"Black Dahlia" as written by Frank Joseph Bello, Charlie L. Benante, John Robert Bush and Scott Ian Rosenfeld....
Hardcase
Fist full of brass
Double barreled pistons and a tank full of gas
He's a heavyweight
Enforcer inside
Like a man in the chair he's gonna go for a ride
Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him, watch him drown
Against lightning
The wind from his sails
Take on a man who's harder than a coffin nail
Priceless, the look on his face
If you look real close you can see the expiration date
Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him, watch him drown
Black Dahlia's in my head
Ice veined
Thousand yard stare
Breaking a man is like hunting for bear
And I'm loaded
Setting the trap
Tighten the noose
And bust a rat with my sap
Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him, watch him drown
Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head
Confession's good for the soul
Black Dahlia's in my head
In this hunt I walk alone

    General CommentI think it is about being worn down to the point that you would do anything.

    The name is probably a referance to the so called "Black Dahlia murder", where an actress was found in a quarry, chopped in half. The prime suspect apparently confessed to the killing after being interogated and worn down for hours, but evidence later proved he could not have done it, then loads of people started confessing to it. At least 50 people have confessed to her murder.

    General CommentThat makes sense, but I'm going to add something.

    It appears to me, that it's from the investigators perspective. Being broken down by the case, and breaking the suspects, and getting nowhere.

    (New movie based on this case)
