The lyrics of "Enter Sandman" by Metallica From English Album Metallica with Lyrics Meaning & Knowledge. Latest Enter Sandman Song lyrics written by Metallica. The Music lyrics has been updated on 08 Oct 2022 .


Enter Sandman is a powerful and iconic track by the legendary heavy metal band Metallica, featured on their self-titled album released in 1991, often referred to as "The Black Album." This song is known for its intense energy, haunting lyrics, and memorable guitar riffs. With its dark imagery and brooding atmosphere, it delves into the realm of nightmares and fears that haunt the subconscious mind. The song's title, "Enter Sandman," alludes to the Sandman, a mythical character from folklore who brings sleep to children by sprinkling magical sand in their eyes.


{Verse No. 1}
Say your prayers, little one, don't forget, my son
To include everyone
I tuck you in, warm within, keep you free from sin
'Til the Sandman, he comes


The lyrics open with a sense of parental protection, where a caregiver advises a child to say their prayers before sleep, emphasizing the innocence of childhood. The act of tucking the child in and ensuring their safety from sin creates an image of security and trust. However, the mention of the Sandman introduces an element of suspense, foreshadowing a shift from innocence to darker themes.


{Verse No. 2}
Something's wrong, shut the light, heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars, dreams of dragons' fire
And of things that will bite, yeah


The mood takes a drastic turn in the second verse, painting a vivid picture of a disturbed mind. The directive to "shut the light" suggests a conscious effort to escape reality, possibly to avoid confronting the unsettling thoughts and nightmares. The reference to "dreams of war, dreams of liars, dreams of dragons' fire, and of things that will bite" captures a collage of terrifying images, representing the fears and anxieties that can infiltrate one's subconscious during sleep.
