Megadeth – Rust In Peace... Polaris lyrics
Tremble you weaklings, cower in fear
I am your ruler, land, sea and air
Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall
I am a nuclear murderer I am Polaris
Ready to pounce at the touch of a button
My system locked in on military gluttons
I rule on land, air and sea
Pass judgement on humanity
Winds blow from the bowels of hell
Will we give warning, only time will tell
Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind
I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils
Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us
When will this cease
The warheads will all rust in peace
Bomb shelters filled to the brim
Survival such a silly whim
World leaders sell missiles cheap
Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps

High priest of holocaust, fire from the sea
Nuclear winter spreading disease
The day of final conflict
All pay the price
The third world war
Rapes peace, takes life
Back to the start, talk of the part
When the earth was cold as ice
Total dismay as the sun passed away
And the days where black as night

Eradication of earth's
Population loves Polaris

    Rust In Peace... Polaris is a song about Nuclear Missiles. The song is a story, and this particular story is told from the perspective of a nuclear bomb. This bomb's name is Polaris. The bomb is the god of the land. It rules all. The meaning behind it is that nuclear warfare is terrible. It explains the effects of fallout, disease and death. "The warheads will all rust in peace." This line is about just that: the hundreds of nuclear weapons that have been made, will never be used. They will simply rust in the silos, while humans cower in bunkers and shelters, under fear of the world leaders. The world leaders have all the power. Even America, if it wanted, could bring the world to its knees with only a few launch codes and button presses, and people would have no power.
