  • Am I savage?
    Scratching at the door
    Am I savage?
    I don't recognize you anymore


    James Hetfield explained to Rolling Stone Australia that the lyrics on this riff-driven track are about the, "realization that there's a beast in me, and there's a beauty in me too... that I can go from being super nice to some f--ked up beast that has no real filter or common sense."
