Megadeth – The Threat Is Real Lyrics


[Verse 1]
Justified obliteration, no one cares anymore
The Messiah or mass murderer
No controlling who comes through the door
A culture made of cover-ups
Will leprosy touch their flesh
For backroom meetings and rendezvous
The vultures have come home to nest
[Chorus 1]
The clock runs out
The weakest link
A deadly strike
The threat is real! [Chorus 2]
A fatal shot
A lust for blood
The final act
The threat is real! [Verse 2]
Seen the burnished images of
A crestfallen agency
Violent conditioning caused the nature of the enemy
Your terminal lack of vision
Blinded eyes see no light
A chronic lack of perspective
Their cancer now eats us alive
[Chorus 2]
A fatal shot
A lust for blood
The final act
The threat is real! [Guitar solo]
[Verse 1]
Justified obliteration, no one cares anymore
The Messiah or mass murderer
No controlling who comes through the door
A culture made of cover-ups
Where leprosy touch their flesh
Fall back with meetings and rendezvous
The vultures have come home to nest
[Chorus 1]
The clock runs out
The weakest link
A deadly strike
The threat is real!
