Attitude

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Suppose I say "I'm never satisfied"
Suppose I say "You cut some root to make the tree survive"

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once
I'm oh so bored to death

        I hunger
        I hunger
        I eat

                Born into attitude
                Asleep at the wheel
                Throw all your bullets in the fire
                And run like hell
                Why cure the fever?
                Whatever happened to sweat?

Suppose I say "The vultures smile at me"
Suppose I say "I've sent them down and they plan to pick you clean"

And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone, gone
Gone again

        I hunger
        I hunger
        I eat

                Born into attitude
                Asleep at the wheel
                Throw all your bullets in the fire
                And stand there
                
                Born into attitude
                Twist mother tongue
                Throw all your bullets in the fire
                And run like hell
                Why cure the fever?
                Whatever happened to sweat?

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once for me
I'm bored to death

And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone, gone
Gone again

        I hunger
        I hunger
        I eat

                Born into attitude
                Asleep at the wheel
                Throw all your bullets in the fire
                And stand there
                
                Born into attitude
                Twist mother tongue
                Throwing all your bullets in the fire
                And run like hell
                Why cure the fever?
                Whatever happened to sweat?
