The End of the World

~~~~~~~~~~
I woke up in the morning and I wondered,
Why everything's the same as it was.
I can't understand. No, I can't understand,
How life goes on the way it does.


Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
Or did the prophecy fail, just like before.


Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
The math all seemed to work, sort of.



Lyrics loosely based on  End Of The World, sung by Skeeter Davis.
Dedicated to Harold "The Seer" Camping.
