Bad Omen Lyrics

Artist: Megadeth
Album: Peace Sells But Who's Buying

Down fell the stars, as they
Splashed into the sea.
"Mi nomine Baphomet",
Come dance with me.
Sacrifice the virgins,
Spiritual rites.
Their master's time has come,
The moon is full tonight.

Drinking, dancing,
They worship, and toast
The devil, who's watching,
With demon's remote.
Fire, rising,
Racing in your blood.
Possessed, naive,
His service is done.

Bloody blasphemy.

Sinister's the word,
As the demon's take their fill.
An orgy's taking place,
Human blood will spill.
An act of worship,
As they conceive the ghouls.
Satan has their souls,
They sing pagan tunes.

The ceremony,
Is sure to be cursed.
They ask for his blessings,
But, down comes the worst.
Their bodies, soulless,
A corpse from the grave.
Their minds are helpless,
And, no-one can save
No-on can save them

good song but hangar 18 is better and trust is best :D

xbeat, you're a fuckin' idiot...

Trust is a great, but NON Thrash song, automatically eliminating its chances of being their "best", and Hangar is the most over-played piece in Megadeth history.

Killing is My Business - Rust In Peace are ALL their greatest songs. To say otherwise is just plain ignorant...
by drew on 10/23/2008 10:28pm
nah man
killing is my business-countdown to extinction. thats their best album besides peace sells.
by Jeebs on 1/28/2009 11:01pm
Very underrated song IMO. Still only 3rd best on the album...
1. Good Mourning/Black Friday
2. Peace Sells
by zac on 2/6/2009 9:05am
Countdown to Extinction was the countdown to sell out. Thankfully they pulled out of it by getting rid of Elfman. MEGADETH RULES!
by David on 2/21/2009 7:20pm
i think this is the 3rd best song on the album too, but for me it goes

1. My last words
2. The Conjuring

and this is my favorite album as well
by kory on 5/5/2009 9:47am
killing is my business - rust in peace their best 4 albums.

1. wake up dead
2. good mourning/black Friday
3. peace sells
by Luke on 8/26/2009 8:41am
this is a cool song
by Chris on 9/14/2009 4:19pm
How is this NOT thrash? you've gotta be all screwed up in the head Mr. Anonymous. This came out during the height of Megadeth in the 80's... which for the record was nothing but thrash at its finest. I gotta say this is probably second next to a tie between Good Mourning/Black Friday and My Last Words... great album, how I wish I was alive back then.
by Vic on 10/9/2009 4:55pm
The best song is My Last Words !!!
by OliverKlozoff on 12/5/2009 8:20pm
Chris, it was a blast >;) Saw them at Cincinnati Gardens, it was a riot. Right on about your picks. First album is great too. Looking Down the Cross (there's youtube lives), Mechanix..

This is what real thrash is made of, old school metallica,slayer,anthrax dayum that makes me want head bang, but lately metallica died after the black album, megadeths risk was wack, slayer ehh they stayed the same and anthrax I barely cared about, good thing End Game saved megadeth and WPB shows that slayer is still badass
by willie t on 4/12/2010 4:24pm
I'd say it's hard to pick the order of greatness of songs off Peace Sells, but if I had to I would say

1)Good Mourning/Black Friday (A merciless butcher who lives underground, I'm out to destroy and I will cut you down. Doesn't get more bad ass than that).
2)The Conjuring
3)Bad Omen
4)Wake Up Dead (the end riff might be the coolest on the album)
5)My Last Words
6)Devil's Island
7)Peace Sells
8)I Ain't Superstitious

But any of these songs are better than anything off most other thrash albums except maybe Reign in Blood or Killing is my Business. Among the Living by Anthrax kills it too.
by tonelogman on 4/24/2010 7:56pm
agreed with most of the comments above, but decent thrash metal is still out there - check out Opeth, Nevermore, Revocation, Lamb of God
by AshMaster on 6/18/2010 4:10pm
Erm... Opeth and Nevermore aren't thrash. Death and Progressive respectively. Try the newest Annihilator or Exodus... THAT'S thrash!
by God on 11/15/2010 2:51pm
1. Bad Omen
2. Good Mourning/Black Friday
3. Wake up Dead
4. Devils Island
5. The Conjuring

BTW, their best album is RIP m/
by owned-to-deth on 1/21/2011 4:54pm
Good Mourning is their best in this album, for sure. You can't compete with that intro, and the ending is just epic.
Bad Omen is right after.
BTW, Endgame rocks!
by Defenderofthefaith on 6/23/2011 5:01am
Countdown was a piece of crap in my opinion.
by Mike on 6/25/2011 11:19am
What does he sing at the end?
There are not correct...
by ERICKTHETHRASHER on 9/1/2011 9:06am
peace sells and rust in peace have tpbe the best shit out there!!!!!.....EVER! LOL
but yeah five magics and take no prisoners kick ass oh and lets not forget HOLY WARS!!!!!
by Shitface drunk on 11/11/2011 11:35pm
This song is about a curse being brought down that is mentioned in the devil's bible. Dave has admitted to doing black magic at one point "as you all know." And this song describes a man doing these "sadistic acts" and when he dies his family come together "They ask for his blessings" but are ignorant towards what he had practice during his life. On separate note, this album kicks your ass and makes you "shitface drunk."
by scott ian on 2/23/2012 7:26pm
did i just see some guy say anthrax wrote something anywhere near as good as ANYTHING off Peace Sells?
by Lukas on 3/23/2012 9:43pm
My top 3 Megadeth Songs ever would be:

At the end he sings “No one can say what they know.” Because it’s a satanic ritual and if you tell anyone you die.
