Bad Seed is the eighth song from 1997's album ReLoad. It was written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett, with a length of 4:05.

Live

This song was never fully played live by the band, but, in many gigs from Load and ReLoad support tour, the band played an "instrumental edit" of it. This version appears in Cunning Stunts video, before the first song (So What). The full version was never released in an official single.

Lyrics

Come clean, fess up
Tell all, spill gut
Off the veil, stand revealed
Show the cards, bring it on, break the seal

Ladies and gentlemen,
step right up
And see the man who told
the truth

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Now you're choking on
the bad seed
On the bad seed
Choking

Let on, load off
Confess, cast off
At the mercy, the cat is out
Drop the disguise, spit it up,
spit it out

And now, what you've all
been waiting for
I give you He Who Suffers
the Truth

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Now you're choking on the
bad seed
Choking on the bad seed

Off the veil, stand revealed
Bring it on, break the seal
At the mercy, cat is out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it out now

At the mercy

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Choking on the seed

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
You're choking on the bad seed

Off the veil, stand revealed
Bring it on, break the seal
At the mercy, cat is out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it out now

Choking on the bad seed
