Metallica Ride the Lightning Lyrics

Last updated: 04/05/2014 04:19:39 PM

Ride the Lightning
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Mustaine)



Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ain't right
There is someone else controlling me


Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me


Who made you God to say
"I'll take your life from you!"


Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame


Wait for the sign
To switch the flick of death
It's the beginning of the end


Sweat, chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness is my only friend


My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?


Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame


Someone help me
Oh please God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die


Time moving slow
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see


How true is this?
Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be


Wakened by horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream


Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame
