|It was an extremely average day, |
Without a single obstacle in my path
Until I was bored, listening to the radio,
And I heard this said:
"It's very unfortunate I have to say this,
But the world is going to end today"
So said some country's president,
In tears as he spoke...
Out the window was a huge flock of birds,
Congesting to cover up the sky
Swallowing up the crescent moon,
Headed some unknown direction...
I had a half-finished game with no save;
A scarcely-touched textbook lay on my desk
And to stop my body from trembling,
I promptly put on my headphones
Just as I was listening to an obscure artist,
A number they did with an unknown title,
Just as it came to my ears, I heard:
"You want to survive, yes?"
Waving over the wriggling world,
The skyscrapers seemed to tremble
This voice seemed unmistakable:
It was my own, which I tired of hearing
"If you cross that hill, then in 20 seconds,
You'll know what I mean, for better or worse
Don't doubt, just listen close - go 20 seconds ahead..."
The intersection was crowded, of course;
Man, woman, child, it didn't matter
I was buried under people yelling and babies' cries
Rioting people, a sobbing girl,
A priest praying, I passed them all by
One single person headed the other way,
Toward what was beyond that hill...
The voice from the headphones persisted:
"Twelve minutes left," it told me
If everything was going to up and vanish,
Then I had no other way...
The chorus of shrieks and screams
Turned to tearful eyes in ten seconds
I had my doubts, but no matter who did what,
There was no ending humanity's song
"Run, run, there's one minute left,"
But I couldn't even hear it by then;
The hill which I sought to cross
Was right before me...
My breath faint, I finally arrived
Before a wall which projected the sky
Behind it, scientists in white applauded;
"Magnificent," they said -
From there, I saw the town
Was some kind of experimental facility;
"No longer necessary,"
A scientist said, and calmly tossed a bomb
I was told I had been living
My whole life in a little world in a box
So I could only stare, dumbfounded
At the burnt wreckage that had been the town
And from the headphones at my ear,
I heard a faint "sorry"...
IF YOU CAN PROVIDE ANY LYRICS I DON'T HAVE PLEASE SAY SO
If you actually stumble across this blog, just ignore it. I'm using it as a more convenient way to store hard copies of my song lyrics instead of a giant text document.
So carry on.
NECESSARY(?) DISCLAIMER: Most of these lyrics are from vgperson anyway. Or from determined Google searches.
And yes this is the exact color of Karkat's text. One day I will find lyrics to the Nic Cage song. One day.
