lyrics

Ghost town
Not a soul in sight
Empty
Streets and darkened lights
Hello from Doom
Welcome, Apocalypse

Contact
Only in a dream
Faces
On a tiny screen
We’ll see you soon
Welcome, Apocalypse

CHORUS
Welcome, Apocalypse
What’s taken you so long?
Bring us the fitting end
That we’ve been counting on
Welcome, Apocalypse
We’ve been expecting you
We brought this on ourselves
Now kindly follow through

Buildings
Boarded up in line
Vestige
Of a normal time
Those days are gone
Welcome, Apocalypse

Food lines
Stretch around the block
Shelves bare
Empathy out of stock
Try to hang on
Welcome, Apocalypse

CHORUS
Welcome, Apocalypse
What’s taken you so long?
Bring us the fitting end
That we’ve been counting on
Welcome, Apocalypse
We’ve been expecting you
We brought this on ourselves
Now kindly follow through

Unrest
Ignorance distilled
Nihilistic
imbeciles
Its what we’ve earned
Welcome, Apocalypse

Return
Workers to your hive
Even
If it takes your lives
Nothing was learned
Welcome, Apocalypse

CHORUS
Welcome, Apocalypse
What’s taken you so long?
Bring us the fitting end
That we’ve been counting on
Welcome, Apocalypse
We’ve been expecting you
We brought this on ourselves
Now kindly follow through
