[Tim]
I'm gonna be straight with you
This is the end of the world
You either wake up or you don't
Apocalypse Now

[Chorus]
Apocalypse Now! Apocalypse Now! Apocalypse Now!
Apocalypse Now! Apocalypse Now! Apocalypse Now!

[TIM]
Air Force Bomber, come with the quickness
Chemical Warfare, a bucket of Sickness
Annihilation, written thesis
Bomb and Leashes, Shrapnel pieces
Political Dynasty, vigorous lies
Multi-dead, on the rise
Realize - the Demise
It's all over, No surprise

[Chorus]

[Rob]
Chilling with pipe bombs, and fun in the sun
Ain't no saving private Ryan but I've taken his guns
Cause there's a war outside and it's far from being done
I only speak for myself I know I'm not the only one
Fuckers got us with the planes set us back on 911
Familys indure the pain got a twisted view of heaven
Need a rabbi or a Reverand I just follow the ghost
I keep an extra 4 pounds right up under my coat

[Chorus]

[Tim]
Cruise missiles are Soaring
Helicopters are Whirling
Crusty cops are Firing
Bomb shelters are Siren
Soldiers are Crawling
Politicians stalling
Insurgens prawling
Casualties are Rising

[Rob]
Life is a nightmare, I dream it all day
Nothing as a promise, no, I won't hold I breath
Still talking to death, still choking the rest
Don't know when no one can be trusted only once for the left
Stepping out I'm in the dark. You wanna keep me in the cold
Ripping out ain't that your heart I'm-a causing to explode
Cause you're screwin' money, law, mother fucker '95
You don't know me keep on moving, I'm just trying to stay alive

[Chorus]
