"Fuel" as written by Tommy Stewart, Pete Murray, Neil Matthew Godfrey and John L. Fahnestock....
Give me fuel,
Give me fire,
Give me that which I desire,
Ooh!

Turn on, I see red
Adrenaline crash and crash my head
Nitro junkie, paint me dead
And I see red

One hundred plus through black and white
War horse, warhead
Fuck 'em man, white knuckles tight
Through black and white

Ohhh, on I burn,
Fuel is pumping engines,
Burning hard, loose and clean
And I burn,
Churning my direction,
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Give me fuel,
Give me fire,
Give me that which I desire, (Hey)

Hey!
Turn on beyond the bone
Swallow future, spit out home
Burn your face upon the chrome
Yeah!

Take the corner, join the crash,
Headlights, headlines
Another junkie lives too fast
Lives way too fast (fast), fast (fast), fast (fast), whoa oh

Ohhh, on I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And on I burn
Churning my direction,
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Give me fuel,
Give me fire,
Give me that which I desire, Oh, yeah, ah

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Burn motherfucker burn!

Ohhh, on I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And I burn
Churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Give me fuel,
Give me fire,
Give me that which I desire, yeah!

Yeah burn!

Well that felt pretty good

    My OpinionI've read through some of these pages and I have to wonder why nobody mentioned "adrenaline junkies" yet..
    The way I get it, this song is about people that seek every thrill they can get, adrenaline being the fuel that gets their blood running, even if they might crash and burn.

    General Commentim not going to argue against the drug theme here, both points have already been made
    BUT: please, if you think you need to spell things differently, with y's and z's and shit, for christ's sake, do not do it wit another man's name

    General CommentI think this song is about ones desires, and satisfying one's desires. It also shows Hetfield has a desire for things in life. Hetfield is using a metaphore, obviously , a car. Using first person shows he's talking about his desires. "I burn", "quench my thirst", and "my desire", is a dead give away. Overall this song kicks @$$.

    General CommentI think Hetfield's using Fuel as a metaphore for Drugs and addiction.

    General CommentHe uses an engine as a metaphore for addiction to drugs. The body always want's more, just like one might want to push an engine more.

    General CommentThe song is about drug use by the band, but also about getting through the drug use and still be an awsome band.
