Favorite Song Quotes from Metallica

Metallica is my fave band and a lot of their lyrics really resonate with me (which makes sense ’cause they are my fave band, right?). While I am sure that there are lyrics that some others would prefer to the ones I’ve posted, that doesn’t matter because this is MY damn blog. Now, that isn’t to say that this is comprehensive, but more like a skim over of what I consider the best.

Here we go:

“Yeah, look it’s me
The one who can’t be free
Much too young to focus, but too old to see
Hey, look it’s me!
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you want to see
Hey ma, hey ma, look it’s me!”
— “Prince Charming”

“Pure black, looking clear
My work is done soon here…”
— Harvester of Sorrow

“End of passion play
Crumbling away
I’m your source of self-destruction…”
— Master of Puppets

“So tear me open but beware
There’s things inside without a care”
— Until It Sleeps

“Living on your knees conformity?
Or dying on your feet for honesty?”

“Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light!”
— The Thing That Should Not Be

“I’m your dream, make you real
I’m your eyes when you must steal
I’m your pain when you can’t feel
Sad but true
I’m your truth, telling lies
I’m your reasoned alibis
I’m inside open your eyes
I’m you”
— Sad But True

“I’m sowing the seeds
I’m sowing the seeds I’ve taken
I’m sowing the seeds I’ve taken for granted

This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I’ve planted

Ohh it tears me and I bleed…”
— Bleeding Me

“Please excuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real
Now deservingly, this easy chair
But the rockings stopped by wheels of despair
Don’t want your aid but the fist I’ve made
For years can’t hold or feel
No, I’m NOT all me!
So please excuse me while I tend to how I feel”
— Hero of the Day

“I got some HELL to pay ya
I steal ya thunda
The joy of violent movement pulls you under
Oooo bite the bullet well hard
Yeah, but I die HARDER
So go too far”
— 2X4

“Story starts
Quiet town
Small town boy
Big time frown
Never talks
Never plays
Different path
Lost his way

The streets are red
Red I’m afraid
There’s no confetti
No parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my god how it all did change!
Now they all pray
‘Blood stain wash away’
He said
‘I lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way…'”
— Ronnie

“I wish I may I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight
I want that style, I want it now!
I want it ALL, and I don’t care how…”
— King Nothing

“Heavy rings hold cigarettes
Up to lips that time forgets
See the Hollywood sunset behind your back
And can’t the band play on?
Just listen they play my song
Ash to ash, dust to dust
Fade to black…”
— The Memory Remains

“Good day, how do you do?
And I send a smile to you
Don’t waste, waste your breath
And I won’t waste my hate on you”
— Wasting My Hate

“Hear me!
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Hold me!
And if I start to come undone
Stitch me together
See me!
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn”
— Outlaw Torn

“Blood for face
Sweat for dirt
Three x’s for the stone
To break this curse
A ritual due
I believe I’m not alone
Shell of shotgun
Pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins
Renew our faith which way we can
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love
To fall in love
To fall in love with life again

So tell me
Can you heal what father’s done?
Or fix this hole in mother’s son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Yeah, tell me, can you heal what father’s done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I’m pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
No more pins in me…..”

“And how can I blame you
When it’s ME I can’t forgive?”
— Unforgiven III

I’ve already died
You’re just the funeral
I’ve been waiting for”
— Cyanide
