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.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake,
Birds, snakes, and 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.

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.

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.

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.

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! Right! Right!

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.

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.
