"Captive Honour" as written by and Dave/menza Mustaine....
Madness comes, and madness goes
An insane place, with insane moves
Battles without, for battles within
Where evil lives and evil rules
Breaking them up, just breaking them in
Quickest way out, quickest relief wins
Never disclose, never betray
Cease to speak or cease to breathe
And when you kill a man, you're a murderer
Kill many, and you're a conqueror
Kill them all, oh you're a god

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict?
Yes, we have you honor
We find the defendant guilty on all counts for crimes
Against all humanity
By virtue of the jury's decision and the power vested in me by the state,
I hereby sentence you to be incarcerated with no possibility of parole,
for life
Life? whale' ya' mean life? I ain't got a life!
Boy, your soul better belong to Jesus,'cause your ass belongs to me

Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

No time for questions
No time for games
Start kicking ass
And taking down the names
A long shit list
A shorter fuse
He is untouchable
And guarantees you'll lose
Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

Inside the bighouse
His nightmare unfolds
Before he got there
His manpussy was sold
Black blanket welcome
This tough guy's now a bitch
Praying for death
It can't be worse than this

Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

Captive honour, ain't no honour

    General CommentThis song rocks, I love how it starts slow then rocks harder as it comes to the end. I also like how he talks with the judge during the song. This is one of megadeths greats!

    General CommentThis song deserves more comments. IT KICKS ASS.
    The riff after "With no possibility of parole, for life" is one of Megadeth's best.

    General CommentOK,

    Off the cuff as I recall.
    This is about a criminal, French guy in a prison in France????
    Basically he wasted his life for his crime. It is no honor to be in prison, it is no honor to be a captive. So grow a brain and don’t be a cult follower of some dip shit criminal. It is not an honor to rot in jail for a crime.
