​Not The End Of The World (Even As We Know It)

This song is by Faded Paper Figures and appears on the album Relics (2014).

Glass ceilings falling on you
Like the blessings of a choice when it's the only way,
Last night I thought I saw you
With a drink, and friends, you said you go there everyday,
Then I hear you say ...
Wicked television screen, Rockefeller energy,
Politician guarantee, stupid corporate synergy,
MSNBC jerks, messing with the young Turks,
Yogi hippiography, sell us immortality,
PhD without a gig, dirty, broken drill rig,
Bible basher black belt, bankers buck a short sell,
Kurzweil on a pill-kick, handing down a pink slip,
Missionaries at the door, bleeding out at every pore,
Democratic fail safe,
Money gets you in the game,
Money gets you in the game,
Money gets you in the game ...
Yeah, it's hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
Yeah, it's so hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
Good gods abandoning you
Like a pain that fades when it's no longer in your way,
No collective dreams to guide you,
Have another drink, I think you'll be here everyday.
Then I hear you say ...
Kiss and tell apocalypse, psycho-pharmacologists,
Target demographic lies, revolution improvised,
Artificial bleeding heart, superficial work of art,
Conjure up the word of God, complicated voter fraud,
Buddha-heads will save the day, calculate the DNA,
Mindless droning, human rights, shoppers camping overnight,
The world's a business power-play,
Money gets you in the game,
Money gets you in the game,
Money gets you in the game ...
Yeah, it's hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
Yeah, it's so hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
Unfortunately, life goes on,
However bent and badly drawn.
Yeah, it's hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
Yeah, it's so hard but it's not the end of the world (even as we know it)
