Dawn Patrol

Dawn Patrol

The song Dawn Patrol describes a dystopian future for civilisation resulting from humanity’s ignorance of its effect on the world. The dawn patrol could be a new race of rulers, it could also be military guardians watching over the wastelands that humanity has left behind through pollution and war, whilst we struggle for survival underground.

Dawn Patrol is the 8th song from Megadeth’s fourth studio album Rust In Peace.

Dawn Patrol Lyrics

Thermal count is rising
In perpetual writhing
The primordial ooze
And the sanity they lose

Awakened in the morning
To more air pollution warnings
Still we sleepwalk off to work
While our nervous systems jerk

Pretending not to notice
How history had forebode us
With the green house in effect
Our environment was wrecked

Now, I can only laugh
As I read our epitaph
We end our lives as moles
In the dark of dawn patrol

Music – Ellefson
Lyrics – Mustaine
