"Search Party" as written by and Julian Cope....
There will be no search party for us
No black ribbons tied on antennas
No one's going to stop traffic for us
When we're gone, we're gone
You know it's simple as that

The non-believers are shaking in their shoes
Making empty promises and fucking every thing that moves
Several widows are begging for their lives
Like it's 1999 in 1985
Well ha-ha-ha-hallelujah, we will, we will, we will get what we deserve
Hip-hip-hooray, hip-hip-replacement,
We're dancing on the rooftops,
We're hiding in the basements

I guess I always knew I wouldn't die before you
I guess I always knew I wouldn't die before you
I can't believe this is happening to me
I didn't think I'd be the last one standing now
I can't believe this is happening actually
I didn't think I'd be the last one standing now
Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God now
I didn't think I'd be the last one standing now
Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God now
I didn't think I'd be the last one standing now

Make all the non-believers say [Repeat: x4]

Its over, its over, I've had it and I'm done
Everybody get your flashlight
Everybody get your gun
Gone tomorrow, if we still exist
We'll be singing with the frogs
We'll be dancing with the locusts

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God now
The sky is falling and I hate to say I told you so
Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God now
The world was gone for nothin'
And now we're standing for an encore

There will be no search party for us

    General CommentThere's a lot wrong with the lyrics on here. I'm pretty sure it goes:

    "No black ribbons tied off into knots" ?

    "I didn't think I'd be the last one standing now" ?

    "Come tomorrow, if we still exist,
    We will be singing with the frogs
    We'll be dancing with the locusts"

    Great song.

    General Commenthere's my transcription. i filled in some blanks based on the above comments and unfortunately the above lyrics, but those i'm pretty confident are right:

    there will be no search party for us
    no black ribbons tied off into knots
    no one's going to stop traffic for us
    when were gone we're gone
    you know its simple as that

    the nonbelievers are shaking in their shoes
    making empty promises and fucking everything that moves
    several widows are begging for their lives
    like its 1999 or 1985

    well ha, ha, ha, hallelujah
    we will, we will, we will get what we deserve
    hip hip hooray, hip hip replacement
    we're dancing on the rooftops, we're hiding in the basements

    oh, i guess i always knew i wouldn't die before you
    oh, i guess i always knew i wouldn't die before you
    i can't believe this happening to me
    i didn't think i'd be the last one standing now
    i can't believe this has happened actually
    i didn't think i'd be the last one standing now
    oh my god, oh my god, oh my god now
    i didn't think i'd be the last one standing now
    oh my god, oh my god, oh my god now
    i didn't think i'd be the last one standing now

    make all the nonbelievers say
    make all the nonbelievers say
    make all the nonbelievers say
    make all the nonbelievers say

    it's over, it's over, i've had it, i'm done
    everybody get your pants on, everybody get your gun
    come tommorrow, if we still exist.
    we'll be singing with the frogs
    we'll be dancing with the locusts
    oh my god, oh my god, oh my god now
    the sky is falling and i hate to say i told you so
    oh my god, oh my god, oh my god now
    the war was not for nothing and we're standing for an encore

    there will be no search party for us
    there will be no search party for us
    there will be no search party for us
    there will be no search party for us

    General Commentanyway, i'm not entirely sure about "the war was not for nothing" bit, that's what i hear, and mine was a good deal more correct than the dude who posted this, even before i took your advice, so i'll trust mine there.

    General CommentDon't post the lyrics if you don't know them. They're even in the booklet, you don't have to try and figure it out, you can just read them if you bought the CD.
    To clear things up:

    "No black ribbons tied on anntenas"

    "There will be no search party for us
    No black ribbons tied on antennas
    No one’s going to stop traffic for us
    When we’re gone we’re gone
    You know it’s simple as that

    the non-believers are shaking in their shoes
    making empty promises and fucking everything that moves.
    Storefront windows are begging for their lives
    like its 1999 in 1985.
    Well ha ha ha hallelujah
    We will
    We will
    We will get what we deserve
    Hip hip horay
    Hip hip replacement
    We’re dancing on the roof tops
    We’re hiding in the basement

    OH! I guess I always knew I wouldn’t die before you
    OH! I guess I always knew I wouldn’t die before you
    I can’t believe this is happening to me
    I didn’t think I’d be the last one standing now
    I can’t believe this is happening, actually
    I didn’t think I’d be the last one standing now
    Oh my god
    Oh my god
    Oh my god now
    I didn’t think I’d be the last one standing now
    Oh my god
    Oh my god
    Oh my god now
    I didn’t think I’d be the last one standing now

    Make all the non-believers say
    It’s over
    It’s over
    I’ve had it and I’m done
    Every body grab your flashlights, everybody get your guns
    Come tomorrow
    If we still exist
    We’ll be singing with the frogs
    We’ll be with dancing with the locusts

    Oh my god
    Oh my god
    Oh my god now
    The sky is falling and I hate to say I told you so
    Oh my god
    Oh my god
    Oh my god now
    This world was all for nothing and we're standing for an encore

    There will be no search party for us"

    Pretty much all the comments are right and all the submitted lyrics are wrong.
