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
Nananananana nananada nananananana nanananadana
Nananananana nananada nananananana nanananadana
Drift away
Fade away
Little tin goddess
Ash to ash
Dust to dust
Fade to black
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains
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
Nananananana nananada nanananana nanananadana
Nananananana nananada nanananana nanananadana
Rararararara rararara rarararara dararararara (Say yes - at least say
hello)
Rararararara rararara rarararara dararararara (Say yes - at least say
hello)
Rararararara rararara rarararara


The Outlaw Torn (Unencumbered by Manufacturing Restrictions version)

length: 10:49
producer: Bob Rock, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich
mixer: Mike Fraser
composer: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich
lyricist: James Hetfield
And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you
And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you

I ride the dirt I ride the tide
For you
I search the outside search inside
For you

To take back what you left me
I know I'll always burn to be
The one who seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime

I'm outlaw torn
I'm outlaw torn
And I'm torn

So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you
So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you

The more I search the more my need
For you
The more I bless the more I bleed
For you

You make me smash the clock and feel
I'd rather die behind the wheel
Time was never on my side
So on I wait my whole lifetime

I'm outlaw torn
I'm outlaw torn
I'm outlaw torn
And I'm torn

Hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stich me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn

Hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stich me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn

lyricist: James Hetfield
Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold
Dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things youve chased
Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but theres no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castles crumbled and youre left with just a name
Wheres your crown, king nothing?
Wheres your crown?

Hot and cold
Bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Yeah! are you satisfied?
Wish I might, wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things youve chased
Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but theres no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castles crumbled and youre left with just a name
Wheres your crown, king nothing?
Wheres your crown?

Huh!

(spoken)
Wish I may, wish I might
Have this wish, I wish tonight
I want that star, I want it now
I want it all and I dont care how

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish you may regret it
Careful what you wish you just may get it

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but theres no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castles crumbled and youre left with just a name
Wheres your crown, king nothing?
Wheres your crown?

Oh, youre just nothing
Wheres your crown king nothing?
Oh, youre just nothing
Absolutely nothing
Off to never, never land
