Megadeth 44 Minutes Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2012 11:09:31 AM

It was a cool winter's morning
Somewhere shortly past 9:00 AM
The armored car they wanted to heist wasn't coming
So instead they went for the bank

The fateful duo that sat in the get-away car
Heavily sedated with thousands of round
Armor piercing, fully automatic weapons
The bowls of wrath poured out on the ground

Baptized in a firefight
Hot blood running cold as ice
44 minutes of target practice
All hell's breaking loose
Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife
Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel
And brought down the beast!!!

[Solo - Chris]

This was an accident waiting to happen
It wasn't if it would happen, it was when
The city's people sabotaged themselves
Calling their firepower an unneeded expense

The two most violent men it seemed couldn't be stopped
Standard police issue guns were just not enough
But SWAT arrived to settled the fight
Between AK-47 and AR-15


[Solo - Chris]
[Solo - Dave]
[Solo - Chris]


[Solo - Chris]

The dumb anonymous comment... | Reviewer: Danny | 8/30/12

Dave is a genius lyrical writer. 44 Minutes didn't have the greatest lyrics, but Wake Up Dead did. You have to get used to his lyrical style. Wake Up Dead was a great song all around. It wasn't a serious topic or matter like 44 Minutes or Holy Wars was.

Tsk. Wanna-be critics shouldn't be allowed to post on here.

Good song, but... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/10/11

This song was pretty good but these lyrics are horrible. They are almost as bad as the "Wake Up Dead" lyrics which currently hold the number 1 position for worst lyrics ever. Dave is a good songwriter and a good guitar player but his lyrics are almost as bad as his personality.
