Wave goodbye to yourself
And wave goodbye to your friends
This is the end of the world

What do you think about Western Civilization?
I fear Ghandi said it best:
"It would be a good idea."

Highly advanced in technology
Not so much evolutionarily
Shotguns replace the games which we came from.
Machine guns are the new sticks and stones.

Peaceful
Conflict resolution.
Save it for another day, love.
Today we all die,
Until no one is left.
Or until the Calendar reads:
Wave goodbye to your friends
This is the end of the world.

I think that I would like to be buried on a beautiful hilltop,
With a view of green valley

To breathe in the view of the glorious day.
To spy fallen stars as they criss-cross the sky.
The moonlight revealing the peace that alludes us,
All of our years on this earth.
And the one thing I've been searching for...
Yeah, the one thing I've been fighting for...

Peaceful
Conflict resolution
Save it for another day, love.
Today we all die.
Until no one is left.
Or until the Calendar reads:
Wave goodbye to yourself
This is the end of the world.

And I can list them like a cliche in a 60s folk song
Bring me your sick and your poor and your huddled masses yearning, yeah

But today instead of handing out invitations
Maybe liberty drops holy things on other nations.
Capitalist hogs feeding from the trough.
When the pig get too fat
Then the pig's time is up.

Peaceful
Conflict resolution
Save it for another day, love.
Today we all die.
Until no one is left.
Or until the Calendar reads:
Wave goodbye to friends
This is the end of the world.
