"End Of The World News" as written by and Mcrae....
You wake up to the sound of alarms
And you're driving your fabulous car
Listening to the music that reminds you
You used to be young, you used to be young

And now you're searching for a sign with your name
To define you the king of the game
What will you do when there's nothing left
For you to earn and for you to learn?

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground
And from this high rise view, looking down on you
I'm not the one wasting my time

And every culture has its own magazine
And information takes the place of your dreams
Finding ways to fill up the silence
But it's all that you need, turn on your TV

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground
And from this high rise view, looking down on you
I'm not the one wasting my time

This is the end of the world news
This is the end of the world news, sponsored by God

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground
And from this high rise view, looking down on you
I'm not the one wasting my time

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground
And from this high rise view, looking down on you
I'm not the one wasting my time

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground
And from this high rise view, looking down on you
I'm not the one wasting my time

So dose me up, once is not enough
I can still see the ground

    General CommentIts about the pointlessness and futility of modern life and convenience, how we take it all for granted, and we won't be the one to pay the price, the planet will be. The world is ending slowly and he'd rather be dosed up to his eyeballs that see it all happen, and he doesn't want to be able to see the ground and see what's becoming of it and the world beneath his feet

    General Commenti believe that in this song the author wants to show that the world is going crazy and that he'd rather get high than live in it for real. The title of the song is a pun : in England, one of the most famous newspaper is called "news of the world". So, basically, the song shows how worried about the world the author is.

    General CommentIt's about the beginning of the end. Watching the rot happen from above. The 'sponsored by God' bit got Tom in a bit of trouble after 9-11 (even though the song was written years before). The song wasn't played on most radio stations. It's about how everyone is trying to regain their youth, or be a success at the detriment of everyone and evrything else.

    General CommentIts much more simple than that.......it is a song about the emptiness of modern life. Its charts the sadness and disappointment of adult life....looking back to when things were cool when you were young through having to live the corporate life. He is basically sticking two fingers up to the monotonous life.....he isn't wasting his time by being a songwriter...though has probably been told such
