Whiplash

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Late at night, all systems go
You've come to see the show
We do our best, you're the rest
You make it real, you know
There is a feeling deep inside
That drives you fuckin' mad
A feeling of a hammerhead
You need it oh so bad

        Adrenaline starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

Bang your head against the stage
Like you never did before
Make it ring, make it bleed
Make it really sore
In a frenzied madness
With your leathers and your spikes
Heads are bobbing all around
It's hot as hell tonight

        Adrenaline starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

Here on stage the Marshall noise
Is piercing through your ears
It kicks your ass, kicks your face
Exploding feeling nears
Now's the time to let it rip
To let it fuckin' loose
We're gathered here to maim and kill
'Cause this is what we choose

        Adrenaline starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

The show is through, the metal's gone
It's time to hit the road
Another town, another gig
Again we will explode
Hotel rooms and motorways
Life out here is raw
But we'll never stop
We'll never quit
'Cause we're Metallica

        Adrenaline starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
