JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

Another Thousand Years

from Stay

in 1999
we thought the world would end
but January 1
we swept up the mess again

in 2001
we thought the end was near
but years just follow years
and we're still here

maybe the rapture's gonna wait
the rapture's gonna wait
another thousand years
before we're standing at the gate
how do we go on
living day by day
with only human hearts
to guide us on our way

dig beneath the dirt
burn it in the air
throw away our filth
until we smell it everywhere

but the sky don't turn to black
the sea don't turn to blood
the angels don't come down
to raise us from the mud

maybe the rapture's gonna wait
the rapture's gonna wait
another thousand years
before we're standing at the gate
how do we go on
living day by day
with only human hearts
to guide us on our way

I reach out in the dark
as I lie awake at night
my fingers touch another hand like mine
I hold onto it tight
I want to see my kingdom come
I'm praying for escape
or else we'll have to fix
what we took so long to break

maybe the rapture's gonna wait
the rapture's gonna wait
another thousand years
before we're standing at the gate
how do we go on
living day by day
with only human hearts
to guide us on our way
