Set the World Afire Lyrics - Megadeth
Review The Song (4)
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 your feet have grown into 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 arsenal of Megadeth can't be rid 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 worldly peace
It's 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 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 ruins
Towering overhead both far and wide
There's unknown tools of World War III
Einstein said "We'll use rocks on the other side"
Set the world afire!
Set the world afire!

Megadeth | Reviewer: Alex Quenneville | 1/21/13
It an art compose such music, but it is a real brains work to write such deep and meaningful text.
Even though he was on hard drug back then, is vision of things seemed more realistic while being poetic at the same time.
The BEST Megadeth song ever! | Reviewer: Vic Rattlehead | 5/9/12
The BEST song of Megadeth in my opinion! And thats saying a lot considering how many amazing songs Megadeth have come out with.
So many brilliant riffs all in one song, and amazing solos too. I especially love the paragraph where Mustaine sings "Dig deep the piles of....." where he sings and plays a solo at the same time! And the progressive feel of that particular solo almost feels like a siren during a war...
The song, along with Dave's intense voice almost gives you a feel of an actual Megadeath!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/10
It´s amazing how Dave sings and plays the guitar I really love all of the songs of them! In my opinion Megadeth is absolutely better than Metallica of course!!!! James Hetfield,the vocals of Metallica is too cocky man
