lyrics

I got that acrylonitrile running through my gills
Yeah they're green for a reason, got some sickness to spill
With those plastic band from aluminum cans
Wrapped tight round my wrist now there's blood on my hands
You tell me that this shit ain't polluted
What you think I'm fucking stupid

The four horsemen are still just men
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
Not with a bang, but with a whimper
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
Could this shit get any simpler

Getting held down by my fellow man
I can't get off the ground Hell I can hardly stand
But when I claw and bite my way back to the top
I get scared of the heights 'cause now my grounding's lost
People got teeth like beasts
they just use their lips to hide them underneath

The four horsemen are still just men
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
Not with a bang, but with a whimper
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
Pneumonia sets in with a shiver

With a pain in my side and a cough in my hand
I'm giving out high fives for those swollen glands
Spread like wildfire bright like Christmas
Emergency room lights black out clenched fist
You tell me not to spread disease
What'd you expect me to do, not breathe

The four horsemen try seven billion
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
Not with a bang, but with a whimper
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends
This is how the world ends

And you might think that death constantly lurks over your shoulder
But I got a feeling in the big picture that he is just another bloody soldier
And you might take a breath and wonder how long can I hold it
Well I can say you're not alone 'cause I can feel our bodies floating

The four horsemen are still just men
This is how the world ends
