Rust in Peace

"Dawn Patrol" is the eighth track off of Megadeth's fourth album Rust in Peace. This song is about sleepwalking to work through the air pollution that is warming the planet.


    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
