My Friend Of Misery Lyrics - Metallica



Review The Song (16)


You just stood there screaming
Fearing no one was listening to you
They say the empty can rattles the most
The sound of your own voice must soothe you
Hearing only what you want to hear
And knowing only what you've heard
You, you're smothered in tragedy
And you're out to save the world

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

You still stood there screaming
No one caring about these words you tell
My friend, before your voice is gone
One man's fun is another's hell
These times are sent to try men's souls
But something's wrong with all you see
You, you'll take it on all yourself
Remember, misery loves company

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There's much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

You just stood there screaming
My friend of misery

Metallica review | Reviewer: raiderphan68 | 2/14/14

I hear so many say that the black album was there finest......hush kids, it was there sellout album. If your a true hardcore metalhead, nothing after master of puppets is legit. the black album brought them into the limelight and made them millionares and that is fine, probably what i would do as well. However, before master of puppets was paid for with honest homegrown anger, sweat and touring......that is true METALLICA!

Bass | Reviewer: Bassman | 6/21/13

Sry Metaller, but u know NOTHING about bass play. I´m bass player, and I need to tell u, trujillo is good and no more, Newsteed gave the best chorus to the band and he is better than trujillo, and finally I don´t care what Lars said, Cliff is the best. trujillo miss a lot of notes on his solos, Cliff didn´t. If you don´t believe me, just search on utube "For whom the bells tolls" live, played by trujillo, newsteed and Cliff u can see the difference by yourself. Newsteed sounds great, Cliff simply rules, and trujillo sucks. Sry man, but u know nothing about bass.

metallica | Reviewer: Metaller | 6/10/12

I don't know why people are always bashing on st anger. if you know story about metallica, you know why album like that was produced. and there is so much feeling in st anger than in any other album of theirs.
+ robert trujillo is one of the best bassist on the world. is better than cliff and newstead. Lars himself said on audition, that if that day cliff would showed up he would probably won't be choosen

YEAH! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/8/10

Awesome song from Metallica! i noticed that in the second verse of this song when it says "But something's wrong with all you see" it sounds like Bob Rock (Who Produced the black album) singing that part!! don't know if any one else noticed that? but any way, very powerful song with alot of feeling but still remaining kick ass as usual! =)

/METALLICA\ | Reviewer: J | 5/27/09

When I think of /METALLICA\ in their prime, I just can't help but to think of the Black Album. Just the way everything sounded, Hetfields reigning voice along with the pure thrash sound of his guitar, the machine gun drums of Ulrich, that raw power of Newstead's bass, all wrapped around Hammett's unbelievable guitar solos. It just screams juggernaut! Don't get me wrong, I love "Kill Em All," "Ride the Lightning," "Master of Puppets," and "And Justice For All." That speed and thrash metal of early /METALLICA\ will never be matched by any band. Other Albums like "Load," "Reload," and "St. Anger," bring the hard rock and balleds to the table. Going back to what I said about /METALLICA\ being in their prime with the Black Album, it just seems like the band was able to bring it all together, they put an album out that didn't totally melt your face completely off with rediculous metal, and they didn't bore you with slower riffs like from the later albums. The Black Album had a bit of everything in it, speed metal, thrash metal, and some hard rock, along with a balled from "Nothing Else Matters." The Black album is by far one of the best albums I've ever heard from any metal band, period. Its good to hear that /METALLICA\ is getting back to their old school ways after putting out the album "Death Magnetic," the stuff they have on there makes me truly believe that this band can go on shredding it up for years to come.

Anyways, "My Friend of Misery," great song, really enjoyed it because of how hetfield sings it. He puts a lot of heart and soul into the vocals of this song, and just about all of his songs. Again, great song.

For those out there who say /METALLICA\ sold out, you're right, they did sell out, they've sold out arenas all over the world for over 20 years, and they are gonna sell out for another 20 years.

"/METALLICA\ DIDN'T GO MAINSTREAM, MAINSTREAM WENT /METALLICA\!!!"

1!!!

just awsome | Reviewer: kathy | 1/14/08

This song is absolutely out of league, the best of the best. No words about the guitars and the drumms, right?, there's no comparison worldwide.

:O | Reviewer: eet-fuk | 11/30/07

Metallica is just... i love them.
This is one of the first songs i heard.
u can't not, not like Metallica!!

Metallica is the only one .. | Reviewer: !Yup* | 11/20/07

metallica is the only one that can do music ...the others in front of metallica are 0 ...I love METALLICA.... only some stupids don't like metallica

You just stood there screaming... | Reviewer: Roxy Shox | 9/19/07

... As you should on Metallica concert - screaming, listening, crying. This song is a great proove Metallica could play anything, even "Oh, Suzanna", and still would sound like no other - perfect.
