  • Little grave I'm grieving, I will mend you
    Sweet revenge I'm dreaming, I will end you
    I've been here since dawn of time
    Countless hatreds built my shrine
    I was born in anger's flame
    He was Abel, I was Cain
    I am here, I'm hell unbound
    Burn your kingdom to the ground, to the ground

    Here comes revenge, just for you
    Revenge, you can't undo
    Revenge, it's killing me
    Revenge, set me free

    Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
    A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

    Revenge, just for you
    Revenge
    You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

    I return this nightmare, I will find you
    Sleepless, cloaked in despair, I'm behind you
    Man has made me oh, so strong
    Blurring lines of right and wrong
    Far too late for frail amends
    Now it's come to sweet revenge
    Desperate hands that lose control
    Have no mercy on your soul, on your soul

    Here comes revenge, just for you
    Revenge, you can't undo
    Revenge, it's killing me
    Revenge, set me free

    Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
    A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

    Revenge, just for you
    Revenge
    You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

    Here comes revenge, just for you
    Revenge, you can't undo
    Revenge, it's killing me
    Revenge, set me free

    Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
    A life for a life, it's my burden of proof

    Revenge, just for you
    Revenge
    You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge
    Sweet revenge Writer/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, LARS ULRICH

  • Lydia Mcgowan from Monkstown Co. Dublin IrelandThat's an extremely bizarre music video but interesting. That wolf head guy must've slaughtered those creatures that are on the wall.
  • Beryl Gage. from Michigan, Usa.Wow. This song is extremely shocked to hear the backstory to this song. What a deep song, love it.
