Song Lyric Sunday ~ One

Last week I wrote about my difficulties concerning the topic of war and the song “Wrong Side of Heaven” by Five Finger Death Punch. I remembered another song that deals with the topic that I like. Metallica’s “ONE”.
I won’t write more about it. I think both songs speak for themselves.

Lyrics thanks to A-Z Lyrics

“One”

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 meNow 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 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

One thought on “Song Lyric Sunday ~ One

  1. Metallica is my brother’s favorite band and has been for a long time. I didn’t get it when I was younger, but the more I listen to them now, the more I like them. This one was hard to listen to today – I’ve been struggling a lot this week. But sometimes it’s good to just sink into t he pain and let it be. I find that when I do that, it somehow melts away much sooner. Thanks for sharing such amazing music, Bee!
