Lyrics

Octavia:
From here, you can see the end of the world
Out there, the tide is changing
From here, you can feel the fire raging
but I’m safe, and I’m here, and I’m home.

Octavia & Valerie:
Out there, you can hear the start of the war
Out there, the mothers crying
In here, I can feel my freedom fading,
but I’m safe, and I’m here, and I’m home.

Octavia:
They ask why--

Valerie:
--they pound their chests in misery.

Octavia:
They ask how--

Valerie:
--they chorus for revenge.

Octavia:
They ask who--

Valerie:
--would ever want to hurt us?

Both:
And so, here we are:
at the end of the world.

Both:
In here, I remember reading the words
that ye shall reap what ye sow.
So now, we see the towers falling
and we watch, and we wait, and we’ll see.

Valerie:
They ask why--

Octavia:
They stand in shock, bewildered

Valerie:
They ask how--

Octavia:
--how did our defenses fail?

Valerie:
They ask who--

Octavia:
--who could ever see this coming?

Both:
We could!
We did!
The writers
at the end of the world.

We heard, we saw, we knew.
The writers
at the end of the world,
at the end of the world,
at the end of the world.
