"Bullet to the Brain" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
No one knows what draws the moth to the flame
And nothing costs as much as playing the game
She had to know, know, know, he'd give love for sex
He had to know, know, know, she'd give sex for love

The taste, touching his tongue, sweet to his lips
Poison, now penetrating deeper
Betrayed by just one bite, for just one night
To find forbidden fruit tastes sweeter

Just like pressing a loaded gun to your head
One knows only the spider can navigate its web
She had to know, know, know, he'd get what he wants
He had to know, know, know, she'd get what she needs

Soon under the spell, emotions are high
Mind control penetrating deeper
The hex was cast on him, all he believes
Now is forbidden fruit tastes sweeter

She had to know, know, know, he'd win at the start
He had to know, know, know, she'd win in the end

His one last thought blew his mind, bullet to the brain
Hot lead was penetrating deeper
Just one reckless shot squeezed from the hand
That knows forbidden fruit tastes sweeter

    My InterpretationI firmly believe this song is about Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. How she seduced him , offering sex in exchange for love, and thus a lifestyle of the rich and famous. He tasted her forbidden fruit, and was driven to the edge of insanity as a result.......ultimately leading to self-inflicted "bullet to the brain"
