Testament - D.N.R. Lyrics




Lies... broken dreams
Dismal past
is there more in life...
should I... know
Ending wars... ending pain
Ending of mankind is insane
and there's all the possibilities
some will fail and some will achieve
Even through in my youth
I didn't know but what can I do
and I may not ever see
In my pain, my suffering
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me...

Life... lost unseen
behind the mask
and with the open arms will I grasp
Open doors... open minds...
Ending all the madness I hate

And I may not ever see
In my pain, my Misery
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me... DNR...

Wing of sadness... will
hold my prayers
all this madness... will
end my fears
contempt in life
Conceptualize, wrong or right
The ending of life...
God save me now...

Time... end it now
No going back
Can you see the light as you pass
Ending wars, ending pain...
Waited all my life to be saves

And I will not ever see
All the pain and suffering
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me... DNR

  6. o costa

    Chuck Billy’s different vocals since he was young wow probably the best metal singer ever!

  7. Godflesh88 ver2.0

    I gotta say it swells my heart with pride to read these comments here. I'm hitting 50 years old in a few months and I grew up listening to this stuff. Glad to see many metalheads both young and old are still holding the fort down.
    I salute you brothers and sisters!

  8. Fabio Novelli

  11. Nathaniel Boerigter

    I think we all agree that anthrax shouldn't be part of the big 4. Testament should.

    Arvind Shastri

    In my opinion Metallica should not be in Big 4 they never released a pure thrash metal album after And Justice For All

    Fucking awesome

  35. Afro Tank

    amazing

  36. alexander ferus

    Awesome metal 🤘🎸💀☠️🤘

  37. CyMBoLiK CyCoZiZ

    I don’t know how I didn’t know is was Dave Lombardo but I never really felt slayer that much. But this is a great record. Many Thrash Legends have Moved around the OG Bands Paul bostaph is a fav helping slayer now like Gary holt, and exodus shovel headed kill Machine is a Lit Bostaph record 44 Magnum Opus is insanely dope. Tom hunting fav but only exodus for him. Gene hogland has some nice testament feel but unique. Mike Mangini has dope annihilator Jams but Jeff waters gets pretty’s much a New but Talented drummer ever record. Anup sastry is a dope drummer but have to be if u tour with Jeff loomis, sawLive, and Marty Friedman. Lastly I’ll mention Pete weber but me and havok we raised in COLORAD-YO. MileHighHat Blazing Dank Denver Nuggets and green rains supreme to Me over Gold. They need to add a blunt to the pick ax dude and add a little haze to the mountain seen. Make it lite purple. And Carlos from Bonded By Blood has some Great albums with feed the beast and exiles to earth. Exiled was most technical, Fast, and Shred fest on all levels and Aladdin’s vocals were the shit. Bunch haters lead to the demise of BBB... best New Wave Band there was and smashed live and blazed with them in the van. Cool down to earth maybe exiled there but me and Carlos favorite were both Tom hunting cuz it’s Fucking Tom Hunting

  38. Daniel Mc Donald

    Fucking BRUTAL tune!!
    LOVE IT!!! \M/

  39. Insidious Disease

    One of my favourite Testament songs

  40. Madmetal of Sixties

    Lombardo The Engine.

  41. Ramón Alejandro Quinteros Cárdenas

    Megaflott

  44. jarmo tverin

  45. Joel Wilnierak

    Lombardo playing a blast?!?!?!?! HOLY MOTHER OF GOD

    blppt

    He also plays a couple of blasts on Supremist on Christ Illusion.

  46. Adeeb Shakhawat

    Missing a kickass Skolnick solo after 3:33

    Todd Taylor

    Skolnick isn't even on this album. Its Peterson and James Murphy

  47. Arnulfo Castillo

    I remember that The Gathering was on Spotify, now it's not there :(

    Leonel Castañarez

    Arnulfo Castillo Is back my man!!

  48. REZ BEATZ {Rezinated Productionz}

    My father used to drum for these guys way back when i was a kid. His name was Alex Joe Cabrera. Marty if your reading this lemme know.

  49. Todor Kolev

    GOD SAVE ME NOOOOWWWW!!!!!!!!! Fuckin brilliant

  50. Kleyson Pontes

    Concerning to me...the most powerful metal song ever.

  51. juan Motime

    Dave Lombardo : plays drums like a belt fed Horsewhip ....INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!

  52. kevin timperley

    Lombardo makes everything he plays on sound better

  53. Noel Guard

    Owned this album since it came out, never gets old..So much fucking energy

  54. Stance Sub

    かっこいい!

  55. Zvonimir Stupac

    Dave fucking Lombardo

  56. Cody Hawk

    This is the BEST Testament song of the post Ritual era! Absolute GEM! Fucking cannot wait to see TESTAMENT/Sepultura in Detroit TONIGHT!!!!

  57. fartoriginator

    the comments in these threads are always the same "this is not the absolute best sound that I has ever graced my ears"

    this is good shit, deal with itttttt

  58. Arturo Almazan

    the album that brought Testament back into thrash metal legend form . souls of black was the worse.

  59. Waspinator1998

    It's times like this that I wish my system audio had a higher maximum volume.

  60. Belial Zodiark

    Im Here for the viking dancer LOL.

  61. Xotamayo Tupac

    DAVE FUCKING LOMBARDO

  62. alexander ferus

    excellent Metal \m/!!

  63. THE WRATHCHILD

    This entire album is shit, but I still like it...

    Kramoris

    BLACKMETALWILL What

    THE WRATHCHILD

    Pepper this album, it's terrible by testaments standards and barely has any guitar solos, but it is still listenable

    Huehue Huehuehue

    I understand your disappointment regarding the lack of solos, but come on dude.. The drumming, the riffs, Chucks voice - all in all, it's ridiculously good, precise, technically phenomenal and pleasing, for sure.. Heavy metal is not all about solos, it can survive without it from time to time.

  64. Justin VonGrav

    ppl talked shit about the groove of Low and the death metal of Demonic so Testament threw both styles together and made The Gathering which is a fucking masterpiece.

    That Guitar Guy

    Low is a masterpiece too.

    Ayaan Bret Mitchell

    How do people all say demonic was a death metal record? They're virtually all slow groove songs. A lot downtuned (to fit in with the Korn lot) but nothing death metal per se. To be death metal it goes by BPM.

  65. THE WRATHCHILD

    Lies... broken dreams
    Dismal past
    is there more in life...
    should I... know
    Ending wars... ending pain
    Ending of mankind is insane
    and there's all the possibilities
    some will fail and some will achieve
    Even through in my youth
    I didn't know but what can I do
    and I may not ever see
    In my pain, my suffering
    Can not live for the rest of my life
    DNR Do not resuscitate me...

    Life... lost unseen
    behind the mask
    and with the open arms will I grasp
    Open doors... open minds...
    Ending all the madness I hate

    And I may not ever see
    In my pain, my Misery
    Can not live for the rest of my life
    DNR Do not resuscitate me... DNR...

    Wing of sadness... will
    hold my prayers
    all this madness... will
    end my fears
    contempt in life
    Conceptualize, wrong or right
    The ending of life...
    God save me now...

    Time... end it now

  68. frode vik

    the best testament album this both in songs and sound

    Santiago Cuello

    The worst? What hahaha

    Kayden

    the worst album is by far demonic

    Misha Chizhovskiy

    metallica sucks

    jon osborne

    no metallica really does suck....hipster has nothing to do with it. Name calling is a direct reflection of one's lack of intelligence.....

    jon osborne

    and you just proved my point...name calling is the go-to for gutless fucks who sit on youtube talking shit cuz they dont have the intellectual capacity to form a valid argument....

  69. David Whitton

    It's becoming a staple song

  70. Omar Martinez

    wow, this is the first Testament song i've heard. What else have i been missing out on?...

    Robert Demeter

    Eye love you sollostyles :- )

    Robert Demeter

    Omat, Start with Practice What you Preach and The New Order as your first 2 Testament albums, like me back in the 80's :-)

  71. Droogie128

    I bet Dave Lombardo could win a NASCAR race pedaling a bicycle.

    pamparitas

    with his dick XD

    Banaj Nebojša

    The bicycle can survive until the end of that race is yet to be invented.

    Martine en Flip

    :-) :-) :-)

    Spring Bloom

    Hes no Paul Bostaph

    evan taylor

    Did he drum on the whole album?

  72. Dodgebeerjohndeere n

    I cant think of a Slayer song that Dave drummed this good on. To bad he didn't stay with Testament

    vgmaster9

    He should've joined Demolition Hammer when he had the chance.

    Dimitris dm

    Dead Skin Mask has nothing to do with this one....War Ensemble yes

    Vio-Noob _

    Praise of death.. he slays it on that song

    The Observer

    @Droogie128 no

    Ausgebombt

    At dawn they sleep?

  73. William Banks

    This is the way it outta be !!!!!!!!

  74. Marco Imbelli Cai

    i love the music, but the artwork is a complete shit imo

  75. fartoriginator

    this song just kicked my ass

  76. Thiago Coutinho

    I just love this tune and this album! And when I found out that Dave Lombardo is the man behind the drums on on this album I just surrender!

    Sean T.

    He does add that extra KICK 😉🤘

  77. conconexplosion

    This song is so heavy live

  78. GLADYS ANGARITA

    severo masmelo

  79. Jordi Boada Martinez

    Thrash Metal as is it!!!

    WatcherFromThePlateauofShorn141

    +Jordi Boada Martinez hi

    WatcherFromThePlateauofShorn141

    +Renegade Loco hi

    Aetred

    its "god send me down" -.-

    Jesus barroso riveriego

    Aetred official lyrics doesn't say that

    Sebastián Díaz

    @Aetred I have the cd booklet and its god save me now

  81. Alex Ferus

    excellent metal \m/

  82. Fet Thunderdome

    this record signed the return of the METAL, after the '90 which tried to kill the metal.

    Robert Demeter

    Metal will never die :- )

  83. Milan Kolarski

    I get a huge boner on when I hear this intro. \m/ \m/ \m/

  84. bartek sitko

    i think i should really start listening to them :3

    Cody Hawk

    bartek sitko Practice what you preach is a HALLMARK record... many Testament records are great, The New Order comes to mind... as does the LEGACY for sure... but Practice what you Preach is OUT FUCKING STANDING

    That Guitar Guy

    bartek sitko if you like this, check out Low. Good shit.

    bartek sitko

    actually got to see them live in dublin 3 days ago

    derekobs

    @Cody Hawk Practice and souls are their wprst of 80s recsthe worst

  85. Sandy Kandy

    I fucked a viking to this song \(-_-)/

    ToothlessWizard

    +mouni klameno haha :D

    Sonya Roberts

    No a viking fucked YOU

    Mircea Crusitu

    yea but you don't really look like a viking,more like a rap listener

    Dwoprus

    I'm betting he's not going around bragging about it, though.

    newblife

    nice phase kiddo

  86. Exhumed Carcass

    yea didn't lars ulrich record the drums on this album

    Joe Theriault

    no dave lombardo

    Wolf K

    +Joe Theriault I believe it was an attempt at a joke.

    Bienfurion

    how many Lars are needed to play the drums of this song?

    blppt

    One. Play the song with one kick drum, and punch in the second kick drum on ProTools later.

  87. Kevin Poynter

    damn, you could get whiplash from listening to this

  88. elaith80

    Can't believe it was 16 years ago, way better of the modern "metal"!!!

    WatcherFromThePlateauofShorn141

    @elaith80 Yeah, it is.

    John Ghost

    Vektor is quite dope

    Luis Castillo

    There are some great modern metal bands, such as Havok, Violator, Nervosa, Municipal Waste, Evile, and so on.

    Best Metal and Rock Lists

    elaith80 new thrash is still great

    Moss-Trooper

    New thrash metal is good but all this new metalcore stuff with the guitars downtuned to drop A and constant switching between growls and pop vocals just doesn't compare to old school thrash 🤘

  89. mansoldworld

    All those years i was missing this song... Fuck

    Matthew Jackson

    +mansoldworld To quote Morpheus........welcome....to the real world.

  90. Jared Bunn

    This song isn't too hard on guitar, all rhythm, but man is it fast!!!

    LAYUCHEBI

    Equivocating Toaster im scared even to try to attempt to play :)

    Right Hand Modulator

    The fact that it is rhythm is what makes it hard. Learning the chords and the licks: easy peezy lemon squeezy. Getting the right hand patterns down and playing them beat by beat: How de the fuck does Eric Peterson do this?! Is his right hand made of an adamantium alloy of some sort?!

  91. wkr64691

    i am absolutely hooked on the chorus of this song.  fucking badass.

  92. Pora Diana

    drums,drums,drums.............hell yeah,thumbs up for Dave!!!!!!!!! :D

    Christ RattleHead

    +Pora Diana The "Dave" are the Best ^^

    Pora Diana

    indeed.

    Capt_Stoopid

    Hail Lombardo DNR!!!

    Sandor Clegane

    @Christ RattleHead I whish he could have spent more time with this band
