Oh, I know how this ends. Call me a soothsayer if you want But, I can just feel it in my bones. It's like I've seen this all before. Played out like a rewound scene on the DVD special edition. A Hollywood production with top VFX. Look at that! The flat end is pointing up And the pointy end is way under the waves, It must be over soon. Ah! Here comes the bad guy sneaking up... He's behind you! He's behind you! He can't hear us. Too late. The hero has bitten it. Now we have the funeral. So sad! I'll wait at the back, like an understudy, Watching the award-winning cast weeping. Let's get back to the streets, Now the credits are rolling, And the director is waiting for his Oscar.
