Dolbro Dan – Anticipation (The Anticipation Is Killing Me) lyrics

So the icebergs are melting
Now I guess we're all screwed
Better get swimming lessons
Better yet – a canoe
They say Turn off the lights
When you're leaving the room
Still the industry carries on
Pumping out fumes

And the anticipation is killing me

Fresh air's getting scarce
Since they cut down the trees
It's getting so bad
Soon they'll charge you to breathe
You'll need written permission
To pass on your seed
But don't ask us in english
We all talk chinese

And the anticipation is killing me

I could sing you a song
Like the others before
Protesting against
Every aspect of war
It's hard to believe
It's easy to ignore
But there's been quite a few
And there's room for one more

And the anticipation is killing me

Some say the world is 12, 000 years old
Just try not to mention
The dinosaur bones
Refuse evolution
Your science is wrong
Our design is divine
Like a hydrogen bomb

And the anticipation is killing me
And the anticipation is killing me

This vicious, religious
Resistance to change
Is holding us hostage
Now isn't it strange
It's already written
Just do as it says
Bring on Armageddon
Don't want nothing less

And the anticipation is killing me

By 2100 I'll be long gone
Here's your inheritance
My blue eyed son
God made us
Clay baked us
And then broke the mold
We're hungry and helpless
Left out in the cold

We're in for a penny
We're in for a pound
We're on borrowed time
No-one says it out loud
Greed's a disease
The downfall of man
So don't say you weren't warned
When the shit hits the fan
