"My World" as written by and Robert Jens/hetfield Rock....
The motherfuckers got in my head
Trying to make me someone else instead

It's my world now
It's my world now
It's my world...
It's my world...!

Mama, why's it rainin' in my room?
Cheer up boy! Clouds will move on soon!
Heavy fog got me lost inside
Gonna sit right back and enjoy this ride!

It's my world
You can't have it
It's my world, It's my world
It's my world

Sucka!

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out!

Who's in charge of my head today?
Dancin' devils in angels way

It's my time now
It's my time now
It's my time...
Yeah, it's my time...!

Look out motherfuckers here I come!
I'm gonna make my head my home
The sons of bitches tried to take my head
Tried to make me someone else instead

It's my world
You can't have it
It's my world, it's my world
It's my world

Sucka!

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out of my head, out of my head
Get 'em out!

Not only do I not know the answer...
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE QUESTION IS!! (x2)

God it feels...
Like it only rains on me (x4)

Not only do I not know the answer...
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE QUESTION IS!! (x2)

Sucka!

I'm out of my head, out of my head
Out of my head, get 'em out of my head
Get 'em out!

Enough's enough (x8)

    General Commentthe song is about not letting manipulative assholes try and force you in a direction you don't want to go. in other words: FUCK OFF! YOU'RE NOT IN CHARGE OF MY LIFE!

    PS: Metal_Up_Ya_Ass_Jay seems like those 'fans' who wanted Metallica to release Kill em All 8 times. him and the others who think that can get screwed

    Song MeaningThis is a song about recovery particularly Hetfields alcoholism and rehab.

    It's about being told how to act and feel, rehab is conditioning and if you ever watched 'Some Kind of Monster' you would 100% understand this song. Hetfield came back from his rehab completely different, toned down, family focused, and tame.

    'Not only do I not know the answer, I don't even know what the question is'

    Refers to rehab therapy and this new conditioning.

    'It's my world you cant have it' is a phrase meaning that hetfields not used to this new lifestyle and is finding it hard to accept this new way of thinking that is being forced onto him. His doctors were getting into his thoughts and 'trying to make me someone else instead'

    'Clouds will move on soon'
    'Gotta sit right back and enjoy this ride' shows that hetfield was not happy about requiring therapy for his anger and alcoholism but he knew it was the right thing to do.

    At the end of the song 'Enough's enough' refers to hetfield being overwhelmed by his alcoholism and rejecting his past self.

    Just watch 'Some Kind of Monster' the whole album becomes very clear.

    Not about demons.

    General CommentThe song is great, but I dont know what the fuck the meaning is. The lyrics are so jumbled and confusing, its hard to tack a meaning onto this one. Maybe someone can come up with it.

    General Commentto me this song isnt hard to understand its meaning.
    it is about someones state of mind, feeling that their thoughts arnt their own. example: "Themotherfuckers got in my head
    Trying to make me someone else instead. the phrases in the song saying my world isnt talking about the actual "world" but his mind.
