Metallica Cyanide Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2013 09:13:22 AM

Sleep, and dream of this -
Death angel's kiss
Brings final bliss

Empty, they say,
"Death, won't you
Let me stay?"
Empty, they say,
"Death, hear me call your name."
(Ooh! Call your name.)

I've already died.
It's just the funeral I've been waiting for.
Living dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore.

[break/repeat guitar intro]

Wait. Wait patiently.
Your death black wings
Unfolding sleep
Spreading o'er me.

[Repeat Chorus]


Say, is that rain or are they tears
That stained your concrete face for years?
The crying, weeping, shedding strife
Year after year, life after life?

An air of freshly broken ground
A concrete angel lit right down
Upon the grave which swallows fast,
It's peace at last, hey, peace at last!

[solo/repeat intro]

[repeat chorus]

Forever more (and end this war).
Forever more (and end this war).
You're just the funeral I've been waiting for.

death magnetic | Reviewer: vishrut | 8/30/13

death magnetic has the most weird lyrics of all studio albums. They play this song, all nightmare long,broken beat and scarred at each performance. Not sure if they are that good. I think they should play more songs from Load and kill em' all. Don't get me wrong here, i just feel that the lyrics are a bit off. That's it. All the songs are awesome.

SLEEP AND DREAM OF THIS | Reviewer: Abyss | 8/4/11

This song is actually happy and hopeful because there is a SOLUTION to the pain of life. The empty oblivion of death is something to look forward to.
It's like a love song:
That probably sounds sick to people looking for "traditional" inspiration, but those who've decided to do the dirty deed often feel a sense of peace.

Killer Track | Reviewer: BMF | 5/1/09

This track has it all... the signature Metallica heaviness, combined with tempo changes and powerful lyrics. Kirk's riffs in this song make it almost impossible not to move your body while you listen, and the tremendous sound will have you bobbing your head along as you listen. James's vocals are powerul and almost soothing throughout. One of their best.

Excellent Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/27/09

What I love about this song is all the tempo changes, among some of the things thatstands out to me in this song is that killer solo, one of the best solos in the album, not to mention Jame's aggresive voice throught the track. This one has it all.
