Lyrics

Here’s the story of how we became friends
We met on the day that the world would end
Attacks first started in West Berlin
Uh oh, uh, oh tonight

The simultaneous strikes
Four thousand cities at the same time
Seven billion people died side by side
Uh, uh, uh, oh, tonight

Sirens in the sky (no one can save us)
The two last souls collide

Invasion night; the laser lights are shining bright
And in the fight darkness descends
But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive
Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?)

We waited for the blitzkrieg to stop
Hot-wired a Mercury Sport drop-top
Genocide is the saddest place to hook up
Uh, uh, uh, oh, tonight

There’s no one left to be saved
Just empty cars on P.C.H.
We drove all night to San Simeon Bay
In William’s House, we’ll hide

Sirens in the sky (no one can save us)
The two last souls collide

Invasion night; the laser lights are shining bright
And in the fight darkness descends
But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive
Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?)

In the Neptune Pool, tonight (no one will find us)
The two last souls collide

Invasion night; the laser lights are shinning bright
And in the fight darkness descends
But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive
Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?)

Hold on to the end
Hold on…
