lyrics

So, we ducked that crazy cloud,
and we ran right into a crowd,
Holding signs with some acetylene heart.
They were chanting ‘bout damnation,
making manic proclamations,
‘Bout the way this world is fallin’ apart.
And we were a couple drinks from plastered,
but we were drunk enough to ask ‘em,
What it was that they were tryin’ to say.
They said: we’re all gonna die—
here and now or by-and-by—
so in the meantime,
we better live in God’s way.

But we jumped up, we said:
Hold up! What you tryin’ to pull?!
Now, we’ve heard enough
of this hellfire-and-brimstone stuff.
These Endtime-fears, we know full-well.
And we got no idea where
we’re going from here,
but we know it’s nothing new.
And we got no way to tell, honey,
but let’s just wait until we all get through.
No, there is no way to tell,
so let’s just wait until we all get through.

But, you got this old VCR that you bought
at a yard sale down the street,
And you go this old machination,
making clackin’clankin’ sounds,
just like stompin’ feet,
And you’ve got a spinning wheel
and a wishing well
in a box above your bed,
And you got these homemade lists,
deep inside of your chest,
of the things you still might need.

Sirens: And I know that it comes on
awful slow without someone.

But, you gotta know
there’s no hope in your views
when the bulk of your news
starts to verge on fanatic,
You got a note from the Pope,
that you found in the bottom of a box
that was sealed in some attic,
And it said: “Wait! Don’t forget
that the end of this world
hasn’t happened yet.
Don’t let doubt and regret
make you bitter for life
when it tastes so sweet.
It tastes so sweet.”

But, you got this old VCR that you bought
at a yard sale down the street,
And you go this old machination,
making clackin’clankin’ sounds,
just like stompin’ feet,
And you’ve got a spinning wheel
and a wishing well
in a box above your bed,
And you got these homemade lists,
deep inside of your chest,
of the things you still might need.
