Metallica – The View lyrics

I have no morals
Some think me cheap
And someone who despises
The normalcy of heartbreak
The purity of love

But I worship the young
And just formed angel

Who sits upon the pin of lust
Everything else
Bores me

I want to see your suicide
I want to see you give it up
Your life of reason
I want you on the floor
And in a coffin your soul shaking
I want to have you doubting
Every meaning you've amassed
Like a fortune

Oh throw it away

For worship someone
Who actively despises you

For worship someone
Who actively despises you

I am the root
I am the progress
I'm the aggressor
I am the tablet
These ten stories

    James Hetfield has gone too far. He recently came out as a table! What disgusting things to teach children. That's it's ok to be someone's furniture! Tables are against god's plan. He made Adam and Eve not Plank and Johnny. This is sick. Anyone who supports table celebrities will burn in the great woodchipper down below.
