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 eyes' 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
Your 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
Witch hunt 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

(Bridge and 1st solo)

Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Pulled for you
Shortest straw,
Pulled for you
Shortest straw
Shortest straw has been pulled for you

(2nd solo)

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
Witch hunt
Riding through
Shortest straw
This shortest straw has been pulled for you

Pulled for you...
