  • Fell no pain, but my life ain't easy
    I know I'm my best friend
    No one cares, but I'm so much stronger
    I'll fight until the end
    To escape from the true false world
    Undamaged destiny
    Can't get caught in the endless circle
    Ring of stupidity

    Out for my own, out to be free
    One with my mind, they just can't see
    No need to hear things that they say
    Life is for my own to live my own way

    Rape my mind and destroy my feelings
    Don't tell me what to do
    I don't care now, 'cause I'm on my side
    And I can see through you
    Feed my brain with your so called standards
    Who says that I ain't right
    Break away from your common fashion
    See through your blurry sight

    Out for my own, out to be free
    One with my mind, they just can't see
    No need to hear things that they say
    Life is for my own to live my own way

    See they try to bring the hammer down
    No damn chains can hold me to the ground

    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way
    Life is for my own to live my own way Writer/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, KIRK L. HAMMETT, LARS ULRICH
