Metallica – Leper Messiah lyrics

Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
Circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
Please, please
Spreading his disease, living by his story
Knees, knees
Falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
You will

Time for lust, time for lie
Time to kiss your life goodbye
Send me money, send me green
Heaven you will meet
Make a contribution
And you'll get a better seat
Bow to leper messiah

Marvel at his tricks, need your Sunday fix
Blind devotion came, rotting your brain
Chain, chain
Join the endless chain, taken by his glamour
Fame, fame
Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
We see

Time for lust, time for lie
Time to kiss your life goodbye
Send me money, send me green
Heaven you will meet
Make a contribution
And you'll get the better seat
Bow to leper messiah

Witchery, weakening
Sees the sheep are gathering
Set the trap, hypnotize
Now you follow

Time for lust, time for lie
Time to kiss your life goodbye
Send me money, send me green
Heaven you will meet
Make a contribution
And you'll get the better seat

Lie

    Catholic church taking advantage of people seeking faith. It's all about the money. It is a circus, dressed in the silly garb, spewing their condemnations. Worlds largest employer and enabler of crimes against children, against hope, against humanity. They have more than enough money, resources to feed, shelter and heal many of the planets most desperate. The book they claim to worship has been misused and defamed. Twisting words, causing wars and making up foolish rituals, all while telling the dazzled people that the only way to him is through them. Make a contribution
    you get a better seat.
    Very corrupt organization. Metallica is an absolutely brilliant band, their lyrics are always loaded, for those who look beyond the veil, you understand the message. Fav band ever, always has been.

    You guys are all wrong. A leper messiah is someone who represents themselve as a messiah, or a second "jesus". This song was originally made to represent who jon baker was, if anybody knows who that is. He made a cult in order to make people think he was the second coming of jehovah. Trust me guys, my dads a big name in the music business and he read the meaning of these lyrics like a poem. Very confusing lyrics though.
