Metallica - Until It Sleeps Lyrics




Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run, but it stays right by my side

So tear me open, pour me out
There’s things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There’s things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I’m clean

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you’ve chosen me
Don’t want your grip
Don’t want your greed
Don’t want it

I’ll tear me open, make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me until it sleeps

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you
Until it sleeps

I don’t want it

So tear me open but beware
There’s things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me... till clean

I’ll tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps
Until it sleeps

  28. Jaset Wells

    Awesome song. Creepy video if I’m honest.

  29. Wydawnictwo Ż.U.K.

    I always tought "load" and "REload" was end of metallica. However, "Reload" actually sucks, but "Load" isnt as bad as i tought. So as fan of 80's metallica.i can aprove load

  30. GABRIELA POUT

    Am i the only one that feels just howuch jason is clueless on what to do

  31. RECKLESS

    Este video está lleno de referencias a la historia del arte concretamente a veo muchas referencias al jardín de las delicias

  32. Sir Reeve

    This isn't Metallica it's Monty Python, get a life people LMAO

    I love the Alice in Chains and The Cure influences. It's completely gripping. One of my favorite Metallica songs.

  35. SASORI

    uglyyyyyy

  36. Krystal Woody

    "Where do I take this pain of mine?

  37. Patrick Omalley

    Get well soon James if it wasn't 4 your band and linkin park I dont think I would be doing the positive things I'm doing today

  38. lesly ford

    December 28th 2019 watching it before go to sleep 🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻

  39. Roberto Portilla

    Cuándo metallica paso de dominar el universo a dar lástima y risa 😂 😂 😂 😂

    Peter Wayne Legend

    Bueno, está canción se basa en los problemas personales de James, específicamente sobre el cáncer de su madre, lo cual es muy doloroso, pero bueno, todos tienen diferentes opiniones

    Roberto Portilla

    @Peter Wayne Legend yo me refiero estrictamente a la música en los 90 metallica se vendió a mtv ya no era una banda de metal se unió a la movida de la música alternativa ya no era la banda que dominaba el metal

    Peter Wayne Legend

    @Roberto Portilla
    Ah, bueno, gracias por aclararlo, ten cuidado, hay gente que se toma a mal los comentarios por ahí

    Where do I take this pain of mine
    I run, but it stays right my side
    So tear me open, pour me out
    There's things inside that scream and shout
    And the pain still hates me
    So hold me, until it sleeps
    Just like the curse, just like the stray
    You feed it once, and now it stays
    So tear me open, but beware
    There's things inside without a care
    And the dirt still stains me
    So wash me, until I'm clean
    It grips you, so hold me
    It stains you, so hold me
    It hates you, so hold me
    It holds you, so hold me
    Until it sleeps
    So tell me why you've chosen me
    Don't want your grip, don't want your greed
    I'll tear me open, make you gone
    No more can you hurt anyone
    And the fear still shakes me
    So hold me, until it sleeps
    It grips you, so hold me
    It stains you, so hold me
    It hates you, so hold me
    It holds you, so hold me
    Until it sleeps
    I don't want it
    So tear me open, but beware
    The things inside without a care
    And the dirt still stains me
    So wash me, 'till I'm clean
    I'll tear me open, make you gone
    No longer will you hurt anyone
    And the fear still shapes me
    So hold me, until it sleeps
    Until it sleeps

  41. Alpa Chinos

    Popular opinion: teens who “just discovered” Metallica and wanna tell YouTube about it, go fuck yourselves

    Julie Schultz

    Nonsense. I love to see kids discover Metallica. Let them talk.

  47. Scorpio Rising

    I didn't know this was an unpopular Metallica song? It was always one of my favs. If people don't like this song it's probably because they are lucky enough not to relate to it ♥

    Hahajjahajahahahhajahshahahha que gay puta que o pariu Kakakakakkakakakakakkakak

  74. flywerasew

    This song holds so many thoughts that people with psychological problems make. These invisible conversations with themselves trying to figure out what the fuck is happening inside them.
    Every single line here is a testament.


    And the fear still shakes me
    And the hate still shapes me

  75. aaarthur

    metallica emo version

  80. Devin Howard

    Best metallica song #changemymind

    Agarthan Reaper

    ok. listen to halo on fire,dyers eve,low mans lyric,jump in the fire

  81. Justin Richardson

    Anthrax collaborates with public enemy, and they're praised, but Metallica releases two spectacular albums (load/reload), with a different sound, they're labeled sellouts? It's just unfair.

  82. Oliver Lade 1p

    Bruh this sh*t bad bruh, boneless

  83. Ricardo Manzano

    1:42 neymar en metallica

  84. R.I.P Cliff Burton

    Well.... this is not the worst Metallica song but this is




    Kinda bad

    Etang Bose

    It’s good just not as metal as the old stuff this was a rough era for them load/reload was to radio friendly and almost groovy/jazzy/pop at times

    R.I.P Cliff Burton

    @Etang Bose well yea.
