This is what made Jaymz cry

As Simo wrote yesterday, Lou Reed apparently made both James and Kirk cry. Now, no surprise there when it comes to Kirk. But Jaymz? That’s something.

So here are the lyrics that made both Metallica guitarists soft (to say the least):

“Junior Dad”

Would you come to me
If I was half drowning
An arm above the last wave
Would you come to me
Would you pull me up

Would the effort really hurt you
Is it unfair to ask you
To help pull me up

The window broke the silence of the matches
The smoke effortlessly floating
I'm all choked up

Pull me up
Would you be my lord and savior
Pull me up by the hair
Now would you kiss me on my lips

Burning fever burning on my forehead
The brain that once was listening
Now shoots out its tiresome message

Won't you pull me up
Scalding my dead father has the motor
And he's driving towards
An island of lost souls

Sunny - a monkey then to monkey
I will teach you meanness fear and blindness
No social redeeming kindness

Oh-or-state of grace
Would you pull me up
Would you drop the mental bullet
Would you pull me by the arm up
Would you still kiss my lips
Hiccup: the dream is over
Get the coffee: turn the lights on
Say hello to junior dad
The greatest disappointment
Age withered him and changed him
Into junior dad
Psychic savagery

To be fair to them, they do have a pretty bad family background, so it does feel a bit mean picking on them for this. Then again, read the title of the page. This is DOSE OF METAL, if we’re not being mean, we’re simply not doing our jobs.

Can’t wait to hear the whole record, though. And by ‘can’t wait’ I mean ‘don’t want.’
