ORIGINAL LYRICS


ÜBERSETZUNG


Last Rides / Loved To Deth
(Mustaine)

Solo - Mustaine

Your body's empty now as I hold you
Now you're 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 then 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, what do I see?
You didn't go to heaven you're down here with me
And now you're 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


Last Rides / Loved To Deth
(Mustaine)




Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!
(Mustaine)

I am a sniper always hit the mark

Paid assassin working after dark
Looking through the night using infra-red
Target's on you aimed at your head

$10,000 up front $10,000 when I'm through
And I know just what to do
And you know I'll do it too
Then I'm coming 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 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

Solo - Poland

You'd better believe it


Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!
(Mustaine)




The Skull Beneath The Skin
(Mustaine)

Solo - Mustaine

Mean and infectious the evil prophets rise
Dance of the Macabre as witches streak the sky
Decadent worship of black magic sorcery
In the womb of the Devil's 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 found
Screaming for your life but no one hears a sound
Help me!

Prepare the patient's scalp to peel away
Metal cap's 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 you're 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


The Skull Beneath The Skin
(Mustaine)




Rattlehead
(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

Rattlehead

A dose of metal you need
To bang your head till you bleed
It's time for snapping some necks
Slashing, thrashing to Megadeth

Solo - Poland

Rattlehead

Solo - Poland

You, your head, is pounding with pain
You shake loose parts of your brain
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 "fit in"
Don't wear no spikes to be "cool"
Don't want no woman beside him
Just make it fast, loud and rude

Rattlehead

Solo - Mustaine

I'm a Rattlehead
Rattle your Goddamn Head!


Rattlehead
(Mustaine)




Chosen Ones
(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 fields 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 creature's eyes grow near
Raise the shield of the holy pilgrim
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!

Solo - Mustaine

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

Bass solo - Ellefson

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 fields of battle
We are the chosen ones


Chosen Ones
(Mustaine)




Looking Down The Cross
(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 sin
Destiny, fate the wicked ones gate beckoning you in

Solo - Mustaine

Down the walkways through the blood stained town
Looking down the cross bleeding from the crown
Led to slay, 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 serpent's breath malevolently destined
More corrupt than the malice of Choronzon
More disease than the wind of the moonlight sun

Putrefaction you have caused no need for confession
Now you wish you had a God to stop your demolition
Crushing the bones of the hundredfolds swinging the judgment 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 un-hallow 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
Set free to sit upon the throne
Just a dream? You're weeping all alone

Solo - Mustaine

Looking down the cross, speak no evil
I'm looking down the cross, speak no evil


Looking Down The Cross
(Mustaine)




Mechanix
(Mustaine)

Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
You're a burner yeah a real motor car

Said you want to get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought 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 you know it feels too slow

Said you want to get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought 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

I'm giving you my room service
And you know it's more than enough
Oh, one more time you know I'm in love

Said you want to get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me, I do it for my life, fuck yeah
Made my drive shaft crank, made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearings melt from the heat, oh yeah

Solo - Mustaine

These Boots
(Hazelwood)

Solo - Poland

You keep saying you got something for me
Something 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
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you

Solo - Poland

You been lying and there ain't no believing
And you keep sayin, what you on about bitch
You been staying when you ought-to-be-a-leaving
Now what's right is right but you ain't been right yet

These boots are made for walking
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you

Solo - Poland

You keep dressin' 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 made for walking
That's just what they'll do
And one of these days these boots
Are gonna stomp all over you

Are you ready boots?
Start walking

Solo - Poland

And you think I'm kiddin, don'tchya!
