Until It Sleeps
by Metallica



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 solely, it holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps...

So tell me why you've choosen 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 so hold me
Until it sleeps...

I don't want it... I don't want it, want it, want it, want it, want it, nooooooooo

So tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me, till I'm clean

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shakes me, so hold me
until it sleeps
Until it sleeps...
