Eye of the Beholder

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett
Do you see what I see?
Truth is an offence
Your silence for your confidence

Do you hear what I hear?
Doors are slamming shut
Limit your imagination, keep you where they must

Do you feel what I feel?
Bittering distress
Who decides what you express?

Do you take what I take?
Endurance is the word
Moving back instead of forward seems to me absurd

        Doesn't matter what you see
        Or into it what you read
        You can do it your own way
        If it's done just how I say

                Independence limited
                Freedom of choice
                Choice is made for you, my friend
                Freedom of speech
                Speech is words that they will bend
                Freedom with their exception

Do you fear what I fear?
Living properly
Truths to you are lies to me

Do you choose what I choose?
More alternatives
Energy derives from both the plus and negative

Do you need what I need?
Boundaries overthrown
Look inside, to each his own

Do you trust what I trust?
Me, myself and I
Penetrate the smoke screen, I see through the selfish lie

Doesn't matter what you see
Or into it what you read
You can do it your own way
If it's done just how I say

Independence limited
Freedom of choice
Choice is made for you, my friend
Freedom of speech
Speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with their exception

Do you know what I know?
Your money and your wealth
Your silence just to hear yourself

Do you want what I want?
Desire not a thing
I hunger after independence, lengthen freedom's ring

        Doesn't matter what you see
        Or into it what you read
        You can do it your own way
        If it's done just how I say

                Independence limited
                Freedom of choice
                Choice is made for you, my friend
                Freedom of speech
                Speech is words that they will bend
                Freedom no longer frees you

        Doesn't matter what you see
        Or into it what you read
        You can do it your own way
        If it's done just how I say
