This song is about the horrors of the impending apocalypse. Written by Jared Putnam.


When the earth has fallen in the sun
When frogs don't croak and hummingbirds don't hum
When no one's there to water burning lawns
And ugly ducklings don't turn into swans

When junebugs cease to cling to backdoor screens
And golfers cease to putt on putting greens
When monkeys nevermore swing from their tails
And whalers nevermore shall harpoon whales

The whalers and the sailors turn to steam
The tailors never stitch another seam
Snowflakes never more again shall fall
But I'll still love you darling most of all

When the earth has been reduced to ash
And no one watches episodes of M*A*S*H
When watermelons nevermore shall grow
And city streets with molten lava flow

When it's time for everything to die
From cockroaches to hippopatami
I won't be afraid and I won't cry
As long as I have you right by my side

I won't be afraid and I won't scream
As long as you are right there next to me
