To Live Is to Die Lyrics - Metallica

Review The Song (63)



When a man lies he murders
Some part of the world
These are the pale deaths
Which men miscall their lives
All this I cannot bear
To witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation
Take me home

Not to mention.. | Reviewer: MoGerrrr | 10/8/13

Not every single living person will agree with me, when I say. justice for record is the most strongest release of metallica at all time..
But it is..
Looking back at hetfields parents history, and what that poor kid had to go through without "his loved one", read the context of justice, and you will burst into tears.
Its not without a reason "To Live is to Die" was the second last song on this album, and the "opening" from his heart on the dyers eve, wich is the last song on the album "CRY IT OUT!"
This album is more about the "lost" childhood of hetfield, the songwriter, the history, his anger, and it all came out on this album, hence ..and justice for all.

The true "Solo" album.


(Spell Checked) One of the greatest.......... | Reviewer: Steve Dorsey | 9/3/13

Metallica songs of all times. I was 14 when ......AJFA came out, and it literally changed my life, it changed my taste in music that day and from then on. I had never heard anything like it, the clarity, the popping and snapping of the drums, the depth. I am now 38 and listened to it on the way to work this morning. I cant help but still bang my head and come unglued from the seat on the way here. 24 years later!! What other album can you say has done that? I have none. To live is to die! Its a symphony, its a dark symphony. Its perfect. They haven't done anything as well since but I dont believe anyone could. Its just perfect. It really did change my direction in music and probably my life, it came out at the most confusing and crazy time in a young mans life. I got to see Metallica Live in DC during the summer sanitarium tour, not sure what year. And they played almost ALL of their older stuff, to which I was the biggest fan of. Everyone I went with didn't know any of it and said "man I wish they would play some of their newer stuff" and I just kept tapping my feet to the drums and banging my shaved head (Mush different then 1989). Those of us who really know Metallica know damn well they didn't sell out. They grew up, I grew up with them, nothing stays the same, just be damn glad they made the albums you love or who knows what other music we would have missed because of it!! Imagine the bands that were inspired by Metallica!?!? Imagine if all we still had was the other "Metal" bands that were branded the name "METAL" by some freakin corporate dipshit. "Brittany Fox", "Poison", "Winger", basically crap, puke, vomit with big hair and no talent. Metallica was ALL that came out of the 80's that was true Heavy Metal, I think they defined the genre at the time, and still do. I am not crazy about the new stuff, flat out don't like most of it. But like I said, things change, nothing remains the same, and when you have created perfection as they did in many songs off of ....AJFA, Master of Puppets, Ride the Ltning and Kill em all, pardon the lackluster cliche', there is nowhere to go but down. That is my homage to Metallica, a fan for 24 years, and the rest I have left.

sellout NOT | Reviewer: Zakk | 2/9/12

this goes directly to 'tim' they didn't sellout, yeah they might have changed their musical direction a little bit (mainly bob rocks fault, he should have gone after the black album), but still, they stayed true to who they were and eventually found their way back to their thrash roots.

The 4:30 Mark | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/6/11

Just listen to "To Live is To Die" from the 4:30 point and feel how many deep-down emotions it makes surface..Pain,remorse,loss,guilt,suppressed anger to name a few. This part of the instrumental is one of the most disturbing yet beautiful moments of music one can experience!

Life Death and the Persuit of Excalibur | Reviewer: dishonorisdeath | 8/3/11

The guy is right if your not damaged you will never see the world they way we do some ppl see beauty and peace in eternal rest some see fear but no one has the right to criticize another because of how they view the world or how they write their music if lamb of god started writing country i would hate it but i wouldent bash them for what they want to write and to all who say post cliff metallica sold out get a clue ppl when a band member dies or leaves the whole dynamic changes and with it the music thats not selling out thats life

Same old song and dance. | Reviewer: YourMaker | 1/22/11

All i hear is the same shit about metallica...oohh they sold out, there new bassist isnt shit blah blah blah. you fuck heads want to have a opinion then go write yourself a fucking "metal" album and see how far you get compaired to metallica. morons

Oliver Cromwell | Reviewer: Silverwinge | 1/21/11

Shoulderfist@ Because he didn't bloody care ;). Rock/metal wasn't created as a new style it was a personal style rather than a way to put yourself in a certain group. People tends to forget that. None got long hair because everyone else had it.

Metal Music | Reviewer: Poison22 | 1/15/11

People who don't understand the metal, talks stupid like you guys do. But thats normal that you can't understand it. Because metal is a diffrent world, a diffrent life... Metal will be your favorite genre of music, if you get your soul damaged in your life... By soul damage i mean if you had hard times in your life... Metallica been through alot of things, and after the death of Cliff Burton, band changed alot. Listen to their songs before Cliff and after Cliff carefully... You will see the diffrence...

better than Orion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/29/10

Probably, the deepest song form the "Justice" album. It is an eerie instrumental with a bone-chilling poem cited by Hetfield. The main message is that the world is losing its beauty, due to people lying to others and themselves. The person can't cope with it, and hopes that in death they would finally be free of this lie.

did you guys ever think that maybe the music changes because they went through changes in their lives? every band goes through changes so does that mean theyre all sellouts? no. so stop talking crap about how they changed. hey they have kids, they had to stop drinking, it happened. so stop crying in the corner because they got a little bit less metal

yey metallica♥ | Reviewer: merlín | 11/2/10

if metallica wants to try another type of music, ITS UP TO THEM, MOTHERFUCKERS. they don't do music for you, they write music for themselves. so fuck off; if you like it, listen to it; if you don't like it, DON'T. each of us has different opinions about this song or that album, but respect their music. you aren't less fan for not liking it, but yes for disrepecting it, clearly.

btw, THIS SONG IS FREAKING AWESOME. the lyrics and the music, it's like i'm in peace listening to this thing. ♥ love it so much.

metallica | Reviewer: tim | 10/18/10

this review is to joe. what you are saying is that you are only a true fan if you listen to everything the band puts out no matter how bad it sounds. Whether you want to admit it or not, metallica did sellout. Not because they cut their hair but because their music changed. Listen to kill em all and ride the lightning and then listen to the black album or st. anger. I love metallica, but once cliff died, they just lost their touch.

Metallica Gay...Sellout? | Reviewer: Joe | 9/23/10

Ok if your one of these people stating metallica sucks and that they sold out and this an that than you are not a true fan. A true fan stays with his band till the end. He respects change, and the new direction that the band went in. So they cut their fucking hair, so do i and so does everybody else in the world. We all go through phases. Real fans will never leave and will respect where the band goes in my opinion

Hell yeah! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/7/10

This song is fucking epic. I also got the biggest shock of my life in the end of the song when Dyers Eve suddenly started.
Well, talking about favorite bassists from Metallica, I would say Cliff was the best, then Jason, and then Rob. Of course, Cliff is, was and will be the greatest bassist ever. But, I really miss Jason, because he had fucking great vocals. Rob is good, too, but he doesn't fit in with the other members of Metallica. That's why.
I would say, Metallica were best in 1985-1986 and 1989-1990, But the new albums isn't bad.
