Cyanide

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo
Sleep and dream of this
Death angel's kiss
Brings final bliss
Completely

        Empty they say,
        Death, won't you let me stay?
        
        Empty they say,
        Death, hear me call your name,
        Call your name...

                ...suicide
                I've already died
                You're just the funeral
                I've been waiting for
                
                ...cyanide
                Living dead inside
                Break this empty shell forever more

Wait, wait patiently
Your death black wings
Unfolding sleep
Spreading o'er me

        Empty they say,
        Death, won't you let me stay?
        
        Empty they say,
        Death, hear me call your name,
        Call your name...

                ...suicide
                I've already died
                You're just the funeral
                I've been waiting for
                
                ...cyanide
                Living dead inside
                Break this empty shell forever more

Say, is that rain or are they tears?
That has stained your concrete face for years
The crying, weeping, shedding strife
Year after year, life after life

An air of freshly broken ground
A concrete angel lit right down
Upon the grave which swallows fast
It's peace at last, peace at last!

        Empty they say,
        Death, won't you let me stay?
        
        Empty they say,
        Death, hear me call your name,
        Call your name...

                ...suicide
                I've already died
                You're just the funeral
                I've been waiting for
                
                ...cyanide
                Living dead inside
                Break this empty shell forever more
                
                Forever more,
                Forever more
                It's just the funeral
                I've been waiting for
