Lyrics Metallica – Ride the Lightning

Metallica – Ride the Lightning words

Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ain’t right
There’s someone else controlling me
Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can’t be happening to me

 
Who made you God to say,
I’ll take your life from you?

 
Flash before my eyes
Now it’s time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

 
Wait for the sign
To flick the switch of death
It’s the beginning of the end
Sweat, chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness my only friend

 
My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?

 
Flash before my eyes
Now it’s time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

 
Someone help me
Oh please, God help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don’t want to die

 
Time moving slow
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see
How true is this
Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be

 
Wakened by horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream

 
Flash before my eyes
Now it’s time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame
