"Disconnect"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


Behind closed doors all you live for is taking
That double life of yours has left your whole world shaking
Who are you fooling? I know you hear the laughter
Don't you hear people talking? What is it that your after?
Turn off your conscience, leave the world outside
Nothing at all can ever make you feel
That anything's so real so you just - Disconnect
The key to save yourself if for nothing else
A tongue can never hold the truth of silence is golden
With a broken heart underneath all of the pain
Do you stroke the pretty scars? The hurt never ends
Turn off your conscience, leave the world outside
Nothing at all can ever make you feel
That anything's so real so you just - Disconnect
Turn off your conscience, leave the world outside
Nothing at all can ever make you feel
That anything's so real so you just - Disconnect
Turn off your conscience, leave the world outside
Nothing at all can ever make you feel
That anything's so real so you just - Disconnect


"The World Needs A Hero"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


An Iron fist quietly sits inside the Velvet Glove
Take control, untouchable just like God above
I can't escape, wrapped in red tape, what will become of me?
If I object, then I defect my country 'tis of thee
The White House is calling, tell them I'll call them back
Just tell them anything, yeah get them off my back
The world needs a hero
Not that I would ever lie but I have no choice
Words I say heard today are not mine, just my voice
NATO is on line 1, they want to talk to me
Tell them that I'm not in, tell them that I'm not free
The world needs a hero
Phantom rule, the hidden jewel who's really in control?
On puppet strings, a nation swings undermined by moles
The UN is on hold, tell them I'll call them back
Yeah tell them anything, just get them off my back
The world needs a hero
Dave the White House is calling, they want to talk to me
Tell them that I can't be bought, tell them that I'm not free
The world needs a hero


"Moto Psycho"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


Responsibility, an anchor around my neck
Dependability, made me a nervous wreck
Accountability, I live from check to check
Volatility, neglect and no respect
Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"
One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again
Moto Psycho, going nowhere everybody is a
Moto Psycho, move it or lose it baby
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho, I'm a Moto Psycho, Moto Psycho
You know you can't resist to tell me what I mean
You gave my mind a twist said that I was unclean
The actor runs the play and ad-libs in between
You're all that I resent my thoughts were so obscene
Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"
One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again
Moto Psycho, going nowhere everybody is a
Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho
One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again
Moto Psycho, going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho
Going nowhere move it or lose it baby Moto Psycho
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour Moto Psycho
Where I'm headed I don't know but I'm shoving off and I hit the road
Going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho - time and time and time again I'm a Moto Psycho
Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby, going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho


"1,000 Times Goodbye"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


The tides of change pulled us apart, I feel a familiar pain
It seems like years since we've loved or even liked and that's a lonely way to be
Drifting alone in a sea of agony, your face I can't recognize
Don't make this hard on us, I will miss you if you just go away
I did no right you did no wrong, nothing left but wasted days
I regret you leaving, but I will never take you back
You know what? It's over, I just don't feel the same way as I used to
We've been together forever, but it's over
Goodbye 1000 times goodbye, the thought never crossed my mind
That this would be my last goodbye, let me put pennies on your eyes
And kiss your lips one last goodbye, my love 1000 times goodbye
It seems nothing good is free, a good thing cost much more than the price
You were good but not that good, don't kid yourself now it's time to break up
Drifting alone in a sea of agony, your face I can't recognize
Don't make this hard on us, I will miss you if you just go away
I did no right you did no wrong, nothing left but wasted days
I regret you leaving, but I'll never take you back
Don't call me anymore. It's just noté I don't feel the same way about you
Its not as good as it used to be
Goodbye 1000 times goodbye, the thought never crossed my mind
That this would be my last goodbye, let me put pennies on your eyes
And kiss your lips one last goodbye, my love 1000 times goodbye
I'll always love you but just not like that, like what?
I want to be honest with you I met someone else, you did what?
And I really, I really love him like I used to love you
Remember the time that I told you that I was going out of town for business?
Well I went to see him, You know what? You suck!
Goodbye 1000 times, you'll always have a special place
In my heart you know that, it's just I can't be with you anymore it's over
Goodbye 1000 times, things may not work out with him
Goodbye 1000 times and if they don't
Goodbye 1000 times, then I'll certainly call you
Goodbye 1000 times, you mean a lot to me
I still really want to be friends with you
I love you like you're my brother


"Burning Bridges"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


You give up on yourself, somehow you got betrayed again
Thin ice and luck runs out, who will you blame it on this time?
Due to lack of interest in you, the light at the end of the tunnel
Was turned off and something I noticed
Beating you is thrilling me, I've got a secret for you
If you took your own direction, if only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice, you wouldn't be burning bridges all the time
Don't close your eyes to injustice, listen, being brave ain't chicken shit
A man without any valor has nothing worth living for
Due to lack of interest in you, the light at the end of the tunnel
Was turned off and something I noticed
Beating you is thrilling me, I've got a secret for you
If you took your own direction, if only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice, you wouldn't be burning bridges all the time
If you took your own direction, if only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice, you wouldn't be burning bridges all the time
If you took your own direction, if only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice, you wouldn't be burning bridges all the time


"Promises"
m. Dave Mustaine and Al Pitrelli
l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


Two hearts that shouldn't talk to each other become close
In a town much like a prison cell
People speak our names on the street in hushed tones
Oh the stories they'd tell, if anyone would listen
You come from a town where people don't bother saying hello
Unless somebody's born or dies
And I come from a place where they drag your hopes through the mud
Because their own dreams are all dying
And when we walk down the street, the wind sings our name in rebel songs
The sounds of the night should make us anxious, but it's much to late when the fear is gone
I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you, I promise, I promise
There's so many fighting to get past the Pearly Gates
But nobody ever wants to die or get saved
Their intentions aren't that good and I can smell the asphalt
That's their personal road to hell being paved
And when we walk down the street, the wind sings our name in rebel songs
But it's much to late when the fear is gone
I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you, I promise, I promise
I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you, I promise, I promise


"Recipe For Hate...Warhorse"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


Each day my shortcomings pick my pockets, my faults were letters carved in stone
As meaningful to you as words written in water, I'm left to walk this world alone
In a broken mold they made me, the black sheep of the family
Worth less than zero my opinion and room temperature IQ
I did something, now I'm nothing, always wrong with this or that
Poisoned with fear watch it twist, my measly brain mad
Talk about me when my bac is turned, next time we meet it will be to late
The memory burned in my ears of what you said and now I've got a recipe for hate. Taste it
Dark clouds on the horizon, make it hard to breathe
A walking mistake but every time, I run away, I just come back for more
The choice is clear I can quit and fall on my sword or light a fire
To see who runs or stays and plays the confidence game
I'm feeling quite invisible, I feel just like thin air, the truth taunts me
I see the earth below me, I watch it spinning there
Does someone, somewhere out there hear me?
Sentenced to walk in Purgatory, my life is running down
I can't believe what they've done to me
I'm left riding a Warhorse, a man without a country


"Losing My Senses"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


One man speaking the truth, no one likes when it fits
So we tell soothing lies and betray our own lips
The uncivilized world and its people decay
Once sweet breeze is defiled, sucking our breath away
Yesterday's answers has nothing to do with today's questions
Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived forwards
I'm losing my senses, I'm losing my senses
We watch as the living all die, contemplating if we should ever open our eyes
If all that we touch keeps turning to sand
We will cease to exist till the last living man
Yesterday's answers has nothing to do with today's questions
Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived forward
Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived forward
I'm losing my senses
Yesterday's answers has nothing to do with today's questions
Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived forwards
Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived forwards


"Silent Scorn"

Instrumental

"Return To Hangar"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


Welcome to an empty fortress, a mighty wreck that once was proud
Ate alive by oxidation, abandoned by a crew of cowards
Navigation systems failed, computers crashed and they all fall down
Possibly I've seen too much, Hangar 18 I know too much
All the guilty paid the price, suspended by their broken necks
No one survived to tell the story, when foreign life forms resurrect
And military intelligence is still two words that can't make sense
Possibly I've seen too much, Hangar 18 I know too much


"When"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


No hears a word I say and my prayers are never answered
But you'll never see the pain inside of me
Stabbing me over and over and over
I trusted you and I loved you and you spit back in my face
How could you do this to me?
When will you stop trying to hurt me?
I've walked a minefield for you, a career in hell with you
I have made it through the things others would surely die just watching
And the oath I take on this day is to know that you will be repaid
One day the the sun will die and the night will crawl
Until then, until I see your world implode
I wish you death and suffering, misery to spare
Time to release your pain, face the last enemy
I am the last thing you will know, the last thing you will see
I see your death surrounding me, I know you, yes I do, I know you
When no words are spoken and please are ignored
Your tears go unnoticed, will you say enough?
When prayers are unanswered and your calls are unheard
The pain cuts right through you, have you seen enough?
It all seems so deceitful and the verdict is lies
A black cloud of indecision compromised your life
When judgement has failed you, when your own heart's impaled you
Your wandering mind has destroyed you, will you ever know when?
When you give everything and the feeling is gone
All the giving is fake, did you fake enough?
When you take everything and you stay too long
When there's nothing left, did you take enough?
It all seems so deceitful and the verdict is lies
A black cloud of indecision compromised your life
When judgement has failed you, when your own heart's impaled you
Your wandering mind has destroyed you, will you ever know when?


"Coming Home"
m. and l. Dave Mustaine
The World Needs A Hero (2001)


And today, I leave you, but I'll be back someday
And as I fly away, my hope is that we'll meet again
I'm off to my home, I'm away from home
I will miss you but I know, I know you know
I'm coming home to Arizona, I'm coming home to Arizona
I'll take you everywhere I go, I'll show you everything I see
And as we say, "So long", I know your tears wish me well
It won't be long till I'm back again
We will meet again, we will meet again, you will see, oh
I'm coming home to Arizona, I'm coming home
