Megadeth – Symphony of Destruction (Studio Version)



Symphony of Destruction is the second song on the thrash metal band Megadeths 5th studio album, Countdown to Extinction. The song is one of the heaviest songs written by the band. While it isnt known for its speed, its definately famed for its heaviness. The songs lyrical meaning depicts giving someone power and watching them grow.

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads aroll
Aroll…

Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

Acting like a robot,
Its metal brain corrodes.
You try to take its pulse,
Before the head explodes.
Explodes…

Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
Awarring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall…
Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

  18. De las mejores canciones que tiene megadeath esta es

  19. You tried to take his BAA-A-ALLS

  20. Megadeth fan๐ŸคSlipknot fan

  21. Sounds like a song about Putin

  22. "The songs lyrical meaning depicts giving someone power and watching them grow" lawwwwl that's an interpretation alright. Megadeth's best song. I could never handle Mustaine's voice, he sounds like someone's uncle trying to do a "rough character" voice, but this song transcends the band's failings.

  23. Megadeth, megadeth, aguante megadeth!!! ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท๐ŸคŸ

  24. Think… if hate was not hate ma love. What amazing albums?
    Pensa… se invece che l'odio e il rancore ad alimentare questa arte fosse stato l'amore… cosa sarebbe potuto nascere?
    Forse proprio ciรฒ che si puรฒ trovare venendo a curiosare dalle mie parti.

  25. This Really is a masterpiece
