Rebel of Babylon

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo
Rebel grip your bottle tight
Just float away
Rebel is it hard to leave
What makes you stay?

Go take your poison ink
Sign life away
Then take your dirty spoon
And dig your grave
Dig your grave

Rebel grips the bottle tight
Just floats away
Rebel finds it hard to leave
What makes you stay?

He takes the poison ink
Signing life away
Then takes the dirty spoon
And digs his grave

        Let this dark shine
        Let this dark shine
        Let it shine bright
        Don't let it burn out tonight

                Kill me one more time
                Stigmata
                Kill me one more time
                Neo martyr
                
                Gonna die young
                Gonna live forever
                Kill me one more time
                Rise up
                
                Rebel of Babylon

Renegade fights the fight
That no one wins
He claims a crown of thorns
To pierce the skin

He climbs his crucifix
And waits for dawn
Thinks they'll remember him
After he's gone

        Let this dark shine
        Let this dark shine
        Let it shine bright
        Don't let it burn out tonight

                Kill me one more time
                Stigmata
                Kill me one more time
                Neo martyr
                
                Gonna die young
                Gonna live forever
                Kill me one more time
                Rise up
                
                Rebel of Babylon
                
                Rise up
                Rise up
                Resurrection

This rebel fights the fight
That no one wins
To claim a crown of thorns
To pierce his skin

Climbs his crucifix
And waits for dawn
He looses consciousness
The myth lives on

        Let this dark shine
        Let this dark shine
        Let it shine bright
        Don't let it burn out tonight

                Kill me one more time
                Stigmata
                Kill me one more time
                Neo martyr
                
                Gonna die young
                Gonna live forever
                Kill me one more time
                Rise up
                
                Rebel of Babylon
                
                Rise up
                Rise up
                Resurrection
