Megadeth - Burnt Ice Lyrics




[Solo - Mustaine]

He said he'd try just a little bit

[Solo - Mustaine]

He didn't want to end up like them

[Solo - Drover]

And now he blames the voices of a toothless wonder

[Solo - Mustaine]

Pounding on the door to make the next score

[Solo - Drover]

Anything for a hit, any sin to pay for it
For that next bowl, he'd sell his soul

Spiral to destruction, it's too late to break the spell
He wants the ride to stop on the freight train straight to hell
Without the truth he'll never find in a dungeon of his lies
His cause of death... high speed on burnt ice

[Solo - Mustaine]

Always looking at the ground, a broken, beaten man
Memories of his family are calling after him
He can hardly think, hardly walk
Phone keeps ringing, he can't talk
With just one hit the pain would go away
But he's dead if he does

[Solo - Drover]
[Solo - Mustaine]
[Solo - Drover]

Shadow people follow him everywhere he goes
Looking over his shoulder, the paranoia grows

[Solo - Mustaine]

    Worst part of the song is 3:49

  9. Lima ozukum

  10. Barto10

    NAJLEPSZY UTWÓR EVER!

  11. Nicolas Care

    Samael Levithan

    Not as hard as your mom does for weave money!

    Moment Of Clarity

    Hey you! I hope you die in a house fire. 🔥

  13. R Walder

    Megadeth fucking rules

  14. Juan Navarro

    I get "use the man" vibes

  15. Azael Alexis

    METALLICA MADE A HUGE MISTAKE IN FIRING MUSTAINE 😟 AND IM A HUGE FAN OF METALLICA BUT MUSTAINE IN THE GUITAR IS A MONSTER!!!!!!

  16. Ariel Fernandez

    Dave's solos are like napalm burning you face

    floorgasm1

    @ÁUß Code wtf

  17. joseph balduren

    Dave is better and always has been better than kirk, dave writes his own music, unlike kirk who has james hetfield write the music for him

    Arin Chendwankar

    I totally agree but there are some decent riffs he has written for Metallica, well what do you expect?? He's no mustaine

    Aris Koumbanakis

    Go seek attention somewhere else you stupid bitch. Both are great

    Filip Dzero

    Fuck your ignorant ass! Kirk wrote a lot of Metallica's biggest (and best) riffs! The Sandman riff, the "come crawling faster" riff in Master of Puppets, the Creeping Death breakdown riff, the Damage Inc. switch-up riff... If you gotta express your opinion at least don't be delusional, you blind sheep...

  18. Edward Finley

    If anyone was wondering, this song is about the dangers of drug addiction.

  19. diego vera

    2:59 ORGASM MOMENT

  20. wade s

    The last truly great Megadeth song.

    Aslam Shaikh

    wade s you havent heard dystopia. Songs like poisonous shadows, conquer or die

    MutationGiraffeNeck

    Endgame has mostly great songs for the most part. Even Super Collider has some gems like Dance In The Rain, Don't Turn Your Back, And even Burn! But yes, Dystopia is definitely one of their best albums rn.

  21. Leo Valdes

    Rolon Dave Mustaine solo final!!!

  22. 3d yaniv

    their last good album...such a heavy and original track

    Bad Omen

    Ever heard of Endgame or Dystopia?

  23. Brandon H.

    The last solo is Dave's.
    You're welcome.

  24. Lelantos

    Holy shit I've never heard of this song but it's fucking amazing!!!

  25. Leonardo Vinícius

    I love brazil

    Baraka Obama

    Leonardo Vinícius Kiko!

  26. Chase

    how could u get the lyrics confused about cocaine use? Definitely talking about Crysta Meth in this song.

  27. Julio MS

    so much cocaine lyric content in a single song...

    Alejandro Lino

    meth, actually

    Eddie The Head

    +Brock Hemphill oh well... Still a drug...

    Deliverance

    Dave never used meth. It was heroin

  28. Josué Vázquez

    Kirk hammet escucha esto y del enojo destruye todos sus pedales jaja :v

    Josué Vázquez

    +Eddie The Head mmm se me hacía raro :v... y ya sabía que tu primer comentario es la letra de saint cecilia de foo fighters XD

  33. Loquendo BK

    Gran solaso de Dave

    Light Yagami

    Loquendo BK te miro en todos lados :v

  34. mike nedelcu

    although i am tired of the duel: megadeth vs metallica , KnathanofCydonia said it best when he/she said,"Megedeth burns ice, Metallica gets trapped under it.".

    Ghost Boy

    "Burnt Ice" is a phrase referring to Crystal meth, I don't understand it in this context. It's an oxymoron that doesn't make sense...

    Lelantos

    The Chratheostic He doesn't mean that it's the same ice haha. Megadeth burns ice, Metallica gets trapped under ice.

    Lelantos

    Ghost Boy Do oxymorons ever make sense? Apart from "living dead" which can be seen as a zombie?

    Ghost Boy

    @Lelantos Point taken.

    Vic Rattlehead

    What is Metallica though? oh that inferior previous band of Dave.

  35. Freedomm1987

    This is such an underrated track. That solo beginning at 2:58...holy fuck! Not a technical solo, but soaked with adrenaline!

  36. Keith Valdez

    This shows that Glen Drover was a far better guitar player than Chris Broderick. 

    Keith Valdez

    @Eddie Loera
    Not sure why I didn't see this sooner but... I wasn't referring to Dave's Solo work.

    Tamzid Rahman

    i'll always prefer marty friedman

    Baraka Obama

    Poland is the best

    Nick Waters

    Speaking of technical skills and theoretical knowledge, I agree. However, Friedman is a much better musician and composer.

    Matías Bazaes E.

    Who's better fight between Friedman and Broderick... Meanwhile the God Poland sitting eating popcorn.

  37. rocafella142

    Shawn Drover played amazing in this song... If he played like this all the time people wouldn't have started saying he sucks

    ΣΤΕΦΑΝΟΣ ΚΩΝΣΤΑΝΤΙΝΟΥ

    +rocafella142 well, i kinda like his playing in this album

  38. Varun Kuchibhotla

    I hated the beginning with the coughing, but the rest of the song is pretty good.

    Varun Kuchibhotla

    @DaViD AMP Butthurt.

    The Extinct Surgeon

    @Jamz Hatefeel myeees

    Bryan120000

    the songs about drugs.

  39. Gorko7

    2:55 impossible to avoid headbanging

    TayR0C

    0:00 to 3:48 impossible to avoid headbang

  40. Dulce CXX

    Megadeth

  41. Ayur Bhatta

    Another Masterpiece by The God Himself!!

  42. Ο Επιστήμων

    (Cough cough)

  43. Akeem Malky

    2 words

    LOVEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    MEGSADETH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Dustin Potter

    Dave used heroin not meth, so everyone, stop saying this is about his experience with meth

    Goabnb94

    @Patrick Rodgers Except that weed is addictive...

    Jason B.

    +Dustin Potter SO you guys all know Dave...or what?

    Wookie Jesus

    +Goabnb94 its not physically addictive tho

    Goabnb94

    @Wookie Jesus But it is. Not in every case, nor to the same extent, but its not a one rare instance either. Your body adapts to the drug, meaning you need to take it or else other effects kick in. Caffeine is the same

    Jorge Castellanos

    In a concert Dave said this song was about meth -_-

  45. nightmare 1392

    mi cancion favorita mi album favorito mi banda favorita 
    MEGADETH ASTA LA MUERTEEE!!!!!

  46. alev yagmaz

    best song from this album!!!

    Devrim Odabaşı

    +alev yagmaz evet

  47. Spencer Nelson

    that end solo; HOLY FUCKING SHIT!! *eargasm*

    TheAir97

    dude, this whole thing is one big eargasm \m/

    Varun Kuchibhotla

    @TheAir97 You're a Metallica and Megadeth fan?!! Hold on, let me take a picture.

    TheAir97

    @Varun Kuchibhotla I'm a huge fan for both bands! I got into Metallica before I got into Megadeth, though, but both bands are amazing! I honestly think that if someone hates on one of the bands, it's just stupid, because the whole fight between Megadeth and Metallica stopped over a decade ago, but immature little assholes like to pretend it's still a thing.

    Bird Topaz

    Spencer Nelson I wish Glenn Dover was STILL with Megadeth!! *GROAN!*

  48. Robbie Suttner

    This one sounds like something they should have put on "Countdown To Extinction" many years ago, but I suppose they just saved it for this record.

    Jesse Hernandez

    too true

    emile

    Robbie Suttner This is too fast for Countdown to Extinction.

    Mega Fanatic

    Smellier Moans Ashes In Your Mouth?

    leerobbo92

    @emile High Speed Dirt, Skin o' My Teeth... Why did people upvote this comment?

  49. Victor Gabriel Negron

    The most climatic song ever, especially at the end.

  50. Kazic5000

    Megatallica?

  51. rathertragik

    2:57 Mustaine Burns

  52. AguilarKillswitch

    Ok seriously youtube needs to quit it with these stupid samsung ads with jay z ugggggh I hate him and I HATE HIP HOP. METAL IS REAL MUSIC.

  53. mortemdrummer

    one of megadeth's best songs glen drover's solos rip way hard not to mention dave's and shawn's drumming... this is my favorite megadeth record

  54. 1983electric

    HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE TABS FOR THIS SONG

  55. cheeseburp

    Or Slayerdeth

  56. chernobleman

    I know dude. You can feel the psychotic fury of a methamphetamine induced rage with that last solo.

  57. cheeseburp

    If you guys like Metallica and/or Anthrax, then you'll probably like Metallithrax. Check it out, it's here on my channel (And don't give me thumbs down because i'm trying to promote my newer videos on my most viewed video (which is obviously Burnt Ice).

  58. Viktor Rattlehead

    0/10.

    Besides that making no sense. The last time Dave took a Risk, was just that.

    It's not who's better...how can one judge "better" in a game of subjectivity.

  59. BrittleMastodon

    Probably the best song on the album overall.

  60. cheeseburp

    damn I wish I could have been here for 10000 views

  61. TheStarDeth

    Very underrated megadeth song, one of is best !

  62. Nicolas Arango

    best solo ever

  63. Marcos Juliano Meireles

    The music was perfect until 3:49

  64. KARLOZ KRUSHER

    LA CANCION QUE MAS AMO DE MEGADETH
    TODOS SUS DISCOS ME ENCANTAN PERO ESTE DISCO ES MI FAVORITO I ESTA MI CANCION FAVORITA XD

  65. TheTaskmaster

    not a bad song but... i feel like i've never heard it. shows how weak this album was compared to most Megadeth albums. but many young teenagers found this band on this tour, so...whatever.

  66. Stephen Diggle

    the song's about meth, the nickname for which is ice and people usually smoke it so burnt ice;)

  67. Dreams

    an underestimate track from Megadeth,it rocks, it was of my favorites when i was in my thrash metal period with the Big 4 of Thrash

  68. fca5

    damn i headbanged hard on this

  69. LANCE LEE

    BEST COUGH EVER

  70. Distracted Mind

    good.....exelent.....awsome......incredible!.....epic....master piece.

  71. chernobleman

    Especially how that pentatonic scale cycles like forever at the end, just how meth lasts so damn long and continuously releases a ton of dopamine in the synapses.

  72. chernobleman

    Holy Wars is epic and all, but being that Dave was a hardcore addict, that solo made me literally feel like I was high on meth when I heard it.

  73. Andrew Mills

    Holy Wars has it beat imo

  74. ASFMANUTD

    Goodnight motherfuckers

  75. mortemdrummer

    best album ever. other albums almost no longer seem like albums rather trash that needs recycling.

    MEGASDETHEEEEEEEEEEEE

  76. cheeseburp

    @chernobleman i know, thats why everytime i play this song for my friend, I don't say, "This song is called Burnt Ice," I say, "This song is what I call 'The Electric Guitar Symphony'"

  77. chernobleman

    That solo at the end sounds like the angriest solo Mustaine ever did.

  78. cheeseburp

    @m3ta11icafan yay ur first
