Dystopia Info

Dystopia is the title track and 3rd single to be released from Megadeth’s 15th studio album, Dystopia. The single was released with a supremely violent animated video that continues the theme presented by the previous single, The Threat Is Real.

It’s as much a call to arms to common people in the face of oppression as it is a nostalgic trip back to the frightening times of the Cold War era, where it draws influence. Dystopia is a dark, foreboding and fierce take on what’s happening in and to [a] society.

Dystopia Lyrics

“What you don’t know” the legend goes “can’t hurt you”
If you only want to live and die in fear
They tell us to believe just half of what we see
And absolutely nothing that we hear

Resist the twisted truth no matter what the cost
Supplant the rights with wrongs inside our heads
Outlawing all the questions to the answers
That no one likes when someone ends up dead

Dystopia

“What you don’t know” the legend goes “can’t hurt you”
If you only want to live and die in a cage
There’s panic and there’s chaos rampant in the streets
Where useless thoughts of peace are met with rage

Demoralized and overmastered people think
The quickest way to end a war is lose
Dictatorship ends starting with tyrannicide
You must destroy the cancer at its root

Dystopia
