When all the satellites fall from the sky When all our data has been hacked by Some kid in a basement with mud in his eye Well I'll still be loving you When all our credit cards have been maxed When all the clean air in our lungs has been taxed And everyone swallows the alternative facts Well I'll still be loving you ‘Cause though the world is in a death spin I cannot lose what I cannot win It doesn't change a single damn thing That I’ll still be loving you When the economy's growth is in decline We're slowly sinking in cold blue brine And a fiddler scratches out Auld Lang Syne Well I’ll still be loving you When all liberty has been seized By the oligarch's and megalomaniac’s squeeze And we're warmed by a radiation breeze Well I’ll still be loving you ‘Cause though the world is in a death spin I cannot lose what I cannot win It doesn't change a single damn thing That I'll still be loving you For I'll remember your kind loving touch It's my very last mental crutch It may mean to you nothing much But I'll still be loving you I will still be loving you...always Now mass extinction is all but complete Closed the buffet of all-you-can-eat And my phone counts down my very last heartbeat But I'm still here… Yeah I'm still here loving you...always

This is it, my love The time has come Time to undo What is over and done I can't take these orders From you anymore I'm tightening up that old belt (again) And closing the door For there's too many strangers Coming in through here And if dark clouds that are gathering Must be your fault, my dear Well it’s 45 years Since you were my bride And now the grass is always greener On the other side Well remember back when A bit before we met I was handsome & strong I’d never broken a sweat Well I'm going back there Cause I was free to roam Yes, riding my wild gold unicorns & not tied to this stone And though we haven’t had a fight We've argued like hell & I always fancied my chances Hey well couldn't ya tell? Now seems hanging out Has made a dint on my pride And the grass is always greener On the other side So this is it, my love The time has come Time to undo What is over and done Now I want to eat the whole cake & I won’t be denied As the grass is always greener…on the other side
