Fight Fire with Fire
(Hetfield / Ulrich / Hammett)
 Duración 4'44''

Letra:

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 dieTime is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon is here, like said in the past

chorus:
	Fight fire with fire
	Ending is near 
	Fight fire with fire
	Bursting with fear

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

chorus:
	Fight fire with fire
	Ending is near 
	Fight fire with fire
	Bursting with fear

Ride the Lightning
(Hetfield / Ulrich)
 Duración 6'36''

Letra:

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:
               Flash before my eyes
               Now it's time to die
               Burning in my brain
               I can feel the flames
 
       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:
               Flash before my eyes
               Now it's time to die
               Burning in my brain
               I can feel the flames

For Whom the Bell Tolls
(Hetfield / Ulrich)
 Duración 5'10''

Origen:
La canción está inspirada en la película del mismo nombre.

Letra:

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, by who's to say?
For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know
Suffered wounds test there 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:
	For whom the bell tolls
	Time marches on
 	For whom the bell tolls

Fade to Black
(Hetfield / Ulrich / Hammett)
 Duración 6'56''



Letra:

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 to 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 good-bye

Trapped Under Ice
(Hetfield / Ulrich / Hammett)
 Duración 4'03''

Letra:

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)
 Duración 4'23''



Letra:

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: 
              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

               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)
 Duración 6'32''

Letra:
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 nile
Plague
Darkness three days long, hail to fire

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

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 flood final darkness
Blood
Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass

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
