The Judas Kiss

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo
When the world has turned its back
When the days have turned pitch black
When the fear abducts your tongue
When the fire's dead and gone

        So, what now?
        Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done
When you are the ostracized
Selfish ridden dead goodbyes
Twisting on the tourniquet
When the pieces never fit

        So, what now?
        Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done

        Bow down
        Sell your soul to me
        I will set you free
        Pacify your demons
        
        Bow down
        Surrender unto me
        Submit infectiously
        Sanctify your demons
        
        Into abyss,
        You don't exist
        Cannot resist,
        The Judas kiss

When the storm has blacked your sky
Intuition crucify
When the ego strips your reign
Assassinate the living flame

        So, what now?
        Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done

Venom of a life insane
Bites into your fragile vein
Internalize and decimate
Patronize and complicate

        So, what now?
        Where go I?

When you think it's all said and done

        Bow down
        Sell your soul to me
        I will set you free
        Pacify your demons
        
        Bow down
        Surrender unto me
        Submit infectiously
        Sanctify your demons
        
        Into abyss,
        You don't exist
        Cannot resist,
        The Judas kiss

Judas lives, recite this vow
I've become your new god now

Followed you from dawn of time
Whispered thoughts into your mind
Watched your towers hit the ground
Lured your children never found
Helped your kings abuse their crown
In the heart of feeble man
Plant the seed of my own plan
The strong and powerful will fall
Find a piece of me in all...
Inside you all

        So, bow down
        Sell your soul to me
        I will set you free
        Pacify your demons
        
        Bow down
        Surrender unto me
        Submit infectiously
        Sanctify your demons
        
        Into abyss,
        You don't exist
        Cannot resist,
        The Judas kiss
