“Atlas, Rise!” – Metallica [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

Bitterness and burden
Curses rest on thee
Solitaire and sorrow
All eternity
Save the Earth and claim perfection
Deem the mass and blame rejection
Hold the pose, fein perception
Grudges break your back

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on
Right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, rise!
How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, rise!

Crucify and witness
Circling the sun
Bastardized in ruin
What have you become?
Blame the world and blame your maker
Wish ’em to the undertaker
Crown yourself the other savior
So you carry on

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on
Right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, rise!
How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, rise!

Masquerade as maker
Heavy is the crown
Beaten down and broken
Drama wears you down
Overload, the martyr stumbles
Hit the ground and Heaven crumbles
All alone the fear shall humble
Swallow all your pride

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on
Right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, rise!
How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, rise!

Metallica have given their fans a special Halloween treat as they’ve shared a third single from their upcoming album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. Go behind the scenes and watch the boys rock “Atlas, Rise!” above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

The song clocks in at six and a half glorious minutes of precisely timed guitar and bass riffs, and drummer Lars Ulrich provides the fuel for the fire. “Atlas, Rise!” has an epic, story-telling vibe to its progression and highlights Metallica’s tightness as a band, like their 1984 song “The Call of Ktulu” and their 1986 tune “Orion.”

Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is scheduled to be released on November 18, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.

The band has previously shared music videos for a couple other songs from the album: “Hardwired” and “Moth Into Flame.”

Metallica are currently out on a South American tour. For more music, news, and tour information about Metallica, check out their Zumic artist page.
