"Burning Bridges" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
You give up on yourself
Somehow you got betrayed again
Thin ice and luck runs out
Who will you blame it on this time?

Due to lack of interest in you
At the light at the end of the tunnel
Was turned off
And something I noticed
Beating you is thrilling me
I've got a secret for you

If you took your own direction
If only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice
You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

Don't close your eyes to injustice
Listen, being brave ain't chicken shit
A man without any valor
Has nothing worth living for

Due to lack of interest in you
At the light at the end of the tunnel
Was turned off
And something I noticed
Beating you is thrilling me
I've got a secret for you

If you took your own direction
If only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice
You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

If you took your own direction
If only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice
You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

If you took your own direction
If only you practice what you preach
If you follow your advice
You wouldn't be burning bridges all the time

    General CommentThis song is basically me in a nutshell. I don't take my own direction, I don't practice my teachings, and I ultimately end up losing touch with people. And this song is Dave telling a person, "Get up off of your sorry ass and make something of yourself. Get some direction, and don't blame anyone but yourself for your mistakes." I personally love this song, one of my favorite Megadeth songs.
