Load (album)

Wasting My Hate is the tenth song from 1996's album Load. It was written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett, with a length of 3:59.

Story

Wasting My Hate was inspired by Country outlaw Waylon Jennings, a good friend of James Hetfield. Waylon told James the story of when he was on vacation in Jamaica. Waylon was in a bar when one of the local Jamaicans just kept staring at him. This started to make Waylon very angry because this guy would not stop staring at him. Latter he found out that the Jamaican was high and had no idea he was staring, meaning Waylon was angry for no reason. He was wasting his hate on the Jamaican.

This song was played live 100 times. The first time was on September 6, 1996, in Vienna (Austria). The band played this song on their 30th anniversary, on December 7, 2011, in San Francisco, CA.

Lyrics

Good day. How do?
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't gonna waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it for myself

Ain't gonna give no more
Ain't got the time to help you score
I think it's time you pleased yourself
Yourself

Good day. How do?
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you
Hate

You think you're worthy now?
You think enough to even raise the brow
And to laugh and tip that two-pronged crown?

Well I see my hands, I see my feet
I feel that blood that pumps in beat
But where the hell's my mind going now?
Dead gone now

Good day. How do?
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think I'll keep it for myself

Hate

Ain't gonna waste my hate
But I'm so greedy when they say
Better to give than to receive

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't got time to waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it all for myself
For myself

Good day. How do?
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think I'll keep it for myself

Hate
