|What song is this lyric from: "Blood feeds the war machine"?|
No Remorse. This track is from "Kill em' All". This song was Metallica's first anti-war song. It is about people who go off to war just for the sake of killing, guiltless and numb to the pain of their victims.
|What song is this lyric from: "Here I go, playing the star again"?|
Turn the Page. Off of "Garage, Inc.". Originally sung by Bob Seger. This is about the other side of a band's life on tour. The deafening silence after the audience leaves, the loneliness of hotel rooms and the stares in restaurants.
