  • (One, two...)

    Luck runs out

    Crawl from the wreckage one more time
    Horrific memory twists the mind
    Dark, rutted (rugged?), cold and hard to turn
    Path of destruction, feel it burn

    Still life
    Incarnation
    Still life
    Infamy

    Hallucination
    Heresy
    Still you run
    What's to come?
    What's to be?

    'Cause we'll hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long
    Feel us breathe upon your face
    Feel our shift, every move we trace

    Hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long, yeah
    Luck runs...
    And you crawl out again
    But your luck runs out

    (One, two...)

    Luck runs out

    The light that is not light is here
    To flush you out with your own fear
    You hide, you hide
    But will be found
    Release your grip without a sound

    Still life
    Immolation
    Still life
    Infamy

    Hallucination
    Heresy
    Still you run
    What's to come?
    What's to be?

    'Cause we'll hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long
    Feel us breathe upon your face
    Feel our shift, every move we trace

    Hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long, yeah
    Luck runs...
    And you crawl out again
    But your luck runs out

    Then you crawl back in
    Into your obsession
    Never to return
    This is your confession

    Hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long
    Feel us breathe upon your face
    Feel our shift, every move we trace

    Hunt you down without mercy
    Hunt you down all nightmare long, yeah
    Luck runs...
    And you crawl out again
    But your luck runs outWriter/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, KIRK L. HAMMETT, LARS ULRICH, ROBERT AGUIRRE TRUJILLO, ROBERT AUGUSTINE TRUJILLO

  • Zander from Los AngelesI loved hearing this album- It gave me hope that Metallica has gone back to their roots (and you can tell because the songs are about death and destruction).
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI don't know, somehow I think this album could've been made better. It kinda sounds like a rawer version of Slayer. (Well Rick Rubin did produce it) Maybe it's the way it was produced or maybe the songwriting and/or performances weren't up to par. I can't put my finger on it. I WILL say that these songs transfer very well into a live setting, so maybe it was done on purpose.
  • Shingami from Lusaka, ZambiaDefinitely a great song, My favorite of the album which is an overall good album. I laugh in the faces of people who kept saying metallica where done after St Anger. this album proves that Metallica are still a great band for a bunch of old guys they still rock cause this album is heavy and fast its an amazing listen.
  • Mike from Ny, NyThis song makes me think of a sniper at night using a night vision scope with his crosshairs on whomever his target is and taunting him
  • Matt from Bakersfield, CaWhen i first got this album my oldest brother supporting me and my youngest brother on getting into Metallica finally! he came and dropped it off for us he had his own of course. at first i didn't know what to make of it but after awhile i got hooked on it diffenitly a great album and an awesome tune!
  • Charlie from Las Vegas, Nvif i had to name my favorite Metallica songs from each decade they'd been around, this song would definitely be my favorite from this '00-'09 (the other two are 'ride the lightning' [1984] and 'enter sandman' [1991]).
  • Abdullaah from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia1.....2.........!!!!!! Headbang!!!
  • Jeff from Austin, TxThis is definitely my favorite song on DM. I've listened to it several dozen times, and 6:00-6:27 still gives me goosebumps. That riff is straight out of early 80s Metallica!
  • Liquid Len from Ottawa, CanadaSeems to be a retread of lyrical themes from earlier tunes (in this case, Enter Sandman).
  • Hetfield from Port Louis, MauritiusMy favourite song in Death Magnetic....
  • Michael J from Needles, CaRules the album. The one you need to hear to make a decision if you want to own this release or not. The feel is very And Justice For All. Nothing like recapturing the old glory.
  • Steve from Lala Vile, Inits true i closed my eyes while listening to this song and i saw things even tho i couldnt make out what they were.
  • Matt from Houston, TxMy favorite off death magnetic
  • Armando from Winona, MnWow its really left over from St. Anger? Too bad they didn't put this on St. Anger then that album wouldn't have been one of the biggest wastes of my money.
  • Eric from Lorton, VaThis is my favorite on the album... the solos kick major ass and doesnt stop until the song ends!!!
  • Nick from Cairns, AustraliaThis song is awesome!! i love those H.P Lovecraft themed songs that james reflects on and the songs always turn out good too!! even if its instrumental or not
  • Brandon from Haltom, TxOK this a badass SONG!!!! and the video is awesome!
