Song
Death Magnetic (album)

My Apocalypse is the final track on Metallica's ninth studio album, Death Magnetic, and the forty-first single by the band. The song could be considered a look back to songs like "Damage, Inc." or "Dyers Eve", being a short (5:01) and high tempo ending to an album, just like on Master of Puppets and ...And Justice For All.

About

"My Apocalypse" is about a brutal car wreck. "Crushing metal, ripping skin, tossing body, mannequin, spilling blood, bleeding gas", very much describes a car crash.

Lyrics

 Claustrophobic
 Crawl out of this skin
 Heart explosive
 Reach in, pull that pin
 
 Fear thy name: extermination
 Desecrate inhale the fire
 
     So we cross that line
     Into the grips
     Total eclipse
     Suffer unto my apocalypse
 
 Deadly vision
 Prophecy reveal
 Death Magnetic
 Pulling closer still
 
 Fear thy name: annihilation
 Desolate inhale the fire
 
     So we cross that line
     Into the grips
     Total eclipse
     Suffer unto my apocalypse
 
 Crushing metal, ripping skin
 Tossing body, mannequin
 Spilling blood, bleeding gas
 
 Mangle flesh, snapping spine
 Dripping bloody valentine
 Shatter face, spitting glass
 
 Split apart
 Split apart
 Split apart
 Spit
 Spit it out
 
 What makes me drift a little bit closer?
 Dead man takes the steering wheel
 What makes me know it's time to cross over?
 Born to repeat until I feel
 
 See through the skin, bones they all rattle 
 Future and past, they disagree
 Flesh falls away, bones they all shatter
 I start to see the end in me
 
 Claustrophobic
 Climb out of this skin
 Heart explosive
 Reach in, pull that pin
 
 Violate, annihilate
 All wounds unto my eyes
 Obliterate, exterminate
 As life itself denied
 
 Fear thy name as hell awakens
 Destiny inhale the fire
 
     But we've crossed that line
     Into the grips
     Total eclipse
     Suffer unto my apocalypse
 
     Tyrant awaken my apocalypse
     Demon awaken my apocalypse
     Heaven awaken my apocalypse
     Suffer forever my apocalypse
