This song is by Metallica and appears on the album ReLoad (1997).

Yeah...
Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
One for each of us and our sin

So you lay us in a line
Push your pins, they make us humble
Only you can tell, in time,
If we fall or merely stumble

But tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away, so we may start again?

Tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free,
You jab another pin, jab another pin in me

Yeah...
Mirror, mirror upon thy wall
Break this spell or become the doll

See you sharpening the pins
So the holes will remind us,
We're just the toys in the hands of another
And in time the needles turn from shine to rust

But tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away, so we may start again?

Tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free,
Jab another pin, jab another pin in me...
Jab it... ("Here come the pins")

Blood for face, sweat for dirt
Three X's for the stone
To break this curse, a ritual's due
I believe I'm not alone

Shell of shotgun, pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins
Renew our faith which way we can
To fall in love with life again

To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love, to fall in love
To fall in love with life again

So tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away, so we may start again?

Yeah, tell me, can you heal what father's done,
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free,
Jab another pin, jab another pin in me
Yeah-eh-eh-h'eah

No more pins in me, yeah
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more, no more
No, no, no!
