  • You are now tuned into the tomb of Jehova
    Play my tunes loud enough to shake the room, what's the hold up?
    Heard the world is ending soon I assumed that they told ya
    They tryna dinosaur us
    So now it's time to go up

    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)

    The roof is on fire
    She wet like Barbra Streisand
    Police everywhere
    It's like a nigga killed a white man
    I just wanna find a baby mama 'fore the night end
    So don't be coming 'round Vince
    On that batter ram shit
    On that 911 shit
    Need a misses brown as Missy
    I can have some fun with
    Them slave bones make Grace Jones
    Don't stop, bitch, stay focused
    They hated on us since days of Moses
    Let my people go crazy
    Them stars falling, don't chase 'em

    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)

    Attack on Iraq
    It's on a line
    Typing it fast
    Then it's slipping my mind
    Oh, when I'm drunk
    I'm spirited back
    I fall in a fire then I save myself
    Then I get advantage
    'Cause the feeling's so raw
    In these times of sedition
    Well, nothing is dull
    And I'm moving into stillness
    And recalling it all
    And I'm a lover, just a lover, just a lover, just a lover, just a

    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)

    All these liberated women sitting in my lap
    I'm finna catch a body like I got a gun and badge
    I'm finna turn Obama to my patna 'fore he dash
    Pull up to his pad, wipe my ass with the flag
    I'm just playing, baby, this the land of the free
    Where you can get a Glock and a gram for the cheap
    Where you can live your dreams long as you don't look like me
    Be a puppet on a string, hanging from a fucking tree (aghh)

    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby
    Drop that ass 'fore it crash (higher)
    The sky's falling, baby, falling baby, falling (higher) Writer/s: ANTHONY KHAN, DAMON ALBARN, VINCE STAPLES
