So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Okay, in the first sentence the author and poet states that he feels far away from what, we expect to find out in the next line, which is "Couldn't be much more from the heart". What the fuck is this? I have been trying to think of some ridiculously funny thing to say about this, but these two lines are so disconnected from one another, they might as well be Lars's drums and Kirk Hammett's guitar.
This is not however, the reason I hate this song, of course, if anything from Metallica deserves to be hated from how bad it is that would probably be St. Anger.
The reason I hate this song is because whenever I tell someone that I like Metallica, they immediately ask me if I know "Nothing else matters". The fact that there are retards who believe that "Nothing else matters" defines Metallica, and YES THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE PERSON, makes me want to go Battery on their ass. Logically I respond by telling them that this shitty excuse for a metal song isn't in fact one, but that's when things start getting really fucking horrendous. After a conversation taking this turn, the next thing you are most likely to hear is "But it's their most popular soooong, how can you not like it?" If you see my face change after you have said this, that's because I am debating on whether I should kill you for how much I hate your or if I should just off myself because of the sheer amount of dumb assholes who can't form a personal opinion I would still have to listen to.
In conclusion, if "Nothing Else matters" is your favorite Metallica song, you should jump off a bridge, and if it's your favorite metal song, then take your family too.
The second thing I hate about this song is it's intro. This is because whenever someone comes to my fucking house, sees my metal lifestyle and acoustic guitar, what they'd do is take my guitar and ask me to recognize the song, the song being the intro of this crap. This is not as bad as the first occasion, as you can really drive one's piss to a boil by pretending to not recognize the song over and over again.
