44 Minutes Lyrics

by Megadeth

It was a cold winter's morning

Somewhere shortly past 9:00 AM

The armored car they wanted to heist wasn't coming So instead they went for the bank

The fateful duo that sat in the get-away car

Heavily sedated with thousands of rounds

Armor piercing, fully automatic weapons

The bowls of wrath poured out on the ground

[Chorus:]

Baptized in a firefight

Hot blood running cold as ice

44 minutes of target practice

All hell's breaking loose

Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife

Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel

And brought down the beast!

This was an accident waiting to happen
It wasn't if it would happen, it was when
The city's people sabotaged themselves
Calling their firepower unneeded expense
The two most violent men it seemed couldn't be stopped
Standard police issued guns were just not enough
But SWAT arrived to settle the fight
Between AK-47 and AR-15
