Gimme fuel,
Gimme fire,
Gimme that which I desire,
Ooh!

Turn on...I see red
Adrenaline crash and crash my head
Nitro junkie, paint me dead
And I see red

One hundred plus through black and white
War horse, warhead
**** 'em man, white knuckles tight
Through black and white

Ohhh, on I burn,
Fuel is pumping engines,
Burning hard, loose and clean

And I burn,
Churning my direction,
Quench my thirst with gasoline

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

Hey

Turn on beyond the bone
Swallow future, spit out home
Burn your face upon the chrome
Yeah!

Take the corner, join the crash,
Headlights, headlines
Another junkie lives too fast
Yeah lives way too fast, fast, fast, oohh-aye

Ohhh, on I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean

And on I burn
Churning my direction,
Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel
Gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire

Yeah-heah

White knuckle tight!
(solo)

Gimme fuel...on I burn, on and on
Gimme fire...on I burn, on and on
My desire...

Ohhh, on I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean

And I burn
Churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Gimme fuel
Gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire
Ooh

On I burn!

Until It Sleeps (live)

length: 4:26
mixer: James “Jimbo” Barton
phonographic copyright (℗) by: Metallica
composer: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich
lyricist: James Hetfield
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 the curse, just like the 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)
Don't want it
I'll 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

I don't want it...NO
Want it
Want it
Want it
Want it
Want it
Nooooo

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

I'll 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

One (live)

length: 8:07
composer: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich
lyricist: James Hetfield
I can't remember anything
Can't tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel the scream
This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me
I'm waking up, I cannot see
That there's 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 it's much to real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can't look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a war time 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
Oh No, Oh No, Oh No!
God Help Me!
