Mustaine] Your bodies empty now As I hold you Now your gone I miss you But I told you I remember bad times More than good There's no coming back Even if we could I loved you to death If I can't have you Than no one will And since I won't I'll have to kill My only love, something I've never felt Now you've gone to heaven And I'll burn in hell I loved you to death [solo: Mustaine] And now I'm down below And what do I see You didn't go to heaven Your down in hell with me And now your coming back Baby take me please! I really think I would If you weren't such a sleaze I loved you once before You kept me on a string I'd rather go without Than take what you would bring ! I loved you to death 3. Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good! [D. Mustaine] I am a snyper (?) Always hit the mark Paid assassin Working after dark

Looking through the night Using infra-red My target on you Aimed at your head $10.000 up front $10.000 when I'm through And I know just what to do And ya know I'll do it too Then I'm coming back for you Back for you! I do the "getting rid of" Don't tell me why Don't need to hear the truth Don't need the lies Now pay me quickly And now we're through It brings me great pleasure To say my next job is you Don't you know that Killing is my business And business is good [repeat] You'd better believe it [solo: Poland] 4. The Skull Beneath The Skin [D. Mustaine] [solo: Mustaine] Mean and infectous The evil prophets rise Dance of the macabre As witches streak the sky Decadent worship of Black magic and sorcery In the womb of the devils dungeon Trapped without a plea [solo: Mustaine] See thing in agony Necrosis is the fate Pins sticking through the skin The venom now sedates Locked in a pillory Nowhere to be round Screaming for your life But no-one hears a sound Help me Prepare the patients scalp To peel away Metal caps his ears He'll hear not what we say Solid steel visor Riveted cross his eyes

Iron staples close his jaws So no one hears his cries The skull beneath the skin Now your drawn and quartered Your bones will make the x Symbol stands for poison And it's chained to your head And as we fold your arms To make the holy cross We cross the crucifix Religion has been lost The skull beneath the skin [solo: Mustaine] 5. The Boots [l. hazelwood - D. Mustaine] [solo: Poland] You keep saying you got something for me Some things you call love, but I call sex You've been kissing when you ought-a-be-a Screwing and now someone else can kiss your ass These boots are made for walking That's just what they'll do And one of these days these boots Are gonna walk all over you [solo: Poland] You keep lying and there ain't no believing And you keep same'n when you ought-a-be-a leaving Now what's right is right but you ain't been right yet These boots... [solo: Poland] You've keep dressing ways you shouldn't be dressing And you keep thinking that you'll never get burned ha! I just found me a brand new box spring mattress What you know bitch you got a lot to learn These boots... are you ready boots [solo: Poland] And you think I'm kidding, dont'ya?! 6. Rattle Head [D. Mustaine] Here I come Stand up and plant your feet Listen I'm letting off steam Now throw your hands in the air

Let it loose I don't fucking care [solo: Poland] Rattle head A dose of metal you need To bang your head til you bleed It's time for snapping some neck Slashing, thrashing to megadeth [solo: Poland] Rattle head You, your head is pounding with pain Winning, sinning, beginning Feeding, the needing for bleeding Bashing, smashing, crashing Frying, annihilating you! [solo: Poland] There's someone back in the shadows You feel though you can't see his eyes He'll bash your head if you cross him Ain't quite your average guy Don't wear no leather to "fittin" Don't wear no spikes to be "cool" Don't want no woman beside him Just make it fast, loud and rude Rattle head [solo: Mustaine] I'm a rattle head Rattle your goddamn head! 7. Chosen Ones [D. Mustaine] You doubt your strength or courage Don't come to join with me For death surely waits you With sharp and pointy teeth An animal so vicious No others fought and won So on the field of battle We are the chosen ones Human bones blanket the dirt Of the heathens lair That we must pass this den of death The only path from here But I walk in the light The time to die has come No-one shall take my life I'm of the chosen ones Black shadows fill the sky

As the creatures eyes grow near Raise the shield of the holy pilgrims High into the air Heavens powers fill my arms Onward now to fight I'm sent Oh the beast is coming To put you to the test [solo: Mustaine] Lookout! Now this land is mine to pillage Rape, and steal, and take at will Never let you cross this path I reign for now I stay to kill 8. Looking Down The Cross [D. Mustaine] [solo: Mustaine] Now before they take me And my blessed life Now you'll know why death Was summoned here tonight I'll recall my perils They'll kill me in pride No, I can't run away There's no place to hide Though too much to live for I owe enough to die Ask not for salvation My death shall mean their lives Hatred and guilt the alter they've built High priests of sun Destiny, fate the wicked ones gate Beckoning you in Down the walkways Through the blood stained town Looking down the cross Bleeding from the crown Led to stay To die besides the thieves Kill the king Of the world to be And now to you, this will come A putrefying pestilence More noxious than the serpents breath Male violently destined More corrupt than the malice of Choronzon More disease than the wind Of the moonlight sun Putrefaction you've caused No need for confession Now you wish you had a god

To stop your demolition Crushing the bones of the hundred folds Swinging the judgement hammer Man, woman, child no-one is safe The heads of the dead are the banner And this was all you got So don (?) these broken wings Sands of time run out Bells of hades ring Is this a nightmare To unhallow thy name Smell of brimstone Dancing in the flames No help now As you fulfill his task Chief of evil Has got you by the ass St free To shaken the throne Just a dream? Your weeping all alone [solo: Mustaine] Looking down the cross (speak no evil) I'm looking down the cross (speak no evil) 9. Mechanix [D. Mustaine] Imagine you were at my station And you brought your motor to me Your a burner yeah a real motor car Said you wanna get your order filled Made me shiver when I put it in Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you Who ever though you'd be better At turning a screw than me I do it for my life Made my drive shaft crank Made my pistons bulge Made my ball bearings melt from the heat We were shifting hard when we took off Put tonight all four on the floor When we hit top end ya know it feels too slow I'm giving you my room service And ya know it's more than enough Oh one more time ya know I'm in love [solo: Mustaine] "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" (1986)

1. Wake Up Dead I sneak in my own house, It's four in the morning, I had too much to drink, Said I was out with the boys, I creep in my bedroom, I slip into bed, I know if I wake her, I'll wake up dead, [Chorus:] I wonder, will she find out, About the other, other lover, Diana. Wake Wake Wake Wake up up up up dead, you die, dead, and buried, dead, you die, dead.

2. The Conjuring Welcome to out sanguinary sect of worship, Feel at home in our black conventicle, As we anathematise, All of those who oppose us, Don't summon the devil, Don't call the priests, If you need the strength, The conjuring. Obey!!! Behold the flames rise, From the compass' cardinal points, Burn the sacred oil, And, with the ashes you'll annoint, Arrange the symbols, Of the wizard, and, magician, Light the candles, Place the parchment paper in position, Between its leaves place, The lash from a black cat's eye, A straw of a broom, Fold, and, burn, and, centralise, Don't summon the devil, Don't call the priests, If you need the strength, The conjuring, I am the devil's advocate, A salesman, if you will, You know my name. [You know my name], I met your father years ago, Gave him what he'd please,

He called my name, you'll do the same, I'm claiming what is mine by right, It's time to close the deal, You're bought and sold, bought and sold, Come join me in my infernal depths, Mephisto's hall of fame I've got your soul, I've got your soul, The conjuring. Obey!!! 3. Peace Sells What do you mean, "I don't believe in God"? I talk to him every day. What do you mean, "I don't support your system"? I go to court when I have to. What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"? I got nothing better to do And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"? Why do you think I'm broke? Huh? [Chorus:] If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line. But, it better work this time. What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"? I didn't know you had any feelings. What do you mean, "I ain't kind"? I'm just not your kind. What do you mean, "I couldn't be the president of the United States of America"? Tell me something, it's still "We the people", right? [Chorus: (repeat)] If there's a new way I'll be the first in line, But, it better work this time. Can you put a price on peace? Peace, Peace sells..., Peace, Peace sells..., Peace sells...,but who's buying? Peace sells...,but who's buying? Peace sells...,but who's buying? Peace sells...,but who's buying? [n+1 times more] No, peace sells... 4. Devil's Island The light that fills my lonely cell, Is blocked out by the key, That locks the door to this hell,

The place they wanted me. Time's racing like the wind, Execution's near, Oh lord, I wait for death, And, yes, I have no fear. I recall that night, my every breath, And, step along the way. Closed my eyes, walking, As danger paved the way. The devil, and the darkness Let her evil wander free And, here on Devils Island, The final stop for me. [Chorus:] Devils Island, Devils Island. Oh, there is no escape, The sea is full of sharks. The tide takes you away, and Smashes you on the rocks. The sun is shining, But feel not today, It's warmth, it's dying, And fading away. [Chorus (repeat):] Devils Island, (here I stay) Devils Island. Oh, hear the call, From the grave beyond. Oh, so pernicious, Her soul it creates song. As there is no man, that is Here upon the earth, Able to terminate our Noisome will since birth. The priest that reads the sermons, Is walking next to me, To the stake, my last request, To have her burn with me. But, so it did, the heavens opened, Rain began to fall. The final judgement came, and Was spread before you all. Final judgement. Old, weak, and feeble, But the lesson taught to me, To stay away from evil, She doesn't care for me. She haunts me in my sleep, Though I tore that page away. And, here on Devils Island, I'll always have to stay. [Chorus (repeat):]

Devils Island, Devils Island. (Devils Island, Devils Island.) Here I am. [Chorus (repeat 4 times):] Devils Island, Devils Island. 5. Good Mourning / Black Friday Good Mourning. Hey, I don't feel so good. Something's not right, Something's coming over me What the f**k is this? Killer, intruder, homicidal man. If you see me coming, run as fast as you can. A blood thirsty demon who's stalking the street. I hack up my victims like pieces of meat. Blood thirsty demon, sinister fiend, Bludgeonous slaughters, my evil deeds. My hammer's a cold piece of blood-lethal steel. I grin while you writhe with the pain that I deal. Swinging the hammer, I hack through their heads, Deviant defilers, you're next to be dead. I unleash my hammer with sadistic intent. Pounding, surrounding, slamming through your head. Yeah! Their bodies convulse, in agony, and, pain. I mangle their faces, till no features remain. A blade for the butchering, I cut them to shreds. First take out the organs, then cut off the head. The remains of flesh now sop under my feet. One more bloody massacre, the murders' complete. I seek to dismember, a sadist fiend. And, blood baths are my way of getting clean. I lurk in the alleys, wait for the kill. I have no remorse for the blood that I spill A merciless butcher who lives underground. I'm out to destroy you and ,I will, cut you down. (Cut you down) I see you, and, I'm waiting ,for Black Friday. Killer, intruder, homicidal man. If you see me coming, run as fast as you can. A blood thirsty demon who's stalking the street. I hack up my victims like pieces of meat. I lurk in the alleys, wait for the kill. I have no remorse for the blood that I spill A merciless butcher who lives underground. I'm out to destroy you and ,I will, cut you down. It's Black Friday, paint the devil on the wall. [8 times] 6. Bad Omen

Down fell the stars, as they Splashed into the sea. "Mi nomine Baphomet", Come dance with me. Sacrifice the virgins, Spiritual rites. Their master's time has come, The moon is full tonight. Drinking, dancing, They worship, and toast The devil, who's watching, With demon's remote. Fire, rising, Racing in your blood. Possessed, naive, His service is done. Bloody blasphemy. Sinister's the word, As the demon's take their fill. An orgy's taking place, Human blood will spill. An act of worship, As they conceive the ghouls. Satan has their souls, They sing pagan tunes. The ceremony, Is sure to be cursed. They ask for his blessings, But, down comes the worst. Their bodies, soulless, A corpse from the grave. Their minds are helpless, And, no-one can save [x 5], No-one can save them (oh no). [x 2] 7. I Ain't Superstitious I ain't superstitious, When a black cat crosses my path. And, I ain't superstitious, As I break the looking glass. Ain't afraid of no demons, Don't make me laugh! I ain't superstitious, Under the ladder I go. I ain't superstitious, It's all bulls**t, don't you know! Ain't afraid of the shadows, I like the dark anyway, and that's a fact! Superstitious [x 2] I ain't superstitious, No such thing as bad luck.

I ain't superstitious, I couldn't really give a f**k. Take your stupid superstitions, And find some other paranoidal, Chickens**t, sissy, worm, and, tell it to him. Superstitious [x 2] 8. My Last Words My life's on time, But again my sense is late. Feel a might unsteady, But still I have to play. Six to one's the odds, And, we have the highest stakes. And, once again I gamble with my very life today. Highly polished metal, The oil makes it gleam. Fill the terror chamber, Your mind begins to scream. Your life is like a trigger, Never trouble till you're squeezed. Now you crack a smile, As you give the gun a tease. Place the piston down, Now give the gun a spin. Soon as the spinning stops, Oh no, the game starts in. A hateful way of vengeance, A bit of playful sin. Load another bullet, Now the second round begins. A couple grains of powder, A couple grams of lead. A touch against the trigger, A touch inside the head. Take another drink, and Raise the last bets. Think about my last words, They might be what I just said. A click comes from the hammer, That couldn't drive a nail. Sense the numbing cold blue, Or the red of Hades' grill. A fraction of a second, Do you lose, or maybe still, Pass it to the left, And collect your mighty kill. Add another bullet, The third round begins. Soon as the spinning stops, Oh no, the game starts in. Please, no I.O.U.'s,

No markers for death. Does anybody play? Anybody, Somebody, anybody play. You, You, You, You, you, you, come come next victim, you next victim, you on, next victim, on, next victim, next next your your to die. [s: your turn] to die. turn to die. turn to die.

"So Far, So Good... So What !" (1988) 1. Into The Lungs Of Hell [Music by D.Mustaine] [Instrumental] 2. Set The World A Fire [Music by D.Mustaine] Red flesh cloud's choking out They said it'd never come, we All forms of life die now the Time to kiss your ass goodbye the morning sky knew it was a lie humans all succumb the end has just begun

Distorted figures walk the street, it's 1989 Weeds once underneath your feet have grown to vines Bodies melted like a candies, a land without a face No time to change your fate, no time left, it's too late The arsenal of megadeth can't be rid they said And if it comes, the living will envy the dead Racing for power, and all come in last No winning first stone cast This falsehood worldly peace It's treaties soon will cease No one will be left to prove that humans existed Maybe soon the children will be born open-fisted We all live on one planet it will all go up in smoke Too bad they couldn't see this lethal energy And now the final scene, a global darkening Dig deep piles of rubble and ruins Towering overhead both far and wide There's unknown tools for World War III Einstein said ' We'll use rocks on the other side ' No survivors set the world afire 3. Anarchy In The U.K. [Song by Glen Matlock, Johnny Rotten, Paul Cook, Steve Jones] Right now I am an anti-Christ And I am an anarchist Don't know what I want, but I know how get it

I want to destroy, possibly ? 'Cause I want to be anarchy, no dog's body Anarchy for the U.S.A. It's coming sometime, it may be I give a wrong time, stop a traffic light Your future dream is a shopping spree 'Cause I want to be anarchy, in the city Of many ways to get what you want I use the best, I use the rest I use the enemy I use anarchy 'Cause I want to be anarchy, it's the only way to be Is this the M.P.L.A. ? Is this the U.D.A. ? Is this the I.R.A. ? I thought it was the U.S.A., or just another country And other cunt-like tendencies 'Cause I want to be anarchy,'cause I want to be Anarchy, you know what I mean ? 'Cause I want to be anarchist, again I'm pissed Destroy ! 4. Mary Jane [Music by D.Mustaine, lyrics by D.Mustaine/D.Ellefson] Forgive me father for I have sinned I'm a child of air, I'm a witch of the wind And I'm still wide awake... Mary Jane From the earth, up through the trees I can hear her calling me Her voice rides on the breeze Oh, it's haunting me No, I can't get away No, there's no escape If I know I'm going crazy I must not be insane [CHORUS:] Beware my friends, as you pass by As you are now so once was I As I'm now so you must be Prepare my friends to follow me Forgive me father for I have sinned I'm a child of air, I'm a witch of the wind Fingers gripped around my brain

No control my mind is lame I'm in the astral plane, and I'll never be the same Never, never, never, never, never, never Never, never, never [CHORUS:] It hurts so bad I can't breathe Prepare to follow me 5. 502 [Music & lyrics by D.Mustaine] Pull over, shithead, this is the cops Full tanks, pocket lined with cash Full throttle, gonna rip some ass Drive all day, and through the night Romance the road,winding left to right The stars above guide me, the moonlight is free A feeling inside me, and the whole world to see Driving fast makes me feel good The speed of light trapped under my hood Breaking laws, 'cause there's nothing to do Driving the interstate, stopped for a 502 Hundreds of miles rolled of today Sings lose their meaning, minutes tick away Dirt roads to interstates, I must have drove them all Cigarettes and burgers, caffeine and alcohol Drive until daybreak, always on the go Life on the freeway, night shift till dawn patrol Driving fast makes me feel good The speed of light trapped under my hood Breaking laws, 'cause there's nothing to do Driving the interstate, stopped for a 502 Stopped for a 502, next time it's gonna be you Stars above guide me This feeling inside me I drive until daybreak Life on the freeway is hell I'm coming through 6. In My Darkest Hour [Music by D.Mustaine, lyrics by D.Mustaine/D.Ellefson] In my hour of need Ha you're not there And though I reached out for you

Wouldn't lend a hand Through the darkest hour Grace did not shine on me It feels so cold, very cold No one cares for me Did you ever think I get lonely Did you ever think that I needed love Did you ever think to stop thinking You're the only one that I'm thinking of You'll never know how hard I tried To find my space and satisfy you too Things will be better when I'm dead and gone Don't try to understand, knowing you I'm probably wrong But oh how I lived my life for you Still you'd turn away Now as I die for you My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name All these years I thought I was wrong Now I know it was you Raise your head raise your face your eyes Tell me who you think you are, who ? I walk, I walk alone Into the promised land There's a better place for me But it's far, far away Everlasting life for me In a perfect world But I gotta die first Please God send me on my way Time has a way of taking time Loneliness is not only felt by fools Alone I call to ease the pain Yearning to be held by you, alone, so alone, I'm lost Consumed by the pain The pain, the pain, the pain Won't you hold me again You just laughed, ha, ha, bitch My whole life is work built on the past But the time has come when all things shall pass This good thing passed away In my darkest hour 7. Liar [Music by D.Mustaine / D.Ellefson, lyrics by D.Mustaine] You take great pride in never having lived up to anything Lie, steal, cheat, and kill, a real bad guy

Your daddy is a wine, and your mommy's quite insane From altar boy to sewer rat, you don't give a damn Your sister is a junkie, get "it" anyway she can Your brother's a gay singer in a stud leather band Your girlfriend's got herpes to go with your help and AIDS There ain't one person you know you ain't ripped off yet Look deep in the mirror, look deep into its eyes Your face is replaced, a creature you despise But I know what you're made of, it ain't much I'm afraid I know you'll be lying until your dying day Make up your stories, but truth's so hard to say Brain is numb and your tongue will surely dig you grave Your mind is sickly from Alzheimer's disease And decadence and debauchery killed your memories You're a liar, liar, liar, everyone can see You're a liar, liar, liar, it's all you'll ever be You're a liar, liar, liar, it's what you mean to me Liar, liar, lies... Start trouble, spread pain Piss and venom in your veins Talk nasty, breathe fire Smell rotten, you're a liar Sweat liquor, breathe snot Eat garbage, spit blood Diseased, health hazard Scum bag, fucking bastard Grease face, teeth decay Hair matted, drunk all day Abscessed, sunken veins Rot gut, scrambled brain Steal money, crash cars Rob jewelry, hock guitars Rot in hell, it's time you know To your master, off you go You're a liar A fucking liar Filthy liar You, you, you, you fucking liar! You're a liar 8. Hook In Mouth [Music by D.Mustaine/D.Ellefson, lyrics by D.Mustaine] A cockroach in the concrete, courthouse tan and beady eyes A slouch with fallen arches, purging truths into great lies A little man with a big eraser, changing history Procedures that he's programmed to, all he hears and sees Altering the facts and figures, events and every issue Make a person disappear, and no one will ever miss you Rewrites every story, every poem that ever was

Eliminates incompetence, and those who break the laws Follow the instructions of the New Way's Evil Book of Rules Replacing rights with wrongs, the files and records in the schools You said you've got the answers, well who asked you anyway ? Ever think may be it was meant to be this way ? Don't try to fool us, we know the worst is yet to come I believe my kingdom will come [CHORUS:] F, is for fighting, R is for red Ancestors' blood in battles they've shed E, we elect them, E, we eject them In the land of the free and the home of the brave D, for your dying, O, your overture M, will cover your grave with manure This spells out FREEDOM, it means nothing to me As long as there's P.M.R.C F, is for fighting, R is for red Ancestors' blood in battles they've shed E, we elect them, E, we eject them In the land of the free and the home of the brave D, for your dying, O, your overture M, is for money, you know what that cures This spells out FREEDOM, it means nothing to me As long as there's P.M.R.C [CHORUS:] Put your hand right up my shirt Pull the strings that make me work Jaws will part, words fall out Like a fish with hook in mouth Rewrites every story, every poem that ever was Eliminates incompetence, and those who break the laws Follow the instructions of the New Way's Evil Book of Rules Replacing rights with wrongs, the files and records in the schools I'm not a fish I'm a man Hook in mouth "Rust In Peace" (1990) 1. Holy Wars...The Punishment Due Brother will kill brother Spilling blood across the land Killing for religion Something I don't understand Fools like me, who cross the sea And come to foreign lands Ask the sheep, for their beliefs Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided Surely will not stand My past erased, no more disgrace No foolish naive stand The end is near, it's crystal clear Part of the master plan Don't look now to Israel It might be in your homelands Holy wars Upon my podium, as the Know it all scholar Down in my seat of judgement Gavel's bang, uphold the law Up on my soapbox, a leader Out to change the world Down in my pulpit as the holier Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God Wage the war on organized crime Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks Behind the lines Some people risk to employ me Some people live to destroy me Either way they die. They killed my wife, and my baby With hopes to enslave me First mistake...last mistake! Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants Next mistake...no more mistakes! Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't thinking it Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away I know what I said, now I must scream of the overdose And the lack of mercy killings. 2. Hangar 18 Welcome to our fortress tall Take some time to show you around Impossible to break these walls For you see the steel is much too strong Computer banks to rule the world Instruments to sight the stars Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much. Foreign life forms inventory Suspended State of cryogenics Selective amnesia's the story Believed foretold but who'd suspect

The military intelligence Two words combined that can't make sense Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much. 3. Take No Prisoners Got on chance, infiltrate them Get it right, terminate them The Panzers will, permeate them Break their pride, denigrate them And their people, retrograde them Typhus, deteriate them Epidemic, devastate them Take no prisoners, cremate them Going to war, give 'em hell D-Day, next stop Normandie Beginning of the end WE know how to and sure as shit we'll win War is peace sure man A retreat for the damned A playground for the demented A haven for those who walk this world Bereft of heart and soul Love and war they say all is fair Take his life But won't take his hair Your body has parts your Country can spare By the way son here's Your wheelchair He once had to be all he could be Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see Funny thing, he's like you & me It's a funny thing, a funny thing Tears streak his solemn stare Abandoned for wreckage nobody cares No one knew what would happen there No one spoke no one even dared Don't ask what you can do for you country Ask what your country can do for you Take no prisoners, take no shit 4. Five Magics Bestow upon me magic Wizard, all knowing, all wise I want to rule this kingdom Make sweet the breeze now defiled Dethrone the evil prince's iron fists In velvet gloves of sin Parade the grey robed monks The vestal virgins, wheel the wyvern's in

Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage Let me be the protege of Five Magics Give me alchemy, give mewizardry Give me sorcery, thermatology Electricity, magic if you please, master all of these, bring him to his knees I master five magics, I master five magics I master five magics, I master five magics Possessed with hellish torment, possessed with hellish torment I master magics five, I master magics five Hunting the abyss lord, hunting the abyss lord Only one will stay alive, only one will stay alive He who lives by the sword, he who lives by the sword Will surely also die, will surely also die He who lives in sin, he who lives in sin Will surely live the lie [Solo: Mustaine] 5. Poison Was The Cure I miss the warm embrace I felt First time you touched me Secure and safe in open arms I should have known you'd crush me A snake you were when we met I loved you anyway Pulling out your poisoned fangs The venom never goes away Serpent swims free in my blood Dragons sleeping in my veins Jackyl speaking with tongue Roach egg laying in my brain Once stalked beneath your shadow Sleepwalking to the gallows I'm the sun that beats your brow in 'til I finally threw the towel in Never knowing if I'd wake up in a Whirlpool got redundant My brain was just some driftwood In a cesspool I became dead From a rock star to a desk fool Was my destiny someone said Love's a tide pool Taste the waters life's abundant Taste me 6. Lucretia Sitting up late at night A tiptoe through the darkness Cold as hell black as spades

Aware of my immediate surrounding In my place I escape Up into my hideout Hiding from everyone My friends all say Dave your mental anyway hey! Drift into a deeper state I stalk the cobwebbed stairways Dirt grits beneath me feet The stair creaks, I precariously sneak Hypnosis guides my hand I slipside through the walkways Sit in granny's rockin' chair Memories are whirling by yeah Reminisce in the attic Lucretia waits impatiently Cobwebs make me squint The cobra so eloquently glints Moonbeams surge through the sky The crystal ball's energized Surely that like the cat waiting Lucretia rocks away 7. Tornado Of Souls This morning I made the call The one that ends it all Hanging up, I wanted to cry But dammit, this well's gone dry Not for the money, not for the fame Not for the power, just no more games But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go No more living trapped inside In her way I'll surely die In the eye of the tornado, blow me away You'll grow to loathe my name You'll hate me just the same You won't need your breath And soon you'll meet your death Not from the years, not from the use Not from the tears, just self abuse Who's to say what's for me to say...be...do Cause a big nothing it'll be for me The land of opportunity The golden chance for me My future looks so bright Now I think I've seen the light Can't say what's on my mind Can't do what I really feel In this bed I made for me Is where I sleep, I really feel I warn you of the fate

Proven true to late Your tongue twist perverse Come drink now of this curse And now I fill your brain I spin you round again My poison fills your head As I tuck you into bed You feel my fingertips You won't forget my lips You'll feel my cold breath It's the kiss of death 8. Dawn Patrol Thermal count is rising In perpetual writhing The primordial ooze And the sanity they lose Awakened in the morning To more air pollution warnings Still we sleepwalk off to work While our nervous systems jerk Pretending not to notice How history had forebode us With the green house in effect Our environment was wrecked Now I can only laugh As I read our epitaph We end our lives as moles In the dark of dawn patrol 9. Rust In Peace...Polaris Tremble you weakings, cower in fear I am your ruler, land, sea and air Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall I am nuclear murderer I am Polaris Ready to pounce at the touch of a button My systems locked in on military gluttons I rule on land, air and sea Pass judgement on humanity Winds blow from the bowels of hell Will we give warnings, only time will tell Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind I spread disease like a dog Discharge my payload a mile high Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us When will this cease The warheads will all rust in peace Bomb shelters filled to the brim Survival such a silly whim World leaders sell missiles cheap

Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps High priests of holocaust, fire from the sea Nuclear winter spreading disease The day of final conflict All pay the price The third world war Rapes peace, takes life Back to the start, talk of the part When the Earth was cold as ice Total dismay as the sun passed away And the days where black as night Eradication of Earth's Population loves Polaris 10. My Creation I will give you life You'll serve only me And my will to kill You will kill for me All All You I'm that I desire that I command are here for me your master

My creation I will make for you A soul mate to love Unlike your love for me And you will take my name She She And The will be your bride will serve me too I will introduce you to Bride of Frankenstein

"Countdown To Extinction" (1992) 1. Skin O'my Teeth [Mustaine] I had wrists donning slits Flowing constantly My broken body in a wreck Wrapped around a tree A crosswalk hit and run The finish line for me People clutter in the gutter Take a look and see [chorus:] No escaping pain

You belong to me Clinging on to life By the skin o'my teeth My blood flows through the streets Deluge from the wounds Empty jars of sleeping pills On the dresser in my room My wet brain neighbor cranes His neck in time to see The white lights a train Bearing down on me [Chorus] [Solo - Marty] I won't feel the hurt I'm not trash any longer That that doesn't kill me Only makes me stronger I need a ride to the morgue That's what 911 is for So, tag my toe and don't forget Ooh to close the drawer [Chorus] 2. Symphony Of Destruction [Mustaine] You take a mortal man, And put him in control Watch him become a god Watch peoples heads a'roll A'roll... [chorus:] Just like the Pied Piper Led rats through the streets We dance like marionettes Swaying to the Symphony ... Of Destruction Acting like a robot Its metal brain corrodes You try to take its pulse Before the head explodes Explodes... [Chorus] [Solo - Marty] The earth starts to rumble World powers fall A'warring for the heavens A peaceful man stands tall

Tall... [Chorus] 3. Architecture Of Aggression [Mustaine-Ellefson] Born from the dark, In the black cloak of night. To envelop its prey below, Deliver to the light. To eliminate your enemy, Hit them in their sleep, And when all is won and lost, The spoils of wars are yours to keep. [chorus] Great nations built from the bones of the dead With mud and straw, blood and sweat, You know your worth when your enemies Praise your architecture of aggression [Solo : Marty] Ensuing power vacuum A toppled leader dies His body fuels the power fire And the flames rise to the sky One side of his face a kiss The other genocide Time to pay with your ass A worldwide suicide [Chorus] [Solo : Marty] Born from the dark In the black cloak of night To envelop its prey below Deliver to the light To eliminate your enemy Hit them in their sleep And when all is won and lost The spoils of war are yours to keep [Chorus] 4. Foreclosure Of A Dream [Mustaine - Ellefson] Rise so high, yet so far to fall A plan of dignity and balance for all Political breakthrough, euphoria's high More borrowed money, more borrowed time

Backed in a corner, caught up in the race Means to an end ended in disgrace Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase [chorus] Foreclosure of a dream Those visions never seen Until all is lost Personal holocaust Foreclosure of a dream Barren land that once filled a need Are worthless now, dead without a dead Slipping away from an iron grip Nature's scales are forced to tip The heartland cries, loss of all pride To leave ain't believing, so try and be tried Insufficient funds, insanity and suicide [Chorus] [Solo : Dave] Now with new hope some will be proud This is no hoax, no one pushed out Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer Break new ground of a new frontier New ideas will surely get by No deed, or dividend. Some may ask "Why?" You'll find the solution, the answers in the sky [Solo : Marty] Rise so high, yet so far to fall A plan of dignity and balance for all Political breakthrough, euphoria's high More borrowed money, more borrowed [Chorus] Holocaust 5. Sweating Bullets [Mustaine] Hello me ... Meet the real me And my misfits way of life A dark black past is my Most valued possessions Hindsight is always 20-20 But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy Speak of mutually assured destruction? Nice story ... Tell it to Reader's Digest!!! Feeling paranoid True enemy or false friend? Anxiety's attacking me, and

My air is getting thin I'm in trouble for the things I haven't got to yet I'm chomping at the bit and my Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets Hello me ... It's me again You can subdue, but never tame me It gives me a migraine headache Thinking down to your level Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance Mankind has got to know His limitations Feeling claustrophobic Like the walls are closing in Blood stains on my hands and I don't know where I've been I'm in trouble for the things I haven't got to yet I'm sharpening the axe, and my Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets [Solo : Dave] Well, me ... It's nice talking to myself A credit to dementia Some day you too will know my pain And smile its blacktooth grin If the war inside my head Won't take a day off I'll be dead My icy fingers claw your back Here I come again Feeling paranoid True enemy or false friend? Anxiety's attacking me, and And my air is getting thin Feeling claustrophobic Like the walls are closing in Blood stains on my hands and I don't know where I've been Once you committed me Now you've acquitted me Claiming validity For your stupidity I'm chomping at the bit I'm sharpening the axe Here I come again, whoa! Sweating bullets 6. This Was My Life [Mustaine] It was just another day

It was just another fight It was words strung into sentences It was doomed to not be right There There There There is is is is something wrong something wrong nothing left of one thing I can with me with you us do

Lying on your bed Examining my head This is the part of me that hates Paybacks are a bitch I throw the switch Somewhere an electric chair awaits Hey! This was my life Hey! This was my fate This This This This Now Now Now Now was was was was the the the the wrong thing to do wrong one to be doing road to destiny road to my ruin

there's there's there's there's

motives for the suspect nothing left to say method to the madness society to pay

[Chorus] In In In In our our our our life there's if beliefs there's lie business there's sin bodies there's die

[Solo : Dave] This was my life This was my fate 7. Countdown To Extinction [Mustaine - Ellefson - Menza - Friedman] Endangered species, caged in fright Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight The stage in set, now pay the price An ego boost don't think twice Technology, the battle's unfair You pull the hammer without a care Squeeze the trigger that makes you Man Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned ... The hunt is canned All are gone, all but one No contest, nowhere to run No more left, only one

This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare The skin and thophy, oh so rare Silence speaks louder than words Ignore the guilt, and take your turn Liars anagram is "lairs" Man you were never even there Killed a few feet from the cages Point blank, you're so courageous ... So courageous [Chorus] One hour from now Another species of life form Will disappear off the face of the planet Forever ... and the rate is accelerating 8. High Speed Dirt [Mustaine - Ellefson] Do it if you dare Leaping from the sky Hurling through the air Exhilarating high See the earth below Soon to make a crater Blue sky, black death I'm off to meet my maker Energy of the Gods, adrenalin surge Won't stop 'til I hit the ground, I'm on my way for sure Up here in the air, this will never hurt I'm on my way to impact, taste the high speed dirt Paralyzed with fear Feel velocity gain Entering a near Catatonic state Pressure of the sound Roaring through my head Crash into the ground Damned if I'll be dead [Chorus] Jump or Die! [Solo : Dave, Marty] Dropping all my weight Going down full throttle The pale horse awaits Like a genie in a bottle Fire in my veins

Faster as I go I forgot my name I'm a dirt torpedo [Solo : Marty] High Speed Dirt ... [Solo : Dave] 9. Psychotron [Mustaine] Assassin in stealth Assailant from Hell Impervious to damage Computer on-board Engaged in a war Non-stop combatant Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man Part bionic And organic Not a cyborg Call him Psychotron Burning inside Godspeed in glide Battle plan running A killing machine Just downright mean And forever cunning Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man [Chorus] Target to destroy Arms in employ Full assault fire threat Sensors indicate You will terminate Life systems disconnect [Chorus] Psychotron 10. Captive Honour [Mustaine - Ellefson - Menza - Friedman] Madness comes, and madness goes An insane place, with insane moves Battles without, for battles within Where evil lives and evil rules

Breaking them up, just breaking them in Quickest way out, quickest relief wins Never disclose, never betray Cease to speak or cease to breathe And when you kill a man, you're a murderer Kill many, and you're a conqueror Kill them all ... Ooh ... Oh you're a God! Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury Have you reached a verdict? Yes, we have Your Honour, we find the defendant Guilty! On all counts for crimes against all humanity By virtue of the jury's decision and the power Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be Incarcerated with no possibility of parole for life Life? ... What do ya mean life? ... I ain't got a life Boy! ... Your soul better belong to Jesus! ... Hmmm-mmm cause your ass belongs to me! Captive honour, ain't no honour No time for questions No time for the games Start kicking ass And taking down the names A long shit list A shorter fuse He is untouchable And guarantees you'll lose Captive honour, ain't no honour [Solo : Dave] Inside the big house His nightmare unfolds Before he got there His manpussy was sold Black, blanket welcome This taught guy's now a bitch Praying for death It can't be worse than this Captive honour, ain't no honour [Solo : Dave, Marty] 11. Ashes In Your Mouth [Mustaine - Ellefson - Menza - Friedman] People have round shoulders from fairing heavy loads And the soldiers liberate them, laying mines along their roads

Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall Of the countless corpses piled up along the wailing wall Melting down all metals, turning plows and sheats to swords Shun words of the Bible, we need implements of war Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain Destiny, that crooked schemer, says the dead shall rise again Where do we go from here? And should we really care The end is finally here God have mercy! Now we've rewritten history The one thing we've found out Sweet taste of vindication It turns to ashes in your mouth [Chorus] If you're fighting to live It's OK to die! The answer to your question is ... Welcome to tomorrow! [Solo : Marty, Marty, Dave] Where do we go from here? God have mercy! [Chorus] "Youthanasia" (1994) 1. Reckoning Day I like the way that I make you itch And all the reasons I give you to bitch And how I make you wanna scream in pain And feel your life is just a losing game I like the way that you let me in The way you look when the walls cave in I like the way that your stomach knots And how you cry for it all to stop I like the way that you fool yourself And make believe there's nobody else I like the way that you stand in line And beg salvation from the empty skies Don't want no revenge Ain't no pay back time It ain't called getting even Here comes the reckoning day I like the things that you try to fake And your face when I see you break

And that you say you will pray for me You realize you are prey for me I like the way you stay on attack No matter what, I keep coming back And how you try to hold me down But you end up driven to the ground 2. Train Of Consequences I'm doing you a favor As I'm taking all your money I guess I should feel sorry But I don't even trust me There's bad news creeping up And you feel a sudden chill How do you do? My name is trouble I'm coming in for the kill... And you know I will Set the ball A-Rollin I'll be clicking off the miles On the train of consequences My boxcar life O' style My thinking is derailed I'm tied up to the tracks The train of consequences There ain't no turning back No horse ever ran as fast As the money that you bet I'm blowing on my cards And I play them to my chest Life's fabric is corrupt Shot through with corroded thread As for me I hocked my brains Packed my bags and headed west 3. Addicted To Chaos Only yesterday they told me you were gone All these normal people, will I find another one? Monkey on my back, Aching my bones I forgot you said "One day you'll walk alone" I said I need you, does that make me wrong? Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong? My heart was blackened, It's bloody red A hole in my heart, a hole in my head? Who will help me up? Where's the helping hand? Will you turn on me? Is this my final stand? In a dream I cannot see Tangled abstract fallacy

Random turmoil builds in me I'm addicted to chaos Lights shined on my path, Turn bad days into good Turn breakdowns into blocks, I smashed 'em Cause I could My brain was Labored, My head would spin Don't let me down, don't give up, don't give in The rain comes down, cold wind blows The plans we made are back up on the road Turn up my collar, welcome the unknown Remember that you said "One day you'll walk alone" 4. À Tout Le Monde Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game The more seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes When I found out how little I accomplished All my plans denied So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all À tout le monde [To all the world] À tout mes amis [To all my friends] Je vous aime [I love you] Je dois partir [I have to leave] These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free If my heart was still alive I know it would surely break And my memories left with you There's nothing more to say Moving on is a simple thing What it leaves behind is hard You know the sleeping feel no more pain And the living are scarred À tout le monde [To all the world] À tout mes amis [To all my friends] Je vous aime [I love you] Je dois partir [I have to leave] These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free So as you read this know my friends

I'd love to stay with you all Please smile, smile when you think about me My body's gone that's all [2x] À tout le monde [To all the world] À tout mes amis [To all my friends] Je vous aime [I love you] Je dois partir [I have to leave] These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free 5. Elysian Fields Uneasy feeling, Burning out my eyes I hope the end is less painful than my life I stand on trial before the gods On Judgement day A blink of an eye between The cradle and the grave One last look at visions of flesh The last hope of man on earth Pontius Pilate still washing his hands The world don't want to be saved Only left alone Elysian Fields... We are storming the heavens To raise the swords and shields We ascend to our destiny To the Elysian fields Soaring to the sun With blood upon their wings Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind Man still has one belief One decree that stands alone The laying down of arms I like cancer to their bones 6. The Killing Road Again we stalk the stage At mach speed we engage Feeding people's rage The big cat's left it's cage Back in the bus again To catch another plane The behavior's quite insane But we do it for the fame, yeah I lost my mind, I lost all my money I lost my life to the killing road

The road will never end It always starts again Another show's around the bend Another long lost friend Faceless as the snow There's nothing special about the road It's just another haul It's just too damn long that's all, yeah 7. Blood Of Heroes Walking stiff let me tell ya Better left for dead And now we are on a mission Well it's full speed ahead My legion's when we do the crime Let's get one thing straight To get there early is on time And showing up on time is late Ladies and gents, we're still By the skin of our teeth, now Angel in our pocket, devil by We ain't going nowhere 'cause Still alive Blood of heroes Never die They never die We've been run down every hill Chased up all the dead end streets But if you try to cut us out You'll get a kick in the teeth Ladies and gents, we're still alive By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time Fasten up your head belts, Time to ride the skies It's time to be immortal, 'cause heroes never die 8. Family Tree Forgotten things remembered The tigers eat their young The body stayed but inside the head The mind was on the run A conspiracy of silence The only way out of pain Is turn around, run through it man Too wet to come in from the rain, Tell them... I know they were doing it to you But don't try doing it to me alive it's killing time our side heroes never die

Let me show you, how I love you It's our secret, you and me But keep it in the family tree The secret of the family tree When you hear them saying "Trust me" Don't wait to see what's next Thrown to the wolves Forever trusting Raised in a form of living hell Sing a one note song of rage Live and die within your heart So beware in the shadows Your family tree waits in the dark I say... 9. Youthanasia Who'd believe with the way things are here We'd be going anywhere telling people How to live? Who'd believe we'd spend more Shippin' drugs and guns Than to educate our sons? Sorry but That's what they did I can't help but think, Someone's forsaken you and me Luck deserted me and the truth Beat out my brains Men rise on stepping stones of their Selves to higher things I've stepped over lots of bodies on my way Thanks for the information don't need no More anything We are the damned of all the world With sadness in our hearts The wounded of the wars We've been hung out to dry You didn't want us anyway And now we're making up our minds You tell us how to run our lives We run for youthanasia 10. I Thought I Knew It All Somewhere there's a reason Why things go like they do Somewhere there's a reason Why somethings just fall through We don't always see them For what they really are But I know there's a reason,

Just can't see it from this far Maybe I don't like it, but I have no choice I know that somewhere, someone hears my voice I thought I thought How could I thought I knew it all I had it made it end this way? I knew

Somewhere there's a reason Why things don't go my way Somewhere there's a reason That I cannot explain Just like the change of season, Just may not be my turn But I know there's a reason, The lesson's mine to learn 11. Black Curtains Hey... Look around you Everything's helter-skelter Listen up... I warn you Run for cover, run Bang... It happened Time's up, Armageddon Fire...

12. Victory Now, one day I started telling everyone that "Killing Is My Business.." and I was hung like a Martyr For "Looking Down The Cross" my "Skull Beneath The Skin" Prophesied "Last Rites/Loved To Death" my friends Then I started seeing "Bad Omens" in my head "Good Mourning/Black Friday" will I "Wake Up Dead"? If I "Ain't Superstitious" then this won't mean a Thing But some crazy shit has happened since "The Conjuring" Not even close Not even close Not even close To overdose Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins A knife right through my heart, I am a victory Came "Anarchy" to "Set The World A Fire" Pain of "Hook In Mouth", "In My Darkest Hour" Corruption of the world "Peace Sells... But Nobody's Buying" Ignorant Religion "Holy Wars" and the dying, "Tornado" nearly got me by the "Skin O' My Teeth" "This Was My Life", "Foreclosure Of My Dreams" May the past "Rust In Peace" In "Hangar 18" And "Countdown To Extinction" Just be a bad dream "Lucretia" said... Not even close Not even close Not even close To overdose Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins A knife right through my heart, I am a victory 13. Millennium Of The Blind [Music - Mustaine/ Friedman, Lyrics - Mustaine] At the start of time Many centuries ago Came the spawning of Christ And the Antichrist And darkness fell upon our people And the children, they were born faceless Without eyes they could not see Born unto themselves They lived and they died In the Millennium of the Blind [Solo - Mustaine]

Crown Of Worms I am the author, dream up your pain Drink as did bacchus, rebel just like cain Lord of the city, I shall remain All pandemonium, I shall reign Sit in my fortress, up on my hill Drinking the wine, 'til I've had my fill Building up high, my castle walls Oh, to veil my splendid fall I present you, I present to you, I present you this crown of worms Surrounding myself with mysery Drawn curtains heavy of my history Exquisite I am, perfect unity On my left hand is false majesty I feign affection, efute the true story Dispute with creation, the lie is my glory I care for no one, my gospel is death For me the light's gone, only darkness is left

I present you, I present to you, I present you this crown of worms As black in deed, as cold as stone A commandment of one, as proud as gold As neglected in spirit, as time is old As legion is numbers, as legend is told I am alone, with the agony of truth My power of will, my judgement and chain My end is knowledge and conscience of guilt, My final confusion hidden from me till I'm done 3.

Go To Hell Now I lay me down to sleep Pray the lord my soul to keep If I die before i wake Pray the lord to take I'm not going to wake up today They've pulled my plug the picture fades And as my body decays mold begins to fill my grave The smell of death permeates the silk within my coffin lays Go to hell As they bury me now six feet there my body lies Still feel like I'm giong down I hear a distant wailing cry God something must've gone wrong And much too late I realize Go to hell I saw my funeral that day I know who didn't show to mourn My judgement was life in hell Pillars of pain and thorns My only friend's the goat With 666 between his horns Go to hell Place all your trust here in me Rest assured these things I know And as Charon sails the sea Your journey too shall end below Ah yes you're all sitting ducks It's true you reap what you sow Go to hell Now I lay me down to sleep Blah, blah, blah my soul to keep If I die before I wake I'll go to hell for heaven's sake

Trust Lost in a dream Nothing is what it seems Searching my head For the words that you said Tears filled my eyes As we said our last goodbyes This sad scene replays Of you walking away My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust Time and again, She repeats let's be friends I smile and say yes Another truth bends, I must confess I try to let go, but I know We'll never end 'til we're dust We lied to each other again But I wish I could trust My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust God help me please, on my knees Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust How could this be happening to me I'm lying when I say "Trust me" I can't believe this is true Trust hurts Why does trust equal suffering Absolutely nothing we trust 2. Almost Honest I lied just a little When I said I need you You stretched the truth

When you said that you knew Just can't believe it There's nothing to say I was almost honest, almost Living alone, can't stand this place It's four in the morning and I still see your face I was nearly pure When I said I loved you You were semi-sincere You said I'd bleed for you We were kind of candid Now you're gone away You were almost honest, almost Living alone, falling from grace I want to alone but there's just empty space I can't face tomorrow, now you're not coming back Walked off in the night and just left me the tracks I question your call by the I know I should hang up but It happened that night when Don't ask who's to blame, I Almost, almost honest Almost, I was almost honest 3. Use The Man I heard somebody fixed today There was no last goodbyes to say His will to live ran out I heard somebody turned to dust Looking back at what he left A list of plans and photographs Songs that never will be sung These are the things he don't get done I've I've They I've seen the man use the seen them crawl from fight a war but it's seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use the man the cradle to the gutter on their hands fatal, it's so hard to understand needle, seen the needle use the man tone of your voice I don't have a choice you told me to go don't know

Just one shot to say goodbye One last taste to mourn and cry Scores and shoots, the lights go dim Just one shot to do him in He hangs his head and wonders why Why the monkey only lies But pay the pauper, he did choose He hung his head inside the noose I've seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use the man

I've seen them crawl from the cradle to the gutter on their hands They fight a war but it's fatal, it's so hard to understand I've seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use the man Cryptic writing on the wall, the beginning of the end I've seen myself use the needle, seen the needle in my hand 4. Mastermind Anonymous existence, rendered useless to mankind Destroy the logic volume in the confines of the mind Enmassed and purposeless, marching in a perfect line Neo-neuro torture, mental meltdown, a heinous crime Mastermind, I tell you what to think I tell you what you need I tell you what to feel Invade the core of souls to wipe the lives away Design vacant beings, welcome the inhuman race Encrypted horror codes, directive psyche overwrite Processing brains to pabulum, delete and format living drives I tell you what's real Hail to the power age, lest the viral hour comes Raise the flag of voltage, bow to circuitry unknown Kneel before the processor, lords of static laugh Electrons in submission, you must know who I am I I I I tell you what to think didn't care what you thought tell you what to get don't care what you got

I'll Get Even I'm lonely and abandoned Washed up, left for dead I'm lost inside the desert Of every word you said Like a nuclear reactor Or TNT I'm thinking about the times When you lied to me All the innuendo Caught up on your hook I was just a name In your little black book Ah, I'll get even with you I'm bitter and I'm I haven't slept in I'm lonely and I'm I can't make it go twisted days angry away

I'm like a bomb that's ticking I got voices in my head I got a doll with needles in Wishing you were dead I'll get you back somehow That's what I'm gonna do I'll get you back somehow Your nightmare coming true Ah, I'll get even with you Ah, that's what I'm gonna do Gonna get even with you You better look behind you 'Cause there I'm gonna be I'll be standing in the shadows With who I used to be He's slightly schizophrenic Me and me and me and me agree

That you are gonna pay For what you did to me Ah, I'll get even with you Gonna get even with you Ah, that's what I'm gonna do I'm gonna do Ah, I'll get even with you 7. Sin He had an unfamiliar face Complete life in disarray A simple man, power drunk No worries of living, no more anything Deep inside I've seen it rise Actions progress to no end Mirror, mirror please look inside Do you see the reasons that we sin Not one to be forgot Spoiled rotten, so they say Once burned, forever marked Hurt by just a few but so many have to pay Pressure coming down Down on me, gonna break Broken fingernails Digging in, scratch my face Nervous, like a cat Gonna jump through my skin Shadows on the wall Stretching out, grope for me Reasons, deep in me Let me be Let me bleed Set me free The reasons that we sin 8. A Secret Place There's a secret place I like to go Everyone is there but their face don't show If you get inside you can't get out There's no coming back, I hear them shout Welcome to my hide away, my secret place How I arrived I can't explain You're welcome to, if you want to stay But everyone just runs away Let me in, get me out Can't do more than twist and shout

Lost my soul without a trace Found it again in my secret place In disgrace I hide from those that try to find me Scary things that's right behind me I lost myself, I must confess I can't explain how I got this mess 9. Have Cool, Will Travel Mamas pack their lunches, kiddies back their guns Wishing it will go away, but nothing's getting done A shot heard 'round the world, when a mother's baby dies We the people, point our fingers, blame and wonder why Face it and fight or turn high tail and run 'Til it comes back again just like the rising sun Say they do all they can, it's just another lie The answer's plain to see, nobody wants to try There's no recess and no rules in the school of life If you listen very closely you'll see what it's like Have cool, will travel Tell myself it ain't true, they just cannot see Grown up or sewn up, the medicine's worse than the disease I have cool, will travel Here we go 10. She-Wolf The mother of all that is evil Her lips are poisonous venom Wicked temptress knows how to please The priestess roars, "Get down on your knees" The rite of the praying mantis Kiss the bones of the enchantress Spellbound searching through the night A howling man surrenders the fight One look in her lusting eyes Savage fear in you will rise Teeth of terror sinking in The bite of the she-wolf My desires of flesh obey me The lioness will enslave me Another heart beat than my own The sound of claws on cobblestone, I'm stoned Beware what stalks you in the night Beware the she-wolf and her bite Her mystic lips tell only lies Her hidden will to kill in disguise

11. Vortex Internal combustion Multiple personalities Terror inside of me A mask of silent agony Curse the falling rain The vortex of pain As medieval as Merlin A pact for power was made Lucifer in transition It's time the price was paid Scorching the domain The vortex of pain A telestic message Written in torment Howl our dirges Like the horns of Jericho Distorted faces Writhing in rage Walls of purgatory Tumble down Endless death The jewels of a crown 12.

Trust [Dave Mustaine/Marty Friedman] [Originally appeared on the album CRYPTIC WRITINGS] Lost in a dream Nothing is what it seems Searching my head For the words that you said Tears filled my eyes As we said our last goodbyes This sad scene replays Of you walking away My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much tone of your voice I don't have a choice you told me to go don't know

That in nothing we trust Time and again, She repeats let's be friends I smile and say yes Another truth bends, I must confess I try to let go, but I know We'll never end 'til we're dust We lied to each other again But I wish I could trust My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust God help me please, on my knees Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust How could this be happening to me I'm lying when I say "Trust me" I can't believe this is true Trust hurts Why does trust equal suffering Absolutely nothing we trust 7. À Tout Le Monde [Music & Lyrics by Mustaine] [Originally appeared on the album YOUTHANASIA] Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game The more seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes When I found out how little I accomplished All my plans denied So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all À tout le monde [To all the world] À tous mes amis [To all my friends] Je vous aime [I love you] Je dois partir [I have to leave] These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free

If my heart was I know it would And my memories There's nothing

still alive surely break left with you more to say

Moving on is a simple thing What it leaves behind is hard You know the sleeping feel no more pain And the living are scarred These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free 8. Train Of Consequences [Music & Lyrics by Mustaine] [Originally appeared on the album YOUTHANASIA] I'm doing you a favor As I'm taking all your money I guess I should feel sorry But I don't even trust me There's bad news creeping up And you feel a sudden chill How do you do? My name is Trouble I'm coming in for the kill... And you know I will Set the ball a-rolling I'll be clicking off the miles On the train of consequences My boxcar life o' style My thinking is derailed I'm tied up to the tracks The train of consequences There ain't no turning back No horse ever ran as fast As the money that you bet I'm blowing on my cards And play them to my chest Life's fabric is corrupt Shot through with corroded thread As for me I hocked my brains Packed my bags and headed west 9.

Anxiety's attacking me And my air is getting thin Feeling claustrophobic Like the walls are closing in Blood stains on my hands and I don't know where I've been Once you committed me Now you've acquitted me Claiming validity

Holy Wars... The Punishment Due [Dave Mustaine] [Originally appeared on the album RUST IN PEACE] Brother will kill brother Spilling blood across the land Killing for religion Something I don't understand Fools like me, who cross the sea And come to foreign lands Ask the sheep, for their beliefs Do you kill on God's command? A country that's divided Surely will not stand My past erased, no more disgrace No foolish naive stand The end is near, it's crystal clear Part of the master plan Don't look now to Israel It might be your homelands Holy wars Upon my podium, as the Know it all scholar Down in my seat of judgement Gavel's bang, uphold the law Up on my soapbox, a leader Out to change the world Down in my pulpit as the holier Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God ...The Punishment Due Wage the war on organized crime Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks Behind the lines Some people risk to employ me Some people live to destroy me Either way they die They killed my wife, and my baby With hopes to enslave me

First mistake... last mistake! Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants Next mistake... no more mistakes! Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't Thinkin' it Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away I know what I said, now I must scream of the overdose And the lack of mercy killings 13. In My Darkest Hour [Dave Mustaine/David Ellefson] [Originally appeared on the album SO FAR SO GOOD...SO WHAT?] In my hour of need ha you're not there and though I reached out for you wouldn't lend a hand. Through the darkest hour grace did not shine on me It feels so cold, very cold no one cares for me. Did you ever think I get lonely did you ever think that I needed love did you ever think to stop thinking you're the only one that I'm thinking of. You'll never know how hard I tried to find my space and satisfy you too. Things will be better when I'm dead and gone don't try to understand, knowing you I'm probably wrong. But oh how I lived my life for you still you'd turn away now as I die for you my flesh still crawls as I breathe your name all these years I thought I was wrong now I know it was you raise you head, raise your face your eyes tell me who you think you are, who? I walk, I walk alone into the promised land. There's a better place for me but it's far, far away everlasting life for me in a perfect world but I gotta die first, please god send me on my way.

Time has a way of taking time Loneliness is not only felt be fools Alone I call to ease the pain Yearning to be held by you, Alone so alone, I'm lost Consumed by the pain the pain, the pain, the pain. Won't you hold me again you just laughed, ha ha, bitch my whole life is work built on the past but the time has come when all things shall pass this good thing passed away. In my darkest hour 14. Peace Sells [Dave Mustaine] [Originally appeared on the album PEACE SELLS... BUT WHO'S BUYING?] What do you mean, "I don't believe in God"? I talk to him every day. What do you mean, "I don't support your system"? I go to court when I have to. What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"? I got nothing better to do And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"? Why do you think I'm broke? Huh? [Chorus] If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line. But, it better work this time. What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"? I didn't know you had any feelings. What do you mean, "I ain't kind"? I'm just not your kind. What do you mean, "I couldn't be president, of the United States of America"? Tell me something, it's still "We the people", right? [Chorus (repeat)] If there's a new way I'll be the first in line, But, it better work this time. Can you put a price on peace? Peace, Peace sells..., Peace, Peace sells..., Peace sells..., but who's buying? Peace sells..., but who's buying? Peace sells..., but who's buying? Peace sells..., but who's buying?

Burning Bridges [Dave Mustaine] You give up on yourself Somehow you got betrayed agin Thin ice and luck runs out Who will you blame it on this time?

Promises [Dave Mustaine / Al Pitrelli] Two hearts that shouldn't Talk to each other become close In a town much like a prison cell People speak our names On the street in hushed tones Oh the stories they'd tell If anyone would listen You come from a town where People don't bother saying hello Unless somebody's born or dies And I come from a place where they Drag your hopes through the mud Because their own dreams are all dying And The The But when we walk down the street wind sings our name in rebel songs sounds of the night should make us anxious it's much to late when the fear is gone

I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you Where we can be together, I promise you I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you I promise, I promise There's so many fighting To get past the Pearly Gates But nobody ever wants to die or get saved Their intentions aren't that good And I can smell the asphalt That's their personal road to hell being paved And when we walk down the street The wind sings our name in rebel songs But it's much to late when the fear is gone I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you Where we can be together, I promise you I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you I promise, I promise [Solo - Pitrelli / Solo - Mustaine]

Recipe For Hate... Warhorse [Dave Mustaine] Each day my shortcomings pick my pockets My faults were letters carved in stone As meaningful to you as words written in water I'm left to walk this world alone [Fill solos - Mustaine] In a broken mold they made me The black sheep of the family Worth less than zero my opinion And room temperature IQ I did something, now I'm nothing Always wrong with this or that Poisoned with fear watch it twist My measly brain mad [Solo - Pitrelli] Talk about me when my bac is turned Next time we meet it will be to late The memory burned in my ears of what you said And now I've got a recipe for hate. Taste it [Fill solos - Mustaine] Dark clouds on the horizon Make it hard to breathe A walking mistake but every time I run away, I just come back for more The choice is clear I can quit And fall on my sword or light a fire To see who runs or stays And plays the confidence game [Solo - Pitrelli] ...Warhorse I'm feeling quite invisible I feel just like thin air That nobody wants me [Solo - Mustaine] I see the earth below me

I watch it spinning there Does someone, somewhere Out there hear me? [Solo - Pitrelli] Sentenced to walk in Purgatory My life is running down I can't believe what they've done to me [Solo - Mustaine] I'm left riding a Warhorse A man without a country [Solos - Mustaine, Pitrelli, Mustaine, Pitrelli] 8. Losing My Senses [Dave Mustaine] One man speaking the truth No one likes when it fits So we tell soothing lies And betray our own lips The uncivilized world And its people decay Once sweet breeze is defiled Sucking our breath away [Fill Solos - Mustaine] Yesterday's answers has nothing to do With today's questions Life can only be understood in reverse But must be lived forwards. I'm losing my senses, I'm losing my senses [Fill Solos - Mustaine] We watch as the living all die Contemplating if we should Ever open our eyes If all that we touch Keeps turning to sand We will cease to exist Till the last living man [Fill Solos - Mustaine] Yesterday's answers has nothing to do With today's questions Life can only be understood in reverse

But must be lived forward. Life can only be understood in reverse But must be lived forward. I'm losing my senses [Fill Solos - Mustaine / Solo - Pitrelli] Yesterday's answers has nothing to do With today's questions Life can But must Life can But must only be understood in reverse be lived forwards. only be understood in reverse be lived forwards.

Dread And The Fugitive Mind [Dave Mustaine] Let me introduce myself I'm a social disease I've come for your wealth leave you on your knees No time for feeling sorry, I got here on my own I won't ask for mercy, I choose to walk alone What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too If you shake my hand better count your fingers What if I do get caught? What if there is no judgment? If I'm right I lose nothing, if you're right I lose it all I ought to get caught because I'm doing something wicked I'm guilty haunted by my fear and the only consequences Are Dread and the Fugitive Mind You built walls to protect you so no one will infect you Pursued by those out there that vanish in thin air Come a long way to find what you really left behind You don't know when the end is but it's coming fast What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too If you shake my hand better count your fingers What if I do get caught? What if there is no judgment? If I'm right I lose nothing, if you're right I lose it all I ought to get caught because I'm doing something wicked I'm guilty haunted by my fear and the only consequences Are Dread and the Fugitive Mind [Solos - Mustaine, Pitrelli] 10. Silent Scorn [Dave Mustaine]

[Solo - Mustaine] [Trumpet - Bob Findley] 11. Return To Hangar [Dave Mustaine] Welcome to an empty fortress A mighty wreck that once was proud Ate alive by oxidation Abandoned by a crew of cowards Navigation systems failed Computers crashed and they all fall down Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much [Solo - Pitrelli] All the guilty paid the price Suspended by their broken necks No one survived to tell the story When foreign life forms resurrect And military intelligence is Still two words that can't make sense Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much [Solos - Pitrelli, Mustaine] [Solos - Pitrelli, Mustaine, Pitrelli, Mustaine] 12. When [Dave Mustaine] No hears a word I say And my prayers are never answered But you'll never see the pain inside of me Stabbing me over and over and over I trusted you and I loved you And you spit back in my face How could you do this to me? When will you stop trying to hurt me? I've walked a minefield for you A career in hell with you I have made it through the things Others would surely die just watching And the oath I take on this day Is to know that you will be repaid One day the the sun will die and the night will crawl Until then, until I see your world implode I wish you death and suffering Misery to spare Time to release your pain

Face the last enemy I am the last thing you will know The last thing you will see I see your death surrounding me I know you, yes I do I know you [Fill Solos - Mustaine] When no words are spoken and please are ignored Your tears go unnoticed, will you say enough? When prayers are unanswered and your calls are unheard The pain cuts right through you, have you seen enough? It all seems so deceitful and the verdict is lies A black cloud of indecision compromised your life When When Your Will judgement has failed you your own heart's impaled you wandering mind has destroyed you you ever know when?

When you give everything and the feeling is gone All the giving is fake, did you fake enough? When you take everything and you stay too long When there's nothing left, did you take enough? It all seems so deceitful and the verdict is lies A black cloud of indecision compromised your life When When Your Will judgement has failed you your own heart's impaled you wandering mind has destroyed you you ever know when?

[Solo - Mustaine] "The System Has Failed" (2004) 1. Blackmail The Universe This is breaking news It appears air force one was shot down Somewhere over the Middle East this morning By a sleeper cell of rouge terrorists, firing a stinger missile The pilot and all passengers are unaccounted for The presidents whereabouts are presently unknown And he is presumed missing The vice president, secretary of state And principles of the military are assembling Our nation stands at DEFCON 3 The greatest crisis, will someone come for me? I "red, white and blew it." Unleashed revenge, my body is detained How could anybody do this? Betrayal, I peel away the days Medals are useless. Uncle Sam's forgotten me

I'm not important no one will ever come I'll never be fund, god get me out of this hell. Nuclear battlefields energised Cold wars are heating up again The tensions mounting People lift up your fists in revenge The stage is set Who will be the first to blink? We can go to war Remember that "Vietnam thing" Peace at any price With a gun to your head, bang, bang Weakness runs in your family What runs in mine is death [Solo - Poland] This is your 5-minute warning Burn all your classified documents And if cooler heads don't prevail First strike from a political dead man Appeasement only makes the aggressor more aggressive He understands only one language - action And he respects only one word - force No sign of them stopping, no time for back channel communiques We need all the help we can get, air strikes and invasions! Retaliate. I say! The will of good men can not counter the terrible strain of war [Solo - Poland] [Solo - Mustaine] Blackmail the universe with the greatest of calamities Awaken those sleeping giants in the dust of the ground With their skin destroyed, unjust to innocence Lawful possessor of the worlds last 24 hours [Solo - Mustaine] Terror and ugliness reveal what death really means And in hatred you see men as they really are If chosen over heaven, earth will have been for them All along, only another region of hell. 2.

Kick the chair, the rope is tight Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out Friend or foe, I gotta hang 'em dead Or they'll come back around Kick it! The court's wrong when it keeps track Of victories and defeats The press that never rests just waits For somebody's soul they can eat Justice means nothing today Now that the jury's for sale Guilty or not, the verdict's a lie You're going to jail The system has failed! Kick the chair, the rope is tight Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out Friend or foe, ya gotta hang 'em dead Or they'll come back [Solo [Solo [Solo [Solo Mustaine (2:21)] Mustaine (2:51)] Mustaine (3:04)] Poland (3:20)]

The Scorpion My life, is everything That feeds my thirst, that causes sin My wants, are all I care No shame and guilt, there's nothing there Look deep, into my face I sell deceit, without a trace Fear not, what I can do Unless you, want it done to you, oh-ohhh!

Tears In A Vial This may seem all too confusing How I could walk away from something so rare But you see it got too demanding, yeah And I just didn't care, I just didn't care, if I cared, if I cared Lately, I've been left wanting, but not wanting you Attraction that once was is no longer there, ooh And it sucks to be taken for granted When the veil is drawn so there is only air I had to walk away Give up something I love For what I loved even more And save my tears for you [Solo - Mustaine] Everything has lost its meaning; I had to let it go To find myself, myself, and start something new, brand new Forced to look deep in the mirror, face who I really am Now it's just me, 'cause I can't afford you I had to walk away promise not to sting hear and not mean anything shoot my venom in I am a scorpion, ohhh!

Give up something I love For what I loved even more And save my tears for you I gave up something I love For what I loved even more And save my tears for you In a vial and walked away [Solo - Mustaine] [Solo - Poland] You were so beautiful to look upon I could see the light in your smile Your eyes were the windows into your soul Your body was heavenly just like the sky [Solo - Mustaine] Until all your good looks betrayed you, which wasn't much Counted on your counterfeit smiles for too long Your eyes are empty windows, broken The body may be here but the soul is gone I saved my tears in a vial From everything wicked that you did, that you said To send away, buried with your love So many tears in a vial, now that you're gone, and now that you're dead 6. I Know Jack [Solo - Mustaine] I served with jack Kennedy I knew jack Kennedy Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine Senator you're no jack Kennedy 7. Back In The Day Where were you when it happened? Where could you be found? Were you at the front of the stage? Or in the underground? From SF out to Old Bridge New York back to LA The world of metal changed forever Back in the day Well that was back in the day And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand Live to die and die to play

Every day and place Leave a path of metal Across the world from stage to stage Well that was back in the day And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand [Solo - Poland] In denim and leather We were all part of one force Knocked rock and roll on its ass And put metal on the course Higher [Solo - Poland] Higher [Solo - Mustaine] Higher [Solo - Poland] Higher [Solo - Mustaine] Back in the day [Solo - Mustaine] You weren't there [Solo - Mustaine] It doesn't matter [Solo - Mustaine] Because you wouldn't understand This is our way of life A life that was born free To follow orders how to live Was never meant to be Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh Peals of thunder, sheets of lightning The power hits the stage The music was exciting The mania raged Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

We all had the fever Our ears started to ring Feeding this wildfire Consuming everything Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh Metals king back then And still to this day Others imitate or challenge But it never goes away Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh 8. Something That I'm Not Your mind tells you You're drifting and To lose what little Afraid you can't do that you've lost your confidence ya don't believe in anyone you have left to be proud of this again, ah!

You said that nothing can come in-between us The way of getting things we wanted done Then enissophobia held you under its influence Until you compromised your style [Solo - Mustaine] Everything about you has been one big charade What will you do now the wells run dry? Cry? To sell out all your friends and stab them in the back It's something that you are; something that I'm not When you forced me into doing what you love Mark my words no one loves you very much, yeah mark em And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me I couldn't help but end just hating you, hmm! Being a fraud can only last so long, you should know Till what ya sensed as a child returns, you little baby To choke out the voice that told ya "money and fame" Would fill the crater that you dug for yourself [Solo - Mustaine] Unlike you I'm no vision to myself, lest you forget You didn't ever make metal, buddy; metal made you To crush and run over everyone along the way It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not A stranger to yourself, ha! Ya pissed me off again I won't be driven by your needs anymore What you'd become to do or be is clear to see for me It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not [Solo - Mustaine] it makes me sick to hear you say you "love me" I know you only love what I can do for you

If you were the one that was leading the charge Would you notice if I missed a day or two? But that's impossible! We all laughed at the parodies that you'd become Now your pain slowly paid back has begun So, accept my resignation, or in your words "betrayal" Before it gets much worse, end this self-sabotage [Solo - Mustaine] Something I'm not, something that you are, something that I'm not [Solo - Mustaine] Something I'm not, something that you are, something that I'm not Something that you are, something that I'm not, yet 9. Truth Be Told This is the first tale of death in the world When Cain struck down Abel, a family broken Since then mankind's dominated his own kind To insult and injure, there's no such thing as peace Till dead do us part, till the last Truth be told Truth be told Truth be told Truth be told All around sin lies at the doorway hells open for business now the soil cries out for revenge and death is upon the ground

The battle ain't over without spoils of war Just cause it is written doesn't make it so When you dance with the devil wait till the songs over I ask myself, "How bad do I want you to live?" My anger is near, till the last Truth be told Truth be told Truth be told Truth be told All around sin lies at the doorway hells open for business now the soil cries out for revenge and death is upon the ground

[Solo - Mustaine] [Solo - Mustaine] Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard Still you just go on your way Head in the sand, ignoring the rain Just like the flood in Noah's day In his day [Solo - Mustaine] Can't punish those for ruining the earth It's suicide to some degree Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin

There will be no peace, never for you and me [Solo - Mustaine] Before al qaeda and bin ladin Long before Hitler and Hussein Ever since the first murder was committed The verdicts always been the same Been the same, wrong! [Solo - Mustaine] The cursed future just repeats the past There's hell to pay and stones to cast So, there will be no peace, never peace Till the last truth be told by you and me [Solo - Mustaine] 10. Of Mice And Men The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men Back when I was just seventeen I thought that I knew everything I could make it in this scene To be a rising star that only gleamed But all the answers disagreed With the questions held for me I was legal now at twenty-one I knew the way the world should run My God, just look what I had done Simply drunk and having fun Looked for friends, but I found none All alone at twenty-one [Solo - Poland] The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men At twenty-five I was surprised That I was even half-alive Somehow I managed to survive I felt my body doing time And in my back a hundred knives

From my friends at twenty-five And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell I'd buy your life, if you would sell A year or two if less compelled So live your life and live it well There's not much left of me to tell I just got back up each time I fell [Solo - Poland] The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men [Solo - fills Poland] [Solo - Mustaine] The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men The fire burns on and on That drives me on 'til all is gone Except the simple plans Of mice and men [Solo - fills Poland] 11. Shadow Of Deth Auxilium meum a domino The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want He maketh me to lie down in green pastures He leadeth me beside the still waters He restoreth my soul He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil: for thou art with me Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever [Solo - Mustaine] 12. My Kingdom Come The flag that I once planted as a king I abandoned And now I reclaim this banner by god, my sword, and my name In a truce sealed by blood within this metal skin and all that I own Blood, bone, and courage in my veins, and the heart that pumps it Drink from the chalice and be reborn And the land with me, it will change and transform A fighting, am sworn to the quest it is doom of man that they forget I have awoken the dragon and all around me the mist of his breath God and evil, there never is one without the other, his brother Always there where I least expect it, it will burn me to cinders The futures taken root in the present sun Don't look into my heart into my heart, least of all your own [Solo - Poland] No man who is false can win in combat against the truth When he lies he murders some part of the world, We must find out what was lost Hearth and home, wife and child were not for me, I was not yet done I never knew how empty my soul was until it was refilled Mad distemper strikes both beggars and kings The necromancer's hard teachings of war and quest I am given the right to bear arms and power to meet justice I have lived through others for far to long, And carried my guilt, my causes, my sins I hope in the hereafter when I owe no more to the future That I can be just a man "United Abominations" (2007) 1. Sleepwalker [Music & Lyric Dave Mustaine] I should be calling collect from jail For the things I commit each night in my head Like last night in my sleep I got to snuff you But then I woke up again, safe in my little bed No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life I get to force your untimely disappearance Each night in my dreams, when I'm fast asleep

United Abominations [Music and Lyrics Dave Mustaine] Within striking distance from Ground Zero sits a smoldering international cauldron, the United "Abominations" as it were. Born to prevent wars, it froze in the face of disaster and stood silent while terrorization to hostage of the world In a mire of hypocrisy, the U.N. ignores sex crimes by its "blue helmets", and enables terrorism; so in the end it's failed and the U.N. is where our so-called friends get to stab us in the back and we pay 22% of their tab to host our enemies here at home. Ambassadors from countries enjoy otherwise known as a catastrophe, enjoy Diplomatic immunity living in Manhattan, while their children are turned into prostitutes It's a complete and utter disgrace, a blot on the face of humanity, and they get away with it. Poverty in their kitchens Held hostage by oil-for-food Yet their own plates are full off the fat of their lands There's no blood on their hands, right Kojo? They promised to tell the truth Without leaving a fingerprint, They will lose the U.N. one way or another The victim, I fear will be us, sisters and brothers The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un" Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun The threat is real, the Locust King has come Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done It's payback time at the United Abominations A grave and gathering danger The decision to attack Based on secret intelligence it'll take years I fear to undo the failings in Iraq, Iran, and Korea You may bury the bodies But you can't bury the crimes only Fools stand up and really lay down their arms No, not me, not when Death lasts forever The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un" Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone

Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun The threat is real, the Locust King has come Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done It's payback time at the United Abominations "The U.N. writes resolution after resolution and has become irrelevant through inaction and totalitarian paralysis," "Order, Order!!!" "Ha! There is no such thing as order" "Larry, it's true, reports confirm today that the United Nations has officially closed its doors forever," "Well, I just don't see what all the fuss is, because they don't do anything anyway, do they?" The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un" Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun The threat is real, the Locust King has come Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done It's payback time at the United Abominations NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N. The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N. Saddam Hussein violated 17 U.N. resolutions; The U.N. was asked to join the war in Iraq. The U.S. invaded, Ha! there was no U.N. Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N. Iran funds Hamas, and attacked the U.S. in the seventies, there was no stinking U.N. Facing War without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N. 5. Gears Of War Ethnic cleansing with no defending These acts of genocide A fatal ending with no surrendering To cover up the crimes and lie Smart bombs, precision guided armament A more sophisticated way to end up dead Still we search and invent such intelligent weapons That kill each other like the Gears of War Hoo-rah!!! If you ride with thieves, then you die with thieves Cross my heart and hope that you die, that you die! When the smoke has cleared, the devil's in the mirror And you see his warheads paint the sky, now you die! Smart bombs, precision guided armament A more sophisticated way to end up dead Still we search and invent such intelligent weapons That kill each other like the Gears of War Hoo-rah!!! 6. Blessed Are The Dead

A great sign appeared Under the stars and the moon Sounds of galloping horses On clouds of lightning and thunder A dark gathering storm To scorch the earth for many generations A nuclear winter Worse than any cold or holy war A white horse on the clouds of death A red warhorse to end all wars A pale horse and pestilence led by a Black horse with famine and scales The doctrine of hatred Nation will rise against nation Wash me in blood and let me be The firstborn of the dead A crowned rider with arrows and bow A red rider with a great firey sword Flames come from the one called death Horror and apocalypse follows (RIDE!) Won't you four horsemen ride again Before this kingdom is blown to kingdom come I hold fast to what I believe Till I see my name in stone Blessed are the dead A white horse on the clouds of death A red warhorse to end all wars A pale horse and pestilence led by a Black horse with famine and scales The synagogue of Nation will rise Wash me in blood The firstborn of Satan against nation and let me be the dead

A crowned rider with arrows and bow A red rider with a great firey sword Flames come from the one called death Horror and apocalypse follows (RIDE!) Won't you four horsemen ride again Before this kingdom is blown to kingdom come I hold fast to what I believe Till I see my name in stone Blessed are the dead 7. Play For Blood

Anybody searching for action Anything to fill the emptiness inside Any place that the streets are empty Any takers wanna pour out their lives With fire and lightning shooting from my hand And desolation written across my eyes My itchy finger on the hairpin trigger My tempers hot and my patience's taken flight Inside the abattoir The cover charge is somebody's gotta die Now, I hear you screaming out for mercy Last man that's standing wins the fight Too late, I see your end zero in on you Even mortal enemies, they can't deny Let me help you up again The wings of god surround me I live to play because I know I'll never die If I win again, I'm still the champion And if you win, ha, that's just impossible I don't play for keeps; I don't play for your soul I don't play to win; I don't play for it all I play for blood I I I I I don't play for keeps, I play for blood don't play for your soul, I play for blood don't play to win, I play for blood don't play for it all, I play for blood play for blood

8. A Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free) [feat. Cristina Scabbia] Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game The more seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes When I found out how little I accomplished All my plans denied So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all A tout le monde (To all the world) A tout mes amis (To all my friends) Je vous aime (I love you) Je dois partir (I have to leave) These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free

If my heart was I know it would And my memories There's nothing

Moving on is a simple thing What it leaves behind is hard You know the sleeping feel no more pain And the living are scarred A tout le monde (To all the world) A tout mes amis (To all my friends) Je vous aime (I love you) Je dois partir (I have to leave) These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile, smile when you think about me My body's gone that's all A tout le monde (To all the world) A tout mes amis (To all my friends) Je vous aime (I love you) Je dois partir (I have to leave) These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free [2x] These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free 9. Amerikhastan Recruiting the ill-fated for "The War" A legion of uneducated, bankrupt souls With a lust for revenge, answering the call From New Yorqatar to Califarabia Desperation provides fertile ground for religious extremism This glorious brainwashing where prejudice lies Like a crouching tiger Tormenting peasants till they erect an army Under everyone's nose In the end propaganda destroys their DNA, God help them [Solo - Drover] [Solo - Mustaine] All that they envisioned of what things would come to be Turned into a pink mist when they blew to smithereens We are just a war away from Amerikhastan When God versus God;the undoing of man

Promising a vapor, in the end they become one [Solo - Drover] No rules of engagement, this enemy hides Amongst women and children And to beat violence, you must ignore the focus groups You must send in the Mossad, turn of the BBC, CNN And don't look back Rest assured there'll be no more Middle Eastern crisis, hell! There'll be no more Middle East! These are your people Liberty Pull up your dress today And tattooed is "property of The USA A subsidiary of Halliburton" Surprise?! But a roaring lion is about to be on earth Hey, Jihad Joe? Guess what? We're coming to get you! [Solo - Drover] [Solo - Mustaine] All that you envisioned of what things will come to be Turns into a death knell when you look behind the scenes We are just a war away from Amerikhastan When God versus God, the undoing of man [Solo [Solo [Solo [Solo Drover] Mustaine] Drover] Mustaine]

10. You're Dead When someone becomes nothing to anyone Wilts feelings have died Anyone would know it They set out stick and stones They say they crossed my bones I say I don’t get mad I get even before they do. Spoils go to the victor I’m dead on time Your time is going to come One day I’ll dance on Even if you’re buried Till then till when I I’ll tell them you’re your graves at sea exact my revenge dead to me

We’re all just trying to hold on to anything You’d think they’d know that’s what we’re trying to do These wounds are invisible

Underneath the dirt I still see the scars But then when things got bad we spread our wings and fly away You’ll take all your riches in the back of a hearse Your time is going to come One day I’ll dance on Even if you’re buried Till then till when I I’ll tell them you’re your graves at sea exact my revenge dead to me

One day I’ll dance on your grave Even if you’re buried at sea Till then till when I exact my revenge One day I’ll dance on Even if you’re buried Till then till when I I’ll tell them you’re 11. Burnt Ice [Solo - Mustaine] He said he'd try just a little bit [Solo - Mustaine] He didn't want to end up like them [Solo - Drover] And now he blames the voices of a toothless wonder [Solo - Mustaine] Pounding on the door to make the next score [Solo - Drover] Anything for a hit, any sin to pay for it For that next bowl, he'd sell his soul Spiral to destruction, it's too late to break the spell He wants the ride to stop on the freight train straight to hell Without the truth he'll never find in a dungeon of his lies His cause of death... high speed on burnt ice [Solo - Mustaine] Always looking at the ground, a broken, beaten man Memories of his family are calling after him He can hardly think, hardly walk Phone keeps ringing, he can't talk With just one hit the pain would go away But he's dead if he does your graves at sea exact my revenge dead to me

[Solo - Drover] [Solo - Mustaine] [Solo - Drover] Shadow people follow him everywhere he goes Looking over his shoulder, the paranoia grows [Solo - Mustaine] 12. Out On The Tiles [Bonus track for Japanese release] [Led Zeppelin cover, originally from the album "Led Zeppelin III" composed by Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Bonham. Copyright to SuperHype Music Inc., ASCAP, 1970.] As I walk down the highway, all I do is sing this song And a train that's passing my way helps the rhythm move along There is no doubt about the words, they're clear The voice is strong, it's oh-so strong I am just a simple guy, I live from day to day A ray of sunshine melts my frown and blows my blues away There's nothing more that I can say, but on a day like today I pass the time away and walk a quiet mile with you All All All All I need from you, is all your you gotta give to me, is all I need from you, is all your you gotta give to me, is all love your love love your love

I'm so glad I'm living, gonna tell the world that I am I got me a fine woman and she says that I'm her man One thing that I know for sure, gonna give her all the loving like nobody can Standing in the noonday sun, trying to flag a ride People go and people come, see my rider right by my side It's a total disgrace that they set the pace, it must be a race And the best thing I can do is run All All All All I need from you, is all your you gotta give to me, is all I need from you, is all your you gotta give to me, is all love your love love your love

13. Black Swan [special edition track] [composed by Dave Mustaine and Megadeth] I thought at this hour, any pleasure, could never really be a sin in vain One hundred and one shots of opportunity, I'd gladly take them all again and again, and again

My angel's left me, sorrows are my own Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me I promised on my soul, not to get carried away It always starts out psychedelic, and then it turns to black My head starts swaying, I forgot what it was that I was saying I don't know where I am, and I'll never, never make it back I sealed my fate, and I paid my debt I fell from grace with deep regret My angel's left me, sorrows are my own And now I'm here, with the Devil on my own Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me My angel's left me, sorrows are my own Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own, on my own Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me There's nothing left to see, There's nothing left of me 14.

2. Blackmail The Universe This is breaking news It appears that Air Force One was shot down Somewhere over the Middle East this morning By a sleeper cell of rogue terrorists firing a Stinger Missile The Pilot and all passengers are unaccounted for The President's whereabouts are presently unknown and he is presumed missing The Vice President, Secretary of State, and principals of the military are assembling Our nation stands at DEFCON 3

The greatest crisis, will someone come for me? I "red, white and blew it" Unleashed revenge, my body is detained How could anybody do this? Betrayal, I peel away the days Medals are useless, Uncle Sam's forgotten me I'm not important, no one will ever come I'll never be found, God get me out of this hell Nuclear battlefields energized Cold wars are heating up again The tensions mounting People lift up your fists in revenge The stage is set Who will be the first to blink? We can't go to war Remember that "Vietnam thing" Peace at any price With a gun to your head, bang, bang Weakness runs in your family What runs in mine is death This is your 5 minute warning Burn all of your classified documents And if cooler heads don't prevail First strike from a political dead man Appeasement only makes the aggressor more aggressive He understands only one language - action And he respects only one word - force No sign of them stopping, no time for back channel communiques We need all the help we can get, air strikes and invasions, retaliate, I say! The will of good men can not counter the terrible strain of war Blackmail the universe with the greatest of calamities Awaken those sleeping giants in the dust of the ground With their skin destroyed, unjust to innocence Lawful possessor of the world's last 24 hours Terror and ugliness reveal what death really means And in hatred you see men as they really are If chosen over heaven, Earth will have been for them All along, only another region of hell 3. Set The World Afire Red flash, clouds choking out the morning sky They said it'd never come, we knew it was a lie All forms of life die now, humans all succumb Time to kiss your ass goodbye, the end has just begun Distorted figures walk the street, it's 1999 Weeds once underneath your feet have grown to vines

Bodies melted like a candle, a land without a face No time to change your fate, no time left, it's too late The arsenal of Megadeth can't be rid they said And if it comes the living will envy the dead Racing for power and all come in last No winning first stone cast This falsehood worldly peace It's treaties will soon cease No one will be left to prove that humans existed Maybe soon the children will be born open fisted We all live on one planet it will all go up in smoke Too bad they couldn't see this lethal energy And now the final scene, a global darkening Dig deep the piles of rubble and ruins Towering overhead both far and wide There's unknown tools of World War III Einstein said "We'll use rocks on the other side" No survivors! Set the world afire! No survivors, set the world afire! 4. Skin Of My Teeth I had wrists donning slits, flowing constantly My broken body in a wreck: I'm wrapped around a tree A crosswalk hit and run - the finish line for me People clutter in the gutter, take a look and see No escaping pain, you belong to me Clinging on the life by the skin of my teeth My blood flows through the streets, deluge from the wounds Empty jar of sleeping pill on the dresser in my room My wet brain neighbor cranes, his neck in time to see The white lights, a train bearing down on me I won't feel the hurt, I'm not trash any longer That that doesn't kill me, only makes me stronger I need a ride to the morgue, that's what 911 is for So tag my toe and don't forget to, oh, close the drawer 5. Wake Up Dead I sneak in my own house It's four in the morning I've had too much to drink Said I was out with the boys I creep in my bedroom I slip into bed I know if I wake her I'll wake up dead

I wonder, will she find out About the other, other lover Diana Wake Wake Wake Wake up up up up dead, you die dead, and buried dead, you die dead

6. In My Darkest Hour In my hour of need Ha! No, you're not there... And though I reached out for you Wouldn't lend a hand. Through the darkest hour Grace did not shine on me. It feels so cold, very cold No one cares for me. Did you ever think I get lonely ? Did you ever think that I needed love ? Did you ever think to stop thinking ? You're the only one that I'm thinking of... You'll never know how hard I tried to find my space and satisfy you too. Things will be better when I'm dead and gone Don't try to understand, knowing you I'm probably wrong. But, oh, how I lived my life for you! Still you'd turn away Now as I die for you, My flesh still crawls, as I breathe your name All these years I thought I was wrong Now I know it was you! Raise you head, raise your face your eyes Tell me, who do you think you are? I walk, I walk alone Into the promised land. There's a better place for me But it's far, far away Everlasting life for me In a perfect world But I gotta die first, Please God send me on my way ! Time has a way of taking time, Loneliness is not only felt by fools. Alone I call to ease the pain, Yearning to be held by you. Alone so alone, I'm lost Consumed by the pain

The pain, the pain, the pain. Won't you hold me again? And you just laughed, ha! ha! Bitch ! My whole life is work built on the past But the time has come when all things shall pass This good thing passed away 7. Die Dead Enough It's twilight and I wake up hot My body's soaked in a cold, cold sweat I reenact the lurid scenes And clawed engravings in my head Oh, I can't punch hard enough and I run I can't kick high enough and I run I can't shoot straight enough and I run I can't hold on enough and I run Oh, I can't stay down enough and I run I can't take pain enough and I run I can't bleed fast enough I can't die dead enough The air is thick, but the oxygen's thin My heart is beating like a drum, boom! And ice is flowing through my veins Explosives on my lips and in my lungs Oh, I can't punch hard enough and I run I can't kick high enough and I run I can't shoot straight enough and I run I can't hold on enough and I run Oh, I can't stay down enough and I run I can't take pain enough and I run I can't bleed fast enough I can't die dead enough I don't know what I'm running from And I don't know where I'm running to There's something deep and strange inside of me I see I don't know what I'm running from And I don't know where I'm running to Something's compelling me to run into the dark! And And And Now I I I I I I I now I am more driven than before now I live just to settle score now I feel the nearness of your breath I introduce you to your death

am more driven than before live just to settle score feel the nearness of your breath introduce you to your death can't punch hard enough can't kick high enough can't shoot straight enough

I I I I I

can't can't can't can't can't

hold on enough... stay down enough, die dead enough! take pain enough, die dead enough! bleed fast enough, die dead enough! die dead enough, die dead enough!

8. She Wolf The mother of all that is evil her lips are poisonous venom Wicked temptress knows how to please The priestess roars, "get down on your knees" The rite of the praying mantis Kiss the bones of the enchantress Spellbound searching through the night A howling man surrenders the fight One look in her lusting eyes Savage fear in you will rise Teeth of terror sinking in The bite of the she-wolf My desires of flesh obey me The lioness will enslave me Another heartbeat than my own Sound of claws on cobblestone Beware what stalks you in the night Beware the she-wolf and her bite her mystic lips tell only lies her hidden will to kill in disguise 9. Reckoning Day I like the way that I make you itch And all the reasons I give you to bitch And how I make you wanna scream in pain And feel your life is just a losing game I like the way that you let me in The way you look when the walls cave in I like the way that your stomach knots And how you cry for it all to stop I like the way that you fool yourself And make believe there's nobody else I like the way that you stand in line And beg salvation from the empty skies Don't want no revenge Ain't no pay back time It ain't called getting even Here comes the reckoning day I like the things that you try to fake

And your face when I see you break And that you say you will pray for me You realize you are prey for me I like the way you stay on attack No matter what, I keep coming back And how you try to hold me down But you end up driven to the ground 10. A Toute Le Monde Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game More seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes When I found out how little I accomplished All my plans denied So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all A tout le monde (To all the world) A tout mes amis (To all my friends) Je vous aime (I love you) Je dois partir (I have to leave) These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free If my heart was I know it would And my memories There's nothing still alive surely break left with you more to say

Moving on is a simple thing What it leaves behind is hard You know the sleeping feel no more pain And living, all are scarred 11. Angry Again The The The The more more more more of you that I inspect of me I see reflect I try to read your lips the mask you're wearing rips

But when I seek out your voice My ears are overcome with noise You show and tell with greatest ease Raving impossibilities Engaged in crime I grasp my throat

Enraged my mind starts to smoke Enforce a mental overload Angry again, angry again, angry ow And when the story takes a twist If folds like a contortionist Slight of hand and quick exchange The old tricks have been rearranged Engaged in crime I grasp my throat Enraged my mind starts to smoke Enforce a mental overload Angry again, angry again, angry The searing of the sinew My body fights for air The ripping of the tissue My lungs begin to tear Gravity's got my bones It pulls my flesh away The steam finally dissipates I make out my sweaty face Association that I choose Game I inevitably lose Governed by laws set up by me Fracture its jaw to let me be A cut-out cardboard condo maze Filled with an insubordinate race Irrational youths stop to stare As music rubber hosed the air Engaged in crime I grasp my throat Enraged my mind starts to smoke Enforce a mental overload Angry again, angry again, angry again And again and again, again Engaged in crime I grasp my throat Enraged my mind starts to smoke Enforce a mental overload Angry again, angry again, angry ow 12. Hangar 18 Welcome to our fortress tall Take some time to show you around Impossible to break these walls For you see the steel is much too strong Computer banks to rule the world Instruments to sight the stars Possibly I've seen to much Hangar 18 I know too much Foreign life forms inventory

Suspended state of cryogenics Selective amnesia's the story Believed foretold but who'd suspect. The military intelligence Two words combined that can't make sense Possibly I've seen to much Hangar 18 I know too much 13. Return To Hangar Welcome to an empty fortress A mighty wreck that once was proud Ate alive by oxidation Abandoned by a crew of cowards Navigation systems failed Computers crashed and they all fall down Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much All the guilty paid the price Suspended by their broken necks No one survived to tell the story When foreign life forms resurrect And military intelligence is Still two words that can't make sense Possibly I've seen too much Hangar 18 I know too much 14. I'll Be There I heard the voice of redemption For me there is no exemption I started praying I heard the voice of satisfaction Needing me for benefaction I started pleading I heard the bells begin to chime Warning me oh lord Don't let this be my time Don't let this be my time I'll I'll When Till be there for you, when you walk through the fire be there for you, when the flames get higher nothing fits and nothing seems right the very last breath of my life, I'll be there for you

You saw me slide, you saw me fall We kept our pride through it all We started screaming When skies are dark, no sun shines through

I know I see the light in you We stopped dreaming and started believing I'll I'll When Till I'll be there for you, when you walk through the fire be there for you, when the flames get higher nothing fits and nothing seems right the very last breath of my life, I'll be there for you be there

In my hour of need You were there always Now it's time for me to be there for you too Always I'll be there for you 15. Tornado Of Souls This morning I made the call The one that ends it all Hanging up, I wanted to cry But dammit, this well's gone dry Not for the money, not for the fame Not for the power, just no more games But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go No more living trapped inside In her way I'll surely die In the eye of the tornado, blow me away You'll grow to loathe my name You'll hate me just the same You won't need your breath And soon you'll meet your death Not from the years, not from the use Not from the tears, just self abuse Who's to say, what's for me to say...be...do Cause a big nothing it'll be for me The land of opportunity The golden chance for me My future looks so bright Now I think I've seen the light Can't say what's on my mind Can't do what I really feel In this bed I made for me Is where I sleep, I really feel I warn you of the fate Proven true to late Your tongue twist perverse Come drink now of this curse And now I fill your brain I spin you round again My poison fills your head As I tuck you into bed You feel my fingertips

You won't forget my lips You'll feel my cold breath It's the kiss of death 16. Trust Lost in a dream Nothing is what it seems Searching my head For the words that you said Tears filled my eyes As we said our last goodbyes This sad scene replays Of you walking away My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust Time and again She repeats let's be friends I smile and say yes Another truth bends I must confess I try to let go, but I know We'll never end 'til we're dust We lied to each other again But I wish I could trust My body aches from mistakes Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much That in nothing we trust God help me please, on my knees Betrayed by lust We lied to each other so much Now there's nothing we trust [Whispered:] 'How could this be happening to me I'm lying when I say "trust me" I can't believe this is true Trust hurts Why does trust equal suffering' Absolutely nothing we trust ! 17. Something That I'm Not Your mind tells you that you've lost your confidence You're drifting and ya don't believe in anyone To lose what little you have left to be proud of

Afraid you can't do this again, ah! You said that nothing come in-between us The way of getting things we wanted done Then enissophobia held you under its influence Until you compromised your style Everything about you has been one big charade What will you do now that the well's run dry? Cry? To sell out all your friends and stab them in the back It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not When you forced me into doing what you love Mark my words no one loves you very much, yeah mark em' And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me I couldn't help but end just hating you, hmm! Being a fraud can only last so long, you should know Till what ya sensed as a child returns, you little baby To choke out the voice that told ya "money and the fame" Would fill the crater that you dug for yourself Unlike you I'm no vision to myself, lest you forget You didn't ever make metal, buddy; metal made you To crush and run over everyone along the way It's something that you are; it's something that I'm not A stranger to yourself, ha! ya pissed me off again I won't be driven by your needs anymore What you'd become to do or be is clear to see for me It's something that you are; something that I'm not It makes me sick to hear you say you "love me" I know you only love what I can do for you If you were the one that was leading the charge Would you notice if I missed a day or two? But that's impossible! We all laughed at the parodies that you'd become Now your pain slowly paid back has begun So, accept my resignation, or in your words "betrayal" Before it gets much worse, end this self-sabotage Something that I'm not, something that you are, something I'm not Something that I'm not, something that you are, something I'm not Something that you are, something I'm not, yet 18. Kick The Chair Dawn breaks evenly today On the truth and the lie All rise, courts in session Were hanging someone high Justice means nothing today Now that the courts are for sale Pick a crime from the menu; pick a sentence and defend you

And pay up the down payment called bail The system's for sale Kick the chair, the rope's tight Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out Friend or foe, I gotta hang em dead Or they'll come back around Kick it! The court's wrong when it keeps tracks Of victories and defeats The press that never rest just waits For somebody's soul they can eat Justice means nothing today Now that the jury's for sale Guilty or not, the verdict's a lie You're going to jail The system has failed Kick the chair, the rope's tight Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out Friend or foe, ya gotta hang em dead Or they'll come 19. Coming Home To Argentina And today, I leave you But I'll be back someday And as I fly away My hope is that we'll meet again I'm off to my home away from home I will miss you But I know I know you know I'm coming home to Arizona I'm coming home to Arizona I'll take you everywhere I go I'll show you everything I see And as we say so long I know your tears wish me well It won't be long till I'm back again We will meet again We will meet again You will see, oh I'm coming home to Arizona I'm coming home 20. Symphony Of Destruction You take a mortal man, And put him in control Watch him become a god,

Watch peoples heads a'roll A'roll... [Chorus:] Just like the Pied Piper Led rats through the streets We dance like marionettes, Swaying to the Symphony... Of Destruction Acting like a robot, Its metal brain corrodes You try to take its pulse, Before the head explodes Explodes... [Chorus] [Solo] The earth starts to rumble World powers fall A'warring for the heavens, A peaceful man stands tall Tall... [Chorus] 21. Peace Sells What do you mean "I don't believe in God"? I talk to him everyday. What do you mean, "I don't support your system"? I go to court when I have to What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"? I got nothing better to do. And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"? Why do you think I'm broke? Huh? If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line. But it better work this time. What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"? I didn't know you had any feelings. What do you mean, "I ain't kind"? Just not your kind. What do you mean, "I couldn't be the President Of the United States of America"? Tell me something, it's still "We the people," right? If there's a new way I'll be the first in line But it better work this time Can you put a price on peace?

Peace, Peace sells..., Peace, Peace sells..., Pace sells... but who's Pace sells... but who's Pace sells... but who's Pace sells... but who's No, peace sells... 22. Holy Wars

buying? buying? buying? buying?

Brother will kill brother Spilling blood across the land killing for religion Something i don't understand Fools like me, who cross the sea And come to foreign lands Ask the sheep, for their beliefs Do you kill on God's command? A country that's divided Surely will not stand My past erased, no more disgrace No foolish naive stand The end is near, it's crystal clear Part of the master plan Don't look now to Israel It might be your homelands Holy wars Upon my podium, as the Know it all scholar Down in my seat of judgement Gavel's bang, uphold the law Up on my soapbox, a leader Out to change the world Down in my pulpit as the holier Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God [Solo] Wage the war on organized crime Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks Behind the lines Some people risk to employ me Some people live to destroy me Either way they die The killed my wife, and my baby With hopes to enslave me First mistake.....last mistake! Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants Next mistake.....no more mistakes!

Fill the cracks in, with judical granite Because I don't say, i don't mean it I ain't Thinkin' it Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away I know what i said, now i must scream of the overdose And the lack of mercy killings Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away....
