99 Ways to Die

Megadeth  Buy  License   

If I see the morning hours
I'll have one more yesterday Take life from tomorrow 'Cause I've burned out my today
If I get up to the top I know
I'll just go back downhill Gotta' terminal future
And it's time to write my will

Down another glass of courage And a shot of Thorazine
We're not ready to see you yet
99 ways to die
We're not ready to see you yet

Gotta' short between the earphones Wringing my hands in dismay A more efficient maniac
With two feet in the grave
Ain't got no last words to say Yellow streak right up my spine The gun in my mouth was real
And the taste blew my mind

In a black tie and straight jacket
Man I'm gonna try again
We're not ready to see you yet
99 ways to die
We're not ready to see you yet
Demitasse of arsenic Try on this tie Never mind the tree
There is only death and danger In the sockets of my eyes
A playground of illusion No one plays they only die

There's a prison in my mind
And the bars are gonna break
I'm as mad as a hatter And strung out just the same
Taunting rigor mortis I feel it draw me in
