When It's all burning... when it's over...
When it's all said and done,
Were we ever even alive?
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
When it's all burning... will we see clearly?
Will we suffer at all?
Oh, it'll be perfect - running scared...
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
The sky is falling - people running scared...
This could be better for the world.
When it's all said and done,
Who will remember you?
When it's all coming down,
Who will remember me?
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
The sky is falling - people running scared...
This could be better for the world.
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...

    General CommentHmm...I'm pretty much guessing this song is about the end of the world. The lyrics are pretty straight-forward in displaying that, what does anyone else think?

    General CommentThis song is about living fully and with no regrets. When the end comes--of the world or of your own existance--will you have made a mark on the world? Will people have known and loved you? Would you wish for more time? Or would you be satisfied?

    General CommentI LOVE this song. The sound of it, the lyrics - everything. The music literally makes you feel like its the end of the world, somehow. This song leads me to consider the point of existence itself. "We should prepare for the worst" - I think is a question asking us to consider what might be in store after life...hell..."will we suffer at all?" And the line "When its all coming down, who will remember me?" reminds me that when the whole world ends - is it gonna really matter whether I was famous or whether I had a lot of friends or whether someone loved me? My fav line is "this could be better for the world"...think about that!
