When the end of the world came
It passed like an awkward remark.
No light for believers
No scientists left in the dark
And no-one proved right
And no-one was wrong
We weren’t left alone
And we didn’t belong
When the end of the world came
It passed like an awkward remark

When the end of the world came
We thought they were just crying wolf again
No time for forgiveness
No time for the meaningless blame again
And the sound, it was soft
And the weather was warm
The sky had forgotten
To put up a storm
When the end of the world came
We thought they were just crying wolf.

We knew we were the fortunate ones
We’d always been right and we knew all along
That if there is a hell, it’s a heavenly song
Sung by those we’d always labelled as wrong.

When the end of the world came
Everyone swore that they’d seen it coming
No matter their creed or conviction
They knew they had seen it coming
They’d seen the pattern
In scriptures or Saturn
In beakers or latin
Dan Brown’s antimatter
The end of the world came
And everyone swore that they’d known.

When the end of the world came
We all were sorta relieved!
We looked at our pictures
And saw what we’d finally achieved.
No need for regret
And forget all the need
All of our assets
Were frozen or freed
When the end of the world came
We all looked kinda relieved.

We knew we were the fortunate ones
We’d always been right and we knew all along
That if there is a hell, it’s a heavenly song
Sung by those who’d always labelled us as wrong

When the end of the world came
I sat and I sipped my earl grey.
No-one was gendered or violent
Or straight or gay
No-one afflicted
By war or religion
We all turned to dust
And the dust was beginning
To bundle together
To start the whole story again…
