im in an awful state, it's getting late and im full of question. my overactive mind has been wastin' all my time. so i've been wandering aimless everynight and sleeping every day. but it really doesnt matter anyways 'cause the second coming has been cancelled since sometime around 1982 when Jesus looked down from his cloud and saw school kids...they were duck and covering. there's nothing gonna happen out there. so lets stay in, just come on over and let me in. outside my windows the sun could be shining, but in my head it's all rain, rain and sirens. we'll have our own hollywood scandal show. you wire me up and ill be ready to go. ill do anything, ill assassinate all the stars of the your bad dreams. ill be all yours just as long as you stay here with me, 'cuase i dont wanna be alone, when these walls start closing in

    He's talking about the late cold war era when many kids were still being taught to "duck and cover" in the event of an atomic bomb going off near their schools.


    He's basically saying god gave up hope on us ever since we started needing to teach children how they were going to act in the face of near imminent death.
