Song lyrics
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!"

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.

Amazing solo, awesome song.
I made my friend listen to it once (he hates metal), he went like "Oh, nice song" at the beginning, then he ended up screaming and cursing at me at the end. xD

Personally, I liked St. Anger. Though not by a long shot Metallica's best material,I found it at least listenable. I prefer Master of Puppets and Ride the lightning myself.
