  • Who'd believe with the way things are here
    We'd be going anywhere telling people how to live?
    Who's believe we'd spend more shippin' drugs and guns
    Than to educate our sons? Sorry but that's what they did
    I can't help but think,
    Someone's forsaken you and me
    Luck deserted me and the truth beat out my brains
    Men rise on stepping stones of their selves to higher things
    I've stepped over many bodies on my way
    Thanks for the information don't need no more anything
    We are the damned of all the world with sadness in our hearts
    The wounded of the wars, we've been hung out to dry
    You didn't want us anyway and now we're making up our minds
    You tell us how to run our lives, we run for Youthanasia Writer/s: DAVE ELLEFSON, DAVE MUSTAINE, DAVID ELLEFSON, MARTIN FRIEDMAN, MARTY FRIEDMAN, NICK MENZA

  • Dick from Telford, PaThis album cover, and the video for Train Of Consequences earned Megadeth a whole lot of angry letters when they first came out. It was one of the first to use computer graphics that actually could pass as real. Some people actually believed that those were actual babies used in the shots and complained about child abuse.
  • Jello from Sarnia, CanadaYouthansias album cover is really original, and the main riff is really crushing, this was the first album I got along with hidden treasures...
