“Now That We’re Dead” – Metallica [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

When darkness falls, may it be
That we should see the light
When reaper calls, may it be
That we walk straight and right

When doubt returns, may it be
That faith shall permeate our scars
When we’re seduced, then may it be
That we not deviate our cause

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live, we can live forever

When all is pain, may it be
It’s all we’ve ever known
When flame consumes, may it be
It warms our dying bones

When loss has won, may it be
It’s you I’m madly fighting for
When kingdom comes, may it be
We walk right through that open door

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live, we can live forever

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live, we can live forever
Return to ashes, shed this skin
Beyond the black, we rise again
We shall live forever

Throughout the day, Metallica have been sharing a new music video every two hours for song’s off their upcoming LP, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Above, you can watch the fourth video of the series, this one for the tune “Now That We’re Dead” — which has a bit of a Judas Priest feel.

Directed by Herring & Herring, we see the band rocking out the hard-driving song fueled by Lars Ulrich’s skilled drumming and Robert Trujillo’s strong bass playing. As the video progresses, haunting images come across the screen of each band member’s faces that are reminiscent of the album’s cover artwork.

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

Other music videos the band has previously shared from the album are “Hardwired,” “Moth Into Flame,” “Atlas, Rise!,” “Dream No More,” “Confusion,” and “ManUNkind.”

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