Reckoning Day

  • I like the way that I make you itch
    And all the reasons I give you to bitch
    And how I make you wanna scream in pain
    And feel your life is just a losing game
    I like the way that you let me in
    The way you look when the walls cave it
    I like the way that your stomach knots
    And how you cry for it all to stop
    I like the way that you fool yourself
    And make believe there's nobody else
    I like the way that you stand in line
    And beg salvation from the empty skies

    Don't want no revenge
    Ain't no pay back time
    It ain't called getting even
    Here comes the Reckoning Day

    I like the things that you try to fake
    And your face when I see you break
    And that you say you will pray for me
    You realize you are prey for me
    I like the way you stay on attack
    No matter what, I keep coming back
    And how you try to hold me down
    But you end up driven to the ground

    Don't want no revenge
    Ain't no pay back time
    It ain't called getting even
    Here comes the Reckoning

    Don't want no revenge (don't want no revenge)
    Ain't no pay back time (ain't no pay back time)
    It ain't called getting even (it ain't called getting even)
    Here comes the Reckoning (Here comes the Reckoning)
    Day, here comes the Reckoning
    Here comes the Reckoning day
    Here comes the Reckoning day
    Here comes the Reckoning day
    Here comes the Reckoning here comes the Reckoning day
    here comes, is coming Writer/s: Dave Ellefson, Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Martin Friedman, Marty Friedman, Nick Menza
