Of Mice And Men Lyrics - Megadeth

Review The Song (10)



The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

Back when I was just seventeen
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
To be a rising star that only gleamed
But all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me

I was legal now at twenty-one
I knew the way the world should run
My God, just look what I had done
Simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends, but I found none
sponsored links
All alone at twenty-one

[Solo - Poland]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

At twenty-five I was surprised
That I was even half-alive
Somehow I managed to survive
I felt my body doing time
And in my back a hundred knives
From my friends at twenty-five

And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life, if you would sell
A year or two if less compelled
So live your life and live it well
There's not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell

[Solo - Poland]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

[Solo - fills Poland]
[Solo - Mustaine]

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

The fire burns on and on
That drives me on 'til all is gone
Except the simple plans
Of mice and men

[Solo - fills Poland]

mice or men we're all the same Experimental beings. | Reviewer: vish layne | 2/23/13

this is definitely one of the many best all of megadeth, another 1 a toule mond. This explains myself except a 100 knives in my back when i just turned thirty five. I donot endorse any kind of exhibitionism, just that my life's just been the way mustaine's writing. Thank you for everything Megadeth.

songs of megadeth is so addictive . since i have started to listen to megadeth i never found any band that deserves the best place of metal | Reviewer: dave | 4/1/09

megadeth is the world's most awesome band. all of the songs by megadeth gave meaning to me. and about "of mice and men" is the song that really matches to my life and i am dam sure that matches to all of ur'life. About this song "of mice and man" i guess this song is his own story "dave mustanie's. and i fucking love this band megadeth. esp solo and riffs and lyrics all are so gud to my fucking ear pussy. songs of megadeth are so addictive . since i have started to listen to megadeth i never found any band that deserves the best place of metal. thank to metallica that kicks him out? and as compared to metallica and megadeth, there is no way, megadeth is aways 1000x better than metallica, metallica is just a shit as compared to megadeth.

One of the best out there | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/09

The lyrics is beautiful;its so meaningful. The music is beautiful, and Dave Mustaine sings it beautifully.

There's nothing else to say; this song is a masterpiece in the history of music, and shall be passed onto generations to come. Not only is it beautiful, but it delivers a messege to the younger, as well as older, generations; you can only live once, so live life to your fullest. Don't give up no matter what happens, get up each time you fall and try again.

The song gives not only hope, but inspiration.

I'm forever grateful Mustaine got kicked out of Matellica, else this song would never be.T-T

Megadeth would never be..

LONG LIVE MEGADETH!!! Yosh~

Funny story | Reviewer: Dylan | 1/12/09

I've been a Megadeth fan for a long time now, and today I started my English 1 class in 9th grade. We are reading two novels in the class, and guess what they are? "Of Mice and Men", by John Steinbeck and "Master of the Five Magics", by Lyndon Hardy. Both of them influenced songs written by Megadeth, which actually makes me want to read them. Rock on Mustaine, never knew you were a bookworm.

Excellent tunage. | Reviewer: Dan Jackson | 10/2/07

Keep hearing this tune throughout the years but never get round to finding it out...its a wicked song though, catchy riff, good melody and some meaningful yet sad lyrics. Awesome tune, cant big it up enough. - Dan.

Great Song | Reviewer: Banjo Minnow | 8/15/07

I have been a Deth fan for a long time now and I have to say that this song (and the album) stacks up there w/ the best of em. The lyrics are amazing and the song is heavy and has a great solo in true Megadeth form. Funny that at the twilight of their careers, Megadeth and Metallica release an album at about the same time and Mustain makes a better one. I wonder what this would have been like if metal was still relavant in todays music.

About the song Of Mice And Men performed by Megadeth | Reviewer: Stamp | 8/9/07

When I said "Most of the time he's all snarl" I mean on other songs. 'Of Mice And Men' is done perfectly for me though, just to clarrify! The reason I can't get on with his 'snarl' is the diminished volumes of doing it. I want my metal loud and clear, like this song!

Very good | Reviewer: Sam | 7/11/07

This is a beautiful song, and I agree with you both in one aspect. He sings the song with the voice of an angel and of course he always manages to take your soul to the devil with his "edge" singing.
But I disagree with stamp, I love his snarl...it is part of what makes Dave Mustaine sound so aggressive and that is what hooked me into MegaDeth. anyway..great song :)

Review about Of Mice And Men | Reviewer: Stamp | 6/11/07

Agreed. Cool song. I wish Mustain had sung like this on all of his records. This song has the perfect balance of snarl and clarity. Most of the time he's all snarl and I think it sounds terrible. No-one could sing THIS song better than him though. He actually sung it right this time!!

Very Wonderful | Reviewer: Duct Tape | 4/6/07

I have listened to this song many times, and now, I can't get it out of my head. It is a wonderful song, written very well, and sung with passion.
