Alter Bridge - Metalingus

I've been defeated and brought down
Oh, dropped to my knees when hope ran out
Oh, the time has come to change my ways

On this day
I see clearly
Everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all, leave it all behind
Yeah

I'll never long for what might've been
No, regret won't waste my life again
Oh, I won't look back!
I'll fight to remain!

On this day
I see clearly
Everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind

On this day
It's so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

Fear will kill me, all I could be
Lift these sorrows
Let me breathe
Could you set me free?
Could you set me free!

On this day
I see clearly
Everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind
On this day
It's so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

Like "In Loving Memory," "Metalingus" was never a single but it is one of the band's most popular songs and is a live staple. The title, originally a working title, is an amalgam of the words metal and the suffix -lingus, meaning tongue. The song was used by WWE Superstar Edge as his entrance theme from 2004 until his retirement in 2011. He then made his return to the ring in 2020, using the theme once more. The song is well known for its aggressive heavy sound, which foreshadowed the band going in a heavier metal sound on their later albums.
