Megadeth - The System Has Failed

Megadeth - The System Has Failed lyrics

1. Blackmail The Universe

This is breaking news
It appears air force one was shot down
Somewhere over the Middle East this morning
By a sleeper cell of rouge terrorists, firing a stinger missile
The pilot and all passengers are unaccounted for
The presidents whereabouts are presently unknown
And he is presumed missing
The vice president, secretary of state
And principles of the military are assembling
Our nation stands at DEFCON 3

The greatest crisis, will someone come for me?
I "red, white and blew it. "
Unleashed revenge, my body is detained
How could anybody do this?
Betrayal, I peel away the days
Medals are useless. Uncle Sam's forgotten me
I'm not important no one will ever come
I'll never be fund, god get me out of this hell.

Nuclear battlefields energised
Cold wars are heating up again
The tensions mounting
People lift up your fists in revenge

The stage is set
Who will be the first to blink?
We can go to war
Remember that "Vietnam thing"
Peace at any price

With a gun to your head, bang, bang
Weakness runs in your family
What runs in mine is death
The world of metal changed forever
Back in the day

Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand

Live to die and die to play
Every day and place
Leave a path of metal
Across the world from stage to stage

Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand
[Solo - Poland]

In denim and leather
We were all part of one force
Knocked rock and roll on its ass
And put metal on the course

Higher
[Solo - Poland]
Higher
[Solo - Mustaine]
Higher
[Solo - Poland]
Higher
[Solo - Mustaine]
Back in the day
[Solo - Mustaine]
You weren't there
[Solo - Mustaine]
It doesn't matter
[Solo - Mustaine]
Because you wouldn't understand

This is our way of life
A life that was born free
To fellow orders how to live
Was never meant to be
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Peals of thunder, sheets of lightening
The power hits the stage
The music was exciting
The mania raged
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

We all had the fever
Our ears started to ring
Feeding the wildfire
Consuming everything
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Metals king back then
Still to this day
Others imitate or challenge
But it never goes away
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

8. Something That I'm Not

Your mind tells you that you've lost your confidence
You're drifting and ya don't believe in anyone
To lose what little you have left to be proud of
Afraid you can't do this again, ah!

You said that nothing can come in-between us
The way of getting things we wanted done
Then enissophobia held you under its influence
Until you compromised your style
[Solo - Mustaine]

Everything about you has been one big charade
What will you do now the wells run dry? Cry?
To sell out all your friends and stab them in the back
Its something that you are; something that I'm not

When you forced me into doing what you love
Mark my words no one loves you very much, yeah mark em
And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me
I couldn't help but end just hating you, hmm!

Being a fraud can only last so long, you should know
Till what ya sensed as a child returns, you little baby
To choke out the voice that told ya "money and fame"
Would fill the crater that you dug for yourself
[Solo - Mustaine]

Unlike you I'm no vision to myself, lest you forget
You didn't ever make metal, buddy; metal made you
To crush and run over everyone along the way
It's something that you are; its something that I'm not

A stranger to yourself, ha! Ya pissed me off again
I won't be driven by your needs anymore
What you'd become to do or be is clear to see for me
It's something that you are; its something that I'm not
[Solo - Mustaine]

it makes me sick to hear you say you "love me"
I know you only love what I can do for you
If you were the one that was leading the charge
Would you notice if I missed a day or two? But that's impossible!

We all laughed at the parodies that you'd become
Now your pain slowly paid back has begun
So, accept my resignation, or in your words "betrayal"
Before it gets much worse, end this self-sabotage
[Solo -Mustaine]

Something I'm not, something that you are, something that I'm not
[Solo - Mustaine]

Something I'm not, something that you are, something that I'm not
Something that you are, something that I'm not, yet

9. Truth Be Told

This is the first tale of death in the world
When Cain struck down Abel, a family broken
Since then mankind's dominated his own kind
To insult and injure, there's no such thing as peace
Till dead do us part, till the last

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - hells open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground
All around

The battle aint over without spoils of war
Just cause it is written doesn't make it so
When you dance with the devil wait till the songs over
I ask myself, "How bad do I want you to live?"
My anger is near, till the last

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - hells open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground
All around
[Solo - Mustaine]
[Solo - Mustaine[

Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard
Still you just go on your way
Head in the sand, ignoring the rain
Just like the food in Noah's day
In his day
[Solo - Mustaine]

Can't punish those for ruining the earth
Its suicide to some degree
Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin
There will be no peace, never for you and me
[Solo - Mustaine]

Before al qaeda and bin ladin
Long before hitler and hussein
Ever since the first murder was commited
The verdicts always been the same
Been the same, wrong!
[Solo - Mustaine]

The cursed future just repeats the past
There's hell to pay and stones to cast
So, there will be no peace, never peace
Till the last truth be told by you and me
[Solo - Mustaine]

10. Of Mice And Men

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

Back when I was just seventeen
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
To be a rising star that only gleamed
But all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me

I was legal now at twenty-one
I knew the world should run
My God just look what I had done
Simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends, but I found none
All alone at twenty-one
[Solo - Poland]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men
[Solo - fills Poland]

At twenty-five I was surprised
That I was even half-alive
Somehow I managed to survive
I felt my body doing time
And in my back a hundred knives
From my friends at twenty-five

And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life, if you would sell
A year or two if less compelled
So live your life and live it well
There's not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell
[Solo - Poland]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men
[Solo - fills Poland]
[Solo - Mustaine]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men
[Solo - fills Poland]

11. Shadow of Deth

Auxilium meum a domino

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever
[Solo - Mustaine]

12. My Kingdom Come

The flag that I once planted as a king I abandoned
And now I reclaim this banner by god, my sword, and my name
In a truce sealed by blood within this metal skin and all that I own
Blood, bone, and courage in my veins, and the heart that pumps it

Drink from the chalice and be reborn
And the land with me, it will change and transform

A fighting, am sworn to the quest it is doom of man that they forget
I have awoken the dragon and all around me the mist of his breath
God and evil, there never is one without the other, his brother
Always there where I least expect it, it will burn me to cinders

The futures taken root in the present sun
Don't look into my heart into my heart, least of all your own
[Solo - Poland]

No man who is false can win in combat against the truth
When he lies he murders some part of the world,
We must find out what was lost
Hearth and home, wife and child were not for me, I was not yet done
I never knew how empty my soul was until it was refilled

Mad distemper strikes both beggars and kings
The necromancer's hard teachings of war and quest

I am given the right to bear arms and power to meet justice

I have lived through others for far to long,
And carried my guilt, my causes, my sins
I hope in the hereafter when I owe no more to the future
That I can be just a man
