"Captive Honour" is the tenth track off of Megadeth's fifth album Countdown to Extinction. This song is about trying to earn a honour for killing many people but instead incarcerated for life.


    Madness comes and madness goes
    An insane place with insane moves
    Battles without for battles within
    Where evil lives and evil rules
    Breaking them up, just breaking them in
    Quickest way out, quickest relief wins
    Never disclose, never betray
    Cease to speak or cease to breathe
    And when you kill a man you're a murderer
    Kill many and you're a conqueror
    Kill them all and you're a God
    "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
    Have you reached a verdict?"
    "Yes, we have 'Your Honour', we find the defendant guilty
    On all counts for crimes against all humanity"
    "By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
    Vested in me by the state
    I hereby sentence you to be incarcerated
    With no possibility of parole for life"
    "Life? What do you mean life? I ain't got a life"
    "Boy, your soul better belong to Jesus!
    Hmmm-mmm, cause your ass belongs to me!"
    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    No time for questions
    No time for the games
    Start kicking ass
    And taking down the names
    A long shit list
    A shorter fuse
    He is untouchable
    And guarantees you'll lose
    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    Inside the big house
    His nightmare unfolds
    Before he got there
    His man-pussy was sold
    Black blanket welcome
    This tough guy's now a bitch
    Praying for death
    It can't be worse than this
    Captive honour, ain't no honour
    Captive honour, ain't no honour
