  • Oh run away, the past will bite again
    Oh no matter where you dwell
    You here again, a captive of the howl
    You welcome back to hell

    Faithful, as the full moon is rising
    Beauty and the beast are colliding

    Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
    Deepened seed soaks anger's reign
    Arching back, shape-shift derange
    Father, how I watched you change

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

    Oh tooth is fang, twisting under skin
    Oh foul tongue, black breath
    Change snap inside, the beast about complete
    Change soon infects the rest

    Faithful, as the full moon is rising
    Beauty and the beast are colliding

    Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
    Deepened seed soaks anger's reign
    Arching back, shape-shift derange
    Father, how I watched you change

    Am I savage?
    Howling at the door
    Am I savage?
    I don't recognize you anymore
    Anymore

    Oh inheritance, the past has bit again
    Oh the next heir of anarchy
    Feel stretching skin so far beyond belief
    I feel the ever changing, you, in me

    Am I savage?
    Scratching at the door
    Am I savage?
    Howling evermore
    Am I savage?
    I don't recognize me anymore
    Anymore
    Anymore ha ha ha
    Am I savage? Writer/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, LARS ULRICH
