You think you see me, in the glass
You think you hear me, you better listen fast
I think I see you, gone to seed
The only reasons were your guilt and greed
You're out there on your own
Your face turned to stone
Whatever happened to your life?
Stone dead forever

It's been a long time, been a long, long wait
And now you've caught your fingers, in the Pearly Gates
You'd better leave your number, and we'll call you
You know your problems, ain't exactly new
The wrong side of the fold
Your touch has turned to gold
Whatever happened to your life?
Stone dead forever

You're a financial wizard, a top tycoon
You're sweet lounge lizard, with a silver spoon
You know you never had it, quite so good
'Cause you didn't know, that you even could
But the time has come to pay
Turns out to have been a play
Whatever happened to your life?
Stone dead forever

    No comments? After its Metallica exposure AND it being one of Motorhead's best songs? Shame on you. I (think) it's about one corrupting themselves with greed. Metaphorically, all he touches turned to gold, and now the guy has turned to gold/stone. Now he's stone dead forever.

    I think you hit it right on the ball, frye. And why doesn't this song have more comments? This is a Metal Masterpiece. Always preferred the Motorhead version to the Metallica one.

    Yeah the Motorhead version is way better than Metallica. Love Lemmy's vocals especially, perfect for the nature of song..
