Metallica - Am I Savage? Lyrics

Run away, the past will bite again
No matter where you dwell
Here again, a captive of the howl
Welcome back to hell

Faithful, as the full moon is rising
Beauty and the Beast are colliding

Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
Deepened seed soaks angers reign
Arching back, shape-shift derange
Father, how I watched you change

Am I savage?
Scratching at the door
Am I savage?
I don't recognize you anymore

Tooth is fang, twisting under skin
Foul tongue, black breath
Snap inside, the Beast about complete
Soon infects the rest

Faithful, as the full moon is rising
Beauty and the Beast are colliding

Sharpened edge touch liquid flame
Deepened seed soaks angers reign
Arching back, shape-shift derange
Father, how I watched you change

Am I savage?
Howling at the door
Am I savage?
I don't recognize you anymore

Inheritance, the past has bit again
The next heir of anarchy
Stretching skin so far beyond belief
I feel,
The ever changing, you, in me

Am I savage?
Scratching at the door
Am I savage?
Howling evermore
Am I savage?
I don't recognize me anymore

Anymore, ha ha ha
Am I savage?

  5. jaymz

    this song is so underrated

  6. Alan Lloyd

    This song is definitely one of the better songs on an agonizingly average album.

  7. Alan Lloyd

    The chorus chord sequence is one of the highlights of the album called "Hardwired....... So what?"

  8. Alan Lloyd

    Is this a sequel to "Am I Evil" ???

  9. prowlermadman

    Piece of shit!

  10. Kevin Rinke

    Love that laugh towards the end! Evil Hetfield laughs never get old!

  11. Berkay Öner

    That's so cool man

  12. 3asyboi Reee

  21. senyoret Core

    "Master of puppets is the last album of Metallica wich is good" Change my mind

    We have to thank Metallica for keep doing nice music and listen more than old stuff


    Why should anyone change your mind? You are perfectly entitled to your opinion/choice of music. As long as you don't impose them on others forcefully.

    senyoret Core

    @JaGuaR chill dude, it was a meme

  22. Kasperr

    2:20 James?


    “I don’t recognize you anymore”
    Said everyone parent to their kids during and after puberty.

  24. someone

  29. Andro kos

    When you eat 3 vitamin gummies insted of 2

  30. Loyd Adrian Pasaje

    Listen to this song in Eb (drop) and it sounds very LOAD/ReLOAD.

  31. WaffenWaffle

    Hot fucking damn I keep coming back to listen to that breakdown riff. Probably the heaviest possible thing you could play on a six string in standard tuning.

  32. Starting _Rumors

    😍😍😍 that riff

  33. DGZV

    Bass is so Savage there!!!

  34. stratogate steins

    0:35 trust?

    Черт, за этот трек я готов Папе Хэту поставить Памятник при жизни!!! НАСТОЛЬКО ГЛУБОКО этим треком он ПРОНИК в мою никчемную жизнь... Thank you very much, Het!!!

  36. Serban Untu

    4:17 Best Riff on the whole album.

  37. cougar knife

    This is a masterpiece. Get well James we are with you!

  38. P. O.

    Love it. Love James. Get well.

  39. Jose Valles

    What's the message here?

  40. Kirk WAHmett 89

    The breakdown/bridge and ending is absolute destruction. Didnt expect from modern met. Kinda reminds me of thing that should not be and my apocalypse ending riffs. Also, its in E standard. Proves that you dont need low tunings to have balls of steel. Also, that solo is basic, but fits perfectly. Makes me wanna punch someone in a bar.

  41. Film Beast Productions

    Is this a Megadeth song or?

  42. Andrew Marllon

    Mano, não tem como não amar esse álbum. Só música de qualidade!

  72. 和Gabriel

    desde que o Metallica iniciou essa nova fase, essa é a a melhor obra deles, pqp que música incrível

  73. Forck

    4:09 when you eating dinner with the fam and fucking Kirk Hammett shows up out of nowhere

  74. Forck

    Obviously an allusion to of wolf and man, but also a song about an alcoholic, abusive father.

  75. Andy Godin

    Adam Savage scratching at the door

  76. Tomversal

    3 years on I still listen to this thinking "Metallica is back"

  77. Carlos césar Cruz Jiménez

    Este tipo de canciones aburren. No necesita ser tan larga, además no es thrash. Por canciones como estas los últimos discos de Metallica se vuelven tediosos. Comenzaron bien con Hardwired y Atlas rise, de ahí en adelante el álbum pierde consistencia volviendo a ese sonido insípido del Load y el Reload una vez más.

  78. PunkMahyem

    Who's here after wm33

  79. Con Joe

    That's dudes blanket wife has a nice pair of bangers🤘

  80. Psyberius Black

    That riff going into the solo and outro 🤘

  81. Flamestar320 power to the people

    James's laughter at 6:17 is awesome!

  82. Kappeler

    Dave Mustaine in 1983 be like "Am I fired?"
