Kick The Chair Lyrics - Megadeth

Review The Song (5)

Dawn breaks evenly today
On the truth and the lie
All rise, court's in session
We're hanging someone high

Justice means nothing today
Now that the courts are for sale
Pick a crime from the menu, pick a sentence and defend you
And pick up the down payment called bail
The system's for sale!

Kick the chair, the rope is tight
Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out
Friend or foe, I gotta hang 'em dead
Or they'll come back around
Kick it!

The court's wrong when it keeps track
Of victories and defeats
The press that never rests just waits
For somebody's soul they can eat

Justice means nothing today
Now that the jury's for sale
Guilty or not, the verdict's a lie
You're going to jail
The system has failed!

Kick the chair, the rope is tight
Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out
Friend or foe, ya gotta hang 'em dead
Or they'll come back

Kick the Chair - Message for Dave Mustaine | Reviewer: Danny | 10/10/09

I'm actually just getting into Megadeth and have been learning this song on my guitar, Kick the Chair. It's actually not that bad to learn for me I thought it would be harder, but the solos are fast. Dave if you ever come across this I would like to give you some positive feedback. I'm just getting into your band and I like your story better than Metallica's when I Wiki'd it on google. You inspired me greatly that you were able to turn your life around and become a christian that is so awesome and inspiring. And your really sending a good message to younger people too. I myself am going through AA and stuff right now so I can relate. Your new album rocks too man! Great lyrics, great singing, and master guitar work! You should play until your at least 70 if you can keep releasing work of this quality. I'm just a great fan of your guitar playing style I can keep up with the tabs after a few hours of learning. I hope to see you at the Orbit room in Grand Rapids in November. **** the Metallica concert is sold out and 75 bucks a ticket in November at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids I'd rather see you play anyway man. Keep Rocking please! Such a fan Danny age26--

This song is true megadeth- relentless from start to finish with that social point that Dave continually nails. The best band in the world, keep going. Cant wait for the new album- should be special.

why can't we just stop guessing what happened when Dave left Metallica? the truth is that Dave is some kind of specific person and in every interview you see that he isn't very polite. Always says "I made it" "I'm the best"... You actually can't like people like that. I don't know him so I shouldn't actually say anyting but I read it this way. Peace

Good song | Reviewer: Josh | 10/13/07

This is my favorite Megadeth song to date. It's great to hear about a young, very talented musician who got booted out of a great band (Metallica) and be able to continue their leagacy on their own. Way to go Dave!

This song is probably one of the best songs I have ever heard. Megadeth is factually my favorite band (next to Rush and Judas Priest). The solos are the best parts of the song, but the lyrics are totally awe-inspiring. It's like, you throw in a hodgepodge of intelligent lyrical writers and boom! This is what you get! It's absolutely wonderful! Go Megadeth!
