Doomed

I sit here on the mountain as the water levels rise

Thinking about the good times, saying my goodbyes

We all saw this coming it was right before our eyes

This is the end of the world as we know it and it's no surprise

Now Amsterdam is sinking and Tokyo's in the sea

New York is just a river Vietnam an estuary

And there's only a lagoon where Venice used to be

We're all doomed

The four horsemen are coming, we're marooned

Time to go and colonise the moon

This is the sound of impending doom

I sit here in my cabin and I watch the evening news

If you don't have an opinion they got plenty you can use

If you look into the sun it's not just vision that you'll lose

And freedom of the press is now freedom to abuse

It's the politicians not the people that are supposed to serve

But politicians lack the backbone and people lack the nerve

Maybe it's true that we all get the government we deserve

We're all doomed

The four horsemen are coming, we're marooned

Time to go and colonise the moon

This is the sound of impending doom

And in the Middle East all hope has disappeared

The Crusades went on for just a little longer than we feared

And now we're just arresting anyone with a beard

We're all doomed

The four horsemen are coming, we're marooned

Time to go and colonise the moon

This is the sound of impending doom
