The world's caving in, I got tickets for two
They're not the best seats and they're not the best view
Take my hand, you can squeeze on my arm
Wake from your slumber, baby, it's gonna start
It was worth the price of admission
The two of us watch the world cave in
The world's caving in like the prophecy calls
Barter redemption for diamonds and pearls
The rich got the camel through the eye of a needle
The deed in itself was inherently evil
When all's been said and written
The two of us watch the world cave in
The world's caving in, they're releasing the souls
Trapped in the earth where we can't hear their calls
Unbelievable torture, you wouldn't believe
This is their passion, their chance to be free
But they're beaten into submission
Free at last, watch the world cave in
When all's been said and written
The two of us watch the world cave in

    General Commentthe new amsterdams generally have great lyrics, but the words in this song are incredible even by those standards (particularly the second verse..."the rich got the camel through the eye of the needle / the deed in itself was inherently evil" is just brilliantly sad).
