One was created by Metallica in the Album "...And Justice For All" which is an album about the government being corrupt and greedy for money but One goes away from that message and makes a new sad story
, that even I find extremely sad. One is about a soldier in WW1
that stepped on a landmine
, who survived and got his sight, legs, arms, hearing, and voice taken away from him. When he is at the hospital he pieces together in his head what's happening and he thinks it's just a really bad nightmare. After awhile he remembers when his father taught him Morse code
. So him not wanting to be trapped inside his body forever until he dies 70 years later ,because he was only like in his 20s without any kids and only a wife, he nods his head in Morse code
saying "SOS, HELP". After some time he says "KILL ME" over and over again in Morse code. With him not knowing if anyone saw him he hopes he will be given a mercy kill
. The General of the army is in the room with a commander and the commander tells the General what he is saying. The General tells them not to kill him and keep him alive not knowing what to do. They keep him alive and he is forever trapped inside his body until he dies.
