Metallica’s official music video for “Screaming Suicide,” from the album “72 Seasons” available April 14th, 2023.

“‘Screaming Suicide’ addresses the taboo word of suicide. The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another, I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”

——

If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please reach out for help.

LYRICS

Welcome to this life
Born into the fight
Here to claim your dream
Look you in the eye
Patch the broken sky
Craving dopamine
Then my voice appears
Teaching you of fears
Are you good enough?
You don’t recognize
Head is full of lies
You should just give up
 
Listen well, better listen well
Listen well, better listen well
 
Don’t ever speak my name
Remember you’re to blame
Keep me inside
Keep me inside
My name is suicide
 
Curse another day
Spirit locked away
Punish and deprive
Hate to be awake
Living a mistake
More dead than alive
Then a voice appears
Whisper in your ears
“You are good enough”
Throwing down a rope
A lifeline of hope
Never give you up
 
Listen well, better listen well
Listen well, better listen well
 
Don’t ever speak my name
Remember you’re to blame
Keep me inside
Keep me inside
My name is suicide

Terrified in sleepless nights
Caught in spotlight dead to rights
Isolate and fight your mind
Telling you you’re left behind

My lying voice inside
Keeps drinking cyanide
And no more can you run
Into the sun

Terrified, sleepless nights
Caught in spotlight dead to rights
Isolate and fight your mind
Telling you you’re left behind

And now you speak my name
You’ve given back the blame
Keep me deep inside
Don’t you keep me inside
Screaming suicide

Now that I’m exposed inside
Shined a light on cyanide
I’m no longer needed here
Now you’ve faced your biggest fear

Written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich & Robert Trujillo

    Sounds like a Death Magnetic outtake… basically turns into Cyanide at the end. This is what they spent the last 6 years writing?

    I hate to say this but a huge portion of this fanbase is only contributing to our chaos and destruction. There was a time when I wanted to lift humanity to a better place. Now I'm "live and let die". Give em hell.

    If you are contemplating suicide. It's because you are trapped in a space of complete self absorption.

    Life is hard.

    Imagine being a lower life form.

    We've got it so good.

    Cold, wet, sick, dying, no home, no friends, no life.

    Remember the old video from the song " One"?

    That's not you.

    Be grateful, even when you don't want to be.

    This place is such an incredible gift.

    I will deeply miss it when I'm gone .

    Imagine going to the gym and committing suicide because you added too much weight to your routine.

    Pain is a beautiful thing.

    Embrace it.

    Challenge it.

    Grow.
