and he says didn't you get the memo?
the sky's falling tomorrow.
here, we can share this tin foil hat
and I've got enough duct tape to go around.

and she says you know, I'm not sure
I can buy into all this shit you're selling—
the sky isn't falling, it's just joining the party,
striking out on its own at long last.

and I'm afraid this isn't a drill,
not just smoke and sirens
don't the clouds seem a little closer to you?

and he says, I think you've lost more than
just a few marbles, honey, if you think
you're gonna make it through without
me there to protect you.

and I'm afraid this isn't a drill
not just smoke and sirens
don't the clouds seem a little closer to you?

and she says, go make out with your mirror,
darling, I'm no damsel in distress
and you're sure as hell not Prince Charming
but thanks for the concern, it means a lot.

no, I'm afraid this isn't a drill
not just smoke and sirens
don't the clouds seem a little closer to you?

the sky's falling and it's such a beautiful thing
the sky's falling and it's such a beautiful thing
she says, oh God, it's such a beautiful thing
the sky's falling and it's such a beautiful thing.

and he says I'm afraid this isn't a drill
no, it's not just smoke and sirens this time
so sweetheart tell me, doesn't it seem
like the clouds are a little closer?

because she's striking out on her own at last—
no silver-sparkling armor in this place, love
try just down the street, if you like
hiding under the apple tree.

and she says the sky's falling and it's such a beautiful thing!
