One 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 me

Now that the war is through with me
I'm waking up, I cannot see
That there is 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

Darkness 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 song is about a man who was in a bomb attack and life absolutely SUCKS he wants God to end his life. I agree with Metallica fan it is a really sad song but even though i'm a girl

Why is this crap still up here?!?! He added lines from the video and messed up the rest of the lyrics! Take this crap down

STUPIDS! The person who posted these lyrics also put the things that the video say in this. Go watch the OFFICIAL MUSIC VID!

These lyrics are wrong. This beginning does not exist in the recorded song and this is missing the whole last half of the song and it won't let me change it!!!

Stupid, Stupid editor why do you have to be so stupid but other than that, this is a amazing song cept kirk sucks

No stupid!! The song was written about a book called Johnny's Got A Gun. They made a movie about the book. Just like For Whom the Bell Tolls is also based on book.

The lyrics are like that because if you look up the song on YouTube it has a music vid the lyrics wear from that vid
