ES EL FIN DEL MUNDO QUE CONOCEMOS (Y ME SIENTO BIEN)

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT (AND I FEEL FINE) R.E.M.

That's great it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes and aeroplanes
Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs dummy serve your own needs
Speed it up a notch speed grunt nose street burn
The ladder starts to clatter with dinner fight down height
Wire in a fire room represent the southern gangs
In a government for hire and a combat site
Lefty wasn't coming in a hurry
With the furies breathing down your neck
Team by team reporters grapple trunk tethered crop
Look at that low plane fine then
Uh oh overflow population cornered
But it'll do save yourself serve yourself
World serves its own needs listen to your heartbeat
Tell me that the reds are in the reverend in the right right?
You patriotic patriotic slam fight right might feeling pretty psyched

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Six o'clock TV hour don't get caught foreign tower
Slash and burn return listen to yourself churn lock him in uniform
And book-burning blood-letting every motive escalate
Automotive incinerate light a candle light a motive
Step down step down watching heel crush crush
Uh oh this means no fear cavalier renegade steer clear
A tournament a tournament a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions offer me alternatives and I decline

It's the end of the world as we know it(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

The other night I drifted nice continental drift to find
Mount Saint Edelite Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Birthday party cheesecake jellybeans boom
You symbiotic patriotic slam foot neck right right

Lyrics that reflect the chaos and madness of today's world right? And so, with all this crap in mind, I urge you faithful reader to prepare. I am going to get as many preparedness kits as I can afford and be as ready as possible for the next big disaster. I've never seriously taken the time to consider this, but I'm conscientious enough now to understand that the government will not bail us out during a terrorist attack or natural disaster of epic proportions.

We need to get our shit together and empower ourselves. Living in Southern California affords us double the risk: that of terrorism and an earthquake.

This is not pessimism. It's the reality of our times.

So don't say I didn't warn ya.
