I don’t pay attention

To the world ending

It has already ended

Many times for me

And the real tragedy

Is what happens

When it begins again

In the light of day

Trust me

You don’t want to see it

You just want to live it

And forget it

Don’t worry about

The end of the world

Worry about

What happens next
