"Symphony of Destruction" is the second track off of Megadeth's fifth studio album, Countdown to Extinction. The song revolves around themes of a world leader taking control and eventually being replaced by someone better, as quoted in the last verse, "a peaceful man stands tall".

LyricsEdit

    You take a mortal man
    And put him in control
    Watch him become a god
    Watch people's heads a-roll
    A-roll
    A-roll
    
    Just like the Pied Piper
    Led rats through the streets
    We dance like marionettes
    Swaying to the symphony of destruction
    
    Acting like a robot
    Its metal brain corrodes
    You try to take its pulse
    Before the head explodes
    Explodes... explodes...
    
    Just like the Pied Piper
    Led rats through the streets
    We dance like marionettes
    Swaying to the symphony of destruction
    
    The earth starts to rumble
    World powers fall
    A-warring for the heavens
    A peaceful man stands tall
    Tall... tall...
    
    Just like the Pied Piper
    Led rats through the streets
    We dance like marionettes
    Swaying to the symphony of destruction
