It's 5am and the floorboards are trembling
But they don't nearly know the fear I feel right now
My bed coasts like a boat out on the ocean
The pictures fall and the windows all blow out
And there's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do

When everything I know has gone to pieces
And all I've learned to love falls in the sea
I'm crying out to God in heaven, save me
From the world I've known
And the world that's left to be

It doesn't long to re-prioritize
When the highway out my window just collapsed
And the houses down my street
Are falling to their feet
And the rocks have made my car in no time flat
And there's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do

When everything I know has gone to pieces
And all I've learned to love falls in the sea
I'm crying out to God in heaven, save me
From the world I've known
And the world that's left to be

My baby down the hall just laughs at it all
Her crib becomes a teacup spinning round
But this Disneyland was built on sand
And there's no mercy to be found
Underneath the angry ground

And there's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do

When everything I know has gone to pieces
And all I've learned to love falls in the sea
I'm crying out to God in heaven, "save me"
From the world I've known
And the world that's left to be
As the Pacific helps itself to all our trees
When this all is done I hope I'm still in one piece

There's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can do
And there's nothing I can do

It's not up to me
So now it's up to you
