The Lyrics

DKTOS? MIDI here (it is awful), Lyrics here, reply #3. I took a bit of a different approach with this song; I wasn't as harsh and tried to tell a bit of a story; the chorus doesn't make one iota of sense though, in keeping with the spirit of TOS. I keep harping on the lyrics because they are what IMO lack the most about this CD thus far. Oh, copy/paste makes a return here.
[40 second intro]

I hear the dejection and your anger
Know your different, too different than used to be
You came from treatment new to world
Your house is clean Hetfield
Hate to be mean

"Am I who I think I am"?
Well who do you think you are?
Man I think you're a front man!
Throw out your lyrics you'll see you went wrong
Try some practice sessions man 'cause,
I think you need them now

We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude
We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude

Inflection
Ejection
Election
C-section
Reflection
Rejection,
Infection,
Dejection,
Perfection,
Keep guessin

I hear the dejection and your anger
Yes Hetfield's clean inside, get your anger out
You're singing idiotic'ly
Hate to be mean Hetfield
Hate to be mean

"Am I who I think I am"?
Well who do you think you are?
Man I think you're a front man!
Throw out your lyrics you'll see you went wrong
Try some practice sessions man 'cause,
I think you need them now

We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude, mmm
We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude

Inflection
Ejection
Election
C-section
Reflection
Rejection,
Infection,
Dejection,
Perfection,
Keep guessin'
Learn lesson


Time, time, time, time
hahahaha

We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude, mmm
We judge them unworthy and the execution is crude

Inflection
Ejection
Election
C-section
Reflection
Rejection,
Infection,
Dejection,
Perfection,
Keep guessin

(Time, time, time, time)
I, think you can rise from the ashes
(Time, time, time, time)
You've proven the world you can own
(Time, time, time, time)
I, think you can rise from the ashes
(Time, time, time, time)
You've proven the world you can own
(Time, time, time, time)

I couldn't follow the midi, but trust you on your pacing. 5's

I like the original song.

As it begun, I felt really energized by 'Dirty Window.' I liked the shifts in pace and the lyrics got me thinking as well. But you have the habit of turning powerful music (even if you didn't like the song -or did you? I can't tell!) to your advantage in your satire. You may say your chorus didn't make sense (the chorus is the protector-rejector thing, right?), but it had great value, each word applied to the whole 'St. Anger-complaint' theme that runs through 'St. Anguish.' I applaud you. Injector? I hardly KNOW her.

Well, the first 2:00 of the song is good and that is really all there is, Metallica again repeated themselves 3 times. Now that you mention it the chorus does make sense (the "inflection.....Keep guessin" part). I felt a bit bad slamming this one, the original lyrics sounded promising but the execution was flawed. As one reviewer said on amazon.com (referring to James), 'yes, yes, you went to rehab, no need to inflict it on the rest of us'.

Nice pun there too. ;-)
