Twilight (a song about the end of days)

Updated on July 15, 2016


Did you ever imagine that it would come to this?

As we teeter at the edge of the abyss

Say good-bye to the grand illusion of unending progress

That made it so easy to ignore the growing mess.


One thing leads to another, forever closing doors along the way;

And sometimes the choices that we make come back to haunt us at the end of the day.


Remember the dream of spaceflight to the stars?

In Back to the Future we drove flying cars...

What a nice distraction that was from the endless War,

And the truth in Orwell’s 1984.


One thing leads to another, forever closing doors along the way;

And sometimes the choices that we make come back to haunt us at the end of the day.


Look out on the horizon: the perfect storm

Is getting itself together and taking form...

And pretty soon we’ll all be toasty warm.

No sweat: sooner or later we all buy the farm.


One thing leads to another, forever closing doors along the way;

And sometimes the choices that we make come back to haunt us at the end of the day.
