1.The doomsday clock Is ticking
100 seconds to midnight
Apocalypse so soon?
Last moments with our loved ones

2.This is the age of unreason
We don't pick up, we put down
Many broken hours, often words misspoken
We’re over our Heads, out of our Minds

3. We’re Seriously Furious
We slept through the alarm
The golden rule is tarnished
Let’s wash the hands of time

4. The watch band is done playing
People done explaining
As the cloud begins to mushroom
The doomsday clock will stop ticking

A time bomb about to drop
Have you checked the doomsday clock?
It’s darkest before it’s pitch black
Have you checked the doomsday clock, lately?

5. Who’s been drinking at the genius bar?
When has winter been so warm?
The wrong Amazon is burning
The wrong ice is melting
Have you checked the doomsday clock, lately?
Have you checked the doomsday clock, baby?
Tick, tick, tick

6.Wasting time can be fun
Counting sheep to a nightmare
Fifteen seconds of fame you had
Maybe a future that never will be

Have you checked the doomsday clock, lately?
Have you checked the doomsday clock baby?
Ticking, ticking, a hundred seconds to midnight

7. The time machine is now broken
The butterfly effect has spoken
Will our stories all be lost?
How much did that doggie in the window cost?

It’s RIP for the VIP
Are you medicated or dedicated
Tick, tick, tick…
Have you checked the doomsday clock lately?
Tick, tick, tick, ticking time bomb
Have you checked the doomsday clock, lately?
Have you checked the doomsday clock baby?
