Set the World Afire

“I just want to set the world afire…”

  Red flash clouds choking out the morning sky
  They said it’d never come, we knew it was a lie

  All forms of life die now, the humans all
  succumb
  Time to kiss your ass goodbye, the end has just
  begun

  Distorted figures walk the street, it’s 1999
  Weeds once underneath the feet have grown to
  vines
  Bodies melted like a candle, a land without a
  face
  No time to change your fate, no time left, it’s
  too late

  The aresenal of Megadeth can’t be rid of they
  said
  And if it comes the living will envy the dead
  Racing for power and all come in last
  No winning, first stone cast

  This falsehood wordly peace
  Its treaties soon will cease
  No one will be left to prove that humans
  existed
  Maybe soon the children will be born open
  fisted

  We all live on one planet and it will all go up in
  smoke
  Too bad they couldn’t see this lethal energy
  And now the final scene, a global darkening

  Dig deep the piles of rubble and ruin
  Towering overhead both far and wide
  There’s unknown tools for World War III
  Einstein said, ‘We’ll use rocks on the other side’

  No survivors, set the world afire!

Megadeth — So Far … So Good ….. So What!!!!
