Our hearts will love you, our lips will kiss you
Our teeth will tear your flesh apart
The wheel of death and destruction is on display
Like a precious work of art
I said it's such a coup, it's nothing new, it's nothing we haven't seen
It's just a big to-do to punish you for being so unclean

All operators are standing by
To provide you with excellent service
But the monotones make you want to die
And also understandably nervous

I spoke with Gerald Ford on the Ouija board
He said the whole thing stinks
He said it's such a bore, it's nothing more
Than playing tiddlywinks

Oh, doom and gloom and doom and gloom
Hounds of hell are howling at the moon
And we'll visit Saint Joe Biden's tomb
And the eternal sands of time will run their course
Just like a headless horseman without a horse

Oh, and I don't care what any of youse thinks
When I hit the iceberg the iceberg sinks
I don't need your gravity
So go ahead and slap your big X on me

Our corporate masters bathe in profits
From their reusable nightmare
And the Action News correspondent
Displays his marvelous shiny hair
He said it's getting a little bit stuffy in here now don't you think
But never fear, the weekend's here, you can dive into your drink for more

Doom and gloom and doom and gloom
Judgment Day is surely coming soon
All the boys and girls stay in their room
Even though the story is about you
This story surely will be told without you
And the eternal sands of time will run their course
Just like a headless horseman without a horse

    My InterpretationThe "headless horseman without a horse" makes me wonder if they've played Team Fortress 2, home of the Horseless Headless Horsemann (added 2010).
