Metallica Just a Bullet Away

METALLICA - Just a Bullet Away


WRITTEN BY:Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett, Trujillo
LÄNGE:07:11
ALBUM:Beyond Magnetic


ZUM SONG:

'Just A Bullet Away' wurde durch das Leben und den frühen Tod von Alice In Chains Sänger Layne Staley inspiriert. Die Band hatte während der Death Magnetic aufnahmen sogar ein Foto von Staley im Studio hängen. James Hetfield sagte dazu:

“The theme of our new album is that we’re all gonna die sometime. Just like the poles of a magnet, some people are drawn to death and others are repulsed by it, but we all have to deal with it. Lyrically, it started as a bit of a tribute to Layne Staley and all those who’ve martyred themselves in the name of rock and roll. But it grew and evolved from there.”

“I know Jerry Cantrell quite well and learned about Layne through him… I could see some of the things Jerry went through to keep that band together. I started writing a song around a Layne Staley type – a rock ‘n’ roll martyr magnetized by death. Why did he choose that path, someone with such talent?”

Just A bullet Away ist aus den Demos von ‘Shine’ und ‘Holy Revolver’ entstanden, welche auch vor Albumrelease als Teaser auf der Metallica Website veröffentlicht wurden.

ORIGINAL LYRICS


ÜBERSETZUNG


Just a Bullet Away
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett, Trujillo)

All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
All reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath a skin
A hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
And the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel
Suck on the barrel
Suck it 'til it's gone dry

For all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Redemption purify
Will nothing satisfy
The scars just multiply
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Twisting in apocalypse
Death upon the fingertips
Frigid metal touches lips
And the shine of the midnight revolver

'Cause you lied

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head

Caressing death again
Becomes the heroin
Forbidden medicine
Puts a shine on the midnight revolver

Eternal borderline
All the faces intertwine
Oh God... now I see mine
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel
Suck on the barrel
Suck... suck 'til it's dry

For all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Down In Misery
Down In Misery

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head

All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
Reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath a skin
A hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
And the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel
Suck on the barrel
Suck... suck 'til it's dry

Do all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

'Cause you lied
Yes you lied

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head
Just a Bullet Away
(Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett, Trujillo)
