Clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
His reasons tend to fly away

  • Yeesh, this song is embarrassing in the shadow of BÖC.
  • my best song is master of puppets
  • the best song
  • But anyway, great song <3
  • Well actually it does tell me something, BOC as Boards of Canada. And I know they can't cover them :D Don't short them, I know some of you don't have letter ö in keys, so use Blue Oyster Cult then, no mistakes.
  • It would be nice if people would tell what band did the original. BOC doesn't say anything to me so I had to go to wikipedia. Blue Öyster Cult, nice to know now.
  • Kinda love this song... it's pretty powerfull for a newer Metallica track
  • @Metality: Secret Treaties is a gapless album, so there's a reason it doesn't countdown into the intro. Having heard the original first, I prefer hearing the soft piano and clean vocals in BOC's version. Metallica, of course, does the heavier part much better than BOC who made it sound very wimpy from the first time I heard it.
  • Nowhere near BOC's first version. It's better than the second, though.
  • better than original
