"The End Of The Line" as written by and Kirk L. Hammett James Alan Hetfield....
Need
More and more
Tainted misery

Bleed
Battle scars
Chemical affinity

Reign
Legacy
Innocence corrode

Stain
Rot away
Catatonic overload

Choke
Asphyxia
Snuff reality

Scorch
Kill the light
Incinerate celebrity

Reaper
Butchery
Karma amputee

Bloodline
Breeding fine
Death contagious deity

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more

New consequence machine
Burn through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime
Never mind
You reach the end of the line

Time
Choke the clock
Steal another day

Die
Faithfully
Narcissistic fade away

Twisted
Jump the rail
Shout at the crowd below

Breaker
Chase the ghost
The latest high to all time low

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more

New consequence machine
Burn through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime
Never mind
You reach the end of the line

Drop the hourglass of time
Spinning sand we will not find
As we gather here today
We bid farewell

The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master

Need more and more
Right now and ever after
Need more and more

New consequence machine
Burn through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime
Never mind

Dead hourglass of time
Sand we will not ever find
We gather here today
Say goodbye
'Cause you've reached the end of the line

The end of the line
The end of the line
The end of the line
You've reached the end of the line

    General Comment Sure. Leve87 answered my question.. I was sure it's something from Justice... Well, as I mentioned, the album is just great, something between Justice and Black, but I can't imagine guys in their 40s with wives and children singing all these songs about death, suicide, etc. I mean, there's a lot of rage in those lyrics and I'm not sure if they come from their minds, from their beliefs and thoughts. James et consortes seem to be rather calm and happy guys enjoying their quiet lives. IMHO the lyrics from 80s were more natural, but the question is then: what are they supposed to write about now? Not bout changing their babies after all ;)

    General CommentThe way he sings it, how he says one word, then pauses a little. Well anyway, it's like a song off of RTL. Can't remember what though...

    Anyway I swear the guitar riff, just before the chorus is lifted straight from a justice song...
