  • Madness comes, and madness goes
    An insane place, with insane moves
    Battles without, for battles within
    Where evil lives and evil rules
    Breaking them up, just breaking them in
    Quickest way out, quickest relief wins
    Never disclose, never betray
    Cease to speak or cease to breathe
    And when you kill a man, you're a murderer
    Kill many, and you're a conqueror
    Kill them all, oh you're a god

    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict?
    Yes, we have you honor
    We find the defendant guilty on all counts for crimes
    Against all humanity
    By virtue of the jury's decision and the power vested in me by the state,
    I hereby sentence you to be incarcerated with no possibility of parole,
    for life
    Life? whale' ya' mean life? I ain't got a life!
    Boy, your soul better belong to Jesus,'cause your ass belongs to me

    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    Captive honour, ain't no honour

    No time for questions
    No time for games
    Start kicking ass
    And taking down the names
    A long shit list
    A shorter fuse
    He is untouchable
    And guarantees you'll lose
    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    Captive honour, ain't no honour

    Inside the bighouse
    His nightmare unfolds
    Before he got there
    His manpussy was sold
    Black blanket welcome
    This tough guy's now a bitch
    Praying for death
    It can't be worse than this

    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    Captive honour, ain't no honour

    Captive honour, ain't no honour Writer/s: DAVE ELLEFSON, DAVE MUSTAINE, MARTY FRIEDMAN, NICK MENZA

  • Shantell from Tijuana, MexicoYeah,it´s a good tune.Mustaine was inspired by a story told by his terapist,back in 1990 about this little kids being ued and abused in prision
  • Nicole from Manchedter, NhWhen he says "...kill them all ur a god..." Is that a stab at or a big fu to METALLICA, or am I imagining things.
  • Phil from Melbourne, Australialove this song great lyrics and great album, love the bit that says "before he got there his manpussy was sold". and the way dave sings the "sold" bit with venom is a nice touch
  • Chris from Yorktown, VaAnother whopper by megadeth. Good, clear message. A nice hardcore thrash song.

    " No time for questions,
    No Time For Gamnes"
    Start Kicking Ass,
    And taking down the Names"
  • Nick Lamb from Sarnia, CanadaIn the song, you can hear a judge sentancing the murderer inprisonment...for life, then Nick Menza (Drummer) says "Life?!? I Ain't Got A Life!" It is hillarious
