I love this song by Metallica, it is about the God that failed... It is not about religion or anything... Many people judge this song and thye don`t even know what it is about!
Jame`s parents were scientist religions, and they had the belief that God would heal everything, which means they enevr went to the doctor, NEVER EVER, the medicine at Jame`s home was to pray or to read the bible, he took his first pill when he was 16 years old because of an headache --` it was rough times for him as he says, being in pain and not being able to go to the doctor... he also couldn`t attend to class about the body because since God would take care of us we didn`t have to know anything about our body...
When is mom got cancer, she refused the treatment becuae she said that God would save her and he/she didn`t, after that James wrote this song about the god that failed, that should have saved his mom and didn`t...
Now James ahs a very diferent prespective... God created people to save her and thta`s how he/se shows the love for us :)!
Love this song, it is so meaningful!
