This thing called life goes by so quickly
One day you're here and then you're gone
This is the moment I've lived my whole life for
And I'll never give up, I've waited too long

I've waited
Waited too long
I've waited too long

And all along, all the bodies left behind
May all have been good friends, just not good friends of mine

I've been kicked out and I said I quit
Then I said, "I had enough" and "This is it"
All I wanted was just one more show for the road
'Cause it was over last time before I could blink, I could blink

I've waited
Waited too long
I've waited too long

And all along, all the bodies left behind
May all have been good friends, just not good friends of mine
Their bodies left behind

    My InterpretationThis song talks about Mustaine's musical career and how Endgame is a victory over the rest of the metal scene and his "friends" who kicked him out last time. He's waited too long for this and while many other bands have come and gone, Megadeth remains constant while "all their bodies left behind".

    General CommentThis song and all of Endgame for that matter is great. The whole album is amazing. as for this song, it seems like it may be just simply saying to life life, cause it goes by quick, and once it's gone, it's gone. I'm sure theres more to it, and I could be ompletly off. But hey, no one else will comment ion it, so i figured i'd take a stab at it.
