Dead! - We Are Dead Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
Welcome to tonight's main event
We are Dead!
You are the Damned and Restless Future
Enjoy tonight's show
One, two, one, two, three, four

Well what a place to speak under the circumstance
You say the earth is like a saying of romance
In the space between darker shades of his heart
Well he just wants to know what came up from the start

So he said:
"Here's to everyone I've met
Who I have filled up with regret
With a sense of irony
That we love what we see
I would walk across this earth
At the peril of my worst
You can wreck the bones in me
But these words will always be"

The crowd looks at him with a shade of mild consent
So we swim through a line up of all the days that we've spent
In this quiet town that we call our home
Longing to get out of all that we've known
The crowd looks at him
Only confirm that is hard to say
Is "fuck the future"

So he said:
"Here's to everyone I've met
Who I have filled up with regret
With a sense of irony
That we love what we see
I would walk across this earth
At the peril of my worst
You can wreck the bones in me
But these words will always be"

He hears his voice inside his head
One step closer to the edge
This won't be the end for him
This won't be the end for him
He hears his voice inside his head
One step closer to the edge
This won't be the end for him
This won't be the end for him

No, oh no you didn't

So he said:
"Here's to everyone I've met
Who I have filled up with regret
With a sense of irony
That we love what we see
I would walk across
This earth at the peril of my worst
You can wreck the bones in me
But these words will always be"

  10. Russ Corry

    I don't know about you guy's opinion but the lead singer of Metallica just doesn't look right with short hair.

  11. 주누누

  18. Ross R


  19. Leedy Scalemodeller

    That tom , fill thing , yeah nah

  20. Chris Bruce

    I still love this song, but it was what was playing when I got hit by a 18 wheeler in my Challenger....

  21. Daniel Calamatta

    I enjoy no other band as much as I enjoy Metallica. Lifelong fan.

  22. Christopher Regan

    Despite all the criticism and the memes that Metallica has received, like James's vocal style and YEAHEAH, Kirk's excessive wah-wah solos, Lars's drumming capabilities, snare fetish and Napster incident, and their historically bad luck with bassists and Dave Mustaine, I wouldn't have it any other way because these things define Metallica's true core. Love it or hate it, these features are what distinguish Metallica from everyone else, and what has kept them chugging along since the early 1980s!

  23. Kristie Clark

    I love my boys Metallica always and forever my boys

  24. OS KAR

  47. Roastar


  48. Fyrth

    Guys at around 5:05 in Enter Sandman, you hear a similar sound to the main riff of this song. Perhaps they incorporated that into this song?

  49. Rotten to the Core!

    Bland, average... shite!

  50. Matthew Gentry

    I cannot think of a better pre Game chant then this song

  51. Cuervokid Mark

    I'm Sorry !

  52. Альбина Кашникова

    Straight to 1991. Love it. Welcome back, James!

    Rotten to the Core!

    They were going down the shitter by '91 and were completely done by '94... the rest is a joke!

    Sss Hhh

    Someone's cranky ^^^^

  53. Praveesh Prassannan

    James i love you

  54. Aaron Kelley

    Now that I'm a civilian! Lol dead civilian same thing!

    i really really reaally can not understand the dislikes!!

  57. Marjol Edelijn

    My Favorite Band EVER 🖤🤘❤!!

  58. Morgan Ratliff

    What a fantastic album. Why? Because it isn't amazing, it isn't mind-blowing, it isn't revolutionary -- it's just four dudes with such an obvious love and passion for the music they play jammin' hard. They don't need to reinvent the wheel; they already have and now they're having fun with it. They're playing for the sake of playing and it's a real pleasure to see and listen to.

    Rotten to the Core!


    Sss Hhh

    Someone's cranky ^^^

  59. alex saccone

    Qualcuno mi ammazzerà per quello che sto per scrivere ma è ciò che penso ... Questa se non alla pari ma quantomeno è ai livelli di MASTER OF PUPPETS ... Meravigliosa l'ascolterei 24/7

  60. Shane Starrette

  61. Szabolcs Szigligeti

    . . .say no more <3

  62. Szabolcs Szigligeti

    . . .now, THAT. . .is a TRILLION DOLLAR TRACK <3

  63. JoeyGames

    Anyone watching this in 1983?

    Rotten to the Core!

    In '83, James hadn't been completely arse-raped by a Danish gremlin; that rollercoaster shitstorm happened after Burton's death.

    Sss Hhh

    Someone's cranky ^^^


    0:10 the sound of MACHINE GUN ...... !!!!

  65. Jason Elliott

    John 3:36

  95. Nick Varhol

    On 1.5x faster speed it sounds like something from Kill 'Em All


    holy shit! this song is over three years old and now I barley tried this! but Yeah It definitely carries that vibe from Kill'Em All, almost like recycling the riff from No Remorse or something! good call!

    Nick Varhol

    @Murphy08 by speeding up whole Hardwired album you can get really old-school vibes

  96. David Leon

    Outstanding Riff construction from the 1st chord to the 1st lyric.metal at its best and Prayer type lyrics seems like giving the middle finger to satanism in metal.rebellion at it's best in the name of life.
