The Wait
Metallica Lyrics


Motives changing
Day to day
The fire increases
Masks decay
I look at the river
White foam floats down
The body's poisoned
Got to sit tight

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

After awakening
The silence grows
The screams subside
Distortion shows
Mutant thoughts
Of bad mouthed news
It's just another birth
Of distorted views

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

Motives changing, day to day
The fire increases, masks decay
I look at the river
White foam floats down
The body's poisoned, gotta sit tight
The wait... the wait...
The wait... the wait...
After wakening, silence grows
The screams subside
Distortion shows
Mutant thoughts of bad mouthed news
Is just another birth
Of distorted views
The wait... the wait...
The wait... the wait...
The wait... the wait...
The wait... the wait... ( Song by killing joke)

After wakening, silence grows
The screams subside, distortion shows
Mutant thoughts, of bad mouthed news
It's just another birth, of distorted views

Something must be wrong with this EP -- I can hear the bass...

Peter Amaral

This was my favorite era of James’s vocals. Breadfan, AJFA, Garage Days, it was his peak

Top Dawg

Agreed odd they did covers many better than the original and that's not easy it's impossible

@Samuel Nilsson Autotune.. live and studio no thanks.

Samuel Nilsson

I think his peak was S&M. But oh well.

ModerusPrime

@gopnikkgb His vocal peak was Garage Inc.

nosweat

@Petar Ticinovic yeah lmao, but to say he was at his peak is just nah

Makes me think of my dad who passed 2018. I was his little rocker kid. He said the first song I knew was One by Metallica and by the time I was old enough to pick my own music this was my fav go-to song. Air drums and head banging for life. 🤘

@Goldenwolf Like you there are many. Your generation and others ahead or to come, there will be many people listening to good music. Don't lose hope. Hope is the last one to die. Big hug.
