My city is underwater. The military is here. The rain won't stop. I'm one of the lucky few who live high, high above the flood waters, and who's able to get to my nearly empty office building. So, I'm dubbing this Apocalypse Week.
"And the great day of wrath has come
And here's mud in your big red eye
The poker's in the fire
And the locusts take the sky
And the Earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you"

And everywhere I look there's a devil waiting
Got a devil's haircut in my mind"
