Atlas, Rise!

Album: Hardwired... to Self-Destruct (2016)
  • Bitterness and burden
    Curses rest on thee
    Solitaire and sorrow
    All eternity
    Save the Earth and claim perfection
    Deem the mass and blame rejection
    Hold the pose, fein perception
    Grudges break your back

    All you bear
    All you carry
    All you bear
    Place it right on
    Right on me

    Die as you suffer in vain
    Own all the grief and the pain
    Die as you hold up the skies
    Atlas, rise!
    How does it feel on your own?
    Bound by the world all alone
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Atlas, rise

    Crucify and witness
    Circling the sun
    Bastardized in ruin
    What have you become?
    Blame the world and blame your maker
    Wish 'em to the undertaker
    Crown yourself the other savior
    So you carry on

    All you bear
    All you carry
    All you bear
    Place it right on
    Right on me

    Die as you suffer in vain
    Own all the grief and the pain
    Die as you hold up the skies
    Atlas, rise!
    How does it feel on your own?
    Bound by the world all alone
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Atlas, rise!

    Masquerade as maker
    Heavy is the crown
    Beaten down and broken
    Drama wears you down
    Overload, the martyr stumbles
    Hit the ground and heaven crumbles
    All alone the fear shall humble
    Swallow all your pride

    All you bear
    All you carry
    All you bear
    Place it right on
    Right on me

    Die as you suffer in vain
    Own all the grief and the pain
    Die as you hold up the skies
    Atlas, rise
    How does it feel on your own?
    Bound by the world all alone
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Crushed under heavy skies
    Atlas, rise Writer/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, LARS ULRICH
