That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane-
Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn-
World serves it's own needs, don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
Speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,down hight Wire in a fire, representing seven games in a government for hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered, crop. Look at that low plane! Fine, then. Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do.Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves it's own needs Listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture andthe 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
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. Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.Light a candle, light a motive. step down, step down. Watch your heel crush, crush. Uh-oh, this means no fear- cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

(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 time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
It's time I had some time alone)
I feel fine

It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
(it's time I had some time alone)

The other night I tripped a nice 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, but neck, right? Right

It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
(it's time I had some time alone)

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 time I had some time alone)

It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
(it's time I had some time alone)

It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(it's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
(it's time I had some time alone)
(fade)
