Dirty Window

Album: St. Anger (2003)
  • I see my reflection in the window
    It looks different, so different than what you see
    Projecting judgment on the world
    This house is clean baby
    This house is clean

    Am I who I think I am?
    Am I who I think I am?
    Am I who I think I am?
    Look out my window and see it's gone wrong
    Court is in session and I slam my gavel down

    I'm judge and I'm jury and I'm executioner too

    Projector

    I see my reflection in the window
    This window clean inside, dirty on the out
    I'm looking different than me
    This house is clean baby
    This house is clean

    Am I who I think I am?
    Am I who I think I am?
    Am I who I think I am?
    I look my window and see it's gone wrong
    My court is in session and now I slam my gavel down

    I drink from the cup of denial
    I'm judging the world from my throne
    I drink from the cup of denial
    I'm judging the world from my throne Writer/s: JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, LARS ULRICH, KIRK L. HAMMETT, BOB ROCK

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI also think it could be about how ex-junkies look down on everyone else that's still doing drugs/alchohol, forgetting how it was like to once be in their shoes. (I drink for the cup of denial, I'm judging the wolrd from my throne)
  • Josh from Bowie, MdI know this whole album is kickass. I love every album they've made.
  • Joel from Columbia, ScI need to listen to this song again. I am/was addicted to painkillers that I was taking for chronic pain.
  • Jose from San Salvador, OtherThis song is amazing, everybody say bad things about this album but is great, the drums sound isnn't the best but when you see the dvd you just love it; frantic, st anger, somekind of monster, DIRTY WINDOW, invisible kid, shot me again and my favorite SWEET AMBER, just amazing the way lars and the whole band still plays this fast.
  • Mohammad from Bandarabbassi think its metaphorical idea is great.and metallica is still metallica.they proved it.still the best...
