"Better Than You" as written by and Lars Ulrich James Alan Hetfield....
I look at you, then you, me
Hungry and thirsty are we
Holding the lion’s share, holding the key
Holding me back ‘cause I’m striving to be

Better than you
Better than you

Lock horns, I push and I strive
Somehow I feel more alive
Bury the need for it, bury the seed
Bury me deep when there’s no will to be

Better than you
Better than you

Can’t stop this train from rolling
Nothing brings me down
No, can’t stop this train from rolling on and on, on
Forever on and on

Can’t stop this train from rolling
You can’t take it down
No, never stop this locomotion, on and on and on
No, you can’t bring me down ‘cause I’m

Better than you
Better than you
