How The World Began lyrics : Jukebox The Ghost

It starts the same as any day The highest all-time tidal wave We’d seen it before so we weren’t afraid That’s how the world began Sun so hot that the hills caught flame Man, you shoulda seen it when it hit L.A. It was sad but it was funny, it’s hard to explain That’s how the world began

It starts the same as any day

The highest all-time tidal wave

We'd seen it before so we weren't afraid

That's how the world began

Sun so hot that the hills caught flame

Man, you shoulda seen it when it hit L.A.

It was sad but it was funny, it's hard to explain

That's how the world began




And a brand moon was born from the deep

And the water sent waves, evenly spaced

They made lines on the shore

To indicate when the holy days were coming

No more beasts or locusts or rising waters

Third world parents with first world daughters

No need for money, for guns, for banks

That's how the world, that's how the world began

That's how the world began




Strangers came on the very next day

As to the reason why, they didn't say

There were abandoned cars on the interstate

That's how the world began

Everything came flooding back in a rush

Your first real love, your high school crush

Nothing else seemed to mean very much

That's how the world began




And the brand new moon that was born from the deep

Hung out over so low I went out to see people out in the streets

Hands in the air to carve their names in the surface

No more floods or plagues or pestilence

No more swords on loan from a government

There's no need for guns, for money, for banks

That's how the world, that's how the world began




Isn't it amazing? The scenery never stops changing

There's a song between stations, it just takes a little patience




And we took all our phones, and we made a great fire

And we shook off our bones, and we chanted around the pyre

And we danced 'til our feet couldn't stand

And we swam til we couldn't see land

Drunk on a world I'll never understand

But they say it's for the good of man

Let me end with the good news:

Nothing to win, nothing to lose

Nowhere to be, nothing to do

That's how the world, that's how the world began
