Album: Cryptic Writings (1997)

  • Looking for a cure within the human race
    Eliminate the poor, how much longer will it take
    Burning up the tents of the rank and file
    Exterminate their lives, crack a demon smile
    Crushing down, caving in our will to live
    Getting rid of man's mistakes
    To take a lost life, lock it up, break it down
    How much more can we take
    Fight for freedom, fight authority
    Fight for anything, my country tis' of me
    Cry for absolution, it's not the end for me
    A last minute pardon, one final reprieve
    Resist the war machine, don't get in its path
    Fight to die a free man and reap the aftermath
    Crushing down, caving in our will to live
    Getting rid of man's mistakes
    To take a lost life, lock it up, break it down
    I don't know how much more I can take
    Fight!... It's my country

  • Cillian from Cork, IrelandThe main riff in this song is very similar to the one of Motorbreath.
  • Jeff from Vancouver, CanadaI hate Megadeath but I saw "FFF" and thought "Hmm...Only a tired-ass old-man band like them would think that is subtle and remotely cool. Thus; the 6th letter of the alphabet is [you guessed it...] 'F'.

    How predictable.
