The sun is broken
It gives no light at all
The sea has slowed from a flood to a crawl
The sky is empty
There's not a star in sight
Test pattern loneliness, I'm done for the night

People and places
Erased from the past
You can make an impression, but nothing lasts

Is this the big one?
I thought there would be more
Full-scale invasion or a worldwide war
What's left to do now
But sit and twiddle our thumbs
And wait for space and time to come undone

No second coming
No blood-red sea
No explosions on TV

No one to miss us
No one to drive our hearse
Cancelled subscription to the universe
The phone is busy
But no one's on the line
I hear some breathing, but I think it's mine

At the chocolaty center
There's a spiraling hole
But here on the surface things are dull

This is the boring end of time
Not worth a picture
No show business countdown
No Dick Clark
And no champagne

This is the boring end of time
Last page of the story
Eight minutes ago we didn't know
But now we do

And if I had known the end of time
Would be so boring
I would've brought a magazine
