Prize to who guesses it

these are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs; i looked at the lyrics and thought it had some pretty good poetry in it too. kudos to who knows the song and author.


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

A word of caution Noxxor, Metallica has sued many others for copyright infringement. I wouldn't touch their lyrics with a ten foot pole. Even though I am partial to Enter Sandman.

I once met their drummer's father, Torben Ulrich, at Hoylake. He was playing in a tennis tournament and showed a great sense of humour.

I have no idea but I'm going to guess based on the subject matter.

Is it Crosby Stills Nash and Young?

Jean-Paul, Pam the first guesser, was correct the song is "One" by Metallica from their CD ....And Justice for All.
