Dyers Eve Lyrics

Dear Mother

Dear Father

What Is this Hell You Have Put Me Through

Believer

Deceiver

Day in Day out Live My Life Through You

Pushed onto Me What's Wrong or Right

Hidden from this Thing That They Call Light



Dear...

    I think this song is about a guy whose parents won't let him live his own life. And tries to control every aspect of his life.

    this song is about a child that was sheltered from reality, and raised with no real knowledge of the world, and lived with his parents all his life. Once his parents die he is thrust into reality and is overwhelmed by the real world to the point where he commits suicide. The song is a letter to his parents he writes just before he does it.

    I agree to the others with James parents interpretion.
    I think the band use very fast Songs if they want to
    Show their rage. This is one of the fastest ones because
    James statement with the speed means, more speed more
    rage.

    It's about James' parents being to controlling and instilling their belief of Scientology into him, and not letting him think for himself or engage in activities he liked

    The song is centered on James Hetfield's childhood. In interviews, he talks about how his parents were very, very religious and wouldn't let him have a mind of his own and controlled a lot of his actions. They disapproved of things he took part in that were deemed as "sins". I believe this song is a reflection of his childhood and on his parents who were subsequently never there for the most part of his life after his Father left at an early age and his mother died from cancer after she refused treatment - again due to her strong and strict religious views.

    It is about James Hetfield's childhood in which his parents did not let him have any freewill and shelterd him, but at the end, he realizes that his parents were sheltering him from the hellish real world

    i think it may have something to do with the death of hetfields father. he had cancer and died when james was 16 or something, and the father didnt get any medical treatment because both parents only believed in 'fate'. and as a result his father died he had to go live with older brother. any way thats just wat i thnk the song somewat revolves around.

    I believe that this song talks about the things he does for the parents and in the end gets nothing. He also believes the things he does, he feels he is being watched

    Some over-pampered government boy gets sick of is super-controlled sheltered life and runs off to start over.
    Or,
    It could be Symbolizing how the government shelters the citizens from whats going on with the outside world, like the world wars or youth in aisa.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song shows that he hates his parents and think they never did any good, but after he moves out and is on his own he realizes how much he actually need them, and that they through being tough tried to get him ready for real life
