When the End Arrives

lyrics

Move very slowly
Toward the exit sign
Stay very calm
No need to panic
Follow the blue lights
Help will arrive
Stay very orderly
And we will survive

A world out of order
Violence abounds
No way back down
We are too far gone
Relief has become a myth
Stay our of this
No need to call your god

We have ourselves to blame
For all that’s become of us
No one we can name
Who started the fall
Who started the fall?

No one said it would be easy
Take off that blindfold that you hide behind
Nowhere to run to when the end arrives
We will be left to justify our own lives

Do you remember
Not seeing colors
Or disorders
Before we learned to discriminate?
Do you remember
Living in the now
Not wondering how
The future would affect you?

Dear god
I don’t want to be here
When the spark ignites the fire
I want a place to take cover
But there will be nowhere to hide
Dear god
Have you forgotten us?
We try everything but love to find
Our way out of this disaster
That we call our lives
