"Wrecker" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
It doesn't matter what car you drive, she'll wreck it
It doesn't matter where you sleep at night, she'll wreck it
It doesn't matter where you go to work
Doesn't matter where you go to church
Doesn't matter just how bad it hurts, she'll wreck it

My bleached bones in the desert, it's all she's left of me

Poison ivy in your touch, being with you destroyed so much
Home wrecker
Deadly venom in your kiss, hell can't be worse than this
Home wrecker

It doesn't matter what you pretend, she'll wreck it
It doesn't matter what you defend, she'll wreck it
It doesn't matter how you live your life
Doesn't matter anymore to your wife
Doesn't matter even how you die, she'll wreck that too

Like a vulture picking my bones clean, it's all that's left of me

Poison ivy in your touch, being with you destroyed so much
Home wrecker
Deadly venom in your kiss, hell can't be worse than this
Home wrecker

Doesn't matter where you live
Doesn't matter what you drive
Home wrecker

Poison ivy in your touch, being with you destroyed so much
Home wrecker
Deadly venom in your kiss, hell can't be worse than this
Home wrecker

    General CommentI think it's interesting that the song starts with wrecker and becomes homewrecker. The wrecker could just be someone you're acquainted with who seems to leave messes in her wake. The homewrecker has to be more specific. I imagine the guy has to be in a committed relationship and the woman has to know that and be trying to break that up.

    I wonder if this is referring to someone in Dave's when he was dating, before he got married, or if the inspiration came from other sources outside of his personal life. Drugs or alcohol could also be "wreckers" but aren't associated with gender.
