The End of Times



When all the arguments have been won
and the policies out number the suns
when all the energy has gone
then it will rise and this will end



When the birds and bees have been confined
to the wastelands the slopes and the heights
waiting patiently to re-colonise
then it will rise and this will end




When everybody's had their time of fame
and my friends are on the TV again
when celebrities outnumber all men 
then it will rise and this will end




When the billionaires have been cut to size
Except for a few of them that continue to rise
In a tower that grows higher in the sky



With all the world's wealth locked up inside
and an empty wasteland left outside


with the sick and the lost climbing the walls outside

and the sparks of love waiting to ignite

then it will rise and it will begin............................
