"Addicted to Chaos" as written by Marty Friedman, Nick Menza, Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson....
Only yesterday they told me you were gone
All these normal people, will I find another one?
Monkey on my back, aching in my bones
I forgot you said one day you'll walk alone
I said I need you, does that make me wrong?
Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong?
My heart was blackened, it's bloody red
A hole in my heart, a hole in my head!

Who will help me up?
Where's the helping hand?
Will you turn on me?
Is this my final stand?

In a dream I cannot see
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil builds in me
I'm addicted, addicted to chaos

Light shined on my path
Turn bad days into good
Turn breakdowns into blocks,
I smashed 'em 'cause I could
My brain was labored, my head would spin
Don't let me down, don't give up, don't give in
The rain comes down, cold wind blows
The plans we made are back up on the road
Turn up my collar, welcome the unknown
Remember that you said
One day you'll walk alone

Who will help me up?
Where's the helping hand?
Will you turn on me?
Is this my final stand?

In a dream I cannot see
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil builds in me
I'm addicted to chaos

Who will help me up?
Where's the helping hand?
Will you turn on me?
Is this my final stand?

In a dream I cannot see (in a dream I cannot see)
Tangled abstract fallacy (tangled abstract fallacy)
Random turmoil builds in me (random turmoil builds in me)
Bills bills bills
In a dream I cannot see (in a dream I cannot see)
Tangled abstract fallacy (tangled abstract fallacy)
Random turmoil builds in me (random turmoil builds in me)
I'm addicted, addicted to the chaos
Addicted, addicted, to chaos, chaos
Addicted to chaos, chaos

    General CommentThis one is about a guy who mentored Dave Mustaine during one of his trips to rehab. The man had been clean and sober for years and then relapsed one time and ovedosed, which killed him.

    General CommentI hate to relate everything to a woman, but, that, along with being 30 and a failure at life in general, are all I can relate to. So, I met my SoulMate and, needless to say, it went sour. I never jelled with anyone like that. She taught me alot about what needed to be changed in my life. She taught me how to love and forgive unconditionally. She brought me closer to Jesus and understanding his ways. But she turned out to be one of the most evil ruthless people I have ever met in my life. It has been a long time since it has been over and I still have not found anyone that shows me the way or that completes me the way she did. I love Dave Mustaines music. It has seved my life plenty of times.

    General CommentThis site is about what a song means to you, cherrychew22, even though you're probably long gone and won't be reading this. Let the man speak his mind.

    General CommentFrom the realms of deth:
    "In this song, the speaker loses someone very close to him, a dear friend who helped him through some very difficult times and was pretty much the only constant thing in his life. The speaker has been warned of this day, but he is still unprepared for it. He wonders about his chances of every finding anyone else like that in the world, and even contemplates suicide. In the final verse of the song, he becomes enlightened and realizes that this is simply another challenge in a life full of challenges. He gets his head together and goes out to face the world alone, once again."

    GhostOfWar I think you may be right. But I personally think this song means what you want it to mean. That's the beauty of a lot of megadeth songs.

    General CommentThe song is about loosing someone who has been helping you out alot. At the end of the 2nd verse its about relising you can go on by yourself. Great song
