  • Purify

    Tear it down
    Strip the layers off
    My turpentine
    Old paint, old looks
    Cover up the past
    White heat, white light
    Super white bones
    Bones of you and I

    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?
    Purify, you and I
    Purify, you and I
    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?

    You and I, Purify (x3)

    Truth and dare
    Peeling back the skin
    Acid wash
    Ghost white
    Ultra clean
    Want to be skeleton
    Clear eyes
    Diamond eyes
    Strip the past of mine
    My sweet turpentine

    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?
    Purify, you and I
    Purify, you and I
    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?

    You and I, Purify (x3)

    I can find the dirt on anything
    I can find the dirt on anything

    I ain't dancing with your skeletons
    I ain't dancing with what might have been

    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?
    Purify, you and I
    Purify, you and I
    Pure if I...Can't you help me?
    Pure if I...Won't you help me?

    You and I, Purify
    You and I, Purify
    C'mon, Purify! Writer/s: BOB ROCK, JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, KIRK L. HAMMETT, LARS ULRICH
