It’s The End Of The World (As We Know It)

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane
And 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, no
Ladder start to clatter with fear fight down height

Fire in a wire, 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

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
But 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 candle, light a votive. Step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh oh, this means no fear cavalier
Renegade steer clear! A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives, I decline

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
I feel fine
I feel fine

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.
