Hangar 18

Hangar 18

Hangar 18 was penned by Dave Mustaine about ‘nonsensical’ military intelligence and his frustration as to why the government was hiding things from the people. The video for Hangar 18 depicts an alien landing at the infamous Roswell Base (Area 51), a focus of generations of conspiracy theories about alien life forms being caught and experimented on.

Hangar 18 is the second track on Megadeth’s 4th studio album, Rust In Peace.

Hangar 18 Lyrics

Welcome to our fortress tall
I’ll take some time to show you around
Impossible to break these walls
For you see the steel is much too strong
Computer banks to rule the world
Instruments to sight the stars

Possibly I’ve seen to much
Hangar 18 I know too much

Solo – Friedman

Foreign life forms inventory
Suspended state of cryogenics
Selective amnesia’s the story
Believed foretold but who’d suspect
Military intelligence
Two words combined that can’t make sense

Possibly I’ve seen to much
Hangar 18 I know too much
