Summer Sanitarium Tour 2000


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
you're 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 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 (faster)
obey your Master (master)
your life burns faster (faster)
obey your Master (Master)
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 master…..

Welcome to where time stands still
no one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there
and cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
he's getting better, can't you tell?

No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
but they think this saves us from our hell

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me the fuck alone

Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
seems the only way
for reaching out again
reach motherfucker reach

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'll rule you, too

Come crawling faster (faster)
obey your Master (master)
your life burns faster (faster)
obey your Master
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

    General CommentThis is also the version they played on that one stop of the "Tattoo the Earth" tour they played at that same year (which I was at). Yeah, it was awesome but I don't see the point of putting up on songmeanings.net.

    General CommentConform_to_the_NORM -Which of us are you talking to? Eh, who cares. You made an account just so you could bash a band, and you call us the freaks?. Go corpse-hump yourself.

    Anyway, yeah, not much meaning to it. See the pages for Sanitarium and Master Of Puppets.
