    MOTO PSYCHO

    Responsibility, an anchor around my neck
    Dependability, made me a nervous wreck
    Accountability, I live from check to check
    Volatility, neglect and no respect

    Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
    I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"

    Solo - Pitrelli

    One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
    Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

    Moto Psycho
    Going nowhere everybody is a
    Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
    Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
    Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho
    Moto Psycho

    You know you can't resist to tell me what I mean
    You gave my mind a twist said that I was unclean
    The actor runs the play and ad-libs in between
    You're all that I resent my thoughts were so obscene

    Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
    I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"

    Solo - Mustaine

    One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
    Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

    Moto Psycho
    Going nowhere everybody is a
    Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
    Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
    Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho

    One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
    Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

    Moto Psycho
    Going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho
    Going nowhere move it or lose it baby Moto Psycho
    Going nowhere 100 miles an hour Moto Psycho
    Where I'm headed I don't know but I'm shoving off and I hit the road
    Going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho - time and time and time again I'm a
    Moto Psycho
    Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
    Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
    Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho

  • DREAD AND THE FUGITIVE MIND

    DREAD AND THE FUGITIVE MIND

    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

  • PROMISES

    PROMISES

    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 when we walk down the street
    The wind sings our name in rebel songs
    The sounds of the night should make us anxious
    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

    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

    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

  • THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO

    THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO

    An Iron fist quietly sits inside the Velvet Glove
    Take control, untouchable just like God above
    I can't escape, wrapped in red tape, what will become of me?
    If I object, then I defect my country 'tis of thee

    The White House is calling
    Tell them I'll call them back
    Just tell them anything
    Yeah get them off my back

    The world needs a hero

    Not that I would ever lie but I have no choice
    Words I say heard today are not mine, just my voice

    NATO is on line 1
    They want to talk to me
    Tell them that I'm not in
    Tell them that I'm not free

    The world needs a hero

    Phantom rule, the hidden jewel who's really in control?
    On puppet strings, a nation swings undermined by moles

    The UN is on hold
    Tell them I'll call them back
    Yeah tell them anything
    Just get them off my back

    The world needs a hero

    Solo - Mustaine
    Solo - Pitrelli

    Dave the White House is calling
    They want to talk to me
    Tell them that I can't be bought
    Tell them that I'm not free

    The world needs a hero

  • BURNING BRIDGES

    BURNING BRIDGES

    You give up on yourself
    Somehow you got betrayed agin
    Thin ice and luck runs out
    Who will you blame it on this time?

    Due to lack of interest in you
    The light at the end of the tunnel
    Was turned off
    And something I noticed
    Beating you is thrilling me
    I've got a secret for you

    If you took your own direction
    If only you practice what you preach
    If you follow your advice
    You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

    Don't close your eyes to injustice
    Listen, being brave ain't chicken shit
    A man without any valor
    Has nothing worth living for

    Due to lack of interest in you
    The light at the end of the tunnel
    Was turned off
    And something I noticed
    Beating you is thrilling me
    I've got a secret for you

    If you took your own direction
    If only you practice what you preach
    If you follow your advice
    You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

    Solo - Mustaine
    Solo - Pitrelli

    If you took your own direction
    If only you practice what you preach
    If you follow your advice
    You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

    If you took your own direction
    If only you practice what you preach
    If you follow your advice
    You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

  • RETURN TO HANGAR

    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

    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
