Metallica – That Was Just Your Life lyrics

Like a siren in my head that always threatens to repeat,
Like a blind man that is strapped into the speeding driver's seat,
Like a face that learns to speak, when all it knew was how to bite.
Like a misery that keeps me from from it though I've gone astray,
Like an endless nightmare that I must awaken from each day.

Like conviction.
A premonition,
Not worthy of so I deny,
I deny.

I blind my eyes and try to force it all into place,
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace.
I blind my eyes, I hide and feel it passing me by,
I open just in time to say goodbye.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Curse, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop the bleeding now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

Like a wound that keeps on bleeding to remind me not to think,
Like a raging river drowning when I only need a drink,
Like a poison that I swallow, but I want the world to die.

Like a release from a prison that I didn't know I was in,
Like a fight to live the past I prayed to leave from way back then,
Like a general, without a mission, until the war will start again,
Start again.

I blind my eyes and try and force it all into place,
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace.
I blind my eyes, I hide I feel it passing me by,
I open just in time to say goodbye.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Curse, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop the bleeding now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

Like a touch from hell to feel how hot,
That it can get if you get caught,
Like a strike from heaven turns that key,
That brings you straight down to your knees,
Like a touch from hell to feel how hot,
That it can get if I get caught,
Like a strike from heaven to reprieve,
That brings you straight down to your knees.

Almost like your life,
Almost like your endless fight,
Curse, the day is long,
Realize you don't belong,
Disconnect somehow,
Never stop the bleedinig now,
Almost like your fight,
And there it went,
Almost like your life.
That was just your life.
