"Tornado Of Souls" as written by and Dave/ellefson Mustaine....
This morning I made the call
The one that ends it all
Hanging up,I wanted to cry
But dammit,this well's gone dry
Not for the money,not for the fame
Not for the power,just no more games

But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado
I can't replace the lies,that let a 1000 days ago
No more living trapped inside
In her way I'll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away

You'll grow to loathe my name
You'll hate me just the same
You won't need your breath
And soon you'll meet your death
Not from the years, not from the use
Not from the tears, just self abuse

But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado
I can't replace the lies,that let a 1000 days ago
No more living trapped inside
In her way I'll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away


Who's to say,
What's for me to say
Who's to say
What's for me to be
Who's to say
What's for me to do
Cause a big nothing it'll be for me

The land of opportunity
The golden chance for me
My future looks so bright
Now I think I've seen the light

Can't say what's on my mind
Can't do what I really feel
In this bed I made for me
Is where I sleep,I really feel

I warn you of the fate
Proven true to late
Your tongue twist perverse
Come drink now of this curse

And now I fill your brain
I spin you round again
My poison fills your head
As I tuck you into bed

You feel my fingertips
You won't forget my lips
You'll feel my cold breath
It's the kiss of death

    General CommentMustaine agrees that Friedman's solo is a great one. Friedman said in 2002: "When I finished the solo to this one, Mustaine came into the studio, listened to it down once, turned around and without saying a word, shook my hand. It was at that moment that I felt like I was truly the guitarist for this band."

    General Comment"'Tornado of Souls' is about me getting out of a dysfunctional relationship. It has nothing to do with killing anybody." (Mustaine, 1993)

    General CommentThis song is about someone breaking up with their partner, only to kill them through regret.
