Now I Am The Fastest

about

This is what happens when the world ends, and everyone is gone, except one turtle.

lyrics

Mushroom clouds rise, acid rain falls
there aren't any footsteps these days
it's been thirteen hours since the crushing defeat
and the last ones turned dust and fillets

I am all alone, there is no one else living
it's a tragedy, but I'll get past it
I'll try to look on the bright side today
Finally, I am the fastest

I'll try to look on the bright side today
Finally, I am the fastest

After three decades of nuclear fallout
and galaxy-wide laser war
the evacuation was mostly complete
and then came the poisonous spores

Now they're all gone, I've been left here to die
but my plan is to outlast it
Now that there's no one to get in my way
finally, I am the fastest

Now that there's no one to get in my way
Finally, I am the fastest

they used to tease me, giggle and yell
because I was always last place
But the radiation bounced right off my shell
I guess slow and steady ended up winning the race

I'll try to look on the bright side today
Finally, I am the fastest
