ODE TO THE APOCALYPSE
Ode to the Apocalypse
The sound of sirens screaming,
The roar of firetrucks rolling.
Policemen running, soldiers shooting
Baby, come and kiss me now.
The earthquakes rock the buildings,
You can feel the floors tremble,
And the air is filled with thunder
Let me hold you now.
Listen to the sirens
watch the roaring fire;
While the city crumbles
We can love away the night.
Four housemen must be riding
On a long and lonely road.
Soon they'll come to touch us too
Let's all greet them with a smile.
For the moment pretend
That there's nothing here but us.
While the holocaust is growing,
Raging, surging all-consuming.
Let me spend my last night with you;
This is no time to deny
My love for you or yours for me
Baby, our last chance is now.
For all the buildings are tumbling,
There's a bright light in the West,
And the wind and waves are coming -
Let's not think of the times we missed.
