"Endgame" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
Attention! Attention!
All citizens are ordered to report to their District detention centers!
Do not return to your homes,
Do not contact anyone!
Do not use any cellular or G-P-S devices!
Surrender all weapons at once!
Attention! This way to the camps!

I woke up in a black FEMA box
Darkness was all around me, in my coffin
My dreams are all nightmares anymore
And this is what I dream every night

The Leader of the New World Order, the President of the United States
Has declared anyone now residing inside the US of A
Without the R-F-I-D chip, you're just an illegal alien
An enemy combatant of America, welcome to the New World Order

This is the end of the road, this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life, this is the

A society in a society, inside the fence life as you know it stops
They got their rules of conduct and we got ours
Be quick or be dead, you crumble up and die, the clock is
Ticking so slowly and so much can happen in an hour

I learned my lessons the hard way, every scar I earned
I had to bleed, inside the day yard
A system of controlled movement, like a giant ant farm
Any time is long time, now you're not in charge of your time anymore

The Ex-President signed a secret bill that can
Land a legal US Citizen in jail and the
Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
They say a Concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!

Refuse the chip? Ha! Get persecute and beat by the
Tyranny of Mind control, for the mark of the beast
All rights removed, you're punished, captured, and enslaved
Believe me when I say, this is the endgame!

    General CommentThis song is great. When I first heard it I was blown away. I couldn't believe Dave was willing to put his reputation and life at risk by talking about the New World Order and government in such an honest and truthful way. I'm happy Dave decided to stand up for what he believes in, and write a song which will hopefully make people aware and eventually allow them to wake up.

    Though I'm not sure (I haven't read any quotes, and I missed the Alex Jones interview), it's likely that the Alex Jones movie "Endgame" inspired this song to some extent.

    Look up "New World Order." Visit the Infowars website. Watch the movie "Endgame". Learn about these things for yourself instead of taking Alex Jones', Dave Mustaine's, or anyone else's word for it. And realize that all of the rights that Bush took away from Americans to fight "terrorists" have not been given back by Obama. And the next president won't give them back either. Because the erosion of rights, and increasing of Big Brother surveillance is all part of a plan to create a society of controlled people. Obama may not be the Antichrist, or leader of a New World Order, but he's no savior either. And he isn't reversing laws, restoring rights, or keeping the spying and secret prisons from existing. He's just the guy who gets a lot of love because Bush played the role of "Evil President" so well. Like "Good Cop, Bad Cop", Obama has come in after Bush, and although they work for the same people, Obama looks like a great guy next to Bush. But in reality, the laws Bush passed still exist, and Obama has furthered the New World Order agenda. Maybe Obama won't implement detention centers or "FEMA camps", but he hasn't made it impossible for the next guy either.

    And if Obama, the president everyone loves, isn't fighting for your rights, why do you think he's better than Bush? And who's to say the next president won't establish detention camps legally, because Obama has done NOTHING to change the laws while he has the chance?

    Song MeaningWell it is kind of obvious what this song is about. The New World Order and FEMA Death camps. The whole album is heavily influenced by the documentary ENDGAME. David Mustaine is being interviewed by the creator of the film today.

    General CommentShredder94, "No and no"?? Really? Did you listen to the whole song, or read all of the lyrics? I'm pretty sure what Kingdrew122 and Elfie123 have said is accurate. You're partially right though, when you say this song is about Bush:

    "The ex-president signed a secret bill that can
    Land a legal US citizen in jail and the
    Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
    They say a concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!"

    That part is referring to Bush, but the rest of the song refers to the protagonist's nightmares of, or life in, a New World Order. Maybe you don't know about the NWO, but the song mentions an unknown president who will bring about a New World Order. Your country is not yet a part of the NWO, not officially anyway. So this song is set in the future, not the past.

    You are also partially correct to state that Bush signed "a bill into law that nowone knew about for a period of some time, and the bill aloud it to be legal for people to be placed into detention centers if they contributed to parties that bush considered terrorism". Bush passed laws that increase the ability of government agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA) to spy on and detain citizens who are considered terrorists. Other laws were passed before Bush became president which included plans for martial law and detention centers to be established in the case of emergency.

    But you must also be aware that Obama has done nothing to reverse these laws, and has not even tried to get the American people their rights back. Bush may have passed the laws, but Obama is running things the same way, minus the harsh criticism that Bush faced.

    I'm reminded of the famous lyrics from The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again": Meet the new boss / Same as the old boss.

    General CommentNo and no, every thing that has been said about this song is wrong. This song is really about ex-president George w. Bush signing a bill into law that nowone knew about for a period of some time, and the bill aloud it to be legal for people to be placed into detention centers if they contributed to parties that bush considered terrorism. I know it sounds weird, but dave states this in an interview, look into it and see
