    I can't remember anything
    Can't tell if this is true or dream
    Deep down inside I feel to scream
    This terrible silence stops with me

    Now that the war is through with me
    I'm waking up, I cannot see
    That there's not much left of me
    Nothing is real but pain now

    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, wake me

    Back in the womb it's much too real
    In pumps life that I must feel
    But can't look forward to reveal
    Look to the time when I'll live
    Fed through the tube that sticks in me
    Just like a wartime novelty
    Tied to machines that make me be
    Cut this life off from me

    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, wake me

    Now the world is gone I'm just one
    Oh God help me
    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, help me

    Imprisoning me
    All that I see
    Absolute horror
    I cannot live
    I cannot die
    Trapped in myself
    Body my holding cell

    Landmine has taken my sight
    Taken my speech
    Taken my hearing
    Taken my arms
    Taken my legs
    Taken my soul
    Left me with life in hell

      This is THE song. It sounds even better live; where it's dropped a semitone, and an amazing pyro intro preceeds it. I was literally about to cry when I heard it live.
      This is original recording from the concert I've been to. link

      Still can't stop thinking about that night, even though it was more than 4 months ago.

      This is by far my favorite Metallica song. The lyrics are very powerful, to the point it almost makes me cry. To know that the treatment of war time vets is as low now as it was then, makes me furious. I have had many of friends loose their lives or have been maimed and had to come back to a less than appriciative United States. I wish more people would listen to the profoundness of this song and treat us vets a lot better. After all "ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL!"

      SEMPER FI!!

      For the 'old school' Metallica fans, this song is the first and last commercial hit by Metallica that holds up to "our" standards. A band that used to one finger salute the music world, finally gave in to commercial acclaim after this songs album. Sure songs like Enter Sandman had the hook and such to become hits, but songs like "One" are what fans of Metallica from the beginning became used to and were what the foundation of their greatness was founded on.
