Death Magnetic Lyrics

Submitted by level Mefisto
1. That Was Just Your Life (7:08)
Like a siren in my head that i was placed to repeat,
Like a blind man that was shoved into the speeding driver's seat,
Like a face that learned to speak, when all it knew was how to fight,
Like a misery that keeps me from just going out astray,
Like an illness that I'm about to waken from its state.

Contradiction,
A premonition,
Now are the aids who i deny,
I deny.

I blind my eyes and try to force it all into place,
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace.
I blind my eyes, i hardly feel it passing me by,
I open just in time to say goodbye.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Cursed, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop the bleeding now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

[Solo]

Like a bullet, keeps on bleeding to remind me not to think,
Like a raging river, drowning when i only need a drink,
Like a poison that i swallow, but i want the world to die.

Like a release from a prison that i didn't know i was in,
Like a fight to live the present, i pictured it like this,
Like a general without a mission until the wars start again,
Start again.

I blind my eyes and try and force it all into place,
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace.
I blind my eyes, i hardly feel it passing me by,
I open just in time to say goodbye.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Cursed, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop complaining now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

Like a touch from hell,
I feel how hot that it can get if you get caught,
Like a strike from heaven that turns that key,
That brings you straight down to your knees,
Like a touch from hell,
I feel how hot that it can get if i get caught,
Like a strike from heaven to reprieve,
That brings you straight down to your knees.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Cursed, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop complaining now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.
That was just your life.
2. The End of the Line (7:52)
Need... More and more
Tainted misery
Bleed... Battle scars
Chemical affinity

Reign... Legacy
Innocence corrode
Stain... Rot away
Catatonic overload

Choke... Asphyxia
Snuff reality
Scorch... Kill the light
Incinerate celebrity

Reaper... Butchery
Karma amputee
Bloodline... Redefine
Death contagious deity

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more

New consequence machine
You burn through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime
Nevermind... You've reached the end of the line

Time... Choke the clock
Steal another day
Die... Faithfully
Narcissistic fade away

Twisted... Jump the rail
Shatter the crowd below
Breaker... Chase the ghost
From latest high to alltime low

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more

New consequence machine
You burn through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime
Nevermind... You've reached the end of the line

Drop the hourglass of time
Spilling sand we will not find
As we gather here today
We bid farewell...
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master yeah!

The slave becomes the master
Need more and more
Right now and everafter
Need more and more

New consequence machine
Burn through all your gasoline
Asylum over time
Nevermind...
Dead hourglass of time
Sand we will not ever find
We gather here today

Say goodbye
Coz you've reached the end of the line
The end of the line
The end of the line
The end of the line

You've reached the end of the line
3. Broken, Beat & Scarred (6:25)
You rise, you fall, you're down then you rise again,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong,
Rise, fall, down, rise again,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong.

Rise, fall, down, rise again,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong,
Rise, fall, down, rise again,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong.

Through black days, through black nights,
Through pitch black insides.

CHORUS:
Breakin' your teeth on the hard life a'comin,
(Show your scars)
Cuttin' your feet on the hard earth running
(Show your scars)
Breakin' your life, broken beat and scarred,
But we die hard.

The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong,
Dawn, death, fight, final breath,
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong.

They scratch me, they scrape me,
They cut and rape me.

CHORUS

We die hard.
We die hard.
4. The Day That Never Comes (7:56)
Born to push you around
You better just stay down
You pull away
He hits the flesh
You hit the ground
Mouths so full of lies
Tend to black your eyes
Just keep them closed
Keep praying
Just keep waiting

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
but the sunshine never comes
No the sunshine never comes

Push you cross that line
Just stay down this time
Hide in yourself
Crawl in yourself
You'll have your time
God I'll make them pay
Take it back one day
I'll end this day
I'll splatter color on this grave

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
but the sunshine never comes
No the sunshine never comes

Love is a four letter word
And never spoken here
Love is a four letter word
Here in this prison
I suffer this no longer
I put it into
This I swear!
This I swear!
The sun will shine
This I swear!
This I swear!
This I swear!
5. All Nightmare Long (7:57)
Luck. Runs. Out.
Crawl from the wreckage one more time
Horrific memory twists the mind
Dark, rutted, cold and hard to turn
Path of destruction feel & burn

Still life... Incarnation
Still life... Infame
Hallucination
Heresy
Still you run, what's to come
Cause we...

Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long

Luck. Runs. Out.
You crawl back in
But your luck runs out
Luck. Runs. Out.

The light that is not light is here
To flush you out with your own fear
You hide, you hide but will be found
Release your grip without a sound

Still life... Immolation
Still life... Infamy
Hallucination
Heresy
Still you run, what's to come next to me
Cause we...

Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long

Luck. Runs. Out.
You crawl back in but your luck runs out

When you crawl back in
Into your obsession
Never to return
This is your confession

Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long

Luck. Runs. Out.
You crawl back in but your luck runs out
Your luck runs out
6. Cyanide (6:39)
Sleep and dream of this
Death angel's kiss
Brings final bliss
Don't believe it!

Empty, are they?
Death, won't you let me stay?
"Empty!" they say
Death wants to call your name
Ooh, call your name!

Suicide! I've already died!
It's just the funeral I've been waiting for
Cyanide! Feeling dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore

Wait, wait patiently
Pure death, black wings
On soaring sleep
Spreading for me!

"Empty!" they say
Death, won't you let me stay?
"Empty!" they say
Death, hear me call your name!
Ooh, call your name!

Suicide! I've already died!
It's just the funeral I've been waiting for
Cyanide! Feeling dead inside!
Break this empty shell forevermore

Hey is that rain or are they tears?
That stained your concrete face for years
Crying, weeping, shedding strife
Year after year
Life after life

And in the freshly broken ground
A concrete angel laid right down
A calm anew that's swallowed fast
It's peace at last,
Oh peace at last!

"Empty!" they say
Death, won't you let me stay?
"Empty!" they say
Death, hear me call your name!
Ooh, call your name!

Suicide! I've already died!
It's just the funeral I've been waiting for
Cyanide! Feeling dead inside!
Break this empty shell forevermore

Forevermore!
Forevermore!
It's the funeral I've been waiting for!
7. The Unforgiven III (7:46)
How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?
Set sail to sea but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure

Was he the one causing pain
With his careless dreaming?
Been afraid
Always afraid
Of the things he's feeling
He could just be gone

He would just sail on
He would just sail on

How can I be lost?
If I've got nowhere to go?
Searched the seas of gold
How come it's got so cold?
How can I be lost
In remembrance I relive
How can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

These days drift on inside a fog
It's thick and suffocating
This seeking life outside its hell
Inside intoxicating
He's run aground
Like his life
Water's much too shallow
Slipping fast
Down with the ship
Fading in the shadows now
A castaway

Blame
All gone
Away

Blame gone away

How can I be lost
If I've got nowhere to go?
Search for seas of gold
How come it's got so cold?
How can I be lost
In remembrance I relive
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me, why can't I forgive me?

Set sail to sea but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure
How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever

How can I be lost
If I've got nowhere to go?
Search for seas of gold
How come it's got so cold?
How can I be lost
In remembrance I relive
So how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?
8. The Judas Kiss (8:00)
When the world has turned its back
When the days have turned pitch black
When the fear
When the fire's dead and gone

So what now?
Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done
When you are the ostracized
Selfish ridden dead goodbyes
Twisting of the tourniquet
When the pieces never fit

So what now?
Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done

Bow down
Sell your soul to me
I will set you free
Pacify your demons

Bow down
Surrender unto me
Submit infectiously
Sanctify your demons
Into abyss
You don't exist
Cannot resist
The Judas Kiss

When the storm has blacked your sky
Intuition crucify
When the ego strips your reign
Assasinate the living flame

So what now?
Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done
Venom of a life insane
Bites into your fragile veins

Internalize and decimate
Patronize and complicate

So what now?
Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done

Bow down
Sell your soul to me
I will set you free
Pacify your demons

Bow down
Surrender unto me
Submit infectiously
Sanctify your demons
Into abyss
You don't exist
Cannot resist
The Judas Kiss

Judas lives inside this vow
I've become your new god now


Follow you from dawn of time
Whisper thoughts into your mind

Watched your towers hit the ground
Lured the children never found
Helped your kings abuse their crown

In the heart of evil man
Plant the seeds of my own plan
Strong and powerful will fall
Find a piece of me in all

Inside you all so bow down
Sell your soul to me
I will set you free
Pacify your demons

Bow down
Surrender unto me
Submit infectiously
Sanctify your demons
Into abyss
You don't exist
Cannot resist
The Judas Kiss
9. Suicide & Redemption (9:57)
Instrumental
10. My Apocalypse (5:02)
Claustrophobic, Crawl out of this skin
High Explosive, Reach and pull that pin
Fear Thy Name: Extermination
Desecrating hail of fire

So we cross that line
Into the crypt; Total eclipse
Suffer unto My Apocalypse

Deadly Vision, Prophecy reveal
Death Magnetic, Pulling closer still
Fear Thy Name: Annihilation
Desolating hail of fire

So we cross that line
Into the crypt; Total eclipse
Suffer unto My Apocalypse

My Apocalypse

Crushing Metal ripping skin
Tossing body mannequins
Spilling blood bleeding gas

Mangled flesh snapping spines
Dripping bloody valentine
Shattered face spitting glass

Split apart
Split apart
Split apart
Split

Spit it out

What makes me drift a little bit closer
Dead man takes the steering wheel
What makes me know what time to cross over
Want to repeat until I feel

See through the skin the bones they are rattled
Future and past that disagree
Flesh falls away the bones they all shatter
Pass time to see the end in me

See the end in me

Claustrophobic, climb out of this skin
High explosive, reach and pull that pin

Violate; annihilate
Lose into my eyes
Obliterate; exterminate
If not accept; deny

Fear thy name as hell awakens
Destiny in hail of fire

So we cross that line
Into the crypt; total eclipse
Suffer unto my apocalypse

Tyrants awaken my apocalypse
Demon awaken my apocalypse
Heaven awaken my apocalypse
Suffer forever my apocalypse
