Sworn In - Puppeteer Lyrics

It's not manipulation if I let you do it
So don't feel fucking bad because I'm begging you to do it
Cause when I get like this
I really can't dismiss
I'm lifeless all around and I want to reminisce

When I try to set it straight
I fold and feel the weight
I'm digging at my ears
But I can't understand what they say
They interrupt and scream
But now I get the theme
It's all a big god damn scheme

Be my, be my puppeteer
Pull my strings
Feed me lines
And whisper in my ear

I'm off the rails
I'm on the lam
I hate who I am
I'm off the rails
I'm on the lam
Tell me what to do, that's the plan

Pose me in any fashion
Change the way I walk
I'd rather be a puppet
Than an outline in chalk

Be my, be my puppeteer
Pull my strings
Feed me lines
And whisper in my ear

Be my, be my puppeteer
Pull my strings
Feed me lines
And whisper in my ear

I am a marionette
I am a lifeless threat

I am a marionette
I am a lifeless threat
I am a marionette
I am a lifeless threat
I am a marionette
I am a lifeless threat

  8. Bakon Kianiankirkakacappelli

    This song is the best song off the album by far!

    John Lewis

    Bakon Kianiankirkakacappelli Have you heard Cross My Heart or Cry Baby?

  9. Stephen Guzman

    For some odd reason, I'm getting some heavy My Chemical Romance vibes with that catchy ass chorus.


    Stephen Guzman It'd make sense, Tyler is kinda obsessed with Mcr lol

  10. Heatmaker Beatz

    From an AP Interview with Tyler Dennen:

    This track is about what I would do when all of the thematic driving points would occur at the same time. Essentially, an overwhelming amount of feelings and thoughts that were only half audible would all try to reach my brain at the same time and it would clog and overheat my brain. This would result in me being this lifeless marionette figure, and when I’m like this I would prefer having somebody else take control of my life, with or without their consent. Basically just the abandonment of oneself and wanting somebody else to manipulate you around so that to an extent, you still feel somewhat human.

  11. Kieran Mobbs

    start of the second verse = angry times, and i am a fan of THAT

  19. Spencer Whiteout

    The mix on this album is so poor :( I wish it was more clear like the last two albums

    Brian Muehlher

    I think that raw grittiness was very intentional. It suits the music well.

    Spencer Whiteout

    Perhaps it was intentional but I disagree that it sounds good.


    >clear like last two albums

    have you even listened to The Lovers / The Devil?

    Spencer Whiteout

    Yes. Have you?

    Brian Muehlher

    +Spencer White0ut it's all personal taste. Also keep in mind you're listening on YouTube, which compresses everything to shit. Listen to a lossless version before making a final verdict. You'll be surprised by the difference.

    my absolute favorite sworn in song to date!!

  25. Fuguex

    love the chorus

  26. Lana Hack

    Fucking love the breakdown in this

  27. Jake T

    Best work to date, and so far best song on the album.
    That chorus makes my dick harder than my ex ever could

    guy on a gravitron machine standing sideways

    not even close, The Death Card will always be their best album, this is generic numetalcore for scene cancer at its finest tbh

    Jake T

    Alex Tuozzo nah, deff not

    омега битард

    @Alex Tuozzo the death card boring metalcore shit based on 1 song

    guy on a gravitron machine standing sideways

    +аутентичный синтетик the death card was their most original album, obviously you haven't even listened to it in full if you believe it was based off of one song or you think there was only one good song off of it. Tyler's lyrics have always been edgy as fuck but have progressively gotten worse over time, and this album really displays how that pattern isn't gonna change until their inevitable breakup. his cleans are overproduced, can't sing shit live at all, which makes no sense because if you can't even perform them why would you make clean vocal parts. overall, the death card was a solid technical album that bordered on metalcore/down tempo deathcore, and it push started the trend for so many other bands (darke complex, villains, barrier, etc.). all smiles is literally just worse lyrics, overproduction, horribly done clean choruses, and cringey numetal influence meets chugcore for scene kids.
