Metallica : Hardwired

Hardwired is the first and title track off of Metallica’s tenth album Hardwired…to Self-Destruct.

It is also the first single from the album. The song was written and composed by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. During the writing phase, the song’s code name was “Riff Charge”.

This song has been well received, as fans in comment areas overwhelmingly find it to be a return to the more thrash style of Metallica’s earlier years.

Lycris

In the name of desperation-
In the name of wretched pain-
In the name of all creation-
Gone insane-

We’re so fucked-
Shit outta luck-
Hardwired to self-destruct-

On the way to paranoia-
On the crooked borderline-
On the way to great destroyer-
Doomed design-

We’re so fucked-
Shit outta luck-
Hardwired to self-destruct-

Once upon a planet burning-
Once upon a flame-
Once upon a fear returning-
All in vain-

Do you feel that hope is fading?-
Do you comprehend?-
Do you feel it terminating?-
In the end-

We’re so fucked-
Shit outta luck-
Hardwired to self-destruct-
Hardwired to self-destruct-

Self-destructx3-
