When The World Ends
When The World Ends,
Collect your things and come meet me,
And we’ll watch the stars disappear.
Too bad for them that no-one else is here, but our love has kept us alive.
Turn around and see the city dive.
Pulled below the ocean floor.
Then swallowed whole as the waves wash away,
All that we used to live for.
Come to me and I’ll hold you tight.
We will survive this starless night.
I will keep you safe and warm.
We’ll rise up as the buildings fall.
As we pass the furious angels,
Destruction and Devastation in their way,
While far below the ...
The dark grey sky covers the roof tops like an overcast blanket
No more starlit night, no more light
Rain falls and turns dirt tracks to mud
Life-forces sink slowly into the dense black earth
Any memory of freshly cut peat is lost in a city of disgust
Where the smell of daily living garrottes Sky’s air
The blue and black stones of the winding way match the lofty grey buildings
Children sit head bowed, back hunched in an abyss of misfortune
