lyrics

They say that Y2K
Will bring destruction upon us
As though we were made from clay.
But I think that I know better
I know that little black holes will tear us apart,
Like scissors being taken to a sweater.

So how many times must we be shown
That everything will be okay?
And I think that all those naysayers
Will just rue the day
When the sun comes up and starts
Another day.

Oh Robert Frost predicted that the world would end
In Fire and Ice.
Harold Camping cried for rapture,
We're still here,
Maybe next time he'll think twice.

Halley's comet didn't kill us,
The Jupiter Effect didn't kill us,
Our existence hasn't been concluded,
All those doomsayers are just stupid.

So how many times must we be shown
That everything will be okay?
And I think that all those naysayers
Will just rue the day
When the sun comes up and starts
Another day.

The only threat to ourselves,
It seems,
Is just ourselves.
