Go out dancing at the end of the world...
The last days of the world came with a whimper, not a bang
No white knight got the girl, and no fat lady sang
And someone in a back room somewhere
Made one small mistake
Was it ebola or cholera, what difference does it make?
We'll go out dancing at the end of the world
He could have been a hero
Could have worn a hero's hat
But he left a small valve open
Went on home to feed his cats
Now there's no more east side, no more west side
No more miss o'rourke
No one trips the light fantastic
On the sidewalks of new york
We'll go out dancin at the end of the world....
And it could have been deniable
It didn't have to be
Just this one time mr. reliable
Was not where he was supposed to be
And one small footnote adding insult to the pain
He was looking for a lifeboat
Got run over by a train
We'll go out dancing at the end of the world...
