This song is not of typical Metallica fashion as it is far from their traditional thrash metal roots. It describes the thoughts of a drug addicted homeless man who is suffering through his life, wanting to get another chance. Hence, "maybe you'll understand, and won't cry for this man, cause low man is due" and "please forgive me." (thanks, Nick - Westerville, OH)
