"Losing My Senses" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
One man speaking the truth
No one likes when it fits
So we tell soothing lies
And betray our own lips

The uncivilized world
And its people decay
Once sweet breeze is defiled
Sucking our breath away

Yesterday's answers has nothing to do
With today's questions

Life can only be understood in reverse
But must be lived forwardsâ?¦
I'm losing my senses, I'm losing my senses

We watch as the living all die
Contemplating if we should
Ever open our eyes

If all that we touch
Keeps turning to sand
We will cease to exist
Till the last living man

Yesterday's answers has nothing to do
With today's questions

Life can only be understood in reverse
But must be lived forwardâ?¦
Life can only be understood in reverse
But must be lived forwardâ?¦
I'm losing my senses

Yesterday's answers has nothing to do
With today's questions

Life can only be understood in reverse
But must be lived forwardsâ?¦
Life can only be understood in reverse
But must be lived forwardsâ?¦

    General Commentperilsofbeing is exactly right.

    "Life can only be understood in reverse
    But must be lived forwards"

    This means that when we look back on things we realize what we should've done and what was best but when we face them in the present we just have to take is as we go

    General CommentI always thought he said "Life can only be understood in reverse, but must be lived for worth." Either way I got the same meaning out of it, except that I thought he was explaining that it was necessary to live it.

    I like Mustain's lyrics better.
