lyrics

Everyone was freakin’ over Y2K
Everything we counted on would go away
Everything was hinging on a program glitch
May day hey day
Hit panic switch

Everybody scared it would all break down
Stockin’ up and lockin’ up a cache
Runnin’ out o’ town
Time to rock ‘n’ roll seemed to fly right by
Out of our hands
And out of the sky it came

(Y2K)
On that fateful day
(Y2K)
All our fears gave way
Fireworks display
San Francisco Bay
(Y2K)
Heads up
Anything is possible
Y2K

Everybody kissin’ everyone they meet
Lendin’ all and spendin’ all they cash
Runnin’ in the street
Fallin’ like a mist in our newborn eyes
Boy, we were in
For a surprise again

(Y2K)
Came a fateful day
(Y2K)
After some delay
Planes like birds of prey
Buildings fell away
(Y2K)
Heads up
Anything is possible
Y2K

It’s past the time when time was running out
To be the last in line to go hiding underground
To hatch your nice tries, they’re numbered now.
Can’t deny the sea rise and the tundra melt
Nasty surprise! You thought everything was wonderful
Once you’re invincible, realize you’re vulnerable
But after you’re wise to where the truth lies,
You’re twice as gullible
You can’t divide the greatest common multiple
Blasted by solar flares and culpable cyber criminals
And machinations of the high and powerful
A cast of nasty faster masterminds – expendable – expellable
Dispatch millenarian millennials to go to hell
To catch the end times and find their holy grail
Catastrophe or slow decay, leaving out
No detail worthy of freakin’ out over it
Everything’s trollable and uncontrollable
Get freakin’ over it
Time is unstoppable
Anything’s possible
Everyday is Y2K

(Y2K)
On that fateful day
(Y2K)
The world was led astray
Tripped by feet of clay
Headed the wrong way
(Y2K)
Heads up
Anything is possible
Y2K

Everybody’s gone apocalypse
Pickin’ from the same old shoppin’ list
Running up the new necropolis
Now

Closin’ time and feelin’ mighty fine
Go to town and toe the partyline
Like it’s always nineteen ninety-nine
Now

All the old MCs still killin’ ‘em
Fill our voices up like helium
Till we feel a real millennium
Now

(We’re still waiting
For our future)
