It's the twilight of civilization
And everything's coming unglued
And everyone's strung out
And coppin' a bad attitude
It's the end of the road as we know it
And all our good work is undone
And everything crumbles
And everyone grumbles
And nobody has any fun
Hey now hey now hey now hey now now now now
Aren't we being a little bit hasty?
Now now now now now . . .
Now history's brutally honest
And the message is painfully clear
The great and the humble
They all take a tumble
And we're no exception, my dear
But our time will come soon enough
Hey . . .
Now now now now
Aren't we being a little bit testy?
Now now now now now . . . .
