  • The more of you that I inspect
    The more of me I see reflect
    The more I try to read your lips
    The more the mask you're wearing rips
    But when I seek out your voice
    My ears are overcome with noise
    You show and tell with greatest ease
    Raving impossibilities
    Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
    Enraged my mind starts to smoke
    Enforce a mental overload
    Angry again, angry again, angry owe!
    And when the story takes a twist
    If folds like a contortionist
    Slight of hand and quick exchange
    The old tricks have been rearranged
    Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
    Enraged my mind starts to smoke
    Enforce a mental overload
    Angry again, angry again, angry
    The searing of the sinew
    My body fights for air
    The ripping of the tissue
    My lungs begin to tear
    Gravity's got my bones
    It pulls my flesh away
    The steam finally dissipates
    I make out my sweaty face
    Association that I choose
    Game I inevitably lose
    Governed by laws set up by me
    Fracture it's jaw to let me be
    A cut-out cardboard condo maze
    Filled with an insubordinate race
    Irrational youths stop to stare
    As music rubber hosed the air
    Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
    Enraged my mind starts to smoke
    Enforce a mental overload
    Angry again, angry again, angry again
    And again and again, again
    Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
    Enraged my mind starts to smoke
    Enforce a mental overload
    Angry again, angry again, angry owe! Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE

  • Dan Gillespy from Courtenay BcA very grump but super cool song.
  • Steve from Yuma I read an interview that Dave stated this song was about James Hetfield and being released from Metallica
  • Bob from Yourmom, AfghanistanThis was made for the movie ,"last action hero," (great movie by the way)
  • Andrew from Mackinaw, Ili always though this song was about viewing life through the eyes of a cop or detective and how sickening corruption can be to them and the anxities that come with being on duty
  • The Metallican from Gunturyeah... the riff is great
    but it seemsto me like controlling the anger,
    hence the title is "angry again"
  • Tom from Chicago, Ilawesome tune
  • Omar from Sylmar, Cawhen I get mad I am always listening to this song.all you have to do is just listen to the messages to this song.
