Megadeth - Black Swan Lyrics




I thought a desire worth any pleasure
Could never really be a sin in vain
A hundred and one shots of opportunity
I'd gladly take them all again, and again, and again

My angels left me with sorrows all my own
And now I'm here with the devil all my own

Just like a churchyard shadow creeping after me
Its only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me

I promised on my soul not to get carried away
It always starts out psychedelic and then it turns to black
My head starts swaying; I forgot what was it I was saying?
I don't know where I am and I'll never, never make it back

I sealed my fate, and I paid my debt; I fell from grace with deep regret

[Chorus]

There's nothing left to see, there's nothing left of me

    My personal favorite megadeth song. Nothing beats this

    smmate 14

    +HP Films damn Angry again is awesome, I would listen to it everyday on my way to school. That's another favorite of mine

    Osiris D. Aimztaroth

    This version thought

    Leon Horoshiy

    Black swan from UA beats this one

    Henrique Coelho

    this intro is insane omg

    Val'ethus

    Have u not heard of black friday?

  19. Johnny Boy!

    THAT FUCKING INTRO! I WANT THAT TO PLAY EVERY TIME I ENTER A FUCKING ROOM!

  20. pkj77

    i hate when they mess around with songs allready released in a studio version or complete Demo form

  21. Felipe González

    Excelente tema, muy pegadizo y con una letra muy profunda.

  22. Cheshire Priest

    house of the 13 ghosts featuring.Milkey.bone and beetlejizz

  23. DarkAnime806

    This album is SICK!

  24. Nerdy John

    It kinda sucks for me that Dave cut out that sweet little melody in the intro. However, insane soloing seems to work as well

  25. Angel D. Torres

    I kinda like this one more than the UA version because it sounds darker and really heavier than the other one. Plus, this shredding intro kicks and destroys asses.

    Krispynachos 99

    +Angel Torres destroys asses like a BBC

    ksio89

    @Krispynachos 99 lmao

  26. Lift4Dead ___

    My angels left me, sorrows are my own

  27. sevb163

    I think theres another version of this song in United Abominations, anyone?

    Pablo Iraheta

    Yes, there is... and it's better than this...

    RaderizDorret

    @Pablo Iraheta
    Actually I like this one better than on UA, mainly because how Dave merged the ending solo of "Fast Lane" right into the intro solo for this version of Black Swan.

    Alaa Qusous

    @Pablo Iraheta no

    Ben Rai

    +Pablo Iraheta I prefered the other too, due to the intro

    Brandor Elfrink

    jimivader .fy I know it was recorded for that album and the first version was a bonus mp3 for preordering UA but unless the album has been re-released, it's not technically on it.

  28. pat smith

    This version is too messy, too busy, too overly "re-arranged", the mixing is over-saturated, and I hate to say it, but the guitar solos are Actually kind of sloppy... I like the original better.

    IronPandemonium

    only "too" anything bad if your sound system sucks dog lol

    this version CRUSHES the united abominations' original (an album which i prefer over th1rt3en, even)

    Ron Acord

    This is much heavier than the UA version, I like this one better but I can see your point.

    Obaam Obama obbama

    Ron Acord r/woosh

  29. Luciano Sabadini

    la verdad no se que version es mejor...la del United Abominations o esta :3

  30. Patron1SD

    lol no pues si... que vida tienes putin.. jajaja

  31. AnDreZ

    Ese Momento en el que escuchas esto y dices: Genial que ahun quede Buena musica en el mundo... ♪♫♪♫ MEGADETH

  33. Beijing yank

    This is one of my favorite rock songs for the last thirty or forty years. American Guitar kicks azz.

  40. Kalimaster88

  41. Victor Ruiz

    this is a real megadeth song.if it wasnt real it would be some shitty cover with lack of true musical emotion

  42. Victor Ruiz

    you want mainstream go listen to slayer

  43. Jose Uray

    Exelente tema lml

  44. Path of Gore

    Does anyone have tabs for the solos, Ive tried finding them, but no one seems to know the notation... I've tried tabbing it out, but it didn't sound good. Please help.

  45. RaderizDorret

    Not a fan of risk either, but playing with a more modern tone/style doesn't make it mainstream. GTFO, hipster loser.

  46. Wolo Stampede

    what? megadeth is minus mainstream than metallica everybody know it keep trying hipster

  47. TheWolfZX

    nop, a esas personas no les gustó el tema ._. hay que tener altura de mira no a todos nos gusta está magnifica obra de arte.

  72. zwareshag

    my angels left me, sorrows are my own, lines to step up and claim your manhood lol

  73. Spiral0Architect

    Album is so good! Anthrax may have gone to the popular side of the scene, but megadeth is still megadeth!

  74. Humberto Rodriguez

    @manimal75 dude, calm the hell down... you can take an arrow in the knee if u want to.

  75. imtheking yeh

  77. manimal75

    I can't find the CD ANYWHERE,ITS SOLD OUT LIKE CRAZY!!! I finally had to get it off ebay!!! AND IT IS THE BEST ALBUM I'VE EVER BOUGHT SINCE EXTINCTION!!! WAY TO KICK THE SO CALLED 'METAL BANDS' IN THE ASS BOYS!!!!! U GUYS ARE TIMELESS!!! DAVE FOR PRESIDENT 2012!!!!!!!!

  78. 3d yaniv

    in my eyes theres a lot of things-this is not a song i would expect from megadeth to place it in a new album after four years that everyone listened to it- and its an average song at best- it's rediculiouse

  79. Paul Schafer

    @bojanklesexperience Im so glad metallica finally bombed on an album. They havent been metal since theyre first 3 albums.

  80. Link07250

    @shabatdati
    Bands can't play a song more than once in your eyes?

  81. 3d yaniv

    wtf this song has to do with the new record? it's an old song from 2007 united abominations- oh im tired of this

  82. Falsedeth

    I can listen to this album all day :D

  83. Santiago Alvear

    prefiero0o la vercion que tengo en mp3 jejejeje

  84. efee efewfef

    metallica a de estar cagandose

  85. efee efewfef

    lulu= shit
    13=awesome

  86. Acabo El Silencio

    metallica debe estar llorando como las niñitas que son junto a LULU.

  87. sacredgore

    mientras metallica hace mierda con ese tipo que no se como se llama.... MEGADETH SIGUE MEJORANDO....

  88. Robert Catalano

    @SuzukaStinger i like both bands alot but i would still rather listen to metallica any day though.. just saying

  89. Mad Scientist

    @pacocena11 so fucking true.

  90. Aleejandro Muñoz

    exelent song guys..one of my favourites songs of 13 album....l,,l,

  91. Franco Diaz

    guys this is not a competition of who is better like metalllica and megadeth

  92. mr Jones

    black swan?

  93. Ryan Rank

    @SuzukaStinger dude stfu, they dont hate megadeth its the ignorant people like you that like to talk shit. And Lulu isn't even metallicas "album" it is Lou reeds with metallicas instrumentals. And I love both bands so seriously now

  94. Poisonnachos

    What I like about TH1RT3EN is that most of the songs (Sudden death, Public enemy no 1 and this one are the only ones i could think of at the moment) is that they have 3 or more different parts (Excluding the solos) Unlike most songs which only have Verse and Chorus

  95. Francisco Suarez

    @bojanklesexperience well megadeth finally sold more cds than metallica,its fair because they were the shadow of metallica for more than 20 years

  96. Roberto Soto

    @SuzukaStinger metallica will suck forever and megadeth still rules!

  97. nest1113

    @SuzukaStinger There you got it, lou reed have already seen this

  98. SuperDZproductions

    just my opinion... this sounds pretty tame compared to what i was expecting

  99. ytaccno3

    @SuzukaStinger Lou Reed has now watched this video.
