Here Comes The Flood by The Divine Comedy

Dexter does some narration on a song on one of the Divine Comedy's albums:

Fin De Siècle Album Cover
Fin De Siècle Inside Page


Here Comes The Flood
Here comes the flood
Rivers of mud,
Baby.
Here comes the quake
Evacuate
While you still can.
Here comes the fire
Our funeral pyre,
Baby!
Here comes the flood,
Here comes the blood bath.

Here comes the fly
Fifty foot high,
Baby.
Here comes the war
More blood and gore
Than you can stand.
Here comes the race
From outer space,
Baby!
It's all over
We're all gonna
Die.

[Dexter Fletcher] If the good Lord had intended me to live in L.A.,
He'd have given me a machine gun.
Still,
Here I am,
Just another worried little citizen of this modern-day Pompeii
Waiting for the melt-down,
The show-down,
The great American close-down,
When that fault-line that runs right through society's fabric finally snaps
And the whole damn thing starts unravelling.
Why watch the sports channel
When you can watch CNN?
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The greatest race in history,
The race to end all races,
In fact the race to end history.
In lane one - the San Andreas Fault,
In lane two - Global Recession,
In three - El Nino,
In four - Chemical War,
Lane five - Inter-Racial Conflict,
Lane six - Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
On your marks,
Get set,
Wait for it,
Go! [/Dexter]

Here comes the flood
Rivers of blood,
Baby.
Here comes the bomb
It wont be long
'Till we're all gone.
Here comes the sun
Run baby run,
Baby!
If you believe all that you read you'll know the end is nigh
We're gonna
Die!
