Lyrics by Chris Tavener

I’ve had a premonition
A sneaking superstition
That the world is going to end today
And now I’ve had the vision
I’m on a major mission
Letting every single person know
You better tell your friends, you better tell your wife
Dump everything you own, don’t be thinking twice
Go hiding underground because the end is nigh in 1999

So I might have been mistaken
That misinterpretation
Had the figures but they weren't in line
But you can put your faith in
My new recalculation
Cause I’m sure I’ve got it right this time
You better lose yourself, you better turn and run
And guard your food supply with a loaded gun
Then hope you make it through because the end is nigh
In the Winter of 2012

I wouldn’t wait for the rapture
For Jesus knocking on your door
He’s been gone 2,000 years
And he could be 2,000 more
What if the world has just ended
What if we couldn’t tell?
The Earth went out two hours ago
And now we’re all living in Hell

Apocalypse depiction
Humanity’s addiction
Will be ever going on and on
And every new prediction
Could be a work of fiction
Yes but nobody can say who’s wrong
You better tell your friends, you better tell your wife
How much you think of them being in your life
Make every second count because for all you know
Your world could just end right now
