Blackened
(Hetfield / Ulrich / Hammett)
 Duración 6'40''



Letra:

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

Bustering 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)
 Duración 9'44''



Letra:

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

Eye Of The Beholder
(Hetfield / Ulrich / Hammett)
 Duración 6'25''



Letra:

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

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 
   Choice is mad for you my friend
   Freedom of speech
   Speech is words that they will bend
   Freedom with their exception

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 selfishlie

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 
   Choice is mad for you my friend
   Freedom of speech
   Speech is words that they will bend
   Freedom with their exception

Do you know what i know?
Your money end your wealth
Your silence just to hear your self
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 
   Choice is mad for you my friend
   Freedom of speech
   Speech is words that they will bend
   Freedom with their exception

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)
 Duración 7'24''

Letra:

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

Uno
(Hetfield / Ulrich)


Letra:


No puedo acordarme de nada
No sé si esto es verdad o un sueño
Muy dentro de mí me apetece gritar
Este silencio terrible me lo impide
Ahora que la guerra a acabado conmigo
Me estoy despertando, no puedo ver
Que no queda gran cosa de mí
Nada es real mas que el dolor ahora

Aguanto la respiración mientras deseo la muerte
Oh dios por favor, despiértame

De vuelta en el útero es demasiado real
Entra a borbotones la vida que debo sentir
Pero no puedo mirar adelante para descubrir
Miro hacia el momento en que viviré
Alimentado a través del tubo que cuelga de mí
Igual que una curiosidad de la guerra
Atado a maquinas que me hacen ser
Apaga y quítame esta vida

Aguanto la respiración mientras deseo la muerte
Oh dios por favor, despiértame

Ahora el mundo se ha ido solo soy uno
Oh dios, ayúdame
Aguanto la respiración mientras deseo la muerte
Oh dios por favor, despiértame

Oscuridad....... me encarcela
Todo lo que ves
Un horror absoluto
No puedo vivir
No puedo morir
Atrapado en mi mismo
Mi cuerpo es mi celda

Mina......... me ha quitado la vista
Quitado el habla
Quitado el oído
Quitado los brazos
Quitado las piernas
Quitado el alma
Me ha dejado con vida en el infierno

The Shortest Straw
(Hetfield / Ulrich)
 Duración 6'35''



Letra:

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 youIt'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 fallaout 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)
 Duración 5'42''



Letra:

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)
 Duración 7'40''



Letra:

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)
 Duración 9'48''



Letra:

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)
 Duración 5'12''



Letra:

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
