"Why Did I Fall For That" as written by and Pete Townshend....
The streets of the future littered with remains
The streets of the future littered with remains
Of both the fools and the so-called brains
Of both the fools and the so-called brains
The whole prediction is enough to kill
The whole prediction is enough to kill
But only God knows if it won't or it will
But only God knows if it won't or it will
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
Some silly creature said we'd never crack
Some silly creature said we'd never crack
Most would just survive and then bounce back
Most would just survive and then bounce back
But the rest are crying "Why'd I fall for that crap?"
But the rest are crying "Why'd I fall for that crap?"
Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?

So many rash promises sincerely made
So many rash promises sincerely made
By people who believed that we were being saved
By people who believed that we were being saved
They made us all believe that we were acting white
They made us all believe that we were acting white
But the truth is we've forgotten how we used to fight
But the truth is we've forgotten how we used to fight
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
We're impotent and neutered like whining cats
We're impotent and neutered like whining cats
We've found the piper, but we've lost the rats
We've found the piper, but we've lost the rats
But the kids are crying "Why'd I fall for that, dad?"
But the kids are crying "Why'd I fall for that, dad?"
Why did you fall?
Why did you fall?

It never rains under my umbrella
It never rains under my umbrella

Four minutes to midnight on a sunny day
Four minutes to midnight on a sunny day
Maybe if we smile, the clock'll fade away
Maybe if we smile, the clock'll fade away
Maybe we can force the hands to just reverse
Maybe we can force the hands to just reverse
Maybe a word, maybe, maybe is a curse
Maybe a word, maybe, maybe is a curse
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
Nobody knows why we fell so flat
We've never been taught to fight or to face up to facts
We've never been taught to fight or to face up to facts
We simply believe that we'd remain intact
We simply believe that we'd remain intact
But history is asking: why did you fall for that?
But history is asking: why did you fall for that?
Why did you fall?
Why did you fall?

Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?
Why did I fall for that?

    Maybe if we smile the clock'll fade away
    Maybe we can force the hands to just reverse
    Maybe a word, maybe maybe is a curse
    Nobody knows why we fell so flat
    We've never been taught to fight or to face up to facts

    But history is asking why did you fall for that
    Why did you fall?

    I think that this part is about the doomsday clock
