I don't know if this is how Metallica'll play it, but this is how BÍC does.

Intro to Astronomy : Song is in the Key of G
                                                       Softly strumming

    Em                       D                C      Bm             Em
The clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst out of you from their hiding
            Em                 D                  C      Bm       Em
place. Like acid and oil on a mad man's face, his reason tends to fly away.
     C                   G                C                 B           Em
Like lesser birds on the four winds; like silver scrapes in May.    And now
            D              C       Bm       Em
the sands become a crust.  Most of you have gone away.
Note: The way I play the Em chord ( the others are played similarly ) is
to play like an arpeggio ie.: Hold the Em chord O22OOO and play the B
note (5th str. 2nd fret) then the E (6th open) the B again with the
E optional (4th str. 2nd fret) and then strum the Em chord up (or down.)
using the first 3 strings in the open position while ringing the bass notes.
Second small leads (pull off 7to5 if you prefer)
           D       C                E         D       C           D

Chords not individual notes ( optional Em C D using open string strums )
alternate up and down strumming.
