Take tickets, take seats,
Grab a view for you or two,
Things are happening
And the earth is deciding
To try and shake us off for good,
You don’t want to miss this.
Our sins are finally reaching
The threshold for poetic justice,
The circle, once broken,
Will now be finished off,
This is the one and only appearance
Of this apocalypse.
