about

Earlier this week I was joking about the prospect of Pandemic Dating Apps (Pande-mate!) and it occurred to me that indeed, even in the midst of crisis - and maybe Especially in the midst of crisis - our need to feel loved and connected to others persists. This song speaks to that need, and also to confronting our own inner Doomsday Clocks to find some optimism and a path forward.

OH! And it features a lot of Omnichord, cuz it’s the happiest instrument on the planet, and we all need a bit of that. <3 cb (Mar 20, 2020)

lyrics

The end of the world is coming again
Dear ones, it’s nearly here
Fate has sealed our coffers bare
There’s nothing left to fear

Each dystopian movie scene
I thought was fictionalized
Became reality, foreseen
Covid, we’re paralyzed

Baby meet me at the water’s edge
Baby take a chance, take my germ-y hand
Looking for a lover…
It’s The End Of The World Again

Empty are the streets now
The schools and the stores and bars
Empty too my bedroom
Underneath the stars

But I won’t bend to prophesy
I’ll write my end to end
And fear only fear itself
Though, I admit I pretend…

Baby meet me at the water’s edge
Baby take a chance, take my germ-y hand
Looking for a lover…
It’s The End Of The World Again
