There’s talk of the world ending again
this time it’s the big one (or so they say)
as preachers spout apocalyptic verse
the masses scan the heavens for a sign
but none is seen and life grinds on the same
epiphanies (it seems) are hard to find.

When looking back through history you’ll find
a duplicate scene again and again
the future and the past are both the same
concerned with what the stars might have to say
but soothsayers are reluctant to sign
the prophecies they’ve hidden in their verse
