Puppet On a String
Dokken Lyrics


Why do you -- Invade me
I beg you -- don't leave me
Don't trust you -- don't trust me
I stand here -- benignly

What is inside that's pushing me
We're all a puppet on a string
This wooden world is just like me
We're all puppets on a string -- on a string

I hurt you -- you killed me
I love you -- you hated me
You gave in -- it thrilled me
You sex was -- fulfilling

What is inside that's pushing me
Like a puppet on a string
This wooden world is just like me
We're all puppets on a string -- on a string

I hurt you -- you tortured me
I love you -- you hated me
You gave in -- it thrilled me
Your sex was fulfilling
I hurt you -- you cut me
Your painful emission of how you felt
How you felt -- how you felt
My ego -- could not take

What is inside that's pushing me
Like a puppet on a string
This wooden world is just like me
We're all puppets on a string -- on a string

We're all puppets on a string
You buried me
You buried me on a string

I love this song unlike most people...its interesting seeing their 80s and 90s material contrast...their 80s stuff sounds extremely 80s and you can tell it was made in the 80s...same with this album...it sounds extremely 90s and you can tell it was made in the 90s

this is what george lynch said for this album: This is the perfect record. This is gonna be the end of Dokken, and that is what I wanted to accomplish worst dokken album !! old dokken rules, the new album is pretty good too :)

For some reason, this album and Dysfunctional remind me of King's X....but heavier.

It is a huge difference between 1987 to 1995

Max Del Fuvio

@Growl60 and I LOVE grunge...to each his own ;)

Rhoads Lynch

Fans hate this album but it does have some good moments. Bitter Regret, Convenient Store Messiah, Hard To Believe, and I Don't Mind. BTW love the Crue too!!!!
