Rags Parkland - Apocalypse in Tennessee Lyrics

2018 Off-Broadway
Rags Parkland Sings the Songs of The Future the Musical - Apocalypse in Tennessee Lyrics

I wish that I could call
My daddy up on the phone
But prob’ly he’s dead, and if not then he’s crazy
Least he was back when I was at home
He was probably glad that I left
He did better alone

I traveled the stars
I’m not sorry that I ran away
I thought I was escaping the end of the world
I believed what my daddy would say
Fourteen years hearing that
Each day would be the last day

Have you heard the prophecy
Apocalypse in Tennessee
Every day the end of days is nigh

Comets made of iron and blood
The coming of a second flood
A million different ways we’re gonna die
Guess that was easier than giving life a try

So I left the Earth,
but my Daddy was still in my head
In each empty space tween the stars in the sky
I’d envision the things that he’d said
The end of the world and the people
I left there all dead

Have you heard the prophecy
Apocalypse in Tennessee
Every day the end of days is nigh

Just throw away your Earthly stuff
We’ll enter heaven in the buff
You’ll wear a star tiara in the sky
Don’t that sound easier than giving life a try

You only die once
I hope I do it right
That I rage against the dying of the light
That the friends who went before me
Are proud of how I fight

I was born to be meek
But I learned about might (x3)

Most folks don’t get twice to get it right

Some folks live a few lives
And some people barely live one
Your brain is a map of the memories you make
Who reads the map when you’re done?
Where will it lead?
At the end will they wish that it went on?

You only die once
I hope I do it right
That I rage against the dying of the light
That the friends who went before me
Are proud of how I fight

I was born to be meek
But I learned about might (x3)

Most folks don’t get twice to get it right

I don’t think I’ll ever talk to my daddy again
But I’d like to know if he ever stopped thinking
Today’s when the world’s gonna end

If we’ll be here tomorrow
There’s a few things that we ought to mend (x2)

If we’ll be here tomorrow
Yesterday’s worth rememberin’
