  • I was at the supermarket
    Watching people cut in line
    I started thinking about human nature
    What would you do
    If there was no more food?

    My mind began to wander
    About greed and hunger
    And just how many other countries
    Are getting ready for another war

    But the sun was shining
    And everything seemed fine
    So count me in
    I'll see you on the other side

    Chemical bomb
    Chemical bomb
    Eyes melt, Skin explodes
    Everybody's dead
    It won't be long
    It won't be long
    People gonna run around
    Losing their heads
    A river of blood
    Who's gonna live?
    The earth is tired of human kind
    And I think this world
    Is gonna wash up in Hell

    La la la la la
    La la la la la
    La lala la la la la

    Then I had another vision
    In the crowded grocery store
    I saw the Pale Rider on his horse
    Decapitating people in the parking lot
    And all the shoppers were beasts
    What could I do to hide?
    Back in this world of humankind
    I think we've already lost our minds

    But the sun was shining
    And everything seemed fine
    So count me in
    I'll see you on the other side

    Chemical bomb
    Chemical bomb
    Eyes melt, Skin explodes
    Everybody's dead
    It won't be long
    It won't be long
    People gonna run around
    Losing their heads
    A river of blood
    Who's gonna live?
    The earth is tired of human kind
    And I think this world
    Is gonna wash up in Hell

    La la la la la
    La la la la la
    La lala la la la la
