The Lyrics

Metallica are old and lame now, trying to relive glory days.... this is about the most humiliating way i could think of them exiting music..... bieng eaten by butterflies
Fluttering round in circles, its colours red and purple
Wings are ripped and torn away
Flying, soars and towers, once brave, now cowards
Butterfly is here to stay

Floating around the boundries
lunacy has found me
cannot stop the Butterfly
Pounding out aggression
Teaches us a lesson
cannot kill the Butterfly
Cannot kill Metallica
wish that they would die
[End Chorus]

Crushing caterpillars, stop them while their infants
laugh at metallicas impotency
To make any more good music, Rob trujillo
Wishing he would die


Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
Not a lot of energy
Whipping up a fury, as its wings flurry
We create the Butterfly

Finally an OS I know! Very good, 444. The pacing's off in the second verse and there are a few extra repeats of "Battery" you missed (minor gripe). While I'm hoping their next CD won't be the utter disaster "St. Anger" was, I have to agree with most of this. Pretty funny concept too, to be eaten by butterflies! The most embarassing way I can think they'd exit is to quit now with the failure of St Anger or *gasp* manage to make the next one worse.

Very good. I don't want them to die, I just want the old Metallica back. And to Joel, they didnt end that soon at all. They've been around for over 25 years, longer than any other band of their time. But they died when St. Anger tied his noose......Hopefully they can ressurect themselves from the ashes for another 10 years or so. At least, that's what I'd like to see from them.

Rob Trujillo is not a crap bassist. Have you seen him play? He's an effing animal!
