All you have to do is combine our knowledge of history with the lessons of nature to know that nothing lasts. So why do we hold on so tightly to things that no longer serve us? Fear, of course. And that’s what culture loves the most. Culture will hold on at any cost. It doesn’t care about you or me. And fear is the go-to position.
From the fear of God to the fear of paying the mortgage to the fear of not being seen as cool. It’s a lockdown. Culture has us in a chokehold.
That's great, it starts with an earthquake,birds and snakes, an aeroplaneAnd Lenny Bruce is not afraidEye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churnWorld serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs.Feed it off an aux, speak, gruntNo strengththe ladder starts to clatter with the fear, fight down height.Wire in a fire, representing seven gameswith a government for hire and a combat site.Left of West and coming in a hurry with the furiesbreathing down your neck.Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop.Look at that low playing! Fine then.Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do.Save yourself, serve yourself.World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed.Dummy with the rapture and the reverent in 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 and I feel fine.
Six o'clock - TV hour.Don't get caught in foreign towers.Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.Locking in uniforming, book burning, blood letting.Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.Light a candle, light a votive.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 alternativesAnd I decline.
The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide.Mountains sit in a lineLeonard Bernstein.Leonid Breshnev, Lester Bangs and Lenny Bruce.Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right?Right.
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... fine...
(It's time I had some time alone,It's time I had some time alone,It's time I had some time aloneI feel fine...)
