The Lyrics

Metallica just went downhill after the Black album (really good, though). Load and Reload are alright, but St. Anger was the point where they jumped the shark and I stopped caring. Even they hate it to the point of performing Frantic live as the only reminder of that POS album! Seriously, the instrumentation of this song had potential to be used by System of A Down or Korn, but I guess Metallica just wanted to be nu-metal for St. Anger. They just can't decide on a genre and just go with the flavour of the month.
These guys just cannot get back on track
Since the album just known as Black
Stop career, prevent more burning?
Or go ahead but never learning?

Do they have the brains to know that they suck?
Seems its only money that makes them want to give a f***
Could you be so kind as to stop?
Do you not know St Anger just flopped

Your career be dying, your career be dying!
(Your career be dying, your career be dying!)

You’ve burnt out, you might as well break up
You’ve burnt out, you might as well break up

Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks
Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks

Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!

They’ve worn out ever since the nineties
Like Nickelback, they’ve gone all whiney
First five albums made me happy
Metallic-lic-lic-a’s now crappy

Do they have the guts to call it a day?
They could sell more records, if they were dead like Jeff Buckley*
Worn out ever since the nineties
Like Silverchair, they’ve gone all whiney**

Your career be dying, your career be dying!
(Your career be dying, your career be dying!)

You’ve burnt out, you might as well break up
You’ve burnt out, you might as well break up

Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks
Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks

Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!

Do I have the strength to just call it quits?
Can they find it inside to realize that right now, they’re sh**?

You’ve burnt out (Album sucks) you might as well break up
Just stop right now (Music sucks) your diehard fans now think you’re crap
You’ve burnt out (Ulrich sucks***) you might as well break up
Just stop right now (Who gives a fuck) your diehard fans now think you’re crap

Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks
Keep playing, keep on playing
New music sucks, new music sucks

Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
Tallic-lic-lic-lic-lic-lic-sucks!
*Jeff Buckley's Grace seems to be selling more now that he's dead IMO. **Silverchair is kind of suffering the same disease - they used to rock, but now they just suck. *** I have no respect for Lars - to me, he's nothing but a whiny bitchy mercenary. Just my opinion.
