lyrics

My sign says the end is nigh
Because when you forsake your heroes they forsake you (they forsake you)
My fists have got the answers to questions you have
Concerning mercy maybe lurking behind my ink blot mask (my ink blot mask)
Satisfaction comes from knowing that criminals died maybe then I will sleep tonight (I will sleep tonight)

Don’t jackknife the possibility
(the possibility)
That Rorschach was right
Don’t blame me
If we are unable to set things right
For you and me
And all of the world
The world is going to end one way or another
(your way or mine)
The clock is still ticking
We’re running out of time
Midnight is getting closer
Doomsday is ticking closer


Two riders were approaching, only one would return
And never to a place called home again
A pirate ship on the horizon got to weather the storm
A storm of our own makin’
He once was a crusader went off to fight a war
Watching over a world gone wrong
Relives his old days of glory wondering where they’ve gone
And then there’s a knock at the door

Don’t jackknife the possibility
(the possibility)
That Rorschach was right
Don’t blame me
If we are unable to set things right
For you and me
And all of the world
The world is going to end one way or another
(your way or mine)
The clock is still ticking
We’re running out of time
Midnight is getting closer
Doomsday is ticking closer
