We’re just sitting here waiting for the end of the world.
The alarm was sounded long ago but nobody heard.
From the water, to the land, and upward into the sky.
No solutions, only paranoia, ignorance, and lies.
We’re sleepwalking our way off of the edge of a cliff.
We’re being led by politicians led by lobbyists.
If there are survivors they look back at us with only disdain.
How could so many see it happen and have nothing to say?
We’re sleepwalking our way into the eye of the sun.
The earth will flourish again when all of us are gone.

Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world as it turned its head.
Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world.

It’s impossible for anyone to ignore all the signs.
An earthquake like a clog shaking off a flea from a bite.
Or send a rising tide to shore to try to wash off the burn.
It’s happening more each day but will anybody learn?
The party’s over when we reach the point of no return.
We had our fun but it’s a tab that no one here can afford.
We’re sleepwalking our way into the cage of the beast.
Mother earth is trying to say “You’re no longer welcome here!”

Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world as it turned its head.
Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world.


We’re just sitting here waiting for the end of the world.
The alarm was sounded long ago but nobody heard.
We’re sleepwalking our way into the eye of the sun.
The earth will flourish again when all of us are gone.
The party’s over when we reach the point of no return.
We had our fun but it’s a tab that no one here can afford.
We’re sleepwalking our way into the cage of the beast.
Mother earth is trying to say “You’re no longer welcome here!”

Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world as it turned its head.
Our time has come.
Now we’re just waiting for the midnight sun.
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world.

Our time has come (We’re sleepwalking our way into the cage of the beast)
Our time has come (We’re sleepwalking our way into the eye of the sun)

Our time has come (We’re sleepwalking our way into the cage of the beast)
Our time has come (We’re sleepwalking our way into the eye of the sun)
“I thought they’d like it better here,”
said the world.
