Battery

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

        Smashing through the boundaries
        Lunacy has found me
        Cannot stop the battery
        Pounding out aggression
        Turns into obsession
        Cannot kill the battery
        
        Cannot kill the family
        Battery is found in me
        
        Battery

Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
Never-ending potency
Hungry violence-seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

        Smashing through the boundaries
        Lunacy has found me
        Cannot stop the battery
        Pounding out aggression
        Turns into obsession
        Cannot kill the battery
        
        Cannot kill the family
        Battery is found in me
        
        Battery
        Battery

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery

        Smashing through the boundaries
        Lunacy has found me
        Cannot stop the battery
        Pounding out aggression
        Turns into obsession
        Cannot kill the battery
        
        Cannot kill the family
        Battery is found in me
        
        Battery
