lyrics

maybe the world will fall apart
maybe the crows will come and peck away your heart
maybe the wolves will eat the moon and the sun
and we won’t have to face the consequences of the things we’ve done

axe time, sword time, ere the world fall
wind time, wolf time, come the end of it all
nearly doomsday, just look at the clock
ticking down the minutes until ragnarok ragnarok

Chorus:
Ragnarok ragnarok ragnarok
ragnarok ragnarok rock

now that the sky is raining soot
no need to return all of those late library books
the ones you read with bated breath
about the end where even gods can meet their death

world tree tremble shake at the root
fall before the moment when our bills come due
cross your fingers for fire and flood
the Valkyries are rushing through the battlefields of blood

the time we've spent is not our own
nothing to have, nothing to hold
and now there’s no more growing older
hang on tight it’s almost over

Midgard’s serpent is coming for you
those new year’s resolutions won’t be coming true
go out and buy some cigarettes cause what the fuck
you might as well enjoy yourself till ragnarok ragnarok

(chorus)

maybe we’re here to wonder why
or watch the stars wink out like candles in the sky
and as the seas begin to rise
let’s share this final cigarette
and kiss the world goodnight
