"It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" as written by and Michael Mills Bill Berry....
That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and
Snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world
Serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed

It off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder
Start to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire
In a fire, representing seven games, a government
For hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in

A hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team
By team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
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 revered and 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, crushed, uh-oh, this means no
Fear cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament,
Tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions,
Offer me alternatives and I decline.

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.

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 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)

    General CommentNo one commented on this song?! It's a great cover of a great song. Haha, I was laughing so hard once I saw that The Suicide Machines re-did an REM song. I got a kick out of that.
