Can't You See The World Is Ending

lyrics

This guy's strong and distant
That guy's kind and meek
Each reminds me of a version of myself I want to be
The school's abuzz with gossip
It's been going on all week
But that's not the decision that the world awaits from me

Alien forces are approaching
The war has been declared
And I don't know why but I'm the chosen one and I am scared
I'm a little worried that my friends don't seem to care
You'd think they'd cancel classes so we all could get prepared
And it's seems a little weird that you're all talking about guys
When people all around us are fighting for their lives

They need a hero who's going to fight
They need the weapons, they need food and light
I wish that I could deal with that new friend request that's pending
But now isn't the time!
Can't you see the world is ending?

So, finals start on Monday
And the spies have found our place
I know you disagree, but I'd rather save the world than just save face
Lasers hit the bunker
And droids surround the base
Do you really still believe that failing math class is the worst case?

So you and Kate are shopping for new dresses for the prom
But I'll probably take a raincheck while I try to stop the bombs

They need a hero who's going to fight
They need the weapons, they need food and light
I wish that I could talk about the hashtags that are trending
But now isn't the time!
Can't you see the world is ending?

I'm leading the army
Their fate is in my hands
You tell me I'm behind on memes
And don't know all the latest bands
Right now I've got a mission
And it's time that we began
You tell me that I need to see
The future of Hamsterdance

They need a hero who's going to fight
They need the weapons, they need food and light
I'd like to whine about the things that Youtube's recommending
But now isn't the time!
Can't you see the world is ending?
