13 Lyrics

Play "13"
on Amazon Music

Thirteen times I went to the well
To draw my thoughts, I'll gather and tell
Like bricks that I've laid to build my life
Those that crumbled only caused me strife
Thoughts became words, cast into the sea
But they returned, always haunting...

    This song is, obviously, about Dave Mustaine and how the number "13" is lucky for him. It is about his childhood, how he began playing the guitar at thirteen years old. It is his thirteenth album, track 13 on the album etc. It mentions the bad things that happened in his life, but the chorus is more optimistic: "And I'm still alive". It is almost as if he is thinking of stopping writing songs, though he hasn't made a statement that he is thinking about it, "I just don't think I can give any more". "Years of clawing at scars that never healed" refers mainly to Metallica, I think, that he was so angry at not been in Metallica and in their bigger success, that he never actually celebrated his own success.
