The end's not near
It's here
Alleluia
Spread the cheer
And watch the millenarians
Throw a party for a thousand years

You won't see the pious praying
They'll be too busy flaying
All the martyrs with better ways
To stop the world decaying

If you call me I won't be home
I'm hiding from the kingdom come
They can't see everything on earth
With the satellites and the roving drones

This is why hell is underground
Like a reclaimed bad part of town
We don't want to lose our souls
We're the saints who don't want to be found

    General Comment>>Since at songmeanings.net there seems to be "the new year" and "new year" with different comments to the same song, I might as well put this one here as well. If you want to see the other comments, search for "new year" instead of "the near year".<<
    At first: This is a great song and I love it.
    And sry for my English not being perfect, I'm German and this is just school-English.

    Here's what I think:
    "The end's not near, it's here" means that there may have been a "announcement" that the end is near. but now it's there/here, it's inevitable.
    Not even the "martyrs with better ways..." will stop it. This verse is even more sarcastic than the first one that RMV1300 descriped pretty well (see "new year" comments").

    And that's when both the music and the meaning turns. in the 3rd verse the autor describes his own feelings. He is hiding from what is about to come.
    "They can't see everything on earth
    With the satellites and the roving drones"
    "They" is the Government, the men behind the curtain, the men that WANT to both see and control everything. Global Government, Enslavement, NWO, the kingdome come.
    And while the martyrs are dieing, the saints are hiding.
    A very true song.

    General CommentFirst to comment on this great song, own much? I think its pretty obvious that the song is about the turn of the millennium for the first stanza, ah, all the rest eludes me though..
