Metallica – The End Of The Line lyrics

Need more and more
Tainted misery
Bleed, battle scars
Chemical affinity
Reign, legacy
Innocence corrode
Stain, rot away
Catatonic overload

Choke, asphyxia
Snuff reality
Scorch, kill the light
Incinerate celebrity
Reaper, butchery
Karma amputee
Bloodline redefined
Death, contagious deity

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more
New consequence machine
Burned through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime, never mind
You've reached the end of the line

Time, choke the clock
Steal another day
Die faithfully
Narcissistic fade away
Twisted, jump the rail
Shatter the crowd below
Breakout, chase the ghost
The latest high to all-time low

Hooked into this deceiver
Need more and more
Into the endless fever
Need more and more
New consequence machine
Burned through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime, never mind
You've reached the end of the line

Drop the hourglass of time
Spilling sand we will not find
As we gather here today
We bid farewell
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master
The slave becomes the master, yeah

The slave becomes the master
Need more and more
Right now or never after
Need more and more

New consequence machine
Burned through all your gasoline
Asylum overtime, never mind
Dead hourglass of time
Sand we will not ever find
We gather here today to say goodbye
'Cause you've reached the end of the line
The end of the line
The end of the line
The end of the line
You've reached the end of the line

    The song is a mirror image of Master of Puppets. It's about drugs and how addicting they are and basically the drugs take control of our life hence "the slave becomes the master". We become so addicted(Need more and more) to these drugs(also known as "Deceivers" in the song) and how day by day we lose track of time while on them(Time choke the clock steal another Day). I think the entire song is about a drug addicts death by overdose. The drugs were helping him cope with something but it turned out to take over his life so in the end he died or "reached the end of the Line".
