"Deadly Nightshade" is the 12th track of the 13th Megadeth album Th1rt3en. It is about soothing feeling of being in a garden at midnight causing them to lose breath, mind and sight.


    Come now my lovely, won’t you
    Take a midnight stroll with me?
    Through the misty air the things
    I keep I shouldn’t dare
    My garden’s so inviting, and its
    Deadly blooms are hiding
    Be careful what you touch
    Lest the grave is what you lust
    Draw the blinds, you’re getting tired
    Paralyzed, don’t close your eyes
    Gripped with fear, your dreams become nightmares
    From the Deadly Nightshade
    Each night at midnight
    Dating back into the fog of time
    Another victim falls
    The things I’ve done; the voices call
    The Hourglass runs out on us
    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
    The killers must be fed, the soil is red
    Now that you’re dead
    Delirium – your burning throat
    Mania – your heart rate soars
    Hallucination – you’re losing your mind
    Suffocation – cannot breathe; you’re going blind
