Metallica Broken, Beat & Scarred Lyrics

Last updated: 08/16/2012 07:40:05 AM

You rise, you fall.
Your down then you rise again.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
You rise, you fall.
Your down then you rise again.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
Rise, fall, down, rise again.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
Rise, fall, down, rise again.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
Through black days, through black nights,
Through pitch black insights.


Breaking your teeth on the hard life a'coming.
Show, your, scars.
Cutting your feet on the hard earth a'running.
Show, your, scars.
Breaking your life, broken beat and scarred.
But we die hard!

The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
Dawn, death, fight, final breath.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
Dawn, death, fight, final breath.
What don't kill you make you more strong.
They scratch me, they scrape me,
they cut and rape me.

Breaking your teeth on the hard life a'coming.
Show, your, scars.
Cutting your feet on the hard earth a'running.
Show, your, scars.
Breaking your life, broken beat and scarred.
but we die hard!

Breaking your teeth on the hard life a'coming.
Show, your, scars.
Cutting your feet on the hard earth a'running.
Show, your, scars.
Raiding your soul in a hard luck story.
Show, your, scars.
Spilling your blood in a hot sun's a'glory.
Show, your, scars.
Breaking your life, broken beat and scarred.

We die hard
We die hard
We die hard

f**king awesome | Reviewer: Missing u clifford | 8/15/12

Cliff's death, drug abuse, alcoholism, James's family losses to cancer, Jason's departure Napster backlash, loss of some of the original fan-base due to "selling out"...(they have not sold out, however all of they're concerts have ;p)...the lyrics say it all. "You rise, you fall, you're down then you rise again. What don't kill ya make ya more strong. Ups and downs, ins and outs, rises and falls, Metallica is back to kick some ass with the heavy and earth-shaking masterpiece that is DEATH MAGNETIC!

Fantastic | Reviewer: Orion | 8/15/12

This song is based around Friedrich Nietzsche's aphorism "What does not kill me, makes me stronger" from his 1888 book "Twilight Of The Idols"

It basicly means never giving up till you die....only death can stop you from reaching ur goals, everything else just makes you stronger and every adversity, hurdle, failure etc just makes you more determined to reach ur goal.

life of metallica | Reviewer: khaled | 5/18/09

I think this song talks in a way or another about the life of metallica through years saying that they had there ups and downs but that didn't make weaker but more strong
metallica really got back to thier roots this time
