Lyrics

Well I saw on television, maybe I misunderstood
The blonde was sure good-lookin', but the news ain't lookin' good
It's the end as we have known it, and we've known it all too well
The sign read "Good Intentions", but the road led straight to hell
Apocalypse is comin', and it's comin' way too soon
Ain't no use in runnin'; might as well shoot the moon
Grab your suitcase and your fiddle; ain't no chance that we'll return
Since we're stuck here in the middle, we're gonna play while this sucker burns
Cruisin' down that highway goin' nowhere at full tilt
We'd fatten up our bankrolls and let greed steamroll our guilt
Now the engine starts to sputter; it looks like we're outta gas
The car can't get away when karma bites you in the ass
Apocalypse is comin', and it's comin' way too soon
Ain't no use in runnin'; might as well shoot the moon
Grab your suitcase and your fiddle; ain't no chance that we'll return
Since we're stuck here in the middle, we're gonna play while this sucker burns
Flames light up the skies; this deal was just too good to last
Front-row seats to Armageddon, and the tickets sellin' fast
So pass me down that bottle if this really is the end
You'll find me in the ruins, roastin' marshmallows with my friends
Apocalypse is comin', and it's comin' way too soon
Ain't no use in runnin'; might as well shoot the moon
Grab your suitcase and your fiddle; ain't no chance that we'll return
Since we're stuck here in the middle, we're gonna play while this sucker burns
Apocalypse is comin', and it's comin' for us now
Ain't no use in runnin'; might as well take a bow
It's the end as we have known it; ain't no chance that we'll return
This time we've really blown it, so we're gonna play while this sucker burns
Gonna play while this sucker burns
Yeah, we'll play while this sucker burns
