Some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time
Any fucking day
Learn to swim, I'll see you drown in Arizona Bay

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car

It's a bullshit three ring circus sideshow of freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time
Any fucking day
Learn to swim, I'll see you drown in Arizona Bay

Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits

Who some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
'Cause I sure could use a vacation from this
Stupid shit
Silly shit
Stupid shit

One great big festering neon distraction
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied

Learn to swim
Learn to swim
Learn to swim

'Cause Mom's gonna fix it all soon
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be

Learn to swim (repeated several times in the background)

Fuck L. Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones
Fuck all these gun-toting, hip gangster wannabes

Learn to swim (repeated several times in the background)

Fuck retro anything, fuck your tattoos
Fuck all you junkies and fuck your short memory

Learn to swim (repeated several times in the background)

Fuck smiley glad-hands with hidden agendas
Fuck these dysfunctional, insecure actresses

Learn to swim (repeated several times in the background)

'Cause I'm praying for rain
I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way
I wanna watch it all go down
Mom please flush it all away
I wanna see it go right in and down
I wanna watch it go right in
Watch you flush it all away

Time to bring it down again
And don't just call me pessimist
Try and read between the lines

I can't imagine why you wouldn't welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down
Suck it down
Flush it down
