See

You can see the end of the world from here,

You can get the clearest view,

Of the preachers and the pedlars

Who watch on from higher ground

With their rhetoric and artillery,

Bombing hell out of those below.

Going to be the beginning of the end,

Shells flying endlessly

Until the Earth turns blood red.

The fire and the burning

Drifting columns of smoke

Will blot out the light of the sun.

But don’t worry that you won’t see

Because the tracer fire will light up the sky

Like those floodlit football games on TV.

You’ll see the end of the world from here,

It’ll be an awesome sight.
