Hetfield tells Radioacktiva: "A friend of mine, sometimes he and I would get in trouble a lot, and it's just that we're hardwired that way. I need my friends to tell me some better decisions sometimes - and sometimes I don't. I'm wondering if man in general is wired one way or another.
"A lot of these songs deal with man on the planet. Who do we think we are? In the history of the universe we've been around a millisecond, and we think we can control the world and global warming and everything.
"Do we really have that kind of control - or is it that our time is finished? I don't know." Read morehere.

Shot in a single take, the clever video finds Rhett moving through each scene with viewers aware of what's going to happen thanks to frozen actions laid out just moments ahead of him. In the beginning, he gets up from the couch with a football in hand and walks up to a football frozen in mid-air. Before he reaches it, Rhett throws his football, which passes through the football in mid-air, and he continues on.
The video was directed by TK McKamy. Rhett praised the approach in a statement. "This music video was unlike anything we've shot before, which is why I always love teaming up with TK," Rhett said in a press release. "He captured that feeling I get when [my wife] Lauren walks into a room, no matter where we are, and the spotlight completely turns to her. The song was sped up double-time to get to point A to point B, and there were a lot of moving parts we had to execute perfectly for the video to make sense. We literally got it in the last take of the shoot." Watch the videohere.

One afternoon I was walking down a street in my neighborhood that I had walked down countless times before when out of nowhere I suddenly became very aware of everything being very different.
I remembered certain stores, restaurants, and bars--long since gone--that I hadn't thought about in years. I also thought about the people I used to spend time with in those places; many of them had disappeared from my life, too. And many of the ones who remained had changed in profound ways.
It was like waking up from a dream. Or being awake and dreaming at the same time. The feeling eventually passed but a kind of lingering sadness remained.
So that was the mindset I was in when I wrote the song. When I got home, I sat down at this digital piano I used to have and the music just kind of showed up.
As far as the lyrics go, I don't really know what the song is about in that sense. I wasn't trying to directly express how I was feeling at the time. The words just seemed right.
Devery calls "Sailor" "the prom song," which is maybe the best way to express what I've been trying to say.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the EPright here!
