How it All Ends ©2020 Stephen A Schuster

 

Suddenly the sirens stir the night
Unexpected missiles shot on sight
Crisis on the borderline
They’re coming for what’s yours and mine
If you’re looking for a sign
Of humanity’s decline


This is how it all ends
how it all just falls apart
Hear me now my friends
You can take my words to heart and back again
This is how it all comes to an end


Hey you got to give those babies back
So-called family values coming under attack
The saddest truth is no excuse
No one’s about to call a truce
Not trying to be obtuse
Everything is breaking loose


This is how it all ends
how it all just falls apart
Hear me now my friends
You can take my words to heart and back again
This is how it all comes to an end


Ringing in my ears
The crashes hollow sound
That feeling disappears
When ashes all fall down


Warmest one on record every year
Icebergs melting down, reduced to tears
With millions deep in poverty
I’ll get my beachfront property
The sea rised up in me
Never set those pigeons free


This is how it all ends
how it all just falls apart
Hear me now my friends
You can take my words to heart and back again
This is how it all comes to an end
