“Moth Into Flame” – Metallica [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

Metallica “Moth Into Flame” Lyrics

Blacked out
Pop queen, amphetamine
The screams crashed into silence

Tapped out
Doused in the gasoline
The high times going timeless

Decadence
Death of the innocence
The pathway starts to spiral

Infamy
All for publicity
Destruction going viral

Light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, kill the truth
You’re falling, but you think you’re flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built a higher wall
Yesterday
Now you’re thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame

Twisted
Backstabbing wicked
The delusion absolution

Perjurer
Fame is the murderer
Seduce you into ruin

Light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, tell the truth
You’re falling, but you think you’re flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built the higher wall
Yesterday
Now you’re thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame
Burn

Guarantee your name, you go and kill yourself
The vultures feast around you still
Overdose on shame and insecurity
If one won’t do that fistful will

Death scene
Black hearse the limousine
A grave filled with seduction

Vaccine
Fame does the murdering
She builds up for destruction

So light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, no excuse
You’re falling, but you think you’re flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built the higher wall
Yesterday
Now you’re thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame

Addicted to the
Fame

Metallica have shared a Tom Kirk-directed music video for “Moth Into Flame,” the second single from their upcoming album album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

Metallica deliver an old school sound on the song, full of Hetfield’s chugging guitar riffs, Kirk’s lightning fast soloing, and Ulrich’s thunderous double-bass drumming. With a song that rocks this hard, the video let’s us watch the boys in action under dimly lit lightbulbs.

Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is scheduled to be released on November 18, 2016. Pick it up on Metallica’s official website. Last month, the band shared a music video for the album’s first single, “Hardwired.”

Metallica have also announced 2016 South American tour dates, including a members only show this Tuesday at New York City’s Webster Hall.
