  • "1999" (Live)


   When I wrote this I was dreaming
   So excuse me if it goes astray
   When I woke up this morning
   Could have sworn it was judgment day
   The sky was all purple
   There were people running everywhere
   I tried to run from the destruction
   You know I didn't even care
   Everybody's got a bomb, we could all die here today
   But if I'm gonna die I'm gonna fuck my life away
   They say two thousand zero, zero, party over, oops, out of time
   The world spreads its legs like it's 1999
