The Lyrics

I think this explains the appeal of post-apocalyptic stories about as well as anything does.
Eiffel Tower's been hurled
Everywhere in small pieces;
Bits are landing in places
Such as Chile and Japan.

Moscow got a surprise;
Likewise Berlin and London;
Luxembourg has come undone;
Missiles rain down on Tehran.

A blown-up world!
Someone just blasted Timbuktu
L.A. is next to go, then Monaco;
And who knows, maybe Beijing?

A blown-up world!
Mushrooms are sprouting, what a view!
A firestorm of fear, but we're out here,
And now I'm in a blown-up world with you. (Now I'm in a blown-up world with you.)

As the diplomats cry,
All the nations are reeling;
While your love you're revealing,
'Neath a red and orange sky!

A blown-up world! (Such a fire in your eyes!)
The sunset of humanity! (This just keeps getting better!)
What a romantic sight, this fiery night!
'Cause you're here in this blown-up world with me.

A blown-up world!
That scarred horizon means that you
And I don't have to wait, I'll be your mate,
repopulate this blown-up world with you.

A blown-up world! (A blown-up world!)
The blasted embers, what a view! (The blasted embers, what a view!)
Such a nice afterglow, a warming flow;
And France just got a reaming

A blown-up world! (Such delight in your eyes!)
The charred horizon, here with you; (My heart feels so unfettered!)
Now we can make the scene, though we're fifteen;
It's not obscene! (Though we're just fifteen!)
Now that I've seen this blown-up world with you.

A blown-up world... (A blown-up world...)
So heavenly... (It's so heavenly...)
Now we'll replace the human race,
Just you and me.
For some reason, I keep imagining Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley from the Monkey Island games doing this song...

Good pacing and good punchline. Here's to repopulating the world.

Don't you know? That's the sound of a bunch of cats being vivisected. Either that, or it's Nine Inch Nails on tour. I can't tell from in here.

Another one of your uplifting, "humorus" parodies, eh, Offender?

A well-written parody.

I hated it, but at least I had the courtesy to vote 5 for pacing.
Offender - December 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, death's head humor isn't for everyone, but I guess whether it's uplifting or not depends on whether you imagine yourself among the numerous blown-up people or the amorous teen survivors mentioned in this song.

OH OH. The lyrics to this song are so wrong in so many ways. Like repopulating the human race. That's just plane icky. I'd kill myself before I try to repopulate a world of about 15 million gaziiloin xizllion people. Plus Antarctica.

You would kill yourself first? Boy, what a waste of an opportunity! Oh well. It's your funeral and that would mean more common-law wives for me, so I shouldn't complain.
