Metallica The Shortest Straw Lyrics

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
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

The accusations fly
Discrimination, why?
Your inner self to die
Intruding

Doubt sunk itself in you
It's teeth and talons through
You're living Catch 2-2
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
You're being ostracized
Your hell is multiplied
Upending

The fallout has begun
Oppresive 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
