Metallica - The Shortest Straw lyrics


ad
Suspicion is your name
Your honesty to blame
Put dignity to shame, dishonor
Witchhunt modern day
Determining decay
The blatant disarray, disfigure
The public eyes disgrace
Defying common place
Unending paper chase, unending
Deafening, painstaking, reckoning
This vertigo it doth bring

Shortest straw
Challenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you, shortest straw [3x]
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

The accusations fly
Discrimination, why?
Your inner self to die, intruding
Doubt sunk itself in you
It's teeth and talons through
Your living catch 22, deluding
A mass hysteria
A megalomania
Reveal dementia, reveal
Secretly, silently
Certainly, in vertigo you will be

Shortest straw
Challenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you, shortest straw [3x]
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

Shortest straw
Shortest straw, pulled for you [3x]
Shortest straw
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

Behind you, hands are tied
Your being, ostracized
Your hell is multiplied, upending
The fallout has begun
Oppressive damage done
Your many turned to none, to nothing
You're reaching your nadir
Your will has disappeared
The lie is crystal clear, defending
Channels red, one word said
Blacklisted, with vertigo make you dead

Shortest straw
Challenge liberty
Downed by law
Live in infamy
Rub you raw
Witchhunt riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you
