Words and Music by Tony Caravan (BMI)

The bankers are all crazy
if they think people will keep paying their
student loan bills and high interest on credit cards

The politicians are all insane
if they think people will keep paying their
taxes for this, and taxes for that
with no representation just social injustice

The landlords are all living in a dream world
if they think they can keep raising the rents
and people will keep paying for boxes with doors

It’s the End of the World
and this time it’s for real
There’s no going back to the way that it was
Everything’s broken and can’t be fixed
Half the people are delusional and
most of the rest are living in a virtual reality
The fantasy has no happy ending
Just wars and violence, destruction and hunger
until it goes back to the way it was
before the greed and hatred and vanity
to starting from scratch after Earth has her way.

Wall Street traders are idiots
if they keep playing the market like a casino
The bottom’s gonna drop out and they’ll
be jumping’ out windows like their granddaddies did

The media are fools
if they think anyone cares about the stories
they weave and the importance they place on trivial pursuits

The warriors got played
by a weapon industry that makes money by selling
to both sides. The more chaos they create,
the more profit they make

It’s the End of the World
and this time it’s for real
There’s no going back to the way that it was
Everything’s broken and can’t be fixed
Half the people are delusional and
most of the rest are living in a virtual reality
The fantasy has no happy ending
Just wars and violence, destruction and hunger
until it goes back to the way it was
before the greed and hatred and vanity
to starting from scratch after Earth has her way.

The corporations are mad
if they think their profits will rise
People aren’t going to pay for their products
that break or out-date too soon

The government will fall
as the people ignore it and laugh at their antics
and realize they don’t need them anymore

It’s all over, it’s just hard to see
with all the diversions

Everything’s broken
and can’t be fixed.
The fantasy’s over,
we’re gonna have to start from scratch;
after the Earth has her way.
