The Lyrics

DKTOS? MIDI here. Since the lyrics in TOS are copy/paste all lyrics sites are incomplete. I spent the time to get them correct here for comparison.
[one guitar riff, one drum beat intro for 1:00]

If we could have our wasted cash back
We would use it to get al-bum "Black"
Now be warned St. Anger begins
With song "Frantic" that's never endin'

Song is short in length,
But copyin' blows
And it goes on all night,
You'll feel that is the way it goes

Should they repeat chorus like that
Sure why not the fans have bought this crap

You don't want to buy this!
You don't want to buy this!
(You don't want to buy this!)
(You don't want to buy this!)

The snare drum, adjusted too tight Lars
The snare drum, adjusted too tight Lars

Weak lyrics..., weak ass lyrics...
This song goes on, this song goes on
Weak lyrics..., weak ass lyrics...
This song goes on, and on and on

Lyrics suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck


We're bored now fanbase going away
An album made from copy and haste
Treading water? more like drowning
The lyrics suck suck quite profoundly

Song is short in length,
But copyin' blows
And it goes on all night,
You'll feel that is the way it goes

We're bored now fanbase going away
An album made from copy and haste

You don't want to buy this!
You don't want to buy this!
(You don't want to buy this!)
(You don't want to buy this!)

The snare drum, adjusted too tight Lars
The snare drum, adjusted too tight Lars

Weak lyrics..., weak ass lyrics...
This song is long, needlessly long
Weak lyrics..., oh weak ass lyrics...
This song goes on, on and on

Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck

[short break, then back to more cookie-cutter songwriting]

Song is short in length,
But copyin' blows
And it goes on all night,
You'll feel that is the way it goes

Song is long in length,
Yes copyin' blows
And it goes on all night,
You'll feel that is the way it goes

Oh, The snare drum, (drums cause pain)
adjusted too tight Lars, (riffs are lame)*
This horrid song (lyrics lame)
No solos too is very wrong (sounds all the same)*
The snare drum, (drums cause pain)
adjusted too tight Lars, (riffs are lame)*
This horrid song (lyrics lame)
No solos too is very wrong (sounds all the same)*

Weak lyrics..., weak ass lyrics...
This song is long, so damned long
Weak lyrics..., weak ass lyrics...
This song goes on, on and on

Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Lyrics suck suck suck suck suck suck
Frantic sucks sucks sucks sucks sucks sucks!

DKTOSBHDTMFMHD (Do know the original song but have deleted the MP3 from my hard drive). I'll trust you on the pacing. And it's all true, unfortunately. :-(

AAAARRGH! Why did I download the midi?? It won't stop!! ;-) 5's

TPFLATPATMOTP (Thanks Peter For Looking At This Parody And Trusting Me On The Pacing). Normally I wouldn't "copy/haste" as you've put it before but hey, it worked for Metallica right? Oh, wait a minute.... ;-)

Thanks Tim; normally I wouldn't link such an awful MIDI but in this case it is on par with TOS. "Stop" did work for me though. ::o

Great parody, however, I disagree. Frantic is not excellent, but I think it sounds satisfactory. True, St. Anger is WAY different than their older stuff and even the Load/Reload stuff, but if you watch Some Kind of Monster, you will see, it's a whole new Metallica, and basically, a whole new beginning. I highly recommend you see it.
Red Ant - October 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Scrawny Johnny. We will have to agree to disagree for now as I have already submitted "St. Anger" and finished and am getting ready to submit "Some Kind of Monster" in the next day or so. Hope you don't get too mad at me, I still am the second biggest Metallica fan here. ;-)

I don't mind the sound so much as the copy/paste lyrics that aren't real deep, and lack of bass and guitar solos. Lyrics and/or vocals are the song to me, and so far I'm not impressed.

Mad?? Hardly, but ever since I saw SKofM, I respected St. Anger and gave it another listen to. And really, it's not that bad. It is heavier than the Load/Reload stuff. I can agree about the long, repeated lyrics as "St. Anger" stretches 10 lines of lyric into 7 minutes - like Foghat's Slow Ride.

I've had a St. Anger parody idea for a while now, but I won't reveal what the topic is about! Again, great parody!
Red Ant - October 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, you do have a valid point with the Load/Reload comparison. "St. Anger" and "Some Kind of Monster" are both submitted and "Dirty Window" is done, all I need is title. I trashed both of those songs, was quite a bit kinder with "Dirty Window".

You're analysis of "St.Anger" (the song) is correct, it took me about 10 minutes to parody the song as it doesn't have that many lines. The title is completely unoriginal. ;-)

Just stepped out of the 75 minute metal carrousel that is "St. Anger," I have to say that this "Frantic"-parody is really good. Everything that could be said about "Frantic" complaints-wise, has already been said in parody and comments, so I can't add anything to that. One question, though: I thought there were only four whispering lines in total in the my lifestyle/rising tide bit, like this: my lifestyle (birth is pain)/determines my deathstyle/a rising tide (life is pain)/ that pushes to the other side/ my lifestyle (death is pain)/determines my deathstyle/a rising tide (it's all the same)/that pushes to the other side. I'll go check it. I'm glad you didn't fall for the tick-trap. (The lyrics booklet said there were six 'ticks' while there were only five if you exclude the '-tic' from the word 'frantic.') That's the hello(x16)-syndrom.

Thanks Yet Another Dutchman. The whispering lines in parentheses with the asterisk next to them ()* I couldn't hear in the song but the sheets listed them, so I included them.

I liked the 'The snare drum's too tight Lars' part the best, 555.

It was good, definitely. Although, i think this aint that bad a song. Unlike some of the Reload stuffs, which seemed at times purely commercial, this album has soul to it. But hey, as i dont have the time to make parodies, i'll give you an idea: This song was actually meant to be a lament for releasing the Reload album. James had bought too much of vodka from the Black album money and had run into debt. So, to make that up, the "WTF" and the "ReWTF" albums were released. The main line of this parody will be: My lifestyle determines my debtstyle A shopping spree, that makes me want to drink my pee

Thanks Letaur (x2), and since you wrote a good 1/4 of the song already, should I decide to make another parody of this OS I'll credit you. Interesting history of this song too. Debtstyle is a great substitution.
