Megadeth – A Tout Le Monde lyrics
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.

    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!

    This song touched me when first I heard it. I could not help but cry non-stop because it was played at my best mates funeral. He was killed by a drunk and stoned driver after work one night. This bloke sent him off the road, rolled his car 3 times and then walked away leaving him there. I still now have tears in my eyes when I hear it being played as I was the last person to speak him. Even as I am sitting here and writting this, I have those same tears in my eyes. It was his very first song that he learnt to play on his guitar that he got for his 16th birthday. He'd only just turned 18. People if your drunk or stoned, please don't get behind the wheel and drive. Walk, get a taxi or a mate to pick you up.

    Call me crazy, but I believe this song is about living a meaningless life in the flesh and turning your life over to live in the spirit. It is not an actual death of the mortal body, but of crucifying the flesh. It is true living for the flesh only brings spiritual death and letting go of that is a painful process in which only the Lord can help us do, but indead is does bring new life!

    By the way you can think that this sond is about suicide all you guys/gals want.
    If you think about the fact that he says that all his plans were denied, he is just telling all his friends that he is done waiting and that he is going on his journey to forefill his plans. Its my point of view and I thought it would be good to share it with you all. No need to see death or suicide in a physical sense. Death can be a state of mind just like suicide can be a way of life. Being suicidal can be seen as removing the fear of death within' us and put away the excuses that we give ourselves to let some things be when we all know that they are more then wrong.

    He realized the truth and he knew itd set him free: you know the sleeping feel no more pain. Realized life was a game (game)repetition. Defined in many ways as a joke in reference to smile when you think of me but knows he loved what it was. Friends world ect. Then pertaining another megadeth song. Sweating bullets. A dark black past is my most valued possession. Someday you 2 will know my fate and smile its black toothed grin!

    Loooveee this music.
    I think it talks about, how life can past by without you to live it in big. And that life is a game that more you took more harder the rulez became. And he know he'll die, and he want his friends that been the most especial thing in his life to know that his going away (i think his going to suicide. Btw.) and he want to his friends smile everytime they think about him, and he always we'll be with them the only thing that gone was his body. He love them. : ')
