Whiplash

Written By Hetfield/Ulrich

Late at night, all systems go
You've come to see the show
We do our best, you're the rest
You make it real, you know
There is a feeling deep inside
That drives you fuckin' mad
A feeling of a hammerhead
You need it oh so bad

	Adrenaline starts to flow
	You're thrashing all around
	Acting like a maniac
	Whiplash

Bang your head against the stage 
Like you never did before
Make it ring, make it bleed
Make it really sore
In a frenzied madness 
With your leathers and your spikes
Heads are bobbing all around
It's hot as hell tonight

	Adrenaline starts to flow
	You're thrashing all around
	Acting like a maniac
	Whiplash

Here on stage the Marshall noise 
Is piercing through your ears
It kicks your ass, kicks your face
Exploding feeling nears
Now's the time to let it rip
To let it fuckin' loose
We're gathered here to maim and kill
'Cause this is what we choose

	Adrenaline starts to flow
	You're thrashing all around
	Acting like a maniac
	Whiplash

The show is through, the metal's gone
It's time to hit the road
Another town, another gig
Again we will explode
Hotel rooms and motorways
Life out here is raw
But we'll never stop
We'll never quit
'Cause we're Metallica

	Adrenaline starts to flow
	You're thrashing all around
	Acting like a maniac
