Metallica Carpe Diem Baby Lyrics

Last updated: 10/20/2012 01:40:49 PM

Hit dirt, shake tree
Split sky, part sea
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Live to win, dare to fail
Eat the dirt and bite the nail

Then make me miss you
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Draw lead, piss wine
Sink teeth, all mine
Stoke fire, break neck
Suffer through this, cheat on death
Hug the curve, lose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you
ou yeah
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Yeah suck it!!!

Live to win, dare to fail
Eat dirt, bite the nail
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Hug the curve, loose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you
Come on, come on
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day

Come make me miss you

Come carpe diem baby

Common, seize the day motto is just a first layer.

"Then make me miss you, It don't feel good until it hurts, Come squeeze and suck the day, Come carpe diem baby, Yeah suck it!!!"

The song is titled carpe diem *baby*, he is talking to her, inviting. It's obviosuly highly sexual and confrontational.

Great song | Reviewer: MR.Weird | 1/23/09

Great song one of my first metallica songs that i heard.I listened this song like 1000 times and found a little joke. You can tread the name as a anagram and then you get (Carpe diem baby)=(Cream pied baby) lol. ^^

Great | Reviewer: Michael | 1/14/09

I've never listened to this song but I've always lived by a 'carpe diem' motto since I saw Dead Poet's Society in my freshman year of high school. This song is the epitome of that sentiment, showing just what Hetfield and Ulrich believed Carpe Diem to mean. Carpe diem means "sieze the day" in Latin, for those who didn't know, and in DPS it describes that as "sucking the marrow out of life" which explains the line "suck the day."
