Don't you be afraid, come and step inside, take a look around
I'm your holy grail in your candy store to save you from the profound
They used to dream in only black and white
Can't you hear them scream, drowning in the tide

Out in the cold, I see water frozen in their eyes
What a sorry sight
I am willing to believe
They would pay for a smile

I'm the master of toys
and all you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland

I'm the angel of joy
And I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
To my dream factory

Say hello to the gentleman with the paint
The deeper you're in the blue, the sweeter the sound of your plaint
If only I had a heart it would break, Oh sure
And I wonder how much more they can take

Out in the cold, I see water frozen in their eyes
What a sorry sight
I am willing to believe
They would pay for a smile

I'm the master of toys
and all you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland

I'm the angel of joy
And I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
To my dream factory

I come to bring you pain
And a little novacaine
Welcome to my world, to my toy factory

No more striding on the classes
No more striding on the masses
On their knees, conformity

They are waiting for the hero
They are flying at zero
It's their turn, to crash and burn

No more striding on the classes
No more striding on the masses
On their knees, conformity

They are waiting for the hero
They are flying at zero
It's their turn, to crash and burn

I'm the master of toys
and all you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland

I'm the angel of joy
And I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
To my dream factory

I come to bring you pain
And a little novacaine
Welcome to my world, to my toy factory

    General CommentBrutal Song! I love it!

    I think it is about government, social inequality, or at least in some parts of the song.

    General CommentI've got to be honest. It sounds like it's about a pedophile.

    General CommentOf course I have. I submitted the lyrics myself...I've heard this song at least ten times...it sounds like The Toy Master is some sort of metaphor for a pedophile of sorts...I mean, think about it.

    General CommentYeah.. but you'll have to ignore this whole part:
    They are waiting for the hero
    They are flying at zero
    It's their turn, to crash and burn

    No more striding on the classes
    No more striding on the masses
    On their knees, conformity

    I think its clearly about social inequality, you can also see that in here:

    Out in the cold, I see water frozen in their eyes
    What a sorry sight
    I am willing to believe
    They would pay for a smile

    The whole Toy/kids/factorie is a metaphor...

    General CommentThe start of the song reminds me of Kamelot's song "March Of Mephisto"

    General CommentIt sounds like it has communist overtones, and that it refers at the beginning to some form of "Opium for the masses." Just my 2 cents.

    General CommentMy impression is that Alice Cooper is playing a drug dealer, I think this would fit with the concept, as it seems to be about the character filling a personal void.

    General CommentActually the whole album is a "concept album" it talks about a musician who is trying to make his way through the "crowd", in this song the musician meets a "musical producer" (not exactly because this story is suppose to happen in the 19th century), so this song talks about the inequality in the musical environment

    General CommentI agree with Aniland, this song sounds a little bit scary and reminds me of Michael Jackson and I don't like him.
