      "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
      The 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 mustakes
      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

      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



      "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've gone away
      You were almost honest, almost

      Living alone, falling from grace
      I want to be alone but there's just empty space
      I can't face tomorow, now you're not coming back
      Walked off in the night and just left me the tracks

      I question your call by the tone of your voice
      I know I should hang up but I don't have a choice
      It happend that night when you told me to go
      Don't ask who's to blame, I don't know

      Almost, almost honest
      Almost, I was almost honest



      "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 thinge he won't get done

      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
      The 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 that man

      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 hing his head inside the noose

      I've seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use that man
      I've seen them crawl from the cradle to the coffin 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 in his hand
      Cryptic writing on the wall, the beginning of the end
      I've seen myself use the needle, seen the needle in my hand



      "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 meltdoen, a heinous crime

      Mastermind, I tell you waht to thing
      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 horrow 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 submissing, you must know who I am

      I tell you what to think
      I don't care what you thought
      I tell you what to get
      I don't care what you got

      Subject



      "Disintegrators"

      The slayer's arrived
      On a black horse of steel
      Trouble is coming
      Hell on two wheels

      Hide in the shadows
      Awaiting defeat
      Or live by the sword
      And choose to be free

      We say retribution
      We say vengeance is bliss
      We say revolution
      With a cast iron first

      Coming down the road
      Watching every move
      Kicking in the doors
      Taking what we choose

      Anarchy's coming to town
      A fiery invader
      Burning it down to the ground
      The Disintegrators

      Anarchy's coming
      Here it comes
      Burning it down to the ground
      The Disintegrators



      "I'll Get Even"

      I'm lonely and abandoned
      Washed up, left for dead
      I'm lost inside the desert
      Of ever 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 twisted
      I haven't slept in days
      I'm lonely and I'm angry
      I can't make it go 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...
      Ah, I'll get even with you



      "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 that 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 car
      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



      "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 then twist and shout
      Lost my soul without a trace
      Found it again in my secret place
      In discrace

      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


      Have Cool, Will Travel

      Music by: Dave Mustaine
      Lyrics by: Dave Mustaine, 1996

      Note:


      Mamas pack their lunches, kiddies pack 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 then the disease
      I have cool, will travel
      Here we go



      "Shewolf"

      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



      "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

      Searching the domain
      The vortex of pain

      A telestic message
      Writtin in torment
      Howl out dirges
      Like the horns of Jericho
      Distorted faces
      Writhing in rage
      Walls of purgatory
      Tumble down
      Endless death
      The jewls of a crown



      "FFF"

      Looking for a cure within the human race
      Eliminate the poor, how much longer will it take
      Burning up the tents of the rank and file
      Exterminate their lives, crack a demon smile

      Crushing down, caving in our will to live
      Getting rid of man's mistakes
      To take a lost life, lock it up, break it down
      How much more can we take

      Fight for freedom, fight authority
      Fight for anything, my country tis' of me

      Cry for absolution, it's not the end for me
      A last minute pardon, one final reprieve
      Resist the war maching, don't get in its path
      Fight to die a free man and reap the aftermath

      Crushing down, caving in our will to live
      Getting rid of man's mistakes
      To take a lost life, lock it up, break it down
      I don't know how much more I can take

      Fight!... It's my country



      "One Thing"

      One Thing
      That I got for you
      Is the one thing
      That you never do

      One thing makes you feel brand new
      Is the one thing that your coming to
      Just the one thing
      Gets you in the mood

      You call my number in the middle of the night
      To tell me nothing else can make you feel alright
      But its rings and rings you hang it up
      And call me back again

      One Thing
      That I got for you
      Is the one thing
      That you never do

      One thing
      That you got to choose
      Is the one thing you can never lose
      Just the one thing is your attitude

      You call my name in the middle of the night
      When your makin' love and it feels alright
      But it's him not me
      Can't you see a shot of reality?

      I know what you do
      I know what you want to do
      I know when the lights go out
      I know what you are gonna to do

      One Thing
      That I got for you
      Is the one thing
      That you never do

      Just the one thing gets you in the mood
      Just the one thing its your attitude
      One thing is one thing
      Just the one thing
      Oh!
