Battery, but it's almost impossible to vote off any sing from that top 3...

This album actually has my entire top 3, but Battery isnít one of them.

So again this vote is only open for 24 hours when the survivor has been dead for over a week. It just doesn't seem a very good way to get as many involved as possible.

Anyway, Battery.

This continues to highlight how great this album is...Battery is a killer song.

Random comment:  Does anyone else find it tiresome that James continues to alter the lyrics to the title track to say "how I'm fucking you" instead of "how I'm killing you"?

Hey, at least he's reiterating the message of how bad drugs are. I understand being annoyed by it but there's worse situation in which using in a gratuitous way that word.

Because "how I'm killing you" doesn't quite get the message across???  It's not like they couldn't have used "fucking" when they wrote the song (see "fuck it all and fucking no regrets").  Maybe it's just James's facial expression when he does it -- like he's a 10 year old using the word for the first time and getting away with it.  He does the same thing in "One" ("cut this life out from me" becomes "cut this shit out from me").  Now that they're all in the 50s, you'd think he could just sing the song as written.

Also in One he's making plain clear how bad the situation is of someone who is alive only thanks to machines. Again, I totally understand and accept being annoyed by it, but there's a method to the madness so to speak, if he'd say, for example, "never gave a sh*t for what they do" in Nothing Else Matters that would be a lot more gratuitous.
