MEGADETH: 'Washington Is Next' Lyrics Revealed

The lyrics to the new MEGADETH song "Washington Is Next", taken from the group's upcoming "United Abominations" album, have been released. A video of MEGADETH performing the song live in Toronto, Ontario on Monday, September 25 can be viewed at YouTube.com. The lyrics are as follows:

Washington Is Next
(Music and Lyrics: Dave Mustaine)

The quiet war has begun with silent weapons
And the new slavery is to keep the people
Poor and stupid, "Novus Ordo Seclorus"

How can there be any logic in biological war?
We all know this is wrong, but the New World Order's
Beating down the door, oh something needs to be done

There was a King who had a dream with no idea
What it could mean and nobody could interpret
Of seven empires falling, the wolf is at the door
As predicted years ago, that that was, that is, that is no more

The word predicts the future and tells the truth about the past
Of how the world leaders are waiting to usher in the
Eighth False King to the throne, Washington is Next!

Disengage their minds, sabotage their health
Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens
Blame the parents and teachers; it's their fault, "Annuit Coeptis"
Attack the church dynamic, attack the family
Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred and
The "have-nots" get hooked and have to go to the "haves" just to cop a fix

I am a King who had a dream with no idea
What it could mean and nobody could interpret
Of seven empires falling, the wolf is at my door
As predicted years ago, that that was, that is, that is no more

The word predicts the future and tells the truth about the past
Of how the world leaders are waiting to see me
I'm the Eighth False King to the throne, Washington is Next!

There was a King who had a dream with no idea
What it could mean and nobody could interpret
Of seven empires fallen, the wolf is at the door
As predicted years ago, that that was, that is, that is no more

I am a King and I had dream, and nobody could interpret
Seven empires fallen, the wolf is at my door
Oh, that that was, that is, that is no more
The wolf is at my door

The future tells the truth about the past
I'm the Eighth False King to the throne, the temple of Zeus
I've got you in my crosshairs, now, ain't that a bitch?

Washington, you're next! [END]

"United Abominations" is scheduled for release in early 2007 via Roadrunner Records. MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently told Gary Graff of Billboard.com that the album, which he's producing with Jeff Balding, "has a lot of variation on it. It's got some surprises, but there's a really old-school vein to it, I would say." The group has been careful not to rush the album, either, holding sessions in London, Los Angeles and Nashville since earlier this year.
