Metallica – Cyanide lyrics

Sleep and dream of this.
Death Angel's kiss.
Brings final bliss.
Completely.
Empty they say.
Death, won't you let me stay?
Empty, they say.
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name.
Suicide, I've already died
You're just the funeral I've been waiting for.
Cyanide, living dead inside.
Break this empty shell forevermore.
Wait, wait patiently.
Your death black wings,
Unfolding scream,
Spreading for me.
Empty, they say.
Death, won't you let me stay?
Empty, they say.
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name.
Suicide, I've already died
You're just the funeral I've been waiting for.
Cyanide, living dead inside.
Break this empty shell forevermore.
Say is that rain or are they tears
That has stained your concrete face for years?
The crying, weeping, shedding strife.
Year after year, life after life.
An air of freshly broken ground
A concrete angel lit right down.
Upon the grave which swallows fast.
It's peace at last, peace at last!
Empty, they say.
Death, won't you let me stay?
Empty, they say.
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name.
Suicide, I've already died.
You're just the funeral I've been waiting for.
Cyanide, living dead inside.
Break this empty shell forevermore.
Forever more.
Forever more.
It's just the funeral I've been waiting for.

    Yeah I love this song along with pretty much every other metallica song (except for st anger album, but that's my opinion) lol I dunno I don't really like St Anger but anyways I'm really pleased that Metallica are starting to go back to their old stuff and they are bringing in new stuff too which also sounds pretty kewl
    love metallica, no matter what they do, they will always be the best band ever!
