Just a Bullet Away

Written By Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett/Trujillo

All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
All reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath a skin
A hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
And the shine of the midnight revolver

	Even the promise of danger has gone dull
	Staring down the barrel of a .45
	
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck it 'til it's gone dry
	
	For all reflections look the same
	In the shine of the midnight revolver

Redemption purify
Will nothing satisfy
The scars just multiply
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Twisting in apocalypse
Death upon the fingertips
Frigid metal touches lips
And the shine of the midnight revolver

	'Cause you lied
	Just a bullet away
	Just a bullet away from leavin' you
	Just a bullet away
	Stop the voices in my head

Caressing death again
Becomes the heroin
Forbidden medicine
Puts a shine on the midnight revolver

Eternal borderline
All the faces intertwine
Oh God... now I see mine
In the shine of the midnight revolver

	Even the promise of danger has gone dull
	Staring down the barrel of a .45
	
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck... suck 'til it's dry
	
	For all reflections look the same
	In the shine of the midnight revolver
	
	Down In Misery
	Down In Misery
	
	Just a bullet away
	Just a bullet away from leavin' you
	Just a bullet away
	Stop the voices in my head

All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
Reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath a skin
A hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
And the shine of the midnight revolver

	Even the promise of danger has gone dull
	Staring down the barrel of a .45
	
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck on the barrel
	Suck... suck 'til it's dry
	
	Do all reflections look the same
	In the shine of the midnight revolver
	
	'Cause you lied
	Yes you lied
	
	Just a bullet away
	Just a bullet away from leavin' you
	Just a bullet away
	Stop the voices in my head
