“Everybody Out of the Water” by the Wallflowers

On your mark
Get set let’s go
You got to move on
Before she explodes
Look out the window
Lookout below
Back away from the glass
There she blows
The city’s been leveled
Hills are in flames
Streets cracked open
And they’re pushin’ up clay
Temperature’s dropped
Sky is grey
And it ain’t even over
Here comes drivin’ rain

It ain’t me
That you feel
There’s something moving
Around in here
That’s blood
That’s tears
This ain’t a warning…

Everybody out of the water
Up on dry land
Take what you can
Cause’ you won’t be here again
Everybody out of the water

Now I’m treadin’ high water
To get back to you
Been looking for a low spot
Or something to cling to
There’s too many bodies

There’s not enough room
God help me
And God help you
They say nobody panic
Help is on it’s way
We’re already on it
You’ve got to be brave
If you can fix it now
Then don’t make us wait
Man there ain’t nobody coming
Back away from the gates

That bell
That you hear
That’s hell
Ringing in your ears
I fear
That my dear
This ain’t a warning…

[chorus]

Now I’m looking up
And the shit keeps coming
Like shooting ducks
In a barrel of honey
Got to learn how to pray
Love won’t be enough
Admit it now
Your information sucks
As I slip
Down in
I think of us someplace
High on a mountain
Smoke clears
Fog lifts
Little by little
We rebuild again
Till’ then…

[chorus]

“Mama Said” by the Shirelles

Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there’ll be days like this

There’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)

I went walking the other day and
Everything was going fine
Met a little boy named Billy Joe
And then I almost lost my mind

Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said

And then she said someone would look at me
Like I’m looking at you someday
Then I might find
I don’t want you any old way but I don’t worry ‘causre

Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said

My eyes are wide open
But all that I can see is
Chapel bells a-tollin’
For everyone but-a me but I don’t worry ’cause

Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there’ll be days like this
There’ll be days like this, my mama said

(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) don’t you worry
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) don’t you worry, now
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) mama said there’ll be days like this
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) there’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) mama said there’ll be days like this
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) there’ll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) don’t you worry

“Better Days (And The Bottom Drops Out)” by Citizen King

In my shoes my toes are busted
My kitchen says my bread is molded
I got a good job at the dollar store

One foot in the hole

One foot gettin’ deeper
With a broken nail and a blown out speaker
I ain’t got much else to lose

I’m faded, flat busted
Been jaded, I’ve been dusted
I know that I’ve seen better days

One foot in the hole
One foot gettin’ deeper
Crank it to eleven, blow another speaker
And I ain’t got, I ain’t got much to lose

‘Cause I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
And the bottom drops out

Now, my cup’s filled up with five buck wine
I find myself here all the time
Another rip in the glass
Another chip in my tooth

Rained on, I’ve been stained on
Found another goat I try to put the blame on
And now I’m steppin’ on all the cracks
So I guess there ain’t no use

‘Cause I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I’m bent like glass
Second hand like glory
Missed the bus but I’m in no hurry
Molasses fast, no business born

One foot in the hole
One foot gettin’ deeper
Crank it to eleven, blow another speaker
And I ain’t got, I ain’t got much to lose

I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I’ve seen better days
I’ve been the star of many plays
I’ve seen better days
I’ve seen better days

I know that I’ve seen better days
(And the bottom drops out)
I’ve been the star of so many plays
(And the bottom drops out)

I walked on the edge without a hold whole way
(And the bottom drops out)
‘Cause I know, I know that I’ve seen better, better days
(And the bottom drops out)

“We’ll Meet Again” by Vera Lynn

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
‘Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say “Hello”
To the folks that I know?
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
‘Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say “Hello”
To the folks that I know?
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singin’ this song

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

“Everybody Want to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears

Welcome to your life there’s no turning back
Even while we sleep we will find
You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own design, it’s my own remorse
Help me to decide, help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I’ll be right behind you
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world
