"High Speed Dirt" is a track of the album Countdown to Extinction. The theme of its lyrics is unusual for Megadeth as this song is about a sky person impacting the earth at full speed to taste the dirt.

LyricsEdit

    Do it if you dare
    Leaping from the sky
    Hurling thru the air
    Exhilarating high
    See the earth below
    Soon to make a crater
    Blue sky, black death
    I'm off to meet my maker
    
    Energy of the Gods, adrenalin surge
    Won't stop 'til I hit the ground
    I'm on my way for sure
    Up here in the air this will never hurt
    I'm on my way to impact
    Taste the high speed dirt
    
    Paralyzed with fear
    Feel velocity gain
    Entering a near
    Catatonic state
    Pressure of the sound
    Roaring thru my head
    Crash into the ground
    Damned if I'll be dead
    
    Energy of the gods, adrenalin surge
    Won't stop 'til I hit the ground
    I'm on my way for sure
    Up here in the air this will never hurt
    I'm on my way to impact
    Taste the high speed dirt
    
    Jump or die!
    
    Dropping all my weight
    Going down full throttle
    The Pale Horse awaits
    Like a genie in a bottle
    Fire in my veins
    Faster as I go
    I forgot my name
    I'm a dirt torpedo
    
    High speed dirt
    
    Shit!
