Little grave I'm grieving, I will mend you
Sweet revenge I'm dreaming, I will end you
I've been here since dawn of time
Countless hatreds built my shrine
I was born in anger's flame
He was Able, I was Cain
I am here
I'm still hell unbound
Burn your kingdom to the ground
To the ground

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can't undo
Revenge, it's killing me
Revenge, set me free

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask for forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

I return this nightmare, I will find you
Sleepless, cloaked in despair, I'm behind you
Man has made me oh so strong
Blurring lines of right and wrong
Far too late for frail amends
Now it's come to sweet revenge
Desperate hands
That lose control
Have no mercy on your soul
On your soul

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can't undo
Revenge, it's killing me
Revenge, set me free

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask for forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can't undo
Revenge, it's killing me
Revenge, set me free

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask for forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

    General CommentJames has said that the inspiration for this song came from two fans - a married couple, who had lost their child to a drunk driver. The song is basically Hetfield singing from that perspective thus the intro "Little grave I'm grieving, I will mend you". It's a dark but very human song. I dont believe it glorifies revenge but it shows how the need for revenge can take ove and seem to be the only way forward.
