Apocalypse

Apocalypse

That night while you were sleeping I heard people whispering
Outside our door
That night while you were sleeping I heard a great rumbling
Coming up through the floor
And through the window sheets of rain fell down upon us
Like heaven wept
And in the distance church bells rang a somber chorus
On you slept

That day while we were walking all the streets were screaming
Silently
And rubble fell down from the sky to form tall towers
Twixt you and me
So thick the dust could barely see you there beside me
The air dark and strange
That day while we were walking the abandoned city
You saw not one change


And you would sleep right through it, the change.
