Metallica The Shortest Straw

Suspicion is your name

Your honesty to blame

Put dignity to shame

Dishonor

Witchhunt, modern day

Determining decay

The blatant disarray

Disfigure

The public eye’s 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

The shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

The shortest straw has been pulled for you

The accusations fly

Discrimination, why?

Your inner self to die

Intruding

Doubt sunk itself in you

Its teeth and talons through

You’re 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

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Shortest straw has been pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

Shortest straw

Pulled for you

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

The shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you
