The Threat Is Real Lyrics

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

The clock runs out, the weakest link
A deadly strike, the threat is real

See the burnished images
Of a crest fallen 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

A fatal shot, a lust for blood
The final act, the threat is real

Justified obliteration
No one cares anymore
The messiah or a 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

The clock runs out, the weakest link
A deadly strike, the threat is real
The final act, a lust for blood
A fatal shot, the threat is real

Music & Lyrics – Dave Mustaine
