Don't remember where I was
I realized life was a game

The more seriously I took things
The harder the rules became

I had no idea what it'd cost
My life passed before my eyes

I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all

Smile when you think of me
My body's gone
That's all

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break

And my memories left with you
There's nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard

You know the sleeping feel no more pain
And the living are scarred

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

(1st Solo)

So as you read
Know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all

Please smile,
Smile when you think about me
My body's gone
That's all

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free...

(2nd solo and outro)

    It's not a suicide song. What it is, it's, you, it's when people have a loved one that dies and they end on a bad note, you know, they wish that they could say something to them. So this is an opportunity for the deceased to say something before they go. And it was my impression of what i would like to say to people, if i had say, 3 seconds to do so in life before i died i'd say to the entire world, to all my friends, i love you all, and now i must go. These are the last words i'll ever speak, and they'll set me free. I don't have to say i'm sorry, i don't have to say i'm going to miss you, or i'll wait for ya. You know, i'll just say i loved you all, good, bad, indifferent, i loved you all. - dave mustaine

    If his heart was still alive it would surely break means that he no longer can feel anything he's numb and he is simply allowing his body to join his heart in death. But he knows by ending his pain will cause pain to the ones he loves. So he wants to tell them that only his body is gone he is still alive within them. Smile when you think of me my body's gone that's all. Remember the good times, keep me alive.

    When i hear this song, i think of my cousin who was murdered. It will be a year as of june 25th. 2012. He is terribly missed and well... When i hear this song, i just picture him singing it to us. Because he was a fan of megadeth. He loved to play their music when we were younger.

    It's a suicide letter in a metaphoric sense... Regarding the way the youth has been discarded, neglected or forgotten. It's words left unspoken that would set them free... With that being said it is in no way telling people that suicide is the best way to solve a problem its merely depicting how its handled. It's also letting the ones who feel alone know they are not alone in the world there are others who have been discarded, neglected or forgotten. Rise above it and show the world you can shine, make something of your life when your handed lemons... So stop wasting your life, turn them lemons into lemon-aid. Rock on megadeth!! Dave mustaine rox my sox!
