"St. Anger" as written by and Robert Jens/hetfield Rock....
Saint Anger 'round my neck
Saint Anger 'round my neck
He never gets respect
Saint Anger 'round my neck

You flush it out, you flush it out
Saint Anger 'round my neck
You flush it out, you flush it out
He never gets respect
You flush it out, you flush it out
Saint Anger 'round my neck
You flush it out, you flush it out
He never gets respect

Fuck it all and fuckin' regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
I need a voice to let myself
To let myself go free
Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
I it the lights on these dark sets
I tie a noose to hang myself
Saint Anger 'round my neck

I feel my world shake
Like an earthquake
It's hard to see clear
Is it me? Is it fear?

I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!

Saint Anger 'round my neck
Saint Anger 'round my neck
He never gets respect
Saint Anger 'round my neck

You flush it out, you flush it out
Saint Anger 'round my neck
You flush it out, you flush it out
He never gets respect
You flush it out, you flush it out
Saint Anger 'round my neck
You flush it out, you flush it out
He never gets respect

Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
I need a voice to let myself
To let myself go free
Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
Medallion noose, I hang myself
Saint Anger 'round my neck

I feel my world shake
Like an earthquake
It's hard to see clear
Is it me? Is it fear?

I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!

And I want my anger to be healthy
And I want my anger just for me
And I need my anger not to control
And I want my anger to be me

And I need to set my anger free
And I need to set my anger free
And I need to set my anger free
And I need to set my anger free

Set it free!

Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
I need a voice to let myself
To let myself go free
Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
I it the lights on these dark sets
I tie noose to hang myself
Saint Anger 'round my neck

I feel my world shake
Like an earthquake
It's hard to see clear
Is it me? Is it fear?

I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!
I'm madly in anger with you!

    General CommentYes, i agree. Metallica easily outdid my expectations on this one. Easily heavier than anything from the 90's. This song is great. It took time for it to grow on me, but now it is great every time i hear it. First, you have to make the obvious connection that St, Anger is a means of suicide, being a rope "round my neck". The rest of the song focuses on being stuck in the middle of feeling incredibly pissed off with someone/thing and just ending all the bullshit, all together, with this "medallion noose". "fuck it all and no regrets" revolves around my conclusion and shows that this person, regardless of how he got into this state of thought, is satisfied with his past decisions, and now must think about whats ahead. Why in the name of jesus would the band settle with the line "im madly in anger with you". maybe its just me, a diehard metallica fan, or does anyone else agreee with me that this line is just awkward and unusual? oh well. Excellent song either way
