Lyrics:
Verse 1
Pride you took
Pride you feel 
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Not the word
Not the love
Not that you felt from above

It feeds
It grows
It clouds all that you will know
Deceit
Deceive
Decide just what you believe

Chorus
I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail....
FOLLOW THE GOD THAT FAILED

Verse 2
Find your peace
Find your say
Find the smooth road on your way

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

------------------------------
Ok here are few notes about this song!
As you propably know this song is by Metallica and is from their best
album to date "The Black Album". What you propably don't know is the
following:

Firstly, Metallica hardly play this song on their concerts. I have no
idea why though. My guess is that they only play their best 3-4 songs
True" "Nothing Else Matters" and "Wherever I May Roam". They Also play
"The Unforgiven" but no so often.  

THe lyrics to this song are James' (Hetfield) favourite on this album.
Here's why: "My parents were in this christian sect long time before
they even met and were really into it. When my mother got cancer,
following her religion, she did not want to apply for medical treatement
and died. And I still feel responsible for her death as i could have
prevented it!" These are  the words of James himself.

Oh yeah..this was also the first song ever on the album to
be heard by the press!

Anyway...hope you like the story and sh*t. Have FUN!
