The Metal!

Pounding double bass

Shredding guitar leads

melting off my face

forcing me to bleed

it makes my heart race

blood slamming through my viens

Im just not in the same place

listening to shit like Staind

strings snapping taut from such

as blasting syncopation

it doesnt take to much

to join the Metal Federation

you just need a thirst for excitement

a hunger for some evil

making up words like delightment

is so fucking medieval

the metal makes me feel alive

a wondrous mix of feelings

my brain buzzing like a beehive

away from sadness stealing

nihilistic views of life

believing there is none

in this world that causes strife

except for a dying sun.

Groove. Stoner. Progressive. Thrash.

Death. Power. Nintendocore. Black.

To those who say metal is trash

I believe theres something in your heart that you lack.
