Rust in Peace

Take No Prisoners is the third song off of American heavy metal band Megadeth's fourth album Rust in Peace, written by Dave Mustaine. This song is about D-day.


    Got one chance, infiltrate them
    Get it right, terminate them
    The Panzers will, permeate them
    Break their pride, denigrate them
    And their people, retrograde them
    Typhus, deteriate them
    Epidemic, devastate them
    Take no prisoners, cremate them
    Going to war, give 'em hell
    D-Day, next stop Normandy
    Beginning of the end
    We know how to and sure as shit we'll win
    War is peace sure man
    A retreat for the damned
    A playground for the demented
    A haven for those who walk this world
    Bereft of heart and soul
    Love and war they say all is fair
    Take his life but won't take his hair
    Your body has parts your, country can spare
    By the way son, here's your wheelchair
    He once had to be all he could be
    Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see
    Funny thing, he's like you & me
    It's a funny thing, a funny thing
    Tears streak his solemn stare
    Abandoned for wreckage nobody cares
    No one knew what would happen there
    No one spoke no one even dared
    Don't ask what you can do for you country
    Ask what your country can do for you
    Take no prisoners, take no shit
    Take no prisoners, take no shit
    Take no prisoners, take no shit
    Take no prisoners, take no shit
