"I'll Get Even" as written by Sterling Campbell, Warren Cuccurullo, Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor....
I'm lonely and abandoned
Washed up, left for dead
I'm lost inside the desert
Of every word you said
Like a nuclear reactor
Or TNT
I'm thinking about the times
When you lied to me
All the innuendo
Caught up on your hook
I was just a name
In your little black book
Ah, I'll get even with you
I'm bitter and I'm twisted
I haven't slept in days
I'm lonely and I'm angry
I can't make it go away
I'm like a bomb that's ticking
I got voices in my head
I got a doll with needles in
Wishing you were dead
I'll get you back somehow
That's what I'm gonna do
I'll get you back somehow
Your nightmare coming true
Ah, I'll get even with you
Ah, that's what I'm gonna do
Gonna get even with you
You better look behind you
'Cause there I'm gonna be
I'll be standing in the shadows
With who I used to be
He's slightly schizophrenic
Me and me and me and me agree
That you are gonna pay
For what you did to me
Ah, I'll get even with you
Gonna get even with you
Ah, that's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna...
Ah, I'll get even with you

    General Commentto me, it seems like Dave is talking about yet another bad relationship. he's just saying that he was scared for life by someone and he'll get back at them no matter what it takes. maybe this be about metallica or a girl, who knows.

    General CommentI agree.. It would be obvious to say it's Metallica.
    Even though this
    "I was just a name
    In your little black book"
    Seems more like a girl than the band. Seem too slutty

    General CommentAccording to Mustaine, the title is the subject: getting even. It's too bad the song is kind of watered-down.

    General CommentI think it's about some girl breaking up with him and then he goes crazy (me and me and me agree) and he just wants to get back at her.
