"Just The Flu" as written by and Mike Burkett....
Looking back to the past,
Predictions of the end
Unseen ultra violet rays
Are beating on my head
Nuclear threat want to bet will be our demise
The day will come when we'll look to apocalyptic skies

When the news had spread, that soon we'd all be dead
Well it just blew our minds
No one could have guessed that our worst fears at best
Figments of our time

So it seems that our dreams will never come to be
How can such a stupid thing destroy humanity?
A few weeks till extinction and there's nothing we can do
A message sent to other worlds will say "It was just the flu"

There's no lesson to be learned
There's no one left to learn it

    General Commentquoted from a nofx interview on their official site, ur all wrong by the looks of it :P

    MRR: Is one of you’re new songs you sing about something like, “There’s no lesson to be learned if there’s nobody here to learn it.” Are NOFX actually getting sensitive or peace punky?

    Fat Mike: Oh, no. Not at all. It was either Stephen King or Harlan Ellison who wrote a story about everybody dying of the flu. So it’s like all that nuclear power, peace punk stuff is bogus, it’s just a virus that killed everybody.
