02. This Day We Fight!

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
For this I was chosen because I fear nothing
With confidence I tread through the dead of the night
Off to another war torn, far away battlefield
Wherein lies a daemonic enemy horde

On this day I desire to anoint my fists
Engaging them in the mode of power and war
Stopping at nothing that's short of fulfilling my destiny
Willing to die and I will, after you for what I believe

Solo - Chris

A desperate avenger striking fear in their hearts
Invading their dreams before the day even starts

Solo - Dave

Whet with your blood, I sharpen my sword
No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day

Sent on an unholy quest, to reduce all those who resist
To the size of their shriveled up souls and scatter them like grist
I vanquished the strangleholds that the netherworld sets for me
The last request of my life is to die killing my enemies

Solo - Chris

Bathed in blood up to the horses' bridle
Its death to retreat, there's no chance of survival

Solo - Dave

Whet with your blood, I sharpen my sword
No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day, this day we fight!

This day we fight!

Strip the fallen heroes, finish off the wounded
Collect the spoils of war and send them back dead

Solo - Dave
Solo - Chris
Solo - Dave

This day we fight!
This day I fight!


03. 44 Minutes

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
It was a cool winter's morning
Somewhere shortly past 9:00 AM
The armored car they wanted to heist wasn't coming
So instead they went for the bank

The fateful duo that sat in the get-away car
Heavily sedated with thousands of rounds
Armor piercing, fully automatic weapons
The bowls of wrath poured on the ground

Baptized in a firefight, hot blood running cold as ice
44 Minutes of target practice, all hell's breaking loose
Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife
Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel
And brought down the beast

Solo - Chris

This was an accident waiting to happen
It wasn't if it would happen, it was when
The city's people sabotaged themselves
Calling their firepower an unneeded expense

The two most violent men it seemed couldn't be stopped
Standard police issue guns were just not enough
But SWAT arrived and settled the fight
Between AK-47 and AR-15

Chorus

04. 1,320

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
Grinding my teeth, white knuckles grasp at the wheel
I rush from an avalanche of adrenaline; it's all that I feel
As quick as a bolt of lightning, a rocket ride in a bucket seat
It doesn't get any better than this; it just feeds my need for speed

Supercharged, strapped in and screaming
Fire spitting from the pipes
A burnout by the flame throwing fury
8,000 horses ignite
Full throttle, hit the ground running
With a tank full of nitro
And its 1,320' to go to the finish line

Solo - Chris

My hands hold tight, a fire breathing stampede
I fall into a trance, hold my breath till the light turns green
In a cloud of nitro methane, melting rubber, I say my prayers
Man and machine accelerate and I vanish in thin air

Chorus

Solo - Dave
Solo - Chris

05. Bite The Hand That Feeds

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
They ball-gagged Lady Justice
And blindfolded her so she can't see
The erosion of the peoples' trust
Of what will come to be an FDIC Assisted Suicide

The depression of a depression
Worldwide suicide for the economy
Caused by the dialectic chaos when the
Mob on Wall Street took "We the people" for a ride

When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds

Solo - Chris

They took everything and anything
As long as it once belonged to me
The rats got all the money; the roaches
Licked the cupboards clean of TV dinners and beer

This never-ending nightmare
Of the dreams I'll never, ever get to see
And just one silver-bullet to your head
It will set me free from all the life I wasted trusting you

When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Just like the mad dog you bite the hand that feeds

Solo - Chris


06. Bodies Left Behind

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
This thing called "life" goes by so quickly
One day you're here and then you're gone
This is the moment I've lived my whole life for
And I'll never give up; I've waited too long

I've waited, waited too long, I've waited too long

And all along the road, all the bodies left behind
May all have been good friends; just not good friends of mine

I've been kicked out and said I quit
Then I said, "I had enough" and "this is it"
All I wanted was just one more show for the road
Cause it was over last time before I could blink, I could blink

I've waited, waited too long, I've waited too long

Chorus

Their bodies left behind

Solo - Dave
Solo - Chris


07. Endgame

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
"Attention! Attention!! All citizens are ordered to report to their
District detention centers! Do not return to your homes; do not
contact anyone! Do not use any cellular or GPS devices!
Surrender all weapons at once! Attention! This way to the camps!"

I woke up in a black FEMA box
Darkness was all around me, in my coffin
My dreams are all nightmares anymore
And this is what I dream every night

The Leader of the New World Order, the President of the United States
Has declared anyone now residing inside the US of A
Without the RFID chip, you're just an illegal alien
An enemy combatant of America, welcome to the New World Order

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the . . .

A society in a society, inside the fence life as you know it stops
They got their rules of conduct and we got ours
Be quick or be dead, you crumble up and die, the clock is
Ticking so slowly and so much can happen in an hour

Solo - Chris

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the endgame

I learned my lessons the hard way, every scar I earned
I had to bleed, inside the day yard
A system of controlled movement, like a giant ant farm
Any time is long time, now you're not in charge of your time anymore

Solo - Chris

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the end

Solo - Chris

The Ex-President signed a secret bill that can
Land a legal US Citizen in jail and the
Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
They say a Concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!

Solo - Dave

Refuse the chip? Ha! Get persecute and beat by the
Tyranny of Mind control, for the mark of the beast
All rights removed, you're punished, captured, and enslaved
Believe me when I say, "This IS the Endgame!"

Solo - Dave


08. The Hardest Part Of Letting Go... Sealed With A Kiss

Music by Dave Mustaine, Chris Broderick
Lyrics by Dave Mustaine
Such a pretty face, radiant
I saw you, across the room
I knew I had to have you

Thus started the chase
I knew I would do anything to take
Your hand and make you mine

But I learned long ago
If you love someone you have to let it go
The hardest part of letting go
Is saying goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

[Sealed With A Kiss]

Fettered away in a makeshift cell
Beneath the venomous moonlight
I unleash my plan to watch you fail
The one I held so high

Go to sleep my love
Taste my sweet revenge on your lips
Its sealed with a kiss

Solo - Chris

I return to the masquerade ball
And leave the lone figure weeping
Stone by stone, immured in the wall
Forever left in safekeeping

Go to sleep my love
Taste my sweet revenge on your lips
Its sealed with a kiss

[The Hardest Part Of Letting Go...(continued)]

But I learned long ago
If you love someone you have to let it go
Let it go, let it go
The hardest part of letting go
Is saying goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye


09. Headcrusher

Music by Dave Mustaine, Shawn Drover
Lyrics by Dave Mustaine
It's time to take your last walk in this world
Before your journey begins underground
But not before we torment you from your cell
Sent straight to hell, a short detour in between
Begging for mercy you're all alone
Unable to handle the pressure
A post mortification
Now let the torture begin!

Death by the Head Crusher
Head Crusher!
Death by the Head Crusher
Ow!

The horrific torture device
For those who fail interrogation
The most painful technique ever known
People thirst for the worst, disgusts that's integration
Beaten, broken, in bloody wreck
Adding insult to injury
Heed the cast but it's much too late
Now let the torture begin!

Death by the Head Crusher
Head Crusher!
Death by the Head Crusher

On your knees prisoners, take your positions
Place your chin forward into the restraint
Your head slowly caves in from the compression
You'll faint to the black out from the infernal pain

Twisting, turning the giant screw
Your teeth are breaking loose
Crushed and splintering into your mouth
Winding down, cutting through
Like broken glass being chewed
Your fragmented skull and shattering bones
There's nothing you can do


10. How The Story Ends

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
Far off on the horizon you can barely see their torches
But rest assured they're out there and they're coming
If you listen, the sound is growing nearer of infantry
Marching out a hypnotizing rhythm

Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends

Above the ring of clashing steel, they raise flags of war
A sign to all the warriors who cannot hear
Amidst smoke of cannonballs, they bang the drums of death
Pound a cadence out for those who cannot see

Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends
Poison the wells and scorch the earth, everything's slashed and burnt
You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends

Acoustic Solo - Dave
Solo - Chris

Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends
Poison the wells and scorch the earth, everything's slashed and burnt
You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends


11. The Right To Go Insane

Music & lyrics by Dave Mustaine
I barely get to the graveyard shift on time
After pulling another grueling nine to five
I live from credit card to check
The paper money's whirling by
And I hardly just, just barely, only just survive

I'm living on the edge, reality is teetering, my mind is on the brink

How will I face the day tomorrow if I can't make it through today?
I got nothing left to lose, but my sanity and the right to go insane
I got nothing left to lose, but my mind
I got nothing left to choose, so I think I'll go insane

My stomach aches from insufficient funds
My cheeks are gaunt, my guts are overdrawn
My head pounds, starvation's given me the shakes
Too much squalor, too much pressure, and now I'm getting pissed

I'm living on the edge, reality is teetering, my mind is on the brink

Chorus

Solo - Chris
Solo - Dave
