Trigger for the Apocalypse
Music and Lyrics: Chuck Baker

Let's head on down to the casino to bug the moneychangers
Your shirt can say “good luck” and mine can say “bad”
We'll walk up and down the long, long lines
They'll look in our eyes like they're being had

We'll get dressed up in our three-piece suits
You know we're gonna need someone to drive the getaway car
We'll burst into the bank and yell at the top of our lungs
“It's going to be O.K. do you know where you are?”

It's another trigger for the Apocalypse
And we don't want any part of it now

We'll get some apples and oranges down at the market
We'll hold them up high and to the passersby
We'll ask, “which one are you?”
We'll cup the oranges hard in our hands and spin them around
Till the pock marked surface is sanded apple smooth

It's another trigger for the Apocalypse
And we don't want any part of it now

Are these the end of the days I'm living in
Building up the pieces and wrecking them down
We'll run and hide when the guards happen ‘round

Please won't you join this guerrilla daydream?
You've said enough just by being here
I'm sure that we could all think of a brilliant scheme
And work it all out if the end was near

It's another trigger for the Apocalypse
And we don't want any part of it now
It's just another trigger for the Apocalypse
And we don't want any part of it now
