Happy Judgement Day

Album: The Peace And The Panic (2017)
  • Oh what a time to be alive
    Wake up and smell the dynamite
    And keep your eyes locked tight to that screen
    And don't believe everything that you see
    You will find modern life's a catastrophe

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this could be farewell?
    Oh, we almost had it then we pissed it all away
    Building walls, dropping bombs
    Stop the world, I’m getting off
    Oh, we almost had it
    Never thought I’d see the day
    When the world went up in flames
    When the world went up in flames

    We all worship celebrities, desperate for an identity
    But cigarettes and MDMA don’t give you substance
    You don’t think about what you say
    Cause your mouth is bigger than your brain
    It's a shame, so fake and you’re all the same

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this could be farewell?
    Oh, we almost had it then we pissed it all away
    Building walls, dropping bombs
    Stop the world, I’m getting off
    Oh, we almost had it
    Never thought I’d see the day
    When the world went up in flames

    There's a Black cat in the windows of Parliament
    There’s a man in the back of a black cab, talking about the good days
    When it all went up in flames
    (Happy Judgement Day)
    It all went up in flames
    (Happy Judgement Day)

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this could be farewell?
    Oh, we almost had it then we pissed it all away
    Building walls, dropping bombs
    Stop the world, I’m getting off
    It’s been a long time coming
    Never thought I’d see the day
    It’s been a long time coming
    Never thought I’d see the day
    When the world went up in flames
    If the world went up in flames
