End of the World

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds, snakes, an aeroplanes, Lenny
Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world serves its
own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed it off an aux speak, grunt, no,
strength, Ladder start to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire in a fire, representing
seven games, a government for hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in a
hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trumped,
tethered cropped. Look at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
common food, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs,
listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right, right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

Chorus:
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers. Slash and burn, return, listen
to yourself churn. Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting. Every motive escalate.
Automotive incinerate. Light a votive, light a candle. Step down, step down. Watch your
heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament,
tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

Chorus x 2

The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line, Leonard
Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs. Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly
bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right.

Chorus x 2
