Every year, unknowingly, we pass the anniversary of our future death.
this post fucked me up
"I remember in Sweden after Cliff died, as soon as we got out of the hospital. We all had minor injuries and we all came out and I just went straight for a bottle and just started screaming, "Where’s Cliff?" Just out of my head. Cliff was a good friend. He understood some of where I was coming from. And when he was taken from us, it was like an ally of mine in the band was gone. Where did Cliff go, why did he go? A lot of that stuff started appearing in lyrics." - James Hetfield
