End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your deaths' construction

Taste me you will see
More is all you need
dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (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
dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (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 Ill hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause Ill Hear you scream
Master
Master

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
Neverending 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 (faster)
Obey your master (master)
Your life burns faster (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 Ill hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause Ill Hear you scream
Master
Master

    General Commentquit slaming on Trivium. If anything, they are honoring Metallica by playing one of their best songs, and doing a damn good job at it too. And quit compiaring two different bands. If people hate trivium so much, then why the hell do they keep coming back to their songs and post crap?

    And for anyone who really wants to know, this song is the same as Metallica made it. It's about drug addiction.

    General CommentOk first off, this isn't a trivium song, its a metallica song and one of my favorit metallica songs too. Second, yes they covered it but it shouldn't be on here under there name. Third, they did a good covered of the song.
