The End Is Spoken Today

By ManWithHat

The end is coming today!
Goodbye tomorrow, goodbye next week!
Goodbye strength, no more to seek!
the end is coming today!
Goodbye wind, goodbye clouds,
Goodbye pride that shrieks too loud
the end is coming today!
Goodbye chills, goodbye hate,
Goodbye hunger that strikes too late
the end is coming today!
Goodbye pills, goodbye dark,
Goodbye evenings in the park,
the end is coming today!
Swallow the end, it's in your blood
Goodbye metal, goodbye wood
the end is coming today!
Goodbye paper, goodbye light
Goodbye pain, goodbye night
the end is coming today!

It's coming to you,
It's coming to me!
There's nothing to do!
There's nothing to see!
It's coming by bus,
It's coming by train!
There's no one but us
who have something to gain!

So goodbye laundry, goodbye checks
Goodbye quandry, goodbye sex
The end is coming today!
Where is your lover, where is your friend?
Have they come to witness, to witness the end?
Where is your father, your mother, your God?
Have they come to burn your house of Sod?
The end is coming today!

Have you seen the African hills?
Have you paid outstanding bills?
Have you smoked the Holy pipe?
Are you sure your life was ripe?
Where's the savior? Did he get a seat?
Does he put the same songs on repeat?
Is there a tune that can flavor this scene?
Is there one person who has gone where you've been,
and seen the sights, heard the frogs
Pouncing from rivers, and jumping on logs?
Who will witness to the garden you tend?
Will they give you what you want from your end?
It comes today!
