Megadeth – Guns, Drugs & Money

Mustainen näkemys USA:n ja Meksikon välisestä huumesodasta.

“Drinking cold cerveza in a boiling hot saloon
Chasing shots of tequila, just about high noon
Outside Nuevo Laredo, deep in no man’s land
Become a killer or be killed; face down in the Rio Grande

Poverty will turn the life of any good man bad
All love and mercy ever learned, he’ll soon forget what he had

Guns, drugs and money under the Mexican sky
Guns, drugs and money; pick your poison or you die
Guns, drugs and money; a pistol pressed to his head
Choose silver and you’re rich; you die if you choose lead

He had a suitcase full of money, plenty of ammo for his gun
The sweat rolls down his dirty face, his plans have all come undone
It’s just a matter of time, no matter how he tries
He hears “Plata O Plomo, Gringo?” the last words before he dies

Poverty will turn the life of any good man bad
All love and mercy ever learned, he’ll soon forget what he had

Guns, drugs and money under the Mexican sky
Guns, drugs and money; pick your poison or you die
Guns, drugs and money; a pistol pressed to his head
Choose silver and you’re rich; you die if you choose lead”

Megadeth – Use the Man

Tässä lauletaan hyvin pitkälti Mustainen omasta heroiiniriippuvuudesta.

“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 “

Megadeth – Mary Jane

“Forgive me father for I have sinned
I’m a child of the air, I’m a witch of the wind
Fingers gripped around my brain
No control, my mind is lame
I’m in the astral plane, and I’ll never be the same
Never, never, never, never, never, never
Never, never, never”

Usein Mary Jane viittaa marihuanaa ja tämässäkin kappaleessa voi nähdä viittauksia siihen suuntaan.
