lyrics

I stopped rewinding my VHS rentals weeks ago
Blockbuster called my house, I’ve still got three on loan
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
I’m preparing for the last days
The kids at school all say that I’m crazed
I never liked them anyway
They laugh cause I always sport the same cargo pants
But it’s just that I’ve packed all my jeans and my slacks
And my t-shirts, and tube socks and sweaters and scarfs
I can’t predict the climate, but I know CPR

This is how I’ll survive the 90s
This is how I’ll make it out alive
This is how I’ll survive the 90s
This is how I’ll come out still alive

I’ve got 3 suitcases full of non-perishable food goods
Hidden beneath my bed
I can’t wait for the millennium to end
Or for that douchebag on my bus to drop dead
I’ve got 52 weeks worth of meager allowances
Combined with the funds earned from shoveling driveways
Stuffed in a strongbox on the floor of my closet
Where fire or flood can neither burn it nor rot it

This is how I’ll survive being fifteen
The armegeddon holds such brighter days for me
This is how I’ll survive being fifteen
The armegeddon holds such brighter days for me

The end is nigh, as I sigh I can feel it
The apocalypse will hit and I’ll be the only one to deal with it
And heal the world, and witness all my classmates who had cursed me
Turn to dirt beneath my feet, screaming that they’re thirsty
As I sip a big-ass milk jug that I filled with filtered water
Who the hell knew that hell could get any hotter?

Y2K, here I come
I’ve got my N64 and my BB gun
Y2K, here I come
I’ve got my N64 and my BB gun
Y2K, here I come
