Fuel (Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Gimme fuel, Gimme fire, Gimme that which I desire

Oh, Yeah!

Turn on, I see red

Adrenaline crash and crack my head

Nitro junkie, paint me dead

And I see red

I run across through black and white

War horse

War head

Fuck 'em, man

White knuckle tight

Through black and white

Oh

When I burn

Fuel is pumping engines

Burning hard

Loose and clean

Oh

And then I burn

Turning my direction

Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel, Gimme fire, Gimme that which I desire

Turn on beyond the bone

Swallow future, spit out hope

Burn your face upon the chrome

Take the corner, going to crash

Headlights

Headlines

Another junkie, who lives too fast

Yeah

Lives way too fast, fast, fast, fast, fast, fast

White knuckle tight

Gimme fuel

Gimme fire

My desire

On I burn

 

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

Drift away

Fade away

Little tin goddess

Ash to ash

Dust to dust

Fade to black

Ash to ash

Dust to dust

Fade to black

The memories remain

Yeah

To this faded prima donna

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dance little tin goddess dance

(Say yes - at least say hello)

(Say yes - at least say hello)

 

Devil's Dance (Hetfield/Ulrich)

Yeah

I feel you too

Feel

Those things you do

In your eyes I see a fire that burns

To free the you

That's running through

Deep inside you know

Seeds I plant will grow

One day you will see

And dare to come down to me

Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance

That's right

Let's dance

Snake

I am the snake

Tempting

That bite you take

Let me make your mind

Leave yourself behind

Be not afraid

I've got what you need

Hunger I will feed

One day you will see

And dare to come down to me

Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance

Haha

Come dance

Yeah, come dancing

One day you will see

And dare to come down to me

Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance

Mm, it's nice to see you here

Haha

 

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

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?

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

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

 

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 deep forest

Bury the sea

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 rolling

Oh, yo, nothing brings me down

No, can't stop this train from rolling on and on, on

No, no, forever on and on

Oh, can't stop this train from rolling

Oh, yo, you can't take it down

No, never stop this locomotion on and on and on

No, no, you can't bring me down 'cause I'm

Better than you (better than you)

Better than you (better than you)

Oh better than you (better than you)

Much better than you

Slither (Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Don't go looking for snakes

You might blind them

Haven't I seen you here before?

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

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

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

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

Yeah

It's me

Hey ma

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

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

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

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

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

Born into attitude

Twist mother tongue

Throw all your bullets in the fire

And run like hell

Why cure the fever?

What ever happened to sweat?

Yeah, I hunger

Oh, I hunger

I eat

 

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

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

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
