Unexpected Song Lyrics II

Every once in a while when you start up a song that you haven’t heard in a while or you listen to a new song that is just put out, there are times when you think to yourself, “wait, did they really say that?!”. This causes you go and search for the lyrics in the CD booklet or on the internet; then you will go back and listen to the section of the song over in hopes to figure out if they are really saying what you think they are saying.

Some of these cases are, in fact, just your mind playing with you. At the same time, though, you just might be on to something. After all, they are artists and there is always the possibility that they are trying to put something unexpected out there and are covering it up with different word usage and similar sounding phrases.

In this edition of Unexpected Song Lyrics: we have a couple of Metallica issues that I want to go over, Judas Priest and Shinedown’s fluffs in their latest CDs that were released, a symbolic cry for help from the biggest hair metal band ever Poison and finally, a song that has endless possibilities. What are you waiting for?

1. Enter Sandman (Live) by Metallica; from the live album “S&M.” Click here to listen.

First of all, I need to get something out of the way. Who the hell is “La Looseman”? I remember first getting this CD and wondering how the hell they were going to sound with a freaking orchestra but surprisingly after listening to the whole thing I still couldn’t get this question out of my mind. In fact, every time I listen to it today, I still think he is saying it.

When I finally got the S&M concert DVD, I went straight for that part to try and read Hetfield’s lips, and discovered that it didn’t help at all because the camera wasn’t even on him at the time… which pissed me the hell off! So then I realized that I could use something that I never use, the subtitles! So I turned them on and it came up as him saying “Let Loose, man!” Case solved.

Honestly, I can’t hear it as that as much as I try. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s probably the many years of listening to it and having my original though in my mind. You know how that goes.

However though, my theory in regards to whether it is what he really saying is quite simple. The video editors had the same problem that I have when listening to it, so they had to put something that is questionably what he is saying. If you think about it though on the whole, this situation is pretty much a stereotypical thing that Hetfield does.—

“Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… *inaudible*”

Only Ozzy does it better.

2. Whiplash by Metallica; from the album “Kill ‘Em All.” Click here to listen.

Do you ever see or hear something that makes you say “oh great, I bet ‘so and so’ will joke about this”? Well doing Whiplash, the last passage of lyrics are as follows:

“The show is through the metal is gone
It is time to hit the road
Another town Another gig
Again we will explode
Hotel rooms and motorways
Life out here is raw

*clip begins here*

But we will never stop
We will never quit
Cause we are Metallica
.”

I would have uploaded the whole passage, but I’m already risking getting sued by putting two clips up, lay off me!*

*This isn’t totally true, it would take someone to read this article first.

Yeah, yeah yeah… so hypocritical of them to put it into a song that they will always stay the same and keep kicking hard, considering how much they have ‘changed,’ right? I dunno, I’ll hold off on any jokes on the matter until I hear the new album this Fall; but until then I will still keep the faith that can pull something out. I’m pretty hopeful that this will happen but its going to be hard to top St. Anger.

3. War by Judas Priest; from the album “Nostradamus.” Click here to listen.

After basically two years in the studio, Judas Priest has a new album out, the double set concept album on the ‘prophecies’ of Nostradamus. In this song, in reference to the topic at hand, war, it seems like Halford is saying it “brings a lot of queefs.”

Maybe someone should do an anthropological survey in Iraq to see if there has been a rise in bodily gas in females. Well, that is if you classify it as a war still. Bush once called it “Mission Accomplished,” but ever since then he keeps reminding us there is war going. I don’t know what to believe anymore, really. All I know is, the guy (Halford) that really knows nothing about that area of the female body MUST know something is up with war and its pressures that are put on women in the region.

4. If You Only Knew by Shinedown; from the album “The Sound of Madness.” Click here to listen.

This song is Shinedown’s first ‘love ballad,’ and lets just say they don’t leave anything out. It’s quite obvious that he is telling his “ex” he would even give up beating off to be with her again, which really confuses the hell out of me. Why would he even need to if they were back together in the first place? Was he cheating on her… on himself? This is awful.

5. Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Poison; from the album “Open Up and Say… Ahh!” Click here to listen.

Every once in a while, there will be a passage in a song that is completely full of symbolic messages that only the original writer themselves will understand. In this lyric of “Like the Nuns that cunts use, the womb hears,” there isn’t a right or wrong interpretation that the listener can get out of it! This simple fact makes it a wonder that it isn’t used in English classes across the nation. It’s up there with all those poems that make you go “WTF?”.

You know these poems, the ones that are shoved down your throat in high school, right? Know what I’m saying?

Let’s bring in some contemporary writing to classrooms and see what our future can come up with when they try and explain the meanings of a drugged up rock star! And don’t give me that shit about it being a bad influence. 100% of all the writers we were forced to read were drunk or on drugs constantly, and yet we are made to believe their works are amazing because of what reason? Because the teachers say so? Bullshit. Carrying on…

6. Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam; from the album “Lost Dogs.” Click here for undeniable proof, from misheardlyricsguy.

The whole damn thing.
