  • "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 *** 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 arsenal 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 worldly 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!
