Leper Messiah

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich
Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
Circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
Please, please
Spreading his disease, living by his story
Knees, knees
Falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
You will

        Time for lust, time for lie
        Time to kiss your life goodbye
        Send me money, send me green
        Heaven you will meet
        Make a contribution
        And you'll get the better seat
        Bow to Leper Messiah

Marvel at his tricks, Need your Sunday fix
Blind devotion came, Rotting your brain
Chain, chain
Join the endless chain, taken by his glamour
Fame, fame
Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
We see

        Time for lust, time for lie
        Time to kiss your life goodbye
        Send me money, send me green
        Heaven you will meet
        Make a contribution
        And you'll get the better seat
        Bow to Leper Messiah

Witchery, weakening
Sees the sheep are gathering
Set the trap, hypnotize
Now you follow

        Time for lust, time for lie
        Time to kiss your life goodbye
        Send me money, send me green
        Heaven you will meet
        Make a contribution
        And you'll get the better seat
        
        Lie
