your way.... Yeah...
