The End of the Line

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo
Need... more and more
Tainted misery
Bleed... battle scars
Chemical affinity
Reign... legacy
Innocence corrode
Stain... rot away
Catatonic overload

Choke... asphyxia
Snuff reality
Scorch... kill the light
Incinerate celebrity
Reaper... butchery
Karma amputee
Bloodline... redefine
Death contagious deity

        Hooked into this deceiver
        Need more and more
        Into the endless fever
        Need more and more
        
        New consequence machine
        You burn through all your gasoline
        Asylum overtime
        Nevermind...
        You've reached the end of the line

Time... Choke the clock
Steal another day
Die... Faithfully
Narcissistic fade away
Twisted... Jump the rail
Shatter the crowd below
Breaker... Chase the ghost
From latest high to all-time low

        Hooked into this deceiver
        Need more and more
        Into the endless fever
        Need more and more
        
        New consequence machine
        Burn through all your gasoline
        Asylum overtime
        Nevermind...
        You've reached the end of the line

Drop the hourglass of time
Spilling sand we will not find
As we gather here today
We bid farewell...
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master

The slave becomes the master
Need more and more
Right now and ever after
Need more and more

        New consequence machine
        Burn through all your gasoline
        Asylum overtime
        Nevermind...
        Dead hourglass of time
        Sand we will not ever find
        We gather here today
        Say goodbye
        Cause you've reached the end of the line
        The end of the line
        The end of the line
        The end of the line
        You've reached the end of the line
