Apocalypse, Please Be True

Sat back waiting for the world to end
It was on TV, so I knew that it would happen
Haven’t paid my bills, haven’t paid my rent
What’s the point?
You don’t pay bills in heaven

I was gonna tell my girlfriend that we’re through
But we’re gonna turn to vapor, which is great, now I don’t have to
Dr.Phil said we’ll soon be gone
And that guy is never wrong

Not again.
No fires. No floods. No acid rain.
What will we do?
Apocalypse, please be true.

I was gonna go to college, gonna get some skills
What’s the point? Only finish one semester
I would be an engineer, build a brave new world
but the floods will come and you can’t build underwater
We could take a sky rocket into space
It’s a million a ticket; I don’t have a penny
The news said we’ll soon be gone
I know the news is never wrong

Not again.
No fires. No floods. No acid rain.
What will we do?
Apocalypse, please be true.

Sat back waiting for the world to end
It was on TV, so I knew that it would happen
Haven’t paid my bills, haven’t paid my rent
What’s the point?
We don’t pay bills in heaven
Sold all my possessions, cashed ‘em in
Living like a rock star, maxing out my credit
Now I’m ready for the world to end
I know, they won’t be wrong again

Not again.
No fires. No floods. No acid rain.
What will we do?
Apocalypse, please be true.

Not again.
No fires. No floods. No acid rain.
What will we do?
Apocalypse, please be true.
