Until It Sleeps

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run, but it stays right by my side

        So tear me open, pour me out
        There's things inside that scream and shout
        And the pain still hates me
        So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

        So tear me open but beware
        There's things inside without a care
        And the dirt still stains me
        So wash me until I'm clean

                It grips you, so hold me
                It stains you, so hold me
                It hates you, so hold me
                It holds you, so hold me
                Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip
Don't want your greed
Don't want it

        I'll tear me open, make you gone
        No more can you hurt anyone
        And the fear still shakes me
        So hold me until it sleeps

                It grips you, so hold me
                It stains you, so hold me
                It hates you, so hold me
                It holds you, holds you, holds you
                Until it sleeps

I don't want it

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me... till clean

        I'll tear me open, make you gone
        No longer will you hurt anyone
        And the hate still shapes me
        So hold me until it sleeps
        Until it sleeps
