Enter Sandman
Metallica Lyrics


Say your prayers, little one
Don't forget, my son
To include everyone
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman, he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land

Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
If I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
I pray the Lord my soul to take

Hush, little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land, yeah

Uh
Yeah, yeah

Yo, oh

We're off to never-never land
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land

1954: "Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream"

1991: "Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
dreams of war, dreams of lairs
dreams of dragon's fire
and the things that are bad.
Sleep with one eye open, gripping your pillow tight
exit light
enter night
take my hand
we're off to never never land."

@Insiktsfull
Please quit parroting the mindless televangelists of the 1980s who called metal and basically any music they didn't like, satanic.

Metallica being satanic? Seriously?
James Hetfield is Christian, and they've written many songs that tell stories straight out of the Bible (The Four Horsemen is about the Apocalypse, Creeping Death is about the Exodus, etc).

They, and other metal/hard rock bands, write songs about the hardships of life, about calling out the corruption in this world, and condemning evil by exposing it, but also through telling a story, just look at concept albums. Meanwhile, the mainstream pop and rap of today, glorifies sex, drugs, etc. Which is really the satanic music now? I'm a Christian, and the Bible teaches that Satan is extremely subtle. He hides in plain sight.

Black metal and such I can agree is satanic. But thrash and just rock in general? Nope.

I want to make it very clear to you that being dogmatic and badgering people for being "satanic" when really they aren't and generally acting "holier than thou" is not how you turn people over to our lord and savior Jesus Christ. You act humble, and you realize your own faults before pointing out that of others.

Quoting scripture completely out of context to try to push a personal agenda isn't a good thing either, after all the Bible says even Satan can quote scripture to suit his own needs.

Sandman (砂男サンドマン, Sandoman), which in reality is a mistralation of his Native American tribe name Soundman (サウンドマン (「音」をかなでる者), Saundoman ("Oto" o kanaderu Mono)), is a side character featured in Steel Ball Run. Although beginning as a fairly neutral party, he later becomes a minor antagonist after being recruited by Funny Valentine.
Sandman comes from a Native American tribe, yet had recently become ostracized for his embracing of the "white man's" culture. Despite this, he enters the Steel Ball Run race, hoping to use the prize money as a means of buying back his ancestor's land and protecting his tribe. Soon he establishes himself as one of the fiercest and unique competitors in the race, choosing to travel completely on foot. Eventually, he is brought out by the President who promised to provide him with the funds to reach his goal; if he hunted down Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli and retrieved their Saint's Corpse parts for him. He teams up with Diego Brando briefly to attack the main duo near the banks of the Mississippi River.

Sandman is a Stand User, wielding In a Silent Way.

Appearance

Sandman is a man of average to above-average height and athletic build. He wears his mostly light hair in two long braids crossing his face. He is sparsely clothed, with a few tattoos.

Personality

Sandman is a Native American with a singular and cynical outlook on the world but who is also loyal to his tribe.

Sandman is introduced as an open-minded member of his tribe, for instance shown in the possession of books expressively forbidden by the tribe due to originating from white settlers[3] and having developed his unique and admittedly extraordinary running style while ignoring his tribe's own techniques.[4] Sandman is critical of his fellow tribesmen, highlighting to his sister their outdated views and their misconceptions. For instance he claims that the idea of a claim to an ancestral land is out-of-date when the majority of the population now thinks on a financial level.[5] Nonetheless, he is ready to take the risk to participate in a continent-spanning horse race to give back his tribe's stolen lands to them, showing a great degree of loyalty for his tribe.[6]

Despite his open-mindedness, Sandman still treats the "white man" fundamentally as an enemy and sustains the idea that their society is governed by money. He ultimately sides with Funny Valentine, working to take the Corpse Parts to negotiate the necessary money to buy back his ancestors' lands. Disinterested in the corpse and the stakes at play, Sandman only considers it as a potential bargaining piece. When he confronts Johnny, Sandman also ultimately blames the white man's obsession for money as the reason of their current feud.[7]

Sandman shows a great deal of determination and confidence. During his first appearance, he notably jumps under a running horse to purposefully be kicked high in the air and escape pursuit.[8] Learning about the Steel Ball Run race, Sandman also decides without hesitation to leave his tribe and home to cross the United States on foot alone, expressing great confidence in his skill. However, his sister also points out that he is also solitary and stubborn to a fault since childhood, making it difficult for others to understand him.[9] Sandman also doesn't shy away from committing questionable actions and readily fight Johnny and Gyro with the intent of killing them.

Sandman also shows a slightly honorable side. During the first stage, he gives some of his time to tip Pocoloco and help him climb a cliff[10] and, after he wins the first place in the first stage due to a technicality, makes the effort to "repay" Gyro and warn him about an incoming storm.[11] Finally, although he was ready to kill Johnny and Gyro, he is the only enemy to have taken the time to ask them for their Corpse Parts, even though he threatened them.

Sandman is very close to his sister. She is the only person with whom he shares his personal opinions and his final thoughts are to her, hoping for her happiness.[12]


Abilities

Main article: In a Silent Way
Sandman's Stand, In a Silent Way, lends solid, offensive substance to sounds of his creation.

Running

Sandman is a pre-eminent athlete, possessing fantastic skill and technique in running and gymnastics; able to run distances other racers consider sensible only by horse as well as rivaling a horse's speed, and quickly negotiate a range of natural geographies.

Steven Steel explains that through sheer training, Sandman can make his heels only briefly touch the ground when he's running, meaning he can "recycle" the energy of his feet's impact on the ground into running, and at the same time preserving his legs from fatigue. When going down a slope or a cliff, Sandman can only hop on the relief several times in order to reduce the impact. This running style allows him to take shortcuts through natural obstacles horses can't cross.

History

Sandman (although he goes by the name "Soundman" amongst his people) is the first character introduced in the series. He is a member of a Native American tribe who learned to read the "white man's" books. When the tribe discovers the books in his teepee, they hunt him down to scalp him. It is then that Sandman is revealed to have developed a special running technique that allows him to run long distances without having to rest.

Sandman appears again on the Michigan lakeline, with a stand of his own. He works alongside Diego Brando and uses their combination to create dinosaurs that carry sound-effects. It is there that he fights with Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli. During the fight, Sandman seriously wounds Gyro, but becomes overconfident in thinking that he will kill Johnny, who uses his newfound Golden Rectangle technique to injure the overconfident Sandman, leading to his death.

Trivia

Sandman's ability for running may be inspired by the Tarahumara Native American tribe, known for continuous long distance running of ~200 miles (320 km).
During his battle with Johnny Joestar, he reveals that the name "Sandman" was mistakenly given to him by "[Johnny's] people"; continuing that "Soundman" is his actual name and that in his tongue, by his tribesmen, he is called "the one who creates sound".
