about

A reaction to the steaming pile of human hatred and religious bigotry known as California's Prop 8. Chord progression stolen from the Hazo piece "Exultate" when the Rancho Bernardo Royal Regiment was performing it as part of our marching band field show. Other elements stolen from T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland" and Blink-182's "Untitled."

lyrics

How can you live with a government deciding what love is, and to whom the feeling's deserved? If this state's a microcosm, then the whole world's lost it. There's no point to anything. Well, what can I do to prevent our demise when they follow a hateful god with blinders in their eyes? This is how the world will end. This is how the world will end: In a whimper. Not a bang. I've heard these men preach their logic. To them, there's (sic.) two choices: Be like them, or be nihilist. Well, I'm here to say, "bring back love again." Everyone's invited. And we'll teach them not to hate. Well, what can we do to prevent our demise? Well, I can't help but be the one who stands up to fight. This is how the world will end. This is how the world will end: In a whimper. Not a bang. Well, what do I get 'cause I just seem to lose. You make me regret those times I spent with you. This is how the world will end. This is how the world will end: In a whimper. Not a bang!
