The Top Ten
What idiot put this on list.This is not about drugs
Sorry but it is certainly about drugs. And don't call people "idiots" before making sure you're not one. - Metal_Treasure
This song doesn't glorify drugs unlike some other songs on this list. It describes very well the nature of drug addiction - drug addicts are the Puppets and drugs are the Masters.
"The Master Of Puppets is pulling your strings, twisting your mind and smashing your dreams."
"I’m your source of self-destruction"
"Chop your breakfast on a mirror"
"Taste me you will see more is all you need
You’re dedicated to how I’m killing you"
"Come crawling faster, obey your Master, Your life burns faster".
"The Crystal Ship" is heroin.
The shortest lyrics I know - this is all (repeated several times):
"Nicotine, valium, vicadin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol.
Chorus: Co-co-co-co-co Cocaine". - Metal_Treasure
Geezer Butler said that the song was about American soldiers in Vietnam who discovered heroin while overseas and became addicted to it. - Gg2000
This song is not about drugs.
"Driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones you better watch your speed." It's ironic in retrospect that a song like this came from the Dead. - Gg2000
