And they say
That the sky is falling
Or something like that

And they say
That a great fire is coming
All the blue, will turn to black

Our cigarettes are burning
All over the world tonight
And all the lovers are crying
As the aeroplanes take flight

And they say
That the birds are dying
And the songs they sing are going out of tune

And they know
The ones up there are lying
As they say we cry that it’s too late too soon

Our plastic bags are sailing
All over the world tonight
And all the lovers are crying
As their canaries (?) take flight

And they say
That today you’re leaving
And you won’t even begin to even tell me why

But if I ever needed proof the world was ending
Tonight
(It’s) that hopeless, faraway look in your eye

Our plastic bags are sailing
Over the deep brown sea
And all the fish are not swimming
They’re floating with their backs to me
