Medley of MASTER OF PUPPETS and WELCOME HOME (SANITARIUM)

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

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

        Come crawling faster
        Obey your master
        Your life burns 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

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
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, 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

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 rule you too

        Come crawling faster
        Obey your master
        Your life burns 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
