the absolute end of the world

it happened gradually, until it happened suddenly
the warnings were invisible & plainly there for all to see
borrowed from tomorrow just to feed our false economy
shitting in our own backyard the best part of a century

lost inside a human world, a virtual reality
placed our faith in systems so top-heavy with complexity
never seem to find the nerve to question their stability
a single point of failure & a double shot of entropy

trapped in our denials, all the insults we have hurled
& we're hanging on to what we have with fingers tightly curled
let me bid you welcome to the absolute end of the world
