Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Guilty as charged, but damn it, it ain't right
There's someone else controlling me
Death in the air, strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me
...

Ride the Lightning

Metallica


[Verse 1]
Guilty as charged, but damn it, it ain't right
There's someone else controlling me
Death in the air, strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me

[Pre-Chorus]
Who made you God to say
"I'll take your life from you?"

[Chorus]
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

[Verse 2]
Wait for the sign to flick the switch of death
It's the beginning of the end
Sweat, chilling cold, as I watch death unfold
Consciousness, my only friend

[Pre-Chorus]
My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?

[Chorus]
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

[Bridge]
Someone help me
Oh please, God, help me!
They're trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]
Someone help me
Oh please, God, help me!
They're trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

[Verse 3]
Time moving slow, the minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see
How true is this? Just get it over with
If this is true, just let it be

[Pre-Chorus]
Wakened by a horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream

[Chorus]
Flash before my eyes
Now it's time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

"Ride the Lightning" Track Info



Metallica's gut-wrenching “Ride The Lightning” is about spending your final moments in an electric chair. The title was taken from Stephen King's The Stand.

We just got into some social topics. The death penalty was a big question and the electric chair. That's heavy. What if that was you, mistakenly? That's what that song was about, being accidentally found guilty and put to death with no way to stop it. It was just a matter of putting myself into other people's situations and trying to get these feelings out.

James Hetfield, Rolling Stone
