"Sweating Bullets (Anxiety Edit)" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
Hello me, meet the real me
And my misfit's way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possession
Hindsight is always 20-20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Nice story, tell it to Reader's Digest!

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me and
My air is getting thin
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm chomping at the bit and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets

Hello me, it's me again
You can subdue but never tame me
It gives me a migraine headache
Sinking down to your level
Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance
Mankind has got to know
His limitations

Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm sharpening the axe and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets

Well, me, it's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Some day you too will know my pain
And smile its blacktooth grin
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I come again

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands
And I don't know where I've been

Once you committed me
Now you've acquitted me
Claiming validity
For your stupidity
I'm chomping at the bit
I'm sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa
Sweating bullets

    General CommentI believe this was the time when Dave was hit with crack cocaine, & heavy use of it, he was chomping at a bit cause he realized it's never enough, felling chlaustorphobic, thinking true friends or enemies is the felling after the use. 20/20 vision when it hits your mind your eyes widen seeing more than natural, crossing over to spirits haunting you placing fear that brings schizophrenia, his hands with blood from pushing the glass pipe he broke & slit his hands. Sharpening the axe is cleaning the pipe & breaks up the piled cards of stuck cocaine inside the pipe he's cleaning to continue this crusade getting even more higher. And in closing lyrics I've committed him, & acquitted, my accusations valid for looking & acting stupidly. But closer to ending lyrics he's @ it again, starting all over once again :-P
