    3. 3. Im waking up at the start of the end of the world,But its feeling just like every other morning before,Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if its gone,The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour if thatAnd I started staring at the passengers whore waving goodbyeCan you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?[chorus:]But I believe the world is burning to the groundOh well I guess were gonna find outLets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeWell I, believe, it all, is coming to an endOh well, I guess, were gonna pretend,Lets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeI think it turned ten oclock but I dont really knowThen I cant remember caring for an hour or soStarted crying and I couldnt stop myselfI started running but theres no where to run toI sat down on the street and took a look at myselfSaid where you going man you know the world is headed for hellSay your goodbyes if youve got someone you can say goodbye toI believe the world is burning to the groundOh well I guess were gonna find outLets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeWell I, believe, it all, is coming to an endOh well, I guess, were gonna pretend,Lets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeIts gone gone baby its all goneThere is no one on the corner and theres no one at homeIt was cool cool, it was just all coolNow its over for me and its over for youWell its gone gone baby its all goneThere is no one on the corner and theres no one at homeWell it was cool cool, it was just all coolNow its over for me and its over for youBut I believe the world is burning to the groundOh well I guess were gonna find outLets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeWell I, believe, it all, is coming to an endOh well, I guess, were gonna pretend,Lets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve comeLets see how far weve come

    5. 5. MY ANALYSISI think that the song analyzes a lot of current events happing right now in the human race. Also the lyrics of the song analyzes that the development of human modern culture overtime and also a end of the world is possible if the way society is today.The music video shows that all of the positive things that important figures did in the past and past events. For example The Civil Rights Movement, JFK’s election, landing on the moon, and Obama and Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Democratic campaigns.
    6. 6. MY REFLECTIONWhat I think about the song are very mixed. I don’t think the end of the world willhappen, but we need to do is don’t think much about the past, we should try to moveforward and try to help out with each other. I just think if we talk about the past andpast events, then we go nowhere.
