Down in the depths of my fiery home
The summons bell will chime
Tempting you and all the earth
To join our sinful kind

There is a job to be done and I'm the one
You people make me do it
Now it is time for your fate and I won't hesitate
to pull you down into this pit

So come on
Jump in the fire!
So come on
Jump in the fire!

With hell in my eyes and with death in my veins
The end is closing in
Feeding on the minds of man
And from their souls within

My disciples all shout to search out
And they always shall obey
Follow me now my child, not the meek or the mild
But do just as I say

So come on
Jump in the fire!
So come on
Jump in the fire!

Jump by your will or be taken by force
I'll get you either way
Trying to keep the hellfire lit
I'm stalking you as prey

Living your life as me I am you you see
So reach down grab my hand
Walk with me through the land
Come home where you belong

So come on
Jump in the fire!
So come on
Jump in the fire!

    General CommentIt's written from the devil's point of view as all hell breaks loose on earth and people are hurting and killing each other and the Devil's just encouraging them to "Jump in the Fire"

    General Commentits from the devil's point of view as he is sending his "minions" or "helpers" to go tempt humans to go down the evil path so that they will be pulled into hell.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this on the Tallica Jump In The Studio site, I thought the voice sounded like Rob Halford from Judas Priest. But it turns out it was Jaymz. :O king nothing, looks like you've got it.

    General Commentheh you guys are taking these songs too literally... it's not about some dooms day where everyone is running around killing eachother. It's just about people who want something so bad that they resort to sin to get it done. "There is a job to be done and I'm the one, you people make me do it". Basically about how tempting it is to do what's wrong, but it also shows the consequences of sinning. If you sell you betray your soul you belong to him. Seems like a satanic song, but it's actually more religious than anything.

    General CommentOne of my favorites, I can't believe the amount of cooments though, I think Kill 'em All is under-rated.
    As for the meaning, I agree with Whiplash.
