From the album LULU due out October 31, 2011 (Worldwide) & November 1, 2011 (North America)

I AM A CHORUS OF THE VOICES
THAT GATHER UP THE MAGNETS
SET BEFORE ME

I ATTRACT YOU AND REPEL YOU
A SCIENCE OF THE HEART
AND BLOOD AND MEANING

THE COLDNESS OF MOST BEAUTIES
IS A CHALLENGE THAT OUR YOUTH
MUST QUICKLY CONQUER

THERE IS NO TIME FOR GUILT
OR SECOND GUESSING, SECOND GUESSING
BASED ON FEELING

I AM THE TRUTH, THE BEAUTY
THAT CAUSES YOU TO CROSS
YOUR SACRED BOUNDARIES

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

WORSHIP
WORSHIP

PAIN AND EVIL HAVE THEIR PLACE
SITTING HERE BESIDE ME
I OFFER THEM TO YOU AS SERVANTS
OF THE GOLD THAT YOU MUST GIVE

PAIN AND EVIL HAVE THEIR PLACE
SITTING HERE BESIDE ME
AND I’LL OFFER THEM, I OFFER THEM TO YOU
AS SERVANTS OF THE GOLD
THAT YOU MUST GIVE TO ME

I WANT TO SEE YOUR SUICIDE
I WANT TO SEE YOU GIVE IT UP, GIVE IT UP
YOUR YOUR LIFE OF REASON

I WANT TO SEE YOU ON THE FLOOR

AND IN A COFFIN, SOUL SHAKING
SOUL SHAKING
I WANT TO HAVE YOU DOUBTING
EVERY MEANING YOU’VE AMASSED
LIKE A FORTUNE, LIKE A FORTUNE
THROW IT AWAY

FOR WORSHIP OF SOMEONE WHO ACTIVELY DESPISES YOU

WHO ACTIVELY DESPISES YOU

    Shite, utter and complete Shite.

    Un-listenable, Depraved, Assault on Music Itself.

    I am hoping beyond hope that this is all some sort of absurdist comedy experiment that is too esoteric for it's own good.

    Atom Heart Mother::mMy mother died from badmedicines's complications not long ago, and though I have a brother and sister (retired) the full responsibility was on me to put a memorial together (no funeral) and was fairly intensive with family. Amazing stories of skeletons in the closest that blew my mind during private Memorial discussions
    blood for the monkeys! This musica remember me those days:: Sorry to shared!

    @XemDenots: This piece and its respective lyrics makes me feel much more curious to have the entire disk. Anyone familiar with the work of Lou Reed or Metallica knew from the announcement of this collaboration that this album would have unusual features for both artists. The track seems to highlight the points in common: the profound and even symbolic lyrics from Reed along with Hetfield's chorus and genius unleashed Hammet's guitar. It is slow and powerful music of Metallica accompanying a poet lyrics in the voice of Reed. The idea of ​​concept album is very exciting. Note: It is very funny to read complaints from some so-called fans of Metallica confusing Hetfield's voice with Lou Reed's voice.

    I literally can't get over this, the people going "This is COOL!!" will feel pretty freakin' dumb when they reveal this was A : A joke , or B : A fake.....or C: They get their hearing back.

    What's the matter? I think it's pretty interesting. Much more creative than all Metallica stuff since '91. Can't you accept something different than the usual Metallica, that doesn't bring us something really interesting or new since The Black Album? "RIP Metallica", "Pathetic", "Lou Reed has no rhytm in his voice". All that stuff sounds pretty ignorant.

    @fourbillion: "FEEL THE ANGST OF MULTI-MILLIONAIRES!!!" I love it... hit the nail on the head. Sad really, both acts have put out quality work in the past, but this musical war crime makes Rebecca Black sound grammy worthy.

    This sounds like walking into a Guitar Center on a Saturday Afternoon, and make no mistake... I mean that in a bad way.

    Lifelong Metallica fan here... I must admit, this is not what I was expecting, but I am intrigued to hear more. Metallica has never been much into "concept albums," and I am curious to see how this one will sound like as a whole. I'm sure there will be parts I love and parts I don't like so much. So I'll be buying the album for sure! But even if I wind up not liking the album, I still 100% support Metallica in everything they do!

    I wouldn't download this crap if it was free. This is NOT a good combination of musicians.

    Please guys,

    Before you condemn and criticize this album, find out about the work of Lou Reed. Once you have knowledge of his work, you will have, perhaps, a better opinion on the choice to make such album. James, Lars and the rest of the group, offer in this album a meeting of two great masters of rock. Lulu is not a Metallica album but a combination of both styles! Do not expect a new album of Metallica when it is a merger of two monsters of rock. Be patient and like anything new, let the artistic message through.

    Does it make me a bad hipster to say that 'Even James Hetfield could sing better than that?' It does doesn't it. Oh well, I'll be submitting my trucker hats, surly attitude and inexpensive domestic beer [and expensive imported cigarettes] to my local American Apparel by lunchtime. See you at the Country Club everyone music is dead! Cheers.
