Oh baby. When I see myself
passin' you by in a daze,
I'd like to get to the bottom of the story
but in the end I'm much too afraid.
I'm just playing out the string.
Waiting to be put down.
I can unlock the mystery
before I get run out of town.

Don't want to wait for the end of the world,
'cause it's easy when you know where you stand.
I've seen it comin' from a mile away.
My head isn't buried in sand.
Don't want to wait for the end of the world
to know that it's truly The End.

Now I'm stuck in the middle.
I wonder about the choice that I made.
I lost you a long, long time ago
but I hang around for the parade.
Wonder why that I'm singing the blues.
I watch it play out in front of me.
We can all have a future...
at least that's what I've gotta believe.

Don't want to wait for the end of the world.
I"d like to think that I'm a reasonable man.
I've seen it comin' from a mile away,
but I wish you'd told me about the plan.
Don't want to wait for the end of the world
to know that it's truly The End.

Oh baby. You light my fire,
but I cannot let you know.
If I gave you the upper hand,
you'd leave me by the side of the road.
I'm walking in the middle of the night,
howling out at the moon.
I know the change will come.
I'm hoping that it's coming real soon.

Don't want to wait for the end of the world,
'cause it's easy when you know where you stand.
I've seen it comin' from a mile away.
My head isn't buried in sand.
Don't want to wait for the end of the world,
to know that it's truly The End.
