That's great
It starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes
And airplanes
Lenny Bruce is not afraid

Eye of a hurricane
Listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs
Dummy, serve your own needs
Speed it up a notch, speed
Grunt, no, strength
When the ladders start to clatter
With dinner fight down
Height, wire in the fire
Represent the seven games
And a government for hire
And a combat site
If he was a-coming
In a hurry with the furies
Breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters
Baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane
Fine
Then
Uh-oh, overflow
Population cornered
Look what it'll do
Save yourself
Serve yourself
World serves its own needs
Listen to your heartbeat
Tell me that the rich
Are in the river 'cause of riots

You patriotic, patriotic
Slam fight, right might
Feelin' pretty pyched

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
Lock him in and uniforming
Book-burning, blood-letting
Every motive escalate
Automote-incinerate
Light a candle, light a motor
Step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crushed
Oh, this means no fear
Cavalier
Renegade steer clear
A tournament
A tournament
A tournament of lies
Offer me solutions
Offer me alternatives
I'll decline

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine
I feel fine
I feel fine

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine

The other night I dreamt of knives
Continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line
Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev
Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Birthday party
Cheesecake
Jelly bean boom

You symbiotic, patriotic
Slam foot neck
Right? Right

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine

    General CommentMan I can't believe I'm the first to say that this guy does a great cover of this song. I mean I've never heard anyone do it and I actually liked it. I mean I remember that Gwen Stefani couldn't even do it when she had the lyrics running in front of her.... WAY TO GO RIDDLIN KIDS!
