That Was Just Your Life

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo
Like a siren in my head that always
Threatens to repeat
Like a blind man that is strapped into the speeding driver's seat
Like a face
That learns to speak
When all it knew was how to bite

Like a misery that keeps me focused
Though I've gone astray
Like an endless nightmare that
I must awaken from each day
Like conviction
A premonition
Not worthy of, so I deny...... I deny

        I blind my eyes and try to force it all into place
        I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace
        I blind my eyes, I hide and feel it passing me by
        I open just in time to say goodbye

                Almost like your life
                Almost like your endless fight
                Curse the day is long
                Realize you don't belong
                Disconnect somehow
                Never stop the bleeding now
                Almost like your fight
                And there it went,
                Almost like your life

Like a wound that keeps on bleeding to remind me not to think
Like a raging river drowning when
I only need a drink
Like a poison
That I swallow
But I want the world to die

Like a release from prison
That I didn't know I was in
Like a fight to live the past I prayed
To leave
From way back then
Like a general
Without a mission
Until the war will start again...... start again

        I blind my eyes and try to force it all into place
        I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace
        I blind my eyes, I hide and feel it passing me by
        I open just in time to say goodbye

                Almost like your life
                Almost like your endless fight
                Curse the day is long
                Realize you don't belong
                Disconnect somehow
                Never stop the bleeding now
                Almost like your fight
                And there it went,
                Almost like your life

Like a touch from hell to feel how hot
That it can get if you get caught
Like a strike from heaven turns that key
And brings you straight down to your knees

Like a touch from hell to feel how hot
That it can get if I get caught
Like a strike from heaven to reprieve
That brings you straight down to your knees

                Almost like your life
                Almost like your endless fight
                Curse the day is long
                Realize you don't belong
                Disconnect somehow
                Never stop the bleeding now
                Almost like your fight
                And there it went,
                Almost like your life
                That was just your life
