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
