{A first hand account of the apocalypse of 2143}


I woke up to my alarm clock clinging in the air
I looked to see what time it was but the clock wasn't there
I tried to remember what I had planned for the day
but the day was the night and the world was all in flames

And it was too late to do the things that I wanted to do
Too late to love the ones that I loved through and through
Too late to say the things I'd thought of once or twice
it was too late because the world was over and everybody died

Fire licked my windowpane and smoke came through my door
the walls fell at my sides and my roof became my floor
somehow I got out alive, yea somehow I survived
but everything I knew and loved on the earth had died

Now I'm in my basement, eating cans of beans
I tell you friends the way it looks it's the worst I've ever seen
There's no more cars or trash cans and no more football teams
I can't tell who's worse off now, the dead folks or me
