Nostradamus - hints at what's supposed to harm us.
You say it's interpretation mess
Who can figure out a thing he says - Nostradamus


Lyrics:
Dreading Armageddon ©1997 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

Yeah I remember when they took that picture
That's you on the right always looking to the light
And since the photo has some depth, now you can see me on the left
And sense that I'm the one who's dreading Armageddon

(Chorus)
Nostradamus - hints at what's supposed to harm us.
You say it's interpretation mess
Who can figure out a thing he says - Nostradamus

Just another gorgeous day - the kind that chases blues away
We hike the trails to see what's growing - speak of friends named Michael Cohen
Still I wouldn't dare have fun while dreading Armageddon

CIones and mutations - could steal the United Nations
You say I'm reading way too much sci-fi
You'd hate to be the one inside my mind - clones and mutations

"Que sera - what'll be will be", sez you - as I scream, "There'll be no trees!"
And what about all those kids and kittens - will all that's cute be all that's smitten
In the hell that's sure to come - aren't you dreading Armageddon?

Toxic waste in leaky casks - you say most life forms can adapt.
I find your optimistic outlook weird
And keep on canning fruit so we'll be prepared - Radiation

Impending doom stuck in my head - if we don't change - Earth will be dead
There'll be no place to run and hide and it'll suck to be alive
Kick ourselves, we're so damn dumb
For sparking Armageddon - starting Armageddon

Crazed anti-christ, who's full of hate, will be revealed - Oy, it's too late!
And will their weapons all be set on stun
You're stunned how skewed I view these predictions - megalomaniac

Yeah, I remember when they took that picture
That's you on the right always looking to the light
And you don't have to get too near to see who's paralyzed with fear
Yeah, I admit that I'm the one who's dreading Armageddon …
