Sweating Bullets Lyrics

Hello me...Meet the real me.
And my misfits way of life.
A dark black past is my
Most valued possession.
Hindsight is always 20-20,
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy.
Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Nice story...Tell it to Reader's Digest!!!
Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me, and
My air is getting thin.
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet.
I'm chomping at the bit, and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

Hello me...It's me again.
You can subdue, but never tame me.
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level.
Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance.
Mankind has got to know
His limitations.

Feeling claustrophobic,
Like the walls are closing in.
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been.
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet.
I'm sharpening the axe and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

Well, me...it's nice talking to myself,
A credit to dementia.
Some day you too will know my pain,
And smile its blacktooth grin.
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead.
My icy fingers claw your back,
Here I come again.

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic,
Like the walls are closing in.
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been
Once you committed me
Now you've acquitted me
Claiming validity
For your stupidity
I'm chomping at the bit
I'm sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa!
Sweating bullets

Schizophrenia is different than split personalities.

1st of all N0 C0DE 79 you can suck my left testical 2nd ive loved Led Zeppelin since i was 5 and i love megadeth and theirs really no reason to call down a great band 3rd of all metallica can suck my right testical and then you and metallica could suck on my middle testical if i had one. and lastly if you had a true appreciation you wouldnt call 80's hair bands down cause they have influenced alot of todays bands So in conclusion megadeth is good and you can suck on my left testical. Iron madien/motley crue are good though

Obviously, its about a very paranoid/schizophrenic person. This song is great. I love it.

I thought this was about a bad relationship. Not being able to cope, perhaps in a marraige, then finally after feeling trapped murdering your partner. Very cool song :-)

You could look at it that way, but after seeing the music video, I can see it's some criminaly insane guy who commited himself and other parts of him are torturing him for it and making him crazyer.

An error occured.

It also has things that could be references to nuclear war... mutually assured destruction, mankind has got to know his limitations, the general theme of being paranoid and being ready to kill someone out of fear, etc.

another cool thing is since it refers to nuclear war it helps round the corners off a bit. like nuclear war is well, carried out by the government. a schizophrenic is often paranoid mainly from the government.

I think this song is about Dave. His public persona versus his private one. the rock star image versus Dave Mustaine the man. The drug addict versus the musical genius. Very clever-I love it :O)

An error occured.

Agreed with the person above. I love Megadeth! This is by far my favourite song.

An error occured.

I agree with those 2 up there ^

The vid to this song is trippy... lol

An error occured.

second favorite Megadeth song, A Tout le Monde is my favorite..

but everytime i here this son i think of a schizophrenic person

I'm just about with you here, À Tout le Monde (And yes, the accent above the A does make a difference in meaning) is my favorite M'deth song, but In My Darkest Hour is 2nd, making this around 3rd.

I love when he says, "A Dark black past is my most valued posession!" He says it like the Joker would have said something in the Dark Knight.
