Master of Puppets

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Burton/Hammett
End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your death's construction
Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

        Come crawling faster
        Obey your master
        Your life burns faster
        Obey your master
        Master
        
        Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings
        Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
        Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master

Needlework the way, never you betray
Life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Chop your breakfast on a mirror
Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

        Come crawling faster
        Obey your master
        Your life burns faster
        Obey your master
        Master
        
        Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings
        Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
        Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master

Master, master
Where's the dreams that I've been after?
Master, master
You promised only lies
Laughter, laughter
All I hear or see is laughter
Laughter, laughter
Laughing at my cries

Fix me

Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
Just a rhyme without a reason
Never-ending maze, drift on numbered days
Now your life is out of season
I will occupy
I will help you die
I will run through you
Now I rule you too

        Come crawling faster
        Obey your master
        Your life burns faster
        Obey your master
        Master
        
        Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings
        Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
        Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master
        Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
        Master
        Master
