Blackened

Written By Hetfield/Ulrich/Newsted

Blackened is the end
Winter it will send
Throwing all you see
Into obscurity

Death of Mother Earth
Never a rebirth
Evolution's end
Never will it mend

Never

	Fire
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Blackened is the end
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Color our world blackened

Blistering of earth
Terminate its worth
Deadly nicotine
Kills what might have been

Callous frigid chill
Nothing left to kill
Never seen before
Breathing nevermore

Never

	Fire
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Blackened is the end
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Color our world blackened
	
	Blackened

Opposition...contradiction...premonition...compromise
Agitation...violation...mutilation...planet dies

Darkest color
Blistered earth
True death of life

Termination...expiration...cancellation...human race
Expectation...liberation...population...lay to waste

See our mother
Put to death
See our mother die

Smoldering decay
Take her breath away
Millions of our years
In minutes disappears

Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the sun

Never

	Fire
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Blackened is the end
	To begin whipping dance of the dead
	Fire
	Is the outcome of hypocrisy
	Darkest potency
	In the exit of humanity
	Color our world blackened
	
	Blackened
