I'll Get Even

Album: Cryptic Writings (1997)
  • Revenge is a common theme in Megadeth songs, and "I'll Get Even" is another that takes on the topic. A group composition, the song looks at the emotional state of the one looking for vengeance; he's clearly unhinged:

    I'm like a bomb that's ticking
    I got voices in my head


    In our interview with bass player Dave Ellefson, he said the song is "speaking about a revengeful heart."
