Lyrics for Master Of Puppets by Metallica:

Verse 1
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

Refrain
Taste me, you will see, more is all you need
Dedicated to how I'm killing you

Pre-Chorus
Come crawling faster
Obey your master
Your life burns faster
Obey your...

Chorus
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!

Verse 2
Needlework the way, never you betray
Life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Chop your breakfast on a mirror

Refrain
Taste me, you will see, more is all you need
Dedicated to how I'm killing you

Pre-Chorus
Come crawling faster (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (faster)
Obey your...

Chorus
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!

Post-Chorus
(Master, master, master, master...)

Instrumental Bridge

Bridge
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!

Guitar Solo

Verse 3
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

Refrain
I will occupy, I will help you die
I will run through you, now I rule you too

Pre-Chorus
Come crawling faster (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (faster)
Obey your...

Chorus
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!

Song Facts

The title track off Master of Puppets is mainly about the effects drugs can have on a person’s life. It is the single most performed song in Metallica’s career, and always provides a great reaction from audiences, as Hetfield will leave the singing of the MASTER! exclamations to the audience (to great effect!).

The guitar riff between the last guitar solo section and final verse was heavily influenced by David Bowie’s song “Andy Warhol,” which Burton and Hammett were big fans of.
