It’s the end of the world as we know it
And I’m feeling nothing is fine
Since slipping down stairs on the slime of your tears
As we stumble toward one more crime
With our pulses and tempers increasing
‘Til the drumbeats are all we can hear
With the pounding of chests just a signal at best
For there’s plenty out there now to fear
Do we dare raise an eyebrow to challenge?
Would majority views still prevail?
Those whose protesting shocks in the ballot boom box
Were a message: Society? Fail!
Is there hope for our woeful tomorrows?
Can we ever recover the cost?
Now we’re set on a course to an ending of force
May we mourn what it is that we’ve lost?

Follow the flag to sunnier climes
Where all things are free, including our minds.
The truth and the beauty of mankind we see
In person, not filtered by watching TV.
Sharing our burdens, we lose all our care,
Eat when we’re hungry, sleep without fear,
Spend our time laughing in gay company,
Just Abraham, Ahmed, Abdullah and me.
