As The World Caves In

Matt Maltese


My feet are aching
And your back is pretty tired
And we've drunk a couple bottles, baby
And set our grief aside

The papers say it's doomsday
The button has been pressed
We're gonna nuke each other up, boys
'Till old Satan stands impressed

And here it is, our final night alive
And as the Earth burns to the ground

Oh, girl, it's you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Oh, it's you I watch TV with
As the world, as the world caves in

You put your finest suit on
I paint my fingernails
Oh, we're going out in style, baby
And everything's on sale

We creep up on extinction
I pull your arms right in
I weep and say: Goodnight, love
While my organs pack it in

And here it is, our final night alive
And as the Earth burns to the ground

Oh, girl, it's you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Oh, it's you I watch TV with
As the world, as the world caves—

Oh, it's you that I lie with
As the atom bomb locks in
Yes, it's you I welcome death with
As the world, as the world caves in

As the world caves in
