The God That Failed

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Not the word
Not the love
Not what you thought from above

        It feeds
        It grows
        It clouds all that you will know
        
        Deceit
        Deceive
        Decide just what you believe

                I see faith in your eyes
                Never you hear the discouraging lies
                I hear faith in your cries
                
                Broken is the promise, betrayal
                The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
                Follow the god that failed

Find your peace
Find your say
Find the smooth road on your way

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

        It feeds
        It grows
        It clouds all that you will know
        
        Deceit
        Deceive
        Decide just what you believe

                I see faith in your eyes
                Never you hear the discouraging lies
                I hear faith in your cries
                
                Broken is the promise, betrayal
                The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
                Follow the god that failed

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

                I see faith in your eyes
                Never you hear the discouraging lies
                I hear faith in your cries
                
                Broken is the promise, betrayal
                The healing hand held back by the deepened nail
                Follow the god that failed
