Transcript of Master of Puppets

Master of Puppets - Metallica
Tristan Brundridge
Literary Device Song Project Personification:

"Veins that pump with fear"

This line shows that the veins have the human quality of fear. It shows that the person the song is talking about, is really scared and "can feel their veins pumping with fear" instead of blood. Alliteration:

"End of passion play,
crumbling away."

This line is an example of alliteration becuase both words passion and play start with the letter "p". It shows that there is no more playing around, now that the "master of puppets" controls you. Metaphor:

"Master of puppets, I'm pulling your strings."

This line compares puppets to a drug addict. The master of puppets is the drug, and the puppet is the user. The line "I'm pulling your strings" proves this further by showing the user has lost all control. Symbolism:

"Master of puppets, I'm pulling your strings".

This line also uses the puppet master as a symbol for a drug. The drug controls everything you do, just like the puppet master does. Metaphor:

"Needlework the way.
Never you betray."

This line compares needlework ( sewing) to drugs that are injected by needles, such as heroin. It goes along with the theme of strings, becuase it makes you think of sewing, but it has a deeper meaning that once you stick that needle in you, you'll never "betray" that drug and will continue to use. Metaphor:

"Now your life is out of season"

This compares life to hunting season. Out of season means
that the season is over, and done. And now because of the
drug, the user's life is too. Repitition:

"Master, Master"

This line repeats itself to make you think of someone who is calling out for their "master". Assonance:

Taste me you will see, more is all you need.
Dedicated to, how i'm killing you.

These lines are examples of assonance becuase both lines have internal rhymes. The lines mean as soon as you try the drug, you'll become addicted and will want more, and as soon as you try it the drug won't stop at nothing to kill you. Mood:

"Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries"

The mood is evil, because the master of puppets is laughing at you for being addicted, and even though you want to quit, you can't. Metaphor:

"Chop your breakfast on a mirror"

This line compares breakfast to drugs. The user is so addicted he/she eats drugs for breakfast. Meaning:

The meaning of the song is the "Master of puppets" loves controlling his "puppet" in other words, drugs control you. Once you try them, you just want more and more until you evntually lose control. Once you realize you lost control the drug just laughs and you keep doing it. Theme:

The theme of the song is that drugs will take over and control you. The line "Master of puppets, I'm pulling your strings" shows this best, because it compares puppets to a drug user which is exactly how it works when you're addicted. The drug controls everything you do, and you eventually become a puppet just let the drug do whatever it wants to do to you. 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
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
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, master, master, master...

(Bridge)

(1st solo - James)

Master, master
Where's the dreams that I've been after?

Master, master
Promised only lies Laughter, laughter
All I hear or see is laughter

Laughter, laughter
Laughing at my cries

FIX ME!

(2nd solo - Kirk)

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

(Outro, random laughter to fade) THE END :)
