Metallica - Sad but True

Hey, I'm your life
I'm the one who takes you there
Hey, I'm your life
I'm the one who cares
They, they betray
I'm your only true friend now
They, they'll betray
I'm forever there
I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel, sad but true
I'm your dream, mind astray
I'm your eyes while you're away
I'm your pain while you repay
You know it's sad but true, sad but true

You, you're my mask
You're my cover, my shelter
You, you're my mask
You're the one who's blamed
Do, do my work
Do my dirty work, scapegoat
Do, do my deeds, for you're the one who's shamed
I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel, sad but true
I'm your dream, mind astray
I'm your eyes while you're away
I'm your pain while you repay
You know it's sad but true, sad but true

I'm your dream
I'm your eyes
I'm your pain
I'm your dream (I'm your dream)
I'm your eyes (I'm your eyes)
I'm your pain (I'm your pain)
You know it's sad but true

Hate, I'm your hate
I'm your hate when you want love
Pay, pay the price
Pay for nothing's fair
Hey, I'm your life
I'm the one who took you here
Hey, I'm you life and I no longer care
I'm your dream, make you real
I'm your eyes when you must steal
I'm your pain when you can't feel, sad but true
I'm your truth, telling lies
I'm your reasoned alibis
I'm inside open your eyes
I'm you, sad but true

"Sad but True" is a heavy metal song recorded by Metallica for their fifth studio album, Metallica. The song was released as the album's fifth single in mid-1992. It is one of Metallica's first attempts at tuning down guitars, in this case, tuning down to D standard. They would use this tuning later on their cover of "Whiskey in the Jar" from Garage Inc., and would utilize drop C tuning (D standard with the bottom string tuned another full step) on St. Anger. In 2004, Guitar Player listed James Hetfield's tone, most likely produced by an ESP guitar driving a Mesa Boogie amplifier as one of the "50 Greatest Tones of All Time."[1] The lyrical theme of this song is dissociative identity disorder and schizophrenia, inspired by the 1978 Anthony Hopkins film Magic. James Hetfield sings from the point of view of an evil personality.[citation needed] "Sad but True" is one of six singles from Metallica. The song was included on Metallica's live collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Michael Kamen), entitled S&M, as well as their 1993 box set Live Shit: Binge & Purge.
