  • Kingmaker

    Kingmaker

    Music by: Mustaine/Ellefson

    Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Generation of the dark watch their lives decay
    Persecuting their 'own kind', there's nothing you can say
    Don't ask anyone for help, they won't know what to do
    If you try, if you don't die, you'll end up black and blue

    Epidemic of addiction, worshipping the pill
    Drown them all with alcohol, anything for thrills
    Precious life goes up in smoke, going nowhere fast
    The world is running rampant and you know that this can't last

    I want everything that makes me feel alright
    That feels alive, don't ask me why
    I want everything, right before my eyes
    I can't deny I want to be the King!
    Kingmaker!

    Solo - Broderick

    Searching for an answer, but you see you're all alone
    Mom and Daddy's lights are on but nobody's home
    They glorify their tortured life; they talk of days like this
    Sentencing their children, when they need to eat a fist

    Narcotics have enslaved them; now it's coming after you
    Pearl of wisdom hit the floor, there's nothing you can do
    Out of control, you sell your soul, so blind, you couldn't see
    Ten feet tall, it made you crawl; it's better you than me

    I want everything that makes me feel alright
    That feels alive, don't ask me why
    I want everything, right before my eyes
    I can't deny I want to be the King!
    Kingmaker!

    Solo - Broderick
    Solo - Mustaine

    I want everything that makes me feel alright
    That feels alive, don't ask me why
    I want everything, right before my eyes
    I can't deny I want to be the King!
    It makes me feel alive, I want everything
    It makes me feel alright, I want everything
    The things I can't deny, I want everything
    I want to be the King!

    Super Collider

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    When you feel life is bringing you down
    And you see that you're all alone
    When your friends, they have all run out
    That is when you will know I'm the one

    On the high road, I will take you higher
    Till the world explodes, just like a super collider

    This could be all the heaven you see
    Life can be wicked, mean, and cold
    Could this be the end of your living hell?
    Come with me and I'll free your soul

    On the high road, I will take you higher
    Till the world explodes, just like a super collider

    Solo - Mustaine

    Just one thing that I want you to know
    You don't need to be on your own
    No more feeling left out in the cold
    Take my hand and I'll take you home

    On the high road, I will take you higher
    Till the world explodes, just like a super collider...
  • Burn!

    Burn!

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    I've got a sickening feeling
    My life is standing still
    It's clear that fate is closing in
    But this is the life I choose
    I've got so much time to kill
    Born to lose, I'll die to win

    Burn, baby burn...'cause it feels so good

    I'm getting on my own nerves
    And I get no satisfaction
    Till I light it up and I burn it down
    One match lights my fire
    And it starts a chain reaction
    That burns my crooked past to the ground

    Burn, baby burn...'cause it feels so good
    Burn, baby burn...like I knew it would
    Fire, I've got the fire
    Fire, burning desire...my desire to burn

    Solo - Mustaine

    I hear the darkness call
    The sirens are growing near
    It's time I make my great escape
    The flames are getting tall
    Inside my rear view mirror
    Just a spark is all it takes

    Burn, baby burn...'cause it feels so good
    Burn, baby burn...like I knew it would
    Fire, I've got the fire
    Fire, burning desire
    I've got the fire, burning desire
    And it burns, yeah, baby it burns
    It burns; yeah, it burns, hotter than hell

    Sifting the damage done
    I'm burning up all the proof
    I won't be going down in flames
    At large, I'm on the run
    They're tightening up the noose
    It's too late; I need to get away

    Burn, baby burn...'cause it feels so good
    Burn, baby burn...like I knew it would
  • Built for War

    Built for War

    Music by: Mustaine/Drover/Broderick

    Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Built for war, what do you think your fists are for? Built for war!

    Listen, I didn't start this - believe me, I will finish it...
    You called down the thunder - too late now there's no way out...
    Nothing is gonna stop me - until then better watch your back...

    Built for war, what do you think your fists are for? Built for war!

    There is no retreating - I will cut you down to size...
    You will beg for mercy - a bad seed, you're as good as dead...
    Yield to a new dimension - Hell's coming, better say your prayers...

    Built for war, what do you think your fists are for? Built for war!
    Built for war, are you looking at me, you want some more?
    What do you think your fists are for?

    Solo - Broderick

    One day you will face me - and see the terror trapped inside...
    Final retribution - torture and pure punishment...
    Vengeance running so deep - a dungeon of agony awaits...
    Fear not as death surrounds you - Bitch all you want, but here it comes...

    Built for war, what do you think your fists are for? Built for war!
    Built for war, are you looking at me, you want some more?
    What do you think your fists are for?

  • Off the Edge

    Off the Edge

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Solo - Broderick

    Lately, it seems the world is going crazy
    It won't be long till they replace me
    And nothing seems to faze me, anymore

    I can't take it, I get the feeling I won't make it
    I'm feeling bad and I can't shake it
    And now I'm living just to fake it, what's more

    Which way is right? Come with me
    Which way is wrong? Come with me
    Which way is up? Come with me
    Which way is down?

    Crazy, I'm going crazy, this world's gone crazy
    I'm falling off the edge

    Lately, I wake each morning feeling beat
    And now there's panic in the street
    Someone keeps turning up the heat everywhere

    Every day, I'm like an actor on the stage
    I'll never let you see my rage
    I'm not at peace out of my cage anywhere

    Which way is right? Come with me
    Which way is wrong? Come with me
    Which way is up? Come with me
    Which way is down?

    Crazy, I'm going crazy, this world's gone crazy
    I'm falling off the edge
    Crazy, we're going crazy, this world's gone crazy
    We're falling off the edge

    Solo - Mustaine
    Solo - Broderick

    Lately, I can't believe the things I see
    This ignorance and apathy
    Brings out the lunatic in me, if you care?

    It blows my mind, when you sneak off into the night
    Maybe it's better that you lie
    Just don't forget to say goodbye, if you dare?

    Crazy, I'm going crazy, this world's gone crazy
    I'm falling off the edge
    Crazy, we're going crazy, this world's gone crazy
    We're falling off the edge.
  • Dance in the Rain

    Dance in the Rain

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Sentenced to work a dead end 9 to 5
    Trapped in a dingy corporate cubicle hell
    Then go to work in the darkness on the midnight shift
    Any chance you get, selling gas at the corner Shell

    Three letter groups listening in on you
    Under surveillance courtesy of Big Brother in your car
    Drones monitor each and every move you make
    It doesn't matter who you know or who you think you are

    You'll never see a ray of daylight
    So far in debt you're struggling to survive
    But you will break your back fighting and they'll help
    Before you let them break your pride

    "Powers that be" will never win; a storm is coming, get ready
    You better learn to dance in the rain, instead of wait for the sun
    Learn to dance in the rain, the sun will never come

    Solo - Mustaine

    Down on your luck, you had your hand out once or twice
    But all you wanted was just a hand, they say
    "You have the right to remain silent," so shut your mouth
    Don't mention the broken promises and lies of hope and change

    "Powers that be" will never win; a storm is coming, get ready
    You better learn to dance in the rain, instead of wait for the sun
    Learn to dance in the rain, the sun will never come

    Solo - Broderick

    Never come, dance in the rain, it ain't gonna come

    Solo - Mustaine

    Enslave and impoverish the middle class
    Make them dependent then strip it all away
    Al-CIA-da, destruction, and democide
    Addicition, corruption, every word's a lie

    Races, classes, sexes, religious wars
    Destroy the family, and what love is for

    The Fed and the Bankers own all the politicians
    May I introduce you to the sons of perdition?
    Replace the dictators Washington appointed
    The Devil Messiahs and the dangerously disappointed

    They lie to themselves, pleased with what they've done
    Soon they all will be repaid and there's nowhere to run
  • Beginning of Sorrow

    Beginning of Sorrow

    Music by: Mustaine/Broderick/Ellefson

    Lyrics by: Mustaine/Ellefson

    Beginning of Sorrow
    There'll be no tomorrow
    Beginning of Sorrow

    Easy prey, so innocent
    She barely was a teen
    Hooked up with Mr. Right now
    A nightmare that stole her dreams
    Complications come
    The Doctor says you gotta know
    You decide if the baby lives
    But one of you has got to go

    The Beginning of Sorrow, Beginning of Sorrow
    There will be no tomorrow, There'll be no tomorrow
    The Beginning of Sorrow, Beginning of Sorrow
    There will be no tomorrow

    Brought forth in agony
    This life was misbegot
    Born in an alleyway
    A child nobody will adopt
    Delinquent in a foster home
    His heart is so full of rage
    His first name's "Ward"
    His last name is "Of the State"

    Solo - Mustaine
    Acoustic - Broderick

    Origo doloris non erit crastinus dies

    Solo - Mustaine

    Like father, like son
    Soon he gets revenge
    Two souls soon become one
    The vicious cycle never ends
    Unwanted, unloved
    He lives now just to hate
    From the pain of being born
    And nothing can take that away

    The Beginning of Sorrow, Beginning of Sorrow
    There will be no tomorrow, There'll be no tomorrow
    The Beginning of Sorrow, Beginning of Sorrow
    There will be no tomorrow...
  • The Blackest Crow

    The Blackest Crow

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    This cold, empty house is
    So quiet now she's gone
    The dust accumulates into
    Mountains on the ground

    My paper's piled on the steps
    Her flowers all have died
    I'm searching everywhere
    For someone I'll never find

    The haunting never fades, laughter's gone away
    It's too late, when you've lost your soul
    I left her everything, she only left my ring
    My world is darker now than the blackest crow

    Slide - Mustaine

    Shadows fill this place
    She's been away so long
    The wallpaper leaves a stain
    Where pictures once belonged

    You think I would have known
    Something was going on
    Her kisses were so cold
    Her loving touch withdrawn

    The haunting never fades, laughter's gone away
    It's too late, when you've lost your soul
    I left her everything, she only left my ring
    My world is darker now than the blackest crow

    Solo - Mustaine

    They never do teach you how to walk away from someone that you love

    The haunting never fades, the laughter's gone away
    I know it's too late, when you've lost your soul
    The fires all but gone, my world is darker now
    Than the blackest crow

    Slide - Mustaine

    The blackest crow...
  • Forget to Remember

    Forget to Remember

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Solo - Mustaine

    Sands in the hourglass fall for us all
    You don't answer me anymore when I call
    So much is trapped inside, tangled in your brain
    It's getting cold outside and it looks like rain
    The sky is falling and my heart is caving in

    So, now the time has come to say the long goodbye
    The setting of the sun reflecting in your eyes
    Day after day after day the world will pass you by, you forget to remember

    Solo - Mustaine

    If this is living, what the hell is living for?
    You've boarded up your eyes, your mind has locked the door
    I'm just a stranger now with an unfamiliar face
    You can't recall me at all, there's not a trace...not a trace...not a trace
    I don't know where you are and my world is crumbling in

    So, now the time has come to say the long goodbye
    The setting of the sun reflecting in your eyes
    Day after day after day the world is passing you by, you forget to remember

    Solo - Broderick

    I just want to talk - What do you want?
    But you've nothing to say - Leave me alone
    I beg you to come - Get away from me
    And you just walk away - I have no idea who you are!
    I curse the day that your smile fades away, till then I pray

    A burning candle in-between and at both ends
    With all that we've learned, yet we still pretend
    I just wish you could say my name again

    They made the lock and broke the key, the culprit was the mercury
    The vaccine wipes your memories, till you forget even how to breathe
    A tangled web they weave, when they practice to deceive

    So, now the time has come to say the long goodbye
    The setting of the sun reflecting in your eyes
    Day after day after day the world has passed you by
    I said that I'd be strong, but you know I had to lie

    You forget to remember...it's time to say the long goodbye
  • Don't Turn Your Back...

    Don't Turn Your Back...

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    Solo - Broderick

    When things were good I knew you would always be there for me
    Yes it's true; friends like you are few and far between
    I wish I may, I wish I might, the things you do ain't quite right
    Just ain't right

    And still we try to pretend
    That you will be here in the end
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't ever turn your back on a friend
    Don't turn your back...

    Solo - Broderick
    Solo - Mustaine

    When things were bad you always had something else better to do
    It's just a lie to think that I could ever mean anything to you
    You steal what's mine then help me look for it; how many times do I pay for it?
    How many times?

    And still we try to pretend
    That you will be here in the end
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't ever turn your back on a friend

    And still we try to pretend
    Don't turn your back on a friend
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't turn your back on a friend

    Don't turn your back...

  • Cold Sweat

    Cold Sweat

    Music & Lyrics by: Phil Lynott/John Sykes

    I put my money in the suitcase
    And headed for the big race
    I felt a chill on my backbone
    As I hung up the telephone

    Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
    Running down the back of my neck
    To lose means trouble, to win pays double
    And I got me a heavy bet

    Cold, cold sweat

    They say chances on the outside
    Are looking pretty slim
    I feel so lucky on the inside
    I feel I'm going to win

    Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
    Running down the back of my neck
    Take a little money, there's nothing left to lose
    And I got me a heavy bet

    Cold, cold sweat

    I've got a whole month's wages
    I haven't seen that much in ages
    I might spend it in stages
    And move out to Las Vegas

    Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
    Running down the back of my neck
    To lose means trouble, to win pays double
    And I got me a heavy bet

    Cold, cold sweat

    I put my money in the suitcase
    They say chances on the outside
    I've got a whole month's wages

    Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
    Stone cold crazy
    Place another bet
  • All I Want [Bonus Track]

    All I Want [Bonus Track]

    Music & Lyrics by: Mustaine

    In a filthy barroom
    She was shooting pool with friends
    I sent someone over and
    I watched her shake her head, she said

    If I wanted to meet her
    I had to come at least that far
    I introduced myself to a look that would kill
    She sneered, "I know who you are"
    Oh yeah, that's right, climb on and hold tight
    She is all I want in a girl

    Solo - Mustaine

    We took off on a rocket ride
    It felt like it would never end
    I started moving in on over
    And I watched her tilt her head, she said

    If I'm gonna lay it on her, it'd better
    Be more than just tonight
    At that moment I knew after I kissed you
    I've known you all my life, she said

    Oh yeah, that's right, climb on and hold tight
    She is all I want in a girl
    Oh yeah, that's right, I like that she's all spice
    I am all she wants in my girl

    Solo - Broderick

    All I want, all I need, all I want, all that I need...

    All I want in a girl, she is all that... I want

    All I want, all I need, all I want, all that I need...
    She is all that I want

    A House Divided [Bonus Track]

    Music by: Mustaine

    Lyrics by: Mustaine/Johnny K

    We all know about the hate you're breeding
    And we pay for the machine you're feeding
    You can never shut up, you can never shut down
    This house divided

    We all know, we all know, something's wrong, we all know

    Something's wrong about the way you're thinking
    The rats are jumping, and your ship is sinking
    You can never get on, you can never get off
    This house divided...

    We all hear about the case you're pleading
    Your demands have gone beyond conceding
    You can never get in, you can never get out
    This house divided...

    This is a sad day for violence
    When speech results in silence
    I'm supposed to hate you
    You're supposed to hate me
    We can never agree

    Solo - Broderick

    Now we've become so desperate
    Don't you forget you asked for it!
    I'm supposed to hate you
    You're supposed to hate me
    We never agree

    Solo - Broderick
    Solo - Mustaine

    We all know about the hate you're breeding
    And we pay for the machine you're feeding
    A house divided...

    Countdown to Extinction (Live in Pomona, CA) [Bonus Track]

    Music by: Mustaine/Friedman

    Lyrics by: Mustaine/Menza/Ellefson

    Endangered species, caged in fright
    Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight
    The stage is 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 trophy, 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

    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

    Solo - Broderick

    "One hour from now
    Another species of life form
    Will disappear off the face of the planet
    Forever, and the rate is accelerating"

    Solo - Mustaine & Broderick

    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
