Lyrics

When the World Falls Down

K. Obermeyer

When the world falls down where you gonna run?
With your arms wide open, your hands on the gun
Desperate times and lunatic’s dreams
Tear the optimist apart at the seams

On a leave of absence, God had to run
All he could say was “Look what you fools have done!”
Every decision was yours to make
Only an idiot would believe in fate

Yeah we’re running but we’ve got nowhere to go
We spent all our money and we’ve cashed all the checks we wrote

When the world falls down who you gonna save?
Will you stand up for innocence or dig a shallow grave?
We can’t pretend to know what lies ahead
But odds are a funny thing and we’re losing the bet

Yeah we’re running but we’ve got nowhere to go
We spent all our money and we’ve cashed all the checks we wrote
