Die Dead Enough

  • It's twilight and I wake up hot
    My body's soaked in a cold, cold sweat
    I reenact the lurid scenes
    And clawed engravings in my head

    Oh, I can't punch hard enough and I run
    I can't kick high enough and I run
    I can't shoot straight enough and I run
    I can't hold on enough and I run
    Oh, I can't stay down enough and I run
    I can't take pain enough and I run
    I can't bleed fast enough
    I can't die dead enough

    The air is thick, but the oxygen's thin
    My heart is beating like a drum, boom!
    And ice is flowing through my veins
    Explosives on my lips and in my lungs

    Oh, I can't punch hard enough and I run
    I can't kick high enough and I run
    I can't shoot straight enough and I run
    I can't hold on enough and I run
    Oh, I can't stay down enough and I run
    I can't take pain enough and I run
    I can't bleed fast enough
    I can't die dead enough

    I don't know what I'm running from
    And I don't know where I'm running to
    There's something deep and strange inside of me I see

    I don't know what I'm running from
    And I don't know where I'm running to
    Something's compelling me to run into the dark

    And now I am more driven than before
    And now I live just to settle score
    And now I feel the nearness of your breath
    Now I introduce you to your death
    Solo- Poland
    Solo- Mustaine
    Solo- Poland

    I am more driven than before
    I live just to settle score
    I feel the nearness of your breath
    I introduce you to your death
    I can't punch hard enough
    I can't kick high enough
    I can't shoot straight enough
    I can't hold on enough

    I can't stay down enough, die dead enough
    I can't take pain enough, die dead enough
    I can't bleed fast enough, die dead enough
    I can't die dead enough, die dead enough Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE
