Born to push you around
Better just stay down
You pull away
He hits the flesh
You hit the ground

Mouth so full of lies
Tend to black your eyes
Just keep them closed
Keep praying
Just keep waiting

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up
And feel the warmth
But the sunshine never comes, no
No the sunshine never comes

Push you cross that line
Just stay down this time
Hide in yourself
Crawl in yourself
You'll have your time

God I'll make them pay
Take it back one day
I'll end this day
I'll splatter color
On this gray

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up
And feel the warmth
But the sunshine never comes

Love is a four letter word
And never spoken here
Love is a four letter word
Here in this prison

I suffer this no longer
I'll put an end to
This I swear
This starts where the sun will shine
These stars will
These stars will
This I swear!

    Born to push you around
    Better just stay down

    You pull away
    He hits the flesh
    You hit the ground

    Mouth so full of lies
    Tend to black your eyes
    Just keep them closed
    Keep praying
    Just keep waiting

    Waiting for the one
    The day that never comes
    When you stand up
    And feel the warmth
    But the son shine never comes, no

    No, the son shine never comes

    Push you cross that line
    Just stay down this time
    Hide in yourself
    Crawl in yourself
    You'll have your time

    God I'll make them pay
    Take it back one day
    I'll end this day
    I'll splatter color on this gray

    Waiting for the one
    The day that never comes
    When you stand up
    And feel the warmth
    But the son shine never comes
    No the son shine never comes

    Love is a four letter word
    And never spoken here

    Love is a four letter word
    Here in the prison

    I suffer this no longer
    I'll put an end to this I swear
    This I swear

    The son will shine
    This I swear
    This I swear
    This I swear

    I know what you might say. It's not "son" it's "sun". But, it's "son". In the liner notes of the CD, it's there. Hope this helps. These lyrics are the correct lyrics and they came from the inside CD cover.

    Cheers!

    This song is brilliant! Just because the band is getting older does't mean they are losing their goodness! Metallica is awesome! :D

    I concur. These lyrics are wrong. So are the lyrics to The Unforgiven III. I've sent the corrected lyrics from the CD insert and have received the same response. If you want the correct ones, don't get 'em from here. Buy the CD and read 'em yourself.

    Cheers!

    Yung Prince is right, metfan4life. It's not LyricsMode who submitted these lyrics. What makes it bad is that I have sent him the correct lyrics and it seems like he's just ignored them. And this isn't the only one. Look up 'Slipknot - Psychosocial'. He submitted those lyrics as well, and they're all wrong.

    But still, brilliant song. METALLICA ARE BACK!
